  1. Substrate Free Tank Husbandry (Bare bottomed)
    Does anyone who is running bb have a mandarin? I have been bb for a little over a month and still am getting used to it. I am worried that without any sand in my display or refugium that I might not have enough pods for him to eat. I don't have a ton of rock either which is great for my flow...
  2. Seahorses & Pipefish
    I orderd three seahorses and 2 pipe fish that will come in this week. I thought seahorses and pipe fish were compatible (liveaquaria and marinedepot) Can I have the pipe fish in the Reef tank? It does have about 30 turnover but there is a lot of LR and hiding places. The only problem is...
  3. Substrate Free Tank Husbandry (Bare bottomed)
    Ok, so I currently have a 29 gallon SPS dominant tank with a 2" sand bed. I am going to be upgrading to a 40 gallon very soon, and have briefly been considering BB. I love the way sand looks, and I know that many have had much better results with sand than without. For a long time, my 29 was...

    my tank has been running for 1 1/2+ years now, i have aprox. 100lbs LR. only other fish are: 2 clowns, 1 hippo tang, foxface, engineer goby, volitan lion, zebra eel. so nothing else eats pods regularly. the system is separated by 2 75g tanks (one reef and one FOWLR containing the lion and...
  6. Nano Reefs
    Im new to this. I previously had a 20 gallon freshwater, and i was looking on craigslist and I found a used 10 gallon nano reef tank. I did some research on it for a few hours, and im considering creating one. I'm only 13, so i probably wont get any of the stuff you're saying. So please try to...

    Does anyone know a cheap easy to assemble way to convert a 10 gallon tank into a refugium? Where i can get the baffles? How big of a return pump do i need? Its for a 55 gallon tank. Matt

    What is there a difference between the two? For those of us who run a sump with bio-balls how can we include some into our system to help cultivate a copepod population? Is It safe to put directly into a display tank?

    :help: Sorry about the stupid question people but Im very new to salt water and need to know if some things are really needed. I have a new 210g Mega flow tank Im putting together and was woundering about a few other pieces that Im not sure about. First this will be a reef tank with 200+ live...

  11. Reef Fish
    What can anybody tell me about these guys? Are they reef safe? Will they eat my hermit crabs or shrimp?
  12. General Reef Discussion
    That is the question...I am upgrading from a 55G with a 55G sump in my basement to a 125RR that will use the same 55G sump. I currently have a 10G area of the sump set up as a fuge. It has a DSB, a few pieces of extra LR and some Cheato. I like the Cheato for the simple fact that I have a...

    I caught a bunch of pods munching on my zoa's last night, the zoa's have been disappearing one by one for some time now, but i couldn't figure out why. I didn't know pods did that?? have you heard of that??

    Guess I was in a yellow mood today.:rolleyes:
  15. Reef Fish
    Here's my new mandarin. I've waited months after creation of a 'fuge, and now since I can see a preponderance of pods, I thought the time was right. I went to my LFS and looked over the 3 they had, (not including the cigar-sized fat boys in the coral tank which aren't for sale). I observed...

    Glad that he is eating frozen. I have a lot of pods for him as well.
  17. Seahorses & Pipefish
    Im starting a seahorse tank and its 129 gallons it has a filter and an ulta violet sterilizer and the proper heaters. I might be getting coral and seagrass. I just need to know if there is anything else i might need? Also do seahorses get along with crabs? and if they do will they mate with...
  18. nano build off 2008
    I know,.. I know. I said I wasn't getting involved, but then I got this idea :doh: The situation is that I have a 10G that's in my wall and has been empty since June when I gave away all the plants that were in it. I will enter if: 1. I have everything I need laying around. 2. I can design...
  19. Substrate Free Tank Husbandry (Bare bottomed)
    I was wondering as I'm setting up my first BB tank (pics posted under "miniwhinnys 20 x 360" in the 2008 nano-reef build off section of TRT) Have any of you longer timers found a difference in pod populations in BB tanks vs. sand bottom tanks? Thanks.
