    Check this out, I got called a TROLL in all caps

    This thread was about how he got called a troll for posting a video of his obviously overstocked tank. That thread was totally a troll. Granted, not as good as a "check out my new tang in my 30 gallon tank!" or "Hey, check out my new nurse shark!", but still a troll. This thread is a troll on...

    I'm not running anywhere. You said your fish are healthy, and then in the same breath say that your fish aren't growing. You said it, not me. Defend it. Tell me how sub-adult fish that don't exhibit growth over several years are healthy.

    Well, it's only been asked 6 times in the last month, in this forum, by people that can spell aiptasia correctly... Here ya go:

    Aipitasia HELP!

    You can start by reading the 2 or 3 threads on this subject that have been posted in the last two days. I know you're not going to believe this, but you're the first person in the history of reefcentral to ever have this problem!

    Least Agressive Acanthurus Tang

    I had to laugh as I was reading this thread. I was thinking back to when I was in Hawaii and I collected all the fish for my tank. I used to catch so many darn Convict Tangs that I was literally, constantly, throwing them back whenever I went collecting. Then I saw that guy who said he never...

    Banded Cat Shark in a reef tank??

    Questions about sharks and sharks in reefs have been asked about a billion times on this website. A bit of searching will provide you with enough reading for a few weeks. The only time I have kept cat sharks (of any type) was when I was in my teens and didn't know any better. When I was...

    This was an eye opener

    Could you elaborate on this thought some more? I'm intrigued by your theory of the poles acting as water magnets, and how the water that is "attracted" to the ice will disperse. ps: Lucie, brackish

    Aiptasia Control - rock at a time?

    I tried the Joes Juice with no luck. After the aiptasia killed my tank, I broke down the tank. Here's a clip of the thread I posted at that time: "Alright, to make a long story short, the aiptasia completely overran my tank, killed my corals (the gorgs at least went to the LFS before my tank...

    Aiptasia ???

    Ahhh, I forgot part of my story. After I broke the tank down, I put the rock in a tub of 52 degree freshwater for an hour, then left them in the sun for a few hours, and then...well read for yourself how hard Aiptasia is to kill:

    Aiptasia ???

    I cannot stress this enough: If there is any way you can physically remove the rock and, perhaps, chip the anemone off, ensuring you get the anemone and a small piece of the rock he was on, I very strongly recommend you do that instead of any other method. Like you, I had a single Aiptasia...

    Looking for aquascaping inspiration

    In my opinion, alot of people try too hard to be creative with their rockwork, and in the process build something that looks contrived rather than natural. Like you, I don't have an artistic bone in my body, and I struggle with aquascaping as well. One of the things I've been noticing on the...

    Dither fish and sensitve species.

    Clearly you're going to do whatever you think is best no matter what I say, so have fun. If it works for you, then great! I will reiterate what I already said again. The purpose of QT is to lower the stress level of the fish, observe it, and treat it as necessary. Of course, the recent...
