    Jelly Fish Tank

    The website says that jellyfish can be added within an hour of the globe being set up, but what about the cycling process?

    Power Head Help

    Sounds like something's off with the impeller (sp?). I'd take a close look to make sure nothing's cracked.

    Sump Questions

    The HOB filter bag should work fine, but you need to be able to tie it off at the top so no charcoal gets out.

    Murky water

    Filtration definitely helps. I'd keep that going for sure.

    What are these things???

    The red stuff may be the beginnings of coralline algae, especially if they are tough to get off the glass... But without seeing a picture it's hard to tell. I'm pretty sure that you can buy scrapers that can do the trick of removing them, if they bother you.

    stowaway id?

    This one might give more detail; when I try and make the other picture bigger, I lose resolution. There's fringe on the front pair of legs, by the by.

    ohh no rid ich and feather dusters

    Yup, a water change is a good idea. Have you moved the fish into quarantine?

    stowaway id?

    I'm attaching a picture of a trio of crabs that arrived with my live rock, and am hoping to get some info to identify them. The largest is about 1.5 inches and very compressed dorso-ventrally; very good for sliding into cracks in the rock, as I found out. They each have one pair of long...

    A pistol shrimp comaptibilty question....

    The pistols I've seen are pretty friendly and don't bother anyone. I doubt you'll have any trouble from yours. :)

    In tank refugium.

    Pods are pretty good at hiding. I only see ones in my display tank after all the lights are out, and even then they keep a low profile.

    Is it dead?

    Do you think it might be shedding? They do that from time to time.

    Are these worms harmful?

    Almost looks like a little bristleworm. I leave mine alone, since they haven't eaten anything important and they are detritovores (I think).

    I found out why I am losing all my new additions, how can I fix it-?

    How are you doing the acclimation? I've drip acclimated for about 2 hrs without seeing an appreciable temp change between waters. I'd make sure your water parameters are good, as well as adding a small heater to the acclimation bucket (just in case).

    Probably starvation.

    Ideal water conditions?

    ...The ideal conditions for what exactly? Some parameters depend on what you want to keep, is why I ask.

    Surface Scum problem

    I don't know what size tank you have, but I have a 10gal and when the surface scums up, I use a paper towel for manual skimming. It works pretty well for me.

    Hydor Flo Rotating Water Deflector

    I have a Hydor. I like it, and would buy another one, but I also agree that a wave maker is probably a better deal.

    To Scrape or Not To Scrape

    If it's coraline algae, I leave it on the back but scrape the front and sides (well I will in a minute), but the rest of the algae I scrape off no matter where it is.

    Weird Death?

    I dunno if you've mentioned this in a different thread, but how old is your tank? And I echo the previous question of acclimation methods.
