    The Ultimate DIY Rocks!

    I believe it does because of the requirements for calcification. Is it a major issue? I don't remember it being one but that was 10 plus years and several diy rock projects ago. People started changing the orginial recipe and more often than not had issues.

    Removing rock from sump

    Old tank syndrome is one of those phrases that gets passed around from time to time and is used when someone has an older tank, something goes wonky, and the owner cannot find the cause. Would you go into more detail as to why you believe this could be the case here? Thanks.
