Tell me about micro bubbles? Will this be fixed by setting up a sump?

Not to self! Self don't turn off the skimmer and than expect it not to send lots of bubbles in to the tank, just like for the first two days after setting it up.

Is it not funny when the wife is telling you that, this is costing to much money! You will never finish, you will get over it! And acting like this is a waste of time and then all of the sudden you find that she is spending lots of time researching learning etc. And then all of the sudden you find that she is just as much in to it as you are or even more?

Just to break the streak of you talking to yourself I was going to say she needs to be more supportive.... but then she did come around. That is funny, my girlfriend also spends time sitting in front of my tank asking questions.

My b/f shows no interest in upgrading or building tanks but he sure spends alot of time looking at the fish and asking questions. lol He also has gotten into it a bit since he has his one saltwater fish, a mocha clown. lol he had a misbar osceallris but it went missing, you can't believe the whining he did too. LOL

It's a contagious hobby i think

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

Ok I have a confession to make! I have had fish in my tank for the 2nd half of the cycle, sorry about this but the kids made me do it! Last week I added a emerald crab as the lfs told me that they are great cleaners. They didn't tell me that they kill everything that they can get. Two fish dead and eaten by morning time and he is now eating all of the purple off of the snails. I guess I need to get him out! I need to get him out of the tank in the morning and he will be in a bag for like 6 hours before I can get him to a lfs. Is this something I should be concerned with?

I have 4 emerald crabs in my tank, and they have never bothered anyone. Are you sure the fish did not die before they were eaten, you said they were in before your tank was cycled.
