    So i've actually been doing some research on mantis shrimp and now understand peoples obsessions with them! Some view them as pests while others as pets.

    Uv Sterilizers

    I'm just doing a little reasearch on some additional items that could make the system more stable. What effect does a uv sterilizer have on a tank? Does it just help keep the water looking super clear or are there other effects to stabilize chemistry. Ive got a chance at getting a 15w for a...

    Grayscale's 55G Peice Of Paradise

    For about the past 6 months I have been considering a marine reef tank. I've gone from planning on converting my 10g FW tank, to converting my FW 20g long tank, to finally deciding on a 55 US gallon with a 20g long sump! :D This will be a slow setup over the next few months and by April I should...

    Assassin Snails And Plants

    Will assassin snails eat live plants? I'm starting to get a grossly large population of pond snails that I'd like to take care of with the assassin snails but I will look into an alternative if they eat my plants. I do have watersprite and I know snails love it.

    Quite The Suprise!

    So I rescaped my 20g long for my biotope and moved all of my CPDs and red cherry shrimp into it from my 10g. It's been about 2 weeks and I've pretty much stripped my 10g down to just a peice of bogwood, some java moss and 2 java ferns. One day my girlfriend was looking into the still running but...

    Hob Skimmers

    I know I've been creeping around the salty side of the forums for a couple of weeks asking how to convert my 10g into a nano reef. After further thinking once I move I think I want to go a little bigger, 55g! 48"x13"x20" with a 20g long (30"x12"x12") sump. I am planning and drafting my own...

    I noticed that the marine section has a "coral of the week". I was wondering if maybe we could do something like this for plants so people can share their experiences with specific plants and general growing parameters, trimming, etc.

    10Usg Nano Reef Lighting

    Currently I have a 10g tank that was just emptied and was thinking of what I could do with it and decided that I want a nano reef. My girlfriend disagrees because of the cost but I think she'll understand when it's all said and done. Alright enough with the rambling. It's currently just got...

    Ceratopteris Thalictroides

    I was wondering if these can be trimmed in any way? From what I've read the only way to keep these at bay is by taking the plantlets and replanting them in place of the mother plant but I just wanted a second opinion.
