Yeah but then that would most likely destroy a lot of good things in the live rock. Pretty drastic step to take just for a couple hitchhiker crabs. The glass method is one of the best. Just put some...

It's probably just acclimating to its surroundings, and the new water chemistry. There's probably no way to really coax them from their tubes as feather dusters are extremely sensitive and they can...

I'll answer this...

Duncan coral are not filter feeders.. so... no, it probably won't benefit from broadcast feeding. Not unless you broadcast feed your tank with larger then normal fish food. If...

If your light is not strong enough, then yes, placing the algae closer to the surface of the water where the light is more intense, would be a good idea.

No problem, that's what we're here for. Carey gave some good advice too, as all anthias need to be fed at least twice a day to keep healthy and active. ;)
