Sosa posted a topic in Beginners Discussionhi all ! I just got back into reefing after 16yrs away from reefing! My last tank was a 800 gallon reef with 2 250 w iwaski halides and compaq flos. i know old school light setup does anyone still use halides? I still have a ica cap ballast ! And a bulb! 100 gal refuge sump. This setup was about mid 2000s i had a full on reef .sold everything got out of the reef scene. Back then the net was just starting and most of the info was trial and error talking to old school reefers.etc. Wow i cant believe all this new tech. Led lighting. Wavemakers. Cheap Dosers Everything has improved not everything i see heaters are still crap. And corals are so expensive now wow $50 for a mushroom just 1 lol. Designer clown fish ! Wow I use to pay $5 for 3 mushrooms. Now im back! this time a 15 gall tall. I also started a fluval flex 9 gal reef as well the flex is more of a obervation tank for livestock for the 15gal. who know s i might make it into a soft coral tank. I know the 15 gal tall tank.

hi everyone, one of my stomatella snails keeps falling off the rock, I've found him on the sand upside down about 3 times today and that's not like him at all. most times he's just hiding underneath a crevice in the rock he likes. please help I don't want anything to happen to him! edit: i noticed one of his antennas or feelers or I'm not sure what u call them, one of them is shorter than the other I'm not sure if that could be a factor or something
