    What the PH...?

    Once I added the awesome package of live rock from TBS the tank cycled quickly and PH adjusted on it's own. We're good to go. Thanks for your reply

    How much live rock?

    Most people suggest 2 pounds per gallon. That's the formula I'm going with anyway. Good luck.

    What the PH...?

    Getting the new reef rolling. PH measured low at 7.8 so I added some buffer to raise that up... or so I thought. Tested this evening a day later and it dropped it to 7.4? Frustrated. I want to add some rock to get this thing cycled but I can't even get my water where it needs to be. Any...

    Tank Talk

    What do you have? What would you buy if you could afford it? I'm looking at the Red Sea or the JBJ rimless. If and when I get this reef going it will most definately be an AOI so my wife can sleep at night. Does anyone have that JBJ 45? What are the pros and cons? Just curious what you...

    School project

    The single emerald crab we have is doing an amazing job. The mexican turbos are going crazy on everything else. It's cleaning up nicely. We suffered our first loss unfortunately - the coral beauty angel was swimming erratically from the beginning, bobbing up and down etc.... then we added the...

    We have some "Medic" solution water conditioner from Polyplab. Has anyone tried this product? They boast a reef safe parasite treatment. I think I'll give it a shot to see if I can lick any future fish loss.

    He has been goofy since the first day. No spots, he was eating fine then he decided to give up the ghost. Anyone see bloating like that though? I've never seen it
