    AAAAHHHHH I'm addicted to this damn hobby. I can't stop, I'm on these forums every second I get! I stalk fish stores at least 4 days a week. I read web pages, books, anything I can get my eyes on! I wish I had 10 tanks and more corals and fish then I can handle :-) Is it always like this :-)

    Another fun lighting question

    Ok well after I decided to get a SW tank (50g, 36x19x19) (and did a ton of research) I quickly decided to get a few corals. That begins my problem, at first I had a Nova Extreme 78w 2 bulb (1x39W T5HO actinic & 1x39W T5HO 10k). That worked/works fine for a FOWLR but as you all know this is an...

    So I am in the process of upgrading my lighting because i have decided to house some medium and low light corals. I understand all the levels that I should test except I have a few questions concerning dKH. Do you have to buffer it to keep it high enough for corals? My kit measures Alk and I...

    I guess this is actually a few questions but the heart of the concern is what I should do to upgrade my lighting. I have a few options (at least I think I do). I have a 50g tank (36x19x19) I want to have a BTA and probably some medium light corals down the road. Mostly hardy species that aren't...

    what are these things?

    So my tank finished cycling and I got the bright idea to try to place a piece of base rock in there (it has the best hole in it ever) and while doing that I kicked around some sand. Now that I'm looking at my glass I see these tiny white things about the size of a grain of sand. They are white...

    Would I be able to keep an Anemone w/this lighting?

    I want to get a Percula Clown and was wondering if my current lights would be able to sustain a hosting anemone. Through my research I have found that Ritteri (maroon), Saddle, Bubble, and Carpet Anemones tend to host this particular clown. Buuutttt.... Can my lights handle any of those? I have...

    My LR

    I recently set up my tank and have added approx 45 lbs of LR. There is also 60 lbs of LS in there and 50lbs of base rock. The equipment has been running for a few days now (the skimmer is just hitting its stride). What do you think of the LR? Most of it is from my LFS's display tanks and as such...
