Hello, I've been YouTubing since my daughter and son-in-law gave me their old 135 gallon tank, stand, rocks, sand, sump... They have upgraded. Just needing return pump, lights and of course water and livestock. I'm wanting to try my green thumb at growing Coral. I'll probably do a ton of reading before I even attempt any real "gardening" It was suggested that I come here because of the knowledge that has been accumulated over the years. I'm noticing that T5 lights seem to be the direction I'll go, through my extremely limited research, I'm understanding that these particular lights are the spectrum that corals appear to like. Anyway, thanks for having me. PS, This little, not so little, Bristle Worm was in the sand... It's about 8" long...
Hi there - I've been into the FW hobby for a while now and have recently delved into SW. I'm new to reefing and decided to convert my old Fluval Spec 3 into a pico coral-only tank with live rock and live sand. I have an ATO, a custom media rack with filter floss, live rock rubble, purigen, and ceramic pellets. I'm running a small white and blue finnex LED. As far as stocking is concerned I'm sticking to softies. I currently have frags of zoas, a hairy mushroom, a florida ricordea, and a kenya tree coral. In addition to my small clean up crew, I might get a Yasha or Watchman Goby and a Pistol Shrimp a few months from now once my tank has matured a bit and I get the hang of keeping my water quality stable. Looking forward to learning more about the hobby though this forum! Please let me know if you have any advice for a newbie! Question: How do I reply to the "Want to Sell or Trade" forum? I assumed a Basic Membership allows me to reply and purchase, but not to post new sales of my own. Any one able to help troubleshoot? Thanks!
I filled my tank 3 weeks ago. Added 90 lbs of live sand and 125 lbs of cured live rock. My p.h is 8.0 Ammonia .25 maybe a little less Nitrate 0 Nitrite 0. Not sure why its not doing anything. I added 2 yellow tailed damsels last week and everything just stays the same. Any suggestions would be great.
