Hi everyone :wavey:
I'm setting up a 12g nano reef tank and I had a question (big surprise huh :))
anywhooo,, my question is about cycling the tank, is there a guide out there that could tell me the rules of this procedure?
I want to do everything very slowly and take my time with this...
i have a star polyp rock and was thinking since they are suposed to spread fast would it be possible to glue pieces on the plastic back wall of my biocube and have them grow to cover the wall? ow will they only matt onto rocks?
OK, I'm a little late in the game to be staring a tank thread, but here goes. I'll go ahead and post some pics from the beginning up until today. I think my little tank has come a long way in a year and a half!!
Here was my tank when it was FOWLR back almost 2 years ago:
I am planning on ordering one or two ric's from www.coralfanatics.com and I'm wondering if anyone around here would like to make it a group by to save on shipping. It says 2 day shipping is $25 but I'd rather have overnight and I'm sure it will be somewhere around $50 so if anyone wants to join...
I know its not the best picture, but all I could do while its still in the bag. It is a spider like thing and moves very slow. I have not seen one of these before. Is it a good or bad thing before I put the polyp rock in the tank, should I remove him? Moves slow.
Hello everybody. I am new to your forum and found it while searching for information about majano anemones. I hear they are quite a pest. I am new to marine/reef tanks and am learning via the crash course. lol
I am getting my tank set up and noticed my first living "thing" in the tank. I have...
Well after taking down my 75 gallon and 29 gallon biocube in Chicago, and trying to deal with my severe grief and loss issues, I decided to do what any reefer would do and set up a 12 gallon aquapod!!!
Cynthia and I are in it to win it with our 28 gallon bowfront. Our goal is a very simple easy to maintain tank that we can easily move with happy tankmates.
We plan to do this with easy to take care of fish, inverts and corals backed up by minor mathematical, engineering and veterinary...
Well I have an 80 gallon reef and all its coral seems to be doing really well exept for my Polyps. I was told that it could be because they are being exposed to way to much light but i only have my lights on for 8 hours and everything else looks great. Anyone else got any ideas?
I just purchased these little beauties:
10 polyp colony rock of beautiful orange Ricordia florida that look exactly like these:
a 5 polyp rock of blue Ricordia florida that look like this(except a few have pink mouths):
and this guy:
these will all be going into my new NC6 along with these...
Good morning, everyone! Coffee is on and smelling good.
I've never started the weekend thread, so if another mod wants to change the title, s'ok by me :)
I'm off to Columbia (SC) for The Walk For Life (breast cancer walk). You all have a great day. I'll see you later.
I got a new T-5 light system and the timer on it malfunctioned and caused a overflow of algae. I was away and my polyps got covered and haven't opened for 3+ days. Looking for a way to get the polyps to open back up. Help is greatly appreciated
I recently, about 6 weeks ago, purchased this 90gal show tank, aprox 125 + live rock, assorted mushrooms, soft corals and this really large anenome that reportly live in tank for past 4 years with his sidekick clown fish.
able to move with min distress, tank looked good.
It was sold with...
How come they are so much money?
I'd like to get some but I can't see spending $3.-$15. A pulp for something that will get lost in my tank.
Aren't they just a fill? Something to take up space?
