    strange sand question

    The tension that the mag float creates can cause the sand to attract to it. its best not to get the float near the sand so it wont pick up the sand. until it gets seeded completely with bacteria it will be easy to transfer it to the mag float. also the mag float padding will pick up the sand if...

When you say they are in low light and low flow what type of lights and flow do you have on...

    Does the "stinging" of a lionfish hurt the fish?

    just keep an eye on him. the actual stinging part should not hurt the lion fish but the rocks are jagged and if he darted into them he may have hurt himself trying to get away from your husband. When he does show back up look at his body and make sure there are not any sores that are infected...

    Lighting Question!?

    The anemone will need much more light than the standard stock lights can provide. Look into PC lights or t-5 they are pretty cheap for that size tank and you will see dramatic results in growth and color. Welcome to the board and ask anything you might want to. Mike

I also had my reef tank so I was on a 2 fold mission I would spend at least 2 days a month traveling around to the different stores for the perfect critter. Very...
