    A little update was feeding the tank and looking at a pandora paly frag I have up front and I see a little one that looks to be sprouting from the base unlike the others. When I take a closer look it looked like a tiny aptasia. I have had this frag for 42 days exactly. Pulled the frag out and...

    All the corals looked good and open. I think since I caught it right away it did not do any long term affects. Atleast I am hoping. Will keep updating.

    Lchi’s Sw Build- 10g To Im25 Lagoon!

    5.5g is the cut off for pico which is what most follow, I feel like anything under 10g is pico. Main issue I had with substrate is once you start to get decent flow it would blow around. I removed it in my 3 g and made husbundry easier. In my 5.5 I left it out and all I do is once a month siphon...

    90g Sw Build...eek!

    definitely tough, If you are going to move it you could take advantage of it to fix the nutrient and algae issues with rip cleaning the whole tank and starting clean at the new location. If you decide to sell it im sure you will eventually come back. I would say do what is best for you and the...
