    Does everyone experience a build up of detritus on the live rock after the tank is up 5- 10 years? Am I supposed to be removing the rock and cleaning it, without removing or harming the living material on and in it? it has a layer of detritus that looks like a film of dust on furniture left in a room for years. 2 powerheads and 2 pump exits into tank, there is lots of movement? what am I missing? 72 gal/ mega flow 2 sump.

    I periodically take out a piece of rock and hose it off; the key is not to take out so much rock at one time that you upset the biological filtration cycle.

    Hi guys! I am having product from holdtight to removes all salts, contaminants, flash rust. I had excellent experience with them. I would highly recommend this to anyone.
