    Anyone tried this it claims less water changes and such, i believe maybe water changes is the only way to reduce nitrates...

    My 48" has been set up since May 05. Still got some nuisance algae on the rock and at the back of the tank. It seems the snails are not working hard enough. Can't make up my mind as to employ a sea hare or a foxface to do the job. Read some materials about their horrible behaviour like when...

    I just recieved my 220# of fiji LR, I think it was uncured now that I look at it (it's just teeming with macro algaes and such) anyways my tank was partially cycled when I put it in so how long do y'all figure it'll take for the tank to cycle enough to put in cleanup crew and fish and such?

    I want to set up a tank for non-photosynthetic corals. Anybody done this? Any foreseeable problems?

    I got a Powder Brown last week and he has been eating "some" cyclopeze. Today i went to Mr.S's and got some macro algaes. I got kinda a leafy stuff and some bristly bunchy stuff. I was wondering what everyone likes to feed there tangs. Later Ryan

    While reading the most recent issue of TFH Magazine, I came upon a couple of interesting tidbits in the saltwater sections. Namely, a mated pair of scarlet cleaner shrimp can produce millions of larvae on a regular basis to contribute to feeding your tank. Also, oysters produce an amazing amount...

    I am seting up a refugium. Anyone know a good local source for Chaetomorpha and Gracilaria? Copepods? Thanks

    It's been a while since I posted about my phosban experiments. Since many other people had said the iron oxide worked well for them I introduced a much smaller portion of phosban to my reactor about 2 months ago. Just recently removed it for a couple of reasons. 1. My clams are not looking...

    Hello, currently I have a 30g reef tank with just an Emperor 280 and an AquaC Remora skimmer. In around six months, I am planning on completely upgrading to a 75g with a sump/refugium. As I was thinking, it came to me that I might as well get the sump set up on my 30g now. First, I was...

    I was thinking of doing something new at this month's meeting. As many of you are probably painfully aware, very few of us have significant others that appreciate as much as we do our zeal for spending money on the hobby! I thought it might be nice for some folks to make a few bucks to buy...

    Does anyone know of a good local place where captive bread seahorses are sold--or a good online store? I am planning a seahorse tank, and I want to start off with a pair of CB H.Erectus for many reasons (hardiness, the eat frozen food, etc). Thanks, Kayla

    During my recent travels to all of the fish stores. And I don't mean this as a commercial post. I picked up a naso tang that was close to adult size (I think) or at least 8 inches or so. If anyone remembers my Macro-Algae tank, I was just getting it under control and my flatworms are...

    This should be a fun one. We have done this a while ago, but I think a lot has changed since the last time we talked about these. What are these used for? Do they do any good? What is one? How do you plumb one? Wow the list goes on. :D G~

    I would like to have a meeting sometime in the real near future with volunteers for this effort. This is the information I have so far. We have the Community Center from 8am to 5pm. So using the assumption that we can't get in until 8 am. I figure 8-9 and 4-5 is setup and teardown. So...

    I have a 75g drilled tank with a 15g sump (hopes to be a refuge someday!) and I would like to get a better skimmer for my tank. I currently have a CPR bakpak skimmer, but it doesn't seem to be getting any skimmate at all, even though I have the collection cup lower than recommended. Anyway...
