    Innovative Marine 10 Gallon

    I wish I could take mines off. I tried it before but it didnt work. One jumped out. I hade one with the lid and one without the lid jump out. For some reason they love sleeping at the top of the water.

    Innovative Marine 10 Gallon

    So I have IM 10 gallon tank and one of the flaws I see with the tank is the top/lid of the tank. I have had two clown fish jump out the tank due to the gap on the side. I was wondering if anybody else is having this issue? I was thinking about replacing the lid with some egg crate that can cover the top of the tank.

    Corals

    I am about to add the first corals to my 10 gallon. When I use to stay in Minneapolis I usually just go to a local fish store or somebody houses to buy frags but now since I dont stay in a big city anymore I cant do that anymore. I am looking for the best bang for your buck corals online. I checked out places like live liveaquaria but I feel like they are wayyy overprices for frags. I even looked on ebay but I dont know if I trust ebay or not.

    RODI Water TDS rising

    Wow i have learned alot from these post. The bucket is just a normal bucket I got from a hardware department store called Mernades. Its just a regular bucket you can mix or store things in.I didn't know anything about food grade or HDPE buckets. I thought a bucket was a bucket lol. So its a good chance the bucket could be leeching something in the water. I have been doing this for months now and everything in my tank is healthy but I will look into buying another bucket. I was looking into a reservoir but I dont understand why its the sames price as a fish tank lmao

    RODI Water TDS rising

    So I am having a head scratching issue that is going on. When I put fresh RODI water in my top bucket. Within days the TDS rises alot. From 0 to 100. I am storing it in a bucket I got for the hardware store. Just a regular bucket 5 gallon bucket. Nothing special about it. I see people use these buckets for tops offs all the time. Can this water harm my fish? I guess its been ok because this has been going on for weeks. What can be the cause of this and how can I prevent it from happening?

    Mixed Clownfish

    So I have a Snowflake and Picasso Clown. The snowflake is the female and Im sure the Picasso is a male now. The snowflake was super aggressive to the Picasso but I fixed that by accidents by rearranging my aquascape and also had to take a rock out due to flow issues. They are bonding now and actually can be by each other. I almost sold the Picasso because I felt bad for him. He would go hide because he was scared. The snowflake was super aggressive. She even bit me. So now that they are bonding and if they ever spawn, what will the fish be called? I been trying to find pictures online but I can't find them anywhere.

    Removed Live Rock

    I put a little back in there. I still have alot in there but the water flow is alot better. I was having issues with my snowflake picking on my Picasso but after I changed some stuff last night they are best friends. They are doing their little clownfish dance with each other. I am going to be doing a water change every other day for a couple weeks until everything is stable.

    Removed Live Rock

    So I have IM Marine 10 gallon and I just removed half of the live rock tonight because I was having water flow issues. I also notice my water volume wasn't that high. I would guess I probably was only getting 6 to 7 gallons with all the live rock. Now since I removed it I notice water volume and the water flow is great. My question is , will anything be affected by the removing of the live rock? I know im removed some good bacteria from the tank but it still two piece of live rock(nice size) and sand.

    RODI System

    Yea its always something on their site you want to buy

    RODI System

    I was using distilled water which is .89 a gallon which can get expensive after a while. I only have a 10 gallon so I didn't think I needed a RODI system. I have already made $20 dollars worth of water in couple of days. So its a big difference. I store my water in the old distilled water jugs I had lol.
