    Moving Tank to New House

    In the next month I'm moving my 36 gallon reef tank to a new house which is about 3 hours away. I'm wondering how I should go about this process and if anybody has any advice. Thanks

    what would you suggest to get rid of them. I'm afraid they may be covering my xenia too much to the point that they could be harmful. Any responses appreciated

    "yellow" watchman goby

    my faithful yellow watchman goby, which I've had for a year and a half now just recently has lost his color. He's now a very dull yellow and i'm worried about him. He still acts the same and is eating well, and none of my other fish are having any color problems. Is this a problem that comes...

    Metal Halides

    I currently have a 175 watt 10,000k metal halide set up on my tank, but the bulb is getting old and I'm going to get a new one. Do I have to stick with the 10,000k or can I switch it up and get the 20,000 and still use my current ballast?

    CPR bakpak smimmer

    I have this skimmer set up on my tank, but it is pretty loud and it makes it difficult to sleep in my room. Would it be best to turn the valve all the way off so its not skimming, but the water is still flowing through it or to unplug it at night or to just put some earplugs in and deal with it?

    very aggresive clown

    My percula clown which I've had for about 4 months and is about 3 inches long has been overly aggresive these past couple weeks towards the new corals I've put in my tank.

    36 gallon bowfront

    I've had my tank up and running for a while and just purchased a new filter, but encountered a problem. It doesn't quite fit because of this plastic strip across the middle. Does this strip provide support? or what is its purpose? I'd like to cut it off, but I'm guessing that wouldn't be a...

    long spine urchin

    I've read that an adult urchin may go after inverts for food. Would that include cleaner shrimp or an anemone? I have a pretty big scarlet cleaner shrimp and rbta and also a medium sized long spine urchin. Could this be a problem?

    alternative hosts

    Does anyone have any suggestions on alternative hosts for percula clowns other than anemones? I have sufficient lighting for one, but I don't want to have to leave my mom with an anemone to care for when I go out of town in a couple weeks. Any suggestions appreciated.
