  1. Noob questions. Help? (with photos and detail)

    1. Live rock is your bio filter. 2. I would put one big powerhead, or use two small ones, you need good flow because you are planning to have sps. 3. I would let it cycle with the live rock for at least 2 weeks before putting any fish or corals in the new tank.

    Nothing, that gorg is photosynthetic, all gorgs with brown polyps are.

  10. What are your settings on your controller for the temperature? Mine are: If Temp < 76.0 Then ON If Temp > 77.0 Then OFF Since my house stays colder than 70, the heaters on the tank are on and off all the time, should I change the settings to something like on at<76.5 and off >77.0? Is heating the water from 76 to 77 like every hour fine or is it too much temperature fluctuation?
  11. Lower Salinity

    Ok, thank you everyone, I'll take out like a 1/4 G from the DT, and let the ATO replenish the water, and maybe get it to 1.026 tonight, and tomorrow drop it to 1.025
  12. Lower Salinity

    I recently bought a refractometer and my salinity reads at 1.028, and I want to lower it to 1.025. How quick should I lower it? like .001 every hour or everyday? What do you guys recommend?

    Is THIS a good Refractometer? Has anyone used it?
  14. photoperiod for fuge

    I have caulerpa serrulata in my fuge, should I use a 24/7 photo-period or just stick with the 12 hours Im currently doing? BTW, Im also fighting an outbreak of bubble algae in my display tank.
