    I decided to treat my 10gal tank in my office with one capsule. Unfortunately, I can't have a camera a work, but the bryopsis had just about covered every...including my sand. I treated the tank approximately 10 days ago, and the tank is nearly completely bryopsis free. What is still there is white and dying. Completely effective...I did not witness any side-effects to anything. Happy Reefing.

    Truly and honestly clean stable water, food, and adequate lighting is what gives corals their best growth and color. I did experiment with some additives and found they did more harm than good. Partly because my water changes are enough to resolve any deficiency or imbalance of micro nutrients/elements. Also because I found these additives changed my water chemistry and the corals had to readapt to the environment. Every single time I a attempt something new or flashy I find the corals just do better with the basics. I use Kalk for my Cal/ALK supplementation, with some vinegar to boost my bacteria power. Added potassium nitrate when NO3 hit zero, and Seachem Florish Phosphorus for when my PO4 hit zero. However I do find that some things have a specific place. Like Amino Acids can help supplement a starving reef tank. If you find a supplement you would like to try for a specific purpose try some for a few weeks. If you do not achieve the specific purpose you purchased it for then maybe you don't need it. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Okay folks, we are having an open house Sunday 1/8/2017 From 11am to 12pm when the store opens. Feel free to come by later in the day. Check out the new store. Best coral selection in the Panhandle. You'd have to travel to Orlando to get this kind of stuff this cheap. Lots of high end fire as well as beautiful entry level stuff. We cover all bases. Dry goods below all local competitors pricing. So here is the kicker. Each FPRS member that attends can pick one free frag. Any frag $40 or lower, your choice. One per member screen name present. Our way of saying thanks for stopping buy. Plus once you see the shop, you will not shop anywhere else. There is no need. SB Reefs 7841 Pine Forest Rd Pensacola, Fl. 32526 (850)898-3707

    Just some more pics. Sorry my montis suck. My Kole eats on them. It doesnt seem to effect anything other than PE though. The rainbow browned out because of high nutrients that I think I have gotten under control now and its coloring back up.

    You can go to the local big box hardware store and get liquid stump remover. It's potassium nitrate. Raise both with one dose. I'd keep it small to start with maybe 20ml a day to start. Sent from my SM-J700P using Tapatalk

    Welcome to our little closet society of saltwater fanatics. One of these days we'll stand infront of the world and proclaim that we are reefers and proud of it. And we will frag anything if we think we could sell it, just so well can get our next fix. "Come here you little rock flower I've been looking for you" Sent from my SM-J700P using Tapatalk

    Wow. I ended up with a serious case of lazy Or, maybe I just needed a break, lol. In any event, my goal from long ago of having at least the first few fish introduced before the kids and grandson visit within a couple weeks from now isn't going to happen!!! I'm finally getting back to it though and working on the canopy now, and getting those lights up is really the only remaining hold up. I have a long list of other things, but nothing that would be a show stopper. I hope to have some pics of an almost done canopy soon!! In the meantime, it hit me that the tank already cycled from the pukani and has been sitting there just circulating for over three months now. So, I figured with no lights, and no predators it was a perfect time to get some pods going. I wish it had crossed my mind sooner. I used the new member buy one get one from Algae Barn so introduced over 11k pods, and also have enough phyto to feed them until I have other things in the tank. LOL, amazing how excited my wife was just looking in the pod bag with a flashlight. I'm close enough now though I think I may run by Mike's this weekend and get a thing or two to get the quarantine clock going Maybe a firefish, and a yellow prawn goby if he has both in right now, or just browse and see what jumps out into a bag heading home, lol.

    I paid less than $25 I think for both a 12x12 sheet of clear and a tube of 16 solvent but it was not weld on brand. I would just cover the holes and not try to get an insert to fill because a flat piece will be easier to get to seal. Probably just do a 5x5 or 4x4 patch which would be over kill but give you plenty of surface for a bond even if you are terrible at it like myself. Richard Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    I just ordered a 12x12 inch sheet off Amazon for pretty cheap Fred that could be cut to plug the holes easily. Or you could just bulkhead them and put a valve on them as well and use for drains or a closed loop as well. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Just joined this forum and would like to join FPRS. How do I do that? Thanks FYI, my rig is a 125 gal with two overflows/return pump, sump with filter pad, charcoal, PhosGuard, & Biomax bags, skimmer, UV filter/pump, GFO filter/pump, & new Neptune Apex system with an ATO setup. Look forward to meeting everyone at next get-together. My best, Gary

    I got a Octo VarioS 6 (1720 gal/hr) DC pump about 6 months ago and so far it has worked extremely well. I have had no jamming problems and it is absolutely quiet. I have no reservations about recommending one of these pumps.

    Fishing, it's most likely just a brown algea. But i wouldn't worry about it. That's what a fuge is for to grow all the ugly algea so it won't grow in the main tank. I've got all kinds of critters and algea in my sump that i wouldn't want in the display and as long as they stay in the sump we all can be happy. Sent from my SM-J700P using Tapatalk

    Hey Everyone, Well after trying and trying, I finally learned the right way to get us off Google's Dangerous Site list. The site has been reviewed by Google and we got their stamp of approval. So we are being removed from the list. Woo Hoo If anyone has continued problems, please let me know.

    Ok for what? A reef tank? Dude if you're on top of it, a 6x6x6 can be a killer little reef. It's your desire to make it a good one and your willingness to put the time in. Sent from my SM-J700P using Tapatalk

    I hate aquascaping. Every tank I ever had was back when the norm was to just pack in as much rock as possible My artistic talents end with drawing a stick-man. Anyway, made a start today. PVC is still visible, and each will be capped off with one final rock. Mostly looking for stability and keeping rock away from the back and sides. IF I manage am visualizing an old fashion "Just stack the rock" sloping from each back corner, except stable. The shelf on top of two large pukani will also stay, but orientation may change. I still have two more jumbo pukani I'm chiseling some caves in and no clue where to put them, along with a tote full of other pukani and the corner of my pool deck covered in Marco Rocks and BRS reef saver yet. I guess I at least had a little fun while I can't work on much else right now Will need to keep stacking!

    Well, tank was delivered by ABF yesterday and moved to the stand by the movers this morning. From the stand, to the wood, to the foam, to the tank things are off just a tiny bit here and there. Everything seems well supported though so likely just me looking for perfection. LOL, not sure how I'd move anything to shift it all around anyway.

    Did some adjustments on lighting color and ramping times on the Kessil. So far everything seems to have either not noticed or has improved. My clowns have decided to host my Duncan. They seem to be being gentle with it so I am fine with it. I added a huge Melenarus wrasse to the tank Saturday. None of the other fish missed a beat. The new guy is fitting perfectly. Eating like a pig and no aggression from others or to others.
