    Hi Everyone, I recently purchased an established reef tank and just transfered it to my home. It is 46 gallon (I believe) w/ PC 2X96, a biowheel, protein skimmer, powerhead, and a good amount of live rock. The people who owned it before started to neglect the regular maintenance, so even...

    Hi everyone, I'm new to the forum. I have a well established reef tank with mostly soft corals. I have a problem that I can't seem to find an answer to. I have small tubes that have grown out of my live rock. These tubes are very small and almost resemble a pigs tail. Only 1/4" long, they seem...

    ok, my tanks is only 3 weeks old, I am getting an alge explosion. I have to clean the glass 2-3 times a day. Is it supposed to be that way? should I try and slow it down? I mean is it good/bad/ugly
  17. Nano Reefs
    I have a 5 gal nano at work, and I recently had a death in my immediate family, so I was out of work for a week and a few days. One of my coworkers fed my fish (1 damsel) and my pistol shrimp while I was away. When I came back, the tank was completely green, which was understandable, but I can't...

    Have been setting traps for a week or so (One borrowed from Illusion, and one of the inverted bottle types). All I catch are hermits, nassarius, and bumble-bee snails... I have been using small 1/4" chunks of cooked/rinsed cocktail shrimp. If anyone has an alternate idea for bait I can use...
