...The only thing I have now is the API quick start?
Will my new fish be alright? Or what should I do?
I am so new at this and obviously panicking as I am trying for nothing to happen to them? #reefsquad
I would appreciate anything that will help me keep my newbies alive #reefsquad
...- You could choose either filter floss or socks
- Featured an AquaC skimmer
- Trickle filter contained Eheim Substrat Pro and Lifegard Aquatics Bio-Mate
- Came with a UV sterilizer and a logbook (not pictured)
Please explain what you guys know and if you had any experience with it.
...Randy is. @Randy Holmes-Farley what are the possible effects of low iron, zinc, manganese, and cobalt on a reef system? Will the absence cause problems for the op? I imagine a trace elements solution could boost those for you but no idea how fast the numbers could be safely raised #reefsquad
I have a few hundred pounds of rock, that I've had cured in large garbage bin. Going on about two months now, while I had my front panel changed.
How long can the rock be brought out into open air ( to redo aquascape) before you start losing beneficial bacteria?
...chemical warfare as the tank is very small. If I could describe the demise of my Xenia, it would be like the polyps were getting skinnier and skinnier, until they turned gray and just fell off. I went from 100 wish polyps to probably 15-20 now. Would running carbon be a good idea? #reefsquad
...this., which I'd rather not use anymore if possible. I have 3 small clown fish, cleaner shrimp that has molted twice and my big red fire shrimp that has molted 3 times already! He is my favorite. Also, this is only a 40 gal. tank, wish I got much larger but I suppose it'll do for now...
...i really better not use, but here are some pics of what some has turned out like?
As i’ve said I’ve never done this before - should I use this or will it create big problems for startup of my new tank? I don’t want to stuff up before i even get going!!
Thanks so much everyone!!!!
...from nothing here, buying all the components is a bit daunting. Taking this into account, is there a vendor that has great phone support in helping me determine the best components. My main concern is getting the sump, media, skimmer, and heater setup correctly for my tank size. #reefsquad
...strand of dino covered algae. Anyways, what should I do next? Should I just wait, start adding a cleanup crew again, or do something else? #reefsquad
This is getting awfully frustrating because the algae is starting to smother the very few corals I have left, and I’m not sure I can add a...
...before the algae. Since I have not done a substantial water change in quite a while could the tank be iodine deficient? I’ve been dosing phosphates so I’m not sure nutrient deficiency is the problem and my nitrates are at 30. Would it be worth a shot so dose small amounts of iodine? #reefsquad
...with a aqua knight A029 and it puts my 29 gallon to shame. Should I replace the Kessil with 2 of the Aqua Knight A029's? Should I take the Nirvana Palys and move them to the 5 gallon to see if the light just isn't enough in the 29 gallon? Thanks for all the reply's and help in advance...
...I don't want to get rid of the film algae and Diatoms. Hand removal is extremely difficult because the xenia is quite delicate and attached to the rock. I was originally thinking flucanazole or vibrant, but there are other algaes that I really need and don't want to wipe out. Any advice...
Alright #reefsquad #Reefsquadleaders so lights are down. New larger finished ply on the wall ready for plumbing. Only electrical left is running the temp system. Sump glass is ready for pick up. And traded some coral in for some cash.
Now the question,
Do you buy Radions or the new Sky's...
...deal, but I don't want to take chances either. The vast bulk of the dinos were on the now removed sand so i doubt toxins are in nearly as high concentrations. I also have plenty of diatoms and film algae as well as GHA for inverts to eat. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. #reefsquad

...tank with stand but nothing else. I am a long time scuba diving instructor and like things natural, so my tank will be as close as to real as I can get it. I can definitely use your help. Thank you for allowing me to join the forum. I am sure to learn a lot from you guys and gals.
