  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...
  2. Want to Buy
    Good Morning Fellow Reefers, After months of struggles it's finally time to start restocking our 125 gallon that crashed nearly a year ago when a return pump went bad and shocked the entire system causing almost complete loss of everything (one lone clownfish survived). With the...
  3. Want to Buy
    I’ve started a 90 gallon reef tank. I’ve got 60 of live rock with 100lbs of dry rock and probably 30 lbs of rubble rock in the skimmer chamber. The rubble rock and all the dry rock has been soaking in Aquavitra seed. I went to the LFS and put two snowflake clown in and they are happy and eating...

    All of my corals are super healthy and are cared for with the very best practices such as quarantine new additions, best in class water parameters, optimal flow and light, and profound nutrition. I took 5 packs of the following colonies that I have aqua cultured from frags. I cannot substitute...

    I am newly trying to revitalize my ten year old aquarium. I picked up a GBTA a month and a half ago. It's been very pale and shrinking. Thought it was a gonner. Today I came home and it spilt four times! All in their glory!

    So I had purchased 2 Picasso clowns for my new tank. They both died with about 24 hours and I narrowed it down to improper acclimation time. Figured it was about an hour but if I’m being honest with myself it was more like 1/2 an hour bc I was anxious and excited. bad choice on my part. I went...

    I've got 3 really good looking frags of Cornbreads Flaming Phoenix montipora. They mostly fill a 1" frag plug. Pic does an OK job of showing the color but they are muted for sure. Looks really amazing in person. Shown under Kessil A360W lights and photo is taken with gel filter to remove...

This year..GHA explosion. I scrub the rocks and glass and it just comes back even worse. I hd cruched coral sub, i...
  10. Lighting, Filtration and Other Equipment
    I have a pair of TaoTronics dimmable/programmable LED’s over my 75 mixed reef tank. I currently have the blues set no higher than 50% and the whites at 40% for about 2 hours around noon til 2, then they dim down by the 1/2 hour. My question is should I increase the blues for better coral growth...
  11. Seahorses & Pipefish
    I am giving away Erectus seahorses. These are 7-9 months old and eating frozen mysis. There is a limit of two per person to avoid pet shops making money off of me and you must pick them up. They are free so I will not deliver. You must have a cycled 30 gallon saltwater tank or they...
  12. Lighting, Filtration and Other Equipment
    (Very) long story short...I've got a 60 cube that's been up for around a year that I've had a ton of problems with. Algae problems, fish problems, coral problems, coralline problems, the list goes on. My water parameters are spot on, my lights and flow are finally at an appropriate level for my...

    How often should I do water changes in a reef tank
  14. SPS Keepers
    That you can have a successful SPS tank with 2004 technology. Who needs to spend a ton when the essentials are quality lighting, rock, Flow, and Saltwater. I want to make the claim that I tried it all and still end up back at the basics. Discussion?
  15. Lighting, Filtration and Other Equipment
    I'm starting to wonder if my lighting is not up to snuff to support Corals. My water parameters are spot on and yet, the Zoas I just put in there last week are not fully opening. They are somewhat, but not to the extent they were that I saw them at the LFS. I'm contemplating adding an additional...
  16. Softies & LPS
    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

    Well I'm finally back at it again. My tank crashed and I lost everything[emoji20]. So she's back up and running with solid parameters. And a new top for my ato so my toddler isn't slipping things into it and causing it to crash again[emoji12]. I'll be watching the forums for fish and small frags...
  18. Water Chemistry
    Just picked up a 120 (48x24x24) and will be upgrading from a 29 biocube. I'm hoping to get your thoughts on if this will work and prevent the 120 going through a cycle. I've cycled a few tanks, but never transferred from one to another. Thanks in advance for the help! 1. Add 75lbs of new marco...

    Heard my a powerhead making noise last night and awoke to find anemone tentacles in it and no sign of the rest of him. He was about 8" round. I'm hoping he's just injured and hiding behind a rock. Hopeful thinking? Maybe it matters where he was caught? I'm also worried the crabs and shrimp are...

    I'm going to be adding live rock from my buddies sump this weekend to my tank. He has a well established 180 gal that's been running for probably a decade. If I put them into my tank, would I see any spikes in Nitrate, Nitrite, Ammonia? I would assume it wouldn't cause any levels to spike but I...
