    I was a little dismayed with Neptune Systems Apex platform for a couple of reasons (proprietary, expensive, lack of options), so I decided to build one for myself! 100% open-source (P1AM is literally just an Arduino MKRZERO in IP20 housing.) 100% off-the-shelf components Here's the latest...

    OK so our tank is coming along nicely. After our unfortunate loss of Mr. Stripey we've decided to let the tank go barren for 2 months to kill the Ich. Any new additions are quarantined and treated with copper (LFS definitely has crypto), and not any of that other "all natural ich control" crap...

    So as my aquarium hits 140 days old today, I had some small green hair algae a few days ago and now some I would consider a minor invasion. I've been fishless for almost a week now and was feeding every other day. Nitrates are 20-40 and phosphate is still 0.25 or lower. It seems this is...

    Does someone with some aptasia want to try something? You will also have to have some asternia stars. I have psuedocorynactis/corynactis in my tank and was looking at what they may eat that was already in my tank. I tried feeding them brittle and asternia stars. The brittles were consumed...

    Hello all, I was wondering what's everyone did to keep their hair algae at a minimum. Mine grows everywhere like crazy. I pull out handfuls weekly :mad: . I have carbon bags that I change out then snails and an algae blenny also, and I really want a sandsifting sea star but haven't gotten there...

    Ok, so there is a never ending macro-algae/refugium war going on raging and it got me to thinkin' (dangerous)... I was sitting back watching my xenia in my nano-jam tank and I was wondering if there was a soft coral that did not release calcification inhibiting chemicals. Basically I was...

  16. Lighting
    My tank is generally in the 76-78 temp range. With the new MH lights I instsalled with the legs it came with, the temp increases to 80 after 3 or 4 hours. I've read the lights should be on (14k) about 10-12 hours for the corals. Isn't 80/82 too much fluctutation and heat? Wondering if its...
