    My room STINKS!! Is it normal?

    Ok, so... I had just set up and started cycling my two saltwater tanks. Then I left for vacation. I came home, went to my room, and about got knocked to the ground. IT STINKS.

    Help! Something growing on my live rock

    I noticed today some things popped up on my live rock and I don't know what it is. I got it from a store that kept it in a huge tank with no fish or anything so I didn't think anything would be in it. I tried to get a picture but my water is so cloudy and the glass is dirty lol so it didn't...

    55 Gallon Tank Is it just me or... African cichlid with swollen jaw/throat?

    I'm not sure if there's something wrong with this zebra or not. It didn't look like this until a few days ago until after I fed a bunch of food and I had to take pictures to sell them as they were scared of the camera. I didn't feed for a day and no bloating so I thought all was well, except...
