    My tanks, gardening, hydroponics, the beach, my kids.
  1. The bottom rocks are definitely set in there good. I'd just remove what wasn't touching the rock. Thanks!
  2. It's my only tank and set up. I'll just leave the sand alone and maybe just deal with removing one of the rock pieces? Do you think that would be ok?
  3. Hey all, it's been at least 6 months since I've been on the forum. Still have my 14g biocbe up and running. Still have the same pair of clowns (6 years now)....I have giant blue mushrooms that are overtaking my tank. They are beautiful but....literally have taken out almost everything attached to my rock. I usually just scrape them out and throw them in the garbage. I figured I'd post and see if anyone wanted any??? Also, how much would it affect my fish and the corals I do have to switch out the sand and/or rock? I feel that's the easiest way to completely get rid of these mushrooms (removing rock), but also my sand is over 8 years old. Someone suggested to me I should get new sand just because it's old. Is this true? Also, are people still using tapatalk for ease of posting pictures and such? Or is this forum able to be accessed via your phones web browser? Thanks!

    I really need to get to this one. Been out of the loop for a while and ready to stock my tank back up! Sent from my SAMSUNG-SGH-I337 using Tapatalk
  5. New Meeting - Pensacola

    I could definitely benefit from a talk about water tests and parameters! Thankfully my tank has leveled out and things stopped dying at this point. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SGH-I337 using Tapatalk
  6. Help! My Tank Is Going Downhill!

    Update: Went to Water World today and grabbed more water for another water change and also had them run a test on my water sample. Richard said everything looked good! Said the ph was at 8.1 and nitrates were below 10 (they were at 40 last time I tested). Yesterday I noticed the one hammer that survived was looking a little better than it had been, as well as my favia. Most of it is white but some of it still looks ok. Guess I'll get back to my regular weekly water changes and hope that ordeal is over with. Now I have room for more stuff!

    I started about a year and a half ago probably because of some algae (even with doing water changes as much as I do) and kept using it up until recently when you guys suggested I take it out. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SGH-I337 using Tapatalk Kevin if you are ever over in Bellview let me know and stop by. I'm usually home. You'd be amazed at how shitty the whole thing looks.

  8. Help! My Tank Is Going Downhill!

    Yes it's been about 3 months now. I add top off every 2 days. Don't recall going any longer than usual for a water change. My aunt watched the tank for a week but that was just a week ago so it was already shot when I left town. I have never in the 6 years of having this tank had an issue like this. Sure things have died here and there but not the whole tank. I've always been good about keeping everything stable even if I didn't test or dose anything. I guess luck runs out sometimes. I've had it good for so long something bad was bound to happen. Lol. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SGH-I337 using Tapatalk

    I've done a test twice. I don't have a test kit but ran it by ww last time. I'll be going again tuesday probably for more water and have them test it again. I didn't ever test for copper because I don't have the test for that. Normally I mix my own water but I ran out of salt so I've just been buying it at ww the last few changes. I don't think the test they do at ww does calcium and mag though. Think it's just the basics. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SGH-I337 using Tapatalk

    I haven't changed anything to begin with. That's the frustrating thing...I have no idea how this problem became a problem. I Just know slowly it started looking like shit and now it looks much much worse and it's happening quickly. :/Sent from my SAMSUNG-SGH-I337 using Tapatalk

    Ok. When should I do another 5g if I did one yesterday? Sent from my SAMSUNG-SGH-I337 using Tapatalk

    The carbon is a few weeks old. Will take it off for a few days. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SGH-I337 using Tapatalk
  13. Help! My Tank Is Going Downhill!

    Just did another 5g water change. Did one monday also. Tank looks hoooorrible. What should I do with carbon? I'm currently using it and have been for about a month. No gfo. Should I take it out? Change it? Keep it? I'm so over this.... Sent from my SAMSUNG-SGH-I337 using Tapatalk hard to get a pic showing the actual colors but you get the point. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SGH-I337 using Tapatalk
  14. Help! My Tank Is Going Downhill!

    I sure will, Kevin. Looks like I will just be waiting on things to level out then restock!! Have a bunch of room now! Looks empty as hell. Actually, I may need to build an ATO. That would make my life a lot easier. Might need help on that.
  15. Help! My Tank Is Going Downhill!

    I lost: the frogspawn, austrailomusa, toadstool leather, both pieces of pink cap, torch, rob zombie zoas. The blastos are dying, along with my favia, ricordias, hammer, chalice. All I've got that is doing ok is the rastas (thankfully..but there's only 6), some of the other zoas, 3 tiny anemones are barely alive. Fish are doing fine.
