  1. General Reef Discussion
    I recently bought a $10 frag of acro to kinda see where my tank is at, as of lighting. The site called it "papa-smurf" they never have the real name... and that's why I am here. PLEASE help me ID this darn thing!

    Before I start This build thread I have to thank the person who is making it possible for me to set up this tank. So Josh, Thanks so much. About a month ago I came home from having some cocktails at a local establishment to find many gallons of water on the floor. Finding a leak when your...

    So it looks like a move is in order. After 3 great years in Philly, we are going to be moving back down under to Melbourne at the end of the year. I'm looking forward to going back to old stomping grounds, but sad at the thought of leaving my first ever reef tank behind... I will be posting...

    I think everyone had a great time. We had three new members, lots of interesting discussions and plenty of food. Dacro's agenda idea was one we need to think about and he is going to post more information on this in a separate thread. We also need to thank Jason for all the research that...

    1.) So first wow I forgot how bad a large amount of skimmate smelled. Its been a few years since I had a large tank and a large skimmer. When I emptied the collection cup on my recirc skimmer it was vomit worthy. Not really a question but a random thought. 2.) I got three mexican turbo snails...

    Just curious. If you've ever had a crash, for any reason, tell about it. Tell us what could have been done to prevent it if possible. I'll start. Years ago when I first got into the hobby, I woke up to a phone call from my mother telling me that the water was too hot ( my tank was setup at her...
