    As the title states, do you have multiple testing tools or kits available in case you get an extremely odd result when using a refractometer (or something similar that is digital in readout)? How often have you found yourself double-checking or having to…

    I've done it a few times, but I would first use the biggest spray option or bit for your pressure washer to make sure you aren't throwing rocks around or any hard things that would end up scratching the heck out of the tank walls. I would also avoid any…

    Have you tried to grow any of the grasses out there, inside of your tanks, and did you have good luck in getting it to take off and grow?

    I know that many may believe that seagrass, manatee grass, turtle grass, or eelgrass are macro-algae (and grow for…

    Out of all of them that you have found, either that are within your own tank, or others, what is the craziest critter that you have seen, and what made it so crazy? Yes, this also does include those random hitchhikers that seem to sneak in over time that…

    Looks like they still have some Cyber Monday deals going on (won't be tracked here), I'll be curious if they keep them going the full week or end it after tonight once the website refreshes.

    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

    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…
