    I am wanting to build a mangrove tank with macro algae, gorgonians, etc. and acquired a handful of mangrove pods.

    However, I'm seeing threads about how slow these grow in a tank and was wondering if there was a way to purchase a more established mangrove…

    What is the schedule that you have set for the lights on your tanks?

    For me, I have mine to slowly come on around 6:30 AM (right when everyone gets up so the living room lights don’t scare them with shadows) and then turn off fully around 6:30PM slowly…

    Almost pulled the trigger on the 120-gallon can't kit set for the turtle tank - but I had to take some measurements since I’d need to rebuild the dry dock I have (as it's far too short length-wise), and I also need to see how big the turtle will grow…

    Looks like Petsmart has some deals going on now, following the Walmart week of deals aspect. So far seems like a less-than-normal sale (compared to previous years).

    Are there any special requirements when transferring clams from one tank to another?

    Are there specifically any helpful tips along these questions;
    1. Is there any special aspects when holding these outside of water for a few seconds?
    2. Should I clean the shell

    Thread
    Do any of you pressure wash your acrylic tanks? I’m debating on doing this with some of my larger ones since it would be a breeze to wash off any algae or limestone that builds up over time in places that are hard to reach when I do a wipe-down of the…

    Has anyone setup one of these units from Reef Factory, and if so is it worth the cost of the unit? I love the fact that they made this to compete with Alkatronic, but it seems to just be a testing machine compared to one that would add in a buffer as…

    We're starting to see errors being generated from Tapatalk (nothing critical, but it is created degraded with functionality so some features of Tapatalk may show as empty when searching). I've created a support ticket with Tapatalk for them to resolve…

    I don’t think that I have ever heard of someone wanting to add that in a saltwater tank, but yes it can be done for fish that might be used to darker waters or saltwater areas like Florida swamp areas. I’d just make sure you check the pH and hardness…

    Post
    Yeah I’d say dependent on the tank size that would be a pretty good price overall. The bigger you get though, the more is becomes a higher and higher cost since you need more/better overall equipment to handle the additional water volume.

    On the net it was saying the cost is between $300 and $500 on average. Well, that confirms my assumption that it wasn't cheap. Well, who on here is willing to pay that?

    Here is a good picture of the level of black beard algae I’m attacking. Ironically it's cleared up from a large portion of the tank (while also turning my plants pretty bare in terms of leaves and whatnot). Otherwise, dosing hydrogen peroxide seems to…
