    Coming back to the hobby!

    I stepped away from reef tanks for around 15 years now. I had a 29 gallon reef tank. My uncle and I really got into the smaller reef tanks (neither of us had room for a larger tank). Yesterday I ordered a 70 gallon reef ready tank with all the fixings! For now it will be fish only, but I'm...

    FS: 29 gal equipment/corals/fish

    My tank went downhill after I moved over the summer and I don't have the time to get it back where it should be. Therefore I decided to sell what I have and just start a FW tank for now. Looking for enough to get the FW tank going (new tank and all). I have PC 133 lights, two powerheads (one is...

    Feeding coral banded shrimp....

    I feed my fish every other day and every now and then he'll come out and pull some shrimp out of the turkey baster. I usually spot feed him when I see him digging into my plates mouth to grab the food that it caught.

    Nice rock work. Try to go slow adding corals and remember to give them enough room to grow (some mistakes I made at first ;) )

    How often do you change water to adjust numbers?

    Its a good idea to do about a 10% water change every week. It will help keeps params in check and add new nutrients to the tank.

    Emerald Crab- Dead or Molted?

    It sounds like a molt if the shell cracked easily and was hollow inside. Mine molt all the time. You even see the hairs on their legs on the molts, so it is usually really hard to tell. After a molt the crabs will hide out in the shelter of the rock until their new shell hardens. My guess is...

    10g nano update 2

    Let it sit overnight. All the heavier sand will sink to the bottom. Its perfectly normal when setting up a new tank. Do you have any power heads on currently? Turning them off may help the sand settle a little quicker.

    Will base rock ever become live rock? included!!!

    Having it in a salt water tank will eventually bring it to life. As bacteria builds up in the tank, other bacteria will start to grow on the rocks to consume the initial bacteria. This cycle continues on and on until the tank is alive and you have a working ecosystem. However, it will take...

    Cycle question with shrimp

    Use a raw cocktail shrimp to kick off the cycle. Keep it in until it starts to decompose in the water. After a couple days you should start seeing your algea levels going up. The entire cycle time can vary, but usually takes from 4-6 weeks. In my opinion, the shrimp method is the quickest way...
