    Dosing Question

    I dose alk daily to the tune of 45ml a day. I'm using the BRS mix for alk, mag, and calcium. Does anyone think that dumping 45ml into the 125g tank all at once could pose any problems?

    I was talking to friend and he mentioned that there are several coral color enhancing additives on the market that will really make your colors POP! I was wondering what some people think and use (if any) and what the results are before and after.

    I've been reading a lot lately on the importance of Potassium in the reef tank so I figured I'd grab a Salifert test kit (easiest to test potassium with) and a bottle of Brightwell Aquatics Potassium with my next fix of a shipment. OK shipment came today:) and here is what I've found out so...

    I have no use for this fixture and it's time to offer it up to someone who can put it to good use. The fans are whisper quiet, everything works as it should and the fixture is in great condition. Two of the bulbs are no good and will need replacing. I'm offering it to RS members for a few...

    Well the time has come to begin a new DIY project. I discussed possibly building this in a previous thread and last night I did a little brainstorming and here is what I think the layout will look like. I find it easier to draw what I'm planning before I begin the actual work because too many...

    Apex Email & Text Notification

    I finally re-set-up my Apex controller this weekend. Being that I have no internet wall socket to plug the Apex into, I purchased a Lynksys Access Point router in order to be able to connect to the Apex. The problem I'm having is I can't seem to complete the test email and text alert. I...

    Aqua Illumination SOL Blues

    I'm considering selling 2 or more of my AI SOL Blues. The only reason I'm considering the sale is because I have 2 Apollo LED fixtures and an Apex controller sitting in a box that I'm considering putting on the 125. There is nothing wrong with any of them and I'd like to get $325.00 each...

    SPS Issues

    Lately I've been having some of my SPS corals growing super fantastic only to have them begin to turn white from the base and slowly die from the bottom up. Basically I have 2 small colonies that started out as 1" frags which I popped off of the plug and glued to a rock. They encrusted...
