    detrivore kits

    NM did you ever follow thru with your plans?? I'm working over the idea if I want to do this myself or not and have a question about acclimation. I have a FOWLR and don't want to get one of these kits just to have instant, expensive fish food. Does keeping the lights off for 24 hrs really help...

    New Acylic Tank Bulging at center

    My 50 gal. acrylic bows in the front. Maybe just as much as your 500 gal. I don't know exactly but the acrylic is no more than 2/8" thick. The top is a solid, routed piece. It's been holding water for a long time. I've had it for about 3 1/2 years and my brother-in-law had it before that. I say...

    Bought a new Cleaner shrimp Yesterday

    My cleaner shrimp doesn't clean my maroon clown, not that I've seen anyway but does clean my cromis and the two tangs that I have. I feed it flakes and it will also go after frozen brine/mysis sometimes. They molt alot. Like once a month.

    ID fi you can

    Last night I noticed something. I have a turbo snail (Trochus to be exact), well just the shell, (the snails gone) in my tank. I saw one of the bumps on the snail move.

    Sound like it might be diatom algae to me. Maybe post more info such as water parameters, how long you keep the lights on, how big is your clean up crew if you have any at all... maybe even post a pic if possible. HTH

    "do over" -- what to do with fish?

    I'd still take them to the LFS. They might not give you as much $ as you paid for them but they should give you something if not store credit.
