Thoughts Posted By: ryan1986
So I was looking at my tank today and I noticed on the hammer I picked up 10days ago there is some growth at the back. Want peoples thoughts on what it could be.

If you had happened upon my previous journal entries you would know that a few weeks ago my clumsiness resulted in my LED light taking a short swim in my tank. Skip down the bottom if you just want to see what I got. :) The previous Maxspect was a good light for me for quite a while. I could of done with a second light to better, or more evenly, light my cube tank, but overall with a few minor...

At home with gastro today, so between trips to the loo, figured I'd play with my GoPro and camera slider. Here is the result:

New Addition Posted By: daveH
I’ve been wanting to add another fish and have been tossing up between a few. Finally decided on a great looking Gold Rim Tang. He has settled in surprisingly well, eating everything and swimming happily around his new home.

So after my Jaebo dosing pump was failing and nearly killed all my SPS, all but one have made a comeback An issue i was having was it would never dose the correct ammount no matter how much calibraiton i did, i had an old bubble magus laying around with a faulty MB, swapped the motors on the Jaebo with the BM pumps and now its amazing. Supper accurate dosing every-time, it was so easy to do as...

So after a bit of a head scratch and much encouragement from @daveH, I decided to get a Powder Blue tang. Introduced him in the dead of night with all lights off. He's going fantastic and already eats with the others with no fighting at all. I'm so stocked!!

As always, am going to fall back to my fellow crew here in Reefuge as I trust you the most; definitely more than FB. I am going to give Peppermint Shrimps a chance here but if that doesn't work, should I lemon or Aiptasia X? What's the safest option? Don't want to spoil the water params as much if I can and don't mind doing it gradually as long as it is the safest option. Let me know your...

Led Question Posted By: ryan1986
Ok so in my redsea max 250 I have 6x39w t5 globes that need replacing. I found a 2ft 90w led light with sunrise timer for $60 Not full spectrum just blue and white. Just wondering if people think it would be worth removing say 4-5 t5 globes and fitting this in the hood and leaving 1 or 2 globes which i could run more an arctic or blue plus globe to give extra spectrum. Or would it be a total...

Ok so i have noticed the front part of my sand is getting moved away from the wavemaker and I'm not keen on how its looking with the glass on bottom. Any tip or tricks on wavemaker placement to give coral flow but not blow sand around.
