    Man made caves

    Hello everyone, as many experienced reefers know. Caves are important and sometime you need to make some for specific fish. Well I have an idea, it is to take my rock and drill caves into it. Instead of creating caves with multiple rocks. Has anyone done this? If so can you post pictures?

    Live rock in AIO chamber

    Hi all, I have read that running live rock or “rubble” in an all in one back filter chamber isnt a good idea as its a cause of detritus build up and therefore influences nitrate rises. Im curious does this count for larger bits of live rock? Or just the rubble? And im assuming rubble is...
