    OMG.... At least the glass was clean.

    Anemone tank is going very well. Anemones are much bigger now! No splitting just growing like crazy. The main tank is doing ok. I am getting a bit of algae bloom. Currently trying out Vibrant (I saw a lot of other folks mentioning it in TOTM threads) to see if that would decrease algae. It is a new tank so I expected it to happen, so I'm just hoping to decrease the amount.
  3. What puffer are you intending to get? Most will eat your inverts especially the shrimp.

    Flow Advice

    Not sure if this makes a difference, but the back does have room for flow. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk

    Flow Advice

    I need some advice on flow. The attached picture is a 45 gallon tank. I currently have the return flow on the top right and an IM Wavelink Pump on the top left. I want to swap the IM pump to a Maxspect XF230 Gyre. Should I mount it horizontally on the left side of the glass or vertically to the back left? Any suggestion appreciated.

    It subsided but there are still some blowing out. I will it give some time and see if it goes away.

    Thank you. No matter what I try to do, it always end up somewhat symmetrical... and wall-ish.

    Thank you. Most of the equipment came with the tank. I didn't want to make a mistake with equipment and bought them as a set. Those are the AI Prime. They actually produce more heat than I realize. During peak time, it actually increases my tank to around 79.9 degrees.

    I tried my best. The lighting is horrible in my den and I only have my phone camera. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk

    Gyre or traditional Powerheads

    Just make sure you can use those coupons for items that are under MAPs. They always restrict coupons.

    Gyre or traditional Powerheads

    Well, black friday is coming! Maybe we will see some deals. I'm waiting to see what they have also. Probably will try to stock up on things I use a lot of (carbon, 2-part, etc.).

    Um... found this guy in the anemone tank. I seriously did not think they get this big. Chapstick for scale. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk

    Gyre or traditional Powerheads

    I was in the same dilemma a few months ago. I ended up choosing the Vortech. 1. Easy maintenance. Many of the gyre i have seen look "dirty". 2. Low profile. 3. Ease of use. 4. Been around for a long time and proven to be very good with good user ratings.

    I have substrate and sulfur denitrator questions

    I had a hard time keeping my pH high for a long time also. Every method mentioned in other threads was not working (water agitation, etc.), not feasible (drilling a hole outside for skimmer), or end up affecting other parameters (kalk). My tank was running as low as 7.3-7.4 at times during the day. Best method found so far that works well for me is the CO2 scrubber. I got one from BRS.
