    rescaping and removing sand help

    I have corals, invertebrates and a cleaner shrimp in the DT, so I do not want to start another cycle. Is there any way to remove the sand without starting another cycle? Wouldn't the live rock be plenty to keep the tank from going through a cycle?

    longfin fairy wrasse missing

    I looked in the sump but didn't see him, he was also not in the filter sock. It does seem like the fairy wrasse is a bit timid around the angel. He would flair his fins and the flame would just swim over by him, then the wrasse would swim away. I never observed any nipping or anything and the...

    longfin fairy wrasse missing

    I have not seen my longfin fairy wrasse at all tonight, even when I fed the fish. This is really unusual. Could he be hiding or could he have died and is stuck in the rocks? I have a screen on the top of my tank.

    new fish!

    I have seen my jawfish several times tonight. He is building a burrow inside the rockwork and is hard to see. He has swam out for about 1 second a couple of times so I got a glimpse of him. Is there anyway I can get him to build his burrow in front of the rocks so he is easier to see? I have...

    new fish!

    Just got a flame angelfish and a yellowhead jawfish. The flame angelfish is very active, moving inside and out of the rocks and all over the tank. The jawfish swam straight into the rockwork and I haven't seen him at all, even when I fed the fish. How long to you think it will take until I see...

    found wrasse in sump

    I found my longfin fairy wrasse in the sump just a little while ago. Lucky for him I didn't have my filter sock in. I put him back in the MT and he seams a bit tromatized. He is hiding underneath my donut coral. Will he be ok? I have a screened top on my tank and he must have tried to jump and...
