    New tank...I'll post my parameters in my tank. I'm not using my light at the moment since it is a fairly new tank and I don't want a total outbreak... What I am questioning is the general fuzziness. I do believe my levels in my tank are stable enough to sustain a small addition in livestock so...

    I have a species of something growing in my tank. I have never seen this before in my tank. Does anyone have an idea of what this is, and if I should get rid of it?

    Hello, my tank is a little over 3 months old now and I have a couple different kinds of algae. The purple circular ones I'm hoping is coraline and not red cyano or anything bad. I have no idea what the yellow one is, but I think its the same as the green one and I don't think it's good either...

    I've got this white stuff growing on a few rocks. Any ideas what it may be? LFS guy says its from bad source water/old r.o. filters. Replacement filters come tomorrow. ID is critical to fighting it. Tank is a year and a half old. Thanks!!

    I had about 10 aiptasia growing in my tank. I took care of about half of them using concentrated kalkwasser mix with a syringe into their "mouth" and it seems to be working. I stopped at half because I noticed that they spit it back up and it's going into the water. I know with kalk mix you're...

    Every morning when the light comes on, these are all over the glass. I cannot seem to figure out what they are. They are also growing all over my live rock and they wave in the current somewhat like leaves. When they are on the glass they almost look like tiny tiny snails that haven't formed...
