    You mostly want to look for any pure white on them, or for there too be no color (and for some they do not open up even if in the right parameters).


    Do you have any photos by chance?

    Does it like smell like how a dead snail would be chance? Like that rotting color? I don’t have any photos but I’m sure I can ask him for some.

    I gave up on this a while back, but I am wondering, did they ever start getting stocked?

    Super late reply, but yes! Mine has them in stock in low quantities. Might be everywhere now.

    I have a friend who has a coral that hasn’t opened up for a week so far, and we’re both worried it’s dead. It still has color on the outside of where it opens up, but not sure if it’s just in a state of shock or if it’s gone already. Any advice?

    Are there any saltwater starter kits that make actual sense, and come with equipment that is an overall good value? I’ve seen a ton of freshwater tank kits but it seems hard to find saltwater tank kits for whatever reason.

    Do any of you own any fiddler crabs, and if so, what is your setup for them? I’m debating on getting some but can’t think of a good mixed land/water setup, especially one that fits their requirement for some salt in the water (brackish).

    Has anyone noticed that in some stores the breeders appear to be running low on stock on common (and some uncommon) species now? I also notice that there are a ton of fish that seem to be pretty sick or have some type of breeding deformation which seems like it appears that something is happening upstream. Has anyone else noticed this or is it low key just me?

    Looks like they just changed the ads and wording to be the “50% off sale” - not sure if we will see this progress after this sale date or not, but something to be aware of in case you walk in and don’t see the normal signage for the $1/gal sale.


    Have to love marketing changing things around.

    Although I can’t see the theme difference since I’m using the app, I appreciate the changes and the aspects moving forward! Thank you for working to make this community better over time (one day it’ll take off)!

    Which one do you use and why? Do you normally use liquid more frequently the longer it has been since you have placed root tabs, or do you dose both and then push down more root tabs after a year or two when they are all dissolved?

    I’m not sure if any of you guys are on any Facebook groups, but I’ve seen a TON of false information being spread when it comes to what cures work and don’t for specific diseases. For example I’m seeing a trend of people who are saying heat doesn’t kill ich no matter how hot, or that white cotton fungus isn’t treatable now. Any idea on why so many have committed to spreading false information recently?

    Probably the worst thing for me was a heater malfunctioning and basically shocking or overheating my fish while I was sleeping.


    Definitely not a fun time getting them all out while also getting shocked slightly until I found the piece of equipment that caused it.

    It seems like every few weeks, there are more and more fish related hobby events that are cancelled due to COVID and the restrictions set in place. I know smaller, local club events are somewhat still going on (although many have also cancelled), but when do you think we will see everything go back to normal?
