    Hello, I'm moving tomorrow and I have a 45-50 gallon reef tank. I have a two inch sand bed. The tank is two years old, should I change my sand? Can I use 50 % of my water in my tank to keep for the new house? Should I keep more water than that? I don't want to spark a cycle. I planned on doing a...

    The other day my shrimp died out of the blue it seemed. A few days have gone by and my mandarin isn't looking so hot. The rest of the fish are fine though which is why I'm confused. I checked the water parameters and everything appears to be on point. At least what I'm able to test. Salinity...

    Hey Guys, I got a test kit that tests Calcium, KH/Alkalinity, and Magnesium.. I also have Nitrate. My question is, Do I also need to get a test kit that tests PH/Alkalinity? I'm finding it hard to figure out exactly what I need to test for? Thanks everyone.

    I am wanting to watch my calcium, alkalinity, and magnesium in my tank. Is the Red Sea Pro test kit better than buying Salifert individual test kits? Which of these test kits is easier to test with? Which one is better? How long does it take to test for each of these? Help me please!

    I am wanting to check the calcium, alkalinity, and magnesium in my tank. Ive been doing research and seen Red Sea offers a test kit. Is that a good/accurate test kit? Would it be better to get individual test kits from another brand?

    Howdy Folks, I'm in the market for a new RO/DI system. I'm in Canada, and it seems all the good RO/DI folks want to charge an arm-and-a-leg to ship the system to Canada. BUT! I found a Canadian dealer, who is offering a sort of neat 'build-your-own' system. Basically, just a customizable RO/DI...

    I have a 40 gallon breeder tank with no fish except a cleaner shrimp and a small brain coral that came in on my live rock. I will add clown fish in about a month. I am just curious what is a good protein skimmer? I need a hang on skimmer because I do not have a sump. I would prefer a smaller...

    So I read that GFO was originally invented to remove contaminants from tap water. It is now being used in Reef aquariums to remove phosphates but is it even necesary if you use RO/DI water? We shouldn't have a need for it using RO/DI water should we? Wouldn't it only be beneficial to those...
