    Ive got southdown in my tank and was wondering if I should try to look into getting something to stir up my sb. I used to have a larger colony of amphipods when I had the larger grained sand/crushed coral but i dont see as much anymore. I dont think they can sift through the fine stuff either so...

    Here's my 20gal tank. It's housing a huge purple LTA and a big RBTA. It's got a little hang-on whisper filter and is normally skimmed by an AquaC Remora. However, I ran a surface skimmer on the Remora, and forgot to top it off for two days. Then, the MaxiJet 1200 ran dry... So, the pump on...

    I am so sorry to be buggin you all again, but as I build my 10 gal sump, I realized that my seaclone 100 skimmer might not fit in the sump. My question is If I leave the skimmer and emporer 330 filter hanging off the back of the 40 gal tank, and I put the heater in the sump with my aqua clear...

    Sue me! I have DSB... actually a VDSB. (And D stand for deep, not dirty). So what I'm understanding from reading tons on here is this: A DSB is for newbs who will make mistakes because a DSB will absorb things and act as a "buffer" for bad things. ie, in the short term, a DSB is good because...

    The Minnesota Aquarium Society is having a show this weekend. I just got back from setting up tanks with my kids, and the collection of tanks set up is really impressive (there must be well over 100 tanks set up, and there is some aquarium-related artwork and photos on display as well). There...

    Ive been reading a lot about refugiums while researches methods of lowering nitrates. I always seem to have a little. I do not have room in to add a refugium, and was wondering if just keeping a small amount of macro algae in the main tank for decoration will aid in nitrate reduction. I am...

    I mean, its all set....aged water, been cycled, substrate is ready, its got some sandbugs, a little algae... its bigger drawback is that its still got the little 10-15 watt NO tube for light... i was going to tear it down and put it away, but now that its empty of fish, its begging to be...

    I am looking into setting up a 180 gallon reef in my basement over the next few months. Can anyone make a recommendation towards the type of live rock and an online vender to purchase from.

    I have a scooter blennie and, as you probable know, it eats pods. What are "pods"? What do they do? and Why is having my blennie eating them so bad?

    Anyone know about the colorful mini-clams that are found on the FL gulf? Are they good for the sand bed? I noticed that Indo Pacific Sea Farms is selling what they call "mini-clams" for the sandbed that sound exactly like the ones I just found on my trip to naples.....are these good for my...
