Dragonets have special feeding requirements because they have a very high metabolism and are grazers requiring nearly constant supply of food such as copepods and amphipods. On average they will eat

There is a new ich elixir hitting the market every 6mos or so. Sales benefit from the natural placebo effect ; some fish naturally survive less virulent strains of ich and some develop partial immunity wtih or without the elixir.

Never Argue with a Fool

Posted 01/22/2012 at 08:58 AM by snorvich (System configuration and fish for my two tanks)

They are also the fish most susceptible to cryptocaryon irritans.

Naso Tangs

Posted 08/25/2011 at 05:52 AM by snorvich (System configuration and fish for my two tanks)

The Naso tangs grow to be a spectacular reef fish; they are hardy, eat well in captivity, doesnít bother sessile invertebrates, and rarely quarrels with other reef fish. Sounds like the perfect addition to your reef aquarium, right? The problem is that it grows to an adult length of almost two feet!

Some aquarists such as ones on this thread say they plan to keep a particular fish until it outgrows their home aquarium and then donate it to a public aquarium, another aquarist or their...
