  1. Clownfish with popeye, not eating

    sprinkle some epsom salts in the tank. Its cured popeye for my clown twice..
  2. would you recommend the "white" or "blue" system?
  3. I know 2 will do it but im trying to get away with just one if i could. $300-$400 isnt terrible $600-$800 is a bit much but do know it will pay for itself overtime.
  4. tank is 30 breeder and only 12" deep. PLan to keep mostly SPS. Only issue I see is my scape is designed as two islands with sand in between directly in middle if tank. I would really need about 30" of coverage
  5. quick question about your light. Im interested in the same but have a 36"long tank. Would one light be enough spread or would your suggest two based on how your light looks. Thanks
  6. Basic cycle questions...

    I have a quick questions as well. Planning a 30 Breeder SPS tank. I want a few blue green chromis and thats it for fish. Should I add fish after tank cycles and corals second? or corals first when water is cleanest then fish later?
  7. Good light/deal?

    ya im nervous about spending $100, having issues, then having to spend almost $250 to get something good. Maybe just get the good light now. Thanks guys
  8. Good light/deal?

    http://cgi.ebay.com/17-24-Metal-Halide-T5-...#ht_4264wt_1141 Is this a good light for a 20L. I plan to keep SPS
  9. Aquaclear 50 Refugium

    http://reefcentral.com/forums/showthread.php?s=&threadid=601201 above is a link that explains the conversion and is illustrated by images. This is what I followed. I did not add the light as seen in the images. I added a reptile clip on light fixture to the back of the tank that hangs a few inches above the fuge. I have a 6500K, low wattage light from Home Depot. Have not checked phosphates. Need to do this. No algea problems in tank just fuge..?? I only run the lights 7a-7p and cheato seems to be growing fine. Dont want to light to leak into display at night
  10. Aquaclear 50 Refugium

    I converted by AC50 into a small fuge as well. Its been running for about a month. I was told I have enough rock in display that I don't need rubble in fuge. I have a baffle area that holds floss. I placed chemi-pure elite on bottom with a ball of cheato on top. Have seen a slight decrease in nitrates from 20 to 15. Now I have an unfavorable algea outbreak. looks like a combo of diatoms and cyano. fuge runs from 7a to 7p. any advice??
