    Unsure of what variations exist of copepods...but if it's not that, then what could it be?

    I just started seeing these in my fish tank, at first they were so small I thought it was micro air bubbles...but now I’m thinking copepods; and time for a mandarin goby?

    Can you guys help me identifying what these are? They randomly showed up in my tank - full transparency I don’t dip corals or have means to quarantine, so I’m assuming they’re hitchhikers? Are they an issue, or should I just let it be? Thanks in advance. Tank: Fluval Evo 13.5, running for 10...

    Torch coral HELP

    I just purchased a torch coral, about 5 days ago, and today I noticed there were 2-3 long tentacle looking things sticking out from each head. Is this the coral dying? Is it something that came attached to it (no I didn’t dip the coral before adding it)? I appreciate any and all help. Thanks.

    Update on Fluval Evo 13.5

    Update on water test: Nitrate/Phosphate: 0 (I know they can't be 100% zero but the API test kit doesn't narrow it down) Calcium: 520 ppm KH: 143.2

    Fluval Evo Skimmer

    Super late response, turns out the slimmer needed to break in - I get small bubbles if the water level drops, but overall, it’s been working decent. It doesn’t get the greatest skim, but for $60 I wasn’t expecting amazing results.

    Update on Fluval Evo 13.5

    I wanted to post a quick update on my Fluval Evo 13.5 build, along with some questions. Stocking: Not sure what happened, but i lost a lot of my love stock (Goby and Fire Shrimp) - whatever it was didn’t affect my clownfish or cleanup crew. My crabs attacked all of my turbo snails and I lost...

    Purple Stuff...

    Does anyone know what this is? I can’t seem to get rid of it - I’m doing weekly water changes, and I run PhosGuard and Purigen. Light cycle is 8 hrs per day on a timer.

    Clownfish has gone crazy

    I have a Evo 13.5 with a single clown fish and blood red shrimp. Yesterday I added a clean up crew and since then my clownfish has lost his mind. Swimming around fast in circles, running into the glass, and just seems agitated. Is this normal? Anything I can do??

    I have a Fluval Evo 13.5, I bought a skimmer (Fluval sea mini) and noticed it is producing large quantities of micro bubbles...I’m new to saltwater so I am unsure if this is normal...

    Fluval Evo 13.5 build

    I will be using live rock, sand with beneficial bacteria and possible a “turbo” start - but will still wait 4 weeks. I’ve always thought of keeping an aquarium as a marathon, not a sprint - I am treading very carefully with saltwater because there are so much more parameters to consider and...

    Fluval Evo 13.5 build

    After taking a break from freshwater I’m diving into the saltwater scene! Starting with a small but respectable Fluval Evo 13.5 - more to come on filtration upgrades. But in the meantime I had a custom stand built and have my sand and rock ready. Picking up some saltwater from my LFS this...

    Saltwater Firstimer

    I am setting up a Fluval Evo 13.5, pretty standard 1st-time saltwater setup - nothing fancy or special. I have plans for upgrading the filtration and the lighting in the near future, taking that into consideration is it possible (I'm sure it is) or recommended to cycle the tank w/out filtration...

    10 Gallon Tank Starting My First Saltwater

    I decided to make the jump over the the darkside...SALTWATER! Quick backstory I’ve been in the hobby for 2 years now and I started with a 38 gallon freshwater, kept angel fish, mollies and guoramis. Started a 75 gallon and kept a flowerhorn for the last year and a half, he recently died due to...

    Flowerhorn Emergency

    can someone tell me what is going on with my flowerhorn!? I’ve had him around a year and he’s always been in a bare 75 gallon tank, proper filtration and weekly water changes. He has a large blue/purple bruise looking section on his kok and today I found the area next to his eye that looks...
