    I can't get Nitrates down!

    I had the same problem. I just emptied the entire tank, scrubbed it, rinsed the bottom, then refilled it

    Yes this is dumb

    Can I DIY a blue light filter?

    It will be very dim

    Floating rock?

    I would never do this, but if you glued some bits of live rock to some pumice and let it float in your tank, wouldn't you have a floating reef?
  6. I've had cysts hatch in my algae culture. The salinity is at 0.027 (I don't know what the units are called)

    Wild Sea Nem, Help!

    Is the tank cycled? If you live near the beach, you could leave the anemone somewhere you can find it until the tank is cycled. Or set up a second tank, and let that cycle, and keep doing water changes for the tank with the anemone.
  8. I have brine shrimp in my tank. They just get stung repeatedly and die. The big ones often die far away from whatever stung them, too. If you add a dunaliella culture or something, you'll be able to keep the brine shrimp fed, but you might get an algae bloom

    WTB: Aiptasia Mutabilis

    I know this is kind of late, but Carolina Science sells aiptasia

    Full Spectrum Lights

    I've been using a regular LED (not meant for aquariums) but I want to try coral. Will the LED work, or do I need the specialized reef lights?

    Full Spectrum Lights

    What's the difference between a full-spectrum light like this: https://www.amazon.com/Morsen-Spectrum-Flexible-Gooseneck-Greenhouse/dp/B06XZ29G31/ref=sr_1_15?s=lawn-garden&ie=UTF8&qid=1537639879&sr=1-15&keywords=full+spectrum+led+grow+light&refinements=p_36%3A-4000 and a full-spectrum light for reefs?
  14. If you use the hydrometer several times does it give the same result? If it's not salinity, maybe an invert died?
