    What is this in my reef???

    i think we can all agree, that without a better picture, none of us can be sure. i've seen really big copepods, and most amphipods have an arched back structure... but we're all just guessing what these blurry smudges are. lets get a better photo OP.

    they're copepods. they're a sign that your tank is in good health. you want to keep them. some fish will eat them. free fish food.

    Heres my tank. I started dosing after finding out my Calcium had dropped to 250 and now everything is growing like weeds. i love it. SPS is taking off and my montipora caps have all gained their color back!

    Bristleworm sting

    ive done the vinegar solution like you mentioned, ive also used the white glue method where you put glue on the bristles, let it dry, and then peel it off. i always keep a box of gloves next to the tank if i have to move something. its much easier.

    IM Nuvo Lagoon 25 Owners Thread

    interesting. typically IM phases out their old products right before they launch something new and improved. I love my lagoon 25 so i wouldn't worry about your purchase. that being said, if you want to wait, i bet you have time to cancel your order and wait to see what happens.

    IM Nuvo Lagoon 25 Owners Thread

    its been running since friday and i have to say, i really like it. While breaking it in i had a period of micro bubbles in the tank, but that went away after about a day. Its not exactly a quiet skimmer, but its not loud either. i wouldn't want it next to my bed, but when our tv is on in our living room i cant hear the skimmer over the TV. i have dialed it in and its pulling dark skim, not pasty, but still darker than the tea colored water more skimmers pull. The skimmer is kind of a tight fit, the magnetic mount doesn't fit the chamber though. thats my only real complaint.

    i ran mine without a lid and only had to fill my 5g ATO jug once every 2 weeks or so. it was pretty minimal.

    Reef Roids in Nano tank

    i had the same issue when i did broadcast feeding. now that i target feed i no longer have that problem. use a 10ml syringe and it'll make everything a lot easier and cleaner.
