    So I set up a new tank, I had been letting the tank cycle for almost a month now occasionally adding API QuickStart.

    Just a "quick" question. Does anyone know a way to track/record how long my heaters run? I'm trying to evaluate my electric bill and decide if its better to have my tanks in the basement with no risk of over heating but pay more for electric or move them upstairs but risk a warm tank. I run...

    Waste of time, I've seen a better selection at Petco. Today was their grand opening, opened at 11:00am. I arrived there at 11:05 and seen a few dead fish. They have no coral what so ever. I won't be going back.

    "They were questioning me about the shipment, this is what I had to say........." There was not a single heat pack in the styro, the water was ice freezing cold. Double checked it already. No brown bag or anything (this was supposed to have the heat pack in it). I already acclimated the crab...

    Velvet *****. It sucked about $400 out of my wallet worth of dead fish. Im left with a crossi damsel and an anthia, both doing fine now in a 5 gal hex, which i treated for 6 days with safeguard, which is copper free.

    Hi all, While researching livestock I have found conflicting views about how long a store should have the livestock before you buy it. Some books say the faster you get it, the better others say the longer you wait the better.....which one is right? My gut tells me that if a store...
