    20g Long Setup

    I am currently trying to setup a 20G long reef tank. I want to have the tank FULL of lps such as torches, hammers, and frogspawn but I can't go without an anemone. I've had my 10g for about 2 and a half years and want something better. I am mainly contemplating between an AI Prime HD or a pair of Kessil A80 for lighting. Also, what would you recommend for a filter? It will be sitting on a breakfast bar as the center of attention. I wouldn't mind a small canister as long as it isn't really loud. I don't want to skimp but I don't want to be unreasonable. I also don't know where to start for a power head. Seems like everything is overpowered for a 20g. What other equipment/hardware would you recommend? Any advice is greatly appreciated!

    Need Anemone ID Help

    This anemone was sold to me as a BTA. I know first hand that not all bta's bubble, but this does not look like a normal bta. I was thinking maybe a LTA but I thought those would only stay in sand and this one has stayed in the same spot for a few days now. The column is beige with florescent green streaks in it, the disc looks purple under my lighting and the foot is beige. Either way it likes my tank and it's already hosting one of my clownfish
  3. I made a post a few days ago in My IM 20g flower flower farm that Something was funky with one of the baby RFA born in the tank.....I realize how rare this would be & how improbable to find in the tank so I'm still not 100% that this is actually what it is.......Anyway.... I think it is a Siamese twin with two heads! I'm about 85-90% sure. I saw a post on another form about an adult green RFA someone bought that would not attach because it had a parasitic twin attached to its foot so a Siamese twin would have to be just as possible. Its soooo small its very hard for me to tell 100% at this point. (if it isn't it's still strange & interesting that they would hold onto each other like that) At first I thought it was just two that were holding onto one another but after very gently trying to get them to separate & watching hem attach & hold on with what looks like the same oddly oval shaped foot I do think this is what I have going on....Even stranger they started out pure white but seem to be developing color at different rates. One has a brown/orange face & the other is whitish. I'm starting this thread to keep track of its development & health to see if it is actually two & if it separates. Its so tiny I'm hoping I don't loose it. I wonder if they will develop different colors & if its male or female or both! I estimate that it is about a week old. The heads are about half the size of one of its siblings from this same batch one is slightly smaller than the other but the foot is about the same size as the others. Ok interesting I found ANOTHER "twin" & this time there is no question what this one is. It is larger about twice the size of this one with both heads the same color two heads one body. One is head a little smaller than the other one. They are the same color & closer together that is why I did not notice before. What genetic oddness is going on in this tank..? Most of my rfa are sourced from different places at different times & none of the adults were born in this tank & there so I don't think its inbreeding. Siamese twin(?) #1 Siamese twin #2
  4. Hi, I've kept saltwater tanks and fish for a while and now am beginning to get into reef tanks. I purchased my first bit today but am not sure exactly what it is. Is it a bubble-tip anemone? (It's in the middle of the photo and it came attached to a small pink/purple/green rock. Each of its 'tentacles' are no bigger than about 0.5cm long. Also I tested all its water parameters that it came in the bag with to compare it to my tank water and it was all almost identical except the pH in the bag was 8.8 and mine in the tank was 8.2, is this too different and should I increase my one? I've read different things online and not sure what is correct. Also the green weed/plant in the photo on the bottom left had grew on its own, I don't think it is a type of coral but a seaweed. The picture is here: https://ibb.co/sR2Y9Ms thank you.

    Does my RBTA dying?

    So my RBTA has been shiverled up like this for a while now. From time to time, it would expand normally, but about a week ago, it hasn't expanded once. Maybe it is dying or it just something they do. I'm currently put it in a quarrantine box so the clown won't bother it.

    Help Id Anemone

    Please I need help id this anemone for I am a newbie. I bought it online and the seller told me this is mini anemone. But seeing it for myself, I doubt it's mini anemone, search it online and I'm convinced this is carpet anemone. If this is carpet anemone, I want to return it to the seller or I want to give it to anyone who wants to adopt and care this cute creature. My tank only 6g definitely not suitable for her.

My tank has been already 'built', however I thought I would try to share photos of how it matures, even if it is only for my own entertainment. Having previously fallen in love with the freshwater hobby over a year ago, I'm not particularly experienced, however I like to think I've learnt a lot since starting. I was first attracted to the saltwater hobby over a year ago, when I discovered the first marine lfs where I live. I instantly fell in love with the 'more colourful' fish, and I thought that corals would certainly be far too hard! Fast forward to March this year, and being in Australia, I had been spending a lot of time at home. Eventually my girlfriend allowed me to get a second tank if that was what I kept to. I'm proud to say its stayed at two tanks for the time being! In April, I picked the Waterbox 10 at my local lfs because I liked the cube shape, and the AIO nature of it, and I thought it would be a reasonable place to start in the saltwater hobby. After consulting my lfs, I bought everything that was needed, setting it up with: - 5 kgs Caribsea Dry Rock Arches, - ~6 kgs Course Aragonite Sand, - AI Prime 16HD with Flex Arm Then what followed was an extremely frustrating process of waiting. I had prepared myself for approximately a month of cycling, and my ammonia was at 0 after approximately 3 weeks, but the Red Sea test kit showed nitrite at the maximal 1, with nitrates often being 5-10. This led me to believe I couldn't start until I had 0 nitrate due to my lfs and my experience in freshwater. I then was curious about what could possibly be causing this, and I discovered my rocks were leaching small amounts of ammonia, and reasonable amounts of nitrite, by way of an experiment. I did this by performing an experiment with a control, with the rocks separately in buckets of water, and with the sand again in separate water. The rocks had 0.25 ammonia each and 0.5 nitrite each after 2 days. I have no explanation for how this occurred. (I'm a science student, can you tell?) I eventually came upon information that nitrite is not toxic to marine life in low levels around July, after buying and using so much bottle bac! However being cautious I waited it out, hoping my nitrite would reduce. Finally I bit the bullet and bought a basic ocellaris clownfish. Thankfully, all was well for about a week, with no signs of stress, and so I wanted to get 'it' a friend. Whilst at the lfs I fell in love with a picasso percula clownfish, as well as a small green bta. I also grabbed a small clean up crew of turbos and hermits. Having researched the gbta previously, I know it was a dubious decision, however, is my tank mature after being dormant since April? Who knows? The gbta quite quickly settled in a location and to my surprise was extremely happy visually. A few days later the picasso percula then started hosting it! I then visited the lfs a couple weeks later, where my girlfriend had spotted a nem that she loved. So I figured when I returned I'd entertain her and see what nem it was. It was a 'rainbow' bubble tip, and when we returned to the lfs she pointed it out in their display. I asked about their availability, and they offered to sell that exact nem to me, as it had split! I had also hoped that given my clowns weren't paired they could have a nem each for the time being! Unfortunately the percula decided both nems were theirs, defending them both from the poor ocellaris. I'll leave the thread at that for now, I hope you enjoy it!
  9. My saddleback clownfish hosts a condy anemone. She also hosts a bubble tip, but she definitely prefers the condy. I wasn't expecting my clown to take any interest in the condy but she proved me wrong 🙂

    True Percula and Black Saddleback

    I decided to try pairing a true percula and a black saddleback ocellaris. I introduced them to the tank at the same time and made sure to have a plan in place to separate them if things went wrong. They've only been together for a week now, but I haven't seen any signs of aggression or bullying. Last night they slept in their anemone together. It's too cute!
  11. pH: 8.1 Ammonia: 0 ppm Nitrite: 0.125 ppm Nitrate: 0 ppm 40 gallon tank has been cycling for a few weeks. Added a pair of percula clownfish and green bubble tip anemone. Anemone was looking great and open the other day, last night it started to close. I'm worried it might be dying. It looks like it's starting to open again this morning, but I'm still a bit concerned. I would love to hear any and all opinions. I'm new to the saltwater hobby, so I'm open to suggestions as well. Thank you in advance!

    Clown's Nuvo20

    I lucked out to get a 10g IM with the Skyye light used for $50. It had been used for 6mnths for a freshwater tank. It was in excellent condition. We made a pedestal stand for it out of 2x4's and special grade plywood used to make tractor trailers. This stand is solid and very heavy! Equipment 10g Im Stock pump Spin Stream Nozzle Skyye Light 10k 50/50 Caribsea black hawaiian live sand 80% dry rock/20% liverock I cycled the tank with just the liverock, no dosing of anything. The tank took 6 weeks to cycle. I had a favia brain in the tank because it had been in my 15g but was attacked by peppermint shrimp so I had to remove it. It was in bad shape. After the first waterchange we added a few hermits and snails. After a month we added a leather which was a carnation leather. Upon finding out the difficulty in success with this coral I brought it back to the store. I didn't want to take the chance and lose a coral in such a new tank. My first fish was a purple firefish. it was added about 2 months after start up. It was absolutely beautiful and such a great fish.

    Cloak anemone care

    I recently found a red flat clawed hermit crab and then a cloak anemone attached to an empty shell at the beach. Acclimated them to my tank and they soon became friends. My tank is very new, just finished the cycling process and these are my first creatures in it. It’s been about 2 weeks since I introduced them to the tank and the anemone seems to be vibrant and lively but I have read so many posts about how anemones need to be in older tanks with optimal lighting and water quality. Is it too risky to keep? I am conflicted because I know anemones need specific care but this kind lives on the back of a bottom feeder with ever-changing lighting, water quality etc. in its natural habitat. I’m a first time reefer any advice is appreciated

    Is my anemone dead?

    Tank 13.5 .25 ammonia 0 on nitrate and nitrite temp 78 tank 3 months old 2 clowns 1 diamond spotted (the devil and hate him) goby 5 snails 1 cleaner shrimp i think I starved it, was feeding reefroids once a week. Last week it turned this purple and wasn’t inflating. I got a shrimp and spot feed it, it ate the small piece of shrimp. It hasn’t recovered back to normal since. The attached picture was after I removed it from the rock to smell if dead, no it just smelled like salt water. Idk what to do. I upgraded the pump for better flow and light. I started (after I saw he was sick) doing some iodine drops, read it’s good for zoa. Question or advice, how can I bring it back? Or should I just remove? And not buy another one till I am ready? idk looking forward guidance I will admit I failed it

    how much rock

    what is the bare minimum of reef saver rock i can use to aquascape a standard 20 gallon aquarium. filteration should not be much of a concern as i have a canester filter packed full of bio media rated for a 70 gallon and will upgrade to a sump very soon, and i have a 1.5 inch sand bed. i was recommended 0.5 kg/ 1 lbs per gallon but can i go much lower than that. its a fish and invert only system and i will not be adding coral as its illegal in my area. thanks!

    Bubble Tip Anemone Advice

    Hello reefers, I have come across the opportunity to obtain a bubble tip anemone for pretty cheap and was wondering if it would be worth looking into. I have a 25 gallon AIO peninsula that has two clowns, a royal gramma, and various inverts and soft corals. Unfortunately, I have been experiencing a bit of a diatom bloom, most likely because my tank is not fully established. If I were to get the anemone, it would most likely be next weekend. Would it be okay to purchase the anemone this early, or should I wait until the diatom outbreak has ended? Feel free to share any personal experiences or advice. Here is a link to my tank journal:
  21. I have a 22" tank and I used to have only led light, then I added T5, at fisrt everything in the tank liked it, corals loved it, but after 4-5 months later only the anemones are starting to act weird, as I turn on the T5s some start to shrivel, not right away but within hours, I also notice that some zooxanthellae is release (at least i think that's what it is) they used to poop normal pieces but now is brown see-through tissue, everything else in the tank is ok, I do waterchanges every week (i mean it). I also wanted to add a Gyre XF330 that I bought but I feel like it's too strong the slowest setting is 20% and that was upsetting the anemones as well so I took it off the same day I got it, kind of sad since it did help to lift off the food debri from the sand and hiding places. Also sometimes while deflating the anemones open their mouth and sometimes release food eaten a day before (feed once a week). The magnifica since to be doing better it had a bad time for a while but I set it up on top of rocks and it likes it, seems to be the only one to be fine with or without lighting. The bta in middle used to be bigger and very bubbly. ANY HELP WILL BE EXTREMELY APPRECIATED. Tank species: Anemones; magnifica, 4 bta, 2 torch, 1 hammer, 2 galaxia, zooas, 4 gorgonians, 2 leather, 2 polyps, Duncan, mushrooms, sponges, pulsing x, and 3 mantiporas. Clean up crew: emerald crabs, anemone crab, sand starfish, clams, bumblebee snail, and blue legged crab. Refugium: pods, chaeto micro and gracilaria.

    Looking for pests

    I'm testing some setups out and I'm looking for a couple of things. Anyone know where I can get Majano Anemone or Ball Tip Anemone (specifically strawberry)? Does anyone have any that they'd be willinf to sell? Also looking for some algae, specifically Dictyota. There are some others that people don't like that I'd be down to have.
