    Ok, Just picked up some trochus snails. I wondered if anyone has any recommendations for a dip that is "snail safe". After a few members getting pests from snails a while back, I want to take zero chances. I do have some tropic marin pro coral cure, but I wonder how safe it is on inverts.

    I wrote in last week about my brain not doing so well. I think I may have bought it already bleached. I placed it under a ledge and have been trying to get it to eat. I noticed some white under it. I guess its melting. Does anyone think it has a chance at this point. Any more suggestions.

    I don't know if what I have is welcome or not, but that same prolific uber frag I got that came with the flatworms is also host to some sort of spider/crabby thing. I had the lights out and turned them on and caught the barest glimpse of something that shape run for cover inside a hole in the...

    am i suppose to use drip acclimation for sps and lps the same way i do fish? I know I am for anemones but a little confused about those. and if I am, do I do it after I glue them on the rock?

    is it Ok to do a freshwater dip on shrooms and Rics? I am redoing my daughters tank and her corals are infested with flat worms. I know I can dip the Zoas, Leathers and clove polyps ok but I am concerned about the shrooms and especially the rics? What is the best way to disinfect them?
  8. General Reef Discussion
    any personal experiences or advise would be great. I plan on a hour drip acclimation, middle of my tank, medium flow, and 1 maybe 2 times a week feed with zoo/phyto

    Well, I've had a "BB" tank for 2 years now, but it's only in the past month that I actually had a real BB tank. That is because (i feel) I had too much rock, poor flow patterns, and def. not enough fish, or skimming. Here was my tank at it's...

    I have a monti cap that I think has some type of parisite. Parts of the corals are bleached and I see smal wormlike critters on it. I think they might be nudibranches. . Would it be safe for the coral to just dip it in some ro water to remove the parasite? Do I have to add anything to it or...

    Well since my new venture into acros I have both the pests:cry: I had someone from the club come over because I thought I seen some bite marks and since I'm pretty new to acros I wanted someone to take a look. Well after pulling pieces out and letting them dry out a bit it becomes pretty easy to...

    So I'm reading that for corals the drip method is a must...which pretty much requires a refractometer. I'm trying to order everything I need in advance to avoid the "I can't wait, I'll just pay what the LFS is asking" this refractometer good enough...

    I havent had these guys before. I took this pic late lst night Who here has??? I got this coral this weekend....i DID dip it in tmpcc for ten-15 minutes before adding to my tank. In searching around it pretty much seems like they are on a level with AEFW's as far as how difficult they are to...

    Just got in two monti's off ebay, my little QT has no lights at this time. I don't want to put anything bad into my tank, but don't want to put them in a qt with no light either. It is a 3 gal eclipse and the ballast crapped out. would cost more to order the pieces than to replace it. Back...
