  1. Hi everyone, my old tank was a 20 gallon aqeuon with a tomato clownfish and a yellow watchman goby. This will be a slow thread as I'm a little tight with money at the moment, but I hope the end result will be fantastic. Anyways I picked up the top fin 55 gallon tank kit. I am aqua scaling it to have 2 clumps of rocks on both sides that slope into the middle like a trench. I was watching serpa design and he painted the back of his tank with Rust-Oleum acrylic black latex paint and I think I will do this to really get the trench vibe going. The goal of this tank is to not have many corals but have huge colonies that will fill the tank. Tank: TopFin 55 Gallon Filter: One TopFin 75 Gallon Power Filter and an Aqueon 20 Gallon Whisper Heater: TopFin 200 watt Heater Skimmer: Reef Octopus HOB 150 gallon Light: Fluval Reef Tank Light 48 inch Wavemakers: Koralia 1150 gph Algae Scrubber: undecided Livestock plans in order of introduction: Fish: 1x Yellow Watchman Goby (from current tank) 1x Lawnmower Blenny 1x Tomato Clownfish (from current tank) 1x Radial Filefsih 3-5 Harem of chalk Bass 1x Green Clown Goby 1x Atlantic Longnose Butterflyfish Inverts: Different species of Squat Lobster (experimental) 1x Crinoid 1x Ball Sponge 1x Spider Sponge 1x Christmas Tree Rock 1x Coco Worm Various Tunicates 2x Staghorn Hermits 2x Porcelaine Crab 1-2x Brittle Starfish Army of Hermit Crabs 1x Caribbean Thorny Oyster Army of Snails Corals: All Current Corals Various Colors of Sun Coral 1x Fathead Dendrophyllia 1x Carnation Coral 1x Chili Coral 1x Ref Finger Gorgonian 1x Yellow Finger Gorgonian 1x Blueberry Gorgonian Various Goniopora Various Gorgonians

    Fluval nano 13.5 good stocking idea?

    I'm hoping I could add a yasha goby, randall pistol shrimp, tailspot blenny, and a red firefish to my 13.5 gallon tank. Are there too many fish/any compatibly issues? All comments and or suggestions are greatly welcomed and appreciated

    My First Nano-Reef Tank

    Hey! So this will be my very first reef tank! I absolutely love the idea of a mini ecosystem in my house, so here goes: 1. What natural (Maybe organic) fish/invert food do you reccommend? 2. What tank do you reccommend for a 35-45 gallon set-up? 3. What fish/invert species do you reccommend? (The smarter, the better) 4. What corals do you reccommend for a beginner? 5. What supplies do you need to start your very own nano reef tank. Also, what brands do you think are best? 6. Any tips and tricks? Thank you!

    Ricky's Reef (120 Gallon)

    Hello everyone, I am new to Nano Reef but not new to the hobby. I wanted to start a build thread to share my photos and track my progress over the years. I hope you enjoy and feel free to comment.
  7. Hi, I’m new to the saltwater tanks and have set up a fluval 13.5 with a nano protein skimmer, it’s been around for four months now! The tank has cycled and I’ve added a pair of clownfish and a pair of dragonets (that eat frozen food) and one cleaner shrimp. So since I’m new I really would like to research about some other fishes I could add, that being said I am really sorry if I ask some stupid questions! Is it possible to add a fire fish and a pink spot goby. I am only going to add the pink spot goby if there is enough room and am only asking because my older sister has a fish that is constantly bullying the spotted goby (and a bangai cardinal) and is asking if I have room for it and/or the bangai cardinal???

    Clownfish & Mandarin Dragonet

    Can two ocellaris clownfish and a mandarin dragonet live together in a 100 gallon corner tank? Yes, i will be providing plenty of live rock with live copepods which i will be harvesting. It will also have plenty of corals. (reef tank is my goal)
  9. My clown has been acting weird for a bit. I can't get him to eat even with garlic. I've tried medicated food for internal parasites but he won't eat it. Right now I am just treating the water with a general cure and epson salt. He is very unactive, breathing heavily, and won't eat. There is no other sign of illness. He does have a tank mate another clown which is new and been nipping at his tail, they are now separated to prevent further stress. What should I do? here is a video of what he's doing. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6E-o392Dx3U

    Algae growing on plants

    I bought a Red Scarlett Temple and a Mondo Grass a few months ago, and noticed that algae started growing on them. It not string algae, it's a green algae that grows on the sides of tanks. I have a ten gallon and just wondering if I can clean it off or what algae eater would be the best to help. Let me know if you need more info. Not at home but I can take a pic later.
  11. Hi so i am thinking of getting a weird/rare saltwater fish. I currently have a spriger's damsel, royal gramma and a lubbock fairy (my chromis and cardinal will be moved out soon) the tank is a 2o gallon cube that will turn into an sps tank (this thread used to be for flashlight fish)

    CLOWNFISH ACTING STRANG HELP!

    Hello everyone! So I have this pair of clownfish but recently they starting to act very strangely. They breath very very fast, they don't swim much, one of them don't eat much. What should I do? Its a 12 liter tank and I have a hang-on-the-back filter for 35 liters and I started aerating it and it has a decent light but it doesn't have any other livestock other than my pair of clowns. The tank has been up for 9 months and I added the livestock at June. Please help. P.S. I live in Japan, Tokyo so most foreign country products won't be available.

    Leopard wrasse care

    Hi all. ive been trying to plan fish for my 32 gal bio cube. I think a leopard wrasse would be awesome but some places say they’re really hard to care for. Why is that? Do they eat pellet/flake food or need live pods? Also some places say they’re listed as difficult because they struggle to survive shipping. Are they hardy once acclimated?
  14. I know it sounds really stupid buti am a VERY beginner and have just found the world of saltwater aquatics. I have always loved my friends saltwater aquarium and I want to learn more about this because I love clownfish and want to own 2 some day.
  15. Fish is about 2.5". Perfect coloration. I don't have a permanent lid on my tank rn so I'm looking to re-home him. Located in 06878. Pick-up only. Asking $30

    interesting fish

    i always see the same old things in tanks, damsels, clowns, tangs, dottybacks, etc. what kind of “cool” or just non generic fish are there for a reef tank? all my fish get along in my 5 gallon aby invertebrate suggestions? i’m think a sand sifting star but they’re creepy ngl clams seem interesting, i’ll just leave it at that
  17. Noob fish tank owner here! Wonder if anyone can help, I've recently bought a Biorb cube 30 litre and have been researching fish etc I'm after a combination of small/nano size fishes and that can live with a heater or not depending? Ideally i would want 1 catfish, 1 shrimp, 1 pea puffer and any other fishes that'll fill up the rest of my space. I need help as every website is saying different. I know 30 litres isn't a lot to work with but I'd like to make the best out of my situation. Thanks
  18. I used to be REALLY into fish when I was younger, but once I hit HS I switched to larger more emotive pets. I'm currently in university studying to be a marine biologist and suddenly got the itch again. But this time I wanted a marine tank, now that I can not only drive by myself but also have my own finances. This tank started back in January of this year. She fully cycled in 1 month through a mix of patience and some added bacteria. Shes had only 1 ammonia spike, which led to a few zoa losses, and my first pair of clowns passed due to unknown circumstances (I believe bad quarantine from the store, I heard from an employee that they only QT for 1 week). My new clown (different store) is doing well. I've got a new batch of zoas and some GORGEOUS LPS. I'm ADDICTED to color and movement (title *teehee) and am already planning on expanding. I should probably start at the beginning though for anyone who might be interested. Day 1: Jan 22 - Bought used for $200 + $20 (delivery) Week 2: Started the ammonia cycle on day 1 using frozen brine shrimp cubes. Added Fritz zyme 9 on day 14
  19. My clownfish that I have had for a little over a week has stoped eating he was eating a little in the beginning or at least been interested and nibbling at it and spitting it out but now he is not at all and I’m really new and I try to research but I don’t really know what it could be I tested the water yesterday and did a water change yesterday as well and today put the food in garlic and he is still not eating I’m trying not to feeding him brine shrimp frozen and not and Mysis and flakes and no luck please help look at pictures. I do sometimes see him pooping like little white strands coming out of the bottom of him and I do not see him eating at all. If he is constipated idk what to do and if he is he has been for 4 days

    Coral Beauty Angel Fish options?

    So... a local buyer was having a deal on a Coral Beauty angelfish. I have a 30G cube tank but now I'm hearing that it might be too small. I did do my research and many people advicated on allowing a baby coral beutty to be in there but I just want to make sure I didn't make a mistake. I'm planning on purchasing a larger reef tank (70-80G) in the next few months. I only have 1x Clown, 1x Sleeper goby & 1 Cleaner shrimp... The coral beauty I got is approx. 1in in length. There is enough rockwork to hide behind. I do have some LPS & zoas. Will she be ok in my current tank util I get my bigger one? Should I just keep her in the 20-30G long QT tank? or Should I sell her?

    ammonia at 0.25?

    Im having a problem in my tank. I have two clown fish a ceramic hide out for them and some sand. I usually use instant ocean, but recently switched to coralife salt because the pet store by my house ran out. After each water change (about 50, 65 %) the ammonia levels read at 0.25? I tested my water without salt and it was 0, but after I added in the salt it came up at 0.25. What should I do? Should I use another salt mix? And if so how can I know it wont be adding ammonia to my tank? Thank you.

    10 gallon cube stocking help

    Hey hey! So I'm 2 weeks into my cycle. Things are looking good, 0 ammonia 0.5 nitrite and nitrates are high. The cycle is getting their. I have reserved 2 clows already, as a fresh shipment came in at the LFS, and i have them put aside. A bullethole and a davinci both super nice. My question is how many more fish (if any) should I eventaully put in my tank? Not right away obviously but down the line. Currently have 10 hermits as well and 5 snails. It will be a mixed reef; Lps, sps and soft. Thank you!
