    Growing Coral On Glass Tank Walls

    I bought some frags from a local reefer a few months ago. Two of those frags were Kaleidoscope Polyps. One frag I gave to my brother and the other I placed on some rocks in my tank. These things began growing quickly so I simply pulled the little rock they were glued to away. Some coral was...

    Wedding centerpieces I need your help.

    Another point to consider. We went to a wedding about 4 years ago where they had floating candles. About 2 hours into the wedding you could hear glass break. Turns out the candle somehow heated up the glass and water it was floating in and it shattered. Glass and water everywhere. No one...

    What a Beard of a Man!

    That was my objective last winter. I started around Halloween and shaved it a few weeks after St Patricks Day. I honestly just let it grow and didn't attempt to trim the edges at all. I did take a brush to it if we were going somewhere though. lol Some shots along the way. It really began...

    Important Do laundry detergent buckets 'leak' plastic?

    I did that once for an emergency tank when I was moving. I would never do it again though. The plastic is very thin and the sides bow out a lot.

    Important Do laundry detergent buckets 'leak' plastic?

    For what it's worth, I used to use one of those buckets and never had a problem. I used it to empty and fill my tank as well as use it as a temporary holding tank when needed. Never had a problem.

    Wedding centerpieces I need your help.

    Congrats on your engagement. I would highly advise AGAINST using fish as centerpieces. While it may look cool, how practical is it? It is YOUR wedding day and you want the LEAST amount of stress that day. Trust me. Having fish is just another pain that you don't really need. You will be...

    Auto Feeders, thoughts?

    There's nothing wrong with that at all. My entire tank is automated thanks to me APEX aquarium controller. If the tank gets too hot it will turn on a small fan to cool the water off. It also controls my lights too. Tank gets too hot, lights go off. It also tops of my water and does...

    What if your heater breaks? What if your filter breaks? What if you lose power? What if a fish dies of natural causes? What if a seam breaks causing a leak?

    Question Overflow boxes + Sump plan sound good?

    Are you planning a salt tank or a fresh tank? Is there a way to have all of your tanks dump into a single sump? My overflow box and sump are custom built so I can't comment on store bought ones. I've been using a u tube overflox box and it hasn't failed once.

    stocking new 55

    Yes, but why put undo stress on a creature in your tank? If one of my fish breaks a star apart and it grows back then that's cool but I don't want to be the one harming it in the first place. We still haven't received an answer about what star is in this newly set up tank. Sadly, it's...

    feeding fuzzy dwarf

    Why are you so defensive? I'm trying to help. Going to the store, purchasing livestock and then trying to learn about that livestock is the wrong way to go about things. You have already commented you are on a limited budget. You then go and purchase a lionfish which are notorious for only...

    Liveaquaria.com

    I've bought a bunch of saltwater livestock from there. Fish, snails, shrimp, starfish, coral and more. All arrived in great condition and are still going strong. I have placed 3 orders through them since July. My shipment was supposed to be overnighted all 3 times. On two of those shipments...

    Auto Feeders, thoughts?

    If the Ehiem I use and fell in the water then the food wouldn't pollute the tank. One side of the food container has a little piece of plastic that you adjust to change the size of the opening. Th bigger the adjustment you make, the more food comes out. The other end of the container has a...

    Kent Marine Reef Carbon Product Advisory

    Two of my LFS got hit hard last month. One had a problem because of the carbon. Last I heard, the other suspected sabotage by copper in their reef system. Perhaps they had the carbon issue too.

    I'd say the container was about the size of a yogurt cup.
