    MP40WQD cage falling off

    Thanks for reading and replying. Yes, both are falling off, randomly it appears. I have checked and the oring is still in place. I am also sure to twist them all the way on

    MP40WQD cage falling off

    I have a set of the new QD, and the cages (nozzle as the manual calls out) keep falling off randomly while they are running. It seems there should be a notch that keeps it from spinning, but I have 2 and the both have the sme problem. any tips on how to keep them from spinning off?

    ID please on this sps

    Anyone give me a hint on this one. I got this one several years ago, and it just sat that for the longest time, then it finally started taking off about a year ago.

    vendors making up coral names

    for some time now, I have been watching these "vendors" on various social websites, and I just scratch my head at the names of corals I am seeing. While I have always had a disdain for coral naming, it appears to me that we have now reached a point where anybody can decide they are a vendor...

    AEFW: In-Tank Whoopin

    my order of fish came in yesterday. the spotted mandarin has been sitting in an infested milli colony for the better part of yesterday and today picking AEFW. that is very encouraging. The 10 tiny blue saphire damsels aint doing anything yet. they are quick to pick them from the water...

    AEFW: In-Tank Whoopin

    I am pretty sure I had it right. I mixed 4g of prohibit into 500mL of water. then i dosed 1.5ML of that solution per gallon. 220gx1.5 was 330mL of the solution. It completely paralized all my bristleworms and brittle stars. the stars layed in the bottom of the sump for days.

    AEFW: In-Tank Whoopin

    So, I think I am giving up on prohibit - levamisole while I am still ahead. 2 doses, and no measurable damage to the FW population. Going to continue to use Flat Worm Stop, and up my natural defenses. So I just ordered 10 Starphire Blue damsels 1 synchiropus picturatus 1 Halichoeres...

    AEFW: In-Tank Whoopin

    scrapz, google does it better than I can, just type in aefw and saphire damsels. tons of stuff comes up. also something to note. I put some flatworms, large and small, in a small container of water, maybe 300mL of water. Then I took a small syringe and blew approximately .1 ML, basically a...

    thanks for the experience and information montireef, very informative, and probably going to go into my arsenal against the AEFW.

    AEFW: In-Tank Whoopin

    yeah, I just found a couple threads on them. seems odd, I have been researching for weeks, and never came across it. but now, i see several stories. unfortunately, my preferred fish vendor, Live aquaria is out of stock

    thanks for sharing your experience. I do have a mandarin, although it is a Synchiropus splendidus. and He does not appear intersted in them at all. Are you sure they picked Acro eating flat worms, and not just red planeria flat worms.

    intersting, thanks for the feedback. I have also been dosing the Zeovit Flatworm stop, actually doubled the dosage for the first week also. I have been dosing it almost a month, unfotunately, I am not seeing much improvement. I just took a turkey baster to the corals, and still found a bunch...

    AEFW: In-Tank Whoopin

    unfortunately, I there is no way I can remove the acro's from my tank. I have well over 100 colonies fully encrusted on the rocks, no way to remove them without tearing down the whole tank. And If I did get the colonies out, there is no way to re attach them and then take them back out a week...
