    So I’m looking at buying some hardy SPS corals. These will be the first SPS I’ve ever had, I do have a few LPS that are doing well. Will weekly 10-15% water changes with a salt mix that’s meant to support corals be adequate for SPS? I am running a skimmer and change filter media at least twice a...

    I recently got a new job in GR, and I'm tired of the commute already. My wife is a teacher, we have a daughter and are in the middle of adopting another one or two. After this school year is up, we are looking at moving to the GR area. One of the many, many questions we will need to resolve is...

    I know buying local used tanks is the least expensive way to go, but in the future I want to buy a 180 which will be a long term tank. I am wondering how / where to get the best bang for my buck on a new tank. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk

    So every time I purchase snails, it seems that a good 60% of them die within the first day. It does not matter how long or what method I use to acclimate them. I run activated carbon to remove toxins, there is no stray current in my tank, medication free currently, nitrates are undetectable with...

    Hello fellow Ann Arbor area reefers! Im a relatively new member of the reefing community and with just over a year of personal reefkeeping experience, I'm still learning all the best places to get information and meet likeminded people that want to share their knowledge and experience about...
  12. Fish Disease Treatment
    Lots of questions for treating protozoa in a quarantine tank! Please read and help. I have a 55gal quarantine with a mappa puffer, queen angelfish, and harlequin tuskfish at the moment, and unfortunately am struggling with some sort of protozoa. The symptoms are very different between the...

    I used to breed and sell a lot of Picasso and platinum clownfish on this site. I got out a while ago but the itch is still there to start another tank. I'm wondering if anybody remembers buying their Picasso clowns from me? I'd love to see a picture!!

  18. Anemones & Clownfish
    Hi, Just read in another post that clowns can become randomly aggressive, so I guess my question now is: can this reverse? Basic gist: Moved in November; one clown of a set (not a pair) of siblings died in a rock slide during the move, they were 3-4 years old. I can't remember exactly when...
  19. Seahorses & Pipefish
    Is anyone raising red volcano shrimp for their seahorses? I started with about 20 a year ago and have around 50 now. As they are slow growing I think it will be a while before I can use them for “treats”. I do not do much in the way of maintenance other than clean the front of my tank so I...
