    Please help. I had this trigger for nearly 2 years now, and everything was fine until yesterday afternoon when he looked disoriented and swimming in a crazy way. Today he won't even come out. We introduced some new damsels to the tank last Friday, and one has disappeared so far. We know this...

    Giving Up - Its not all it's cracked up to be

    We have our SWFO tank since 1999, and changed to a 150 from 125 in 2003. Trust me, in order to have a nice aquarium, not only do you need a lot of patience, you also need to accept the fact that you are going to spend a lot of $. If I count the price we have paid on lost fish, it will add up...

    Flakes VS Pellets

    I mix both pellets and flakes and frozen cube with vitamins and tank water before dumping them into the tank. This way all my fish will get to the food, and pick the kind they like.

    what kind of tang?

    I agree that Tangs need lots of swimming rooms. I was told 125 gallon is the minumum for tangs.

    How my Friday went...

    Did you buy it new? Is it still under warranty? If it is, you should call the manufacturer and ask for refund and compensation. Good luck!

    screwed up again.....copper...any solution? Help asap

    I know my husband used a polyfilter to get rid of the copper. It will take several days, and several polyfilter. It will come out from the water, but the rocks and sands will absorb the copper. The rocks may come back live again, as our rocks are coming back live now. You really need a QT.

    chevron tang experience

    Just got one home for about a week. So far he has been doing well, nipping at algaes the whole day. To be honest, we did not decide to buy a chervon tang until we see an adult chevron. The adult one will be mainly black, with the faded patterns on the body. I was told it will be a great...

    chevron or flagfin

    We just got a Chevron 3 days ago. Its absolutely beautiful! As to the flagfin, we were told to stay away from it, because its very difficult to keep. Both are beautiful fish for sure!

    Luck with Potter's Angels

    We had one for about 6 months, until we had an ick outbreak. He always go after the algaes, and is a cute little fish to have. We loved him dearly! If you get one, good luck with it.:)
