    brown covering algea

    Sounds like dead diatom shells. Could be related. Sounds like to me your MH are running longer than needed and adding the extra nutrients to the tank is feeding them. I run my MH 7 hours a day on the SPS tank and only use NO atinics for 12. I don't add any other "coral vitamins" other than the...

    t.crocea wont open. HELP ALL

    How big is this clam? Is it on the small side and need to be fed? If it has not been moving, sorry about your loss. Stable enviroment is the key. Moving and chasing numbers all over is not the right way to save a clam. Calcium can and will lower itself by doing nothing, not adding calcium is the...

    the starfish strikes again!!!

    My serpant ate 2 of my fish, down in the sump it went. It's a brown common one if you need to know. It may be my fault, I should have spot fed it more than I was. It is strange how I know it was the serpant and not anything else. It always stayed on the left of the tank and it moved to the...

    too much water movement?

    Going to larger tank cycle question

    You are wrong to worry. Top 1/2" is all and it will speed up the cycle 10 fold.

    pH monitor in sump or in tank?

    No difference, you can't see it in the sump so it's "out of sight". That's where I would put it.

    What is killing my reef?!?!!

    Didn't understand your train of thought on ophiura question on the whole xenia thing. But, if the xenia started to melt first, it released a whole lot of junk back in the tank and all the rest of the corals went down down with the ship. I don't mean to be redundant if that is what you meant...

    UGLY as all - plumbing help needed

    Yeah, OK, your reducing flow by 50%. But your not wasting the electricity. And when it's on, you get the full force not a cut back flow. How far does the flow come out of them? A few inches? Maybe a foot? My tank is 4 feet long, I need random flow in the middle and the ends. Just saying, yes...
