    I bought some live rock about 4 days ago and today during lunch I was able to get alook at a worm. Never in my 4 years of saltwater did I ever think I had worms or even seen them. This one is orange flat on top and bottom alot of bristles ( or legs ) He only came out of the hole about 4 inches...

    Live Rock Question

Can I divide up the rock into the sump and have that count towards my total poundage? ( thinking more swimming room and so forth) Since water is taken out of the tank and through the...

    Little Giant

Should I go a higher over flow ( that is about 7.5 times my tank ) also is there flow control on the motor itself or would I have to...

    If one has a 125 long. And plans to put in some southdown in it then seed it with Live sand. How much south down would be needed for a 4-5 inch bottom all together.

    To Sump or not to Sump

    Ok I been digging around on Sumps and have asked a few questions but I am still alittle wishey washey on the whole thing.

    QT Tank

    On a Q tank how do you guys set yours up? I have read that some people keep it medicated or some people keep it in hypo. Or do you keep it normal then hypo once you get the fish to make sure there is no ICK. Just was wondering what is the best way to have my water set up. Thanks

    It was once thought that my fish ( or atleast my trigger had ich) So I made up another tank and moved the trigger. He hasn't beat him self up again the rock since a few days ago. ( when he was in the main tank ) Upon looking at him I do see tiny little white pin dots but I am having a bit of...

    I have to run out and get another small tank to set-up. I was one of the ones that got caught without one. What I want to know is since I moved my 125 and put the LS in my 55 I still have some LS left over in a bucket with water.. Can I put that in the bottom to make the tank cycle quicker? I...

Now I know you are suppose to QT ( sad enough I didn't do it ) but I am going to learn from this mistake. I am going out...
