I’ve been lurking here for a lot of my information,
But obviously not enough if I have to ask,

One issue: my ph is stubborn at 7.6ish despite alkalinity being between 8-9 as per fritz rpm salt...
I wanted to upgrade my light. To get right to the point I have 3 options for hanging my AI prime light. (can't hang it from the ceiling in my house)
1. Flex arm 12 inches
2. Flex arm 18 inches
3. Solid metal mount
When I purchased my AI light last night I went with the 18 in flex arm because I...

I just started this hobby and I am wondering if I put too much sand into my tank? It said I should add about 1 inch and it's approx between 1-1.3 inches at times. I wanted to know everyone's opinion, should I remove some sand? Thanks!
I recently started up a Fluval Evo 13.5g nano tank with my partner. One of the fishes she really wants is a blue damselfish. She seems to like the Starcki damsel the most, but I am a bit wary because even though they are supposedly more peaceful than most damsels, I have heard they tend to get...

Hello, I'm new to the forums - to get this thread up todate - I started my first reef tank towards the end of last summer, a Fluval Evo 13.5 nano tank. I chose a nano because it would fit perfectly on my bar in my basement and thought that being small it would be more affordable for getting my...
I've been researching reef tanks and learning all I can the past 3 months or so, watching lots of BRS TV on youtube and other channels, joined several saltwater groups on FB and have been doing lots of internet reading. Anyway I decided to go with the Fluval Evo 13.5 because of it's peninsula...
This is for anyone that owns a Fluval Evo 13.5 and purchased an intank media basket for chamber one.
So if you bought the intank media basket for chamber 1 and you install it , you notice that water doesn’t run inside the media basket correctly. When I installed mine , It bothered me that 100%...
