    My heater just broke. Will my fish make it until tomorrow

    You'll be fine. If you're really worried about it turn the temp up in that room for the night and/or leave the light on for some extra heat (if you have Metal Halides anyhow)

    Need return pump help fast!

    My return pump just went out- it came with my reef tank used and I can't find that same brand anywhere... it's a Beauty brand and "CAP-2200 Volt:115/60 Hz t/hr: 2200 Watt: 33W" What would be a suitable replacement??? I would like to buy one and get next day delivery as I don't want my reef going...

    Have a few questions about Yellow Cucumbers.

    Not for 8 gallon tank, I think there might be some variety that filter feed but most cucumbers clean sand.... LOTS of it... either way I wouldn't put one in a tank that small.

    Light problems, contact info?

    I have had a coralife light on my tank now for just over one year (twin 250 MH and twin 96 acintics) but the acintics (spelling?) are now not working right... I hear what sounds like a short when I flip the switch to turn them on... if I leave them on they eventually short and go out...

    Aquacultured Live Rock?

    my buddy and I made some of our own with cement and oyster shell... can't tell it apart from the wild stuff now- completely covered in coraline and little critters, best part is you can make whatever size and shape pieces you want.

    Told these were feather dusters but?

    probably dead feather dusters if nothing has poked out since you've had them. I have a few of these and their tubes grow with age, get longer, mine have little red feather dusters that come out... I'm sure there's a name for them but I don't know.. beneficial IMO to have.

    I think my CBS is carrying eggs..

    I could be wrong here but I think they might have a free swimming stage after which case the powerheads and other filtration devices would kill them. I think to have any chance at all you would have to transfer them to a empty tank, remove the adults after hatching, use a sponge...
