Re: Tank Calculators & Conversions

the 70% I use as a guide for FW tanks. SW is a totally different beast and needs to be measured accordingly. A perfect example would be deep sand beds vs shallow, then -30% or more for live rock. So yes the actual holding volume of water what the label states and the actual living space is reduced g...

Re: Piggy bit my fingertip off

sorry for your loss... they do make kevlar gloves though. They are used in the food industry for prep work. Might be handy to have on hand (pun intended). ;)

Re: Dwarf puffer tries to eat but can't?

+1 on the cherry shrimp. It will leave the adults alone but hunt down the fry if it make it in time for them to develop. Your pal is on a very short schedule unfortunately. This is not an uncommon problem as Dwarfs are VERY picky eaters. In the mean time, try taking one of the smaller pond snails an...

Re: are metal ties on the bottom of plants ok in shrimp tank

if you go back and think about it for a moment, where to lead ties come from? Metal... metal is mined and not refined at 100% purity. Thus you are possibly adding unwanted metals to the tank (copper). Best to leave off the ties and and anchor the plants another way. All of my past shrimp tanks had t...

Re: Hello from sunny Singapore!

Dang I miss S'pore ... Other than physical space you are in an ideal location to keep and get exotic puffers. I really do envy you. Plant upkeep is 1 topic puffer keeping is a different topic. But can and will be, big jobs. Try to keep it as simple as possible, and as easy to maintain as possible. I...

Re: Whats this on my glass? Bacteria, weird algae? Please ad

Ditto the slime mold. Mine was white and was in one of my breeder tanks. If it continues you have a most likely water quality issue. More frequent partials and a good substrate vac weekly will help keep it under control / eradicate it.

Re: Live Rock.

depends on the grain size of the sand you are using. Remember the story of the 3 bears? Same theory applies here. Too coarse and it is no good, too fine it is no good. Marco Rocks seels oolic sand which is nice or you can get "sand blasting" sand from the hardware store and that is also a ...
