    This tank has been running for about 5 months, but the build started last December. I've been wanting to get a thread started for a while, but finally got around to organizing the photos in an album. About me; I started out with fresh water planted tanks about 10 years ago. A year after...

    About two weeks ago i bought a frag of monti cap. When I got it home I noticed cayano on the back side of the coral. I took a tooth brush to it and got what I could off. The system it's in is rather new. My phosphate reads between .2 and .4 on the Hanna checker tested every other day. My...
  7. New to the Hobby
    I have only recently come back to saltwater. When I took a look on the Selling/Trading forums, I notice a few "getting out" posts of people who are walking away from salt. This makes me wonder just how common it is for people to "do saltwater" for years, then life becomes too busy and they have...

We have lost a total of 4 fish all within the last 3 weeks. 3 of them in the last week and a half. Not much has changed in our tank. Our...

    Set mine up... Only took 3 days :/. The light mount is pathetic. I ended up having to use an o ring instead of what they gave me and slide some tubing in between the mount and light to get it where I wanted.... Apart from that, the light is easily the best I've owned, which doesn't say much...

  16. Water Chemistry
    What are the reasons why my salinity is through the roof? I mixed up the water/salt solution exactly to the specs of the bag directions for my pico tank, and have been aerating it in my barrel. My salinity will not at all stabilize even through water changes, evaporation, topoff, and etc. My...

    I was emailing my dad, rablett, about using bio pellets on his tank and giving him a run down of the research I have done on them. He mentioned I should post it here so thats what Ill do. Might be good to have an open discussion about people's experience with pellets as they dont seem to be...
