    Hi! We had some difficulty contacting the winning contest. Turns out they were located in Texas and had been without power for a week. After struggling to keep his family and aquarium healthy during the terrible situation. He was greeted by our emails telling him he won. We're really happy to...

    Surface area is a must to colonize beneficial bacteria. Bio-balls probably provide the least out of common medias. When thinking bio filtration, think dense and porous. Bio-balls will work, but they're the least efficient use of space imo.

    Honestly, your chemistry sounds like it's right on schedule. Adding live rock is better than biomedia. People will argue this, but just by surface area alone it's superior. Add in the PH stabilization and added bacteria, it can be worth the risk. Just inspect the rocks and give them a good...

    Hi! It sounds like you're on the right path. Keep testing your parameters and adding a nutrient source until nitrites and nitrate stabilize. Adding some live rock definitely speeds things up imo, but...you risk adding hitchhikers that could be problematic down the road.

    OT: My New (used) Car

    I just had the strangest experience... I own a celica and am a member of a few Toyota forums. I saw this thread and had to double take and make sure I was in the SWF forum! I have been posting an Apex giveaway we are doing and thought for a second I was spamming one of the Yota groups with reef...

    Test phosphate. If you can post all parameters that would definitely help us decide what's up.

    Keep an eye on nitrites, I would test at least every other day until you hit the 90 day mark. Your biological filtration will need to adapt and increase to handle the new bio-load. The 1st 90 days can be extra volatile. Have a QT tank ready. As for stock ideas, don't add anything expensive at...

    I wouldn't say its unusual. I typically shoot for 10 to 15 X aquarium volume.

    Feather duster attached to glass.

    I use plastic cards to remove anemones from glass. I imagine it would also work with tube worms. An old gift card or something like that. Go slow and it should be ok.

    Zoas

    I would suggest moving them as close to light and flow as you can. I have collected zoas from the wild many times. They grow on jetty rocks at my local inlet. They grow right below the surface of the water and are pummeled by crashing waves all day. Keep your chemistry stable and they should...
