    I've been battling this stuff for a few months now...about ready to give up. I've tried heavy mag dosing (Kent marine), adding a carbon/GFO reactor, and doing heavy water changes. It's EVERYWHERE, and I can't contain it anymore. I remove massive chunks every day. Any ideas?

    So I am cleaning the rocks some before I pump out some water when I noticed a tannish color circle with little circles almost looking like a honeycomb patch on my rock. Its smaller than a dime. Any ideas?

    So on closer inspection of my empty tank I examine it daily looking for critters.. Now 2 weeks old with live rock & sand, I have noticed a few things that seem to disappear by the next time I check. Tiny Bristle worm who wont show his face any longer... Maybe it's my eye, but I think I see...

    I have a 40 Gal. "reef" tank, it's been up and running for just over a year now. I have had a few issues (to say the least) but things are getting better. I now have a pretty good lighting system (it's equipped with one Halogen, LED nightlights and T5's) I am getting a skimmer soon (back pack...

    I have a 40 gallon reef tank, it's just over a year old and my old powerhead has just given out on me. My question for all you Saltwater smarties out there is; "what size of powerhead do I need for adequate water flow and is there a recommended brand to buy?" And on a side note, is it better...

    So I just got another 30 lbs of rock from reef cleaners and needed to add it to my already 60 lbs in the tank. I also added a rock lift and completely rearranged my last aquascape. The last one kind of had a pile in the back left corner and kind of an unnatural bridge with three pillars under...

    So I just ordered 4 of these from MarcoRocks http://www.marcorocks.com/dry-rock/key-largo-prime-cuts-by-the-pound/ But I am a little unsure of what exactly I should be expecting. Should I be expecting 4 rocks? Or 4 of the packages that are pictured? Anyone that could provide some insight it...

    I had a DSB at one point in time, now I am looking into starting over with a BB. My question is that all my rock is dead so do I have to cook it? Thanks for the help.

    No, I'm not talking about the Hulk or Yoda, I'm talking about hair algae. Ever since I have had my tank set up I have been plagued with it. The tank has been set up for 1 1/2 yrs. From basically day one, there has been hair algae. We've done everything, from pulling and pulling it, multiple...

    I will want to frag my polyps some time in the future and wanted to know how I could do it w/o cutting any rock. Can I just try to scrape them off. And what about xenia and mushrooms? Can I scrape them off too?
  16. The THINK Tank
    i would like to set some rock against the side of my tank, but i don't want to scratch the glass... is there a widely used solution for this problem? i was thinking about putting some silicone on the part of the rock that would be touching... will this kill my tank? is there a better option...

    Sorry I keep posting questions about this fish, but I want to make sure I am making it a safe environment. My question is, does this pipefish climb onto higher rocks, or do they stay lower? I really want some frogspawn and thought that if I put the frog spawn higher up in the tank, the pipefish...
