    Now 4 Fish gone AWOL!!

    they died and have been eaten. BTW a cleaner wrasse should never have been introduced to your tank. All it did was starve to death. Then need very large tanks with many more inhabitants than your, mine or most home aquariums can/do have or can handle. They only eat parasites and the slime...

    Shrimps keep dying :(

    How long are you taking to acclimate them into the tank? What is the salinity level of your tank v. where you are getting them? How long are they at the place you are getting them from? If they are new arrivals there it could be the stress of too much change too fast. You say you got normal...

    Water Changes

    I have been in the hobby for 21 years, with some time out from time to time. In all that time there has been so many different rules of thumb, but I have found what works well for me in terms of the life in the aquarium and "life" in my wallet. You need to do some sort of change, what works for...

    Tank Background Wont Stay On

    You can so long as you are careful. I prefer a painted background myself, and usually go with blur to simulate the ocean. Make sure you cover everything you can.

    My 1st algae scrubber build

    I finished my scrubber last night about 1am and got it going in my sump. I got it running overnight. On the way home from work I need to pick up a light for it. I am open to ideas for a light. I will get some pics of it later tonight when I get home.

    My scarlets always sem to take a few days to move. I have bee sure a number of times they were dead, then they would start to move. Maybe give it some time.

    Closed loop ideas

    I am leaning back to the closed loop idea, due to money issues. But of course that means a pipe running down behind the rock as I am not draining it to drill a couple holes. Well there is no hurry, I have not started stocking it yet, it just has the content of my old 29 gal in it. I would love...

    Closed loop ideas

    how are they better, or are they, than another powerhead? I like the idea of not having a wire running down, but not for an extra $200.

    Closed loop ideas

    I am just looking for a way to get a little water flow behind the rocks. Does anyone know what the name of the power heads are called that stick to the glass with the power source on the outside and the head in the inside of the tank?

    is polyuerethane okay

    Quote: Aquaman: What is your concern in the matter? Meaning, are you concerned with contamination being caused to the tank somehow or is it that the heat and humidity will cause the poly to take longer to cure? I only ask because it's not like he's using the stuff on his wood floor...he's...

    is polyuerethane okay

    I would not use it right away, it takes a month for it to cure. If you have heat then a little less, but maybe a week less. I work with the stuff all the time. It may not harm your tank, but why take the chance.
