    Everything kills you, it's just a matter of how fast!

    ICP Test Results are in...

    Also, tank is still young, don't try and catch up all at once if the problem is solved.

    Collecting Rainwater to Make Saltwater

    I used to wonder if I could use the water from a dehumidifier as top off. I think it's kind of the same principles. It would take more energy to find a way to get it reef ready than would be worth it.

    Cantilevered Tank

    What if I did it the other way around? What if it ran the full 3', but evenly hung over 1" on the left and the right? Would a 1" board underneath be enough that I could rest the tank on top?

    Why do zoas grow like wild fire under MHs?

    It's not just Zoanthids. This is a debate that has been had countless times on every forum, from my experience it's: Metal Halides T5's LED's The trade off is efficiency, with LED's being the most cost effective, least amount of heat output, and longest life. I ran metal halides once, and the heat vs. growth wasn't worth it in my small space. Here are some of the discussions I found on WAMAS with a quick google search on Metal Halides Vs. LED's. Radions VS. Metal Halides LED VS. Metal Halides Geismann VS. Hamilton VS. LEDS

    Need help seperating magnets!!

    Try pushing the bottom one against a counter while trying to push the top one to make it slide onto the counter. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    Instead of trying to pull them apart, try to slide them apart, if that makes sense. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    Cantilevered Tank

    That makes sense, thanks for explaining. I’m dreaming of putting together a larger tank, but using the same stand. I think I’ve unknowingly planned ahead when I had the stand built. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Cantilevered Tank

    Honestly, I don't think I'll have to, have about 4.5" of wiggle room, but wanted to lay out a "what if" scenario. Like, would .5" make a big deal? 2"? Or is anything over one out of the 4 edges probably not OK.

    Here is a terrible exaggerated drawing to illustrate what I’m curious about! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    can excess lps cause more problems than fish?

    I don't know if this is helpful, but I have 25+ SPS and 25+ different zoanthids, 4 anemones, and all in a 22 gallon display, with maybe another 15 gallons in the sump. Only two clownfish, and they are all I feed. I don't do anything special, just water changes, skim, and dose 2 part. I only feed frozen (LRS) and after my tank hit some age, a lot of the nutrient/algae issues cleared up.

    Nothing crazy, but exploring.
