Why not breed the saltwater fish on farms everywhere? Most fish in freshwater tanks—which are much more common, less expensive and easier to maintain—are indeed farm-raised. But breeding saltwater fish in an industrial aquaculture facility requires re-creating the coral reef ecosystem, a technology that is just moving out of its infancy.

I have been using crushed coral for sometime now, in all my tanks. 125, 55, & 45 gallons. In each tank I have Shubunkins. Lately I’ve noticed that the fish in the 125 gallon appears to be sluggish. I did a little research and someone suggested using Prime in my tanks also. Not wanting to overkill, has anyone tried using PRIME, with the CRUSHED CORAL?

I grew up on the water always fishing and having fish tanks as a kid. I graduated Southampton College with a degree in Marine Biology back in 1987 and was hired on as an aquarist at the New York Aquarium in Coney Island, Brooklyn, New York. At the time, there was one 90 gallon display tank that was maintained as a reef tank and while some corals did well, others over time faded away. What intrigued me most of all with the tank was watching soft corals like star polyps actually spreading over the substrate and generating new polyps… simply amazing. I was forever hooked and at that point I was a confirmed Coralaholic. My thanks to aquarists Werner Schreiner and Steve Abrams for opening my eyes to the cnidarian world.
DIY article on how to create a home-made algae scraper for glass tanks. A good scraper can really make a difference when it comes to getting the encrusting coralline algae off you marine fish tanks.So, the main point here is to find out the behavior of the corals you plan on keeping and if they'll do well with other corals you're considering. Mixing dissimilar coral species in the same tank is not the best idea. I know, you see these types of tanks mixing soft and stony corals everywhere you look. It's sort of like when you see a tank packed full of fish on the cover of a book or magazine. It makes a pretty picture but can be quite the headache to try and maintain long term. At the minimum, give your corals plenty of space in between them.A marine aquarium is an aquarium that keeps marine plants and animals in a contained environment. Marine aquaria are further subdivided by hobbyists into fish only, fish only with live rock, and reef aquaria. Fish only tanks often showcase large or aggressive marine fish species and generally rely on mechanical and chemical filtration. FOWLR and reef tanks use live rock, a material composed of coral skeletons harboring beneficial nitrogen waste metabolizing bacteria, as a means of more natural biological filtration.
Pseudochromis fridimani. The naturally occur in the Red Sea but increasingly are available as tank bred (and much less expensive). Don’t mixed with other dottybacks species. May chase smaller fish and will defend its hiding places. Feed meaty foods including brine shrimp and prepared frozen. They don’t bother corals will also prey on small manits shrimp and bristleworms making them a good addition for reef tanks.Larger angelfish are similar to pygmy angels in that they tend to be individualistic. This basically means you take your coral’s lives into your own hands when you add one! I have seen Regal Angels Pygoplites diacanthus, Blue-Faced Angels, Pomacanthus xanthoetapon and Navarchus Angels, P. navarchus do quite well in reef tanks but I have also heard reports of them decimating coral populations. Large angels are best left to those with more experience.
