    Aiptasia wanted - will trade with better rock, etc

    Cheers, Misled. Thank you for the offer. I will always need more Aiptasia, my friend. The culture of Berghia is rate limited by the amount of Aiptasia one has. Would you PM me when you have the time and let me know were you are at? Kindly, Anth-

    A second skimmer is almost always a very good idea. Regardless, you shouuld be pulling a full cup of skimmate out of your tank every day. If not, clean and tune that skimmer(s) better. And don't believe your tank does not have enough organics for it. I didn't believe it either until German...

    SMC... thanks for the kind words. regarding your UV, I don't see it being very useful in a display with substrate, and certainly not to control benthic algae forms. You are better off with ozone to boost redox and moreso to focus on better nutrient control. Tune that skimmer, add a skimmer, get...

    Aiptasia wanted - will trade with better rock, etc

    I'm in Pittsburgh, my friend. I have a lot of live rock presently to trade with too. Some unique and good shapes, but not much strong coralline presently. It will be 2-4 months before I spur the corallines significantly again. I also have some XL show pieces of dry rock, FWIW. I'm not looking...

    Cheers, Paul. Thank you for your kind words, my friend. No worries truly. It happens sometimes. Usually it's a person having a bad day and venting, or the negative-Nancy type. In this case it was actually a very nice guy with an agenda; he had always been very kind to me in the past, but decided...

    cheers, Joe I'm not sure what I can say to help you here my friend. The method is very straight forward. The folks that are faithful about maintaining a steady and strong pH (8.6) for several weeks have success (corals flourishing and algae abating). The folks that don't have success most...

    Wish List for LIRA Meeting Speakers

    James... I apologize if that came off as harsh or critical. It was not my intent at all and I thought the language conveyed it. I really did take your questions at the lecture as being quite sincere and not by any means as trying to give me a hard time. I posted here because your thread...
