    Greatly disappointed

    They are still in Florida but they drop-ship from California. All the photos in the EIBI section are actually pictures from Sea Dwelling Creatures. I learned this a few months ago when I posted a screen shot of a coral on facebook and asked a question about the coral. One of the replies was...

    Best macro algea to lower nitrates

    I don't know what to tell you. I am anti Caulerpa because it is invasive and can go asexual. I am pro Chaeto because it doesn't do that. I know there are a lot of other options out there. I just don't know what they are called. I used to have some pretty red leafy stuff mixed in with my...

    Good news, bad news.

    We close on our house in about 2 weeks and move in on the 1st of August. For the time being I have been purchasing random aquarium things that are on sale as I see them. So far I have purchased a 55 gallon to be set up as a Seahorse/ Pipefish tank. I also got two 40b tanks and a 20L. One of...

    converting freshwater tank to salt

    There is really only one to guarantee that and it is to buy dry rock. Unfortunately that defeats the purpose. Your best bet is to carefully chose individual pieces and look at them thoroughly. That wont guarantee anything but you can spot a lot of problems by carefully choosing what you buy...

    Barrels for mixing station.... Would YOU use these?

    Most plastic tubs are not food grade and people use them all the time. I think you will be fine. John

    Good news, bad news.

    Well we have an accepted offer on a house. We will go finish the paperwork on Monday. This is our 2nd attempt at making a deal.. The first house that we put an offer on was unrealistically countered. Both agents (ours and hers) thought that our offer was a good offer. The sellers agent...

    LED/ T-5/ MH operating cost?

    Hey everyone, Here is a question for all of the reefers here. Since I am in between tanks right now I have been thinking about how I want to set up the next one and what equipment I may want. What is your monthly operating cost for your fixture? I'm not really talking about bulb...

    Good news, bad news.

    The military has decided that it is time to move again. The bad news- I am tearing my tank down and selling everything except the lights, skimmer, pumps, and powerheads. The good news- In a few months I will probably be doing a build thread here. Right now, all of the money that I'm making...

    What kind of anemone is this?

    Yes it is a Sebae. I have one too and it is about the size of a dinner plate. I'm not sure what pink tips you are talking about. My Sebae has blue tips. John

    Help! New Sea Anemone Doesn't Look Right. With Pictures!

    That tank looks too new. What brand T5? Some are better than others. Regarding acclimation, I only temperature acclimate coral but I drip everything else. That is just my preference though. John

    Help me please!!! Anemone and clownfish crisis.

    Maybe it is a Condi but it looks just like my Sebae did when it was little. It is huge now but it still has the blue/purple-ish tips. What does the foot look like? John
