    Help me track down a murderer! I run a 300g total (250 display, 50g sump) mature tank (okay, several years mature, not paulb mature…) that’s primarily SPS. My corals are all in good shape, everyone’s happy, but for the life of me I can’t add in any new fish without them dying. Some context...

    I'm currently looking for a new light for my 40 gallon sps tank. The tank is coming up on a year old and I currently have a max spect razor. I just want to know what would be the absolute best light. I love LEDs and I know they aren't perfect for sps, but I kind if want a fixture that looks...

    Hi Everyone! I'm new to TRT so I thought I'd share my build out. It's a 300 gal with custom stand and canopy. I did all of the plumbing and built and/or modified all of my filtration. Here are some pix: I make my own kalk reactor: I drilled my new reef dynamic skimmer to do re-circ...

    So I think I might have made a mistake here but I would like some opinions. I purchased an RO/DI 4 stage unit. However it has not come in yet. I was trying to save some time in cycling and filled the tank with salt water, live rock and sand. So my question is is it better to drain this tank...

    Hello Everyone Old and New, I've just started a new full time job taking care of a private 2100 gallon tropical saltwater tank. I have unlimited funds at my discretion.:bigeek: There are some SPS corals and tropical fish in the tank right now, but the 85% of the rock work is empty. The...

    I'm sure this has been discussed before, but in 2hrs of searching posts I haven't found specifically what I was looking for so I'll just ask. It sucks going to the LFS and picking out amazing SPS to bring them home and have them 'change color' under my 14K DE MH. They're still very happy and...

    I am trying to decide between the octopus Dnw-200 recirc which is 8inch diameter x 30 inch tall with one needle wheel pump and the octopus ddnw-150 which is 6x24 but with 2 pumps. They are both rated the same. This will go on a 50gallon SPs tank with a 30 gallon sump. Anyone have any opinions...

    Ok I am changing my tank over to BB, SPS tank, I wanted to know since the Instant Ocean reef crystals have more calcium and minerals in them if it is going to be that much of a difference than the regular instant ocean salt. I am asking this because I do not have a calcium reactor or anything as...

    i never thought I would see this. I run a Current 150g rated recirc skimmer, 25w AquaUV, all run off a mag 500. My nitrates were always low at around 10-15 but I have offically reached 0. I double checked this with both my Salifert and API test kits. Even if its .000001 I am cool with that...
