  1. Help Fish Lice?

    I finally figured out what they are. Sphaeromatid Isopods, algae eating kind, since my blenny died my tank has exploded with them and all other kinds of Copepods
  2. Help Fish Lice?

    I have these creatures that are the marine version of a rolley polley, except they have a tail. Same size same build, and even same number of legs. they live almost exclusively in my filter sock eating detritus. I have also seen them eating algae in my tank. In my tank the hermit crabs will eat...
  3. Supavisor Pete's start into Saltwater

    Yuppp, they are in fact aiptasia, I finally got the LFS guy alone when his boss wasn't around, and made him tell me as I drown him underwater...lol jk, but seriously had to ask some tough questions to get it out him. However the lightbulb anemone is actually not aiptasia and has grown quite a bit
  4. Supavisor Pete's start into Saltwater

    I'm not sure either way, to be honest. The one in the clam shell is a light bulb and is supposedly non aggressive, So until I see other wise I'll keep him. however as far as the others, I'm gonna say you're probably right. Supposedly they are called flower anemones, and are semi aggressive. The...
  5. Question Can I add fish now?

  9. Help! About to give up on saltwater tank

    Red legged hermits, are better cleaners than most others, but supposedly they can get aggressive(I've been told, and they do get big) blue legged, and brown legged hermits will clean up the algae around your tank (they sift the sand also). get a variety of snails, turbo are the most efficient...

  13. Help! About to give up on saltwater tank

    I don't think for a 75 gallon tank that you have enough of a clean up crew. The recommendations that I've always heard is 1 snail and hermit(depending on type) per gallon. I personally run a very high nutrient system, lots of food and all, just to keep the bacteria cranking on the ammonia...
  14. Help with Gracilaria

    Do you have any recommendations for LS, Ie miracle or mineral mud? or just some caribsea LS? anything special? And I do have a 14 watt 8000 full spectrum light over the sump, which is 10 gallons.( I think that's sufficient?)lol

I also have a very small amount of caulerpa on my live rock.I was thinking(give your opinion now!) of putting in chaeto and gracilaria in the fuge, I understand that Gracilaria needs...
