    For Sale  Fluval FX4 High Performance Canister Filter, up to 250 US Gal (1000 L)

    This filter is AMAZING! I have only had it 2 weeks but I scored a deal on a 400 gallon tank and this will not be enough for me. Timing was never my strong suit - haha. But you can have a MINT perfect Fluval FX4 for much less than retail! This was plugged in to a (non planted, no fish, empty...

    Bowmouth Gutairfish in Freshwater?

    I found this video, and was very shocked. I was wondering if there was any validity to it, or if the fish had a death sentence? I've never even heard of anyone attempting to keep these guys in freshwater

    45g predator tank: Do you think this is overstocking?

    Hi. Long time lurker, first time poster. I have a lot of experience in freshwater aquaria, and recently I've been very tempted to try salt. I found a nice 45g cube-styled aquarium on LiveAquaria, measuring 26.5" x 22" x 19". Can't post a link because this is my first post, but it has a...

    (saltwater? I dunno if i should post here.) Lionfish compatibility and other questions

    I'm setting up a Red Sea Reefer Deluxe XXL 750 (200-gallons) and I'm planning to put a clearfin lionfish as the main fish. I was originally thinking of Niger triggerfish since they were the least aggressive of the triggerfish but after browsing through some forums, they often said that...

    The resiliance and hardcore nature of a BTA

    So about 10 days ago I got my first BTA. I planned to get one later this year and start an anemone tank, but the opportunity came by sooner and I got it on a little bit of an impulse. So I purchased it, got home in the evening and added him into the tank. Watched him a little until it was...

    Another hitchhiker

    This is something no one has been able to ID yet. It is not a montipora coral. It seems to be doing well, its almost been 3 weeks now and it seems to be spreading to the other side (darker side) of the rock. My lighting is 2 x 12 watt LED bulbs. Mostly white light, with some blue LEDs spaced...

    ID on something new growing

    Hello guys. I haven't collected anything for about two weeks now, but I suspect this has been growing for about a month now. I only noticed it yesterday though. Its hard. So I'm guessing whatever it is involves calcium.

    Maxima clam tank size?

    What's the tank dimensions needed to house a maxima clam? When I search it says 100 gallons and up, it doesn't sound right to me but I'm no expert so I'm asking here, if it does need 100 gallons then why? Cause I thought clams hardly move or just don't. Thanks for any replies.

    Suitable saltwater sharks?

    I have been very interested in a shark tank or pool for my home for a long time but I am unsure which shark is most suitable, I am aware there are smaller bottom dwelling sharks but I'm more interested in sharks like the blacktip reef shark for example. Expenses and space isn't a problem and I'm...

    Cleaner shrimp hand snack

    Does anyone else enjoy having their hands cleaned by their cleaner shrimp? When they see me approach the tank they move to hang around the filter area where my hand usually goes in. Waiting to clean my hands. Do you think they would get much nutrition from this? I was wondering if rubbing sand...

    Hair algae

    I have no idea why I got such a huge spike of hair algae but it’s crazy! My tank has been up for over a year I’d say now. I had hair algae and then it went away. Now it’s back! Along with that pink stuff that went away too. What is going on? How do I kill that hair algae? I purchased a slug...

    cool fish for 50 gallon tank

    Anyone have ideas for friendly community fish to put in a 50 gallon tank (preferably coral reef)? Some of you are going to hate me for this but I don't like clownfish that much because they are soo common and i'm going for a larger variety of fish. Thank you!

    Does this look good??

    I think one of my favorite things in the entire ocean is a kelp forest, and I finally found some incredibly realistic rubber kelp at my LFS. I also kind of want coral, so i was thinking a mixture? have kelp surrounding a small reef? The stocking is not going to match that of kelp of course...

    realistic wave maker?

    I'm a noob and I've never tried saltwater but honestly I am more intrigued by it than anything else, and I just wondered if there was any kind of wave maker that made more natural waves, (Moving slower with pauses in between) kind of what you see underwater with the fish slowly drifting back and...
