As SniperHank said, they are opportunists and they will eat whatever they can get. I had one get my pygmy angel while it was asleep.

The previous owner glued everything together, making it impossible unless I change out the bulkhead adapter which is unreachable without taking the tank down again.

I had asterinas get into my tank and now can't get rid of them. When there were only a few it was fine. They multiply rapidly and, last time I cleaned my tank I threw out nearly 100 of the darn...

I used a heavy black cloth when I had mine. I attached sticky-back velcro to the top edge and added a few sheet metal screws to help hold it in place, then I had my wife sew the other part of the...

An aquarium-safe epoxy would work. If you are talking about live rock you can use nylon zip ties to hold them together. (Less chance of putting something dangerous into the tank.) Just install them...

I think I found the problem. I have a flex line going from the tank to the pipe going into the sump. There was a pretty large S-bend in the line that I had repositioned while doing some cleaning. I...

Off and on, about 2 months. Sometimes it almost goes away to the point of not being irritating but then at other times it is noticeable across the room.

Question Durso standpipe problem

I have had my durso in the tank for over 2 years. Never had any issues with it. Now, the past few weeks, it is making some strange noises. Not like the flushing or gurgling you would expect, but a...

Interesting, to say the least. My question would be, "Where are the nitrates coming from?" Has this tank been cycled?

You can always hang it on the back of the tank. It looks like you are trying to keep your tank cleaner though. If you can hang it in the sump and make it work I think I would prefer that, but you may...

Looked again this morning with a flashlight, same size as before. Doesn't seem to move nor does it recede in darkness. Strange, but when you see it the things look nice.
