  1. Question why do my fish spit out their food

    just as the title says. why do they do this? the clown does it the most. and the damsels also do it sometimes. it really annoys me because it will be the first feeding they have had and they will do it. when i know they are hungry. It seems to happen most with the Instant Ocean omni. pellets
  2. 90 Gallon Tank Purple Tang a good thing???

    I think the purple tang is beautiful, and i want one. I have a 90 gallon aquarium 4 feet long. 3 blue devil damsels, and one clownfish. i plan on getting a few more fish before the tang, so he can be the close to the last if not the last addition to the tank. any thoughts ???

  4. Seriously I dont know what to do

    Ok so i have a remora pro with mag 3, and the biggest eheim wet/dry canister ($$$$). Anyway i'm having trouble keeping my water clear. My rocks are looking dirty with a bunch of brown dust sitting on them, and around them. I think what part of the problem is, is that im not using RO water (yet)...
  5. Faded Clown coloration

    So i bought a clown about 3 weeks ago. he is happy, swimming EVERYWHERE all the time. He eats as best he can. I think it is hard for him to catch the flakes with the high water movement so i turn the power heads off for him. i started doing this recently. His body has become a little faded in...

  7. 90 Gallon Tank damsels are kinda mean

    Well i bought three blue damsels and put them in my tank once it was cycled. there is 2 that are equally sized, but one that is a little bigger. The biggest one chases the other two. He actually ate half of the tail fin's of one of the fish, and caused it to get a big cut on the side of its...
  8. Yellowish Pocket under top of sand?

    Ok so when i look at the front of my tank i can see part of the sand bed against the glass. And to top is white with a little dirt here and there from the rocks (sand is horribly hard for me to clean and i never feel like im actually doing anything), however on the bottom in a corner of the...
  9. Dark spot on live rock?

    Ok so i have fully cured live rock in my brand new 90gal tank. it has been set up for a little over a week. I cleaned the rocks very well removing any loose stuff prior to placing it in the tank. The tank doesnt have a smell at all and 98% of the rocks look great. Nice and brown and green and...
  10. Why use RO water?

    I dont understand why some people say to use RO water. What makes it so much better. Why is tap water not ok? (for a FOWLR). Is tap water bad even if you take out the chlorine, chloramine, and the heavy metals??? I just dont see the big deal. as long as the tank's ph and everything is ok. lemme...

  12. Help Super Cloudy Water?!?!?!?!

    I just bought Ocean Direct Caribbean Sea Live Sand, and it comes with a packet of "clarifier' for each bag. I already had water in the take. I was trying to get the salt water mixed and to the correct temp before adding my live rock. Anyways, my water is SUPER cloudy, even after adding the...
  13. Question Can Seashells go in my tank????

    Ok so i'm setting up my new 90 gal Saltwater tank this week. the sand is coming tomorrow, and the live rock is coming thursday. I was thinking about adding some of my favorite seashells. I collected them all myself from various beaches, and they have just been sitting in a glass jar for a few years to...
  14. Question Do I need a light at all for a FOWLR?

    Hey everyone. so my light fixture completely died/blew up. It will most likely be a little over a month before i can afford to get a new light. Can the live rock still grow, and the fish still thrive without the lights? a little sunlight and over head lights will still shine on it still. ??? i...
