Used to much epoxy on first rock, Later picture shows pillar on lava rock, it will have extensions to glue corals to. It takes hours. I really like the pillars, will make 4 at a...

Looking forward to my first nano. i normally always go big, but would like to try and see if I'm skilled enough to maintain a smaller system. I'm currently curing about 30-40 pounds of live rock in a...

    I want to add some rock to my already established tank and was thinking about buying some reef saver rock from BRS. My plan was to get the rock, let is soak in freshwater overnight and then slowly add the pieces into my tank. My tank is 150 gallons so I am assuming that the damages, if any...

    So this is week 2.5 of my first SW tank. It is a 5 gal tank with HOB filter and top fin power head. Live rock and live sand installed day 1. Ammonia levels are around 0.3 ppm, nitrites are 5.0 ppm, and nitrates are 50 ppm. I think I'm on the down side of the cycle, as the ammonia has been slowly...

    So I have recently been attempting to get more coral propagation in my tank. Parameters are good.... I have been doing a bit of research, and think maybe "dirty" rock might be an issue? I have fine sand in the tank, which dusts up on the rocks pretty often. Could this detritus limit coral...

    This might be a weird question so let me know if I'm completely on the wrong track... My previous tank was from a friend and only started off with a mini cycle after relocating so I'm yet to experience a full cycle of my own. My new tank arrives in about a month and I'd like to speed things...

    Since we're on the topic of "what is this", here's something else. My rocks all have these weird tubercle things growing on them everywhere. They feel very hard but are brittle and break if you pick up the rocks. They do not move and I don't think they're alive. Why is my rock so ugly? They...

    Hey everyone, I am new to the hobby and I needed a little help with something I've noticed in my tank. For the past few days I've been noticing a buildup of what I thought was algae on my dry rock. Today I noticed it looked darker and grey. I haven't heard of any type of grey algae and it...

    I have a few questions concerning a NEW/OLD tank cycle. What's a NEW/OLD tank cycle? Something I made up to grab everybody's attention. This was a old aquarium that was established for three years until my brother let it crumble so I decided to take it. Lets discuss the details. Tank...

    I'm frustrated that my frags and corals keep getting knocked down by my hermits and snails. I am thinking of gluing them to my rock work. I found this tutorial online. "Super glue gel, I prefer Loctite brand to any others, but it must be the gel kind and have Cyanoacrylate as the active...
