    hello

    Hi

    Just starting out with a starter kit for marine fish. In fact with any fish since i had gold fish as a kid:) Have had it up and running for 6 weeks, so all help and advice is welcome.

    For starters can anyone recommend a good, easy to read book on tank and water matience? There seem to be so many out there!

    Also this is my first time on a forum so any advice there would also be handy.

    Thanks
    Toothie

    Thanks Chris

    was unable to find it on uk amazon but did find - "your first compleat aquarium" by the same author so hopefully will be just as useful.

    Also an abscure question for you - i have a crap that must have arrived with the live rock will it be ok in the tank or do craps need a environment where they can get to land?

    There are plenty of crabs that stay under water full time. Take a picture of it and post it and we will se if we can not identify it for you. Anything that comes with your live rock is called a hitchhiker. Some are good and some are real bad.

    Toothie,

    When I was growing up in Florida my father used to take me sailing and my mothers favorite story to this day is how I used to call hermit crabs "rocks with craps". So I never noticed util you pointed it out! :lol:
