    I dont get it at all, so I use both. I have decided to feed twice a week. Saturdays and Wednesdays. WHAT is the difference between phtyo and zoo plankton? Are there benefits to either? I heard that Zoo is better and everything will still eat it because of its "healthy" qualities and the fact...

    What and how often do you feed your fishes and corals. What are your opinions on products like DT, Marine Snow, cyclop eeze... I have a reef tank with hard/soft corals, SPS, anemones, clown, tangs, angels (will add some clams in a near future) and want to know what best to feed them.

    I had been having trouble with cyano but now it is pretty much gone. I have recently done a big water change (earlier this week) when I added my sump (10 gallon with fuge that I made myself). I have a bunch of nassarius snails, turbos, and blue leg hermits. I have 3 red leg hermits, 3 emerald...

    We just set up a new frag tank at the store, which is connected to the larger coral system. I have come to expect some "New Tank Syndrome", as we see a little algae growth each time we place a new tank on the system into service. This time the growth was exagerated, more than expected. A club...

    I just addes a Coral Beauty Angel Fish to my aquarium and not sure what my tang and him are doing. When I first added him it seems they would but up to each other and try to push one another. Is this a way that they fight? Is this because my tang is territorial? Just wondered. I don't want to...

    In my tank, if everything is cool, and my HOB wet/dry is doing it's job, then my skimmer shouldn't be pulling out very much at all, right? If I do something like rinse out my filter media and loosen up all the fine material then put it back in releasing a bunch of fine ground waste back into the...

    Okay. I have swallowed my pride. The water in my tank is full of little floating things. like white flecks. very small but very visible. It has been like this for pretty much ever. The corals and the fish are doing absolutely great and growing like mad. CA levels are always above 400, no...

    Howdy folks. I was just wondering what some of your thoughts on "miracle additives" are. Looking through a not-to-be-named catalog, and there's just tons of different supplements, buffers, etc. For example, the many coral boosters, coral vital, spectra vital, black powder, amino vital-...

    i wont go into full details but the other night i received an interesting email. informing me that i have limited knowledge, and i spend so much time posting, that i dont have time to read peoples advice. i posted a thread about this, but it was too confrontational, and was (understandably)...

    My false prerc has started eating the nori (garlic and/or selcon soaked) I feed my tang. Does she need any meaty foods in her diet or is it ok to just feed her nori as long as she's eating it? -John
