    Tiny brown flatworms

    Does anyone have experience dealing with? They appeared seemingly overnight on the glass. I'm going to pick up a couple wrasses tomorrow. I've read they won't affect corals but they can overpopulate and kill from toxicity after dying.

    HELP!!! Aquarium heater...

    I was buying new heaters of different brands often as well until I got an aqueon 150w for the same gallons as you have. It is shaped like a test tube so I keep it mounted as shown at minimum water level to prevent any seal leaks. They say it's shatter proof and it has lifetime warrant but I dont know about that. Heaters shouldn't be in low flow areas to prevent high internal temperatures and be kept clean for the same reason. I always use an external controller. Lacrosse mobile alerts for 99cents/mo gives me advanced warning on high or low temps. I keep my downstairs living area 77 so I dont need my heater during warm months. I have a new heater in box on standby. I was going to add another heater and temp controller staged down a degree or two so it wouldn't be used until the primary fails but I havent yet. I also have a wifi power strip that shows current draw so if I get a temp alert, I can login and shut it off remotely if it fails on, or see that it is not on. I've read that heater failure is one of the most common trouble spots so I feel confident in my setup. All of this is will set you back probably $150.00

    By the airport, Aquarium Designs has a lot of stuff. Elegant Reef is down the street, they have a lot of stuff but anything good is $$$.

    Don't forget your insulated transport device and cash so vendors don't have to pay credit card transaction fees. I will be loading up.

    The Maroon Lagoon V2.0

    Yeah, it's like propane or refrigerant. Once all of the liquid has boiled off, it will start dropping pressure. You could weigh it and subtract the tare weight and regulator weight to see how much is left in the bottle.
