    BRS Sale Today Plus Free Money

    I placed my order around 1:30 PM this afternoon...and my order didn't end up shipping today. They must have been completely swamped!! I've got my fingers crossed that I'll end up with some goodies in my box nonetheless.

    Running a DSB pros and cons

    I recommend caution with the oolite sand or any other sand that is similar to a sugar-sized particle. The smaller particle sand does not stay put in higher flow tanks. I know you're considering a few SPS and for the flow that is required you may have issues with the oolite blowing around...

    For Sale Scribbled, Orange Belly Regal and Asfur Angel Trio - getting ready for a move...

    These are a beautiful trio of Angels for sure. How big is the tank they are being kept in? Your tank looks awesome with all of the "invasive" coral. That's an awesome concept for sure! And just curious, why are you parting with them? The tank they're in just too small?

    Candy Cane Coral in Trouble

    I actually have a Space Saver Skimmer that should fit in my sump. I have stand alone pumps for both the Algae Scrubber and the UV filter so I may have to move some pumps around to get all to fit. When I switched back from fish only to coral I never brought the new skimmer online. My old...

    Share your Phyto and/or Pod Culturing System

    I've never heard of this Poseidon system before until Jared just posted that video. Looks awesome! I am also very curious what folks think of it. And Steve, you asked one person but I am also curious what all folks are doing with their cultures. I have a mandarin that I'm thinking about...

    Candy Cane Coral in Trouble

    I'm still struggling with some sort of water chemistry issue. I've been able to get the nitrate levels up via dosing (thanks @Cody!) but not all of my corals have returned to what I consider normal. Looks like I've stopped the dying of my candy canes but they are still not completely happy. I...

    Coral Identification

    I agree with the others. The LPS looks like a 2 tone teal candy cane that is unhappy and ready to split. @Erin, does this look similar to the 2 tone candy cane that you have?

    Getting back into the hobby

    Howdy! Can you help get us in the ballpark of what specific ways you are looking for some help either for your 40g apartment build or for your future large peninsula build? Not knowing what type of tank and system you previously had experience with makes us not sure where/how to help you...

    Topic Marin Salt Mixes

    I will likely go back to the Pro now that BRS has a good supply in stock once I go through this bucket of Classic. But it's nice to know that that the Classic can be a good fall back for when the Pro is out of stock. Also keep in mind that the Pro has the additional trace elements that the...

    Topic Marin Salt Mixes

    Yeah, I was super surprised everything was as high as it was. Before I mixed up the first batch of saltwater I even pulled the bag out of the bucket to ensure the salt was all mixed up itself. Had some Red Sea salt once mix up differently as I continued to use it so I wanted to make sure that...

    That is a very good question that I missed in my original post. I updated the post and yes, mixed it to 1.026.

    Topic Marin Salt Mixes

    I know many of you think that Tropic Marin salt is too expensive. I hear ya, but I still like using it. So this post is really for the folks that use the Tropic Marin Pro-Reef Salt Mix or have been considering testing it out. The last time I bought salt I ended up making the mistake of buying...

    Member Spotlight - October

    Hahaha! Right?! I estimate about 200+ mushrooms. I wish they were fancier looking ones. They definitely make the tank look full of coral but they're just taking up valuable real estate of where I want to put zoas at this point.
