    230 Gallon Reef Tank.

    I'm following with interest, looking good. I do have to agree that a pair of chromis in that size tank is alittle odd. You should be think of somewhere along the line of 10-15 chromis, with so such a group they would disperse the aggression that you tend to see in smaller groups. My Lfs has a...

    Dwarf Lionfish Questions

    Dwarf lions are perfectly ok to have in a 50g tank let alone a 75g. You can keep more than one lion in a tank yes, I would say that it will be better if the lions are of different species. A 50g tank will be ok for two to three dwarfs. The 75g you could maybe go for one of the larger species...

    16Gal Sumped Marine Tank

    Because the rock is already alive with the bacteria needed to break down fish waste, hence Live Rock. just because it isnt covered in algae yet doesnt mean its not alive. SW filtration is different to FW filtration.

    16Gal Sumped Marine Tank

    If the rock was Live Rock then you DO NOT need to cycle the tank, It is already cycled. You are doing more harm than good.

    Flake Food For Damselfish?
