    benefits of coralline algae?

    Originally Posted by ophiura I wouldn't say it "does" anything for the tank, however growth of it is considered to be indicative of a reasonably well balanced system. It is an indicator more than anything else. Tanks can be successful without it, though an SPS tank could have issues. Yep, in...

    Fact or Fiction?

    Ut wait.. I stand corrected.. they begin shipping to retailers on that date. In another article I've read, it states, "If you pre ordered the little pump you should expect it in the next 2-3 weeks depending on how fast your retailer can turn the orders around."

    14k 250w Mogul Base MH Bulbs - Best ones ?

    SCSI, not to get off topic, but how do you like the radiums? I need to get new bulbs but I'm torn between 14k Phoenix and the 20k Radiums. I want good coloration but don't want to sacrafice too much growth if I don't have to. I know we can't have everything (i.e. awsome color and best...

    Aggressive or not?

    I highly doubt that its the hawk.. or the anemone.. or the LMB. There is just no way those fish could "kill" the missing livestock. Two out of the 3 fish that are missing are of adult size, the other is a juvi but still, im sure its at least 1 1/2"-2" in size. If anything, the hawk or LMB...

    need advise on Red Slime and Bristle Worm infestation

    Yes water parameters would be helpful. Bristle worms and aptasia usually begin to appear when the water conditions are suitable.. when there are high DOC/nitrates.. usually caused by overfeeding or poor circulation. Lighting conditions do not matter for these two, as aptasia can live in almost...

    Help me LIGHT UR up!!

    Dual 175watt halides... you can keep almost anything givin your parameters are right If you don't want to do the anemone, you could do a nice mixed reef with t-5's, with metal halides your corals would thrive, and you would have a better chance at long term success. The fish will be fine under...

    Aggressive or not?

    Have an open top tank? If so, I would check the floor.. blennies, gobies, and jawfish are notorious tank jumpers. All but 1 from your list of tankmates are good to go.. but that damsel

    Return Pump Suggestions..

    Wow, thank you both for the quick responses! I really appreciate it. Thats the pump I was looking at for the mags... at first I was nervous about the flow rate (735gph @ 5.5ft.) and then i remembered that I had a ball valve on the return line, hiding behind the tank. I guess when you neglect...

    Fish Crazy!!!!!!!

    Agreed, most dottybacks, hawkfish, wrasses ect. are considered "reef safe" but usually have to moniter with shrimp, especially if its a smaller sized shrimp like a peppermint or small cleaner. Like Arvins stated, it all depends on the fish. Just like reefers trying to keep a pygmy angel from...

    My ugly tank is getting better

    Tank looks awsome, I like your aquascape! I agree with Flower.. I would definately consider a solid background, it would really give it some depth. Btw, is that a spp. of pencil urchin in the first pic just to the right of the zoas?
