Hello - Happy Monday!
I'm posting a bunch of update pics. Most everyone is happy - except one head of the torch coral - it closed up a bit and hasn't fully reemerged.
Yes, I still have grass, but you may notice I've taken a bunch out - so I did hear you.

I been using a Red Sea test kits, not the individaul ones but the ones with all the test in it. I had a couple leak out and so I emailed red sea about it and you can't replace just certain bottles. So only way would be to buy the complete test kit. I think its crazy. I use to use fast test nd...
I did search and read what I could but still like everyones input. I am thinking on getting the corallife super skimmer for up to 65g for 99.99 at the fish pet place or something like that. The asm g is more expensive.
What would you guys recommend?
The cost on the one I founs is 70.00...
For some reason I am having an extremely difficult time in raising my ph past 7.8 and 8.0.
I am adding seachem's liquid maine buffer but it is not going up. Any suggestions???? And if so what product works well at bringing it up and staying at around 8.3?
Thanks a mill,
Hi I was wondering, how do you lower alkalinty. My ph is about 8.0-8.1 and my alkalinty is high.
I put some liquid seachem buffer in which raises ph to 8.3 and stabilizes alkalinity. Does anyone know if this will work?
My friend and I both have a tank and we each have the same problem. Both of our calcium levels are low. Mine is reading 200 and my friends is reading 280. I don't know if it has to do with the alk at all. We both have been dripping kalk now for over a month. Our stony corals seem to be...
I tested a little bit on the ammonia side, and added a litttle Seachem Prime to the tank for the day. I plan on a 15 gal water change tonight and removing of my carbon in my phosban reactor.
But I noticed my Zoo's closed up immediately after adding Prime. My question is: anyone had any...
I just purchased an orange suncoral about 3 weeks ago. I have been feeding it about 3 to 4 times a week with krill. it was a nice bright orange when purchased. i have it in the middle of my 75 gallon at the bottom of the tank. Water parameters are up to par. Nitrates can get up to 5 on red sea...

KH: 15.5 dkh

For those of you that have hard corals, you know that keeping the alkalinity, calcium, and magnessium levels up in your tanks can become an issue and get very costly, especially with a larger tank. In the past, the only options were aquarium additives or a kalk reactor. The additive costs add...
As most of you are aware, for the past year (since moving my tank) I have been plagued with fish and invert deaths, hair algae and occasionally non-thriving corals.
I was always perplexed because I would have my water tested and pH would be 8.1-8.2, nitrate/nitrite/ammonia were 0, I was doing...
I am starting a new thread to follow along with my new 29g SW setup. I have a couple of years experience with FW tanks, but this will be my first SW tank.
After researching for the past 2 months I feel fairly confident in knowing the basics and have made friends who...
