Does anyone out there have any good ideas or methods how to trim back or kill the zoas without taking the rock out, or hurting...

    I have a large tank with a crushed coral substrate. I am now hearing that it was not a good idea to go that direction for a reef and fish tank. I have had advice saying to take out the crushed coral and put in sand. The tank has been going great for about 8 months and I do not want to break...

    Ok. I am an idiot... I have a 2 week old 75 g salt fowlr tank. I cycled with live sand and cycled live rock from a pet shop. My levels on everything were good this weekend so I added 2 clownfish and 3 red leg crabs (I know probably too soon). 1 clown died the next day but honestly it looked very...
