  1. This halymenia algae variation was near gone earlier in the year, now due to higher oxygen levels when I fry the stinking hair algae with peroxide and my tanks are running at 21c till September from May, its looking quite good in three spots.
  2. Sometimes I have thoughts about tanks I would like to do. Or nifty tricks that could eliminate the work. And I imagine others do to. Which means a thread like this could have some fun. So add 'em if ya got 'em. So... today right? Looking for a bit of driftwood to make a moss tree. Is not easy to find. I looked at my driftwood. All too big and clunky. And thought, I should just whittle one of them down! Why I have not thought of this before..... I do not know as I am a man who owns many mora. One nano moss tree trunk coming up. Perhaps not the best idea to start the thread with, but hopefully start it, it did.
  3. Im keen on establishing some fancy goldfish tanks (3x18x18) however my house gets fairly warm in summer with tank temps around 30 degrees on some days, but consistently at 25-28 during summer. I know high temps arent ideal for goldies and I dont want to run chillers on each tank, and Im familiar with, extra aeration, fans on the surface and frozen water bottles but I'm hoping that some folks have kept their goldies at these temps without ill effect. Currently have dwarf mbuna so water conditions arent an issue. Any advice appreciated.

  7. Hi all, I just have a question for those keeping crs CBS and the like that require cooler water. How do you keep the water cool enough in summer? I was deciding between the crs and rcs and went rcs because I was told chillers were expensive. Are chillers and air con the only way to keep a tank cool?
  8. This one is a whopper for this species, the ones I find are usually smaller and when they shed, someone eats them being so little and slow. I usually like to have at least one in one of my tanks being that they clean up and look pretty while they do it! Oswald got my last one! I got this one late last year and it lives under a large purple morph at the front so I can see it “sort of” all of the time and shows its face out feeding only when I feed the tank, which is a lot,lol. My fav cleaner shrimp, I put seven in my top tank last year and they have sorted them selves out down to 3 and that’s been the case for 6 or 7 months now and just two weeks ago one turned adult female, finaly! It took ages for my youngsters to get a dominant female up and running. In the bottom tank I put in18 the other day and the clowns killed two, including the dominant female that came with that community and I think I can see quite a few behind the rock moving about, so it should be interesting how many run that tank when they sort them selves out. Egg laden and she is a cutie!
  9. Hi everyone, I recently purchased a second-hand Boyu MH-400 46 litre reef tank which came with live rock, coral (quite poor quality from previous owners not maintaining them) and 2 brittle starfish. When bought the tank it had an algae bloom so I put in 2 types of snails to clean it up. 2 of the corals are coming back to life and all the creatures seem fine but I've noticed the water temperature getting a lot higher than it should be sitting at. Last night it went up to 30 degrees! The tank already comes with a protein skimmer, heater, carbon, sponges, return pump, and 2 t5 18w lights. The person I bought it off also put in an AquaOne wavemaker of 3500lph. Last night I left the lid off overnight and it brought the temperature down to 26-27 degrees but now I've had to put it back on and turn on the lights because of the coral. What would be the best and cheapest way to go to keep the water temperature stable? Being new to marine I bought a second-hand Hailea Chiller for $100 but didn't realise they couldn't be attached to nano tanks. I'm really not wanting to spend over $100 on another method of cooling the water. All nano chillers seem to be really expensive and I haven't found any cheap second-hand ones around. Maybe cooling fans? Also if anyone knows where to get the fans/chiller cheap for this particular type of nano tank that would be great Sorry for the lengthy message.
