    Powder Blue Tang

    Has anybody ever had a powder blue tang? I have never had one and do not know what to expect if I ever get one. Are they the same care level as Yellow or Dori Tang? I can not just go out and get one like yous can. I have to keep an eye out for one on my London Ont. OR Kitchener OR Missisauga...

    Led Lights

    I hate this and you probably do to. Middle of the day and our led lights want to dim and go to blue light. Then try and reset them to full bright lighting is a pain. Does anybody know any tricks to do this? I have been told that depending on the model they can only be reset at certain...

    Save Naso Tang Nathan

    Hi there I got a pricy Naso Tang today. I have had them before a long time ago. I found that they only lived a few years so just gave up on them. But I am now using rodi water and a lot better water filtration so thought why not give it a shot. He has been in the tank for an hour and seems to...

    Is this a sponge?

    I happen to notice this today. It is in a part of the tank that does not get a lot of light. If it is a sponge that is thriving I might get one of those bright orange ones and have a sponge garden in the rain. I have never had luck with sponges before.

    I think I started this experiment last fall but forget the outcome so will try one more time. I am trying to reduce my nitrates. I have orange flower Isis all over my property. And they can live on not in salt water. As well I have not seen my pest yellow damsel around in a day or two. Will...

    Bypassing my metal water tank will it make my rodi filters last longer?

    I did a partial water change yesterday. I made the water then warmed up the 6 .. 5 gallon buckets. One at a time...It would be so much easier to just use hot water to make my rodi and dump it straight into the tank. But I am thinking that the hot water tank is like 12 years old and probably a...

    Water Conditioner

    Hey I am now using RO water. A store sells one of those big plastic containers for 2 can. which is around 1.50 u.s. to have it refilled. In the past I have been using Lake Huron charcoal filtered tap water. Question is do you think I should still be using a salt water conditioner? I am using...

    Ya sure it is great for your corals and invertebrates but what is it doing to your fish? Has anybody had any problems? I just had a death and suspect the iodine had something to do with it???? It was only week 2 of using it to spruce up my corals. RIP I used recommended dose.

    Emperor Angel

    Has anybody here ever had one? If so what did you feed him? I am feeding mine Tetra Colour along with cut up sea weed from the grocery store. I have had this juvenile for 14 months now and has doubled in size as a guess. But I am starting to think that this might not be enough nutrition. He...

    Are micro bubbles dangerous to marine life?

    I picked up a new hang on the back filter that also has a protein skimmer. Seems to me that red ..1 white stripe clown fish get bubble eye from this... from my years of experience. Then they die. I have reduced the amount of micro bubbles to as less as I can because they are also getting...

    Bristle Worms...To keep or not to keep

    Even though I recently got rid of my crushed coral I did keep lots of live rock in my 125. My Fish like to hide at night when they sleep and makes the tank look nice and interesting. Yesterday while doing a partial water change I got rid of 2 ugly bristle worms... yuckkkk. Then I did some...

    Moorish Idol

    I learned today to never have only one in your tank. I was at a marine coral reef store close to Niagara Canada today and saw 2 for sale. The owner told me they are fine as long as you have at least 2 in your tank. Just one then they will not eat the frozen food and die . The 2 he had...
