    I have a 200 gallon tank that has been up for over 20 years. For the past year everything I put into it, except fish, dies. Finally yesterday we looked for possible Bristleworms at night. We were shocked. There were, no kidding, thousands. We have ordered a trap, but does anyone have any...

    I am hoping someone can help me with this answer. I have a 110 and I am curious if I could use crushed coral instead of stand for my reef tank.

    I have read a bunch of forums in TRT about this problem. My 40g reef has been up for about 3months now and I left for Vegas this past weekend and returned yesterday.

    I've been slumming in some of the other reef forums and have been amazed at all the bickering about BB, DSB, SSB.... All the negative talk about a shallow sand bed has me kind of freaked out. I have ssb in my tank of about 1/4 - 1 inch. I haven't been vaccuming the sand at all and have noticed...
