    Coral issues, browning, stning, etc.

    So I've had a frag tank setup (40B) after I shut down my tank, and had a few corals go wonky, but now I'm seeing a big wonk happening and have no idea what's going on. So a some acros are STNing, it's not fast but over a period of a few days poof all white. Now one of my larger colories a...

    Get ready for environmental increase to your electric bill!

    Well seems they're FINALLY going to start transitioning customers to a Time of Use schedule for their electricity, and all under the guise of "helping the environment" which in itself is another argument to enact this system with private investor owned utility service and do so with a punishment...

    Another barcode question

    Maybe should get one big question topic so this doesn't flood over? Either way, what triggers reminder posts on various corals? Is it just randomized? Am I literally the only person who hasn't posted a picture of their coral in the DBTCs I'm still part of? Or is it trigger by some...

    Is there an outdoor usage for old dirty sand?

    Don't want to make it something my kid can play in because it's quite honestly gross, but is this something you can mix in with soil and well do anything useful as a result of mixing it? This isn't silica base sand it's aragonite, and I wouldn't wish it on anyone as it had tons of aiptasia...

    Review: Modular Black Egg Crate

    So I started up a frag tank to put my corals to try and get ahead of any aiptasia damage, and well long story short I only had one partial piece of egg crate (white) available and it just wasn't enough though. So curious struck me and I wondered how much black stuff was, now I know it'd be a...

    Coralvue Hydros being blackballed?

    Not sure I'm using that term correctly here but... https://reefbuilders.com/2020/10/30/threatened-controller-manufacturer-attempting-to-shut-out-new-lower-cost-hydros-controller/ Gist of it is that a "bigger" controller manufacturer may be using it's muscle to keep the Hydros Control out of...

    Who's cleaning their solar panels?

    After seeing my wife's car last week before she washed it figured I'd check what my solar panels looked like and... well see the picture. Now I'm not sure how much is actually being blocked here, but I figure this was a good enough time to clean them off. Now I don't have a fancy internet...

    Anyone ever deal with underground yellow jacket removal?

    Just noticed a nest in the backyard, hole actually. It all came because last night was smoke free and cool so windows were open and of course I smelled a skunk, so went out to shoe him away... or attempt to... he just looked at me for a second then went about continuing to dig holes...

    Maxspect "Jump" line of equipment

    I feel like Kaiser-Permanente ripped off my pops.

    So I brought dad to Kaiser for an eye exam, he needs help due to mental problems, unfortunately after the exam they only allowed one person to sit with the eye glass technician or whatever they're called (not sure if they're actual optometrist or if they're ex-car salespersons), and after a...

    Upset with Red Sea's nitrate test kit.

    So tested phosphate 0.1ppm range, ok fine... tested nitrate... and the water does not change color. 3 separate times I did the test, the last one with the refill kit I just got, and still no color change at all. And I have a really hard time believing my nitrate is 0 considering I don't...

    Frozen food, where? how much?

    Ok so I'm kind of running low on frozen food, and as much as I'd love to support LFSs... there really aren't any that are *L* to me. It's hard enough to drive an hour (one way) to get to one of the "preferred" stores of the area, I really feel bad doing it when "essential only" type...

    Making Lemonade - Mike's Lagoon

    So my 200 gallon tank leaked from a bottom seam, I'm not even going to attempt to repair it either just not worth my time to attempt to do so, just hoping Spectrum will through a few c-notes my way as compensation for it, but the reality is that's not even what really upset me, if I just tossed...

    ID?

    So in thinking of breaking down my softy tank and just moving everything over, and seeing some aiptasia and bubble algae.. now second guessing and needing to be WAY more careful. I noticed what at first I thought was just some large cyano patch growing, but after taking a picture and zoom in...

    How long does it take for your glass/acrylic to "dirty" up.

    And in the poll I put "should" because I know where people actually do it, and when they should do it may differ by a considerably amount of time :) Basically I'm wondering how long is it when you THINK you should clean your glass, whether or not you actually do it :) I'm just curious...
