I just fell in love with my guy at the pet store yesterday!!! He kept swimming to the side of his tank and practically demanding attention. Plus when I first walked up his stripes were really light and the more I spoke to him the darker his coloring. Today I went back and he acted as if he recognized me. I could not go home without him and he ate a ton of snails and promptly took a nap. BRAT.

    Yes that is fine but when you are out of Moss (Sea hair) Return it to to the store. unless you can train to eat fish food. Good luck!

I was fortunate to purchase a pair of Cinnamons. The store associate said that she has never seen a nicer coloring of the two. They exhibit some rare colorings for Cinnamons. Their anal fins are all black and their dorsal fin is orange. I am pleased with my pair and hope that with right conditions in the tank,they will mate. I had to buy two anemones, long tentacled, because I only had one and the female was very aggressive about protecting it. Now with the second one, the male has his own that he tends to and the female will join him in caring for it. I also have a pair of Ocellaris, however, they were tank bred.

How do I get salt water? And do I need a special kind of filter for it?

    You normally mix your own salt water using aquarium salt and a hydrometter to measure the salinity.  Filter depend on size of tank and what you are doing.  A wet/dry system is the norm.

    Exactly how much salt (1,2,3 cups?) do they need, and can u feed them dead/cooked shimp?
  • Jeremy Roche - 2012-11-12
    The bag will tell you how much to add.  Make sure to get a salinity meter to assure you have and maintain the right salinity.  You can feed uncooked shrimp.

    Some great choices out there; snowflake eels, smaller groupers, lionfish,  larger clown and other as long as not too small.  Triggers can turn at any time.

Hi
I have had 2 blue tangs in my tank for 3 weeks. And I know 1 of them is really stressed but the other is always hiding behind the rocks and isn't coming out to feed because the other one that is stressed, when the one isn't feeding it wants to come out from behind the rocks but it can't because of the one that is stressed is chasing after it to get back behind the rocks. Why isnt it coming out and feeding?

    You are only supposed to keep one on its own. They are solitary fish
  • Pete - 2012-02-06
    Thats why why you should keep one per tank.
  • claire - 2012-03-02
    We have 2 in our tank and they never fight and they swim together, never any problems. So it is possible to have 2 per tank!
  • Mike - 2012-03-09
    Two or more are fine in a tank if introduced at the same time. Its even better if they are introduced together at a younger age. I have have had two in my tank for over two years with no problems. Also make sure your tank is not too small and not overcrowded.

    I have a 3ft tank can i keep a yellow tang and a powder tang together if i introduce them small and at the same time.
  • playdoc - 2012-11-01
    No.3ft. is normally about 25-40 gallons, and Blue Tangs need 75 gallons for one or two.

My panther grouper is about 7 years old now. Over the last couple of weeks he kind of stopped eating, he now seems to be in a stuck position of being bend kind of sideways. He can maneuver about and all fins are working fine - other than being stuck in this position he is kind of o.k. - but is probably ill - Parasite? I know he is old, but how long do they live in captivity? He has been a special pet to me - like a dog in a fish tank, does anyone know if there is anything I can do - or do you think it is time?

    Well it can't be swim bladder disorder, since groupers don't have one. It could be some kidney disorder caused by improper (long term) salinity:if you have the (bad) habit of keeping your fish at 1,021 to 1,023. Most Groupers can live several decades. As a rule of thumb: keep your fish only tank at the same salinity as reef tanks, 1,025-1,026 should be fine. Of course small or crowded tanks may please the keeper but prove to be lethal to the inhabitants. There should be less excentrism and more responsability in the hobby (which applies to all). Of course your grouper could also encounter liver damage caused (amongst other things) by a blood worm diet or other. Blood worms are considered to cause fatty degeneration in fish's liver. So any food with a fatty concentration should be avoided. Good Luck!!

    Have water conditions changed at all?   Maybe try feeding dried krill with tongs?  Added any new tankmates in the past couple weeks??
