    Starter Fish in a New Reef Tank

    THis is getting more confusing by each post! I thought this was going to be a simple question and you'd all come back with the same answer, well I suppose you have - there aren't many non-aggressive fish!!

    Starter Fish in a New Reef Tank

    Must admit first time I'd heard that Clowns were so aggresive. If, as I've read, it's best to add the least aggressive/territorial fish first, then maybe I should leave the clowns til later. Any suggestions on fish that are less aggressive/territorial? Firefish? Damsels (have read certain...

    Starter Fish in a New Reef Tank

    Thanks for the advice, will probably just go for a very young pair of tank bred common clowns to start of with and give it a few weeks before adding some more fish

    Starter Fish in a New Reef Tank

    Thanks for the above. Tanks been mature for quite a while now, Live Rock and crab's only been in there for about 2 weeks and waters now good quality and stable. So bearing in mind all this - at the outset how many fish can I put into a 5 x 2 x 2 tank at once ? Should they all be the same type...

    Starter Fish in a New Reef Tank

    Thanks for this, had been told something similar from a guy at a pretty good shop - especially if the clowns are tank bred. My biological system has been up and running for quite a while now, live sand has been in there for about a month and live rock and crabs about 2 weeks. So pretty...

    Starter Fish in a New Reef Tank

    Had my 130 gallon reef tank going now for a few weeks, included live sand and live rock and water quality is good and has been stable for over a week now. The only inhabitants I have in there are a few Algae crabs. This coming weekend I intend to put some fish into the tank and wanted some...

    Converting a freshwater tank to Marine - any top tips?

    Thanks for the comments - think I'll try and go the same sort of route and just take things slowly with getting the livestock in there.

    Converting a freshwater tank to Marine - any top tips?

    Seriously ?!?!? What about the substrate will that not need to be boiled clean ? And the rocks or will any algae on them just die off ? If this is true, this will be a lot easier than I'd first imagined - although to be honest I couldn't think of any logocal reason why the water could not be...

    Converting a freshwater tank to Marine - any top tips?

    I have previously kept a Marine Reef system for about 18 months, but had to give that up when I moved abroad. I have been back into fishkeeping for about the last 6 years now and I currently have a 5ft x 2ft x 2ft (100 gallon) Tropheus tank. I have 2 large externals, 2 heaters and good lighting...
