    Three Yr Old Ocellaris

    Went away on vacation for 10 days and my 3 year old ocellaris in my 10 gallon tank developed a slight mucus on her dorsal fin. The water quality remained the same throughout our absence, however, we had big swings in temperature (according to my thermometer) 79--88 degrees (&^%$#$#% nanos!). I...

    Jellyfish Tanks?

    Was surfing around last night and came across on some salwater site, species specific jelly fish tanks. I've never seen one, outside Monterey Bay Aquarium, before. Does anyone have one, or know someone who does? I didn't even know you could order jellyfish.

    IceCap 660

    Now that I can finally see summer is coming, I've started to think about taking that next step in reef keeping which, I believe, leads to better looking and healthier tanks. I'm tossing the pre-fab lighting systems over my tanks, and trying to customize the lighting subject to the requirements...

    Alk/Ca Depletion from Coralline Algae?

    Got any hitchhiker photos? I'll post the photo of the only interesting hitchhiker I've had over the past three years. This guy came from a batch of live rock I got from a LFS, and has grown 3x. When my wife originally spotted him in my invert tank he was the size of my pinky fingernail.

    Are nano tanks beneficial to the hobby?

    I ask this question with the best of intentions. More of a chance, maybe, for this forum to look inward a bit and to discuss the ease of entry, and relative low cost to stock and maintain. Is it beneficial in the long run, or is it not?

    Ricordea Care

    Hey All-- Have a pair at the bottom of my 10g (under 96w) and they don't appear to be doing very well. They've failed the DNLR test :happy: .........was wondering if anyone has had these in their nanos. At what depth, under what lights, etc, etc. Maybe I'm expecting too much in two weeks...
