    Hi, It's been awhile but my tanks still going strong. I have apastia on my clean water flow knob thing going into the tank. I noticed one on there before and I wiped it off. Now there's five. So right now I'm soaking the part in vinegar and did a water change. Will that kill it? Do I have to...

    Seen this topic on other forums but it hasn't been brought up in a few years. WHAT IS THE BIOCUBE MADE OUT OF?!?!?!?!?! I see that is says "glass" on the box and website. Even called Biocube and they said it was glass. This thing isn't glass though. No Way. Glass does not scratch this...

    Hi everyone! It's been quite the build for me, it's now going on 6 months & I'm ready for water!! Last week I filled the system with fresh water & white vinegar. My thought was that I would clear all the pipe & pumps of anything that's no good. What I noticed is that after a week of the...

    I stumbled across this looking at past posts about kalk dosing. Has anyone tried this? Does it work? Is there a down side? Kinda long but interesting.. When Calcium Hydroxide solution (Kalkwasser) is slowly dripped into your aquarium, it captures free Carbon Dioxide present in the tank water...

    Hey guys and girls, I have heard you can clean your power heads with vinegar, but i was wondering what kind and what ratio? Do you think it would be ok to use red wine vinegar or apple cider vinegr? (as that is all i have in my cupboard as of right now) Would i mix 1:1? Thanks as always!

    My PH has been holding wayyy to high for my zoanthids and feather dusters. It holds at around 8.5-8.7. My alkalinity stays right about 8.5-9.5 so no problem there. All my other levels are stable and I have never missed a 1 week water change of 15 %. The tank is new and only been set up for...

    Any thoughts? I will probably start doing this unless someone can convince me otherwise. 1 tsp kalk + 15ml vinegar + 1qt water http://www.reefscapes.net/articles/breefcase/kalkwasser.html I may go with a little less than the suggested vinegar amount. Also, I will probably wait till I get...

    So we picked up the new to us 50 g and 20g sump from lfs today. It looks fairly clean but I'm just wondering what's the best thing to do to it now? It was a reef tank set-up that the owner surrendered because the wife gave him an ultimatum. The rock that he gave the lfs did have some aptasia...

    So I just got my new (well new to me) 75 gallon tank today, I am very excited:). I will be taking some pics of the progression and posting them on here but for now I am trying to clean it up.
