  1. I have no quarantine but I dip most frags with bayer pesticide and examine the frag very carefully with a big magnifying glass. I once saw a zoa eating nudibranch on a frag and killed it before it became a problem. Not a perfect method but it helps.
  2. I wish I had one thin dime for every harem of clownfish I saw on the reefs of Indonesia hosting a carpet anemone.
  3. Yes, that's right I'm having trouble growing Xenia. Also, my cheato is shrinking. My zoas and other soft corals are fine although the zoas, the GPS and the clove corals are growing slowly. There is no trace of algae on the rock. If the problem is too-clean-water then what do you do? Make it dirty? Overfeed? Add a fish?
  4. I've had the red light for about year and it did not make any dramatic difference.
  5. Why has my chaetomorpha shrunk from a basketball size clump to almost nothing? I have a regular plant grow bulb and a red light grow bulb ("ABI 25W Deep Red 660nm LED Light Bulb Bloom Booster for Flowering, Fruiting, and Grow Spectrum Enhancement", https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B071Z12H67/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o05__o00_s00?ie=UTF8&th=1) I guess the obvious answer is low phosphates. Is the red light thing nonsense? Maybe phosphates are low because of the cheato but then shouldn't it have grown bigger? More light? Add another fish?
  6. This and of course rinse it with tank water not fresh.
  7. With HOBs it depends. I had a newly setup 20 Long turn green once.The water was so green that you could not see through to the other side. A HOB with carbon floss cleared it up in a day. Also, a year ago I had bad nitrate spike and I could not for the life of me find the source. Ran my finger on the inside of the freshwater reservoir and felt a slime. TDS showed 300 in the reservoir. Cleaned the reservoir out, refilled it, tested it to zero TDS and did water changes. Nitrates went away.
  8. Hello. I'm new to this hobby and I'm having trouble growing mushrooms. What do?
  9. Sleepin with the fishes?
  10. I have always been able to reduce their spread. Power head right on them and they fall off Cover them with a thick rock and they come off Also, I only put them on smaller rocks to begin with. If they spread I sell that rock and put a new rock in it's place Sent from my Pixel 2 using Tapatalk
  11. I've been fighting aptasia for months. I kill it the moment I see it and then a new one pops up. I may need a AP Taser
  12. Why? Too much light? They are under 40 - 50 par. Not enough light?
  13. I've seen Mandarins eat bristle worms. You have those? The tank bred ones will eat frozen.
