    Is this a seaba clown and is this a condy it's hosting?

    it's a condy with a clarkii. Clarkiis and sebaes are actually different, although they are often sold as the same fish. The easiest way to tell is clarkiis have 3 stripes and sebaes have 2.

    Salifert Flatworm Exit

    I used it last night. Worked great. If you want to treat separately in a bucket, use revive. It works great and it a hell of a lot cheaper. But I certainly wouldnt dose it in your system. Haha. I didn't have tons, but within a few minutes they started falling off the rocks. I sucked up all...

    SPS in 10 gallon

    You should be fine. Make sure they get a lOT of flow. They shield them selves and therefore, need more flow than other sps in order to keep reach the inside of the corals. Just about every large colony you will see will have a dead center because of this. If you can get your hands on a PAR meter...

    EPCOT CENTER Calcium 750 ppm

    nat's right. It will start percipitating at that point. It will depend what your Alk, pH, and Mag is as to weather or not your tank will be completely white or not. However, levels that high will have at least some percipitate, and will build up on pumps and in your skimmer and reduce...

    What do you feed your tank?

    Filter feeders such as some sea fans/gorgonians, bivalves, and tube worms will benefit form it. But something like live phytoplankton would be more beneficial to all. It's crap, IMO. I have a 10 gallon tank with mainly sps and a good number of lps, and some zoos. I feed: baby brine shrimp...

    Can I divide the bag?

    what brand is this? Of course you can divide it, but make sure to use a bag/filter with a similar pore size and just in case, I would be carful about handling what is inside if you dont know what it is.

    Berlin Turbo Protein Skimmer

    I've used one at work and have been impressed with it for what the old berlins did. The new NW turbo isn't great, but it's not horrid. Still a few levels above a seaclone, IME.

    Berlin Turbo Protein Skimmer

    How dry are you skimming? Depending on your system, you could definitely get more than that, but not necessarily. If you skim dry, or have a lot of build-up on the neck and riser, you aren't going to really get any skimmate. Do you usually have increased skimming once the cup and neck are...
