    I've had my red bali star for a few weeks now, and everything seems fine, but he has these little bubbly, bally, balloony things (whatever you want to call them) on him. Around 3 of them. they're small... but what the heck is it? Is he going to be okay? The edges of his little legs are...

    So my cloudy water has not gone away and I think it might be a bloom of some sort that will work itself out. I wanted to add my 1st fish this weekend, but I'm thinking twice now b/c of this. So my question is should I hold off? The tank has been up for 4 weeks, and ammonia, nitrites, nitrates...
  3. Reef Build-Off 2007
    I think I’ll play along with the build-off as well. I have ordered a custom Oceanic tank, and while I’m currently waiting for it (and wondering if it will ever show up), I have been keeping busy with my current set-up and planning for the new one. If you look at my few other posts on this board...

    I have a saltwater master liquid test kit and the PH is very difficult to read. The nitrite, nitrate and ammonia are not that difficult to read but the PH doesn't look like it really matches any of the colors. It appears a light purple in color. Any suggestions?

    I am taking down my 9 month old tank and have the following live rock, fish, and inverts for sale. I don't have the time or money I thought I did when I started the tank and would rather know it is being enjoyed than neglected. I will have equipment to sell later but I need to figure out what...

    So I have this rock that was purchased last month. It had some Green Zoanthids and some buttons on it as well as what looked to be a Green Star Polyp colony, but since has been determined NOT to be that. Anyway, the buttons are doing fine, the undetermined green polyps are doing fine, but the...
