    Hello all!!! My other thread was called an office reef, but because of all the changes in my life it never made it to work. Now I'm starting another build which actually will make it to my new office. I was really loving all the fun Hack was having with Reef Jars, and everyone else who got...

    Hi, I just got the Reef Octopus BH-1000 and I set it up, and I have filled it with water. I filled it up to a certain point and plugged the skimmer in. I cover the air hose but the water keeps rising until it starts overflowing!!!!! I don't know what to do!! I am forced to turn the skimmer off...

    Well, not mine, but this is for anyone who has a new tank with livestock, or a QT quarantine tank with fish and they are getting ammonia or nitrite readings. This excellent post will help you keep your fish alive and allay your concerns that adding Prime (Seachems dechlorinator and nitrite...

    OK - So I'm trying not to throw in the towel - again (I quit QT for similar reasons before, but tried to fix a bunch of things this time). So things are getting really well established in my DT so I thought I would give QT a try again. I set up a 30 gallon QT over a month an a half ago with...

    If I buy an RODI system, I think Long Island Uses Chloramines, specifically suffolk county. Nobody gives me a straight answer though. I was wondering what filters I would need for it. Do I need a ChlorPlus block and Catalytic carbon for the chloramines? Just the Catalytic? Just the...
  9. The THINK Tank
    I was wondering what are pitfalls of using a product like Prime for water purification over an extended period of time? For argumentative sake, lets say for larger tanks allowing room for error. I sometimes cheat and do this for a quick top off of a couple of gallons every other week or so and...

    I use tap water. I am presently finishing up a fishless cycle. Have you used Prime in tapwater for saltwater aquariums?:doh:

    So I use a 19 gallon rubbermaid tub to do my water changes in. Two weeks ago I added the salt with RO/DI water, heated, circulated with a PH and added Prime. The next day there was a layer of what looked like dust on the top of the bucket. Kind of like small particles of what PVC pipe looks like...

    Ok I have been out of the hobby for a while so bear with my questions. Why use an RO DI, I have never even heard of one. Our fish guy had us use prime for the filling of the tank and then add tap for our top offs. Should we have been using prime every time? after our losses I just want...

    I feel like I have to post this, for the record, although there is a variable in here that could cause the wrong conclusion. I literally almost poisoned my tank today by spilling a concentrated Iodide solution (Julian Sprungs) into my 20 gal tank. I freaked, of course. I measured the iodide...
