    Build Thread A Warrant's 32g BioCube Build

    A little bit about myself, I've always been interested in marine life and never had the courage to try out a reef tank. My mother was a biology teacher and as a kid I was glued to anything the BBC produced that was related to the ocean. I spent my high school years working at a pet store in...

    Small fast worm in tank

    Hello everyone. A few days ago I was feeding my candy cane coral (a very small head) when a worm came out the rock and snatched a piece of food. I didn’t get a good look at the worm and it pulled the food back into a hole very, very fast. On previous days I have seen a small clear worm, very...

    Switching Sand on 7 Month Old Tank. Live or Dry?

    Well I originally got CaribSea Hawaiian black live sand for my tank when I started 7 months back. Between parts of the sand sticking to my magnetic cleaners and scratching my glass and the creeping suspicion it is leeching metals into my tank, I want to change out the sand completely. It's...

    Orange Spots on Back Wall?

    I can't get a decent picture of them for the life of me because you can really only see it with the blues on, but I've started noticing orange (almost looks rust colored) spots along the back wall of my tank. Anybody have any idea what it could be or if anyone else has had this? It's only on...

    Recommended Kessil Light for a nano tank?

    I have a 20gallon tank that has a footprint of 15” x 20” and is 16” tall. Planning on it being a mixed tank. I’ve been looking at the a80, a160, and a360. I feel like the a80 would be too weak and the a360 would be overkill. Do y’all think the a160 is the right choice for this tank?
