    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?

    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 &...

    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...

    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...

    I've got a toadstool leather that has been closed for about 2 months. It is still responsive (shrinks when toutched) but has had no PE. It has done this in the past but only for a few days. Any idea on how long it can go like this without dieing?

    ok, now that the whole skimmer crisis is over it's back to looking at what else I can add to my tank. My husband really liked the anemone that he saw at the lfs, so I'm wondering if there is anything out there that: 1. looks like an anemone (wavy thick tentacles) 2. stays small (it's only a...
