    :idea: OK, I have been thinking, there are a lot of "hard rules" against some decent reefing methods. In particular, canister filters, bioballs, purple up, crushed coral, undergravel filter and the like. I would like to do a "mythbuster" experiment, and maybe set up a small tank to do as many...

    Hi all!!! I'm sure that this question has been posted dozens of times and I have actually read a few posts about undergravel filters. However, I think that my question is a little different. Can I keep using my undergravel filter or just disconnect it without tearing it out and have a...

    Hi guys (and girls), I need some advice on my new orange tube anemone. I brought him home last night and buried his foot in the sand. Today it's back out of the sand and laying on it's side. Tentacles are inflated some, but mostly laying on the sand, not up and flowing. I find conflicting...

    I just spent three hours reading through the DSB myth thread and decided in all fairness to put up a pro DSB thread. Although I have not been in the hobby as long as many on here have. I research constantly for ways to improve the quality of life for the animals I choose to own. This is in no...
