Ok, just to make sure...even the partisians, I'm getting a fuge tuesday that has the sections in it to seperate the fuge, the bioballs (which I am not using) and the pump. Will the roots be strong enough to push threw them since they are glued together?

hummmm my guess with that set up is yes over time for sure it would! but could be wrong i know they use weldon which is very strong glue but only would take a small part not glued right for it to push thru ! best to be safe and use a plastic tub !

Thats how I caught one. I spent 18.99 on a trap and they aren't interested, but I saw one hunting down a crab and to make a long story short we pulled the rock and after pulling it out it jumped into the bucket we had underneath it. So now I am trying to bait them (I think there are two more, one on each end of the tank) into smaller rocks that can be easily taken out w/o destroying my rockwork (the rock they are in are about 30+lb's each and both on the bottom). Cool, what kind of tank is it going to be?

I bought one trap and made another with a pop bottle but all I catch is hermits!

Good luck with the reef. The only thing I don't like about having a reef is that I can't have an angelfish. My husband is going to do a lionfish tank and I am hoping he goes big enough to have a large one, but we'll see what the budget allows

I just picked up a mangrove and stuck it in my tank in some LR. It look shappy.. It's getting too tall though.. How low can I cut the stalk?
