    Allergic Reaction

    I am thinking it could be zoos from reading about them before. My brother had just started a tank and some of his corals were not doing well so we moved them to my tank. I would assume they were stressed out and giving toxins. I take it you just kept taking benadryl or something of that sort...

    Zoanthid Propogation

    Help Xenia and Kenya Tree Dieing

    The temperature is now down to 80 degrees. I take it I can buy some type of additive and I will have to keep adding that in order for my corraline to remain. As far as my soft corals I would assume they would be fine without adding some sort of buffer?

    Pump Suggestion

    Does anyone have a suggestion as to an external pump than I can run for my 72 gallon? I would like something with enough flow, quiet, and can handle the head pressure to pump water up to the display tank.

    Live Sand

    What are my options for livesand. I have had southdown for a year and don't really like it. It is too fine. I also don't want to pay $30 for a tiny bag. Is there a coarse dead sand or anything out there that is affordable?

    What are the things that seem to be adjustable that are for water return from a sump. They are normally black, seem to be attatched to the bulkhead, if I am using the right word, and they shoot the water out. How much do they cost? Thanks, Joe
