    Hey everyone. My new tank (10 days old, cycled for about 6 weeks prior) is 10 gallons, and is populated with 5 hermits, 2 peppermint shrimp, 1 snail (I had really bad luck with snails), two softies, and a yellow-belly damsel. The hermit crabs and snails went in first, and then my damsel, and...

    Hello. I have had my tank up and running for a while. It is a 40g cube. I have a Clown, baby Blue Hippo Tang, and a Royal Gramma. Everything was running smoothly up until I bought a blue hippo tang (not sure if this is the cause of the issues yet) and introduced him to the tank. I did not have a...

    Hey guys, I just setup a fowlr tank that I'm later going to transition to a reef tank. The water is cloudy and it has been for almost a week. What I did was mix salt with the water in the tank then dumped the sand in (I rinsed until clear). The water was murky so I ran my filter hoping it...

    Ok so I have been battling GHA for a while. I blame it on not cooking my dry rock before setting up. Tank is 5 months old and 3 months post cycle. I scrubbed the rocks free of severe GHA with a toothbrush and added a large amount of fresh GFO to my reactor. Then...the water went very cloudy...

    I just yesterday had a random issue of having super cloudy water. I don't know what has caused it. I assume its a bacterial bloom. I've recently started dosing my tank with Red Sea's Reef Energy (coral food). maybe this caused a nutrient spike and is allowing a booming bacteria population?? I...

    Maybe this is nothing but... I added a large leather toadstool to my 24 gallon tank yesterday and did a 1 gallon change with r/o water (it did look cloudy). I am having trouble with my "intelligent" light so it's been on weird over lighting cycles. Now the water is cloudy. Brownish ring on the...

    Hello! I'm new to the saltwater tank hobby, and I am cycling my first tank!. The cycle is now almost complete after almost 6 weeks, but when my skimmer arrived and I installed it, the water turned cloudy and it has been like that for about a week now, and it doesn't seem to be the aragonite...

    My cycle has been going for about 2.5 weeks now. I have 10 pounds of live rock and 25 pounds (give or take one pound) of dry rock. A seasoned veteran in Saltwater reef tanks suggested I put in some raw shrimp to jump start my cycle. This person is an old friend so I trust him. Well I put...

Last month I got my RO/DI unit and have since done 4 water changes and 8 freshwater top offs. Since getting the RO/DI I have added a neon green bubble tip anemone, which will later be moved...

    Ok so my water turned a year old and my tank 4 months. I have had horrible algae in the current 55 for most of the time I've had it. I have a skimmer that hasn't really worked and a sock that didn't change a thing. It has been cloudy for months! The fish all seem fine though. I really don't know...

    I just added Fiji Mud to my refugium as a booster but I did not turn my pump off. It instantly clouded my tank. I let it sit with everything off for 2 hours but I still can't see in my tank. Will this harm my fish or corals? Is there anything I should do? Thanks for any advice.
