    Hey guys! So, I have had my 100 gal with 2 48" Current USA Orbit Marine LED's for about 18 months. I was a typical newbie back then and was using treated tap water, of course I have an RO/DI now.... but needless to say I didn't have the most stable environment. Now after I have learned so much...

    Hello, Can someone tell me is any of this bad on my live rock? The green mushroom looking things and the orange growth on the live rock? Does any of these require special lighting, as I do not have any. Thanks so much.

    How do you get Coraline Algae to cover everything? I had a 20 gallon set up for 4 months and didn't get any Coraline at all. I have heard about people getting Coraline everywhere in 3 months. I now have a 55 set up now and would like to see some Coraline Algae over everything. Would it help if I...

    Ok i ordered 20lbs for $70 on ebay. In the pic it shows examples of nice coraline growth encrusted rock from fiji. So i thought it was gonna be a good deal. I received the rock today - no growth, no coraline - it looks like wash up rock from Florida. They are located in Tampa Bay. I would have...

    The big brown truck delivered my "TAT" (Therme Algae Terminator) yesterday afternoon. This thing is amazing on how well it removes even the thickest, hardest, multi-layered dark pink/purple coralline algae you've ever seen on a tank. The algae on the front & sides of my tank was so thick that...

    I've got a really pretty 3 head frag of blastomussa merletti that I've had for a few weeks and I've got something off to the side of it that I can't figure out. The shape is like a monti cap, but obviously I don't have a sps growing on the side of my lps :p It's a lot smaller than the polyps...

    For the first time EVER in my 1.5 years of having my tank I see Pink/Purple Coralline algae growing on my acrylic and the powerheads. What was once a green, sludgy, phosphate and nitrate ridden Cesspool when I bought it from a guy now seems to actually be able to grow Corraline. It's been...

    What does everyone keep their ALK and calcium levels at? What is a good range to shoot for.

    Hi people. sorry if my questions seem so naive, but someone gave me his "live rocks" which he imported from fiji, and gave me hastey instructions on how to set up my tank, and left me on my own. I always dreamed of owning a marine aquarium, but i never dreamed that it will be this complicated...

    This is my 180 gal tank. It's been established for over 3 years now and I still have plenty of room left for more stuff, but just don't know what I want to put in it next, rock, anenomes or hard/soft corals. Here is a list of the bio-load: Vlamingi Tang Liutenant Tang Sailfin Tang Royal Blue...

    Hi, My tank has been set up for almost 6 months now and instead of purple coralline algae, my live rock is turing bright yellow. Can anyone give me any insight as to what might be wrong? Thanks

    Over the last month or so I have noticed that my candy canes havn't been doing so good. From the looks of it, it seems that something is eating away at the stalks. Some of them are almost completely eaten through and only holding on by a string. I can get a pic if that helps. But what the...
