    So, I have a 75 gallon reef. All that is in the tank right now is a melanurus wrasse. The tank is a mixed reef mostly with Euphyllia but there are a few softies and an acro. My LFS has had a Golden angel for close to year now. It is eating all prepared foods, is very active and healthy. The...

    Hello, I have a Sailfin Tang who has come down with a nasty case of the Ich. He's currently in a 20g hospital tank, however I am afraid that he has also infected the display tank. I bought some Kordon Ich Attach and would like to use some of it in the DT to be sure nothing else gets infected...

    ok... probably a silly question... but the specific gravity of my tank is 1.027ish (swing arm hydrometer) I know they are inaccurate but its all I have atm... would it be safe to do a 5g water change with water that is a few points lower? 46 gal tank and stock is shrimp, hermits, few snails, and...

    I've had my tank cycling for almost 2 weeks now, and as such, some water's evaporated and it should probably be topped up. When I bought the tank, the LFS told me that they sell RODI water that's already mixed to the right salinity, and it seemed much easier to buy it from them than to mix my...

    The other day I was in a rush to mix up some saltwater for a water change and I ended up dumping a bunch of salt into the water all at once which apparently (from what I have :read: about the subject on this forum and some others) caused the calcium in the water to precipitate and cover the...

    I need information of safe materials to build a fish guard. I have two clowns in a Biocube 14gal and one has jumped into the cover over the bioballs. He's done it twice today so I grabbed some aluminum foil making into a taller divider. Will this cause any ill effects? Poisoning the water? How...

    Just got a hammer coral (my first LPS!). I'm acclimating it now, but have discovered a little hitchhiker that scurried off of the coral. He's really tiny (1cm at most), and I don't know if my hermit crabs would even let him grow up in my tank. Several questions: a) What is it? b) I've always...

    Ok, so I'm thinking about making a biopellet reactor using a plastic coke bottle. My problem is that when I search if this is safe, half the people say that food grade plastic is safe and the other half say no... It need a conclusive answer so I can get this thing going and I am hoping that you...

    My sea urchin was dropping some white/brownish balls on the sand. What would it be? Eggs or waste?

    Is this sea urchin reef safe? If so what kind of urchin is it? I also saw it dropping tiny brownish/white pellets. There are about 100 of them in the sand. What are they?
