    bad news for @knight

    yeah, those are all great fish, but your tank can only handle one fish right now, i would still stick to 1 (one) hardy fish right now. it won't hurt to get one thats bigger than a guppy ;) but after 1 fish dont add another for a few weeks. The slower you go the better your tank will be.

    Protien Skimmer working in reverse?

    thats quite a lot for a 25 gal tank. How long has the skimmer been up. Skimmers have a break-in cycle they need to go thru before they become really effective.

    Shark Tankmate Suggestions Wanted

    IMO a lionfish would look great in a tank with a shark. groupers are nice also and both fish are relatively inexpensive and cool fish to have.

    Calcium or Kalkwasser?

    if you wnat to save a buck or fifteen, yoou can buy "Ball Pickling Lime" it is calcium Carbonate and the same thing as kalk. it takes longer to dissolve, but will do the job equally as well. additionally, when you drip, you want to use the middle solution, not the debris on bottom or the film...

    PureAragonite Sand vs Southdown

    it is the exact same sand, except it is a little more refined. it does cost more, but is still alot cheaper than your LFS.

    bugs in tank?

    your not in trouble at all! the larger things are called amphipods and the smaller ones are copepods. These are friendly guys and are signal that you have a healthy growing tank. The featherdusters you describe are tubeworms and are filter feeders. they are nice to have as well. The snails...

    how'd the peppermint shrimp get gobies??? Ive never seen a pappermint get aggressive, perhaps the gobies got sick or killed by something else and the shrim was just doing his job being a scavenger.

    my advice is to inject the ones you can see with kalk and get a couple peppermint shrimps to play clean-up on the ones you dont know about yet. For every one you have, you have 5 getting ready to pop up. these things reproduce faster than rabbits.

    SeaTest Calcium Test Kit

    my test kits do that. i think the test is accurate. keep adding calcium. it may take a few weeks after dosing before numbers will rise.

    quick ? doea any one use air stone's?

    theres nothing wrong with breaking the water surface, which prooly will happen with the filter. what you want to stray from is thousands of microbubbles clinging to the corals.

    free to whom ever pays shipping

    lion-fish, that comment was not necessary. Looking at your recent posts, i would say you still need to learn about fish. some people actually prefer CC as a substrate, it is great in FO and aggressive tanks. I still prefer LS, though personally. I appreciate Got Krabs offer, thanks.

    Diatom bloom?

    nassarius snails are good diatom eaters and live in the sand. if you can get a few they are highly recommended. but all in all, the best thing to do would be too be patient and wait it out.
