    backing for a tank

    Hmmm... I forget the exact color I used. I'll look to see if I have the can still when I get home tonight. Generally, the darker the blue the better. Black is also nice, and you don't have to worry about which shade. ;)

    backing for a tank

    A solid color, either blue or black, makes a good backdrop for your fish and corals. Paint seems better than a sheet because it doesn't fall off, and you don't have to worry about drips getting between the sheet and the glass. It might be a little cheaper, but that wasn't really a deciding...

    Close. Elegance coral. It does host my clowns. :D

    Nice shot, Damsel. It's not easy to catch 4 fish at once like that. Here's some more, of my 29 gallon seahorse tank...

    Marine Betta?

    Hmmm?:confused: Just as my initial research showed, I guess. You're not supposed to keep them with smaller fish or shrimp, but the few personal accounts from keepers say that the Betta never bothered their smaller critters. I guess I just have to recognize that I'm taking a chance, and base...

    Marine Betta?

    Hi Folks, I'm looking for advice on whether I should give a marine betta a try. I saw a nice specimen at the LFS yesterday, and put a hold on it, but now am unsure whether I should try it. It's a bout 5" long with the fins. I have an AGA125 reef with lots of LR. Inhabitants include 1 5"...

    Favorite Fish??

    I think the psychedelic mandarin is just awesome. If only I could find one that would eat prepared foods. :(

    Monti cap. question

    I wouldn't worry about it messing up your tank if it dies. I'd put it low in the tank for a week or so so it can reacclimate to your lights, than move it up a few inches at a time 'til it's back where you want it. I don't give up on stonies until they're covered in corraline.

    Kalk and Vinegar? Better?

    Maybe you're right, but why would he recommend a starting point that isn't likely to dissolve the extra kalk?

    Kalk and Vinegar? Better?

    Perhaps you're right. I don't really care enough to do that testing, as I have no trouble meeting my demands with less than saturated limewater. However, since 2 tsp should dissolve into a gallon of water with no help from vinegar, I'm having a hard time believing that 3tsp won't dissolve with...

    What kind of superglue do I get???

    Loctite gel seems to be the best, IMO.

    Kalk and Vinegar? Better?

    If the goal is to dissolve more kalk in a given volume of water, the dose should be 15ml per tsp of kalk. This will provide enough CO2 via the vinegar to convert all of the hydroxide in the lime into bicarbonate. Using that dose, you should now be able to dissolve up to 3 tsp of solid kalk...

    What's wrong with this Scolymia???

    Thanks. My biggest problem is keeping the tankmates from eating the food before the coral can fully ingest it. I've started using a feeding hat made from the top of a 2 liter bottle to keep the shrimp and fish away. The only problem is, if this works and the coral rebounds and gets any...

    What's wrong with this Scolymia???

    Thanks for the advice Anthony. Will try to ramp up the feeding.

    What's wrong with this Scolymia???

    Thanks Anthony. I run carbon 24/7, as well as 10% wcs every other week, and have never noticed any difference in the coral after changing carbon or water. I do try to feed it often, but since this problem developed it hasn't been able to eat much, what with the strange growth/debris right in...

    What's wrong with this Scolymia???

    I've had this scolemia for about 9 months now, and have seen somewhat of a steady decline. The first symptom I think I noticed was a gaping of the mouth, accompanied by mesanterial filaments indside the mouth, starting about 6 months ago. There's also some deterioration of the tissue...
