    Protein Skimmer and Nitrates

    no. have you tried fine tuning the skimmer at all? theres normally a break in period on skimmers and after that break in they need to be adjusted. keep the neck of the collection cup clean as well. if too much debris accumulates, IME, the skiimate tends to have a harder time making its way up...

    What kind of clam is this?

    ima say maxima too, although squamies and maximas look very similar when they're smaller. actually, on second thought, maybe it is a squamosa. that peach color in the mantle is seen a lot more in squamosas IME. you cant really go by that though. shell will be the only way to know for sure.

    How do you achieve water flow

    if youre going with the second filter just for water movement, ditch that idea and spend the money on a few nice size powerheads. as already said, koralias are the best bang for the buck, but if you dont mind spending some money, look into tunze streams or vortech. they both offer models that...

    dissapointed in LR order

    no where did i say "coraline covered, pod crawling" or "premium". I've just seen a lot better rock than what i received. i work at a LFS, the biggest showroom on the east coast as a matter of fact, and ive cleaned literally thousands of pounds of live rock. i can still say I've never seen rock...

    dissapointed in LR order

    im just curious as to if people who have ordered LR from here were happy or not? i ordered the 12lbs on here to use in my 16g cube and im real disappointed. I've ordered a lot of stuff from here and my fish and corals were always in great shape, but the rock isn't what i was expecting. now i...

    lighting for soft corals

    that lighting will do for softies. you might be able to try an LPS of some type, but don't go crazy right off the bat. try one out and see how it does. something like a trumpet coral or some type of euphyllia might do well up higher in your tank because you can also spot feed these guys.
