    Berghia Nudibanch

    They only eat aptasia and I looked into breeding them which seems relatively easy- a couple of 10 gal tanks- seems like it could be a good business for someone who has a local demand

    Rock Flower Anemone

    I bought one for my sexy shrimp and placed it on the substrate in the middle of my 13g, about 4 inches from the Kenya tree in the corner that the 3 sexy shrimp made their home. This morning I noticed that the anemone has moved about 2 inches to the left, pushing frags out of it's way. I thought...

    75G Stand- advice needed

    I picked up a free 75g tank, stand and hood- although it looks to be a stand and canopy made for the tank ( the trim on the tank matches the finish ), and it obviously was strong enough, I'm not sure if I should be so confident- most of the stand is laminate, the support for the tank looks a bit...

    Fluconazole/ Reef Flux for bryopsis/ hair algae

    Has anyone used this for Bryopsis and hair algae- it's normal use is to treat fungal problems. I've read that it will kill bryopsis and hair algae- not a long term control, but a good place to start while getting your parameters under control

    Fish Habits

    We all spend a lot of time enjoying/ watching out tanks, the fish have habits and routines. It isn't until it's broken that I notice sometimes. I had a yellow coris wrasse that got up and went to sleep the same time every day- one day it seemed like it went to 'bed' early- didn't think much...

    Combining a 30g and a 40g

    I have a 75 g I want to get up and running. My original plan was to just move the stock from the 30l and give the tank away along with stand and hood. I have 3 other tanks- the 40b being one of them.4 tanks are just too much for me to handle, so I'm thinking about combining the stock from the 30...

I also get hair in the sand, I've been removing it- things seem to be...

    Right .... Wrong...

    " Right Place, Wrong Time"- a Dr John song comes to mind. Started right from the beginning for me- a lfs recommended a neon dotty and a Springer damsel for my new 13g. I've made a bunch of mistakes since then- a 6 line wrasse in the same tank for bristle worm control, trying to get 2 small...

    In tank sumps/ AIO's

    I got back into reefing while recovering from covid when I saw I could have a reef tank with corals. Did some research and bought an AIO 13g- now I have 4 tanks, all are AIO that I built using the same principal of the 13g- 3 chamber on one end, overflow, middle and return- been thinking about...

    Acrylic 'Glass' Cleaning

    Having a hard time finding something that will clean the acrylic and not scratch it- inside or out. I'm wondering if a magnetic cleaner with a non scratch pad ( like one you use in the kitchen ) on both inside and outside would work
