    Hi All So my tank is a few years old now but the rockwork is new (3 months, using marcos dry rock).

    Hey guys, I have owned a 10g nano for almost a year now and am really enjoying it. Since summer coraline algae has started to grow at a noticeable rate. My water parameter's are okay with my nitrates a little high around 30-40 ppm, doing weekly to biweekly 10% water changes to lower it. I didn't...

    I'm currently running a 90 semi reef. It's been up and running about 7 months now. About three weeks ago i thought i had a algae outbreak as my rock was turning light brown.

Went to the LFS and got 30lbs of live sand and 40lbs of fully cured coraline loaded purple rock. Filled it up with Catalina Ocean water and...
