How does a fish come out of a cucumber?? Will this fish be a menace of some sort, or is it just another wormfish? If it's a wormfish, I don't give it a good chance of survival because I doubt it's...

How did I miss this 3" fish?

We recently (yesterday) added a few things to our tank. We added some snails of various sorts, hermit crabs, emerald crabs, three sand-sifting cucumbers, and a peppermint shrimp. It was just your...

The SG is about 1.0205-1.021. It seems to have plenty of water in it. It's about a year old at this point.

You need to cycle your tank. Go to the grocery store, buy some shrimp, throw them in the tank, and watch your ammonia/nitrite/nitrate levels. When your ammonia and nitrites both go up and drop back...

Protein skimmer not burping much out

Hi, guys... it's been a while. :)

I have an AquaC EV180 with a Mag 5 on my tank. It seems to be working, except it doesn't burp anything out. At first I was noticing a serious lack of the...

My mind is made up. I don't rellish the thought of spending that much money, but I do rellish the thought of the peace of mind. I'm not looking for a home-brew solution or any way to cut a few...

Buying a Chiller

I'm definitely buying a chiller in the next few days. I know that a lot of you think that swamp boxes, fans, etc. are the way to go. I, on the other hand, prefer peace of mind and not having to...

I can arrange that. I'll have to change the timing on the lights so they come on after I get home from work. I am usually only able to notice this on the weekends.

Anyone?



Oh, and I bought some PO4 sponge last night. We'll see how things look when I get home. It said it would work within hours.

I had heard that 0.25 ppm PO4 was not bad, but I did doubt what I was hearing since I had eliminated so many other possible causes. If you think that it is enough, then I'll take your advice and get...

Which Chiller?

I have been considering building my own chiller, but as it doesn't seem feasible, I guess I'm going to buy one. My tank is simply too warm. However, I can't seem to find any good information on...
