    Protocol for using antibiotics to treat infected anemones ~Added to 7/30/14

    I have used erythromycin off and on over three years and have never had any issues. Usage is normally once every six months roughly. I am aware of a few high profile reefers who also use it.

    I want to add the above to my reef tank and am aware that compatibility varies with each individual specimen. Nevertheless, would like to guage your experiences with either of the two angels. Also, if they are likely to nip at corals, which are the most likely at risk?

    Korallin Nitrate Reactors

    How to increase KH

    I have a 150 gallon tank and have a problem with my kh (dKh?) which is low (6.5). I believe I can increase it using bicarnonate of soda. Any suggestions as to the dosage I should use on a daily basis and how much the dosage will increase the kh by daily.
