    I read through the archives and the only places I found mention of trying to make your own rocks I saw comments about them being ugly. What has me thinking about trying to make my own are that I simply can't find rocks the right scale and dimensions to create the look that I want. The look that...

    Thought I'd share and compare my sand bed husbandry techniques with you fine folks. Over the last 4 years my tank has evolved from a 29g to a 70T. I have done the BB, SSB & Plenum. And ran the gambit of substrates from ultra fine to crushed coral (even crushed oyster shell:arg::arg:). I...

    I have been reading a few web sites about making DIY Live Rock. My question is in regards to the curing of the rock. I know what it means to cure "regular" LR, but how does that apply to man made LR? I thought to cure LR it means to set it aside for a few days in a seperate tank or container...

    Do cats drinking out of my water in my curing of agrocrete cause a pH rise? I try to keep them out of it, and even with salt in it they still try to drink it. I keep the pH down by changing out the water when the pH gets high. I know it is bad for them to drink it with a high pH, but I still...
