I'm interested in frags of pom pom xenia, frogspawn, different colored mushrooms or anything else I don't have. The purple shrooms in the blurry picture...

The background is painted blue which can be easily changed. The trim is painted black to match the stand. Pick up...

    Catching a coral beauty

    Anyone have any tips on how to catch one of these guys. I've left my net in the tank for about a week now and tried to scoop him out durring feeding, but I haven't really come close yet. There's gotta be a better way. Any ideas would be great before he nips my corals to death.

    I'm told they are going to start using this in our city water and we need to add a calgon catalytic carbon filter to our RO/DI unit because this chemical is harder to remove than chlorine. Has anyone else heard of this?

    Coral beauty & Flame

    Has anyone tried to keep the two in the same tank? I've heard that if you add them at the same time there's a good chance they can coexist. Any one tried this?

    Instead of taking 48 hours to lower the salinity we took about 5 days. Our fish started showing signs of Ick right before the 4th of July so we took out all the sand and live rock and started hypo.
