    stonies and softies in tank together--worried? I'm wondering how concerned verteran aquarists are about having some softies in with mostly large and small polyp stony corals. Is this really a big concern? I have, in a 26 gallon tank with all normal parameters: Some very large frogspawns 1...

    Ok, so I'm going to be buying some corals and I'm not 100% sure they will go together. I'm only planning on getting a few of them. I am just wondering which ones I should worry about going at it and killing each other, or if I could keep them together just at other ends of the tank? Anyway...

    Many of us consider mixed biotopes in closed systems to be problematic when we speak of stony corals mixed with octocorals, or some types of macroalgae, but even though it has been considered in the past, I have not really seen much in the way of articles regarding allelopathy between stony...

    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...

    The photo is old - from Feb. But this birdnest was doing awesome - growing at a pretty good rate, colorful, etc. Last night, I noticed the lower branch was bone white. Didn't know it it bleached or RTN'd. This morning it looked the same, but tonight, over half was white with it losing tissue...

    In the past I've had better growth in zoos, palys and 'shrooms in a "dirtier" tank. The burning question is: (Btw, we need a drum roll smiley.) How "dirty" a water can Rics, Blue Ridge, and Candy Canes take? I may try adding a Frogspawn or Hammer also so I'd appreciate any input on these as...

    My kh levels are now at 4 meq/L and my calcium reads 500 ppm. My Temperature is 78, my PH is 8.2 and my salinity is 1.026. This makes no sense to me as I thought a 4 meq/L reading shouldn't make it possible for the calcium to be so high. I have verified the reading with 2 different test...
