    I can't fit a single piece of starboard in a new tank I'm setting up, should I silicon the seam between the pieces, once I have them inside the tank? Is it worth the bother? Would detritus settle into the seam between the pieces of starboard? Thanks all!

    I have noted that most of the Ricordea I have seen has a fairly dense polyp counts. Mine has a fairly wide spread appearance maybe half to 1 third of the images I have seen. Is this indicative of health or maybe a lack of something? I would post an image but new digital is not here yet. And...

    Greets gents/ladies, Well I have been lurking here for a couple weeks and decided to purchase a 24 NanocubeDx. On a quick note, it would be nice if someone would post a noobs guide to the acronyms used here as it took me longer to decipher some of these than it did to figure out what...

    I am considering going BB. I have read a number of threads on here and I think this is a great way to help control various nuisance ions. My one concern about going BB is the diversity of life. I notice in my SB right now that I have tons and tons of worms (bristle and spaghetti worms). Do...

  17. The Think Tank Must Reads.
    Some funny misconceptions I've read about DSB's #1 That a lot of thought and "scientific" research went into developing DSB filtration. #2 That DSB's are mimicking nature. #3 That reefs rely on sand beds and grass beds for filtration. #4 That reefs rely primarily on bacterial filtration. #5...

I am interested in introducing (or reintroducing)...
