I found yesterday's poll on the use of an auto-feeder interesting. Over 62% of responses indicated they do not use an auto-feeder. Not sure why, but I honestly thought more folks used them. So if you're manually feeding the fish, it might be interesting to see how often we are feeding our critters. Even if you do use an auto-feeder, let us know your feeding frequency.
I'm thinking of mounting some encrusting montis and maybe some shrooms on the center overflow of my RSR 250. Would love opinions on this, particularly if you think its a bad idea. Let me know if you have experiences with this.
Pics are always welcome!!
Wondering how many actually target feed your corals? If so, do you have a regularly scheduled feeding or just do it randomly? Or maybe just your NPS corals if you have them? Or do you simply rely on your light source and let them "eat" from what's ever in the water column?
Great conversation taking place over the last several days (found here) regarding the involvement of your spouse or significant other. One of the things that came up is the sex of the main tank keeper in the house. I know this has been discussed before, and since it's difficult to tell by a screen name, let's do an updated poll of the membership.
How involved is your spouse/significant other with your hobby? Vote in the poll above.
All leftover corals will be an additional 25% off live sale prices until Tuesday at 10am est. All other frags on the website will be discounted 25% as well.

Do you guys / gals leave the inner part of your magnetic glass cleaners in the tank? I have always left mine in, but I pulled it out the other day and it stunk really bad like rotten eggs. It's probably been close to a year since I've pulled it out lol. I'm thinking I need to be cleaning it a little more often

Help us decide which short we will have printed for our 2018 Partner Member drive!
Which version of the shirt do you like best? Remember these come in short sleeve too but would not have the sleeve print for obvious reasons.
1. Was one that you had already seen before we'll call this one: Square Original
2. This one is a pocket logo with sleeve text only we'll call it: Pocket Logo
And here is the logo that you can see better:
3. This was the original design added to the back with the pocket logo on front. Not sure how I feel about that back design. We'll call it: Front and Back
4. Front Circle Logo with back R2R Logo
The alkalinity part of two part additive system can generally be formulated with bicarbonate and/or carbonate. Bicarbonate gives a slight pH lowering effect and carbonate gives a pH boost, and any mixture of them can be used to get any desired pH effect in between.
But those are not the only choices. Hydroxide can also be used, and food grade sodium hydroxide is inexpensive. The pH boost is quite a bit higher than for carbonate (about 2x), and the concentration can be made much higher since it is much more soluble than sodium bicarbonate or carbonate.
For manual dosing, such a product might not be a good choice with too rapid of a big pH boost.
Today, however, dosing pumps have become so pervasive that such a product can easily be used and could have substantial benefits over existing two parts.
Additionally, I think any current manufacturer of two part systems could likely swap out the carbonate and bicarbonate and swap in hydroxides with no reformulation needed (stressing "I think"). So your favorite company could easily come out with a new version, and the new versions could be made more concentrated, if desired (at the least, there'd be less cost to ship less water).
Just read this news and thought you all would like to know!
The most iconic aquarium fish from Hawaiis’ aquarium fishery, Yellow Tangs graze on a Hawaiian Coral Reef. For the moment, a Hawaii Supreme Court ruling means that not a single one will be harvested for the aquarium trade.
"On the evening of Wednesday, September 6th, Hawaii’s State Supreme Court issued a ruling that effectively halts Hawaii’s commercial aquarium fisheries for the foreseeable future."
