Reef and Marine Fish Forum
Its taken me a year since first starting to buy the equipment before i got to the point where i thought i was ready to take the dive and actually get the first water cycle started. I finally did that last week and have since realised how much more i need to understand! Thats not to say i wasn't expecting to have to learn more, just that its somewhat disappointing having carefully prepared for so long!
Anyway, i have an eaReef 900s, Radion XR30 Gen 3, Nyos Quantum 120 Skimmer, Jecod...
Sorry if i sound daft im new to the forum scene and dont like asking but im clueless with my new fishy toys i purchased last weekend. Set the radions up over my 5ft mixed reef tank and ran them last 2 days no problems....thing is i just dont like the last owners settings as such and wanting to import a schedule from somebody. Sat there all day yesterday trying to figure it out but no use. Like i said my tank has sps at the top with few softies and lots of lps on the bottom and middle.How do...
Hi guys, at weekend i drove over and met Phil077
to drop some zoas off for him
When i got there i was met by a massive tank and a happy fella who explained his fish tank is his absolute passion as he is retired but he has big trouble getting around not only does he not drive but has a walking stick
He has family scattered around but feels like he is putting them out of their way and as we all know we could hardly drag a family member who knows nothing of our hobby around an aquarium...
Good afternoon all,
Now that my new baby has arrived and is currently sat on the new stand, its time to start on the plumbing, i have, rather badly tried to draw some picture to give you an idea, if you could please just check it and make sure ive not missed anything or completely messed it up.
The return pump is a DCT-8000 variable pump, because the pump is a variable step, there is no ball valve to control the flow.
This is the main drain, I have 3 holes, 2 for drain, 1 for return,...
Back again with my lighting issues.
I rained my lighting in and manually removed the brown algae. This was last week.
Now the brown algae is rearing its ugly head again. Only lightly but still concerning.
It's destroyed 3 small Spls and a medium Lps.
Should I just tough it out?
I have also stopped my NoPox dosing as of today. Could the dosing be the cause? Any helpers, please?

before i start this is not a sales thread.

they have been growing in the tank some time some of them a few years they where all bought as 'grade A ultra' or rainbows they where all bought as small frags upto 5 heads bar the big green which had about 10 heads.
i will list a rough head count on top of each picture
Hello. This is my first post and I'm in the very very early stages of looking into a marine tank. With the high costs associated with all the various equipment (especially lights) I have had a look at the rapid led kits.
Anyone on here used them. For just under £1000 shipped I can get http://www.rapidled.com/solderless-125g-tank-diy-kit/ with controller.
In your opinion would I be getting a light that rivals the hydra 52s or even the radion xr30 pros. It would be a £1300...
hi fellow salty members
I have a juwel lido 200 that I am converting to marine. I would greatly appreciated some suggestion on led lighting please as it keeps giving me a massive headache trying to work out what would be best to use.
the led lighting must fit within the pre-existing hood of the aquarium, as I have parrots and past experience demonstrated to me open top is bad plan, as I regularly had to rescue parrots from the water.
I want corals in my aquariums so led must be...
