    Help New Tank Gone Downhill Really Quick

    So I have a IM20 fusion with 20lbs of live rock and sand. I set this tank up around a month or two ago and things seemed to be really good at first. I initially bought a firefish which was so timid it was crazy. It would never come out and to this day it was never freely out. After a month I...

    Help Evolution Aqua Reef Balls

    Has anyone had any experience with this product or the less concentrated version? I was wondering if this may need an ammonia source such as a fish in order to cycle a tank or you simply add it to your aquarium and wait for the cycle to be done with. I have seen some bacteria products where it...
