  3. Coral Propagation and Aquaculture
    I've got a blue chalice and it is getting huge. It's about the diameter of a large dinner plate and about 6 inches high. It is beginning to swirl upon itself, which is kind of cool. It will soon begin to interact with other corals nearby and I feel like I should avoid that if possible. My...

  7. Anemones & Clownfish
    Alright, so I knew I'd have to end up posting this some day. I've had an RBTA anenome in my tank for about a month, and it's been healthy, but active and moving everywhere. I've turned my two Koralia's on and off as it nears them, saving him plenty of times which hasn't been a big deal and...

    After collecting a few frags for a new rimless build I am working on, I find red bugs in the 55g QT. Since I also have a peppermint shrimp and a few snails in the QT and because I want to double the dosage, I want to pull the frags to another tank for tx. Not planning to treat the 55g QT as it...

  10. Do It Yourself
    Ok. First off, I know how to build one of these devices. I've done the research, and am a very capable fabricator. I do, however, have some questions to anyone who uses/has used one of the wave makers, or surge devices, whatever term you prefer. I am currently buying parts and pieces for a 120g...

  13. Do It Yourself
    Last fall I had a bad cyno outbreak. It was all over the DT and killing my chaeto in the sump. Nitrates were on the rise and I hate doing water changes. Then I came across this thread on another forum. I read all 70 (at the time) pages of this thread before I started. The designs have...
  14. SPS Keepers
    I have been trying to find possible biocontrol agents for Acropora red bugs. One motivating factor for this is that some populations of Acropora red bugs are fairly resistant to the active ingredient in Interceptor tablets. Also, several aquarists mentioned that red bugs do not have any effect...
  15. Reef Discussion
    As many of you have seen on this forum and others, red turf algae is a relatively new addition and has proved to be very difficult to eradicate. Typical algae solutions do not work...there was a thread on Reef Central and Eric Borneman has been trying to get rid of it for a long time, and even...
