    MSX 200 Not making foam

    I just noticed that my protein skimmer stopped making foam for the past few days. It's bubbling but the bubbles are not producing any foam. It's been working great until now. I've taken out the pump and cleaned it and make sure the impeller was intact. My skimmer sits on 8-9" water. Any...

    Which Refractometer Is Wrong??

    I had my aquarium evaluated and the guy used his refractometer and found that my SG was 1.030! Then we used my refractometer and got 1.025. Today, I borrowed my friends' and got 1.018! All refractometers were calibrated with ro/di water, at 1.000. I don't have a needle pin tester. How do I know...

    Powder blue with white spots

    Did the white spots look like this? I'm trying to figure out why my tang has white spots. A picture would be helpful. I just posted a thread to get some help with my hippo.

    What's going on with my hippo?

    For the past month my hippo has been looking terrible but acting fine. I'm not sure if this is HLLE as the white spots are practically everywhere and I'm doubtful that its ich. There were only a few white spots and now there are too many to count. Its eating fine and seems happy otherwise. I'm...

    Adding another return?

    I have a 90gal tank with a single overflow. Is it possible to install another return? Is there a way to connect my return pump to a single pipe that divides into two? I think I need more flow in my tank and I'd hate to add more powerheads! Please show pics. Thanks!

    algae growth after removing filter media

    A friend of mine who has been reefing for years did it for me while I was at work. I bet it was tap water. Salt water made out of tap was cycling for about 3 months before my 30 gallon was transfered. What do you think about me getting a new skimmer? I currently have a EuroReef RS80, which is...

    algae growth after removing filter media

    I heard that keeping them in all the time will take out all the good nutrients as well. Is that true? The LFS said that I should take it out after 1 week becuase the poor nutrients will leak out of the media. If I would like to keep it in all the time, then I would have to replace it every week...
