    help, i'm dying

    the nitrates are most likely the problem. you should do a water change with RO/DI water and keep an eye on the nitrates closely. what type of fish do you have in there? how long has your tank been cycled? by the way - the "flower coral" you referred to looks like a cabbage leather (sinularia...

    Not new, but what is going on with all this algae?

    your tap water is most likely the problem. if you can eliminate the input of phosphates by the use of RO/DI water, you can start to get the problem under control. this website sells RO/DI units in the drygoods section. check those out and find one that would work best for your needs.

    Need help on compatabilaty QUICK!

    do you have a fish store closeby? if so, most will take fish and give you store credit for them. if so, take the fish to them and set the tank up without having to worry about losing fish. then, after you have the tank set up, running, and stabilized, get some fish.

    Mixing Dwarfs?

    keep a close eye on them... if one starts beating the other up too badly or stressing the other out, you may want to consider removing one or the other.

    Need help on compatabilaty QUICK!

    i think that the rest of the fish you mentioned will be fine together in that size tank. im not really sure about the lobsters honestly... if i recall correctly, they get pretty large, but i have never kept one. anyone out there have experience with lobsters?

    Beginner At Saltwater!!!!!!!!!!!

    swimrnum1- first, the tang and the butterflies will get too large for your tank, and the coral beauty will need more swimming room to be happy. second, let me suggest an excellent book for beginners.. its called The Conscientious Marine Aquarist by Robert M. Fenner. i would definately check...

    Originally posted by Dacia 11 types of corals alone would cost around $400 I wish I could find good deals like that around here! :thinking: not really sure where that figure came from, but im pretty sure i wouldnt pay $600 for it... then again, its not my money, so spend it as you wish!! :D

    Dried up mushroom?

    flush him?!??!? i definately wouldnt do that... mushrooms are one of the most hardy species of coral, and they will sometimes do what you are describing if they are damaged. if your water parameters are ok, then the mushroom should recover soon.

    Mixing Dwarfs?

    what size tank do you have them in? fish aggression can vary from specimen to specimen... a friend of mine has had as many as 3 dwarf angels in a 100 gallon (not that i recommend this) with little or no aggression. personally i wouldnt even attempt 2 dwarf angels in anything under a 100 gallon...
