My tank is a 100 gal tank with 6-8 inches of live sand from various source include sand from the Gulf of Mexico. I found a bunch of small custaceans that is very much like mantis shrimps in the sand, burrowed in the top two inches of the sand. These custaceans are about .75 cm in lenth and .1 cm wide.

Multiple Morays

Whats the rule of thumb on keeping 2 or more eels together?
I have an 80 gallon tank I'm thinking of making into a FO aggresive.
Anyone have any good stocking ideas?
So far I only have 1 Clown Trigger at 1 inch.
I was think about moray eels and Lionfish.

Banghai Cardinals

I want to get a pair of Banghai Cardinals. I have a 10g tank with only one firefish in it plus the usual live rock and 2 peppermint shrimp. Would the BC's be "happy" in a 10g? I give this consideration because they seem to be the sort of fish that don't need a great deal of swimming room. All the BC's that I have seen usually just hang around and don't move around much ...

Orbic cardinal w/eggs

I just noticed yesterday that my male orbic is carrying eggs. This is their first breeding and I just want to make sure that I should follow the same game plan as for banggai's. I don't find a lot of info on the orbics but would assume that they carry about the same gestation. If anyone has any info I would love to hear about it. I have posted to Frank Marini but not heard ...

Banggai Cardinals


I was just wondering what your stories/thoughts etc were on this fish. It is one of my favorite fish right now, but might not be that way if continuing harvesting trends continue. i bought mine wild, but i am trying to breed them, so i can sell them to stores captive raised. So any info on breeding success/failures, or stories, anything just related to the banggai would be appreciated. Thanks
