    I'm on the look out for a pom pom crab and some clown fish for my saltwater tank and a cheap replacement light for my 80 gallon. I broke it the other day and have to find a replacement but tight on cash any leads?

    Welcome! If you are looking for cheap LEDs check out the Chinese black boxes like MarsAqua. They work good but don't have control like Kessils, AI or Radions. Or you can try and find some used lights.

    I got pods an a whole invertebrate chain hope it stays stable and I don't have to add to it. The tanks about 7 months old has gsp and it's growing on glass and a hand coral some hermit crabs and countless pods tube worms and little snails couple different types of algea and t omoro I'm going to get a bigger hob to try and make a refugium to act like a secondaries pod habitat

    guys got pods galore.. lol Relic is the friend I gave a rock of GSP I acquired from another member of the club the rock didn't make it to my tank and he got to keep it instead a few months later.. hundreds of pods took over his tank and to this day there are still new hitch hikers showing up interestingly enough at the time his tank was going for a long haul cycling there was no fish just rock sand and salt water the only thing added to the tank was the rock of GSP and it was like the "theory of an asteroid that hit earth and seeded all life" except on a much smaller scale in a 10 gallon nano tank

    Ok i guess this is my introduction !

    I am originally Maryland Born and raised and went to college here in NJ at Monmouth, I started my first saltwater tank in my junior year and while cleaning it out and starting that tank over with new sand i tipped it over and shattered it! from there it went to a 40 breeder and i have been progressing it ever since. I now work here full time in Middletown at a last minute decision job at ATT (formerly ATT Bell Labs)

    Its still a "young"tank in my book and it only houses a clown pair a tomini tank (super little one) and a firefish.

    corals are zoas, mushrooms, LPS, and GSP that is it ! as i get better with stability (need to get MAG,CALC,ALK right) I will increase the tank stocking. till then ride it slow and steady......

    thanks !

    Ive got an idea if anyone has herd of wonder shell its like jist a calcuim and vitimin "stone" usually marketed as a water conditioner and classifier is imagine it work to stabilize the calcium in a tank it's only a few bucks and u throw it in the tank it dissolves into the water I keep it in my tank with the snails it get the calcium even higher. Might be something to use in a coral tank if I was having a problem with calcium in my tank id try it

    Hi I'm Andy, I live in Maplewood NJ.

    I have a 90 gallon; LPS, Zoas, anemones, gobies, mandarins, clownfish and juveniles Tangs.

    I started this tank to enhance my patience, and because I like challenges.
    Having to find a balance between so many elements, and continuous learning is what inspired me.

    I've been contributing and asking in other forums - and I look forward to learning and contribute here.

    Have a nice rest of the week!

    Andy G.
