    well i think its about to die

    First I would get him out quickly. How old is the tank?

    IMO false are a little tricky to get to host. A carpet anomene would be my choice and am really not sure about anything fake. Might get lucky with a frogspawn or something of that nature.

    Blue Hippo wont come out of hiding?

    That is not abnormal. Give him some time and try soaking some mysis in garlic and see if that gets his attention. Mine is not shy of me now but acted the same when he was new. If someone else is close to the tank even now he heads for the rocks.

    Fish Stress and How You Can Correct the Problem!

    As for the anemone, it died due to AM and tank being new. The BTA is a gamble on the lighting. Get rid of the damsel. The tank should be seasoned before trying another anomene like 6 months or so.

    70 lbs of LR in a 29g

    Thats a good thing, even at that you are pushing the limits. Just have to keep an eye on levels and remove a few more if you can't keep them in check. Looks like you have the equipment to go with a little bigger tank. Just a suggestion.

    70 lbs of LR in a 29g

    I count at least 12 fish in there from the picture. I don't think the rock would cause a big problem but IMO there are way to many fish in there. The bio load itself would be my concern.

    Plumbing problem

    I think that the air getting sucked down is a bit of a problem but it is still not big enough to handle the flow. I think as long as theres no problem with it I will drill a 1.5 hole in the top back so that the bottom of the hole matches the height of the top of the standpipe so they both drain...

    Plumbing problem

    Just got a 120 acrylic and it has a 1 inch stand pipe for the overflow. I got a 20 gallon sump and bought a aquasurge 2500 pump. Plumbed the pump with twin feeds into the tank. Problem is the overflow will not handle what the pump is putting out. My idea is to drill the back and install a 1.5...

    help with raising salinity

    I have no idea about the formula but if you come across a math wizz I am sure you can get an answer. Your salinity is not that low so i would just continue to add saltwater as you top off water. It will take some time until you reach .025 but it will get there. If no I would try like.040 or even...
