  1. Bunch of live rock for sale

    Open to trades for small frags or offer on the rock. It's just gotta go! I have no need for it.
  2. Bunch of live rock for sale

    I've got two different sets of live rock for sale. I've got 3 larger pieces (6, 10, and 12 lbs) for $35 for all three pieces. They have a good bit of coraline, no pests that I can see, came from a tank with no fish in it. Also have all rock I just took out of my 14g biocube. There are 3 pieces, not sure of type of weight but they are COVERED with a beautiful blue mushroom. Two of the pieces have some purple encrusting montipora (I think that's what it is at least). There's a good bit on it. $35 for all of that rock. There are tiny brittle stars in the rock from my tank, as well as probably some worms maybe. No pests. It's the rock that's been in my tank for about 5 years now. There is also probably some green hair algae present on a tiny bit of the rock from my tank but I threw away the pieces that had a lot. Text for pictures. 777-0976. I'm located in Milton off Avalon.
  3. I dont have a heater. I've never had a heater in any of my tanks. Wasn't sure if I needed circulation or not but I have extra pumps so I can make that happen. Thank you!
  4. Yes the rock will be in water when transporting to my house. I dont dose anything, never have...so I dont even know what an ammonia alert badge and Prime even are. lol. People have always been amazed that my tank looks as good as it does without dosing anything. I'm saying..nothing. I own no chemicals whatsoever. lol. I am on top of my water changes..thats it (I honestly never even check my salinity). So, if a crash does happen I wouldn't even know how to fix it. I only got one picture of the tank so can't see the rock close enough to see if there are any pests. There are no fish at all though, just some corals and snails. I'll inspect everything good in the water before putting anything in my tank. You think I could switch over like one piece of rock at a time every 2 weeks or so? Maybe exchanging that way might make things less likely to cause a crash.
  5. Hey all, I've an established 14g biocube. I still have the original sand from 8 years ago when I started my tank. I have replaced the rock once about 6 years ago due to an invasive zoanthid. So, my cousin just hooked me up with a friend of hers that is getting rid of the entire contents of her tank because she doesn't have the time to dedicate to it anymore, so I am jumping on it. I have a beautiful blue mushroom that has grown everywhere in my tank. It's very invasive. It has taken out a lot of my cool corals I've had over the years. There's probably 100 of them in the tank, various sizes. Some are 3-4 inches wide. Getting rid of ALL of the rock is the only option to rid my entire tank of these f*ers. So, could I replace just about all of the rock in my tank and put the rock from her tank in without killing the current corals I have? I've got a nice set of Duncans, a favia, some blastos, and a few other small things, most of it sitting in the sand staying away from the wrath of those things. I've got a pair of clowns that are about 6. Would replacing the rock hurt my fish? I don't have an extra tank to set up to cycle or anything, so not sure how to handle this. Thanks!
  6. The bottom rocks are definitely set in there good. I'd just remove what wasn't touching the rock. Thanks!
  7. 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?
  8. 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
  10. 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
  11. 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!
  12. Help! My Tank Is Going Downhill!

    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.

  13. 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
  14. Help! My Tank Is Going Downhill!

    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
  15. Help! My Tank Is Going Downhill!

    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
