    I suddenly have a lot of bubbles on my Live Rock today. The only change I did, introduced Maxspect Razor X 200 with All channels at 100%. What could it be? Parameters are all ok. I checked. Some pics for reference.

    I added new live sand to my tank and started to grow green algae that had bubbles on the sand bed. I turned off the lights and the bubbles went away and the algae seems to be dying off but can anyone tell me what kind of algae it is and how I can fix it? I also have some new bugs on my glass and...

    Can anyone help me with what possible could be going on with one of my fish? The last two morning my Lyretail Anthias has what looks like air bubbles all over him. They are only on him in the morning and he acts fine, swimming and eating. He is active and his color is good. None of my other...

    I took a look at my tank this evening and noticed the crazy looking bubbly slime stuff in the picture. I believe the acro was maricultured. I only gave it a half hearted dip prior to putting it in the tank. It appears to have fern caulerpa or some other macro algae that hitched hiked with it...

    I have a 40B tank made by Marineland that i purchased at a $1 gallon sale last year. Just now trying to setup the tank as my first saltwater venture but the seams look scary. This is my first black silicone tank is this normal? None of my clear silicone freshwater tanks look like this. I drilled...

    Hey guys, I have a 29 gal bowfront and I have yellow to light brown algae that doesn't cover the rocks but is on rocks and attaches to air bubbles. I have no clue what this is but if someone could help me identify it that'd be great. My water is healthy, flow is good, but my lights are on 12 hrs...

    We got home from a few days away and saw this odd red blob growing on our live rock. Any idea what this is? Is it red slime? Not sure what's up with the bubbles?? We have two hermit crab, trochus snail, cerrith snails, and a tuxedo urchin... I don't suppose any of them would eat that, would they!?

    So this morning right before I had to leave for work I went down to my fish tank to just check on it. It was incredibly cloudy and the sump was filled with big bubbles (along with the protein skimmer). I was only able to find one fish in the tank which is not abnormal for me in the mornings...

    Hi, I've had my female erectus seahorse for about 8 months now with now problems. But yesterday, I noticed some bumps on her tail. There are about 3 of them, and they sort of look like bubbles, but the seahorse does not seem affected by them, and is swimming and eating normally. I looked into...

    Last water change, I decided to clean off some snail poop and other little flaws from my substrate and also moved around a couple of my rocks. I disturbed substrate quiet a bit. Next day: diatom dusting, following day: tiny bubbles all over live rock, following day: green algea on rock. By...
