    I made the switch from IO directly to Oceanic and didn;t experience any problems. I was doing 15g water changes on a 75g tank.

    Blue Reef Chromis question

    I've lost a number of these over time as well. I had a school of five to begin with - I lost two of them rather quickly and the other three were doing fine for several months. I'm now down to two and it has been that way for a while.. Not sure what it is with those fish..

    Mega-Powerful Nitrate and Phosphate Remover Replaces Skimmer, Refugium, Everything

    This is a very interesting concept, thanks for making this info available to the boards! I've read over this a few times now and I think I am at a good understanding of the concept. Quick question: If I wanted to create a bucket system and keep it underneath my tank, what would be the...

    Plumbing Question

    I have a quick plumbing question. I am currently using a Directional U-Tube with a flare nozzle as the return from my sump into my display. I would like to split the flow so I can distribute more evenly to both sides of the aquarium. What do I need to achieve this? My initial thought is a...

    An easier way for a H20 change?

    I siphon the water out with 1" hose because it gets the water out in a hurry - then I use a Mag 5 to pump waste water out of the bucket and into the sink - take pre-mixed SW and pump it back into the tank. Fairly easy operation.. Only a few drips here and there. After you do it enough you'll...

    My suggestion would be the AquaC Remora. It is completely plug and play, great results with zero adjustments..

    A beginners question please help

    I assume by trickle sump you mean a wet/dry? In my opinion, the refugium would be best suited for the reef, but you could also incorporate a sump to your reef to keep equipment (skimmer, heaters, etc.) concealed from your display tank and it wouldn't be too costly...

    Finicky eating Banggai Cardinal??

    I got mine to start eating with Brine soaked in garlic. Do you know if it is wild caught or not? Tank raised specimens are much hardier and less finicky when it comes to eating.

    what fish should I put in my 75n gal tank

    Also, as an alternative to the PJ Cardinals, the Banggai cardinals are very interesting looking fish as well. Just be sure to buy tank raised specimens because wild caught have very poor survival rates. I bought two tank raised Banggai's from this site and am very happy with them.

    oceanic vs reef crystals

    I used to use regular Instant Ocean and was having a hard time maintaining my calcium levels so I switched to Oceanic. I've had very good results since I switched. I do a 20% change every two weeks and only dose C-Balance in between to maintain a calcium level of 420. I've not used Reef...
