    palytoxin question - mohawks

    I just started up back in the hobby - and saw some threads related to palytoxins being a thing. the second coral into my new tank was some mohawk palys/zoas that were given to me. Are all palys bad, are these mohawks bad? the risk seems low, but at least want to be aware of the potential since its not just me in the house.

    wow strange. there is no way the 16mm adapter is fitting on there, the holes are roughly the same size..

    anyone have experience with VCA RFG on the nuvo 10? I ordered the 16mm adapter - per BRS site recommendation - but it seems to be too small. perhaps i need the 19mm? not sure if thats too big though

    xenia dying 1st coral after cycle

    thanks - i was using it mainly to see if the tank was ready for other corals. looking to get some mushrooms/euphyllia (frogspawn,hammer), is xenia just finicky or you think this is a sign to wait awhile still

    xenia dying 1st coral after cycle

    hm i don't have a phosphate check, nitrate shows between 0 and 5ppm. Looks like the small part on the left side is also changing color but the big stalk (its actually 2) seems ok
  8. Hey all - my cycle finished last week, everything tested 0, I did a 20% water change. I put in a frag of xenia that my friend gave me to see how it would do, it was doing well up until 2 days ago when it seems to be starting to die off slowly. First the little piece on the left went, now the right one in the picture, the biggest parts are doing ok but seems like just a matter of time. I have clownfish and CUC also in the tank, seem to all be doing fine.

    thanks for the input - looks like i'll still with the g3 - recommend using the diffuser? or is it mainly for aesthetic purposes

    help me decide light for nuvo 10

    i bought a nuvo 10 and it came with a radion XR15 G3 pro - but in my local forum I saw a brand new nanobox mini tide fs that i like the sleek look of. Any opinions on which light can offer better coral growth? I also know the G3 is an older model and not as good as the G4..so longevity is also a consideration if I should just sell the G3 before it gets to be out of date.

    Looks like your using the .5, does that have a smaller output nozzle than the 1.0? @logicalreefs thanks, ordered some .5ID tubing, took the spinstream apart - it seems like the clicking happens when the rods shift cause there is extra space where they sit and when the gears turn to a certain point it moves it. it does seem a little quieter after taking it apart though.

    hey all - just started a nuvo 10. got a sicce 1.0, does anyone know what type of tubing to use to connect to the elbow which seems a bit smaller? also i'm using the 1.0 with a spinstream, anyone have recs on how much to dialback the pump if its too strong? sidenote..really hoping the spinstream clicking noise goes away on its own if not might have to try the RFG.
