    Live Rock Critter Identification

    Live Rock and the various creatures on it was the single biggest pull for me to try out a reef aquarium after owning several freshwater setups. The amazing diversity of life in a marine tank and the factor of "not knowing" what it is that is living in there is something that can't be replicated by your standard tropical freshwaters. Whether to mark pests for removal or out of scientific interest, this guide to identifying some of the more common hitchhikers on yo

  • Caddisfly larvae

    Caddisfly larvae

    Just concerned for my little endlers as I found a couple of these insects. They don't swim particularly fast and I can't exactly tell
    where they start and end because of their camouflage. Not quite sure if its part of their body? The head pokes out and they swim around clumsily.


    I have not noticed a decrease in the number of endlers but they do breed quite fast.
