    Hey all, I thought I would revisit a popular new theory on the remote DSB in such delivery methods as a 5g bucket. I have been considering re-doing my fish room a bit to make my filtration system a bit more efficient and have considered this. Now, my water volume is almost 300g so, I am not...

    I was just wondering what everyone's opinions are on fluidized-bed filters. I am setting up a 28g jbj hqi nano and I'm going to make it a BB tank. Since I am already going to plumb in a nano chiller I was thinking of running the return from the chiller through a fluidized bed filter. Any...

    Ok so my divorce has created some cash problems that have recently been increased by the transmission starting to go bad on my car. As much as I HATE to do it I have to sell my tank for now. I have over $2400 in the tank. I am selling it for less than HALF what I have in it. $1000 OBO. If...

    When i started in this hobby I was dying with all the stuff i was told i HAD TO DO... test everything on a regular basis, fill the water every minute, watch this, add that... it is enough to make a newbie scream and run the other way... between the testing and skimming and trying to keep my...

    Hi, Been having trouble keeping sps's from burning. It was suggested that I feed more and change to dry skimming. In the process of feeding the tank more (fish) I noticed that a problem with some brown slimy type algea dissappeared, been trying to get rid of it by starving the tank, but it...

    HI I am about to set up my 150 gallon tank. I have been out of the hobby for about 10 years. The question is has there been many changes in the hobby?

Ive removed 80% of my bio balls over the last week and my nitrates are still at 40ppm. :bawling: Mybe it takes awhile for them to...
