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?
I’m getting out of the hobby, everything must go!

What are your thoughts on purging mobile pests from live rock with hypersaline water?
Explanation from KP Aquatics:

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...

I’ve been having trouble with deciding whether or not to redo my Fluval 13.5 aquascape. This has especially been in mind since my last water change, when my big structure tipped and now feels like an accident waiting to happen.
Here’s how it currently looks:
I’m conflicted, because I...

so I recently bought a tank! My first ever reef tank! I’ve got a question regarding aquascaping for my aquarium, and whether I should go with floating rockscape or a bottom rockscape.
I’m curious as to the pros and cons of each, and how each one will affect my tank?

I have Haitian rock in my garage sitting for quiet some time now. I do wood work , car repairs and some staining close by. What is the best way to soak and clean my rocks? Muriatic acid cleaning will definitely be last resort and hope I don't have to ever go that route. Can I soak in RODI water...
Wanna get rid of these 2 rocks to clear up space. Zoa rock has a couple of aptasia but nothing major. Also has 2 toadstool frags, a 5" nepthea, 100-150 egeal eye zoas, 20-30 scamled egg zoas, 5-10 glitch zoas, and some other random zoas.
Mushroom rock has about 35 .2"-1" red/green shrooms
Funny, I posted about my 55 gallon peninsula earlier today, asking for opinions on whether or not I should remove some rock as I felt like I had too much, and not enough room for my fish to swim! Well now I have the opposite problem, where I feel like I don’t have enough rock or places...
I’ve got a 55 gallon set up as a peninsula. The tank is about 4 months old, and my question today is: can you have too much rock? I am worried that my tank won’t allow enough swimming room for additional fish, as I’ve already seen some minor aggression (territorial, clowns chase goby...
About 5 months ago I set up my first tank ever and chose saltwater. It’s a Innovative Marine 20 gallon AIO. I feel like something is missing and don’t know an exact time line on how fast a tank of this size matures. I will step by step walk you guys through what I’m curious about, stocking...
I am cycling my current tank with the help of 3 live rocks and a bit of sand from a mature aquarium sitting in a pantyhose at the back of the sump. The problem is I didn't have a heater for a day and the water was really cold, will the bacteria have died and how long do you think the cycle will...
