    I've noticed lately my tank has a greenish hue to it, not from the light but it looked like it was in the water column. Today while cleaning out my sump i saw the weirdest thing, it looked like my scolly had glowing green smoke coming from it! Kindve like how smoke comes off a cigarette lightly...

    Hey guys, it's me again I've now had a completely green tank for 6-7 weeks and nothing I've tried seems to help. At this point I'm considering giving my anemones back as they are both really bleached and I think my green bubble tip might be too far gone. Of all things this started after I...

    Hello, I've had my 55 gallon set up for about 5 months now and until this month had been using tap water. Last month I got my RO/DI unit and have since done 4 water changes and 8 freshwater top offs. Since getting the RO/DI I have added a neon green bubble tip anemone, which will later be moved...

    Alrighty folks. On my 55 gallon I've got a problem. My water is green. And not even a nice green...an ugly, foggy, pond scum green. I'm not sure what the deal is. We've taken it completely down to nothing and retried. The sand we took out and put in another tank, that tank is still perfectly...

    Hey guys, I have a 125 gallon with a 30 gallon sump reef tank. The tank is around 3 months old, I set it up the middle of may. For filtration I run a sock filter and then an AquaC ev 240 with a living fuge. The Protein skimmer probably pulls out 1/4 to 1/2 a cup of dark green skimmate a day...

    2nd day after cleaning my tank and my water is really cloudy and green. I put some algae-fix in it. and just very frustrated right now. I know its the diatoms floating but you would think my filter would be cleaning it out since I put new filters in it today. My filter pushes 100 g an hr. My...

    My tank has been running fine...... until now. I came in from work today to find my tank covered in a green film of algae, and a thick film across the top of my tank. I have added no new chemicals, and my skimmer is working fine. In fact, the cup was almost full to the top when I got home...
