    I'm not really sure what is happening here. I switched all of my corals in to my new 75 from my 30 almost 2 weeks ago and this started on my frogspawn yesterday. The lighting went from 2 x 65 pc's to 6 x 54 T5's, could this be from too much light? I did a search and saw that this could happen...

    ok so I believe this was the last WC I am going to have to do with straight IO. Before the water cheange my Calc. was about 450 and my alk was 9.0. Acoording to the sailfert kit calc should be around 400-420 and alk should be around 7-8. I know 450 calc is fine and is actually what most of you...

Eventually I hope to use a 50/50 mix of IO and Red Sea Pro. My calc was 520ppm now it is down to 480-470ppm. I have my alk...

I kept my SG at 1.024 so i have a calc level of 520ppm. This was checked with a api kit and verified with sailfert so i know its right. And it is the...

    I live in the North Atlantic. Newfoundland! The price of a 50gallon mix of instant ocean salt is $40.00 Has anyone ever heard of making their own salt. Not as if there isnt a bunch of that around here.
