  1. The THINK Tank
    So my uncle set up a tank that uses heating coils placed under the substrate to create convection currents that move through the gravel. In his system this is to provide nutrients to the roots of plants but I was thinking about what effect this might have if used in conjunction with a DSB or...

    I am setting up a new 125 tall and plan to go with a plenum and 4" bed of carib sea. Have had great luck with the handy reef in the past, but everyone here where I now live either have bare bottom or berlin systems and they all say that is it better for the long haul. Has anyone used the...

    I called it an HRDSB to distinguish it from an RDSB. HRDSB is a Hikk Remote Deep Sand Bed. What I am referring to is a 5G bucket setup such as this one: Anybody used one or know anybody who has used one to...

    Well, I know it is partially my fault, but green hair algae has all but ruined my love of this hobby. My tank has looked like an Irish Chubaka since late November. I had the entire tank disassembled in late January when it was moved from Woodbury to Cottage Grove and the entire tank scrubbed and...

    Who here thinks it would be totally crazy to use and under gravel filter for a high nuetrient system? I know, I know, nitrates/trite right?? Well a healthy water change regiment should take care of that. Wouldn't ya think? Running reversable powerheads on the uplift tubes would provide ample...

    If you saw my posts recently in the BB / Substrate-free forum, then you know we re-did our entire 120-gal reef and now have no plenum, no sand, and 1/2" starboard instead. We love it!! Here's the tank, taken a couple days ago, 1 week post-setup, 50% same water: Supports in the back Fish...
  18. "Soft" corals
    LFS called this coral a flowerpot. Is it? I have been looking online and the pics show something else. Long "stemmed" corals. And... are there any special needs here? It was doing really well for a few months... but seems to be degrading. : (
