    I'm sure this has been discussed before, but in 2hrs of searching posts I haven't found specifically what I was looking for so I'll just ask. It sucks going to the LFS and picking out amazing SPS to bring them home and have them 'change color' under my 14K DE MH. They're still very happy and...

The VHOs are only 3 months old so shouldn't need replacement yet, but the others are hitting a bit over 8...

    One more option. If I got a 75G tank and stand. I can use a wetdry (new bioballs) that I have in the garage. I can buy the NO light for $80. If I found a skimmer for $300 I can set this up. What do I need for the fish? I will not have LR so I need some structure for them. Ideas? This...

    I have an 80gal tank with live rock and 4 fish. Every time I put a coral in the tank they wither away and eventually die. I have a good filter, skimmer, and lighting. I have no idea what the problem could be. I have a test kit that shows that all levels are good. My one thought is that the...
