    It is almost time for me to replace the bulbs in my Coralife Aqualight Pro fixture. In the past I have always used Coralife bulbs as that is what the fixture originally came with. I am now wondering if it would cause any harm to my reef inhabitants if I went with a different bulb manufacturer...

    can someone explain to me what actinic light does or does it do anything other than light up the tank. How do i get the neon colors in my tank pop are there different moon lights that do that or are there different actinic lights that do that??? I know this may seem dumb but i really do not...

    Without overly stressing my tank, what's a good schedule of water changes to help bring nitrate's down? It's a 55 gallon tank, no refuge or sump. Has some zoas, a frogspawn, mushrooms, another coral I can't think of what it's called(looks like green star like grass) and my xenia, as well as the...

    OK, after the algae explosion, I stopped dosing like I was told I needed to, and got a calcium tester. . and it seems if I used the darn thing right, that I have lots of calcium(it took forever to turn the water blue). The water is out of limestone well, so that might be why.. . Anyway, I...

    Ok, the time has come and I can't hold on to these tanks I love any longer if I'm going to get moved to Canada. I'm going to start with selling the LR, then the fish and critters ('cause I can't catch them with the rock in the way and I don't have a large container to move anything into), and...

    I am wondering if it's possible to have too much air moving across my MH fixtures as to prevent them from getting up to temperature and/or PAR value. I'm running ROIII's with Reeflux DE 10k's on IceCap 250 eballasts. Recently I've been noticing some STN on some of my SPS and one of my oldest...

    Well, I think I found the culprit for the poor hammer coral, the tank got up to 86, and since I turned it down, he seems to be recovering a bit. My worry is what to do in the summer. There is no central A/C in this house, and no way to put it in(and no, a room AC would not work, you'd have to...

    I'm sorry, this question has probably been asked over and over but I haven't found what I need searching through past posts. The more I read, the more confused I get. So many choices and it seems like there isn't a general consensus on what works best. Before going out and spending money on...

    I am trying to decide which I like better...I've always run what I think are 460nm's (labeled as Actinic 03 does not actually say what nm they are) which are more blue, right? The 420nm's are more purple/pink/violet? I just added a 420nm by accident and it seems to make my corals much more...
