  1. The THINK Tank
    So I'm building a home set up of phyto for my filter feeders (number of feather dusters, and a small yellow sea cucumber who has just split). I found a source that recommended using Miracle Gro ( http://www.miraclegro.com/smg/goprod/miracle-gro-liquid-houseplant-food/prod70194 ) instead of...

    So I think I am going to be doing a rebuild of my 120 gallon reef here soon. A few months ago I had a major outbreak of disease in my tank, and having no QT I was forced to watch and wait. As a result I lost half of my fish. With this rebuild I don't want that to happen again so I think I am...

    I have a 55 gallon salt water tank (no corals but I'm wanting to get some in the future). I got a powder blue tang about a month ago and I noticed he had ich a few weeks ago. I freaked out a bit not wanting to lose a $60 fish and got some copper treatment to get rid of the ich. Unfortunately I...

    Ok so liveaquaria says that maroons can't tolerate over .15 (yes that's all it says) I'm assuming that's ppm or mg/l. But I've read many people have treated them with cupramine with mostly no ill effects and seachem recommends a .5 level to kill parasites. To be clear here I don't have any...

    Ok all, I'm moving my aquarium downstairs this week and want an easy way to move water. I have a 1/2 hp sump pump and a long garden hose I could use. However, I've used these pieces of equipment to empty my hot tub which uses Pristine Blue to keep it clean (copper sulfate pentahydrate) at 0.5...

    Is there a difference between the copper in tap water and the copper in 2 part doses? I see that Kent and 2little fishes list it in ingredients, but I thought it's bad for coral?

    Copper has made this hobby possible. AT least the fish part of it anyways. I have been in and out of this hobby since 1984 and if there is one persistent problem for everyone it has been marine ich. Countless times I have heard, "ya I tried a saltwater tank but I could never keep the fish...

    I have hydroids in my tank for a few months now. They have ruined all my corals, and I think they are stinging the fish, which is where I have to draw the line! I have the digitate, colonial, and algae (where they grow and extend like a tree). The colonial ones have a white tube with pink...

    So before I add any fish to my tank, How long should my fish stay in the quarantine tank? If I add Cupramine Copper to the Quarantine tank will the copper leach into my Display Tank just by transferring my fish and kill all of my inverts?

    Several months back it was suggested to put a ball valve on the return pump. I Not thinking I placed a brass ball valve on there and a week later started losing corals and invertebrates. To my findings I had a 0.25 level of copper in the tank. Since then I have removed the brass valve. And have...

She has some really cool rocks but she said that she had treated her tank with copper in the past and I was wondering if there is a way to clear the copper...

    Well I'm in a bit of a pickle. I have a 60 gallon fowler tank that I want to convert to a reef tank. Everything had been going alright for a while now but I noticed after some water changes my one unknown coral on a piece of LR I got bleaches out. I've been using dechlorinated tap water for six...
