    skimmer problems.

    I have the same skimmer and the first one had a clog in the air venturie, most likely glue. It also takes a bit of time running before it starts skimming properly. Also DONT CLEAN THE INSDE OF THE PIPE ON THE COLLETIN CUP!:nope: The slime it builds up prevents the bubbles from popping. If you...

    New Rock.

    Same stuff I have in my tank. Plate like structure makes great building material. Other than dust and possibly any fungus (looks like freez dried coraline) it really needs no curing. Mine has started picking up coraline algea and seems to love the orange variety, although some read and teal have...

    WOW! Good timing guys. I was digging through som LR rubble I got at a LFS to spread the pieces around a bit and found lotsa critters. Several of the macro stars, which seem to be multiplying well, a tiny juvenile mantis shrimp (1/8 of an inch) which was going to go into my 29 by his lonesome...

    Refuse to clean!

    Nice anthias sandman. Someone asked for a suggestion, so heres mine. Asfar as size, most cleaners have been seen cleaning even large predatory fish like sharks, so I doubt thats the case. My first thought is that cleaners typically clean for a food source in the wild. Is it possible hes just...

    Help with Kalk.....aaarrrrggggg

    Reading up on this, I have seen (or read) that some have it drip right next to there protien skimmer. This allows the skimmer to take in the kalk and provide the needed co2 due to the gas exchange inside the skimmer. My biggest concer though would be in the skimmer removing the kalk, making the...

    Killer snails!!!

    I did the same thing, only the cost was a seahorse. Checking around, I found that there probably olive snails, and can eat fish you wouldnt think possible, kinda like the "lionfish" of snails. Most of the ones I have found are similar in shape to an olive, although one i had was close to...

    Let me know what you think

    Is that a piece of slate on the left hand side? I didnt realize that it could be reef safe, although its good in ciclid tanks. Nice looking tank, Im currently working on a 20, but I need to replce the bulb in my PC. Is that emperor filter? Thats what Im currently running.

    You just need to make sure it doesnt say "dolemite" anywhere on the bag. Some companies used such things as crushes oyster shell and cal it aragonite. Theyre both a form of calcium, its just that dolemite isnt the correct form for what is needed.There was a article in TFH that had a review, and...

    sand dollars

    I have had them, and they can do well. they are plantonic thoug, so you neen to make sure you supliment. The really dont do well in reef tanks because theres little surface area for them, and you have to watch the fish in a FOWLR to make sure there not eating them. Go out to a sand bar at the...

    i want a eel,lionfish and some other things can i have suggestions

    Originally posted by Harlequin A bigger concern of mine would be the toby fin nipping on the lion, puffers and related species are well know for this. Might I suggest a Antennatta or radiata lion instead of a dwarf. Both of these are perfect sized for your tank and tend to be much more open...

    lion fish and picasso trigger

    I had the same pair in my tank. The end result was I traded the picasso in for a new lion because the trigger ate the fins of the lion and killed it. He also halfway definned my niger trigger, who has been completly dociletoward my lion, but tries to nip at the exposed portions of my SFE...

    low light corals

    Thanks. I thought I saw someone do an aggressive reef setup and thought it would be kinda cool. What would th problems be? I know the eel (SFE) would be knocking rock over , but Im planning on epoxying the rock together. What problems would the lion and leaf make, other than waste?
