Just a quick question. I've recently set up a new tank, given that my old 7ft set up was cycled 10 years ago it's been a while and I'm a bit rusty. Downsized to an Aqua One 110liter set up with 2 small wavemaker powerheads, LED lighting, heater and external filter. Starting off with ocean rock and sand, no friends about to seed some sand or rock from and none of my LFS selling live rock with one telling me it's banned now? Not sure how true that is.
Either way given what sand / rock I'm...
I've been a bit quiet on here recently, mainly because things were going well, until I came home from work tonight...
Devastated. All my fish are dead. It seems a sea cucumber (which I didn't realise was even still in the tank and alive) has crawled into a powerhead and poisoned the tank.
The inverts (crabs, snails, shrimp, urchin and clam) seem OK so far, though a couple of my montipora have lost a bit of colour; now looking a bit grey.
I've pulled out the following fish:...
Hi, I need some help with my green bubble tip anemone. I have had it for about 6 weeks now and i thought it was doing ok, it opens up nice and big and my clown has started hosting it, I target feed it once a week and it seem ok, but over the last week I have noticed that maybe once during the day it Shrivels up very small and looks like its mouth open. And today it was doing it again but this time it looked like something coming from it’s mouth. Any help would be very greatful
Hi looking for a bit of help dosing, just starting my venture into dosing & not sure if I am over complicating things ! Had a read through Esox dosing thread & I can’t get my head around the calculations.

Merry Christmas to you and yours, hope you're having fun!
I'll keep this short and hope it's not too much of a brain drain question for the Xmas break.
My tank is still maturing, with no concerns really, set up early October. I've noticed my Kh is on the low side, 7 to 7.2. When I was getting things together I bought used kamoer dosers, dosing containers etc for future use. I also purchased what I thought were general supplements Kh, Mg and Ca. I went to read the instructions on the Kh...

Short story over the last month, we have lost 6 out of 10 fish which we now believe was/ is white spot, acted on the advice of the LFS but after a lot of research we now have a hospital tank set up and will be putting the remaining fish in to treat with copper in the next couple of day just waiting for the treatment to arrive tomorrow, only worry is the...
I bought my first tank, an Interpet Fish Pod 120, a couple of years ago with the intention of keeping it FOWLR. Worked great for me, but then I decided that I want corals as well. I shopped around for a new tank, but they were too expensive for me. So, I thought I could give it a try and build my own reef tank.
I bought a low iron glass tank from the internet for a reasonable price. With 80 cm of length I had enough space for an integrated sump. So I sacrificed about 1/5 of the length...
