    So many options.

    So I'm upgrading my lighting fixtures on my 100 gallon. I'm not too happy since it was less than a year ago into spent around $300 on my current one, and now it likes to flicker between moonlights and regular and dims itself and so on. Guess I didn't choose the right one. I'm not planning on...

    Ohhhh, my Lanta.

    So my darling little 3 year old dumped a damn near full package of Hikari algae pellets into my sump. By the time I found out they had been in there for awhile, but was able to get about 75% of them out. The rest disenegrated into tiny peices. My skimmer is going crazy and overflowing quickly...

    You think it could harm him? Lol.

    I know it is not advised to feed more than what my fish can consume within 3 minutes. Does the same rule apply to dogs? Lol! My awesome little English bulldog decided to jump up and grab my fish food off the counter. He ate not only an entire bag of hikari pellets, but also a bag of cobalt...

    Whcih fish best describes you?

    If you were a salt water fish, which would best describe you? I would probably be a Fox face. I get stressed out and have anxiety no matter how big or small the situation may be. I am mostly a mellow person but will use my spikes when they are needed. And I eat like a hog. ; ) What fish best...

    Nice algae.

    I've got some nice green algae growth going on. Would a lawn mower blenny take care of this? I have dozens of snails and crabs they don't touch it. Will my tank continue to produce the algae for a blenny to survive? My phosphates are kinda high right now, so I know that isn't helping.

    What are these?

    I was cleaning the algae off the glass this morning and in my overflow department I found these guys chilling on some purple algae. I'm thinking some kind of copepod? They have arms and legs and are running around the bottom of the chamber as well.

    Hanna checker question.

    I am upgrading my test kits and looking to buy a Hanna chexker for my phosphates. I see 2 of them, one that checks for high range and one that checks for low range. Which one do I want? Lol I would prefer not to buy both. I'm thinking the one that checks the high range?

    New Fluval light stressing my foxface.

    I decided to upgrade my lights hoping it will help me with the new leather I bought and got the new Fluval Sea and Marine 2.0 LED. When I turn on the moon lights my Fox face goes crazy. He starts swimming into the tank walls and rocks and I have to turn it off immediately. Will he get used to...

    High alkalinity..

    So I invested in a alkilinity test today since I'm getting a little concerned for my xenia trees. They have shrunk quite a bit and don't look as good as they did. Bought a sailfert test and tested as soon as I got home. Of course there are 2 readings and both are high. Results were 12.5 - KH...

    what the heck is this?

    It's on the bottom of a peice of a shell I got out of the ocean in July. That's a speck of sand on it. Any ideas? Good or bad?
