    Spawning Pair of Clown Fish

    Do you have your own test kits? Very important. If you do have test kits can you list the current water parameters? Breathing heavy is definitely a sign of stress. Could be the new environment or it could be the water parameters have changed since you had the LFS test your water. One common...

    Dying Anemones

    The new tank is the issue. Give the Anemone to someone with an established tank or back to the store. Once your tank has been established for a year or so and you have proper lighting and water flow you can try again.

    Deflated Anemone

    They need to occasionally deflate. Especially after a large meal. I wouldn't worry about it unless it stays deflated for more than a day or so.

    32 Biocube Question

    It depends on the relative humidity around the tank. If you run air conditioning for example, the humidity will be low and water will evaporate faster. As a rough estimate I'd plan on about a gallon every other day.

    Male clownfish eating eggs after years of successful spawns.

    Hey ST, The male will typically eat unhealthy or dead eggs. This often happens when waterflow decreases around the pairs normal spawning area. This could be to changes to the tank or in my case I neglect trimming overgrown corals. It could also be the case that the male is thinking eggs are...

    What brown algea is growing on the bottom of my tank?

    My preference is the compost heap. It's outstanding fertilizer for tomatoes.

    Macroalgae ID

    fCouple notes from my experience. Trim out the older stems, not the new growth. Trimming the new growth causes it to halt growth for a couple days and it is the growth of the algae that consumes the Phosphates and Nitrogen. This also reduces the risk of sporulation. If you see the stems of...

    Macroalgae ID

    I adamantly do not agree with this. The reason is that denitrifying bacteria and nitrifying bacteria are pretty much opposite in preferred real estate. Nitrifying bacteria require highly oxygenated areas and denitrifying bacteria require lowly oxygenated areas. I will agree that if a...

    Sugar dose post cycle
