    Hey Y'all! So I finished my DIY ATO system before the weekend, took some tweaking to get it setup, but I got it working great. It cycles on and off fairly often (I only used one float switch), so I will eventually move the return for the ATO to my overflow box, so that it won't cycle as much...

    What is the highest safe temperature for a reef tank? Right now I have FOWLR but I plan on adding coral when my tank gets older. I live in SW Florida and yesterday it was in the mid 80's. I don't have a chiller and my tank and the water temp got up to 83 degrees. Last night a cold front came...

    I have a 55 gallon reef tank mix of SPS and LPS and we are having our windows replaced in a few weeks. The work is supposed to take a day but temperatures in my area have been hitting low to mid 90s off and on. Unfortunately, the scheduling of work is out of my control. Everything I've heard...

    I am about to set up a 90 gallon 36*24*24 reef tank with lps and soft corals. The plan is to run a 24inch long ballast of T5s. I was wondering of anyone with a deeper tank has experienced cooler waters towards the bottom or if it all stays pretty much the same? For example, the top is 82 and the...

    Hello everyone! I reached into my tank today to feed my fish some mysis, and it seemed unusually warm. Also, my anemone and zoa's were closed up which is definitely unusual for my tank. So I looked at my heater's digital reading (it's a 200 watt Via Aqua Titanium Heater) and it read 46 degrees...

    Hey everyone. So I'm back and just set up a 75 gallon tank. I purchased apx 80lbs of LR from an established tank about 2 weeks ago. My tank has been cycling and as of last night I was at: Ammonia-0 , Nitrites- 0 , Nitrates- btw 5-10. I also experienced a decent brush of brown algae while cycling...

    So as my aquarium hits 140 days old today, I had some small green hair algae a few days ago and now some I would consider a minor invasion. I've been fishless for almost a week now and was feeding every other day. Nitrates are 20-40 and phosphate is still 0.25 or lower. It seems this is...

    Im setting up a 2.5 gallon reef. I have sand and live rock in it so far. It's only been running for 3 weeks. My question is the temperature fluctuates from 72 at night to almost 78 in the day with the lights on. I do not have a heater in. Is this too much of a temperature swing for coral?

    Probably missed a discussion on this but... I just started a Coralife Biocube 29 gallon and with the heater off it seems to sit at about 76, but with the heater on, set at 75, it rises to 80+. I'm using a Coralife digital thermometer to measure the temp. I've read the ideal temp is 76-83 so...

    We are having a major cold spell here in CA and the temp in my tank has dropped to 70 degrees (was set to 78)! I have turned the heater way up, but after 24 hours, it's still at 70. Should I add a second heater? Are some heaters better at maintaining the temp than others? Last night I put a...

    I am getting concerned. My coral order was shipped out yesterday, according to tracking info at 3:30pm. It is 12:15pm my time now. The way they are packaged is in double heat sealed bags with the inside bag holding the water and coral. These bags are wrapped in newspaper in a styrofoam box...

    I did my every month and a half complete rock-work rearrangement.. Its was a week overdue since I was in North Carolina on business. Needless to say the tank was a bit dirtier than usual. So I ended up changing more water.. Well here is where it gets interesting. My RO/DI container is in the...

    I would like to spark a discussion on ideal temperature range for a reef aquarium. In particular, I am interested in hearing opinions and experiences people have had with temperatures in the 82-88 F range, as well as any justification to substantiate the seemingly accepted ideal temperature...

    Hello, I purchased a Nuvo 24G tank (all in one) as my very first saltwater attempt. I got it set up with live sand, live rock and water on Saturday but didn't get a thermometer until yesterday. It's been running between 81 and 83 since yesterday. I feel this is too warm but I don't have any...
