    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...

    Will this Leach into My Tank?

    Hey guys, so I was doing my monthly maintenance cleaning out my powerheads and return pumps and such. Recently, I changed out the propellers in one of my Accela return pumps because the rod holding the propeller broke. So I ordered a replacement one through Premium Aquatics...

    Rusted Impellers

    MP40 cracked and magnet completely rusted

    My MP40 wet side has cracked and the magnets completely rusted... it is several years old and worked flawslessly, but still shouldn't fail like this. I have had a few ICP results showing high metals and couldn't see anything obvious, I changed cabinet hinges etc and eventually after a few months...

    Yellow Tang with pop eye after rusted blade fell in aquarium

    Hey guys a rusty blade I used to cut zoas fell in my aquarium and my guess it was in there for 4 hours. My chalices and candy cane died and my blastos are closed. Everything else is fine, torches Goni zoa shrooms. My yellow tang did develop pop eye though it looks pretty bad. All other fish are...
