  1. #1 Default Fish tank thread 
    The picture thread is cluttered with fish chat, and the new stuff thread is being cluttered with chat as well. I ll let pete put this one wherever he wants. I assume it will just stay in the lounge.

    Ok, Thanh, Mike lee, and kyle; have at it.

    I'm having a little problem with Aiptasia in my Elos70 so I decided to try out this stuff called Joe's Juice..



    No lie it's a milky white substance you put into a syringe and then you squirt a little on the mouth of the Aiptasia anemone prolly someone's idea of a joke but this stuff is ROCKS!!! It's so cool watching them implode.. it's like they think it's food, suck it in then count 1-2-3 and BUKAKKEEEE! and none of the corals around it seem to be affected..

    anyways I still have half a bottle if anyone wants to borrow some..

    heard seahorses are hard to raise in captivity and require a lot of attention

    I've found seahorses to be hardy. Biggest issues is keeping the temperature down, and getting them to eat (ESP the wild ones)

    I have never raised seahorses before but they only eat like live baby brine shrimp.. which means you'll have to grow your own supply and you can't put them in a tank with other aggressive fish.. Never heard of the Roxbury Fish store..

    yea its only what i heard and have been reading but i do remember when i used to work at a pet store they did had some of their sea horses in like a 75 gallon tank with coral and live rock and the only mechanical filtration was a hang on filter/skimmer that was too small for that tank size. I also dont ever recall them doing periodic water testing or changes either. not sure what they fed them or if they even fed them at all (this place only fed their fish like every few days). They seemed to do fine from what i saw.

    who knows if they died right after they got bought

    hey reefers,

    So I have some LED lights and after 6 weeks my seeds still aren't growing and my plants look weak. I water them often but no luck.

    ror

    legit q

    Subject: dripping kalkwasser.

    on my old tank, to top off, i would use an air line and drip from my reservoir. it was gravity fed, and i just used a ball valve to control the drip.

    how do i do this with the top off tank on plane with the sump? cant use gravity. (duh)
    would an air lifter pump work? do i have to worry about calcium deposits screwing up the pump?

    i use a small pump to feed my calcium reactor..they are only like $15.. I can never get the gravity feed to work reliably

    This is the pump I use...and it looks like they make a small pre filter now to address your concerns

    What other equipment would i be looking at if i wanted to start a reef tank equipment wise?

    so far i planned

    Elos Nano - which pretty much has all the main things (tank, stand, skimmer, pumps, piping)
    Maxspect G2-110 LED lights
    ReefKeeper Lite Plus (Head unit, power strips, temp probe, ph probe, SL1 unit, and a few other things)


    Recommended powerhead?
    Recommended RO/DI water machine thing? Maybe i should buy RO/DI water in the begining?

    anything else?
