    i'm using a refractometer now which reads 1.024. the old hydrometer also reads close to that value, just a bit off towards 1.023. should i do another test using the solution method?

    How To Frag A Fungai Plate Coral?

    i've seen people frag plates by just cutting it with a dremel. they take it to be like a pie and cut out a full quarter (all the way to the centre) and then just leave the two pieces there (separated). the seem to grow back but it takes a really long time

    ah my fault at the ammonia. it should be 0.00ppm which takes it off the blame list. i read somewhere that says bleaching is caused by either light or temperature. my temp's stable at 26 which leaves light. the web also says that for fluorescent tubes to be remotely effective, they need to be...

    Previously Going, Now Went Marine

    got back from camp and dad says the small torch's gone :( the brain doesn't look well at all either. brown jelly hit the hammer and took away half of it before stopping. and the large torch lost one tiny head. my corals seem to be bleaching and i can't figure out why. nitrate: 10ppm nitrite...

    the bubble made me speechless. i've never seen or even heard of a purple bubble. slightly purple yes but not to the extent of yours. is the color like this because of the camera?

    Anemone Tank

    you should expect problems with the clowns in due time when the big one's in charge and the rest fight to be second. can anyone give an ID on the goby picture?

    Josh's Marine Adventure!

    haven't got an idea on the salt but the best you could do now is add a little and test the water again till you get your correct reading

    Salifert Magnesium Kit

    hmm thats odd then. i got my reading on the third try following the instructions and tweaking it a bit. if your mg is really higher then 1500 then two syringes of MG 3 should be able to get a colour change. if not then there may be something wrong with the test kit itself

    Salifert Magnesium Kit

    had the same problem with you but its easily addressed. i think the timings for MG 1 and MG 2 are mixed up. you've got to make sure that MG 2 totally dissolves before adding MG 3. MG 2 will not dissolve in just 10 seconds as stated in the paper. i keep swirling till i don't see solids at the...

    Tina's Nano Journal

    i'm personally thankful my clowns doesn't host my hammer or torch. i've read one too many cases where clown hosting on hammers and frogspawns are problematic for the corals. good choice on the Plerogyra! bubble's are my favorite so far after hammers. i haven't seen a honey colored one though...
