When I said compete, I was wrong in a sense. I worded that wrong. I should have explained better. We compete in the sense that we all strive to do the best we can, in most cases. I meant that we don't compete, where if we ask a question, we don't purposely get fed wrong info. If someone asks me," if I put a clownfish with a stone fish will that be ok?" Now myself knowing that as soon as the little clown swam above the stonefish, in a split second there went a $15-$200 (depending on the breed) snack for the stonefish. Saying, " sure!" Just so I can sit back and watch a failure, because his lost is my gain type mentality. if someone saw a picture of my tank, and said "I want that!". I would tell them exactly what they need to do what to avoid, and the best way of doing so. Now "competitively", I wouldn't want someone to have what I worked for, and either wouldn't give them the info or give them wrong info. That is where most of us aren't "competitive". this shouldn't be a hobby where we go about that " only the strong survive". This hobby is most of our passions. We help one another, without looking for anything in return. I apologize for rambling, but wanted to clarify.

A wet/dry is a form of below tank filtration more commonly found on fw tanks. It involves emptying water through a filter pad, down over bio balls (or other filter media) then back over to a secondary chamber that houses the return pump

Oh and amen

Awwww... Too bad about the tank deal!!! Yea! on the skimmer. don't start the skimmer till after the cycle, though. You didnt do anything wrong. You're still cycling, so high ammonia and nitrates are expected. You probably have high nitrites too?? What are the numbers for your levels? And I forget- what are you using to cycle the tank?

Hi!! How's the cycling going? Have you done any research on what fish you want to get after the cycle is done?

I wouldnt do the hippo tang either, for numerous reasons.
1) they are prone to sickness (mainly ick)
2) they are a bigger-bodied tang, so they need 125/150g+ tanks
3) when housed in a smaller tank, it stresses them more than normal, which leads back to reason 1
