    Just purchased a full set up 125g reef tank. Multiple corals and a few fish. I was checking today and saw a lot of small bugs in the refugium. Some of them are white....copepods??? and some red????? I am concerned about "redbugs". We don't have any Acropora, so are redbugs even a problem? What...

    I know its a quick fix but has anyone had any experience with a product like Poly Ox or similar to remove red slime algae? Is it safe, does it work well?

    I've developed an issue with my remora skimmer today, and am curious if anyone else has had a similar experience. I've been running it since Januray, and it's been working well, as far as I can tell (ie: I have to empty it once every few days...and it's usually a pretty well concentrated sample...

    This looks a little more brown than previous things I have thought were cyano. I have Red Slime remover, do you all think now is the time to use it? Should I turn of my carbon reactor if so? I just cleaned up the tank this morning before lights came on, and I took these pictures around 5PM (5...

    My tank has been established for three years in the same location. I have been in the hobby for 14 years now. I recently built a house and had to move the tank back in december. The tank was fine for about two months. But then all of a sudden the cyno whent nuts it is now covering evrything in...

    So about a month ago I upgraded from the 55 gallon to the 75 gallon. I'm currently running 4x 96W PC. I did go through a small green algea bloom a few weeks ago nothing major, I just noticed the growth on the glass a little quicker during the day. No I seem to be back to the normal...

    On ONE piece of rock. It never leaves that piece of rock, but it's also the bit that the green hairy mushroom twins are on, and they don't want to let go so I can remove the rock to scrub it properly. Is that red slime remover stuff safe for inverts, or am I doomed to having to scrape and...

    I have this rock, see... and it has a great natural outcropping of little polyps that are very pretty... problem is it has a bunch of other crap too! Dark purple sponge stuff, hair algae, 2 balls of bubble algae, red sponge stuff (don't know if it's good or not) and don't forget the gorilla crab...

    Just thought i'd let anyone fighting cyno problems to give this stuff a try. I have been battling cyno in my tank for about 4 months now since dosing interceptor in my tank for redbugs. Nothing has helped, i tried more flow, less photo period, wet skimming, dry skimming, double skimming, carbon...

    I the past I have used a combination of Activated Carbon & PolyFilters. I have been happy with this combination. It is time to reorder and I am wondering if I should stay with Activated Carbon & PolyFilters or try something else. What chemical filtration do you use?

    I have been having a lot of problems with Red Slime bacteria lately. I had my water tested, and I have little to no phosphates according to Something Fishy. They suggested adding a skimmer to my 29 GAL to help with the issue (along with the Red Slime Remover they sold me). Do you think a...

    My 6"-7" Derasa clam is not looking good, just seemed to be going downhill since last night. He is wide open, the mantle is retracted, there seems to be a new hole that was not there before, and worse of all he is not responsive (will not close if I touch him). The only thing I can think of is...

    Well, my cyano is back and it sound like with a vengeance. If anyone is going to order from MD, Dr’s F&S, or anywhere else let me know. I want to get some medicine to get this under control again. I know –Ace- said he has some for me, but I want to get enough to do two or three treatments over a...
