    I really appreciate the info! aarone, I took on out, cut it open and they are full of dirty looking water. Kind of a tough, thin, plastic like shell and definately not just a bubble. NM reef, thanks for the advice. I have one Emerald Crab and he spends most of his time picking stuff off the...

    Silver Bubbles

    That is kind of what I thought. No little critters will eat that stuff? Between all my snails, hermits and shrimp my tank has stayed nice and tight, but it does not look like anything wants any part of the bubble algae?

    Silver Bubbles

    Got big (1/2in across) and little silver bubbles showing up around the tank on the rock? At first I thought that was where all my baby snails were coming from? I have about 10 or so around the tank and took one off and cut it open and it is just full of water? Anyone got any ideas to what...

    Anyone have any take on sea cucumbers? I have a little more detritus around the sand then I would like and thought about throwing a sand sifting star in there and was reading a little about cucumbers. Everythink I read says they are real hard to keep and if they die there is a good possibility...

    Dead Goby?

    Ya, that was why I grabbed the camera. That was the first I saw of him, in total, sense I put him in there 4 days ago? That star is always under the rocks or inbetween them to where you can only see the end of its legs. Not sure why he cruised out for that breif moment? My water levels are...

    Get this blue velvet damsel out of my tank!

    Agree, take out the rock and get it overwith. I just took out six damsels today! Tried everything over last couple of weeks (trap, coke bottle, quick net....) and only taking out the rock did the job. One problem, I was really happy with the look of my reef before removing and now I'm not...

    Never done it, but heard some popping noises coming from new LR and read up on it. Turned out to be my Trigger in my other tank across the room, but anyway I read a lot about mantis shrimp. Says to locate the residence of the shrimp, be patient and wait for it to go into its cavity (hole)...

    Getting fish out of tank

    Anybody have any ideas? I have 1 yellow damsel, 3 yellow tail damsel, 1 two stripe damsel and 1 four stripe damsel that I used to help cycle my tank. I know, I know I did not need to use the damsels my LFS put them in there, but that was before I started to do all the research. How can I get...
