    Lets talk LED's..............

    Power outage!

    I have never been able to understand how people can spend tens of thousands of dollars and loose tanks because they refuse to spend $1k on a decent generator just boggles my mind.... The Honda EU's are quiet, reliable and very fuel efficient and can be had on CL under $1k

    HELP - Will Agronite Sand Storm hurt fish and brittle star?

    Yes I am well aware of procedure but I let the leaking water on new carpet overide common sense and sanity... Of course I found out the leak was about 3/4 of the way down the tank so I could have taken time for proper procedures :-( That being said the bag said ok to not rinse so now /i just...

OK so my 26 gallon has a leak and in the urgency of things I bought a new 75g tank stand and new agronite sand from Pets Mart (No I don't want to hear about it) Anyways I am moving all of the live rock, sand and...
