  1. Depends what's your objective of having a refugium. If you research online, there's a lot of debate whether a small refugium is even worth it vs a big one. I recommend watching the below youtube video for more info on refugiums. According to my own experience, i tried using a small HOB breeding box as a refugium for nutrient export on my nano tank (1.5 x 1.2 x 1ft) and growing a small bunch of chaeto inside. Perhaps due to my lighting (just a small LED light), the chaeto grew very slowly and hence didn't create much impact on nutrient export. However, it was a great place for me to grow pods and other micro life. I also used it to acclimatise new livestock or use as temporary storage for corals so i could feed them easier. So to me it did have its uses, just not that great for nutrient export.
  2. Everything taken! Please close thread, mods. Thanks all!
  3. Update: All corals taken. Left with fish only. Thanks.
  4. Update: All corals taken. Elegance pending collection tomorrow Fish still available. Will trap them once someone expresses interest: 4" Coris Wrasse - $30 Feisty fellow, very healthy and eats a lot. May bully smaller fish. For me there's no problem as my clown is equally aggressive and they both came to respect each other. 3" false ocellaris clown - FOC Nothing special, just an average clown, hence giving away.
  5. Elegance reserved. Will update again
  6. Super suns and strange prata reserved. will update again
  7. Ah I see, thats quite a combi. I only use iron and Flourish but not the rest. Will give it a try. Thanks for the tip!
  8. Hi all, sadly my livestock have been suffering months of neglect due to my work commitments and i have been battling algae issues on top of other things. In the interest of the well-being of my livestock, i think i have no choice but to let some of them go as i move the rest to a temporary tank and redo my main display tank. Do note that the corals mentioned here are damaged (have receded, also some algae growth) and hence i am letting them go cheap. If you can restore them to their former glory, more power to you. Maybe I can buy a frag back from you one day when my tank is re-stabilised. The fish are healthy and happy, though. Please come to Pasir Panjang to deal or nearby, as I don't want to risk moving the corals around too much since they're already not doing well. PM me for more info, thanks. 4" Elegance - $15 Used to open almost 1 foot wide but now receded a bit into the skeleton and doesn't open up much any more, sad. Photo taken under actinic, pale purple and green under white light. Unknown prata? - $10 I actually have no idea what this is. Some bros suggested it might be some kind of humble prata. 2 heads super sun coral plus pingpong ball-sized cluster - $10 Actually 3 different super sun species. 1 head of a pure yellow with clear tentacles, 1 head of yellow base, orange head and yellow tentacles. Finally the unfortunate cluster (also yellow, orange, yellow) below is reduced to its skeleton but small polyps still remain. Will have to be fed with reef roids or similar powder foods as the polyps are as small as pin heads. Used to be yellow base, orange head and yellow tentacles 4" Coris Wrasse - $30 He's in the same pic as the elegance coral. Feisty fellow, very healthy and eats a lot. Nothing wrong with him but I'm afraid my temporary tank will be too small for him. May bully smaller fish. For me there's no problem as my clown is equally aggressive and they both came to respect each other. 3" false ocellaris clown - FOC Nothing special, just an average clown, hence giving away. Was hosting the elegance but abandoned it after it started receding
  9. Looking good bro, the only algae I can grow successfully is hair algae hahahahahha [emoji23][emoji23][emoji23]. Even my caulerpa will go sexual every now and then Sent from my E6653 using Tapatalk
  10. I have also done this with feeder fish also, except for fish I try my best to euthanize them quickly by shocking them to death in ice cold water, then removing the obviously diseased ones before I finally marinate with garlic extract and freeze them. Sent from Singapore Reef Club mobile app
  11. If you're not squeamish, what you could try (I did this for my other predators, not lions though) is to buy live feeder shrimp, gutload them with some pellet food, then quickly put them into a plastic bag and throw into the freezer. The freezing will kill any parasites in the shrimp. For added guarantee, you can add seachem garlic extract to "marinate" the frozen shrimp later on to entice your lion to eat. When you need it, just pick one or two shrimp out of the freezer bag, shrimp defrosts quickly. Sent from Singapore Reef Club mobile app
  12. Depends what you mean by algae. What type? Cyano? Sent from Singapore Reef Club mobile app
  13. Hi all, selling my 2ft IOS tank. Measurements are 2 x 1.5 x 1.5 ft. IOS section is generous at about 15 cm deep. Lazy to scrape off the coralline algae so selling cheap at $40. If you want the live sand and one big rock still inside, you're welcome to have it FOC Still has some tiny snails and worms in it. Deal at Pasir Panjang, try to bring a friend as it's quite heavy. Pm me for more details, thanks! Sent from Singapore Reef Club mobile app
  14. I have 2 eunice worms in my tank, each about 1 foot long. Gave up on catching them and just left them alone... Good clean up crew until they reach monster size lol
  15. Hi bro, sorry but your pic is a bit blur, not sure what you're referring to. You mean the small bubbles on the rocks or...? Sent from my E6653 using Tapatalk
  16. Hi bro, no need overhaul lah. Just get a cheap 1 ft plastic tank with cheap bubble filter ok already. Just add in a cave for fish to hide will do. Your tank is a nano so your fish won't be so huge anyway Sent from my E6653 using Singapore Reef Club mobile app
  17. Hi bro, imo you should set up especially if you're planning to buy livestock from LFS because you can never be sure if the fish you buy have any diseases that can wipe out your whole tank. Just a small tank with simple filter will do. If you mainly get from fellow hobbyists it might be less chance of disease since they've been keeping it a while but you can never be sure.

  18. I have some big Brown palys in my tank and my clown goby always sits on them no issue. As long the polyps are not ripped apart or disintegrated, the toxins won't be released. Sent from Singapore Reef Club mobile app
  19. Hi bros, caught this guy in the sand while decommissioning my tank. Looks like some kind of Eunice worm but not sure if harmful. Anyone knows what it is? Thanks! Sent from my E6653 using Tapatalk
  20. Thanks for the advice bros. Actually, being a cheapskate and looking at what the socks look like... I was just thinking how it looks literally like a sock or stocking. Any bros here ever used a stocking as a filter sock instead? Lol Sent from my E6653 using Tapatalk
  21. Hi bros, i have just upgraded my setup to a proper 4 ft with cabinet and sump. With space to properly do maintenance at last, I transferred sand and rock from 3 different tanks into the 4ft but of course ended up crating a huge cloud storm of dirt. I used filter wool with the sump but i realised that while it traps detritus very well, i have to take out the wool to rinse all the gunk out every 2 days and while doing that, i end up releasing some of the dirt back into the system that clouds up the water and it feels like i'm slapping myself. Hence I'm thinking of using a filter sock to make my life easier, but have no experience with them and am not sure what micron size is too big or too small. Any recommendation for a micron size that will effectively trap small detritus particles? Thanks for the help!
  22. Wow bro, on a positive note your tank is super condusive for softies. Maybe just take out all and sell off. Do you have a lot of detritus buildup that's hording nutrients somewhere? Sent from my E6653 using Tapatalk
  23. Hi bro, just to feedback that there's too many fish in a tank that size, so the risk of fish getting sick is very high as they will feel stressed. I would say 5 small fish is the max number you can go. Also, ribbon eels are notorious for being very difficult to care for. You may wish to use this site to reference how many fish to keep for your tank size. It helps calculate compatibility etc. http://www.marinecompatibilityguide.com Sent from my E6653 using Tapatalk
