  1. Hitchhikers and "ID Please"
    I thought this was little bits of my dragon's breath algae spreading throughout the tank at first but its getting pretty widespread. They don't seem to move, and are concentrated on one large rock on one end of the tank. I actually haven't even tried to touch or remove one yet because I'm just...
  2. Anemones & Clownfish
    I just recent purchased my first RBTA on Saturday and placed him in my tank and he looks great :) however he has started moving around on me which is fine I will let him go where ever he pleases. My question is should I turn my powerhead down or move it? I don't think I should because once I...
  3. Site Feedback and Questions
    Just a question about site rules: If someone posts a price in the sale section, you agree with them on the sale, do rules allow them to ask more? (Ya, it's sour grapes, but for my future reference too) Got into a bidding war after I was told I had a deal for the asking price....was very...

  5. New to the Hobby
    Well the title was hard to come up with, sorry. I just found out that I may have to come to flint area for work but it would be Monday not Sunday. If I purchased some corals at the swap would they be ok for overnight? Actually it would be Sunday evening until Monday early afternoon before I...
  6. Anemones & Clownfish
    So my clown was found dead today by the babysitter in the back of the tank laying on the sandbed.:butcher: I had her put the clown in a bowl with tank water. When I came home on my lunch break I had found that my yellowtail damsel was missing. I searched and searched. I found nothing except what...

  9. Reef Discussion
    Got home last night, talked to the wife, grabbed the baby and went down to check out the tank, feed the fish, etc. As soon as I get to the end of the steps I notice something isn't right, halides are still kicking at 9pm, they are supposed to shut down at 7. Strange, but not a huge deal I think...

  11. Anemones & Clownfish
    So, I have a 92 gal tank, which has cycled (tests verified at Preuss). I have had 2 damsels in the tank for a few weeks who I was 'babysitting' for the summer, which were returned to the owner a couple weeks ago. On Thursday I got a bunch of RBTA's from a fellow reefer here in Battle Creek, and...

    Why would a blue hippo die yesterday, and a coral die and look like cyno bacteria was on it. Then today a kenya tree is starting to look like its going to go also by what the branches have like this brown slime on them. And also the clam died today? I just moved this 150 gallon tank but what is...

  16. Fish Disease Treatment
    Hi guys, I have ich in my tank and I just need to get my clown, yellow tang, and hippo tang out of there for at least a month. I could setup a QT but all I have is a 15 gallon tank which will be too small for these fish and I am going to end up stressing them out more. Is there anybody out...

    Looking for someone local with a well established SPS system to keep a few of my pieces for 2-4 months while I get a new system set up. I've grown these for awhile and hate to sell them. There is a nice sized Superman and Pokerstar monti piece. You could place plugs against it and have some...

    A couple of guys at work are trying to start a union . It is a local municipality of dpw workers. They need 50% + 1 for the union to come in. I see a great opportunity as we now will have great representation . I also see the negative as will cost a monthly due. What are your thoughts...
  20. Members Tanks
    Hey everyone! backstory: A few years ago, a friend and member of this community showed me his mixed reef tank and I knew that I had to do one! I've dabbled in fresh water, but never salt. That same friend asked me to "babysit" a set up for him for a while, maybe buy it later on. Its a...
