    Epoxy resin

    Is epoxy resin safe in our aquariums? Is there a certain brand or type that is safe? I see a lot of cool resin projects done. It would be interesting to know if we could use this inside of our aquariums safely.

    Help with Salt

    Hi, so I'm running low on salt and have been using regular instant ocean. I wanted to try the reef crystals because it is marketed toward corals and it is cheaper on Amazon at the moment. Would it be okay to switch salts? Tank is about 2 months.

    Is this Coralline?

    Hi all! Tank is about 100 days old. Within the past couple days I’ve noticed these little dots on the back of my aquarium. There’s also a couple on the powerhead and a return nozzle. It doesn’t fluoresce but it’s a solid color and looks lightly pink. Can anyone help ID? Thanks!
