  1. Just getting started on my first reef tank. I have had freshwater tanks in the past but it has been a couple of years. I have been researching how to setup a reef tank for over a year now.

  2. Updated FTS 3/12/20 Hey Everyone ! Newish to the hobby here , have set up a few pico tanks prior to this one , one 5 gallon and one 2.5 gallon .

Now finally I’ve gotten around to setting up the tank after the holidays. What I have so far : IM 20g peninsula MightyJet 326 gph return pump Cobalt 75w Heater Current USA Orbit Dual pro IC LED bluetooth Current USA 660 wave pump Live rock Fiji pink substrate added so far update 1/23/20: 2 ocellaris clown fish ( Charlie & Clarissa) 1 six line wrasse ( Walter ) 3 small blue hermit crabs tiger conch ( Connie ) 1 nassarius snail 3 bumblebee snails corals added so far 2/6/20: yellow colony polyp Duncan toadstool leather RFA Hammer Goniopora Now to wait for the tank to cycle .. trying to cycle naturally with the live rock. Any suggestions on if this is the best way? If not what are best products to use to speed up the process ? Also wanted suggestions/ feedback on what everyone thought about the rock work ?

    Toadstool Dying?!

    I have had a healthy large toadstool now for many years. This same toadstool I thought was going through its normal shedding, but it seemed to be taking longer than it normally does. I noticed a round brown spot developed almost overnight right near the center. As I normally do daily, I was blowing off the rocks with the baster and decided to blow what seemed to be a brown film on the toadstool. The tissue in the area was so soft that it blew a hole directly through the outer skin making a hole!! What is going on?! Never seen this before and need to know what I need to do. All other corals, including my sps are all fine, but it. See pic.

    Is this normal for a toadstool leather???

    So my toadstool seems like it’s shrinking. The edges are folding down so it might just be giving me the illusion of it shrinking because it’s covering the stem. Is this normal for a toadstool? It’s been doing this Id day for the past week. The polyps are still extending so I know it’s not shedding. I tried changing the flow but didn’t make much of a difference. My parameters are all up to par salinity is always constant at 1.024, ammonia 0, nitrite 0, ph is a little low at 8, and notates are at 5 ppm. Heres some before and after shots. Around the time I fist got it to now.

    The Saltwater Sunset

    Hey-Have a Cichlid tank that was doing well, so I wanted to try my hand at a saltwater tank. Not sure if we are headed in the right direction or not? Was hoping for opinions, constructive criticism or whatever just please keep it to ideas that will improve the quality of life for the tank. It's a 15 gallon tank. (I personally think the 15gal should be the quarantine tank and use the larger 40gal tank as the "Ta-da-da Tank" , the "aren't you so jealous of my absolutely gorgeous aquarium tank?" . But he thinks that is aiming a little too big, so here we are... Compromising with a 15)".I am just learning about all this; lighting, coral, flow, zooplankton, etc. So please tell me if I havethings that aren't compatible or if something else would work better.But a CoraLife T5 light, but it's just white so there is also a blue LED light.Just the regular filter that came with the tank, I was unsure if I would need a better one if I got a protein skimmer, but some have said such a small tank doesn't need a protein skimmer.The small heater that came with the tank. I live in Central CA, and the heater has kept the water 77-78.6. Check it 2x a day along with the SG which is staying between 1.0228-1.0247. I have not checked the PH, nitrates or nitrites. However, I take watersamples to the Aquarium Store and he tests the water weekly and says consistently good. Everything I have read online says to start with rock then a clean up crew so there is dry rockstacked in there. Then we added some crabs and snails. When they did good, we added a couple more and two of the most beautiful little perculas (Bruce and Nemo). I am thinking a Red Dragonette but have since been informed of their difficulty. So maybe just a scooter blenny and some coral. I have never tried to raise coral before so I think I should start with Toadstool. It's not my favorite, but they say it is hardy and if I can get it to thrive maybe a birds nest and go from there. I guess I am just not sure how many crabs, lobsters, snails and fish can go in the tank. I know not many that's why I want the larger tank I would love a Mandarin gooby or a tang. But I want tank inhabitants quality of life to be what's on the forefront, not how many differentcolors I can fit in my computer desk tank.But any questions just ask. "A woman without a man, is like a fish without a bicycle."

    Toadstool leather looking rough

    I got a toadstool leather yesterday, and at first it was doing really well, had acclimated fine and stood up and opened almost immediately until the lights went out. This morning, same thing, came right up (first picture). Past few hours it has seemed extremely unhappy and won't come out at all..normal? Bad? Need some help here (second picture) Ammonia - 0 Nitrite - 0 Ph - 8.1 Nitrate - 5-10ppm Phosphates - 0.25 ppm Alk - 11dkh, or 196ppm Calc - roughly 420-440 Salinity - 1.0245 I know there's a phos and alk issue, it was worse, I'm successfully combating it!?? Does it need more flow (I have a 1000 pump in a chamber and a 250gph powerhead in the opposite corner of the stock one)? Is it just acclimating? Does it need to be moved? Closest corals are some acans (2" away) and a frogspawn (3" away).
