    New Marine Keeper Need Help Please

    no filtration on a 2.5gal

    Usually power filters are used for water flow, even without media inside, not powerheads. Powerheads are more expensive, take place in the tank and are very noticeable. You can make refugium type of tank, with almost no feeding. Biological filtration will be processed by sand and LR...

    Baby Niger Trigger?

    Hi! While I don't have a trigger, I have another large fish and they grow really fast: within half of year from thumbnail to a palm size, hand size - within one year. I had to buy big tank in 7 months. Another factor: length of the tank. Fish, except sitting on the rock and wiggling kinds...

    New growth on Sun Coral?

    No, this is a sponge growing, it helps somehow with filtration. Or you may remove it with fingernail or rounded tweezers. New growth for sun corals looks like new small polyps budding in between the old big polyps, and the yellow tissue encrusting the base. Sorry for the late reply :mrgreen:

    GTA area? (Canada)

    Is anybody here from Greater Toronto Area, Ontario, Canada? I thought that it would be nice to have a thread for local trades or sales. Tanks, for example, do not ship well, so do some creatures. Just a thought. I'm currently interested in finding the rimless 6g 60 cm (2 ft) long tank with...

    Fish for a 3.8 gal nano

    I read somewhere, that panda goby prefers pocillopora. Then tank should have reasonably high light, 36W maybe. You may check by goby species name.

    Electricution ?

    Sorry to hear this. What brand was heater? You will see. Closely watch tank for a few days, remove corpses. Ceck ammonia - it may spike after several hours of decomposing. By test kit, not Ammonia Alert. In emergency ammonia could be neutralized by tap water conditioners, like Amquel Plus...

    Instruction says to seal all mouth, but provided syringe squirts much more at once, covering all oral disk and making high blob. By the way, treat as much as possible art once - even at reasonable amounts - makes water smell as milky fluid of some plants, cucumbers closed for some time, weak...

    Red Sea Aiptasia X, anyone else try it??

    Just tried Aiptasia X yesterday. 2/3 of the aiptasia are dead, but it will re-grow from the stump. The same effect, as after kalkwasser paste. After Joe's Juice my super aiptasias came back.
