    These are the foods and supplemtents I use. I use a seringe with a .5mm dull tip to direct feed. It works quite well. The coral accel I just do a squirt into the left side of my tank I dont use the suringe for that.

    Ok so my tank has been up for about 9 months now. Its doing great, but I only have one complaint. When I first setup the system, I spent about $400 on 3 nice peices of rock.

  13. The Think Tank Must Reads.
    Anyone want to take a stab at the nitrogen cycle and denitrificaton? I noticed, among a lot of other things, that the hobby explanation is not accurate at all. (you can't quote hobby references ;) )

    On a recent trip I made to Miami, I had the chance to visit several LFS…….. I was really impressed with the reef tanks they had, but I was more impressed with the fact that most of them were running wet/dry filters. We are talking of some huge aquariums completely filled with corals and no signs...

    Yesterday I got home from work and noticed these little black things on these zoanthids. I'm not sure what it is, but they are all getting it and aren't opening. It's not a nudibranch, I know cuz I haven't added anything since I put these in my tank a month ago. The water params are: Ammonia: 0...
