    10 gallon Microreef

    I started a 10 gallon tank and wanted some help. The tank is about two weeks old and has no corals. The surface has build up and foam around the sides. I am using a Fluval C3 for filtration. How do I remove the film on the water and the foam on the sides?

    Looks very similar. I think mines a bit smoother without so many bumps on the branches.

    Jesse, Yes, I am referring to the branching leather coral. I wanted to know the common name of the coral, more than it's just a leather coral. The guy working the shop at the time couldn't figure out what it was, but he knew it was some sort of leather. It has doubled in size within two...

    Here is an update of my 24 gallon nano tank. I no longer have the 12 gallon tank since moving to a new apartment that only allowed me to have one aquarium. I have two fishies living in the tank, a tomato clown and a green clown goby. Can someone tell me what type of coral is sitting on...

    Red Slime Algae

    Coral Life for the bulbs. I ended up using some chemicals to get rid of the slime algae. I can't remember the name of it, but it looks like you are doing a line of coke when dispensing it.

    Red Slime Algae

    The UV light has cleared up my water. The algae isn't growing as aggressively as it was, but it still is growing.

    Red Slime Algae

    I have several different snails: nassarious, bumble bee, margaritas, and club foot. I have one 10000K bulb and one 50/50 bulb in there. The 10000K bulb is a Coral Life bulb. The 50/50 is the stock bulb. Should I do something different? I have a UV light in there now to see if that...

    Red Slime Algae

    I feed the corals photoplankton about once a week. Clean up crew doesn't get fed. Fish gets fed about twice a week with blood worms. I have the stock pump in my tank with the hydor deflector. No skimmer. I use RO water only. Ph is 8.2 Nitrates 0. I don't have test kits for phosphates or...

    Red Slime Algae

    I changed out one of my stock bulbs from my 12 gallon nanocube and replaced it with a 10000K bulb. Now red slime algae grows like crazy. It doesn't matter if I shorten the lighting cycle or if I kill the lights for two days. I even stirred up the gravel and did a vac and it came back...

    New 12 Gallon Aquapod -- Why are my snails dying?

    My hermit crabs like to eat my snails at times. Maybe they are the culprits!

    Actually he did die...:( He suffered for the whole night. I tried to scoop him out the first time and he swam away. So I thought he was okay. Later, he was on the sand bed again. I tried to scoop him out several more times and he swam away. Finally late last night he didn't swim away when...

    Nevermind...He was sleeping... He hasn't attacked my corals yet, but he does occasionally pick on my crabs and snails. He ate one crab as far as I know.

    Hmm...My valentini is dying as of right now. I don't know why either. He was fine this morning. I think maybe he was bullied by the tomato clown...

    Ok, I took care of the aptasia. I injected it with a syringe of boiling water three times and haven't seen it for two days now. I didn't find a body, but I hope it's gone for good.

    Here is one of my 12 gallon. Nothing special, just a FOWLR. I changed out the factory pump for a microjet pump to slow down the current. It has a clownfish and two chocolate chip starfishes. I had just changed out the sand in it after being established for over a year. The sand was getting...

    Help with 24 nano

    I had a question regarding dwarf lion fishes. My lionfish died in my tank a few months ago and ever since, any fish I put into that tank gets ich and dies in a few days. Do lion fishes release toxins into the water when they die? If so, I probably need to change out all of the water. In...
