    So my little terror — I mean, lovely toddler — managed to get ahold of my Marine Depot refractometer last week while I was doing a water change... I know, I know, 3 year olds and cool looking telescopic gadgets don't mix well. I learned my lesson. Now I need to mix SW for my upcoming WC. I...

    Hey All.. Our plans for upgrading blew apart at the seams LITERATELY almost 3 weeks ago.. We had bought a 150 gallon USED tank... Not knowing anything bad could happen with a used tank. I ran a fresh bead of tank sealant along the inside and outside of the 3/4" thick glass.. Set it up added the...
  3. "Soft" corals
    Good morning, I recently purchased 2 new additions to the micro reef; an orange and a pink strawberry/chili coral. I introduced them to the tank and they did very well, opened up and extended to full height. I recently re-arranged the tank to optimize the space and created a cave for the...

    I was very surprised the past few days when my temperatures were staying at a steady 82 degrees. I pointed a large fan directly at the top of my sump and it did not bring down the temperature at all. Yesteraday morning I decided to stick another heater I had in the sump and see what would...
  6. LPS Coral Forum
    Hi all - before anyone asks, I'm still figuring out how to take pics, but hopefully I'll figure that out tonight. So, I bought a three headed dendro frag, however, 1 of the branching heads (from the biggest polyp) seems broken & is indented toward the center of the coral. Even though I just...

    Okay so the prop is apart from the magnet. Is this under warranty? Or should I just throw some superglue on the bad boy and call it a day?

    I have had my fish tank up and running for a few weeks. I have a 75 gallon with a 20 gallon sump under it. The heater is located in the sump. The heater is a 200 Watt. Fully submersible. I have had the setting on 79 when i first started, that is what i have always kept my fish tanks at. I then...
  9. LPS Coral Forum
    ok so about 5 minutes ago i was fragging my frogspawn LPS, my cut was below the living tissue but the head still cracked like down the side (no pieces are falling off or missing). i then super glued it down to a plug so that the entire thing wasnt going anywhere in hopes that it would heal like...

    Help! I was performing routine maintenance on my 40 Gallon Hexagon Reef tank, changing 10 gallons of salt and inserting a new carbon bag into my canister filter. When I went to go tighten up my canister the lid holsters snapped and water sprayed everywhere. Now I can't run my filter! I have a...
  11. General Reef Discussion
    So I just got back from a 5 day "vacation" from Germany, it was to visit my very sick Grandmother. That was probably her last Christmas :cry:. Anyway, I had a tanksitter come by to do top offs, food, etc. Everything was going fine but when I got home, I couldn't believe my eyes. The sand was...

  13. Water movement (pumps & wavemakers)
    I bought a couple about two years ago, and for the last month or so...they've been acting up. Today I took them both outta the tank to do maintenance on them and find the problem. I think I found it. I took off the front cover of one of the units, exposing the impeller and the motor. I then...
