    In preparation for going reef I have ditched the bioballs for more LR, pitched the CC substrate for carbonate-based sand; I've built a decent 'fuge with chaeto using a 10g tank, and upgraded my protein skimmer. For the first time in a true 20 years, I seem to have algae growth under control...

    So I woke up yesterday morning and went downstairs @5:30 for work. I saw my 35g softie tank in the cornner and immediatly realized I had left the RO/DI running in it ALL NIGHT LONG (from 8:00 to 5:30) I was toping off and got distracted by my son and forgot about it. My wife kept telling me to...

    We recently upgraded our Aquapod to a 90 gallon reef. We were VERY successful in transferring everything over. Wanting color, I made the mistake of purchasing a Lemon Angel. I'm not sure on the name, but it is yellow with blue eyes. It is really beautiful, but is eating EVERYTHING alive! We...

    Found one of these buggers in my sunpolyp colony growing in a dead tube skeleton. Can I just hacksaw the dead coral w/the aiptasia in it? How long is ok to have the coral out of water?

    Is sun coral and dendros arent the same are they? I know they look generaly the same, but I think there different. Especially when you can buy a colony of 20 polyps of sun coral for about $40 and one polyp of dendro is usualy around $40 or so.
