    Tang vs. Butterlfy. Round 1

    I have a 75 gallon reef with nothing but a cleanup crew and a medium yellow tang in it. Today I bought a Copper banded buttlerfly fish to join the tank.

    OT: OU/USC collision course?

    Are there any college football fans in the boards? If so, I hope your team is not getting ready to face Oklahoma! It looks like they might just have this thing wrapped up this year. Is there anyone that can give them a game? Your opinions please.

    Zebra Moray Eel- What to feed him?

    In the past, I've always fed him silversides. He just won't eat anything but my cleanup crew anymore. I've tried cochels, sand eels, raw shrimp, and cuttlefish. Does anyone have any suggestions? This is getting expensive!

    I have a large bubbletip an. in my 75 gallon reef. He decides to roam the tank about every 4-6 months. He will be footed down and appear happy for 4 to 6 months and one day he just decides to take a walk. The problem is, he always gets himself sucked into a powerhead. He did this tonight for...

    Seaclone skimmer question

    SWF do not sell Seaclone skimmers (at least I didn't see any listed in the dry goods section). Where can I go online to get a good price on one. Also, I was checking out some of the skimmers here on the SWF site, what do you guys think about the Prizm skimmer they have there? The caption says...
