    I have been using Vibrent to remove some green hair algae but it seems to be creating a red slime algae on my sand bed. Anyone know how to remove the red slime or should I stop using the Vibrent solution? Thanks

    We have had our 55 gal mixed reef aquarium up and running for almost 3 year's. We have had our ups and downs for sure. But are experiencing an all time low. 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...

    Not sure what's going on with the place, been going here for 10 years, within the last couple years, and customer service being horrible, ive decided to try other stores. Upon doing so ive relized how overpriced and customer service really lacks. I decided to take a break for awhile, and with...

    Anyone ever use this? This is probably the worst salt I've ever used. I've got really bad slime and crazy algae growth with this salt. I think switching back to Salinity after this salt is gone.

    Okay, so I have been battling red slime algae all year. Earlier this week I dumped a bunch of copepods that I ordered online into the tank. Now, the slime is substantially reduced. But not gone completely. My guess is that the pods are eating the detritus that was fueling the slime growth. I...

    My snowflake toadstool was out nice and big for the first several weeks that I had it. Now, it has not opened up in about a week and a half. It is still doing well, its polyps act like they want to come out but, they do not open up and they look just like little nubs. He grows big and small...

    Hello everyone. I noticed a small amount of whatever this is growing on a section of my LR a while back, and overtime I realized it's growing. It looks like a white mold type of fungus or something, but I'm unsure. I hope the picture shows it good enough for someone to make an ID with it. Any...

    Picked up a few CUC members the other day. Hair algae was starting to get out of control and I had started to see some bubble algae and red slime algae. I don't have the funds to pick up a complete custom clean up crew, so I tried to target some members that would at least help. Picked up 2...

    I have just started battling cyno for the first time in my 95 gallon about a month ago. The first battle I did the red slime remover treatment and it worked ok, then about a week later it set in again and fast. So I treated the red slime remover again except I added twenty four hours on to the...

    Have had my system running for about three years. Getting tired of the red slime so I did a huge water change yesterday using a different salt, Oceanic. Looks like almost everything except the fish are dead - snails, coral that I can tell, not good. Salinity is fine. Calcium fine. Do you think...
