    I don't want to go into much detail but I am going through a messy separation. I have a 220 setup and plenty of misc tanks and equipment that need a new home. Unfortunately I was not able to care for the livestock for some time so they will need continued expert care and rehabilitation. I am not...

    Today, on the advice of GTi, I visited the Ypsilanti branch of the Fish Doctors chain. This was my first visit to any of their shops, and I'm glad I made the trip! I didn't bother with anything but saltwater, although they have a nice selection of other things. I simply didn't have the...

My question is will adding new crushed coral to a system do the same thing. Will rinsing new substrate in tap water adding it to an existing aquarium...

    Hi all, I just want to know from you all expert reefers from Michigan that how is the performance of RO/DO units in winter. I have heard that low temp water tends to slow down the process a lot. Here in winter water temp gets close to 40. So do you guys preheat the water before it is fed to the...
  13. Fish Disease Treatment
    About $1000.00. A grand. That is the retail amount I just watched die because of one bad choice. That potters angel was so pretty, and if I didn't put him in the reef two weeks ago after only three weeks of quarantine he would have died of starvation. The others might be alive though. Forward...

    Hi there, I have this type of 'anemone' for almost two years (was one, and then split to two), and they look like anemone, move like anemone, but I have been told they were not when I brought them. And I dont remember the information any more. I am adding lots of LPS coral right now, I just...

    Looking for some insight on whether to switch over from instant ocean to reef crystals. I keep softies and lps and I'm thinking it might reduce some of the other dosing work to switch. Thoughts?

    Hello everyone! I am looking to get into saltwater. Have done freshwater (cichlids mostly) for years. Got out a few years ago, sold everything. Now I have the itch again for the hobby. I have been reading a lot, asking questions, etc. to pick up anything and everything I can. Pretty...

    Just put in a new maxima clam, about 5-6inch and concerned it is gaping and only one side of the mantle is extending over the shell edge. Should I be concerned in the first few hours or give it a little time before trying to move it? I have it under a Kessil 350w LED, about 12 inches away. Any...
