    ??? Eric Borneman Arrested ????

    Not everyone heard at the time apparently (me for one). Why does TruTV run "caught on tape" or "Dumbest Criminals" over and over? Cause it is FUNNY. Hey here is my thought - if ya play hard and do dumb things, then you have to be willing to deal with the consequences.

    PH help

    Consistency is the most important consideration regarding pH. The pH of our reef tank is typically handcuffed to the CO2 levels in our homes. You will notice that your pH often drops on days when the outside temp is mild, especially in the spring/fall, as your HVAC does not run as much and CO2...

    Pectinia coral

    Can you specify which one you have specifically? Some are intermediate in care level but others are very difficult. A pic would be good as well, since misidentification is also common in the hobby.

    Why cant I keep candy canes alive?

    Quite possibly your other corals are toxic to the candy cane or some water parameter is skewed. What is you tank stocked with? How heavily is it stocked? Can you describe your water parameters and set up?

    Goo on my Zoo??

    This is a condition sometimes nicknamed "cheesing out". Essentially, it is a fungus resulting from rapid die off within this coral colony. It is likely that the lack of light or another irritant stressed out your coral. While I would definitely have recommended the iodine dip, don't do any more...

    Stubborn algae may be green cyano? any advice would be appreciated

    When discussing Cyanobacteria, organic matter is largely to blame in the case of Cyano. I have run GFO/Purigen/media until my SPS corals turned white and Softies started to die from lack of N & P.....yet Cyano remained. I firmly believe that excess organic matter, like common detritus, is one of...

    Old School vs New School: Flow or Not to Flow

    What kind of algae is this??

    Yep, it is green cyano (BGA). This particular strain is a bit tougher to manually remove than the reddish strains. I recommend manually removing with a toothbrush and using a turkey baster to blast organics off your rocks.
