    Should I bleach cure live rock that's had no load for 2 months?

    I recently purchased a second-hand 260g reef with a few fish, coral and live rock. During the move, the tank developed a leak. The tank is now resealed and curing, but it's been a long process and the fish and coral died within a few days after the move. I spent a whole weekend scrubbing hair...

    Unknown snail

    At least three of these guys managed to hitchhike into my new nano tank on live rock. I will try to get better pictures tomorrow when the lights are back on, but they look like oyster drills to me. As far as I know, oyster drills are on the Atlantic side of FL and the rock came from the gulf...

    Hello I've Fallen Off the Wagon Again

    Hello all, I first joined the hobby in 2008 as a teenager after working hard to save up money, I ignorantly went into a big box pet store seeking a complete reef tank build.

    What glue holds sand to sculpt rock work????

    I’m thinking Elmer’s glue non toxic would work to help mold sand on to live rock. I have buckets full of white sand I’m not using and instead of using mortar I want to use some glue and sand to mold rock work. Any suggestions on the best glue I could get in large size such as Elmer’s gallon glue???

    Tank Transfer ‼️‼️

    I want to use the same rock that I have in my current tank into my new tank. I have some algae on the rock at the moment, would it be ok to do some sort of dip to get the algae off the rock when placing it into the new tank? I don’t want any of that algae going into the new tank. What should I do?
