  1. HOW I STARTED MY FIRST SALTWATER TANK Hello! And welcome to my first ever saltwater tank! I chose a 29G tank because it fit perfectly in my home office. I'll list more information about my tank specs at the bottom on this thread, so feel free to skip ahead if you don't need to learn from my very n00b mistakes 😄 TANK AGE: I started my tank Mar 10 2021, and added fish pretty quickly since I used both live rock and water from a local aquarium shop that did my tank installation & setup. Everything on the tests were fine, and correct bacteria dosage was added as a precautionary supplement. Tank status the morning before the first TEV: 2 juvenile Black Snowflake Clowns (was trying to pair, different sizes), 1 Sailfin Tang, 1 Green Polyp XS TANK TEVS (tank events) 1. The Seaweed Mishap I knew Tangs liked seaweed. I gave my tang Cheese a little too much seaweed. He tore it apart and it got everywhere. I didn't know what to do. I grew up in Monterey, CA. Seaweed is everywhere. Everything seemed fine. But no, this was dried seaweed. And you're not supposed to leave it in for more than 2-3 hours (I think don't trust me on this pls). This messed with my nitrate levels pretty bad. I really wanted to add another coral to my tank. I was TOO EAGER. 2. The Maintenance Day of Doom Oh boy was I so unaware of what was yet to come. I brought water to be tested at my other local fish store so that I knew it was safe to buy a coral. They told me I needed water changes. CHANGES yes, I too almost underestimated how many changes I was going to need. But more on that later, lets first start with my first ever water change. I drained 20% of the water, then added in ROI (is that the acronym? I'm hard of hearing and its so hard to hear the employees at the shop when they speak through their mask) water and to dilute the salinity and some of the nitrates. I let it run for ~ 1 hour to let all that "good-good" mix around with the water. Then I drained the tank again 50% and added more water. But I was foolish and did it by myself. And didn't use my hand. The water splashed....everywhere...it was so cloudy.. 3. Death Roe The unenthusiastic clownfish that was forced to become the male died first. He was weak because they were fighting for their first day (a couple weeks prior). A day later the female clown died. My Tang then came down with really bad ich. He died the next day as well. My Green Polyp was the only guy to survive. 3 water changes and 1 week later, I added 2 blue chromis to get some poop in there... but they died. It is because I bought them at petsmart. It was a bad batch. Don't recommend. Since then, I upgraded the filter, heater, thermometer, protein skimmer, and light. So it is basically like a brand new tank. Most of the gear is controlled by wifi automatically I love it so much. It is so worth the money if you want a low stress tank. I also got some really healthy live rock teaming with all kinds of healthy organisms from another local aquarium shop. My new fully paired clownfish are also doing very well. I have another cool coral frag that I will share about later. There is a BUNCH of tank drama around this coral at night. It is so fun to watch! Don't worry all this "drama" is literally just an ecosystem with a food chain. In the ocean, each species has its own way of protecting itself, and thats no different in this tank! The fish stay out of it, and the coral benefit from the organisms fighting over the seaweed. TODO: I will get to this things soon! It is night and I do not want to disturb my tank's auto light schedule. - Add images of tank and equipment setup - Add images of wildlife in tank - Add specs of gear - Add image of completed home office Please tag along for my journey or learn from it so no more fish are lost.

    Owning a Pseudoceros Worm?

    I’ve been digging around on google but couldn’t find anything about owning larger flatworms. Most people just want to get rid of the little pests they get with new rocks or coral, but I love how they swim and want to know if it’s feasible to either catch or buy a few like the one pictured below.

    Baby Snails?

    I was looking at the tank last night wondering what sort of nocturnal inverts have taken up residence in my little ecosystem and to my surprise I saw a legion of what looked to me to be baby snails! Can I get a confirmation on the type of snails these are and if they should be kept around? Also I've noticed in my sand bed I have two spaghetti worms that build gravel tubes and filter feed. They are small for now but are they worth keeping?
  4. Hi is this worm reef safe? Will it harm my corals or fishes? There are 2-3 of these worms in my tank. Should i be worried?

    Tiny black/brown worms in tank

    I am pretty new to this. my tank in cycled ammonia, Nitrite, 0. and Nitrate 1-5. I had tiny black worms in my tank, they looked as if they were just sitting on the sand maybe dead. They were a bit thick and only about a 1/4 long. I am not sure what they were I just vacuumed them all out so I dont have a picture. Any idea what they are?

    Fast worms in tank

    hey guys. A few days ago when feeding my candy cane coral and small worm, least I think it was a worm I didn’t get a good look because it was so fast, stold a piece of food off the coral and disappeared back into a hole. It was very fast. Faster than I’ve seen a bristle worm move. I Fw dipped the rock and the coral because I was afraid of bobbits. I saw many bristle worms and pods come out of the rock dead. I didn’t see whatever ate the food assuming it was a worm. I have previously seen small white worms try to take pellets from the coral but they didn’t move that fast when I watched. Should I be worried about bobbits? I have had the rock for 7+ years. I just changed my tabk to a biocube 32 Gal led. Didn’t add any more rock and only recent addition was the candy cane, a drag with two heads cut directly from the mother coral not on a coral plug. Should I be scared of bobbits? Rock and Cora is below. Coral total size is about the diameter of a quarter. Rock is maybe baseball size
  7. Hi, this is my first time posting here and I am wandering what sort if worm this is ( sorry the photo is bad) and whether it's bad or not and if so, the best way to get rid of it. I got up this morning and saw it. When I turned the aquarium light on, it seemed to try and slink back. This is my first marine set-up although I've had cold and tropical fresh water fish for years. Any help and tips would be greatly appreciated, Thanks!
  8. These little anemone looking things with white dots at the center and little fingers around it popped up all over my new live rock on the coralline algae. Anyone got an id? I can’t find anything online.

    Flatworms?

    Good Afternoon Everyone, I have a few of these yellow/blue looking worms on the aquarium glass. I have done the internet search and made best efforts to narrow down what Worm/Larvae these possibly could be. I am leaning towards flatworm at the moment but can only identify a rounded head u like the shovel shape of a planarian. My sixline is picking at things from the rockwork as usual but I haven’t seen him go for anything on the glass yet. Has anyone experienced these little critters before or have any idea what they are before I go and dump chemicals into the system to fight flatworms?

    what kind of worms are these??

    hi, I was just doing a water change and as I was gravel vac-ing I noticed something go up, and as I checked my bucket water I see this little reddish transparent worm. I'm freaking out because I don't know what it is? is it a bristleworm? is it good or bad? as I look through that same area I keep finding them. I think I found like 6 or 7 total. I'm keeping them in a little container until I find out if they're good or bad. some were big like around 1 inch long and then some were smaller like babies. please let me know what to do with these. even if they are bad I would feel so bad killing an innocent creature 😞 I know, call me stupid. thanks in advance.

    Cycling tank; critters

    I'm currently cycling a tank with live sand/rock and I've spotted some life in the tank. I have no idea what they are except for a feather duster I saw earlier today. I've attached a picture below; the blue is part of the sand; the little life form is dark yellow/brown with the dark strip running down the middle.

    New clown problems

    Hey Guys. I am new on this forum, so I will introduce myself first. My name is Jan and I am from holland (so excuse me for my English I hope it will suffice). After reading a lot for months I finally dived in the saltwater world. I have over 30 years of freshwater experience and always wanted my own reef tank. Now time permits so... you guys will understand. As always I prepared very well (at least in my opinion), but I still encountered a problem. My tank is a 30 gallon which is up and running for two months now and was cycled using Red Sea Reef Mature. My parameters were steady for several weeks and about one week ago I bought my first clownfish. Two beautiful clownfish (first generation tank bred). After introducing them in my tank the small one ate directly but the larger one was a bit afraid. The day after I fed them again and since then the larger one is eating like a pig and the smaller one is not reacting to whatever I introduce. (Pellet food, brine shrimp, mysis and a marine mix freezer food) the first day I noticed some white feces by both clowns however I never saw this again. (Stress?) After gathering a lot of information over the last week I bought prazipro (which takes 10 days to arrive at my doorstep). Do you guys have any suggestions what I should do. At first I hoped he was just to nervous to eat but now I think something is wrong. Especially since the larger one is behaving perfectly! My parameters are: zero amonia zero nitrite 2 nitrate salinity is 35 Temp 26 degrees Celsius kh around 10 ca 450 mg 1400 i know I made a big mistake by not quaranteening the fish. Believe me... this will NEVER happen again. So the second question I have is: what meds should I use when quaranteening a new fish. Thank you guys in advance!
