    So, I had to re-do my scape and install an LED retro on my BC29 and leaving the tank with only 2 inces of water for close to an hour resulted in all of my glorious Coralline algae that I was so proud of dying and turning white. I've cleaned it from everywhere but the back wall...It's still got a...

    I will start by saying that I am a newbie. Well, I had a saltwater tank 25 years ago, but I don't think that counts. Based on bad advice and lack of patience, I know that much of what I have done is not ideal, but I can't change the past, only what I do moving forward. To this point, my...

    Hi, My tank is a 55gallon 2 months old with LR, Long tentacles anemone, BTA, green carpet and mix of clown-fish. 2 weeks back I seeded the tank with small LR with traces of coralline algae and have been using Kent Purple tech. Good news is that coralline has started to form on few of the...

    Here are a few pics of a 120 reef tank that I purchased about a month ago. It was an established tank that I bought, broke down, redesigned, and giving much needed TLC. Here are a few pics of it.

    G'dafternoon, A brief inquiry as to whether you feel blue tuxedo urchins are compatible with chocolate chip stars? The star has a proven record of tracking and capturing/eating snails, as well as a much smaller red fromia (that was a sad day). It is fed meats on a semi-regular basis and can...

    Hi y'all -This is the back glass of my tank - I know the red splotches are coralline as I have good growth on all my rock and both sides of the tank (I scrape it off the front). The green has shown up slowly over the past 3-4 months and it, too, is hard and would have to be scraped to remove...

    Just thought I would share this as it has been very interesting so far, but my coralline algae is plating and out growing even some of my fast growing birdsnest. It ain't rare but it is interesting to see. Enjoy. <img src="http://www.thereeftank.com/gallery/files/2/7/2/8/8/imag2823.jpg"...

    Hello all, I'm new to the hobby and the live rock I got from my LFS is pretty dull and bland (As you can tell if you look at my pics). I was wondering if anyone had any good techniques to getting the caralline algea to grow. I would like to get some color in my tank. Thanks in advance for the...
