As I have been gone for a few years, just set up another tank, and have recently been thinking of my good friend Tom, I'd like to bring up a topic he and I discussed long ago, but never received a satisfactory answer to. Anyone who is a diver knows that colors/wavelengths are filtered out of...

I was thinking of getting some of the live algae that Liveaquaria sells. It seems to me that if your water parameters are good you can have both food for herb/omnivores as well as pretty decorative plants. Any experience or opinions would be great.
I would like to add the color...
I would like to know how many of you have painted/laminated your back wall. If you did, what color you chose for your tank and what your wall color is. Or, if you chose to wrap your wires instead. And lastly, if you like it or would change it. Thanks!
I currently have a 72" Hamilton Cebu fixture that houses 3x250W Hamilton 14K MH, 4x60" T5 HO, and very dim blue LED's over my 180 DT. I would like to add more blue to my tank but don't want to give up the growth as my tank is about 6 months old with lots of small SPS frags. I've...
I'm in the process of doing a tank upgrade and it's time to deal with the back of the tank. My wife wants me to paint it blue like my old one but I want to do it black. She thinks black will make it look to dark.
If I was able to get to the back of the tank I would just use a rap but...

My daughter woke up the other day and asked why we can't have Nemo, and Dori in our fish tank, and I explained to her why...but then I got to thinking...why not?
Right now I'm in the world of Cichlids. I'm slowly selling off my stock of Cichlids, to make way for a breeding set of Cichlids, but...
I recently got an aussie prism favia and after dipping it, I out it in my tank and the green around the mouth starting sliming and now the green color pretty much slimed off. What happened and will it all come back?
I have a 75g I am setting up. I will be building the lights myself so the sky is the limit. I want to be able to put anything in the tank (sps, lps, softies, etc) not necessarily all at the same time. I just don't want to spend the money to build it to then be limited later. I will be using...
So I added 10 red legged hermit crabs to my invertebrate collection along with my 2 blue legged hermit grabs but I have a question. When I put them into my tank one of them is green! He looks exactly like the other red legged hermit crabs with the same shell and everything but he is...
I have a 29 gal corallife Biocube, its been set up for about 8 months now and i pictured it to be more in bloom. i don't know what I'm doing wrong, it just looks bland. I recently ordered a Tunze 9002 along with a media basket from 'inTank' and that should be here in the next week or so...
Here is my beautiful orange Monti. A friend gave me this frag (it was about 1cm) and said it was slow growing. However, after about 4 months it has gotten at least 5x bigger.
Anyone else got some super amazing colors out a SPS coral? Feel free to share
