    Hey guys, just wondering if any of you have any experience with Polyp Lab's "Colors" product. On their website it says the product is designed for ultra low nutrient systems but it also helpsreverse bleaching by removing excess nutrients... I'm puzzled here because it is an amino acid complex...
  2. The THINK Tank
    So I was thinking it would be nice to have a list of alternative additives, what it does, and what we can use it for as a reference. I would like to start things off with a nice article I found by Randy Holmes - Homemade Two-Part Calcium And Alkalinity Additive System...

    Hey everyone, I've come seeking everyone's opinions here, as I've looked at too many charts, bulbs and websites and need my sanity restored! Basically, I'm gathering equipment for an upcoming 50 Gal tank (36 x 18 x 18 dim) build. I've decided I'm going LED/T5-HO hybrid for my lighting, but I...

    Hi, Finding it difficult to maintain my Mg in my reef tank (240L). Currently 1160. Am using seachem advantage Mg currently, and don't like it, as it doesn't seem to raise MG very much and PITA to mix (My Ca and ALK are fine, using seachem reef fusion) So looking for a liquid Mg supp to dose...

    Looking for an answer to a question about Kent Marine mineral supplements. So today I bought a bottle of Kent Marine Strontium & Molybdenum and a bottle of Coral-Vite. I am reading the bottle and noticed that the same four things that are in the bottle of S&M (LOL) are in the bottle of...

    We have a 55 gallon tank, mostly SPS and leathers, a few acros as far as corals go. Right now we feed our corals Coral Frenzy and DT's Phytoplankton(we switch it up every other day). Our acros recently started going downhill though. Our LFS reccomended Aquavitro Fuel for Reefs. Likes? Dislikes...

  10. Nano Reefs
    At my LFS, i noticed that they used multiple bottles of very specific chems. i am a beginner to the marine industry. For this reason, i thought that a simple step as to measuring and pouring would be easy. my tank is about 1 year old and my only show coral are my star polyps (6 inches) YAY!!! i...

    My friend has a huge reef tank that has over 50 different corals in it. He uses reef crystals as his mix and does a water change weekly. The only additive that he uses is calcium. I am sick of adding all the chemicals, and I often forget to add one or two. I am thinking of taking this approach...
  12. The THINK Tank
    ok! so we've got these boxes that we've filled with water, rock, sand (maybe), and a salt mix. our boxes are through the cycle...we're done testing ammonia & nitrite...maybe we've done a water change or two, but now what? let's use this thread to discuss what we should be testing for, the...

    I have a 55G, reef with SPS, soft corals and fish. I have no overflow, sump, etc that would lead anyone to think that I am a high tech reefer. Basically I have 2 filters (one of which doubles as a protein skimmer), a bunch of powerheads then the livestock. I currently add Kent Marine Tech CB...
  14. "Soft" corals
    I got some blue, green striped and brownish/green mushrooms that I got last summer. They are splitting and growing and doing all-in-all relatively well. I have noticed that some of the new shrooms do not quite have the color brightness and extremes as the originals. Is my lighting the...
