    Coral Beauty in a reef - is it worth it?

    Hey all, So for a while now I’ve “Will I, won’t I”’d adding a Coral Beauty Angel to my 55 gallon mixed reef, and after finalizing some things in the aquarium am thinking about taking the plunge at last. Now, my question isn’t necessarily about if these fish are coral safe, since I know they are...

    Sailfin Tang vs Foxface

    Hey guys so I have a reef tank that is just set up in the future I would like to add either a sailfin tang or a foxface. I wasn’t sure if one was better than the other in a reef tank setting and at cleaning any algae that may grow. (125 gallon)

    Silicone Seal Concerns

    Hello everyone, I have recently set up a 75 gallon aquarium and one of the silicone seals appears to have algae growing underneath it in a few spots. The tank has only been set up for three months and was never previously set up so it is almost brand new. I do not want to name the brand in...

    Coral Stocking Plan

    How do you all go about deciding where to place your corals? I’m not talking about high or low light/flow, but more so where within the area of the tank they would succeed? I’ve narrowed down a list of possible corals I’d like to add, but haven’t been able to pull the trigger on any because I...

    Tank Crashed What To Do Next!

    It pains me to write this but I lost 25% of my corals I was growing over the last 3 years in less then 2 months. The only person to blame is myself and that's the only way one can improve. Watching your coral die slowly is a painful site. What lead up to this and how can I prevent this in the...

    New Anemone color ID

    I just picked up this bubble tip anemone for a few bucks. Does anybody have an idea of what this coloration is called? I assume it's fairly common. I just like to know what colorations I have for all anemones and corals.

    It’s kinda disturbing seeing how many noobs kill aquatic life with their nano tanks….

    Why do noobs feel the need to buy nano tanks? Despite the massive amounts of research showing they should be utilized only by experienced reefers. Every single day I see on here some noob having trouble with their 5 or 10 gallon tank and their massive parameter swings…fish, coral, inverts...

    Looking for advice

    Hello everyone, looking to start my first tank. After some research and a bit of discussion on here I’m leaning towards a 40 gallon breeder.

    Question about tank placement

    Hello everyone, looking at buying my first saltwater tank. My first option is in the basement (near my desk where I spend a lot of time) with no natural light so I know that’s fine but my mom has taken interest in having a tank and is willing to split it. The only compromise is that it has to be...
