    Changing Water Changing Parameters

    It sounds like you did the best thing. I too have had this happen and just let things slowly work itself back to stabilizing. I have done two large water changes on my system (90 gallons of actual water volume) I try to measure everything on the tank as well as the new water to make sure they...

    Turbo snails

    I took the rubble rock out of my refugium looking for the fish. He is completely gone. I'm just curious if the snails will eat a dead fish? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Turbo snails

    I do have mud. There is no way he made it to my return pump. I have mesh and eggcrate so the snails don't get out Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Turbo snails

    Can large turbo snails eat a dying fish? I had a wrasse that was bullied by my other wrasse and was not doing well. I noticed last night the wrasse was in the corner of the tank and not moving much at all. I threw the wrasse in my refugium to keep him away from being bullied more. The only...

    Biopellets and skimming

    Okay, thank you for the information. Just from what I was reading a lot of people plumb it into the skimmer like I did. But if near the skimmer intake is fine then that will work for me and be easier to clean out the hose etc. Thank you both for the help! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Biopellets and skimming

    I have the reactor return line near the intake of my skimmer. The skimmer is working normal again, just curious because I see a lot of people make the intake like the one I made go right into the skimmer without issues. Once the biopellets start building up bacteria do you think I can attach the...

    Biopellets and skimming

    I just tried that and the foam head started to come back. My question is will my skimmer go back to normal with the reactor? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Biopellets and skimming

    I did a DIY reactor with the TLF 150. I started with a 1/4 of the recommended amount of biopellets so I do not go too fast. My outlet on the reactor is plumbed right into my intake of the skimmer. Ever since I started two days ago my skimmer (Reef Octopus Diablo xs160) is not producing any foam...

    Snails added to sump

    I did consider other types of inverts to add to the sump. But I did read that Mexican turbos eat that red hair algae. I am going to try this with the egg crate and large snails, however, I will do this on some days off where I can monitor things just in case. Also I will pull out as much as I...

    Snails added to sump

    I do have a ATO, I have the tunze osmolator, that is in my return section of my sump. I was thinking egg crate may keep them from getting into the return section. Also, this will be a temporary thing as once they clean up the place they can go back to the DT. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Snails added to sump

    That's what I was thinking, I have a couple big turbo snails about the size of a golf ball that I was thinking would do the trick and the egg create would keep them from going to the skimmer or return pump. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Snails added to sump

    Was curious if I can add some turbo snails to my sump refugium, without worry if they will get caught in a pump or cause issues and overflow the sump. I have a bit of cotton candy algae growing and I heard that Mexican turbos will take care of it. I was curious if I add maybe some egg create to...

    OMG!!!! P.U.!!!!!!!!!!! Tank is suddenly VERY stinky!!!

    As mentioned I would check to see if something died, also run some fresh carbon, do a large water change (good time to check for death, or algae maybe above water line). I also would check overflows too. I know sand can give off a sulphur smell if it has any decaying matter. Maybe open windows...

    Heads up on Bayer

    I emailed them as well and got the same response lol. I guess Home Depot is the only store that has them cheap right now.

    LF Black Eggcrate

    If you don't find some close by. Heads up, I saw Coral Carral had some in stock. That's the only place that I have seen it locally with the black crate. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
