    Blue/green chromis

    I am starting to sock one of my tanks. I first read that the chromis was the least aggressive of the damsels and followed the reccomend school of 6. In a very short time I was down to one. I scoured my tank looking for anything, corpse, leftovers, anything and found nothing. Last week I did the same restock, bought 5 to add to the sole surviving one. Today i am down to 3. I have searched everywhere, including the floor, (are these guys known to be jumpers?) It is a 55 gallon so I do not think tank size is the problem. Are they just eating each other? I can not find bones or anything that would suggest that. No other fish in the tank. They hide all day and only come out at feeding time. I have scoured the web and nothing contradicts thier behavior except the stay hidden. Anyone else had to deal with this? Should I try different fish instead? If so what kind?

  4. Welcome Ashton, Yes we like pictures! LoL As mentioned before there are tons of posts, and if you can not find what your looking for, just ask. I went the opposite route as you, starting off with a 20 long, got the fever, and just finished with a 50 gal. Once I get it stocked and running I have a 175 fresh that I will convert. Good luck and welcome.

    Sump tank

    I am looking for a sump tank, 20 gallons preferably that has that has the dividers set in place. I am no longer physically able to do a diy, as attempt number 2 failed. I do not have the strength to squeeze enough out the tube or use a calking gun. My first attempt I have to guess was not enough caulking because all 4 partitions failed. After cleaning all that up I sealed it again, waited 3 days and put another seal on top. Today after three days to cure the first 3 failed I did not wait for the fourth because I figured it was a gonner too. I have to use a press to get the caulk out and use a finger to apply it. Maybe the oil from my fingers? I spent all I could afford on all the new equipment, and for what they charge for the ones online it would be months of putting money back to afford one. That along with my new skimmer, I would run into trouble with the dimentions. Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk
  8. Try testing the water you are adding I sometime have a label fall off or the jugs got switched. Use tap water to see if you need to recalibrate it. Do you have any salt creep that may have or is falling into the tank? Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk

    Hi All

    Are you wanting to buy them or just read up on them? I do not know how anyone is searching for them but I go to the first page opening in tap talk and search from there and see lots of posts, even group club like ours devoted to just shrimp. Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk

    Bristleworms...good or bad?

    I got worms

    Thanks for the quick reply. I am going to guess from your reply they do not damage corals? If I did want to rid my tank of them, manually or? Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk

    I got worms

    I hope the quality of the photo is good enough. But is this a good worm or a bad worm? Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk

    Just how important is a level tank?

    How unlevel is it? Yes it might eventually stress the side and cause it to fail. If it is minute, I would not be to worried about it. If you are talking about 1/2 inches or more, that could be a problem over time. Can you send photos of the water level, tank and one of the stand as well? Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk
