  1. Want to Buy
    Who's got an overabundance of GSP or Xenia that needs a new home? I just need a small chunk of each. We can't seem to keep either alive - yet we have mushrooms, zoas, candy canes, hammers, frogs, sinularia all doing well. They just seem to melt after a few months in the tank. Parameters...

    So every time I purchase snails, it seems that a good 60% of them die within the first day. It does not matter how long or what method I use to acclimate them. I run activated carbon to remove toxins, there is no stray current in my tank, medication free currently, nitrates are undetectable with...

    Hello all, I have a 14 biocube and I want to add a sump to my biocube so I can add a protein skimmer. I know people have said that a skimmer is not needed but after months and months of trying to lower my nitrates I really want to add something to help with nutrient export. I have tried...

    I got a green brain last week and now I'm noticing small spots of white around the edges of the heads I'm not sure if it's dying or if this is normal? It's has not set out any feeder tentacles either since I've had it. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    My tank has been up and running for about 9 weeks now. I believe the tank has cycled, as my Ammonia and Nitrite are 0ppm and my nitrates have been testing 0-5ppm range for the past few weeks. I did notice a bit of a diatom bloom yesterday, but that may have been brought on by me (added new LED...

    Curious to see if anyone is running a bio pellet reactor and what their experience is using one. I've been seeing these popping up in more aquariums and I'd like to know if anyone is seeing results. Also have heard running the reactor outlet directly to your skimmer is a must. Anyone doing that...

    Hey everyone, Curious about my Bubble Tip Anemone. I currently have 3 anemone in my tank, all from the same original anemone. One of them has been closed up the last 2 days, and moving around the tank. It has been expelling some waste, but I have never seen it last as long as this time. It has...

    My 125g tank has been up for almost a year and I just recently got a salifert iodine test kit. It shows I have zero. I use Salinity salt btw. I have a large amount of red dragons breath in my sump and I'm wondering if it's consuming all my iodine. My corals look "ok" but I'm not getting a lot of...

    I thought I read something about a caulerpa die off due to going asexual or something and releasing some sort of toxin to the tank. I cant seem to find anything pertaining to this. I am having some issues with my SPS while others are doing great and my parameters are fine. Moving corals around...
