  1. Distilled Water Vs RO Water?

    Hi Rob, I only use distilled water to top off my tank. I don't have an RO filter and the distilled water from the grocery store works fine. RO and distilled are basically the same thing. Both types of water go through a process which removes all contaminates from the water. I buy Real Ocean water from Petco when I have to do water changes. Hope that helps
  2. They aren't as difficult to keep alive as you may think. Mine is probably the hardiest coral in my tank. As long as you give it plenty of room and your water parameters are good, you should be fine.
  3. Electric Blue Hermit

    I've had no problem w/ my electric blue hermits. I have 2 of them. I thought they were attacking some of my zoas too at first, but they were going after the algae on the rocks. I've had more issues w/ my red & green mithrax crabs pestering my corals than the hermits.
  4. Thoughts on "Natural Sea Water"

    I only use natural sea water and it’s great! It’s definitely a lot more expensive than making my own water, but it’s convenient and the tank is flourishing. Petco sells 5 gallon boxes of it.

    I purchased Stevie T's skimmer cup for the RSM and it rocks! It’s so nice to be able to open the cover w/out the skimmer cup getting stuck! Great design and it works great. Lots of skimmate. I highly recommend this product as well as his media reactor. Thanks Steve!
  6. Lizzie's RSM

    The jbj arctica mini chiller works great with my RSM. You'll want to get the install kit as well. Marinedepot.com has them.

    Check out Stevie T's threads. They detail the Tunze skimmer, mods, and his Media Rack that he makes. Ibought one and it works great. He just finished designing a new skimmate cup that fits better. http://www.nano-reef.com/forums/index.php?...p;#entry1290471

    You buy the TUNZE NANO DOC 9002 for the RSM
  9. Bubble Tip Anemone

    Good to know! I'm not as nervous about it now. Thanks!
  10. Bubble Tip Anemone

    Thanks a lot! I'm glad to know I won't have to wear my hazmat suit when handing the BTA.
  11. Bubble Tip Anemone

    I just purchased a green bubble tip anemone for my clown fish to host and it is arriving tomorrow. Can I place the anemone in my tank with my bare hands or do I have to wear gloves? I have read that they can sting humans and there were warnings that the stinging cells can even cause death?!!! I had no idea they were so dangerous. Has anyone had experience with these? Thanks!

    Stevie T’s media rack delivers as promised. Great design and it fits perfectly in my RSM. Excellent packaging and instructions. I definitely would recommend Stevie T’s product! I can’t wait until his square collection cup design for the Tunze 9002 is perfected. I definitely want to purchase that as well.
