    My Swallow Angel has a giant bubble-eye

    What's going on? Nothing new has been introduced lately and I'm sure that no one picks on her.

    I'm throwing in the towel

    Right now I'm cutting off flake foods completely. I'm gonna order the phospahte test also. I put a 2400 gph return pump in the tank itself yesterday. It looks like a blizzard of algae in there right now.

    I'm throwing in the towel

    Clean as far as Ammonia, Nitrite, and Nitrate. Normal pH. I don't have a test for phosphate. Do they even make one that's reasonably priced?

    I'm throwing in the towel

    Thanks for jumping in, lando. As I understand it, the tank has a hole drilled through the bottom of the tank where a pvc tube can be attached to the top and bottom of the glass. The bottom leading to the sump and the top extending to the surface of the water. In my mind, this is the preferred...

    I'm throwing in the towel

    The only potential problem is the lack of flow in the tank. I changed the lights a few mon ths ago to see if that would help (the old ones were only about 9 months old (PC). I upgraded to a Remora Pro skimmer. I've been pulling algae out manually for months. I replaced the bulb and cleaned...

    I'm throwing in the towel

    I've surrendered to algae. I can't stop it. It's growing in huge chunks everywhere. It's choked out my corals. What's weird is that at one time I had absolutely NO algae whatsoever. I've left the lights off for 4 consecutive days now. I do have plans for the rebirth, however. I'm moving...

    Product review - AquaC Remora Pro

    Agreed. Luckily I have a 30 gallon reservoir in the next room that refills the tank everyday on a timer. If I didn't have this, the prefilter would have been a complete waste of money. The only way I would suggest this product is without the prefilter box and using metal hose clamps in place...

    Product review - AquaC Remora Pro

    $270 with optional pre-skimmer. I opted for the Mag3 pump. My first reaction was that I just paid $300 for a plastic box and powerhead. Hey, I'm all about simplicity so if it works, I'm fine. The unit is a quality construction and a simplistic overflow cup adjusted with a rubber ring. I...

    Awesome find! Help me identify

    I think you're right, Fluff. I don't think he made it though :cry:

    Awesome find! Help me identify

    I added some more live rock to my Fluval canister filter. The canister has been operating with nothing in it for about 6-7 months (except live rock). When I opened the lid it was completely alive with pods, worms - even some apstasia anemones which I never remember having (and don't live in...

    Fish hiding = Tank looks boring

    My fish all have a place where they sleep at night. As soon as the daylights go off it starts to settle down in the tank - and after the actinics go off every fish is in it's spot - usually a hiding place between rocks. Most are dug out like nests. I would never get rid of hiding places. Try...

    Live Rock curing - is this possible?

    I scrubbed it pretty well, but I can see now I obviously missed a little here and there. The rock did smell fairly bad when I first got it (of course I have no point of reference to exactly how bad "bad" is). The smell is almost entirely gone now, however.

    Why are damsels not appreciated?

    I had full intention of keeping mine - until they harassed every other fish in the tank.

    Live Rock curing - is this possible?

    I recently recieved 50 lbs of Caribbean live rock over Ebay. It took about 4 days to ship and was sold as "uncured" but it actually looked very nice when I saw it. I scrubbed the dead parts away and placed it in a 45 gallon aquarium with excellent flow (2 return pumps maybe 1300 gal/hr total)...

    Once everything is set, this hobby gets a little boring...

    Move to SW - you won't get tired. I've had the tank set up for 14 months now and I still find new life. and the amount of money and time you'll spend will keep you from losing interest...

    Walmart online digital print services

    They'll also duplicate copyrighted wedding proofs. I hate copyright law. Kudos to Walmart!

    someone broke into my car last night.....aaargh

    I remember around Chicago there was a bar owner who was being robbed nearly every month. They were breaking a street level window and crawling in. The owner put bars inside the window and hooked up a 440 amp charge to them. They found the perpetrator dead outside the window. The bar owner...
