For sale I have a used Reef Octopus eSsence S-130 Internal Protein Skimmer and a 10 gallon Ruby colored Trigger ATO reservoir. Both used for approximately 5 months. Both are in perfect operating condition. New system came with an ato reservoir and required a larger skimmer so no use for these...
So I purchased a watermelon favia coral a month ago and it seem to be doing well and all of a sudden today it got a hole so I got worried and wondered if they were hitchhikers or a disease or something else
I just don’t want to worry my self over the coral if it’s dying
Any info would be helpful
Hello! My names Caroline, I’m 19 years old and have been in the aquarium hobby for about 2 years (freshwater only).
My boyfriend knows SO much about reef tanks!
Me, on the other hand, I’ve recently became more interested in reef tanks & was wondering if anybody has some helpful advice?

We all have the same love for reefing but what’s your favorite part of it. I’m curious as to why everyone’s in the hobby or what got them into reefing? Is it the corals or the fish? Do you like buying a frag and watching it grow? Maybe it’s the whole tiny ecosystem you control and you can see...
I’m pretty new to the reefing scene, started about a year ago with a 55g and quickly realized, that tank size wasn’t gonna cut it. Had a lot of success with it but just to small over all. So I started saving and a year later I found a good deal on a used 180g and a BUNCH of gear, took it home...

If you're thinking of starting out with Acro's my suggestion is a Green Slimer Acropora SPS coral like this one. The Green Slimer Acropora is not as delicate to keep as other Acro's and will tolerate certain differences in water parameter differences.
Thanks for checking out my recent and...
Ok! So I started this thread long ago “so I thought” but then I couldn’t find it. I am now 7 months into this adventure and 3 months into the tank itself. So I will bring you up to speed and then continue live. I have journaled and documented along the way. Many on my IG @Reeferstrong

I’ve used BRS reefsaver rock for a long time. I’m setting up a 180 and looking to purchase some rock. I can’t find a single review about the biotek rock, yet it looks the same as the reef saver and about a $1 per pound cheaper. Any experience with the biotek rock. Thank you.

I bought a ReefSavvy 21" ghost overflowthat flows 2000 gph for a new aquarium build I'm doing. Of course, my plans changed. It's brand new and was never installed. ReefSavvy doesn't accept returns, so my loss your gain. To get all the info on the overflow, Google: "reef savvy ghost overflow 21"...
