    Hey guys, <O:p</O:pMy new set up has a pretty big sump (55gal) and lots of room for my refugium. Currently the fuge area has a DSB, a few chunks of LR and some Cheato lit by 40w of 6500k. There are quite of few almost microscopic copepods buzzing around in there also. So what else do you...

    I'm having a bit of an algea problem. Also seems to be just this layer of junk on my live rock... I know I need more snails, so i have about 20 turbo snails for my 65g. How many should I get? Also what are the best snails that'll really do a good cleaning job? I was thinking maybe a Queen Conch...

    My 125 reef system has begun to experience excess algae growth. My live rock seems to stay pretty clear due to the (4) red mithrax crabs and yellow tang that occasionally picks. The surface of the gravel is where most of this growth is occurring. I have added (2) small queen conchs in an effort...

    Does anyone know any tank dwellers that are good at eating cyanobacteria? I am having a pretty good outbreak of red cyano right now and water changes seem not to be doing the trick. I know that this is part of the new tank period on my 180 but it is starting to get out of control. I'm not sure...

    hey all... I noticed some type of snail critter crawling on my back glass today. It's definitely not a snail that I've purchased, and I haven't added any new LR in over a year, so I was really surprised to see him. His movement is different from that of any snail I've ever seen, as he almost...

    The tank is running, rocks and heater and backup filters are going. The Sump isn't connected yet since I need to find a new pump for it. Any suggestions for a 100 gallon tank? The lighting isn't finished, still havent' decided. As it stands now it's just some simple PCs on there. And I...

    Now I hope this post comes across how I intend it because it could all go horribly wrong ;) . I love this hobby with a passion but certain aspects of it make me uneasy. I was wondering if anyone felt the same? I have enclosed a list of things that I find slightly worrying. Certain of these...

    Help please! I know this subject gets old, but I am having the battle of the century with Red Slime Algae! My LFS is puzzled and I am near a nervous breakdown! Here is the scoop... The problem started with lights (JBJ Power Compacts), bulb were not changed. I changed bulbs after noticing...

    What do you guys use to keep the sand looking nice in your nanos? I have a sand sifting starfish in my 90 that does a great job but I don't think there is enough food for one in the 12 gallon nano I just setup.
