    Does anyone know what this leafy macroalgae is that keeps spreading in my tank? It's like one big leaf, and it ripples out over everything. One piece covered an entire rock. If you need pics I can get some later. Thanks

    Here are some pics of some very interesting algae that I have in my tank. I have not been able to ID either of them using as many sites as I can. I think the red thread like algae is Red Turf Algae, but I have found pictures of RTA and it is not what I have in my tank. These three are of the...

    Hi, Does anyone have any of these Blue Tuxedo Urchins? I am thinking about getting one but I read they need alage to survive. I don't have too much algae in my tank. How can I feed it if I get one? I read that you can use dry seaweed, but how do you feed it to make sure it gets food? Thanks

    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...

    A friend is willing to sell me a GenX PCX 55 pump for cheap and I want to know if I can use it with the Bullet 2. It pumps 1140GPH and is capeable of 26 foot head, it has a 1 inch in and out. The PM websight lists the PCX 40 and Iwalkia 55 as good pumps and the Genx 55's numbers are really...

I have cooked rock before and have seen the difference it makes.:thumbup: I have been having brown wafer algae that is starting to take hold in the tank and has been spreading at a...

    Has anyone ordered live rock from Reefer Madness? I am looking at the Premium Fiji to start my tank. I'd like some feedback on the place if possible. At $4 a pound it looks like a good deal, but you never know.

    I just purchased a Salifert Phosphate test kit. My reef tank has been set up for seven months. I followed the test and didn't get any reaction. This was a suprize to me as I feed my tank pretty heavily. Has anyone had any experience with the Salifert test kit, or testing for phosphates in...

    Hello All, I have seen something in my tank for the last month or so, but it was a very fleeting glimpse. Once the main lights weren't on, then the lights were on but the thing moved from one hole in the LR to another very quickly and I didn't really get a good look at it. From what I could...
