    So I bought a couple of frags for my nano and I hate those ugly discs. Do most people remove the frag and glue it to a rock or just put the plug in and wait for the polyps to grow?

    I'm enjoying a rockets game at home by myself, so I thought I'd catch some pictures and share some growth shots. The first, and newest of the batch. This is an acro I got in a trade on December 1st of last year. It was growing in a weird shape, so I broke in it half and what you see is...

    I need some help with my HOB overflow box. I prefer for the water level to stay about two inches below that black rim around my tank. It seemed like I could do it at first, but now it seems like my water level is above the box that sits on the inside of my tank. What could be causing the water...

    Anyone here run a sump return line to a spraybar? If there is about 600-700 gph running through the sump would that be enough for a 48" long spraybar? Thanks

    I've been meaning to automate my topoff and haven't got around to it yet. What are some cheaper(but safe too) method to do this? Are float valves safe enough? How about using a AquaLifter pump(AQ20) to slowly dose top off? Currently I'm topping off manually dailay. Ideally I would fill the...

    I bought the kent marine kalkwasser mix. I got 1 gallon of ro water and added the reccommended ammount of powder. I stirred it up with a spoon. Now, do I just have to wait for that stuff to form on the bottom and then I can siphon out the clear water on top?

    Hey all! I am wanting to start doing kalk. I was wondering if the Auqa Lifter pump is a good way to get kalk into my system? I was thinking I could get a 2 gallon container with a kalk mixture, and use the aqua lifter to slowly add it as top off water. I would hook the aqua lifter up to a...
