    Coral Fading

    Hi, Acans and hammers are quite sensitive to parameters. Even in a stable established tank, they can still be a bit tempremental. Ammonia definitely won't be helping, and spikes in temperature can quickly and dramatically affect corals. As for parameters, a general guide for a reef tank is NO3...

    Question Seneye Reef

    Hi, welcome to Fishlore. The Reef system looks pretty capable, but also maybe not worth it. It monitors NH3, which is great, but in a cycled tank, it's kinda redundant. I'd much prefer to see a system that monitors NO3, but the probes are ridiculously expensive. pH is nice, but really, in an...

    Question New Post Problem, Anyone Else Noticed?

    Hi Cherie, If you've made the post, or read the thread, it won't show under new posts anymore. e.g. it gets marked as 'read' and no longer appears. New posts only shows new posts that you haven't read. Is that what's happening?

    Seachem Iron Flourish, How Often To Dose?

    Hi, welcome to Fishlore. How often and how much to dose depends on the types of plants, other fert's you might be using and the level of iron already in the water. Do your plants show signs of Fe deficiency? (that is, pale yellowing of new growth or the entire plant) The best advice I can give...

    Sump Evaporation Is Really Fast!!

    Hi, I agree with John. It's pretty normal. You'll experience evaporation from any exposed surface. That means the display and the sump are both areas for evaporation, especially the overflow areas (overflow weir, baffles etc). I was experiencing about 1% evaporation per day (0.5G), and just had...

    Question Advice On Coral Gobys Please!

    Hi, I don't much about gobies. They are considered a peaceful species and can be kept in groups. It's possible they are pairing up, but too early to say mated pair, that can only be confirmed if they breed.

    Forum Issue - Gateway Error

    Hi @Nick72 It's not just Fishlore. I believe it's a cloudfare problem. I've had issues with Fishlore, and other websites getting the same errors that use cloudfare. Cloudfare's service status page indicates recent issues with network performance. Unfortunately, I think this is out of Mike's...

    Ban On International Sale Of Rare Reptiles

    Let me preface by saying that I'm all for the protection of native species from extinction. I'm also somewhat against the domestication and trade of wild animals as many can't (or don't) care for them properly. In Aus, the ornamental animal trade is heavily regulated. SW fish, wild caught, is a...

    Anyone Else Frustratingly Disadvantaged By Location?

    Hi, Yep, we have it a bit rough when it comes to hobbies. Economies of scale mean that everything is relatively more expensive here, and Tassie makes it worse... Transportation/freight costs alone are ridiculous. I do know that most dedicated aquariums (not a chain store) will build to order...

    Anyone Here Like To Cook/bake?

    Kangaroo is delicious, if served properly. It has to be rare, otherwise it gets too tough to eat. It's a delicious, lean meat. In some areas, Kangaroo are considered to be over-populated, but I don't believe they're considered to be plague levels. We also eat the other animal on our coat of...

    Important Mother & Family Poisoned By Palytoxin Coral Defense

    Hi, I don't think this is a definitive warning. I'm not saying keeping paly' is not dangerous, but, apart from sensationaialised media reports, you need to understand how palytoxins work. You need to read the article completely. "She developed a raging fever less than an hour after she finished...
