    I bought a sea apple about three months ago and at the store it was closed up. When I got it home I thought maybe it was just ticked off or something because the tenticles looked like crap. Well I just came to accept that maybe thats just how this one was supposed to look. It stayed that way for...
  3. General Reef Discussion
    Curious? Well, it all started when I posted a picture of my smaller Gold Bar Maroon and the anemone that he hosts with. A few people asked about it and the closest ID we could come up with was for a Hell Fire anemone. I have had some others say it could not be that because a clown cannot...

    Without getting into the specifics of different grades of carbon ( I know it's hard to resist) can anyone point me in the direction of a thread or furnish me with the knowledge of what it ACTUALLY removes ?

  16. General Reef Discussion
    Well, I finally did it. I yanked my sand bed. When I did it the sand smelled and some of it was black, but I did turn over the sand and went through it and found NO life. No worms or anything visible. I used starboard on the bottom and moved my powerheads to the bottom of the tank...

Is it impossible to add Southdown to a filled tank? I've heard all of the horror stories about it not settling.

  20. The Think Tank Must Reads.
    Some funny misconceptions I've read about DSB's #1 That a lot of thought and "scientific" research went into developing DSB filtration. #2 That DSB's are mimicking nature. #3 That reefs rely on sand beds and grass beds for filtration. #4 That reefs rely primarily on bacterial filtration. #5...
