This little girl didn't make it. She moved into a hide and just stayed there not moving. When I got up this morning, her shell had been turned over and looked empty. Since it's painted and flaking, I reached in, hoping to remove the shell. She was still in it. She has a slightly fishy smell but her...
hi all! Looking for a larger aquarium hopefully between 20 and 40 gallons. I currently have a 10 gallon since I moved cross country and I'm looking to upgrade again. If you have an old tank and are looking to donate or sell cheap, please pm me :) I live in NJ and am willing to travel to Philadelphi...

I have 17 PPs 2 E's and 3 Straws in a 150 gallon tank together. They mostly stay out of each others way unless they are at the food dish or in the moss pits where they all cuddle peacefully. The straws have claimed an area by the salt water, the E's like to tunnel under the coral, and the PP's have ...
Wow I've never had these problems with my E's. Maybe because there are only 2 and I adopted them from people that had them living peacefully with PPs for 2 years. Do you think it was cannibalism?
You can pour some boiling water on it and that'll kill any bugs. It's safe if you don't use any pesticidesJoeyCoenobita wrote:Ok, well I have the regular moss growing wild at my house. Should I use it?

Unless you cycle your pool, filters are pretty much useless. You'll still have to do water changes until you allow the filter to build up the beneficial bacteria that transforms ammonia into nitrate and then nitrite which is less harmful but still needs to be removed through 20% water changes weekly.
I fill pools (outside of crabitat) and sprinkle a dash of fish food, turn filters on and do nothing for about a month. After a month i can take a water sample for testing to the pet store. If its not yet cycled, i just give it a week more at a time until it is. Once the pet store says my tank is cy...

You can use vinegar as your soap to clean the walls of your tank and to sterilize shells. Make sure you mix with water if you're going to be soaking shells though, they will dissolve.

Have you tried the cup method to get her to reshell? Back when I didn't have any spare tanks to do an ISO and I had a naked crab I used a peroxide bottle and cut the bottom off and placed it around the crab as far down as possible, loosened the cap for airflow. You can do the same thing with any bot...
I think you should deep clean the tank whether they are dangerous or not. That's gross. I'm not sure what they are, they kind of look like the gnats I had. They aren't gnats because they do not fly. Ironically, I do have fruit flies in my tank that I'm trying to get rid of too. But I also just adde...
I'm seriously grossed out right now. I dumped some of this food in my tank and when I went to put the lid on a little brown bug was crawling on it. Upon further inspection all of the food was tainted with the little brown bugs and they are probably in my tank with the hermits now. Can some one ID th...
