    anemones reef safe?

    I would say that if you are prepared to get one, then do so. Provided that that your tank is not already packed with coral. I have been lucky, mine hasn't moved since I upgraded tank and lighting....knock on wood. BTA's like a ledge to attach to, need high lighting, and medium flow. Be sure to...

    Some cool pics from my 77 gallon

    That's a white cheek powder brown, not blue. But nice tank shots. Keep up the good work. Like the mushrooms.

    Any chance of getting a picture of it? Maybe you can discribe it. Not all crabs that hitchike on live rock are bad. Describe the claws, pointed or not. Color? What size?

    The reason why xenia pulse.

    But then why do some xenia pulse at the store and then never pulse again when you get them home? I have some pink and blue xenia. The pink pulse like crazy, but the blue only once in awhile pulse. They pulsed a lot at the store, but don't now. They are thriving well, have multiplied, but no pulsing.

    Phosphate in tank

    Good thinking, I like to do it the natural way too. Just give it more time. Keep an eye on the levels and then use the pads if it gets out of control and water changes don't help.

    Phosphate in tank

    I wouldn't do water changes just yet. Wait until your ammonia and nitrate levels have peaked, and then starts to go down.Throw in phosphate resin, or pad in there to help if you want, but no water changes yet. Phosphate can be coming from your live rock, decaying organisms, waste, etc. Very...

    WOW! I want these... should I buy?

    Unless you have bought other things from this seller beware. I have been burned more times than I can count......some of these sellers like to use photoshop to enhance the pics. They seem too blue to me to be real. But there are some really nice colors out there.

    Pics of my 125 reef

    Hi all. I thought I would share some of my more recent pics. Hard to believe that the tank is going on 5 years old. Time sure flies. Enjoy.

    Xenia question?

    I bought a blue xenia frag, unattached, and placed it on a rock. Put a smaller rock, (rubble rock) just large enough to hold it down so the current won't carry it away and before long it will attach. My blue xenia attached in 2 days.

    Why would a "reef safe fish" become unsafe all of a sudden?

    I really didn't want to get "rid" of him. He was a very personable fish, but when you see dollar signs everytime he grazes on a prized rock, it is time to part ways. I really wish I had another tank to put him in, but this was not the case. Bla403--I wish you luck with yours. I had mine from a...

    Why would a "reef safe fish" become unsafe all of a sudden?

    Thanks for replying Susan. My foxface and I have parted ways. This morning at 5:45, before the lights came on, I caught him and he is now at the LFS. He had mowed down a nice rock of blue xenia and that was the last straw. Sad to see him gone, but now I know that anything else that is added...

    Why would a "reef safe fish" become unsafe all of a sudden?

    Hi all, I am very puzzled with this one. I have a 125g reef tank with all sorts of coral, clams etc., and a good selection of fish. My question pertains to my foxface, which I have had for over 3 yrs. He is about 5-6 inches and very friendly, and well fed. My question is that I purchased a...
