    Ok, I'm taking a poll About RTN (rapid tissue necrosis). I recently read that there is some evidence that RTN can be linked to mixed reef tanks (SPS and softies), but that skimming and carbon may help reduce the risk of RTN. So I'm asking those who may have experianced RTN questions about it.

    For those of you that have hard corals, you know that keeping the alkalinity, calcium, and magnessium levels up in your tanks can become an issue and get very costly, especially with a larger tank. In the past, the only options were aquarium additives or a kalk reactor. The additive costs add...
