    Fish stocking/addition question

    I wouldn't add them all at once. If you just cycled you aren't ready to support the food needs of a blenny or a wrasse. How much live rock do you have int tank? The blenny is going to need a lot of algae to eat and the wrasse is going to need a lot of worms and pods. Your tank probably won't be...

    Fourline and Sixline Wrasse

    There are a lot of things to consider. Wrasses stake out territory. How big is the tank? How established is the tank? How much grazing room on the live rock is in the tank? What other fish are in the tank? Wrasses are super cool fish. If it is at all questionable and it is in this case then why...

    ICE - How much do I add ? I am having a nervous breakdown..

    I think your temp fluctuations are the worst of your problems although 89 is high! Fluctuating between 78 and 89 in 12 hours is a real problem. 85 is fine for a reef tank. Have you tried running your lighting period starting in the night to bring the temp up from the 78 and having the lights go...

    help to much hair

    In my opinion, the move is part of the problem. No telling what you stirred up in the move. Possibly the sunlight also. I'd do about a 30% water change, RO, wait a week, do a 25%, wait a week do a 15%. Your tank should have stablized by then and you should of gotten rid of your problem. I think...

    A ticked off teacher!

    The odd thing about this thread is the "generation gap". A lot of the parents of high schoolers these days were the ones supposedly protesting the VietNam war, burning flags and dodging the draft and refusing to say the pledge of allegience. Our parents and teachers told us we had no respect for...

    Who's your favorite Comedian?

    My favorite is Eddie Izzard,yes, he's the British guy in drag. Very intelligent humor - love his history of the world and religion stuff. I also love Robin Williams and Steve Martin. Has anyone heard Robert Kline's colonoscopy song? It's hysterical.

    New Zoanthids & Cleanup Crew

    FWIW I have an emerald and zoanthids, don't do hermits. My emerald will pick algae from between my polyps and they generally close up. I'm with smarls. I don't think it's the crab and I wouldn't take them out.

    Colt dying?Should I trash it?

    I fit's closed up tight, I'd wait a few days. If it's a melting blob of goo I'd get it out. I had a beautiful one do that and I have yet to find out what the problem was.

    New Zoanthids & Cleanup Crew

    The certihs are just doing their cleanup thing. Clean up critterslove new pieces in the tank. They won't hurt the zoanthids but, will clean around them.+ By the way, very nice zoanthids

    Yikes!!! Another mistake!

    Do you test for ca, alk and ph? They all interact. There is some good info on this sight regarding the relationship between these three. Try a search. The very best way to quickly get chemistry back in line is to do a couple rather large (30%) quality water changes. I'd run some carbon too but...

    hair algae

    Do you have new lighting or old bulbs that need to be changed out? - if so lighting can be part of the problem. If not, then an extended lighing period will only "add" to the existing problem. Proper lighting will not "cause" hair algae. 8 - 10 hours a day is fair for a tank. You only have a 24...

    Yikes!!! Another mistake!

    Possibly not. Water changes. I'd get some RO/DI and do a 30% water change. Give it a week and do another one. You may not have time to aereate the first change but be sure it's temp is correct and it's well mixed to same sg with a powerhead. Get your second water change ready a couple days ahead...

    hair algae

    The emerald crab will get along fine but, it may or may not eat hair algae. Mine never did. You need to stop feeding the algae, get rid of the phosphates. Try a phosphate/silicate sponge (follow directions carefully) and do 20-25% water changes every couple of weeks. Use RO/DI water and scrub...

    knots - if someone asked me to prove that everything I did was done because that was Jamie's wish there is NO WAY I could prove it. On many of the issues I could only say because she told me and hope the Doctor and the Priest backed me up on the parts they knew about. I have no way to know for...
