    Hello! I have a 45 gallon brackish water tank with only two figure eight puffers and a ceverum currently inhabiting the space. I recently lost a ruby faced scat and when I tested the water realized my nitrates were very high while all other tests were normal. I proceeded to do a couple water...

    Ok looking to create good flow and keep from crap building up in my tank. I have a 55 gallon tank with about 60 lbs of liverock. I have no sump or refuge just a skimmer hanging off the back. I am thinking about buying 2 Koralia #2s. I want to put one on each side of the tank. Maybe one on front...

    This all started with a 72 gal fish only bow front. Then we saw all the reef tanks set up at the fish stores and HAD to have one of those too. The first one was a 13 gal with PC's which was quickly followed by a 42 with T5's, which still wasn't big enough so we converted that one into a 180 with...

    Good morning everyone! So in my LFS's new anemone tank - they have this nem. Can anyone give an ID? LFS owner really doesn't even know - but thinks it's some type of rock anemone... another thought is a beaded anemeone (Heteractis aurora). What do you think?

I have kept high quality koi in very large ponts for the last 6 years. Ive always wanted a salt tank but never new much about them. A family member...

    I've had a blue linkia star for over a year in my tank. He's always done real well since I figured out to really maintain the salinity closely. That was the #1 issue. All of his little white spots went away and he was real healthy. He's always been shy and stayed in the rocks when the lights...
  13. The Think Tank Must Reads.
    I just spent three hours reading through the DSB myth thread and decided in all fairness to put up a pro DSB thread. Although I have not been in the hobby as long as many on here have. I research constantly for ways to improve the quality of life for the animals I choose to own. This is in no...

    :confused: Does anyone have any experience with the Eheim Pro 3 2080 or the Eheim Pro 3e 2078? Would these kick butt for a 90 gallon saltwater tank? If not can you recommend one that will be easy to use, extremely quiet and a monster cleaner that will stand the test of time? Also, if I do a 90...
