    Interresting symptons on my purple tang.

    Not sure what disease it is...if any. Hes the king of the tank so no reason to suspect hes picked on. Had him 2 years no worries. Eats like a champ, healthy and happy. Loves to come out and show off for anyone who comes into the room. But I noticed him missing the other day and after about 45...

    Our country's monitary system is in its last gasps.

    I'm not asking much....just watch some interesting documentaries in youtube format and form your own opinion. I would just like to see people prepare themselves before they go to a grocery store and bread is $500 a loaf. I'm a college student and I scrape $200 a...

    What happend while I was gone?

    I cant even use this site with Firefox, all the extra junk added now makes everything all haywire. I couldnt even type a new thread. Now with all the cheesy advertising and what not. This site used to be way better. Way uncool.

    Both have been calibrated to 0.   Meter #1: ATC 100 Meter #2: RHS-10 ATC   Both are excellent refractometers. I tested two batch's of water and the readings surprised me: First batch, ATC 100: .030 RHS-10 ATC: .024   Second batch: ATC 100: .026 RHS -10 ATC: .026 I triple...

    Id like to get a good 'maintanance wrasse'

    A good wrasse can be a means of pest control. I like wrasse's, they have wonderful personality and look amazing. So I planned on getting one anyways.   I would like one that is great at cleaning up unwanted pests in the tank. I scored big time with my Copperband Butterfly, he prefers mysis and...

    Need recomendations for good Fuge light.

    I have a coral sun Actinic 420 bulb. Was wondering if it would make a good fuge light. I didn't think it would, but it was a free bulb so I took it. Though it does say promotes zooxanthellae algae, and helps in chlorophyll production. Pretty much any thing that emits light will do that. Any...

    Neptunes 72" Custom LED system.

    Ordered my parts a few hours ago, but I'm so excited I decided to make a build thread early! This will be a culmination of input from half dozen fellow reefers, so if anything looks familiar, it probably came from someone you've seen. Course by now, a majority of these builds look similar...

    Any advice on a whole saler license? For corals?

    On a whim, I am looking into getting my own whole sale license. There is a new distributor in the area that deals directly to licensed wholesalers. They have a new warehouse setup for coral imports, and propagation, but its obviously not public. Droool! I would love to get a license. Is there...

    Need help identifying a new pest....

    I know a picture would really help. But I cant get my camera to focus. Its garbage. They are about the size/shape of a pea. They are white. They look like barnacles(i.e. they have polyps on the tips), but soft. Mostly I see them attached to the power heads, but there are a few here and there on...
