    Anyone have Cleaner Shrimp and Coral Banded Shrimp

    I have a cbs and a cleaner for over a year. The cleaner just stays out of the cbs's way. I like how the cbs thinks he is the king of the tank.

    Linckia and Bali Star

    I currently have a Blue Linckia and it is doing fine. A red bali star at a pet shop has caught my eye. He(or she) is about 1 1/2 inch from tip to tip. Will these guys compete for food or do they eat a different diet? I understand not much is known about the Linckia diet but what do we know...

    My refug ideas

    If I do it that way wouldent 700 gph in a 10 gal fuge be too much flow?(70x turnover rate)

    My refug ideas

    The filter sock is not in the fuge is in the sump which is after the fuge. (ie water from display tank -> 1/2 water to sump other 1/2 water to fuge .... fuge water to sump and back to display. (not very clear but kinda understandable)

    My refug ideas

    The reason for me not putting the fuge overflow into the sock is I think I will loose the pods from the fuge. I am concerned about stuff from the fuge getting into my pump so I am thinking about ways to stop that (baffles etc..)
