    Sexy shrimp???

    Have a 5 gallon tank with some soft and lps corals,a hermit crab and a turbo snail. Thinking of picking up some sexy shrimp. They recommend having a few of them. How many should I get? And will they harm my corals, hermit or snail?

    Fish or invertebrates?

    Yes. A few other reefers suggested that as well

    Currently have a 5 gallon tank with 1 snail, 1 hermit crab, a few sps and lps. What could I put in my tank that's safe for my corals?

    generator idea

    Having a small tank, should i invest in a generator? is there any other options out there? I have a 10 gallon
  5. Sad to say my clownfish died about a week ago. Since im not feeding anything due to no current fish in my tank, will the clean up crew be ok or should i feed them? Will this cause another cycle in my tank?

    parameters ok to add coral?

    I read online that using two part to dose, i would also have to dose the same amount for alkalinity as well, is that true? Or can i just use the calcium

    Parameters testing ok?

    I use a empty container filled with rodi and add salt until the level is where i want it. I usually mix enough to last two weeks incase something comes up and i don't have time or if i need a immediate water change. then close the lid, and use it when i need it. Is this method ok?
