  1. Feeding the fish ?

    Thank you for the help: I am feeding Brine, Mysis and sometimes silverslides. So seems like I just keep doing what I'm doing. I did get 3 chromis and my blue damsel is pushing them into the corner. I knew at some point I would have to get rid of him, guess now is the time. I'm hoping the LFS will take him.

  4. New I am indeed

    Welcome: We also have been setting up a reef tank for 2 months and have the exact story, even down to the moving of the rock. Husband asked if I would only move it around when he was at work This is a great forum to be on . The best advice is from people with knowledge that are not trying to sell you something. Ask lots of questions so we can learn too........

  6. Flame hawkfish

    I was at a trustworthy fish store and saw a flame hawkfish . He is so cute. They told me and I read that they can be semi aggressive. But they say this one is not ,but is in a very large tank. Do some flame hawk fish act different than others ? . I have 2 damsels, 2 clowns , fire shrimp and sleeper head goby cleaner and crab

    Thanks for the help. I really like my fireshrimp, he is our 1st invertebrate and we were really proud when he molted. So I'll thinks about it. They are so cute We are going back to the fish store Fri I can check more closely what is in the tank with him. It is a 60 gallon tank.

  15. Brand new to salt water

    Hello and thank you for letting us join. We are Doug and Karen. This is our very first saltwater tank. It has been his dream since we have been married ( 31 years ). We have a 60 gallon true vu tank, that we want to be a reef tank. It has been up for almost 2 months. I think we have been really really lucky plugging along with the info we have read and goolged. I met CoralCrazy who has saved my anemone, that I should not even have. and now have this forum to help us finsh what we have started. We are very excited and are enjoying just the small beginning we have started. Thank you for the advice in advance. kknight

  20. Water change

    Thank you all the the great advice. Our 1st water change was due to an emergency. I was changing the light in the front bathroom so turned off the elec. was working on the light and needed a tool so was walking by the fish tank into a pool of ........ummmmmmmmmmmm water , it was on the same breaker. the sub overflowed onto my hardwood floor. I got all the towel I have and went to get a mop that oh by the way I do not own. I called my husband that works at Safeway to get home and bring a mop. So we decided now would be a good time to do a water change. It was such a comity act we just had to laugh. Also the light I have did not have the correct mounting bracket , so have no light in the bath. A lesson learned. If I need to turn off elec. to fish tank get a extension cord to different outlet.....
