    cloudy water

    I know there alot of different ways to cycle a new tank. But I use fresh water mollies. It takes 30 minutes to an hour to acclamate the mollies but they do better in SW then FW then. Do it before you add very much aquascape (making it easier to remove the mollies later). Also don't add much of...

    Issue with newer Aquarium

    Hiya Cameronladd fellow austinite. It took two months for my first saltwater tank to cycle just a FYI. What LFS are you using I found that river city aquatics are about the best in town (even tho they are out for the cash and will tell you any thing that you want to hear). As for snails, I buy...

    placing Live Rock

    Do you want to be able to clean the back glass? If not then put them close to it so the fish have more room in front to swim around. All in all it is your prefence. Main thing is to keep them secure as to not fall down and scratch the glass/plexiglass.

    Where to buy cope/amps

    I have had the tank set up for 3-4 months. I don't have any mandarians gobys etc. I will get a mandarian later after a year r so (or get over run from pods). The rock has been in there 1 month after I set it up. It came from a mature tank and they are coraline encrusted. Matter of fact I already...

    Can anyone identify this photo of algae

    I had a bubble alge breakout just a month ago. How I fixd it was I took evey LR piece out (as they all had it on them) and scraped it off with a flathead screwdriver and a chisel also scrub it with a brush. It seemed to work and now I have very small amouts of it.
