  1. Other Invertebrates
    Today when I added live rock I noticed multiple what look like very tiny turbo snails. I recently added two turbos is it possible that I bought them knocked up or they mated in my tank. After doing some research I saw articles talking about pyramid snails but these look nothing like that pyramid...
  2. Lighting, Filtration and Other Equipment
    Yes you read that right, I've been thinking about selling my mp40. It works ok on my 65 but I feel if I had 2 powerheads(one on each end) on a wave maker it would actually work better. I've been looking into the jbj oceanstream kit. 2 1600gph powerheads with a wavemaker. This would equal what...

    I have been on a mission to minimize PH Swings in both of my tanks(180 & 125). I am dosing Kalk and increased evaporation which keeps it between 8.1 and 8.4. Like everyone I am seeing huge swings when the lights go off. I do reverse lighting in the refugium and have a small aquatinic light on...

    I just emptied a 55 gallon long, SeaClear acrylic aquarium. :( It was time to cut the electric bill a little. It is free for the taking, it has coraline algae on all four sides, and it bows out a little lengthwise, it does not leak, stand included. It would be a good sump, but not a main...

    Hello Reefers, Recently, I used Tetramin flakes as a substitute for my normal flake, Omega One. It wasn't by choice. My mom was out running some errands so I asked her to pick up my normal flakes, Omega One, and she came back with Tetramin Rich Mix Flakes. I began using the Tetramin and had...
  10. Reef Discussion
    Friends of our came over this past weekend and their son was absolutely amazed by the hermit crabs and frogspawn. Now I agree, they're cool, but he looked past every piece of high-end colorful coral and focused on the tiny crabs... Anyone else had non-reefers notice the normal, plain jane stuff...

  14. Hitchhikers and "ID Please"
    Just wanted to ID this coral. Got it from gablett, so he is interested in knowing too. Originally it is from preuss sold as hammer, but the heads in hammer I usually see are very defined hammer heads that almost seem to interlock each other in their shape. Yeah I know its bleached, vodka dosing...

    Is there anyone out there who could talk me through the setup to allow internet access to my RKE data? I can access it through my wireless home network and my iPhone if I'm within reach of my home network. But I have not been able to figure out the port forwarding or dynamic DNS settings...
  19. Reef Fish
    I purchased an awesome clown tang early last week, and I can't seem to get his to eat. He typically swims in circles around my tank non-stop all day. However, he seems to be getting weaker, and his swimming motion is getting more erratic. His stomach look slightly concave, as if he's no...
