    snowflake morays with crustaceans

    Though mine has never got out of the tank, I am told they can survive for some time out of the water. Even if they seem dead and had dried up some. I was told to put them in a bucket of water from my tank to be sure if they are dead because many times they will start to breath and will recover...

    300 Gal - Which Sea Life Do You Recommend?

    I am new to salt water fish myself and can only recommend from my own mistakes. Be sure to research before you buy. Dont put a trigger or a puffer in a reef tank. They will eat almost anything they can get in thier mouth. I have seen my puffer suck up hermit crabs and try to crush thier shells...

    hippo tang

    I ordered a hippo tang from swf. Are they the same thing as an Regal tang? From what I see of a regal tang at my lfs is the huge price difference. My lfs of course told me buying a hippo was a bad idea, and that they stay small. Depending on size they wanted between 45 and 70 for one. I of...

    Grocery store seafood

    I buy unfrozen bags of mixed seafood , shrimp, squid, octopus, cuddle fish, etc. at Wal Mart. Been feeding my Snowflake eel and puffer this for 3 months. They still live. Buying $10.00 a week in live Ghost shrimp was just not the way to go. My fish never seemed happy with frozen Krill. I tried...

    Ammonia 4.0: URGENT!

    I would get some STRESS ZYME from walmart and dump some in. It has the germs that eat the ammonia. Safe for fresh and salt water. I have used it. Did you say you change out your bio-wheel? They are never spose to be replaced from what I have been told. Also I would get Aquamarine nitrate...

    For preventing cyano on a DSB:

    I have 2 horseshoe crabs which keep my bed stirred. But I was recomeded against it by one of the members here. All I can say is my sand bed is clean and white. Don't know if the long term effects are good or bad. I will have to just wait and see. The Horseshoe crabs have been there for 3 months.

    Nitrate Remover

    I went out on low tide out to my chest. Had a 5 gallon bucket with a lid. Held my breath and went under, was not an easy task. Transferred the sand to a 60 Quart cooler and also added sea water. Ended up with a bonus of 1 very small jelly fish, which only lasted about two weeks in my tank. I...
