    Would Phytoplankton replace spot feeding my duncan coral or any other coral?

    I know many prefer uncooked seafood to hold the nutrients in but regardless, if your main purpose is to keep him occupied he'll still gobble it up...just give him a small piece, it'll last him for hours.

    Would Phytoplankton replace spot feeding my duncan coral or any other coral?

    I did a google for Boxer shrimp and came up with Coral Banded shrimp pics? that another name for em? If so, have a CBS as well. Best advice is to spot feed him a piece of freeze dried krill that's been presoaked and squeezed in tank water. With the way they eat, that little piece of Krill...

    Lexel sealant

    I just bought this for my Corals. Works great, bonds underwater. Only complaints I read is the product turns white.....which did not deter me from purchase as it only means the user put way too much for it to show, coralline algae will cover it up in time, add substrate or small rocks in...

    Protein Skimming: What, Why and When

    On the subject of skimmers I was afraid my skimmet collection can was going to overflow within hours as my skimmer was going heywire and lots of excess was coming out. On a normal cycle I don't have to worry about it for weeks before I dump the residue out. This morning it was just...

    Saltwater in Marineland Silhouette Glass 3 Gallon LED Aquarium?

    As the other poster mentioned, the lower the volume of water greater chance it's going to spike quickly so you'll need to be very careful on the portions of your feedings and religious with water changes. That said, you can go with a Firefish, I just bought mine and have him in a 30 gallon...

    Hey there feeling confused by all the info

    Common clown fish are pretty popular and a pair will flourish in your 30 gallon. Kids also like Clown Fish as well as it reminds them of Nemo, lol so they'll pressure their parents to get one. There are many google links to clown fish breeding and you will not have great difficulty selling...

    Think My Tank Is Too Small?

    When I had my last damsel in my tank, he took no crap from the Coral Banded shrimp and vice versa. Usually when his tankmates a clown fish or Royal Gramma get near the CBS and he flicks them away they swim off. The damsel comes back for more and sits there posturing, lol. He'll actuually...

    The blue body ones with yellow tail. My tank is a 30 long. Do a google search for "Damsel aggression" and enjoy the read. There are hobbyists with far larger tanks that have had similiar issue so good luck if you go that route and I hope all goes well, :D:D

    Think My Tank Is Too Small?

    I'd stay away from Damsels completely but hey it's your tank. I started out with 4....and am down to 1. I don't mind a little friction now and then but when a particular species is on their tankmates 24/7 relentlessly to the point they are afraid to come out for food drops and hide in a...

    Think My Tank Is Too Small?

    agree with trigger40. Also remember tank raised <insert random fish here> rarely get to the maximum size of their wild counterparts.

    After I complete their acclimation process. Do I just net em out or hand grab them and place them into the tank or just let gravity take over and let em slide out of the bag?

    Percula Clownfish (What do you guys feed them?)

    Thanks for the tip!! Brine Shrimp was the key. They downed that like they hadn't eaten in days :D Makes me feel better they got food in them. Hopefully they'll ween off this stuff so I can mix their nutrients more.

    Percula Clownfish (What do you guys feed them?)

    They are youngins and from what I gather, they settled in as they are not shy, hang at the front of the tank, specially when I am watching em. Very active swimmers and they hang together, even sleep together.. That said want to get food in these little guys...and my efforts have been futile...
