    Setup for my tank to top off water

    PlumRT70, Hello! I have a 240 gallon, and used to use a 40 or so gallon container as both a RO DI storage tank for future saltwater mix's and as a top off source for evaporation purposes. It worked well, but not a 100 percent! The tank was off grade, enclosed in its own room, so spills weren't a...

    Sea Apples

    I have had a sea apple in my reef for a long time. Mine sits right next to a colony of xenia, and grows fatter each month! I make sure that he is feed, and he loves the algea that gets scraped of of the glass. It is one of my favorite animals. I have never had any bad things happen. He eats...

    New Colt Coral

    Is 48 watts enough light? I know when I put my colt in an outdoor tank, It turned white, so I had to put it in the shade and let it regain its zooanthiliea. If you have enough light, it should keep a darker color, and do well.

    Fox coral HELP!

    What are your calcium and iodine levels? Put it in the shade and in a soft flow. I have had some that once they start, its hard to come back. Then again, I actually fraged one once. I broke the shell, and cut the skin, (actually it tore a little to!) and both survived! The iodine can be high if...

    What da HECK just happened?

    I have two green brittles for about 8 yrs! I feed them several times a week, one cube of algea and a cube of krill, shrimp, etc. I notice fish disappear, but my guess is that the fish doesnt last long it has died. I have xenia, and mine don't seem to touch it. I you feed them regularly, they...

    Raising Salt Levels?

    Hey there, Is there any specific reason for your discission to bump up your SG? I keep mine at 1.022. Hate to change a good thing, but many others keep sps at 1.024. I might be time to reconsider my tanks parameters, considering Florida skies does put some water into the tank. Any thoughts...

    BTW, been there done that with the 400s. They were on a 8 by 4 by 4. They were to intense. I didnt have sps at the time though. They were also 20K. The 400s wont light up a bigger area, just carry the intensity deeper, say if you had a 4 foot tall tank. On a 150, (sixfoot? ) maybe 4 175MH, and 4...

    hEY THERE!, Nice tank! Good luck on the upgrade. If you are going to build your own canopy, let me know, I might have some spare parts around. I think I have four electronic ballasts for 175 MH, that are in storage. The calcium reactor works great. I run about 60 bubbles/ min with about 60 ml...

    ro water?

    Hello, As long as you keep any contaminets out you should be fine. I will say that if you do buy a unit, get a 3 stage RO DI. I you do buy one, you can have a float in the small bucket an use it as an auto fill system for evaporation. See ya, Steve
