Why do clams look so different when viewed from above vs when viewed through the aquarium glass?
It's important to acclimate your coral to new lighting. Lighting can drastically change how your corals look in your aquarium.
Have you been making these common quarantine mistakes? Contrary to popular belief, quarantine done properly is not dangerous and stressful to new fish. This should be a rest and conditioning period for your new fish.
It's possible to keep more than one tang in the same aquarium, but there are some simple rules to follow.
Biota Hawaii has been working hard to produce captive bred Blue Tang for the aquarium hobby. We have these available in small numbers right now, but will be amping up production, so we plan for these to be a regular addition to our catalog in 2023.

Biota is offering captive bred Bluestreak Cleaner Wrasse produced in conjunction with our partners at the Oceanic Institute of Hawaii Pacific University.
The Biota captive bred Cleaner Wrasse is a great worker fish in aquariums. They pick and clean pests and parasites off larger fish and will even create specific cleaning stations.
As wild caught this species is notoriously difficult to keep in captivity because they don't adapt well to aquarium life and they don't like to eat prepared foods, instead preferring to clean large fish. It's also difficult to know the age of a wild adult and if it is at the end of its lifespan.
Captive breeding solves these problems. Our Biota Cleaner Wrasse eat a variety of prepared pellets like Easyreefs DKI pellets and frozen foods. Being born in captivity they're well adapted to aquarium life, and we know the exact age of these young fish so they will live their full lifespan in your tank.
