  1. How did you discover nano reef keeping, and how did you get started? Was it Nano-Reef.com, a friend, or a local fish store? What was hard about getting started? What would you have done differently?

  3. Hobbyists have a lot of options today when it comes to choosing saltwater for their reef aquariums. The most common option has traditionally been mixing saltwater at home using carefully developed dry synthetic blends. For hobbyists fortunate to live near the ocean, or a public aquarium, bulk supply of filtered seawater has long been available. In more recent years, it's become possible to even purchase pre-packaged jugs of filtered seawater in local stores, a real convenience for nano reef keepers in particular. Many local fish stores also offer both pre-mixed saltwater and filtered seawater in bulk, allowing you to purchase just the right amount while reusing your own containers. Let's take a look at where everyone is sourcing their own nano reef aquarium's saltwater. Have you made a switch from one source to another? Share your experiences, good and bad!

  6. I've come across a number of (admittedly older) articles about temperatures in the oceans and in reef tanks and how they affects coral growth rates and health. Of course, temperature also affects a host of other factors such as metabolic rates of fish, corals, inverts, and even bacteria, their immune systems, photosynthesis, dissolved O2 and CO2 and resulting pH swings, Alkalinity consumption, algal growth rates, evaporation, electric bills... seemingly everything... From an article by Ronald Shimek: The average annual temperature of most coral reefs is around 82 to 84 degrees Fahrenheit (27 to 28 degrees Celsius), which seems to be the optimum for coral growth. The most diverse coral reefs are found in a band running from Palau in the Western Caroline Islands through Indonesia (Veron 1986). In this area the atoll water temperature averages around 84 degrees Fahrenheit (28 degrees Celsius) and probably never gets as low as 80 degrees (around 27 degrees Celsius) and the salinity on the reef faces generally is in excess of 35 parts per thousands (ppt) (Sverdrup et al. 1942, Brandon 1973). Most of our corals and the associated fauna, including fish, will live best at these conditions (Weber and White 1976). Additionally many of these areas have summer avg temperatures in the mid-to-high 80's with peaks sometimes exceeding 90°. However most people (myself included) keep their aquariums way below this range, and most programmed thermometers/thermostats seem to target 78°F by default. Many of us even employ chillers to actively prevent temperatures from ever reaching these ranges identified as 'optimum' for corals. So what temperature do you target? And if you've contemplated the reason, why?
  7. What do you use to clean the inside panels of your aquarium? I have always used a razor blade on my glass aquariums. I found the magnetic cleaners were convenient, but could never reach everything.
