    Ramifications of stirring up sandbed

    I have about a 3" sandbed. I had to take everything out about 2 months ago because of a leaky tank. I reused the sand and added some more live sand and everything is fine except for some Diatom problems. I really had no cycle with ammonia etc. There were some black spots but didn't cause a problem.

    I have bought from them twice with no problem. I would buy from them again.

    I think they are great fish. I have had mine for 2 years and he is my favorite. Great personality!

    Snails/Diatoms Question

    Hopefully you don't have a Carpet Surfer and he is just hiding. I hear they are shy. My tank isn't covered at all because of my lighting system. My LFS said they would have some in on Thursday, so that will give me a little time to get ready for him. I sure wish you luck in finding him. Please...

    Snails/Diatoms Question

    I really don't care about the borrowing as much as something to clean the Diatoms off the sand. There must be something that does that. My Blue Leg Hermits do nothing!

    Snails/Diatoms Question

    Thank You. I will be waiting to hear. I don't really have a DSB though. I have from 1-3 inches. Do you have to have a DSB for a Diamond Goby?

    Snails/Diatoms Question

    I have never had a Fighting Conch or a Queen Conch. I have never had Diatoms before either. I will look into them. Thanks for the reply.

    Snails/Diatoms Question

    I have been having problems with Diatoms for about 2 months. I was using Ocean Pure Salt and have changed to Reef Crystals to try and get rid of them. They are mostly on the sand. What is the best Clean Up Critter for Diatoms. I have heard that Trochus Snails are good. Any opinions? Thanks for...

    I tipped the large rock so he is closer to the light. He is looking a little better, but still hasn't opened his top tenticles. I think there may be more today then yesterday. Maybe he will be OK. Many thanks for the reply's.

    Thank you for the reply. The rock he is on is very large. The largest in the tank. I think I could move it up without a lot of problem. I just thought he would climb toward the light if he wasn't getting enough. He once moved inside the rock a ways and then come back to the same spot. He sure...
