    Blenny ID?

    Didn’t know if this belonged in critter ID or fish discussion, so here I am. I had my first reef tank about 4 years ago (has been broken down since) and found this photo of a blenny I had, and wasn’t able to identify it. Any thoughts? It was sold as a rhino blenny, but was obviously not that. Is...

    Acclimating mollies and other fish to saltwater

    Does anyone have any tips to acclimate mollies and guppies to saltwater? I also have a question if I could acclimate other fish to saltwater. I was thinking bumblebee gobies and knight gobies. My tank is a 20gallon so nano fish only!

    Do you consider a tank above 30 gallons to be nano?

    Why are tanks above 30 gallons considered “nano”. I feel like that needs to be changed because calling 30, 35, or 40 gallon tanks nano Just seems very not right. They are not nano at all in my opinion, the cost of setting them up is especially not nano. What do you think?

    Hello all! So I used to have a reef tank and had a very “text book” cycle, ammonia rises, then nitrite, then nitrate, then a big diatom bloom and a die off. This time around I had the same chemistry, but no diatoms, it went straight to a dusting of green algae. It’s been about two months and a...
