    Pyramidellid Snails???

    Is it possible to have Pyramidellid Snails populating your tank without the presence of clams? I know they are known to also attach to other snails, but I have never seen this in my tank. However, at night I can probably count about a dozen small whit cone-shaped snails on my live rock. About...

    Scarlets and blue legs??? Together??

    Not of the Star Trek kind.... Just wondering if anyone has had any problems mixing scarlet hermits and blue leg hermits? The LFS was no help. I know the scarlets are pretty much among the most docile of the hermits, but I wonder if the blue legs would harrass the scarlets. Any experiences...

    Clown Tang at LFS

    LFS had a beautiful Clown Tang for $24, about 6 inches long. Almost broke my heart to see him there. If I had a bigger tank I would have bought him, just to give him a fighting chance, even though I have heard that their survival rate is low. He was not shy at all, constantly swimming by the...

    My Emerald crab....the freeloader!

    My one emerald crab is sooo lazy. I hardly ever see him cleaning the rocks. But when I feed the fish he is right there to pick up the scraps. Oh and he love to sit and eat my caluerpa. Just not the GREEN HAIR or BUBBLE ALGEA I bought him for. Oh well, I have two ECs, at least one works, busy...
