Looks good @Mike
Are we missing a few icons and minor bits?
I'm seeing lots of little squares on buttons (browser = Chrome)
Is it just the CDNs need to be updated? There's a lot of errors in the console logs...
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
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...
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?
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...
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...
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.
Treating algae can be a difficult task.
The first step is to identify the type algae, then from there, you can identify the likely cause(s).
The following website is a great resource for identifying and treating the causes of many common algae Aquarium Algae ID (updated May6th '10 Surface Skum)
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...
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...
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...
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...
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.

Hiya, welcome to Fishlore!
Your recipe sounds, umm, interesting. The dried pineapple and coriander (sorry, cilantro for Americans ) sounds interesting.
Tonight, I did baked chicken breast marinated in buttermilk, garlic and parsley. Roast carrots, and duck fat roasted potato and sweet potato...
Wow, everyone must be starving, no updates for a couple of weeks :hilarious:
Anyway, here's tonight's Bloody mary linguine with chilli/garlic butter prawns
The recipe is from Gordon Ramsay's cookbok, but just google the recipe, you'll find it
He uses lobster for this recipe, but it's so dang...
