    So I've been looking into getting a diamond goby or a couple sand sifting starfish, or possibly 15 nerite snails, or fighting tiger conches. New tank will enjoy cycling soon and I want to keep my sweet sand bed white. Let me know what you guys think?

    He everyone! I’m new not only to this forum and to corals keeping as well. I’d like to buy the corals for my future 90 gal tank. Surely, I want to have nice white sand. Is it real to keep it always white? How do you do that? thanks

    Got this stuff on only (1) rock,..in my DT. Also had a bit in my Fuge'...mostly on the "eggcrate" holding up my "cheato". I scrubbed it off of that in my kitchen sink...easily.

    Somehow during a water change my return pump ended up dry apparently. Got the new water in and gravity should have taken it right to the pump, but the pump wasn't working.
