  1. Tank Specs
    Greetings fellow The Reef Tank-ers, I figured that a tank profile would make good use of my first post here on TRT. This tank was started in July of 2006 and is my first "real" attempt at keeping a successful reef aquarium (well.. there was a 10 gallon before this one, but it was hardly a "reef...

    I don't have it but I am thinking of getting it as part of my maintaince routine. The directions say to only use it 4 days and then remove it. Over treating is not recommended. My question is why? Why would you not want to continue to remove impurities?

    OK so here is the deal I have various sps that I was given in July of this year that have been growing well and showing great color and pe ect. up until about a week or so ago. I noticed the color going MUCH lighter. I have seen RTN - boy that happens quick, and i am hoping that this is not...

  5. The THINK Tank
    This is not too far fetched, think this one over for a moment...we LABEL things such as Flatworms,Sponges,FireWorms, & others as pests, but look at this point of view for a moment...the Coral Reefs are dieing, 45% is already gone according to the latest scans, Hospitals,Medial Research labs &...

    We have a 30-gallon Indo-Pacific reef tank that we are just getting started. The system is currently running with live rock, and I'm adjusting my params. Thinking down the road a bit, we're researching corals for this tank. We'd like to start from the bottom up, so our first question is about...
  7. General Reef Discussion
    For a bunch of reasons (some beyond my control), I am buying "cured" live rock at the LFS today. It's been in their tank for a month under halides and looks great. I will be adding it to a new 30 gallon tank that has been running with just saltwater for a week. I think I'll go about 3/4 fiji and...

    Well, I've got a very unhappy xenia, I've had it 6 months or so, and it has been doing quite well, having split twice, and growing well. around the middle of Dec. I took a piece that had detached from the main plant and moved it to my frag tank 'fuge. There it has happily started to grow. Dec...

    I just read a surprizing artical about sweeper tenticals. I had believed that they were something that was a hard coral thing, but this artical was about how some soft corals can produce sweepers as well. This might be old news, but worth the posting. I also posted in the "soft coral" section as...

    ive had a sinularia frag for a few months now and it always expanded really well, until adding a lobophylia(i think thats what it is). the last few days the sinularia seems really peeved, not opening much at all. is this probably a result of chemwar that leather corals do? i do run carbon in...

    just looking for a centerpiece for my tank. everything i have is kinda small, i want something that gets big and cool looking so that your average person("hey is that saltwater?") has something impressive to look at when they check out the tank. was thinking a red open brain or something to be...

    can someone tell me what kind of leather that is in the middle of the tank? Its the giant tan one.... Im thinking I would rather have a leather that looked like that(but not that big) instead of a carpet anemone that will eat my fish.
  15. General Reef Discussion
    I just noticed a rather large hole in the stalk of my yellow leather. It has been droopy and shedding for several days now. I pickked up the rocked that is on and flakes of tissue came off of it. Should I call it a gonner and remove it form the tank? I have never fragged anything before and...

    Has anyone else had a problem with bleaching of just a particular coral? I have several species of acropora in my tank that do great...but everytime I try and place a piece of millipora (acropora) it ends up bleaching in 3 to 4 weeks....does anybody have a clue why this happens? I do have some...

    everyone have been extremely helpful. As before you know I'm bad at keeping a good reef system. I'm starting a new "24 GALLON NANO" using my old reef water, live rock, fish etc. It has to be in the chemicals I've been told several different large reef shops. Now will see how good you really are...

It's stocked with purple shrooms, yellow polyps(don't seem happy), white featherduster, 4 snails, 4 hermits, and a bicolor blenny.
