    Heavy Protein Skimming With Soft Corals

    I had a discussion today with a veteran reefer. He suggested that soft corals do not do as well in aquariums with heavy protein skimming. He thinks that slightly dirtier water provides a better enviornment for them. His suggestion that really heavy skimming creates an ideal enviornment for LPS...

    Feedback - Can My System Support A Heavy Bio-Load

    in over my head with new elos 215 gallon setup

    Did you invest in a quarantine system? I would quarantine all new fish for at least 2 weeks in copper or hyposalinity before adding them to your tank. You have a parasite free system; keep it that way.

    New Strains of Ich - Beware

It really does a number on Ich. I want to make people aware of this. This forum is littered with folks that have Ich...

    New Strains of Ich - Beware

If people do not treat correctly, it is possible that Ich could begin to mutate and gain immunity to this drug as well...
