    I have fresh carbon in the sump. The skimmer is skimming like crazy(euro reef). My fish look like they are going to die. About the seachem it a proven product or a gimmick like most reef "miracle working" products. I hate most chemicals.

    OK here's the problem. I have a 125 gallon partial reef tank at my office. There is close to 200 lbs of live rock in the tank. My office staff put an anemone in the tank....Ritteri to be specific. Long story short the thing died while I was out of town. We had a dead anemone in the tank for 2...

    fuge questions?????

    If you use a mechanical pump to return water to the main tank you will kill most living things with the impellar. You need to use a gravity fed return.

    COTW: Hydnophora Rigida

    I'd like to mention that Hydnophora is very easily propogated. With attention to detail Hydnophora will thrive immediately and will readily adapt after being propogated. Hydnophora is also one of the fastest growing SPS corals available. With a high calcium level and good H20 parameters you...

    Acryllic sump

    There is a site where you can calculate the thickness that you will need. I don't know what it is, but it's available. NEVER guess. -Fellow-

    euroreef CS 6-3?????

    The impellar is what's shot and apparently they won't sell the impellar only. I could buy another sedra, but this one failed too quickly for me to consider purchasing another one. -fellow-

    euroreef CS 6-3?????

    I currently run this skimmer on my 125. The pump recently failed and I would like to replace it with a new, better pump. I understand that the impellar is a special design and makes the skimmer work with high efficiency. Is there a pump or an add-on that I could get to replace the old pump? -fellow-

    lighting a refugium

    I am experimenting with a 500 watt halogen bulb. I must say the macro growth is outstanding. I am trimming at least once every 4-6 days. Fauna growth is not stunted. One problem, macro is not the only algae growing, I have spots of 3 different nuisance algaes. They have not transferred to the...

    Coral farm is almost done...

    Great setup!!! Two things: You might need more shelf space. That Ca reactor is going to be your best addition to the tank. The lighting set is perfect. Whose plans are you using to build the Ca reactor? I would be cautious when you add the reactor...monitor everything very closely at first...I...

    Help building a refigum

    you could do it seperate, but it wouldn't be a refugium, it would be another tank. You have to gravity feed it back to the main tank because you will kill alot of the things you grew in the and worms. Look up refugium plans on the web...there are tons of plans to help. -fellow-

    quick Q about adjusting light levels

    Actually that's the right way to do it. You need to start out with the lights being on for 2-4 hours a day. You can gradually increase this until your corals are fully adjusted to 8-10 hrs. of light. You can reduce the stress and shock of changing light by the addition of iodide. DO NOT OVERDOSE...

    Macros or Xenia in a refuge.

    You are correct...xenia will not eat any particulate food, but it will absorb nutrients such as amino acids. Did you know that xenia can harm SOME hard corals? -fellow.
