  1. Hey Everyone, Well I finally found a deal for a used 30Gish tank. I was able to get my hands on a BioCube 28 with everything I need to start the cycling process. However, it's a bit dirty right now and the stand will be getting some TLC too before I bring it in and fill her up (wood glue in some places, paint, new handles). She has already passed the 24 hour no leak test but there is a lot of old coralline attached to the walls, inside the AIO back system, and the wave runner. I was planning on using a vinegar solution with a kitchen sponge as well as a small-bristle brush I got for the wave runner. I'm not planning on getting everything spotless but at least to where it starts reasonably clean for my first SW baby (baby = aquarium, not fish 🤪). Any extra tips on cleaning? Should I even do a vinegar wash if the tank was dry for sometime in a garage? Hoping to have this guy cleaned and set up to start cycling this week. I AM SO PUMPED!

    Does Shrimp Cleaning = Sick Fish?

    Hi all, I have a cleaner shrimp in my 30 gallon tank that seems to have a voracious appetite. I’m very happy with the small skunk cleaner and how much he tries to clean my fish. But counterintuitively, this makes me worried about my fish. I know my tank has ich since I had an outbreak in the past, but all my fish currently look and act healthy. No spots or scratching on rocks or any other unusual behavior. My largest fish, a foxface rabbitfish has been getting a lot of attention from the shrimp. The rabbitfish was also hit hardest by the ich in the past. It’s a small tank and I guess it’s not easy to avoid the manic little shrimp (the rabbitfish is moving to a bigger home soon), but the rabbitfish often swims slowly past. The shrimp jumps on and starts to clean and the rabbitfish shakes him off shortly after. Not sure if the fish is asking for it or not. Either way, my real question boils down to this: If my cleaner shrimp is cleaning my fish a lot does it mean my fish is getting sick? Even if the fish shows no signs of infection? thanks in advance to any thoughts and advice!

    Tank Smell

    Anyone experience tank smell after doing a good cleaning with big water change on their tank. I was scrubbing cyno and syponing it out not sure if that’s what caused the smell
  4. Hey guys I just started my first nano reef and realized I didn’t clean my tank before I filled it. What’s the best way to get rid of these water stains on the glass? I’ve alreasy added bio-spira. Am I just out of luck and need to drain the tank and buy some more bio-spira? I appreciate the help Sorry also just noticed that the pictures don’t really do justice to show the stains

    protein skimmer not foaming

    Hi guys, this is my first post and im hoping some of you can help me. My protein skimmer (a Fluval Sea ps2 mini) is barely foaming and I havent had to empty it in a month at least. Ive checked airlines and the water level seems to be fine in it, could there just be nothing to skim? I haven't done a pullout and hose down yet. Tanks ;D - Joe
