    Banggai Pregnant?

    The Banggai that I've always assumed was female (the one getting it's butt sniffed by the other) is looking a bit rotund today. Full belly or pregnant?

    Reef Demon

    Have you looked at Roberto's awesome Reef Angel controller and thought "Man that's just not complicated enough" or "Gee I wish the firmware were written in C instead of arduino sketches?" You have? Really? I thought I was the only one crazy like that. Roberto was kind enough to provide me...

    Filter for a Quarantine Tank

    I woke up this morning to some dead corals in my QT and elevated Ammonia levels. It looks like the bubble filter I had in there (seeded from my DT) is not keeping up. What do people use a effective filters for quarantine tanks? How do you seed them? Thanks, Erik

    Mounting this Monti

    I'm looking for some advice on how to mount this monti I got from the swap. It was described on the label as plating/scrolling. Which part should I attach? Looking at it there is no obvious "base" which to attach it to the rock. Should I tilt it or leave it flat? Should I mount...

    Vortech MP10 == Holy Crap!

    In preparation for putting the acros I got from the swap into my tank, I picked up a Vortech MP10 today to give me some variable flow. My thought was to replace one of my two Koralia 2s in my stretch hex 40g with it. I mounted it and turned it up to max to adjust for vibration and was...

    Konkers' 40 gal stretch hex

    Last December my neglected 14 gal BioCube developed a small leak. It had never really done well and it's sole surviving inhabitants were a clownfish, a hermit crab, and a handful of snails. I used this as an excuse to upgrade the tank and learn more about proper care. I went with an...
