    BTA lonely! Help me choose my next Clownfish!

    I had to move my Gold stripe maroon to the Big house 225g. I noticed him starting to eat my Dungans and picking on other corals close to the anenome. On top of that, he won't let certain fish on that side of the tank to clean up. So! What is a great inexpensive clown??? One that will not pick on...

    Just last week I noticed some brown flat worms, sunbathing in the sandbed of my 90g. I looked a lil closer and there hangin in the rocks. Plus I have noticed a crap load of bristle worms lately.

    Lrg BristleWorm eating LPS!

    Last nite after I was feeding one of my corals. I noticed this huge Bristleworm 5"+ eating his food plus also nibbled on his mouth. Causing some damage. This is not the first time either, so I need to catch this sucker. It's not a fireworm, cause of the coloration of the worms body. It had the...

    Got my first Green Bubble Tip Anemone the other day for my 90g mixed reef. I've placed it twice in 2 different spots and liked neither one. Both spots where on the sand bed, up against some live rock. I guess he'll move around till he finds his spot! Hope it's not in a place where I cannot see...

    Dying Brain..Or not?

    My Trachyphyllia has not opened in over a week and the mouth seemed to start to receed a little bit, but now it seems to be repairing itself. This all started when I added my normal 2 part solution last Monday. As soon as I added the normal dosage of the KH, he immediately closed up and has not...

    What do you think?

    I need an opinion on my Silca filter for my RodI unit. As you can see in the pic it's almost half-way exhausted. My TDS meter reads 000 and 001. I would like to know if the Di resin looks like it's ready for a change or can it go a lil longer. Thanks for looking!

    KH and effects on LPS?

    I tested my KH levels this morning. Normally when the KH is in the 196.9 ppm range some of my LPS don't open up(Trachy's especially). But when the KH is in the 161.1-179ppm range they seem to respond better. I sometimes let it go to the 196.9ppm range to accommodate my SPS corals. Has anyone...
