I have read hundreds of threads about fellow reefers loosing frags and the saying the tank isn't seasoned enough, or the tank isn't mature enough comes up a lot, myself included. OK, I get it, but how long then. What is needed to be...

    Relationships and Tanks

    So I've had a heck of a new year. I broke down my 75 gallon reef tank, which anybody who's done it knows how big a pain that is, but I did it because I didn't have the time for the upkeep. Anyway I stuffed as much as I could into a 10 gallon, and it turned out to be a pretty cute looking tank...
