    I need help from more "experienced" hobbyist to assist me in getting a game plan together on solving my hair algae problem. My signature line should have a link to my tank setup, lighting, critters, and filtration information. I've spent a lot of time reading, changing water (RO/DI), turning out...

    hi, i'm just starting out my reef again after a few year break, i'm planing on using the Berlin method but have a couple of questions. does it HAVE to be live rock? cant i use ocean rock and wait for it to colonize with bacteria? or mix it with live rock? second question is what about...

    How many members use frag disks or plugs? Which plugs/disks have you tried. Lastly, do you have or plan to have a small prop tank or area in your tank to grow out frags? Personally, I have tried the boston aquafarms plugs and disks, and the ceramic plugs. They both have worked well for me...

    I noticed that one of my turbo snails hasn't moved for 3 days in a cave, pulled it out and sure enough he was dead? how long do they usually live? anything that might cause one to die? the Three other ones are cruising around like normal?

    and I sent it to the corner...or my fiji damsel did. She just sits at the back top corner of my tank all day long and every now and then my damsel darts up and takes a nip at her fin. I rearranged my liverock, but she still hasn't moved and the damsel still acts territorial. Is there anything...

    I got a beautiful little red mushroom from Chazz yesterday, took it home, glued it to a cement disk, watched it be pretty, went to bed... when I woke up in the morning it was gone. :bawling: :mad: I got a mushroom from another club member a few weeks ago and that one disappeared too. :confused...

    I've seen two major schools of thought on cleanup crews, more specifically snail population in people's tanks. Some people have loads of snails (say 1-5 snails per gallon) while others recommend keeping much smaller numbers (say 1 snail per 1-5 gallons. The people who keep high populations seem...

    I am going to be yanking my DSB next week (Finally). I ordered starboard from a local plastic shop. Any pics of tanks with starboard? Early stages and matured tanks with the starboard? Also, anything else besides laying the starboard on the bottom I should be concerned about?

    I was looking at some cleaners over at reeftopia. I see that they sell blue-legged hermits in micro, small, and med. sizes. Has anyone ordered these??? Which ones do I want??

    wow talk about alliteration :p I got my full clean up crew today which is a few scarlet and blue hermits, cerith and narc snails, a queen conch and some shrimp. I had a few of each but this is the full load and now there will be 100 critters in a 90g tank. I also have two little serpent...

    Some may remember my mysterious trouble with snails... Well, tonight Sue gave me 3 nice turbos. I acclimated them slowly and put them in the tank. Happened to be watching Futurama when the lights in the tank went out (I'm normally up in bed by this time). Wandered over a few minutes later to...

    I've got about 10-12 black-and-white legged hermit crabs in my 135 display tank for cleanup. They seem to do a fine job of sweeping up anything left on the substrate. Unfortunately, they also seem to be pretty proficient at eating my snails. Case in point, I introduced 12 new nassarius snails...

    Well since I'm waiting to acquire and set up my new 90 gal tank I went ahead and set up my old 30 gal. I cleaned up all my old live rock (now base rock) and I'm looking for a couple pieces of nice live rock to seed it all and a cup of live sand or so to jumpstart the sand bed. Whats the best...

    I am just about to buy a cleanup crew to add to my new reef tank. In the past I have had a selection of red-leg and blue-leg hermits and some turbo snails. Now I see loads of different types of crabs and snails available and am wondering which I should buy and what advantage do they have over...

    Ah yes one of my usual stupid questions. I am getting a bit peeved at my tank in that I'm getting real good layers of algae on the side and back glass, as well as grape calurpa (evil!) starting to spread across my rocks, with a touch of aptasia mixed in for flavor. I have time this weekend so...
