    I have a problem with this hair algae that is growing on all surfaces and especially on the base rock where there is high current. I thought the stuff would grow were there was a lack of current. The tank is 3 months old and the water parameters are great. Ammonia-0 Nitrites-0 Nitrates-0...

    Will astrea snails slow or prevent the growth of coralline on the glass in a new tank?

    title says it all! I got a 12 pack sps from seacrop and they are great... however two are sadly not doing well and while I'm hoping for a recovery I am not sure it's gonna happen. Anyway I see my peppermint commonly on these two corals and I can't tell if the shrimp is there because the corals...

    into the world of salt. I'm not sure I could ever bring myself to having a full-fledged big reef tank, but I have been thinking about one of those nifty 24-gallon nano cubes. I'm just starting to do some research and learning what I need to know about salt, so I apologize in advance if my...

    Hi all, For the past couple of weeks I've been trying to fix a problem with my 15H. The water is a brown/tea color. The water is messed up enough I can't see through the tank, which is only 10" front to back. A little background. The tank was started in November. It's a 15H with 20ish lbs...

    I saw this posted in the PNWMAS forum: http://www.ultimatereef.net/forums/index.php?showtopic=31613&st=0 It is 19 pages long, but worth going thru. The delivery pics on page 9 are worth checking out for sure.

    I have a Red Japenese Pistol shrimp with a Pink Spotted Watchman Goby in one of my reef tanks. I also have (had) a large Tomato Clown and a large Pink Skunk in the same tank. Believe it or not they have all gotten along very well until now. My clown up and disappeared and i cannot find him...

    I am trying to get a yellow watchman goby out of my tank and I may as well be trying to touch my nose with my elbow. Have any of you ever 'fished in your tank'? He will come out just long enough to grab a shrimp off the end of my pipet so I figured I would use one of those tiny trout fishing...

    I have a problem with fish dissappearing overnight. In most cases it is over the first night the fish are added to the tank but they are sometimes in there for 2-3 days. The fish that vanish the fastest are always the bottom dwelling fish. Recently a yellow watchman goby and then a spotted...

    What would be some good corals to start out with. I just set up my 75 gallon and once I get it cycled I would like to add a couple corals. Keep in mind that the inhabitants will be a 3" picasso trigger for sure, and I was looking into getting a flame hawkfish, a 6 line wrasse and a yellow...

    Hi All, I recently managed to exterminate all the wee beasties in my tank by accidentally introducing an inordinate amount of calcium for my corals. Sooo... what's my reaction to my loss? I've decided I need a bigger tank :-) I decided to start with a 29 gallon reef (on the small side I know)...

    I just got my 75 gallon setup last weekend and aquascaped with base rock yesterday. My question is if I used too much aragonite for the bottom. I got (2 )45 lb. bags of the CaribSea seafloor, and all in all I put in about 70 lbs. After aquascaping I noticed that my original 2" bed ended up...
