    Will This Addition Be Too Much?

    Oh! Yeah, I use a phosphate remover now. The brand I was using (Phos-X by Hagen) just got nixed from the market, so I'm not sure what brand to start using now. I really liked the way you just throw in the bag, then take it out as it becomes used up. Is there another brand similar in usage? Thanks!

    Feeding Puffer Fw Snails?

    Well the pond is my own, and so far as I know there has never been anything put in it other than decholorinated water, rainwater and the occasional pecan tree leaf. Thanks!

    Black Saddled Toby

    Mine took out my brittle star, my (1) cleaner shrimp and one peppermint shrimp. Has done nothing to my $1 hermits, though. She must have a high-standard of dining!

    Yellow Eggs?

    I just noticed these small, very yellow things up on the side of the glass, in the corner. Some are on the glass, some are floating. The ones on the glass do not look like they were intentionally placed there, but just got there from the water flow. They have a rather squared-off shape, rather...

    Replacing A Sand Bed

    I would just add regular sand - not live. That may cause a mini-cycle. I'd go with some crushed aragonite or coral. HTH!

    What's a GFO?

    Will This Addition Be Too Much?

    Would you remove the lm blenny before that, or just rearrange with him in the tank? Thanks!

    Will This Addition Be Too Much?

    Ooohhh... that's beautiful!!! I'll have to keep my eyes open for that one, but I'll prob end up with the pearly/yellowhead. The lfs around here only carry "typical" fish mostly -- they rarely get anything too exotic. But, wow.... :hyper: When I add the jawfish (whichever one it may be) should...

    Lighting/coral Question

    Is a PC unit a light strip with a single flor. bulb? The hood right now holds 2 screw-in light bulbs - like the ones you put in a lamp, just a little smaller base. I have flor. ones instead of incan. bulbs in it. The tank is an All-Glass rectangle - about 20" long x 11" deep x 12" tall.

    Lighting/coral Question

    My rectangle 10g tank has a hood that holds 2 of those screw-in florescent bulbs. Without having to change this, are there any easier/less expensive corals that would work? I'm not wanting a full-blown reef, but a couple of decent looking corals would add to it, I think. Thanks for the help!

    Will This Addition Be Too Much?

    I think I may try a yellowheaded jawfish instead. I had one a while back but lost it. I really enjoyed watching it -- very cool fish. Thanks for the help!!

    Will This Addition Be Too Much?

    Right now my Coral Beaty dominates. Not in a bad way, she just makes sure the lm blenny isn't in her area of the rock work from time-to-time. I was thinking he'd be less inclined to dominate too badly since he would be put in last, much later than the others. I really love the look of the...

    Will This Addition Be Too Much?

    Really? I've been told that size tank is fine for a six-line. Is it bc of activity level or aggression level that you say that? Yeah, I kind of thought another clown would be pushing it... guess I'll nix that. Thanks!

    Rock From Back To Frount.....

    You can do it however you want, but I find it easier to leave a little space between the glass and rock for cleaning, and for some fish that like to perch on the sand, too.
