    My first sting

    I was in my tank doing this or that and brushed up against my frogspawn which I've done before but this time I got a pretty good little sting from it. More surprised me than anything but did feel like a pretty good mosquito bite. I guess I'll have to be more careful in the future.

    Humidity in the house -- any solutions?

    I run 2 - 100g tanks and I get about 3 gallons of evaporation a day. When we reach really cold temps the windows frost up which isn't a really big deal but the problem I'm having is frost in the attic of the house. The insulation lays over the flat roof -- you pop the access cover to the attic...

    Shocking, prices actually went down.

    Last year I bought 250w 14k's phoenix bulbs 3 for 155 bucks and thought that was a good deal. This year they are 148. It's like I'm saving money running 2 saltwater tanks (yeah right)

    Hermit Crab Lifespan

    Anyone know the average age hermit crabs live? Like the blue legged kind? After about 2 years I have a hard time finding more than 5 of my orginal 100 I put in my tank and no they are not starving. I do hear a lot of clicking at night so I'm wondering if a pistol shrimp is picking them off slowly

    My try at some homemade fish food (they went crazy)

    Basically I had two packages of seafood mix (asian market), half a stick of cyclop-eeze, 4 sheets of nori, a small package of krill and a few good squirts of selcon. Ran it through the food processor until most all of the chunks were gone (I missed a couple but the shrimp or starfish can have...

    Panther Grouper

    Have a local that needs to get rid of his 3" panther grouper after it ate his clownfish. Cute when small but really quick. It'd be fun to have an aggressive tank but still not sure how I want to set up my secondary tank (mainly a large frag tank). Right now I have a clown and two shrimp in...

    Better weekend for water changes

    Well 2 weekends ago water changes sucked. I killed some coral and 3 of the 4 fish in my frag tank due to what I'm calling dish soap poisoning. Main tank was fine but I changed water in my frag tank about an hour or two after doing dishes with terrible results and can't believe the one fish...

    Need some input on what everyone would do

    I have a main display tank full of fish/corals but after losing 3 out of 4 of the fish in my frag tank (due to something toxic) I'm looking at what to do. The one clown left has completely recovered and lives with a RBTA, a few small shrimp and corals. The tank is 3 feet by 4 feet and 12 inches...

    Thinking about selling my frag tank

    Been tossing this around lately and although I like the tank and that I built it -- being wide and long and short for growing out coral I haven't had the time I should devout for it and it's also in a room where no one besides me ever sees it. I dunno I might put feelers out there on CL and see...

    Any ideas on how to find a pair of bonded/egg laying clowns?

    Since the death of the 3 out of 4 fish in my frag tank (due to I'm still thinking dish soap) I'm thinking about putting a breeding pair of clowns in it. The one clown recovered but I could put him in the main tank and get two more in there with my RBTA and hopefully get some eggs to try raising...
