    Can I save this DYING NANO?

    oh and let me clarify the sandbed vacuum. Don't throw over the bed entirely, the top part of the sandbed should be vacuumed. So the lighter part of the sand. Don't disrupt the bottom part as that will be where the anaerobic bacteria culture lives.

    Can I save this DYING NANO?

    Yes, give it a good vacuum, that bed looks like there is a lot of decay in it. as long as you vacuum out the bad stuff into a bucket and dump it and not recycle it into the tank. for now I would keep checking for ammonia before adding COC. If there are no traces of ammonia and nitrites then I...

    Can I save this DYING NANO?

    1.026 is fine. What is not fine is what ever the salinity was in the tank. If the salinity was say 1.024 and you raise it quickly to 1.026 it can adversely affect the fish.. anyway, not saying that is the problem. Keep in mind some corals dying in a tank releases toxins which kills fish and...

    Clownfish "fighting" questions

    Do not try and force them, it can take a few days to even a year for them to actually move to the anemone. Sometimes they do not care at all. I bought Heteractis magnifica for my yellow stripe maroon clown because he kept wiggling sand. I put it in close to his territory, but he never bothered...

    Need some identification

    Hi. It is not flatworm for sure. I have had flatworms and these look like anemone but are hard. It has a little white spot ontop of the stem. It does not seem like citon either as they are not hard.

    Need some identification

    Thanks for the response. It is hard. I stuck my hand and it is like a solid tiny stick. There is about 8 of them on the 5 rocks. And they really grew quickly. Sorry the pics are not the best but i have a crappy camera on the phone.

    Need some identification

    Hi All, I am new to the forum, but not new to reef tanks. I have setup a new tank about 3 weeks ago currently going through its cycle. I am using majority base rock which I have made myself but added some small live rock pieces that came from an old coral frag tank. I am adding Fusion 1 and 2 as...
