    White LEDs

    There is a very long thread about white LEDs being harmful/not needed for reef tanks somewhere in this section. I simply can't find it. If you saved its link, would you mind sharing it please? Thanks

    Water flow rate for different jumpers

    Hello, I use several Tunze 6055 pumps in my reef tank. I would like to know how much water flow the following jumpers provide if at all possible please. Looking at the manual, 24V must provide 5500 lph and 12V must provide 1000 lph. I do not think there is a linear relationship between voltage...

    My 65G Shallow Reef Tank

    Thank you Mark. It is nice to hear from my RC friends once again. I hope you are well and your tank is going strong. I have put the fish disaster behind me but sadly this has left a scar. That said, I am now really happy with my current fish stock, which are all healthy. Hopefully, they should...

    My 65G Shallow Reef Tank

    Thank you Ed. I had no idea you followed my tank thread on UR. Thanks. My tank went sideways but bounced back eventually. Once you have experience like that you do not want to add anything to tank. Even a snail, crab or even a shrimp has to be quarantined first before adding to the tank.

    Lyretail anthias male purchased looks like popeye

    It is likely that your fish is suffering from bacterial infection. You need to treat it with appeopriate medication, such as Seachem KanaPlex or Waterlife Myxazin.

    Tropic Marin Pro-Reef Salt and PO4

    Dear all, Quite a lot of us in the UK have recently discovered that TM Pro-reef salt contains phosphates that cannot be ignored. I opened a brand new tub a few days ago and tested PO4 using Elos high resolution test kit and it was between 0.046 and 0.092 mg/L. A friend of mine measured 21 ppb...
