  1. General Reef Discussion
    Before I get started I have a 120 gallon tank with 40g sump. I got the whole set up from a lfs so it was already matured and with that I let it sit for about a month before adding any new corals or fish to it. Since then I've added two zoo colonies that were doing great and growing like crazy. I...

    Anyone know what this algae is? Right now it in my sump, but want to know what it is and if there’s anything that will eat it. I’m pretty sure it’s cyano or Redhair algae, but not positive. I know dinoflagellates (right spelling?) have bubbles like this, but I think the bubbles are from my...

  8. Water movement (pumps & wavemakers)
    I currently have 2 hydor koralia 1500 circulation pumps in my 150 tall, and I'm thinking there isn't enough movement in my tank. I'm getting cyano in several dead spots in my rock work, and no matter how i position the pumps it doesn't seem like enough flow. I have the opportunity to buy 3...

    I manually pick it out as best as I can each night or each other night (if you leave it get a little darker it comes up almost like a sheet). It's like a reddish or purple slime. In any event, cyano or not, any tips how to get rid of it? I used to do 2 or 3 small feedings each day now I really...

    We got home from a few days away and saw this odd red blob growing on our live rock. Any idea what this is? Is it red slime? Not sure what's up with the bubbles?? We have two hermit crab, trochus snail, cerrith snails, and a tuxedo urchin... I don't suppose any of them would eat that, would they!?

    I've been battling Blue-green Cyano for 2 months in my 40b reef tank (8 months old) with water changes, high flow, phosguard, and less lights. Immoved off most of the substrate and moved up the rocks. Now some hair algae is replacing the blu-green cyano on the rocks and Red cyano is showing up...

    My tank has been set up for about 3.5 months now. I started it with live sand and 30ish lbs of live rock-it is a 30 gallon tank. What's going right: -My three fish seem to be doing great, I have a clownfish, bangai cardinal, and six line wrasse. -I have two larger snails that have been...

    Need some advice on treating and curing red slime algae, don't want to use chemicals and don't want an immediate fix, want a long term as permanent fix as possible.

    So I have been having a bit of a cyano issue off and on for awhile now. Being that I started reefing using trt I do it the way that Geoffrey doc and the older trt members do it. Keep a ssb with weekly water changes good flow good skimmer. The way they do it makes sense in my head that's why I...

    Hi all. I have a couple of small spots like this one on a few of my live rocks. Is this Cyanobacteria? If so what is a good suggestion on getting rid of it? I just found out my salinity is pretty low and an in the process of bringing it up slowly (1.016) I'm not sure if that would be a factor...

    Hey guys I set up my 72g bow front a month or so ago, and noticed a cyano outbreak. I don't know what is causing this maybe its just a new tank thing? But I also heard that dry base rock will grow cyano? It does not grow on my cured pieces from my other tanks. I do weekly 10% water changes and...

    Hi all, I have done freshwater for may years, and after ALOT of research i decided to start my first saltwater reef tank. I know most people say to start big, but due to space in my apartment, that is not an option so I took the chance and went with the Innovative Marine Nuvo 8 Gallon. The...
