    Starry Blenny missing?

    I'm tearing down my tank due to a leak and started draining it and remove all the rocks. Removed all the fish except my Blenny. Can't find him anywhere. Checked all the rocks. Nothing. Do they hide in the sand? skeeter

    How important is it to have a higher salinity with coral/anemones?

    I was told by my LFS that they keep their salinity low to closely match the suppliers salinity so it is easier to acclimate them quickly with less stress to them.

    ATO, Why do people even need a ATO switch?

    Extruded vs Cell Cast

    So i cant decide to use 3/8" or 1/2". I was planning on a rimless tank so i am leaning to 1/2" but that means an extra $50 for the acrylic. Skeeter
