I added six cubes last night.


I think they are decaying because I can't see them in the tank anywhere.

Thanks.

Did you lose the attachment for the return pump? Youshould be able to get a replacement at home depot. I think it would be slip to barb or female to barb.

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

Another fish question!

Will Gobies eat Coral Banded Shrimp? I ask because for shrimp I am planning on having one coral Banded, that is it.

Also, I know Gobies can fight with conspecifics, but will that still happen in a 125g?
How many would you all be comfortable adding without worrying about fighting?
I was thinking 2 would probably be the limit, not sure though.
Thanks.

I suspect my pink spotted goby of killing 5 cleaner shrimp and 6 peppermint shrimp. So far my coral banded has been fine.

Questions galore tonight! LOL.

Why is the Black Bar Soldier Fish labeled ref safe with caution? Does it eat shrimp, not coral?


Thanks!

Oops just noticed that it says that it will eat crustaceans, that is why.
