    New Mexico Reefers?

    Another Albuquerque Reefer here. I know Rob, and frequent his store...Menaul and Vassar, by the way. It's good to see other NM reefers here, and I know a few more that are on these forums. Im interested in trading frags, meeting, or whatever. I'm mostly looking for softies or LPS' though.

    Seaclone 100?

    I used to have a SeaClone 100. Now that I have a Remora I realize what garbage the SeaClone was. Spend the extra $$, and dont skimp on a skimmer. There are, however, a few mods you can do the the SeaClone to get a little better performance from it.

    VHO Lighting Question

    The two 120mm fans blow across the the inside of the canopy and top of the tank. I primarily use them in the summertime to increase evaporation thereby keeping the tank a bit cooler. I also know that it keeps the water temps a bit cooler, albeit just 1 or 2 degrees. If it's "the amount of...

    VHO Lighting Question

    That's just it...I have my heaters (plural) set to 83. I will try turning them up to 85. It REALLY shouldnt be that warm. I think that the MH over the tank heats it during the day. It shouldnt be getting as hot as it does, and that's one of the reasons Im considering VHO.

    VHO Lighting Question

    I have a 50g reef which I use a 400w 10K MH and 55w x 2 Actinic PC to light. My issue is temperature fluctuations. During the day I hit as high as 83/84 degrees, and at night I drop to 77/78. 6 degrees fluctuation. My MH sits 8" off of the waters surface in a canopy, and I use two 120mm fans...

    Candy Canes

    My Candy Canes usually extend their feeder tentacles right after my MH goes off and only my actinics are on. At that point I can spotfeed most of the heads (I have about 15 heads) with one squirt of a turkey baster partially filled with mysis, cyclopeeze, or other food of choice. Depending on...

    help fraging a polyp

    A couple of choices: -try breaking the live rock where you want it to split. This is easily accomplished with a screw driver and a little bit of leverage on a porous piece of rock. Once the LR is split, seperate the colony of polyps using a razor blade. The downfall to this method is that it's...

    Help With Randall's Goby

    I just picked one up and noticed had the same problem after acclimation. They're bottom feeders, so make sure that food is getting to the bottom of the tank and not getting eaten by faster more aggressive fish. Also try enticing him with food soaked in garlic. I used a turkey baster to get food...

    Suggestions needed for new fish...

    Be careful how many fish you add, and the speed you add them. Dont add too much livestock too fast. Being that it's a 29g FOWLR, you dont have much room for more additions. I'd say one more fish, but two would be cramping it IMO. About your suggestions...Here's a quick list that meet 2/3 of...
