    Vacuuming LS Beds?

    They are not trolling. there are pico tanks in this thread that rinse out their entire sand every water change in tap water. I rinse my sand once a year in tap water as well. I have a larger 12 gallon tank so i don't do it all the time. Sand beds in nano tanks become time bombs if not properly maintained. I siphon my sand every WC and stir it frequently between. I only have about 1.5 inch bed.

    Fluval Evo - Stocking

    So i will be the downer. You could add one more small fish depending on your rock work but you will definitely need to upgrade the tank in a year or two once those clowns grow up. Honestly two adult clowns is pushing it in this tank as they are dirty fish your bioload will be high. Clowns also become extremely aggressive when they sex and mature especially when housed in tight quarters. I have the same tank and only have one clown in it. She killed the male and anything other fish in the tank. They really aren't the nano fish everyone likes to think they are.

    Clownfish fighting, normal or too much?

    I have a Fluval evo 13 and my female clown turned on my male and killed him when she hit about 2.5 inches. It happened insanely quickly as well. I was out of town for one week, and She started to relentlessly chase/attack him to the point where he was jumping out of the water smacking against my lid to escape. My girlfriend tried to save him by putting in a small make shift tank but it was to late, he was pretty screwed up, torn fins and bruised body, and despite being isolated he died a week later. While i think this is normal behavior for clowns dominance, i think the small tank size amplifies the agrression.

    what do you do when your anemone gets too big?

    Depends on the tank. don't spot feed them to keep them smaller, longer, but in a healthy system, they can grow fast. mine hasn't split in the year but it went from like 3-4 inches diameter to over 10-11 inches now when fully out.

    CaribSea Rubble Zone question

    I have used these for frags. I believe it has been cleaned of all organic material so if you have adequate bio filtration it shouldn't be a problem.

    Help stocking Fluval Evo 13.5

    two clowns will eventually be pushing the nutrient levels in that tank. I have two clowns in mine who are about a year old and they are mean and dirty. they would kill another fish in the tank not enough room. Option 1 may work out better... but for three fish I would think they would need to be smaller type gobies and maybe one of the above.
  10. hello I am selling my black on black mini tide For $175.00. Bought at the beginning of this year it has 3.1 arrays 4 channel with moonlight bluefish and gooseneck mounting.

A neptune system Salinity Probe barely used $50.00 I live in So Cal 10 minutes from LAX. not currently looking to ship so for now pick up only.
  11. In the second picture, it looks like you have tissue loss on your monti setosa frag. that frag appears to have some stn or rtn. I would check all your params and make sure it isn't something else. i have sps in the same tank and very small shifts in params in this tank seem to do damage quick.

    my duo fell into my tank Help!

    update! Lucky for me I live in Los Angeles! A friend of mine who I surf with almost every morning is a camera tech at a major movie camera house. His job is to fix high tech movie cameras all day. This am, I told him what happened and he said he could dry it out for me, As he regularly fixes cameras that get water damage. I gave him my light in the bag of rice this am and have just received a text that it works like a champ and I can pick it up whenever. Thanks every one who helped. And these lights are incredible and now proven durable, but don't drop them in your tank.

    Tips an advice for anemones.

    I think a BTA would be your best bet for a clown to host. There is a clown at a lfs that hosts a condy anemone, which seems smaller than bta, but not sure if that is a common occurrence. Not sure about your lights and if anemone could thrive under them. All anemones will wander, which is something to consider, however my bta once it found a suitable spot has not moved in about a year, even through a tank transfer.
