    First and foremost, I would like to say hi, I randomly stumbled across this site when doing research for my marine tank in the near future and these forums look like a collage of collected people of similar interests and information, so I figured it was a good place to start asking questions. :)...

    Ok, I feel like I have a good handle on the basics of reef keeping 101. I measure this by the fact my current 180 sps tank is doing well.

    This is a Octopus CR-140 6 1/2in dia single chamber. The water flow inside the chamber is so strong it is blowing the media all over the place. There is a bracket in the bottom of the unit with holes in it. on top of that is about a one inch thick sponge. Then comes the eight pounds of...

    Ok, I know that Magnesium and Calcium go hand and hand, Strontium is also somehow added as well. What exactly are all the relationships with the three, how do they work together and against each other?? What levels of each are going to be most beneficial and stable in a reef tank, and if one...
