    Crabs Wanted!

    Im not sure if this should be posted in this forum, but its my best bet...... I keep a mantis, yes one of those dreaded, yet highly intelligent devils. And as my bank account knows, the price of their neccesary treat once per week is exceedingly high, as they can get atrophy in their "smashers"...

    Ok the .7 gallon tank, for real.

    Well you all saw my idea for the .9 gallon tank. Well now ive decided to downsize. I found a tiny triple betta deco kit, with dividing walls. And it measures at exactly .7 gallon. I cut out the dividing walls, a very hard process as it turned out, because of how they were layed out, as you...

    Homemade frag bases.

    These are a DIY frag base, easy, cheap, and no cure time neccesary. All you need is instant-thinset glue, such as krazy glue. Wear Gloves for this, as it bonds extremely well, fast, and to skin. Just take a small handfull of sand, preferably old sand, place into mold and let it dry. Then...

    Need an odd SPS ID

    This is an interesting SPS, I found it in my LFS's frag tank, it had overgrown the frag plug, and had overgrown onto the plastic holders. Oddly enough it was under very minimal light, just some of the basic PC lighting that we use for softies. It is reddish brown, with extremely small blue...

    Martensii butterfly

    I was wondering, and I know it is kind of a stupid question. But does anyone think I could keep a Martensii butterfly, in a system with some LPS, some aptasia to munch on, and a rose anemone, guarded by clowns.

    Pairing diamond gobies.

    I am wondering if there is any way to tell diamond gobies apart, gender wise. Or is it just luck, when they get paired.

    Clown lost a few scales to my clam.

    My clam a few days a go was knocked down during a re-aquascaping porcess, it fell again a few minutes ago, and my clown hates me, so the clown tried to ram my hand, it missed, got its head stuck in the clam. It pulled out, but it looks like it is slightly injured on the gill covering. She is...
