  1. General Reef Discussion
    So picked up some Raw Shrimp, and of course I know the odds of me finding any free of Sodium Triphosphate is slim to non being so far land locked. While its pretty much safe unless in extreme levels, which we really can't even come close to with a couple shrimp in a tank. I wondered how many...

    i am in the process of cycling a 29 gallon tank with 30 pounds of live rock which i purchased from a seller from ebay. The seller packaged the rock poorly and the package took 10 days to arrive because USPS had to repackage it along the way. The tank has been set up for about a week now and my...

    Ok, so I've been out of the hobby for a short bit, but am back in it now with this nifty lil' cadlights 5g aio tank. I used a two pieces of base/dead rock from my old 75g tank for aquascaping, and one 5lb bag of 'live sand'. I also took a piece of dr, smashed it into bits and put it into the...

    OK, some more ID help please. I found these unknown worms and thought they were Bristle Worms. But the consensus from the other thread is they are not not, but probably bad none the less. Possibly Euchnids Sp.?? So any help and removal idea's would be greatly appreciated. Thank-you Joe

    I woke up Sunday with my anemone stuck in my power head. I guess he decided he didnt like his home. It hadnt moved for several weeks and looked very happy. It ate raw shrimp very well. It took most of the day and a little pulling for it to release from the inlet cover. It is extended today...

    I want some opinions about this. I am cooking about 200 pounds of LR in my garage. I have been doing so for about 5 months. I thought about it last night and came to the conclusion that I might not be ready to use any of it for another 6 months to a year since I don't have my large tank yet...

    I live in Jacksonville, Florida. I have a healthy long tentacle anemone for sale or trade for community saltwater fish. I am asking 20 dollars for the anemone, I paid 40 for him at a pet store. He eats raw shrimp three times a week. Or I am willing to trade him for some gobies, clownfish...

    After about 5 weeks my tank was cyrstal clear and then it got all cloudy. Is this an amonia spike? And is it safe to add a mushroom coral to it. oh It has been about half aweek since the coudyness and now my tank is clear again.

    I am brand new to all this, so I am a little lost. But when I got my live rock I had a beautiful Condylactis Anemone tagging a long. Anyways the first couple of days he was all open and healthy looking. For the last 24 hours he is either completely inside or all shribbled looking. Is this bad...

    26 bowfront I'm slowly (stinking budget!) getting pieces together to set up my tank. Just wondering if anyone has a decent submersible heater laying around that you would be willing to part with? I have a 26g tank, so I think a 100w would work... Let me know! Thanks, Casey

    Ok...few questions before I get started. 1. What do you do about clean-up crews? Most of the fish that you would have in a FO tank eat the snails and stuff, right? 2. How much flow? I was planning on 2 Hydor 4's and my sump return (1 on each end of the tank (powered by a Mag 9.5) 3. How...

    Ok - so let me give you a rundown... First I had a green tipped BTA in my tank - he did great - got HUGE! Well - since I took that clown back to my LFS I took his home with him... I got a different anemone for my black clown and it was white - I asked then if it was bleached and they said no -...
