    Need help with wood choices for stand...

    For wood type it is all personal preference. I built a stand for a 90 gallon out of oak and then stained it a Reddish color. Look like a million bucks. However pine can be beautiful, and is not as much $$$'s.

    How do you grow Coralline Algae???

    I am very confused. I put 10lbs of Live Rock that was covered with coralline algae about 4 months ago. 1 month ago I started adding Kent Marine Liquid Calcium, Strontium & Molybdenum and Iodine. I still have not see the algae spread to any other part of the tank. I have an aqua clear 202 as...

    blue starfish

    I got one and within a week it had died on me. Not a pretty sight. If you are going to get one at a LFS don't let the person helping you touch it with thier hands. The oils in your hands are really bad for the starfish.

    Help Stocking a 29gal.

    Hello All, My 10gallon experiment has been fun, but the tank is starting to leak. So I thought that I would take the opportunity to upgrade to a 29 gallon tank. Currently my only fish in the 10 is an orange tailed damsel, however I would like to get rid of him and get something else. That...

    has anyone ever had a baracuda

    You have got to be kidding! I have been snorkleing in Florida with those buggers and they get LONG! I would say at least 3-4 feet. Since your 90 is probably only 4 feet long and 18 inches wide, that guy will have a tough time turning. You would need a HUGE tank to keep one. IMO

    Need suggestion for fish addition

    Have you thought about an orange-tail blue damsel. Not too expensive, aggressive feeders, heck you could just say agreessive and they don't get huge.

    I killed the Mantis!!!

    Congradulations! They are fast buggers. This one took about an hour to finally die in the Freshwater. I feel like putting a pin through him and putting him on the wall above the tank to serve as a warning... LOL

    I killed the Mantis!!!

    YES!!! Over the last few months, I have noticed a steady decline in my livestock. They would just dissapear and my shrimps would be shredded. Today I noticed a little brown thing hiding in the shadows of my LR. When I shined a flashlight on it, it scurried away. I immediately started taking...

    Different types of LR

    OK, what is the difference between, Fiji, Marshall Island, Happia, Gulf and Tonga branch LR. Obviously they all come from different places, but is thier a difference in density or shape? I am sure that being from different places their is a lot of bio-diversity, but is that it? Any help would...

    what do you guys get out of this hobbie??

    Control Baby, It's all about control! ;) The fish are also very pretty!

    Help...I need your opinion right away!

    I would get it and simply get a smaller pump. You will probably want to upgrade to a bigger tank in the future, so I don't think it would be a bad idea to get a bigger skimmer.

    How to feed Cleaner Shrimps?

    I'm with Ocean Blue, My cleaner is the most aggressive eater in the tank. He just whips his little tenticles or whatever you call them around and collects all the food around him.

    new 90 gallon tank

    Let me put it this way, I will have a sump for my 90. Currently I am unemployed and the progress I was making on my 90 has slowed to a halt for the time being. However I am planning and have ordered two different sumps. My stand is 40 inches tall so I made a shelf in the tank. On the upper...

    new 90 gallon tank

    I have a 90 and have built my own stand. I had a ton of fun doing it. I also did it with 4x4's and oak faced plywood. The stand was 40 inches tall. The only problem with 4x4's is that they will take up a ton of room under your tank. Especially on the sides. If you figure take 1 1/2 inches...

    shrimp molted first hour in tank!

    Don't worry about your shrimp molting. My cleaner did the same when I first put him/her in the tank. They do it about every three wks. Just add a little iodine to the water. It will help them keep their new "skin" healthy.
