  1. The THINK Tank
    My first post to the forums. I’m no expert, quite the opposite. I’m looking for some sound advice, and I’ve seen a lot of it here. Data: 32-gallon BioCube, 7 months old. Good flow, good LEDs. Ammonia, Nitrites and Nitrates at zero, PH at 8.2. Tank is 4-weeks fallow. Feeding ‘Coral Frenzy’, spot...

    Hi Rochester area reefers, I am going to take an extended break from reef-keeping. I have a healthy 75G environment with a mix of SPS, LPS, and softies, two mated clowns, flame anglefish, large pajama cardinal, yellow tang, purple dotty-back, cleaner shrimp, large sea star, and various cleanup...

    I was wondering if LPS need a skimmer. Also, can soft corals and LPS be in the same tank without fighting?

    Hi all, I have sps and lps in my tank. (Duncan, monitporas, acans, bubble coral, torch, mushrooms, brain coral, birds nest, candy canes, green star polyps, acroporas, psammocora, etc.) Other than the duncan and the torch that I can feed whenever, the rest never seem to have any polyp...
  5. Tank Specs
    I upgraded from 30g Cheap Tank to a 40g breeder. normally I would upgrade unless it was much larger but I found such an awesome deal for this new set up and it greatly reduces maintenance, looks so much nicer, the tank is easier to maneuver through, and I have some equipment I am going to sell...

    Hello, I just got a new frogspawn yesterday but the coral looks not good. I am pretty sure one head is dead but not sure other heads. Is that okay? Thank you and have a great day.

    As a beginner, I'm constantly blown away by the beauty of many tanks I see online, especially on Instagram, and one thing I noticed is that their tanks are crammed up with LPS, SPS and some soft corals. I was under the impression that you can't place aggressive corals next to other corals. Could...

    So I primarily want to have easy, beginner types of coral in my tank. Things like Frogspawn, Zooas, Mushrooms, etc. I have a 93 gallon cube, with a Reefbreeders photon LED lighting. I can't seem to get any growth on my zoa frags or any other "easy" coral. What should I be checking on?
