    Starting Fresh (29G Tanks)

    That sounds good to me, Make sure you add the firefish and clown goby before the clownfish. Also I think margarita snails prefer lower temperatures so you might want to skip that one.

    Llj's 8G... Yuma/zoanthid Garden

    Read the whole thing. Looks good. :) Didn't realize the forum had such a mantis obsession, reminds me of SkiFletch. :D Did you ever get the aquaclear converted? Can you give more details on the procedure to convert it to a refugium? Thanks!

    Info On The Salty Side :)

    I can answer a few of your questions. Generally the best size for starters is around 50-100 gallons. 24gallons will be a bit difficult to maintain water quality, and you're pretty limited with fish selection, but it's doable. Larger tanks will be more expensive to set up initially, but you have...

    Well it's about time I update this... I spent a lot of my time this summer teaching my mom to take care of the tank, in preparation for when I left for college. She learned enough that I was confident that my fish would be in good hands... A week after I leave for college, hurricane irene goes...

    Burrowing Fish - Id?

    Hi guys. :) Nearly a year ago I got some plants from my LFS and found that a fish had hitchhiked along with them. It looked like a small pleco or some kind of algae eater. It was obviously a bottom feeder, so i just tossed it in the tank (29g peaceful community) and forgot about it. Fast forward...

    29G Low Tech

    I've had them just as long as the other fish, though. The guppies were floating at the top. One of the gourami's was being eaten by the kuhli loaches, and I know they didn't kill it. Also the fish died during the day, and the UD catfish hardly move in the daytime. Actually I don't even see them...

    29G Low Tech

    No idea. The fish started dieing before the dosing... :unsure: The excel does seem to be working, but I don't know if the affected leaves are going to recover, even though the algae is gone. They're still kind of brown and semi-transparent... ...What's hydra? :unsure:

    29G Low Tech

    I've been adding flourish excel daily according to the directions on the bottle, until yesterday. I found a dead shrimp and another dead gourami. :unsure: So I skipped a day of dosing.

    Algae Help.

    It's invasive, unsightly, and clogging my powerheads. :/ It's on almost every rock, and like I said, the xenia is starting to grow over the algae instead of on the rock, and then the algae breaks off and the coral gets lost. And I can't find the little card that shows the directions for my...

    Algae Help.

    20-30% Water change once a month. I know it should be less water more often but I've been busy. I'll try to do water changes more often. I'll test the water later tonight.
