Theyre a really pretty green color and I'd love to take them BUT...the clown in that tank has taken up residence in them and she doesnt want to seperate them. So she wants $59 for the both of them.

    Taxonomy Schamaxonomy

    Ok so for starters I'm curious as to what genus the common "pest" anemone Aiptasia belong to. Also I'm curious as to the hardiness of "Curly Q" or Bartholomea annulata. I'm wondering that if they belong to the family Aiptasiidae perhaps they are closely related and similar to Aiptasia? Mainly...

    Memoirs Of A Chocolate Chip Starfish:

    Alrighty, by request, by interest, by hopes that if things go wrong this will create a more public and urgent forum for me to gain it is. On 12/12/07 I added a Chocolate Chip Star (Protoreaster Nodosus) to my 14g Biocube. There have been a lot of mixed feelings about this, some...

    So I threw a heater in my pico today not realizing that it was busted. I get home to find that my tank is 91 degrees. It's down to about 85 now after switching the heater, aiming for 80. Wondering if this will have killed off any bacteria? I noticed a little hitchhiker snail is still moving...

    Xenia Just Arrived.

    So I found some school for deaf children that has an aquaculture program...I thought I'd give them a try since their prices are awesome but...I dunno what I think thus far.

    Protoreaster Nodosus

    Would a 2.5" Chocolate Chip Star be ok in a 14g tank? Feeding would consist of Mysis or chopped silversides every other day.

    Sinularia Flexibis

    There is a nice sized spaghetti finger coral at my lfs but it has stitches going up the side of its base. Boone really has any answers why. The coral appears healthy and doing well. Is this a normal practice? Should I purchase this coral?

    What's Wrong With This Fish?

    So I used to have about 6 or 7 damsels and a tomato clown. They each ended up looking like this fish, one by one. It happens over night, and once they start to look like this they only last about a day. They look like theyve been run through a blender or something. Fins are mangled, skin is...

    The Humuhumunukunukuapua Adventure

    There's been a baby humu humu (about 2.5") at the LFS that I've been tempted by time and time again and I finally told myself I'd get him and do whatever I could to accommodate him until he got too big for my tank (55gal) if the LFS would sell him for under $20. Well, she agreed on $20. On my...
