    HELP!!! Lazy fish with poor bladder control

    A week ago, my clown started laying on his side for about 5 seconds at a time, then he'd start swimming again, normally. I started checking everything in this little 10 gallon tank and noticed the water temperature was only at 68 degrees F. I keep this in my office with an analog titanium...

    HQI Ballast/Bulb question

    I recently purchased a MH fixture with a 150W MH and 2 x 14 w T5 actinics. I haven't installed it on my tank yet since I just got it in, but i have had thoughts that maybe a 150W MH is too much for my 18 Gal. Since the ballast is set up for 150 watts, does that mean i HAVE to use a 150 watt...

    Does anyone remember the guy on here....probably 4 or 5 years ago with the 550 gallon reef that he had in the wall in his office? Do you remember the 6.5 ft long bristle worm he pulled out of his plenum? I am looking for pictures from that guys tank and the bristleworm. Any help?

    Cleaner shrimp and feather duster

    This morning my FD lost his crown, so I knew it was pretty much over from that point for him. Around lunch he crawled out of his tube, which I expected. I know he is going to die, no doubt there, but he's not dead yet. The question I have is: is it normal for a cleaner shrimp to eat a worm...

    Hitchhiker forum

    Didn't there used to be a forum or atleast a thread totally dedicated solely to hitchhikers? I think it'd be cool to have an ID database sticky threaded to the top of this forum with pics and questions. I mean heck, we've got a forum dedicated to breeding clowns, why not one for the thousands...

    Shark and Eel purchases

    Where do you guys order your sharks, rays and eels from? I mean I dont recall seeing sharks and rays on, so do your LFS's order them for you or what? I know I can get bamboo sharks from my LFS, but I don't really think I've ever seen anything but a zebra moray as far as eels go. I've...

    pH/Alk relationship

    Can you tell the condition of your Alk by checking the pH? I don't have a Alkalinity test kit and I don't have the money to pay the LFS to test for it. I am wanting to dose my Ca but I don't want to do it too much because I don't know where my Alk is at. I currently am using IO salt and I've...
