    Auto Top Off - Your Thoughts?

    I am already tired of checking sg everyday and refilling my tank to a specific amount. It chugs nearly half a gallon a winter! I can only imagine what it is going to use during the summer. What are some good ATO systems that aren't an arm and a leg? Thoughts?

    Clownfish - Part Time ******** Decorator

    After I got my rbta and my maroon took to it the next day, I was cleaning my tank and re-arranging a few things to accomodate some new corals. I put some corals near the rbta. The next morning, they were on the sand. I thought that my turbo snail, he is pretty big, probably knocked it over. I...

    My Maroon is Sick:(

    I got my new Maroon yesterday. Today, I see that he has a large white spot on his rear fin. He is a baby and he seemed a little flustered when I introduced him to the tank yesterday and my peudochromis was pestering the new guy. Last night he slept up in the top corner and today he is down by...

    Protein Skimmer vs Filter

    A quick question for all you biocubers: The biocube protein skimmer fits in where the filter cartridges go. So, you can no longer use filter cartridges. Is the protein skimmer good enough for filtration? Is it better?

    Anemone Questions/Help!

    All params are good. My LFS had him on sale and it was too good a price to pass up. I just got him yesterday so I dripped acclimated and he was a little shriveled when I put him in, closed up when I turned off the lights, and opened up a little bit today. My other two coral frags I got are doing...

    To Float or Drip, that is the question.

    I have seen instructions for each technique and read the articles that each one will work just fine. But, which is the best? My LFS floats and all of their critters are happy and kicking but I have seen other stores such as this site recommend only dripping if you order from them.

    Finally Starting Up!

    I bought a 14 g Biocube yesterday because I have been wanting salt water fish for years and finally mustered up the courage to start up. I have read that I don't need a protein skimmer if I buy live rock as it contains the micro fauna to properly clean and keep nitrate levels normal. Is that...
