    Tang Identification

    Had a tang sold to me as a Atlantic Blue...but upon closer inspection I’m thinking it might be a purple. What do you guys think? I’ll try to get better pictures later as I just did a water change.

    Need help

    With how my aquarium is laid out, should it be a problem to add frogspawn, GSP, and hammer coral frags? Frag sizes will be roughly a beer can diameter. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I have a 13" toadstool, mint chocolate chip zoas, RBTA, frag button of blue zoas.

    Aiptasi x left in mailbox for 2 days in Texas heat, is it still good to use?

    As title says. I ordered Aiptasia X off of Amazon last week. It got delayed. It finally got delivered on June 30. Problem is, Amazon never sent me a notification of delivery. And since I don't drive down the street to get my mail from the mailbox every day, I of course did not get it until I...

    Contests not for any Canadians

    What gives with all the contests available to the continental US, and none for your Canadian cousins? It's really not hard to send stuff across the border, there's no wall..lol just goes in a truck or plane and crosses the border in the same amount of time to send stuff from 1 state to another.

    How’s my cycle going? (Shrimp method)

    Been cycling for 2 weeks, went with the shrimp method. I put one in and left it for 3 days until it began to swell, then I siphoned it out as I didn’t want it to burst and get crap all over the tank (wasn’t aware of the mesh bag method). not seeing much in the way of nitrate but my ammonia...

    What is the difference between the screaming green birdnest coral ( Vivid aquariums ) and the regular ORA green birdnest coral?? Does anyone have the screaming green one? It costs a little more, just wanted to know a bit more about it before I purchase it. Thank you in advance.

    Upgrading tank question

    I unfortunately made the mistake of settling for a lesser than because it was cheaper, and now I am switching to what I wanted, but my question is, will me moving all my rock, ceramic, marine pure, and possibly some of the water cause a cycle in the new tank? I’m moving from a 24g Aquatop that’s...

    Debate/Question- What makes certain corals so expensive/rare? (such as certain zoa color morphs, ie.)

In the terms of zoanthids and palythoas, what makes a certain color morph so special? Or when it comes to acroporas and anacroporas; they look alike but you can find some really pricey...

    Friend for my Foxface

    A buddy gave me his one-spot foxface and now I'd like to get a friend for him. I understand that multiple foxfaces can pair up, but will it work if the other fish isn't exactly the one-spot variety? Such as a foxface lo or a magnificent foxface? I don't want to introduce any aggression to this...

    I got a really good deal on a deep blue 57g reef ready rimless tank, but the center overflow takes up way too much space in the display. I'd like to remove the overflow, patch the holes in the bottom, and drill new holes in the back to plumb a low profile overflow and return. Has anyone done...

    Is shale rock not reef safe? Did it crash my friends tank?

    I was helping a friend of mine get into the hobby after he told me he wanted to keep a mantis shrimp. I built him a plan for his build and explained how everything works and all the “rigorous” processes and procedures he’d have to follow to set it up properly and maintain it. It’s a 13.5 gallon...
