  1. WTS Caribsea sand

    Sand is no longer for sale, mods pls close thread thanks
  2. Decomm my old tank, WTS 2L of Caribsea Arga sand. 1-2mm grain sand, see pic for reference. Better for lower flow tanks $5 for both containers. Collection at Buona Vista area. Pls PM if interested thanks
  3. My Slice of Nature (Part 3)

    Nice co2 scrubber! Noticed any pH increase since deploying it? Also, is there any visual indication when it’s depleted? Maybe the pellets will change color or something
  4. 3 months old IM10 1 feet tank

    Welcome! Nice sloping scape! Will be a very visually pleasing scape once it’s filled with corals Can get some LPS which come in many color varieties.. scolys, acans, blastos, even zoas, etc, which are more tolerant to water parameters. Noticed you currently have some SPS, & is that a bird nest colony at the top? With SPS it’s best to maintain stable parameters such as KH, salinity, etc to allow them to thrive
  5. ReefManiac Tank Thread

    Hi there, any updates to your tank?
  6. Amazing! So far the best marine planted aquarium I’ve seen to date! & that gigantic orange sponge is really impressive!! How do you sustain it? Via feeding or just photosynthesis? nice scaping of your macros too, that giant ochtodes rock is something which we don’t see everyday
  7. WTS: zoas

    Hi guys, clearing zoas off my sandbed. Collection at Buona Vista area, pls PM if interested, thanks! red PPE mini-colony. 20+ heads $25 LA lakers. About 10heads. $25 kedd reds. About 10heads. $15
  8. Wow that RBM colony promises to be a showstopper in due time!!
  9. Tank crashing

    Could be possible ich attack.. ich is opportunistic, dormant but manifests itself when the fish’s immune system is lower. They tend to be able to fight it off on their own provided they are not stressed & eating well. So as fuzzlesc mentioned above, have them continue eating & monitor water quality. Small water changes can help, not big ones as that would stress your fishes out further. Hope this helps.. Good luck!
  10. my 1st nano reef tank

    Is something blocking the outlet or inlet? One thing is do is check the pump to ensure is running fine. If the vibration continues, can place some kind of vibration damping pad or cloth between the DT & HOF contact surfaces
  11. 10 days tank on auto pilot

    Sorry for the loss of that acro colony, good to know the rest are ok. 10days is quite a long time though, & we reefers know that so much can go wrong in a blink of an eye: electrical outage, equipment failing, etc can share what you did to fail-safe your tank for these 10days? Did you get a tank-sitter?
  12. Another attempt on Nano Reef

    Sorry for your losses. I always thought that you were running a nice nano tank. It’s interesting to read that LEDs directly contributed to your SPS dying because they weren’t strong enough. Could you share your light settings?
  13. Tuxedo urchin and zoanthid

    Tuxedo urchins are known to attach small items such as rubble or frags, or in your case loose zoas on their backs. Probably as a form of camouflage. It will hold on to it as long as it likes. You can try to slowly pry the zoas loose using a satay stick, but be gentle so as to not injure the urchin & yes they are reef safe hope this helps!
  14. It looks like a vermetid snail. Can scrape it off, the hard surface is its shell. These drop out slime trails into the water that can irritate corals
  15. Yea agree with the bros who have commented above; the sheer volume of Aiptasia would make natural predation or manual intervention an uphill battle. It’s a numbers game, & plus a whole new anemone can regrow from a new fragment. My approach would be to remove the rock, soak in vinegar, then bleach. This guarantees 100% removal of the aiptasia on this rock. Just note that the bleach & vinegar must be done separately, not together as together they generate gases that are dangerous for our respiratory system!!
