    Just curious how long some of you have been researching reef tanks online. I started after getting very bad info from a certain LFS over 10 years ago. I couldn't understand why I was having so many problems with my tank. I was told by the LFS that I could keep a clam under regular flourescent...

    What size of wet/dry filter with skimmer should you have for a 125gal tank? Is bigger better? Can you have too much flow?

    Ok- I have a dirty little secret- I still have a sump chamber full of biballs. I want to remove them primeraly for more space in the sump to put my skimmer. However, I have had tanks rash in the past from removing bioballs. Whats a good way of removing them? What do I depend on for...

    I went to the LFS today and told him I had red Cynao On my sand. He tried to sell me some super expensive "cynao be gone crap" which I wouldnt buy. I told him that I was told cynao is caused by Bad water source, infrequent water changes, and lack of flow. He says that all of that is wrong and...

    HI I am about to set up my 150 gallon tank. I have been out of the hobby for about 10 years. The question is has there been many changes in the hobby? Currently I have a wet/dry filter with bio-balls, under gravel filter with power heads and the remains of a denitrification filter. I also have...

    Ok, so I know most of you here probably hate bioballs, and I understand why. But I have a spot in my nano, that is hidden, and i would like to put bioballs to help filtration, as I cant afford LR rubble right now. If I got the bioballs, and distributed them into 2 or 3 mesh bags, and placed them...
