    Bare bottom reef?

    After struggling with nitrate for almost 3 years, I’m taking down the reef, removing the gravel I have. I chose a coarse gravel because I liked the look but didn’t realize how much it was going to trap detritus. do I’m thinking of going care bottom instead of sand. Any suggestions? Any...

    I have never seen this before

    This is what I believe happened to this cleaner wrasse. He got slashed by a tang. I have seen him irritate the kole to a point where it would chase the wrasse away. It looked really bad at first but it slowly healing. So next time another reefer tells me his tang cut another one to pieces in...

    I have had conversations with too many reefers to list here about this topic..... I have implemented MANY great suggestions like: Water changes, biopellets, NOPOX, nitra-guard bio cubes from orca lab, ran the tank without fish for 12 weeks ( for parasites reasons but still ), starved the system...

    FOWLR system and water

    I'm actuallt more curious than anything as I'll use RO but, to set up a FOWLR system, could we use tap water? I'm on a well. I'm setting up another system and as I'm making water for it I was wondering if we only use RO protect our corals. I can't answer my own question so I came here. Thank you.

    Berghia nudibranchs

    Got some of these little guys from a fellow reefer last week. He took the time to share his experience with them and how to breed them. I noticed coils of eggs this morning but they may have been there for a few days. Just wanted to share a few pictures. They are exceptionally voracious for...

    Newbie remarks

    Still at my baby steps with sps but today I clearly noticed this. About 45 min after a 20 gal water change, I could see polyps on many of my colonies and frags. My system is about 200gal total. Very interesting to see the almost immediate reaction. I change 2 gal automatically every night but...
