    Growing out in under-sized tanks

    IMO, once it stops growing. You tend to see a lot of tangs and other "œlarger" fish max out around 4-5" in 4' tanks when they should blow right past that size and keep on growing within 2-3 years. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Alkalinity issues

    Turn up the output of the reactor (increase flow or lower pH depending on how you control your reactor). Ca is used much slower so it's likely dropping as well, you just don't see it in the short term as much as alk. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    That fish looks terrible. I wouldn't want it for free. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Quarantine water change

    If this is going to happen, I'd rather it happen in QT where I can deal with it, than after introducing the fish to the DT (which is still going to be a stressful transition, even after QT). So, I use DT water for QT water changes. That's the water they're going to be in soon anyway, might as...

    Leopard Wrasse Primer

    Leopard wrasse experts... is a two spot candy hogfish likely to give one or more leopard wrasses trouble in a 180? I have one established leopard (meleagris) in the tank, looking to add 2-3 more. Picked up a bipartitus, but also picked up a small candy hog at the same time. So far the candy hog...

    Pink Pocilloporo help, please

    Pink Pocilloporo help, please I would say lack of flow and/or light reaching the underside. Your alkalinity is also too high for nutrient levels that low IMO. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Carbon to remove smell?

    Check and see if you accidentally left a cup of thawed mysis shrimp somewhere... did that one time and blamed the cat for 2 weeks before I found it on top of the canopy. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    SPS breather days

    Back when I was running halides, I programmed in pseudo-random cloudy days that occurred about once a week (variable - sometimes two in a row, sometimes none for 2 weeks, and anything in between), where just the supplemental lights came on and the halides stayed off. Can't say if it helped...

    Flavoguttatus Anthias

    Just checking in to see if anyone is having long term success with these. Thinking about picking up a trio from DD but not sure if these fall into the impossible or possible Anthias category. I am experienced keeping lyretails, squarespot, bimacs, and sunburst. Just not looking for something...

    Porites dying

    Do you have any potential coral nippers? I have a few angelfish and although I have a tank full of acropora and montipora with no issues, porites will be eaten. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Nitrates from Hell

    I have seen multiple reports over the years of people having ammonia/nitrate issues mixing water near litter boxes. It stands to reason that if you can smell the ammonia in the air, it can contaminate the water... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Fish swimming against front glass, unaware of surroundings

    The whole story is below but the short version is I have a CBB in QT who is just swimming against the glass, not eating, not paying attention to surroundings, not acting right. Looking for specific experience and feedback regarding QT of CBB, or experience snapping a fish out of a trance...
