  1. I used red slime remover the other week. it caused the oxygen levels to go so low i lost all 3 fishes I had. It did get rid of the cyano but if I would use it again it would be with caution. I did not run an air pump with a bubble stone to oxygenate the water per instructions.
  2. How did the Vibrant work out?
  3. The tube does look like vermetid snails to me. They are harmless but annoy corals nearby when feeding.
  4. All my photobucket pics are online again
  5. It looks dead. I would remove the dead fish before it pollutes the water. If it is not dead it looks like it soon will be. Sorry for your fish dying.
  6. Where are you located?
  7. I just bought some ESV salt because I was inspired by your tank. I was using reef crystals. I did some research reading reviews and such. Everything I saw was it was a very good quality 4 part mix.
  8. I have a Kole tang in an 80 gallon. He is one of two fishes, the other is a mystery wrasse. I don't think think he has grown a half inch since I got him.

  10. If you are running a canister filter or reactor I would guess 2 weeks to a month. Depends how dirty the water is. The carbon is exhausted when it has absorbed a certain amount of waste. I have heard that it continues to remove trace elements after it is exhausted but I don't have a way to confirm that. I believe you will remove the toxic material that corals produced when they fight another coral. That's my opinion. It will also clear the water so light should penetrate further and brighter. the change in light penetration could stress some corals.
  11. Things are coming along great. I had to use some red sea Aptasia-x on a couple of tiny aptasia. The worst of my problems are vermetid snails. But they are not so bad. All the LPS and soft corals are continuing to grow. I have only a couple of SPS. I lost some small heads of rainbow frogspawn to vermetid snails. I don't dose anything and do a water change once a month or so. I change out the filter socks every week and clean the skimmer cup at the same time. I use the mag float with the razor attachment to clean the glass. I don't have any cyano or algae issues. No bubble algae or hair algae. No cyanobacteria outbreaks. I feed every day rods reef food frozen food. I am not able to add any fish or shrimp or clam. I blame it on the fishes I have which are a mystery wrasse and a kole tang. There is no point of buying a shrimp or fish where there is little hope of survival. I need to get some newer pics up. David
