    Here is a picture. If I keep the lights on for a long enough period for corals it really takes off. I’ve had the lights off for a week and it goes away but as soon as the lights come back on it starts growing again.

    A Good Carbon

    Using carbon seems too make the water cleaner in my tank. It can remove organics so why wouldn’t you use it. I read the just a little cloud in the water can greatly reduce light penetration to the bottom of the tank not good if you have corals. I know some people do not use it but I wonder why...

    Keeping Bacteria Alive No Fish

    Thanks. Sounds like the bacteria will be ok if you keep adding food. I guess to I can slowly add the fish back into the tank after the 8 week period. I thought about dosing with ammonia but would have know idea how much to add. Has anyone done this before? Once I got ick in the tank I was...

    Can A Tang Eat Too Much?

    I’ve had my Atlantic Blue tang for almost a month and so far he seems to be doing good. He only wants to eat the paper algae and would probably eat it all day if I let him. His stomach is starting to get a little fat. Should I feed as much as he wants or should I restrict his eating?

    How Can I Improve My Water Quality (ph And Hardness)?

    I also say leave it. Is the water in your area have a high PH or is something in your tank raising the PH such as the substrate or rocks? But if you want to get your PH down a little buy some Seachem discus buffer. It works very well and you can put some in when you do a water change.

    3 Month Cycle Wont Remove Tiny Bit Of Ammomia

    You really need to stop putting new water in your tank that contains ammonia. That stuff is very poisonous to the fish. If your test kit is accurate I think your only choice is to find water with zero ammonia. Maybe spring or distilled water. Once you do that that bacteria colonies will be able...

    Do I Need A Bubble Wall?

    What size back filter do you have? Is it running well? With the proper size back filter while keeping it running well in my experience you should not need any bubbler. The back filter should be able to disperse top water agitation without water being block by obstacles. The fish too will...

    Sweeping A Tank

    So do they clean up your sand so you do not sweep? I only ask because I did a big sweeping of my sand which caused the water to cloud up like milk, something live sand tends to do when it is stirred. The next day unfortunately my kole tang died.
