    Hi, so yesterday I added 10#s of live sand to the base sand and a few small pieces of live rock to my 220g which had nothing but sand and dry rock and salt water in it. Im wondering how often I need to feed the tank and how much (no fish in it yet)? (Im going to buy 100#s of dry rock and create...
  2. Seahorses & Pipefish
    Hello, I just missed my dwarf seahorses transfering their eggs! But the male definitely has a bunch in his pouch, so many there was a string of them hanging out and he is buldging! How long will it be before he gives birth? Also is there any particular time of day that seahorses prefer to give...

    This isn't a question about how many hours you light your tank, but more a curiosity of your preferences for when the lights come on and go off. Nothing serious, just curious about how people like their lights running. :) I've had my "dawn" lights to come on at 7:30am, daylight lights at...
  4. Lighting
    I just got this fixture a few days ago and realized that the actinic and 10k bulb go on at the same time. Will that be ok? I thought the actinic should go on at least an hour before the 10k. I'm looking to keep softies and maybe some lps.

    How long should I keep my skimmer on for? Right now I have it on 24/7 unless I am cleaning it. Is this bad?

    Generally speaking, if one light setup doesn't have as much par as another setup... would just having it run for a longer time have the same result on corals? For any math people: Does 5 hours of 6 par = 6 hours of 5 par? Thanks guys

    Hi all, I recently purchased some Ocean Nutrition Coral Food. Has anyone here used this product? Is there a "best" time of day to feed? Before or after the lights come on/go off? Maybe while they're on?
  9. LPS Coral Forum
    Ok so you need to wait 6-12 months for anemones. What about corals? Ps, what's the difference between Sps and Lps other then species and appearance?

    Ok, I gotta ask... was there a Sept meeting planned? I know a "movie night" was proposed but never materialized/finalized. Are we still expecting a club meeting this month?

    Hello TRT communitty! I just joined TRT this last week, but I have visited many times before. I have a quandary: My wife insists we are going to move after our little girl gets out of 5th grade (it works out because she will be going to a new school anyway) and she is in 2nd grade now. I have a...
  12. The THINK Tank
    I got to thinking today, I think many people are not drip acclimating properly for a couple of reasons I'll soon explain. IMHO, too much emphasis is put on how many hours to drip acclimate for. Sure I hear 1 hour, 2 hours, 1 hour per 0.001SG of difference, etc, but... the drip speed is what...

    Hi TRT, I've been reading forum posts for the last 4 months and am about to fill my brand new 75 gal tank (with a 30 gal sump). My question is: There is a guy who is getting out of the hobby that I can get rock and sand from. When I add the rock and sand to my "new" water, about how long will...
