    Hi all, So I am still learning about Saltwater tanks (Learning a lot per minute here), and my tank has been running for about 3~4 months. I did a water change last week, and I am about to do another one tomorrow, but for a few days, I have noticed a "dust" in the water, mostly at the top that...

    How long does it usually take for the sand dust in that comes with live sand to settle? Its very clouded i added the sand about 2 hours ago. I left my powerhead facing the surface on.

    OK so normally I keep the top of my DT and sump covered with a glass lid. My theory is I don't want dust to settle in the tank and cause a problem.

    I'm in the process of cycling my 20l and I'm about to buy some lights. With the t5 I would assume there is no cover on the tank. What do you put on there to keep dust out, fish in and fight evaporation. Or am I just missing something and a cover should be on? If so, what type?

    Hello all, So last time I posted I had questions about my 40g tank. Well 40g didnt seem to make the cut for me so I ended up getting a 75g tank with overflow. 40g wasnt enough for what i wanted to put in it. Old Stats: New 40 gallon tank (first for me) 45 pounds of Petco Fiji (curing in...

    Have a new setup that has been running for 2 weeks now. I had the classic dust storm when I added the sand. I have been running filter socks and the water is clear but the glass and Koralias are always getting covered with dust. I clean them off and then it resettles again. Is this common to...
