  1. Reef Discussion
    I know I posted this before but I just love this thing. I have been at this for a long time but I get all excited when I see the animals enjoying themselves, especially if it is with something that I created. Just about all of my fish eat from this live baby brine feeder even though they have...
  2. Hitchhikers and "ID Please"
    Can Coral RX go bad and lose its "sting" for monti eating nudibranchs over time?
  3. Photography
    Hey everyone I thought I'd share whats in my backyard right now:):):). I'm living my dream right now... We're on our honeymoon on the island on Manihi in the French Polynesia. Here are a few teaser photos of right off our bungalow. I still haven't uploaded the ones from the reef ledge from...

I've tryed frozen blood worms, frozen brine and mysis shrimp. what should I try or do u guys think he will come along? I know that are known to be picky eaters...
  7. Lighting, Filtration and Other Equipment
    someone told me to use a red light to see what was eating my corals at night. Rather than getting a flash light, I bought a red led strip used in cars, and hooked it up to a 9volt plug. I can leave the light on and look in the tank as I walk by. I works, I found the acropora crab I saw a couple...
  8. Fish Disease Treatment
    One of my yellow tangs developed about twenty purple spots on both sides of the body, mostly in the tail and lateral line area, all in a day. Does anyone know what this is? No new fish added in 6 months. He is eating fine. They look almost like bruises under his skin. The only thing new to...

    anything else besides harliquin shrimp to get rid of these evil little stars?
  10. Other Invertebrates
    One of my favorite inhabitants of the tank is our cocoworm. Tonight I added perhaps a new favorite; a purple sea urchin which is gentle to the touch with no spikes or sting, and really cool to watch move across our tank. Until I saw him on top of the coco worm within the first hour. When I...

  12. New to the Hobby
    Does anyone have any experience with Peppermint Shrimp eating or killing corals? Today I saw my Peppermint Shrimp literally pry food out of my Cup Coral's "mouth" and take it back to his "cavern". Later in the day, I saw him trying again. Is it just scavenging (as is natural) or will it...
  13. Selling Forums
    due to family deaths/sicknesses and moving to new house i'm embarrassed to say my tank has been getting neglected. some of my corals are needing help and the tank itself needs more maintenance than i've been able to give it. so i think it best to just give it away to someone who can dedicate the...
