    All of a sudden my long nose hawkfish is acting weird. Afraid he is dying. Had 2 other fish die but think it was because of the store I bought them from. The hawkfish I have had for awhile. Water parameters are fine. Tank is established 30 gallon with coral. He isn't moving much and when he does...

It ran a while and crashed, leaving only my little clownfish and 3 corals (Brain, Hammer and Torch) alive. They were in a ten gallon...

    Newbie with a substrate question. Will a white substrate of an established tank remain white, or do you have to occasionally stir the sand bed?

    Ok so I am very new at this so it might be a stupid question. I bought an already established 29 gallon biocube. It already has live rock and sand, corals, inverts, and fish. I sold two of the corals out if it to make room for some new stuff. The corals I removed were attached to about 3 lbs of...

    I've read the previous comment(s) about adding live sand to an established reef tank but nothing regarding solutions. However, I made the mistake of doing this but only about 2 lbs of the LS. I noticed an immediate change is parameters. In my 55 gal. I've managed to get the pH back to about 8.2...

    I believe my sand bed is not adequate as it is only about a 1/2 deep. I was hoping to add some more sand. My tank has been established for approximately 7 months. I don't want to wreck the work that has already been established. Any thoughts? Equipment: 30 Gallon Long, 30 lbs of live rock, 25...

    thanks ahead of time for the help. i have a tank that's about 2 years old and recently i've had an outbreak of algae and masive amouts of cyanobacteria growth, taking over even the glass walls massive. I have a 3.5 inch crushed aragonite sand bed. I'm wondering if it could be something with the...

    After my pump comes in and I get a sump added I am going to replace my sand bed. Well, I have to take all the sand and rock out of the DT to drill it, So it seems like as good a time as any to replace the majority of the sand. After this is done I think I may try a quadricolor. The new sand...
