  1. So a few people on Facebook are saying bettas are brackish fish and can be put into salt tanks if acclimated. I can’t find anything online in research to support this. Also don’t most Betta breeders use fresh water? So they wouldn’t of come from brackish anyways. If anyone knows please tell me.
  2. Sorry for the super 'average' question. I wasn't sure whether to ask it in this Discussion, or the AIO one, but since I'm a novice when it comes to marines I'll put it here. I simply want the best for what I'm looking to set-up, I've already asked & done a lot of research but I thought where better to ask than here. Going away to university, want to downsize my hobby but also bring a piece of my job along with me. I'm very aware of the maintainence & have plans for stuff like weekly water changes etc. My budget is flexible, but obviously I'd rather not blow it all. The one I've had my eye on was the Aqua One Nano Reef 35, & I was thinking to just probably upgrade the skimmer & maybe the lighting too. It's an AIO, since I don't want to set-up a sump in my dorm, and comes with a heater etc. It's retailing for around $230 / £170, but for the upgrades it'd cost me extra, so let's assume it's around $300. I've also been scouring ebay etc for deals but it's hard to find tanks which are a good deal & near-by, since most people aren't willing to ship them with it being glass and all. Are there any other good & reliable options / recommendations? -->If these options require some small upgrades e.g. skimmer / lighting, what upgrades would you recommend?<-- Others I've seen: Peninsula Box Mini 15 (Expensive, £479 with the light, which I assume is a good light) Fluval Sea Evo Innovative Marine 10 Pro (out of stock on official site) Thanks! Edit; A tank that sits nicely on a desk / square cabinet would be preferrable. Ideally too some nice coral recommendations which aren't too sensitive. The end goal is a nice anenome / xenia showcase.

    Cleaner Shrimp and Firefish

    Is it okay for my firefish and cleaner shrimp to share their habitat? My shrimp has his own but prefers to be in the same live rocks as my firefish.
  4. Help! I set up my 16-gallon Biocube yesterday and something is wrong with the pump that came with it. I currently have live rock, sand, a fluval fan, and saltwater in the tank. In the back I have media, a heater, and the pump the tank came with. I was expecting a hum noise from the pump but it is very loud. To the point we have to raise our voices to talk if we’re in the same room as the tank. It sounds like a very loud buzzing noise coming from the pump. I’ve tried moving it in the chamber and playing with the suction cups on the bottom of it and the noise still persists. Any advice on what to do or other pumps to try?

    Wavemaker Placement

    Hi I'm new to the saltwater hobby (coming from 4 years in freshwater experience) and I need help with the placement of my wavemaker. I'm planning on getting corals in the next few months and I want to ensure they have the best environment I can provide. So far I've made my own reefscape with dry rock and now I'm wondering what kind of powerhead I should be using and where to position it? I have a 20 gallon tall aquarium and only has a clownfish and blue legged crab. My main concern is where to place my wavemaker and whether or not I may need two.
  7. I am trying to bring euryhaline fish from freshwater to saltwater. here is my method: I have a 60ml syringe and every 5mins I’ll take 60ml and put back 60ml until I have changed the whole tank out. I just started today so here are my pics

    Tiny black/brown worms in tank

    I am pretty new to this. my tank in cycled ammonia, Nitrite, 0. and Nitrate 1-5. I had tiny black worms in my tank, they looked as if they were just sitting on the sand maybe dead. They were a bit thick and only about a 1/4 long. I am not sure what they were I just vacuumed them all out so I dont have a picture. Any idea what they are?

    Type of anemone

    hi, So, I went to buy 2 life rocks and they came with 2 anemones, they are small and doing great but I don't know what type they are, one has like neon dark green at the bottom and red/brown/purple tentacles it doesn't look like it might be a bubble anemone although sometimes a few of its tentacles at the bottom looks like it might, and the other is I think a rose anemone but when I got the rock at the aquarium it look like the foot was stretched and the tentacles where very stretchy and thin, but since it has been in my tank is just fluffy. Also how far do they need to be one another? Will the clown fish host both anemones? How big the anemones grow? I appreciate the help and time for your response 🙂 I hope the attached url can be shown it is a short video of how they move. http://20200921_113520 | Flickr https://flic.kr/p/2jJPvYg

    Best digital test kit

    I'm new to this hobby and don't want to continue coming to the fish store every week to get my water tested, but I don't want to have to deal with looking at all of those colors. I have seen 2 digital test kits, the Hanna test kit and the idip, the Hanna test kit is very expensive and I've heard the idip is inaccurate. I'm not made of money but I don't want something that's too inaccurate. Wich should I get (unless you know of any other ones)?
  11. So I have an empty 5 gallon tank from my betta and pleco died. And I’d like to try a saltwater tank, but I’m not sure what fish to use, how much live rock/sand to use, what equipment to use and how to test salinity and such. Any recommendations? Or is that to small of a tank?

    What type of worm is this?

    I have a saltwater ecosphere and have been unable to find identification resources for this little guy. Any ideas?
  13. I've had this hermit crab since November, sold to me listed as a blue leg from Petco. Obviously it isn't a blue leg, and it has grown 4x its size within 6 months. The other two hermit crabs I bought with it seemed to have disappeared within 2 weeks, so I assume it's aggressive. Thankfully it hasn't killed any of my snails yet. I've looked for hours trying to figure out what kind it is. It's like a mix between a zebra, thinstripe, and yellow tip. Any ideas?

    Hi! Im new to saltwater keeping! I saw my clownfish rubbing its side on the sand and thought it was just playing, upon more research I realized it could be ich. Im not really sure... im new to saltwater keeping so every literally thing i find off, i google them. I could just be paranoid but i’ll really what to make sure. If this is ich what do you suggest i do? I have a 10 gallon with 2 clownfish, a cleaner shrimp and live rock and live sand.

    Need helping setting up a goby tank

    Hey everybody, I'm in the process of finishing up with cycling my second saltwater tank which I plan (hopefully, if possible) on making a full goby reef tank. I need some tips on what I can and need to put in the tank. I have a green mandarin on hold at my LFS, and I have my eye on the yellow watchman/prawn, the hi-fin, the orange spotted, and the wheelers shrimp goby. I'm looking for all of the tips I can get here. Some of my more important questions are; Will all of these separate species be okay without a mate? Do they need a shrimp buddy? Do they need more than one shrimp buddy? Who should be put in the tank first? Most importantly, are these different kinds of goby even compatible together, and with a reef? Of course, I do plan to have an elaborate aquascape with adequate sand coverage, as well as many rocky hiding/burrow spots. I'm pretty new to reef tanks so please play nice. Ive seen many rude discouraging comments here recently and it makes asking for help slightly nerve-racking. Thanks for the help everybody 😄

    Hello looking for help I recently set up my fluval evo aquarium with just dry rock and coral sand and I have no filtration set up yet as per the advice just a power head and bio media .. I added my Dr tims bacteria and 1 drop of ammonia per gallon after I tested my water parameters the following day my nitrite read 0,2 and my ammonia 3ppm, so I didn't add anymore ammonia and checked today my levels are the exssact same? My pH has also been 7 both days I understand its low but it says not to mess with pH until tank fully cycled? Any advice would be appreciated

    505Nano*New 16 Biocube

    Hello all, new to this forum and the nano community. I currently have a 54 Gal Aqueon corner tank, which was my first saltwater tank. I have successfully had that tank running from July 2019 and in that time, I instantly fell in love with owning and maintaining ( weird, I know) a saltwater aquarium, its almost therapeutic. I find myself now always looking for places to put a tank in my small ish home and I decided to look for nano for my bedroom. Marineandreef had a sweet deal for the 16 biocube with stand for $269 (after discount and sale) and I decided it was time to expand ha. After convincing wifey (really just ordering and apologizing after), I found myself tracking and waiting. Fast fwd to today, I have the stand set up in the corner of our room with the nano boxed back up ( did not want the toddlers to move it around and possibly drop it empty). I am currently studying, reading the journals and ordering the necessary items needed to begin the tank and start the cycle (so much fun, bleh). Enough backstory, the following will be about the nano I decided to start a journal from the very beginning of this nano to notate what is planned and get advice. As far as Filtration, I have decided to use the included basket for now with the following in order: Poly Filter Floss SeaChem Purigen SeaChem Matrix bio-media in bag (obviously) I have contemplated so much on the filtration and am open to any suggestions. I do not think I will be doing a refug at this time, so that will not be currently considered. The Heater I have decided to go with is the Aqueon Pro 100W, which will be placed in the 1st chamber after false floor is removed. Rock & Substrate: Walt Smith Reef Rock 2.1 20lb dry purple rock Carribsea fiji pink live sand 20lb I do plan on taking some of the smaller pieces of live rock from my current 54 gal to assist in seeding nano. Wavemaker will be the Jebao SW2. This is the brand I currently use on my 54 Gal, and have had no issues and love the controllers for them. I do not plan on modifying the led lighting just yet. Also, I will NOT be running a skimmer on this nano at this time, as I don't mind maintenance and will be planning on weekly 5 gal water changes. Now, Salt.. When I started my 54 gal, I initially went with IO salt as I was not planning on having coral, but of course I was seduced by the beauty.. now I am wanting to switch to some type of high quality reef salt for both tanks. I am leaning more towards Red Sea Coral Pro Salt, I would love any input on this! As far as livestock, I am planning on having 2 designer clownfish (havent really decided on type yet) and maybe a firefish or goby, also undecided lol I will have a clean up crew consisting of a couple trochus, cerrith and maybe astrea snails as well as a couple hermits and debating on a fighting conch. I am undecided on which corals I will be adding just yet, as I want to aquascape first and see where I can place them, which will better determine what I decide on. I will be posting on this journal for anyone who would like to keep up with the nano build. Let me know if anyone has any advice or critique! Thank you! 505nano

  23. Latest updated photo 10-20-19: Hello friends, this is my new project, it's a 5 gallon Topfin engage. This is day 2 and live rock is in, but the sand wasn't live. I don't really have mapped out plans for it so we'll see it evolve as the days go on. Right now i'm going to wait a few weeks maybe a month for the system to cycle. So far I haven't added anything non stock to the aquarium, besides heater. I'm using Chemipure and Purigen for filtration. I think I need more interesting looking rock, but for now it'll do to break in the system. I prefer soft & lps coral so that's going to be the main inhabitants, fish-wise idk yet (prob clowns). I'm going to update every week or so, stay tuned. First photo log 10-15-19:
  24. Hello there new aquarium friends. I’m totally new to this whole world of aquariums. I’ve never really had a cool setup like I’ve received from my gfs father. He gave me a bunch of awesome tools to make an epic aquarium. I have been wanting to make an awesome aquarium for my home for some time now. But it’s such a costly but well worth it kind of hobby. I have been given a 14 gallon Oceanic bio cube. Also there is a new light that he added from stevesled. I need to figure out the configuration of the plugins to the lights. Also learning how to setup the timing for all the light. Also have no idea what cycles to set up the timers on. He suggested some things to get started: 10 lbs of live sand carribsea arag-Alice aquarium sand. 3 x 5 galling imagitarium Pacific Ocean water 5-10 pounds of live rock If any of you have any good starter tips or and any information on the light setups and timers please feel free to help.
