Hey I have a 75gall mixed reef that's been running for almost 2 1/2 years.
Lately my clean up crew has slowly dwindled and I have some green hair algae and the occasional bubble algae and cyano. I have had very bad luck with the beautiful yet expensive powder blue tangs. But I have seen them eat...
I lost most of my clean up crew in the plastic tub basement reef.
Astreas, turbo, nassarious, cucumbers, and fire shrimp perished.
I have a few limpets and one turbo snail left I think.
What do you experienced BB reefers think I should buy for reef janitors?
Okay it is official, my 90 gallon build starts today. My stand came in today and I picked it up after work. :dance:

90 Gallon AGA tank w/offfset overflow
Custom Oak Stand and Canopy
40 Gallon AGA sump
6X54W Sunlight Supply Tek T5HO
Octopus Needlewheel 200 w/gate...
Is there some type of small tang or a good vegan eater that can live in a 38 gal reef. I am starting to have real problems with plants of all sorts taken over and even growing into some (one) coral. It's getting to be a problem.
I have a PB tang that I purchased about 3 months ago. He seems to be doing fine other than he has lost weight since I have had him. He seems to eat like a pig when ever I am feeding, and he readily accepts Ocean Nutrition formula 1 flakes, Brine shrimp flakes, Sea Veggies, SeaWeed Selects, and...
I have a 46g freshwater planted tank. Everything is going great, except I just started getting this nasty grey/black hair like algae. It is really wiry like it would be a fungus or something, but I am not sure what it is. Tank parameters are normal, nothing much has changed.
Alright, so me and Rachel went to the LFS yesterday, and we bought a new tank. Its 24"x24"x24" (A cube obviously). Its glass, with an overflow, but NOT drilled. I didnt want it drilled, because I dont want to run a sump. I have some things Im going to be using from my 20g, and some other...
I have a 44 gal hex tank that's been set up for about 1 3/4 years now. I have a crushed coral substrate, but plan on changing that to sand eventually (not sure how hard it'll be to change them). I have a GS Maroon Clown, one small Blue/Green Chromis, and a Neon Dottyback. I also have a Fire...
you know you love it! I did go into the archives, but wow, info overload. Here's what's up:
2 HOB filters
skimmer running good, but pretty dry skimmate atm.
hair algae is not crazy, yet, I spent an hour over the weekend pulling it by hand, but that gets tiring.
I don't have an RO...
An algae on my rock that I thought was cool at first, has now turned into a problem of some sort. It seems to be slowly spreading and replacing coralline algae. It may be " Lobophora variegata ". From what I have read, an urchin, foxface or some tangs like the naso or kole could help me out. The...
Good afternoon everyone. Just looking for a bit of advice.
Right now I have NO fishies in my tank.(a few Corals and crabs only) I would like to get one or two but I am not sure what fish will do best in my tank. It is only a 25gal. and I am looking for something to help eat algae. Any...
I am now thinking maybe to take someone elese's advice and get rid of the reef concept and go Fish Only.
What do I need to have a FO tank? Of course if I need LR I will get some new.
How is a bio-ball type sump or LR only in the sump? Maybe only having 2-3 pieces in the display for the...
What causes it? Should it be removed from the Live Rock? If so, How? What should I do in the future to prevent bubble algae? Little background on my tank first:
It is a new tank (1 month old)
All my levels have been prefect
I have dont 10% water changes every 2 weeks
