    Can a refugium be narrow and tall tank?

    My cabinet is in the peninsula style, with doors on both sides of the cabinet. I obviously need a normal-sized sump, for protein skimmer, ClariSea, Return pump. But, next to the sump I could fit a narrow, tall tank to make a much bigger, taller refugium than I could have in-sump. For example: 7...

    Build Thread Inland Reef's Coastal Lagoon

    Lets talk about gorgonians... They're an underappreciated coral that can be very beautiful if highlighted in the right way. About a year and a half ago, I started seeing them pop up in my local stores and I started collecting (more like hoarding) all of them, at least the photosynthetic ones...

    Build Thread Tigahboy's Macroalgae Tank(s)

    This is a love story. About a [tigah]boy who fell in love with macroalgae... So I became totally enamored with macroalgae when I added them to a couple of my prior reef tanks (you can find them here in this thread), and I've always been drawn to the freshwater planted tank/scape aesthetic, so...

    Hi all, I am a marine biologist and need some seaweed of the genus Asparagopsis sp. (Limu kohu) for my research. I wonder if any of you have cultures, or know where I could purchase it, as getting it from the sea is complicated nowadays. Thanks a lot!

    ESV Ionic B 2 part and Macroalgae

    So I am thinking to switching to esv ionic b two part to simplify my dosing. However, I currently dose chaetogro as my macroalgae would die without it (as it has before since I do no water changes and quickly depleted the relevant trace elements even when dosing red sea iron and such. Has anyone...

    Invasive macroalgae

    One of the first things I bought for my newbie reef tank was a rock with several mushrooms. It had a tiny piece of this attached. Now it's trying to take over my tank. It's a constant battle to keep it removed and it clings to everything. I am setting up a new tank with a sump and refugium...

    Need ID! Longest Algae Ever?

    I've never seen an algae this long. I'd say the longest strand is nearly a foot. Doesn't appear to be hair algae, more like a weird brownish clearish macroalgae of some sort? It's attached to the clamshell. Trochus and astrea snails simply eat whats growing on top of it.

    Help with ID of Blenny

    Hi guys, Firstly I would like clarification on what type of blenny this is. Is it an Orange spot blenny? It seems to have very close similarities but doesn't have the little "antenna" on its head. This brings me to the second question: just what is the lump on his head? Just behind his eye...

    misc. algae & macro in refugium (in sump)

    in the ideal world, we would love to have only Chaeto (or some prefer Caulerpa) in their fuge (sump) but in saying that, if worst come to worst, the refugium is filled with all sort of misc. algaes i.e. GHA, Caulerpa, Chaeto, Red Dragon, Bryopsis .. does it really matter? I mean as long as they...

    where to find captive-bred royal gramma? and other newb questions

    I have read online that royal gramma's were able to be captive-bred long ago, but I don't see them for sale (at least not with the specific label that they were captive-bred)? Also, I added a royal gramma a week ago. She seemed to be doing well on day 1 and 2, but has disappeared since. I...

    Which non-sexual macroalgae for refugium?

    I've been doing some reading on refugiums and their benefits and I think I may want to run a refugium for a few reasons. Mainly for microfauna populations and also the benefit of nutrient export. While reading I’ve come to find it’s not as simple as getting a bunch of macroalgae and putting it...

    Macroalgae for Display?

    Hey Everyone, Anyone have recommendations for macroalgae in the DT? Avoiding chaeto since it can cover everything up. Looking for aesthetics and the usual nitrate reduction properties. Also a little safe haven for pods. I have heard of shaving bush but looking for more options thanks!
