    See Success at Every Level with Dr. Tim's

    Thanks for the video. We did get an emerald crab this weekend and it took to it immediately but I’m always leery of them because I have had a few start eating corals. I had heard in. Richard Ross talk a few years ago that there’s no proof that busting bubble algae actually worsens the spread. I still try not to break them in the tank just to be on the safe side and it’s certainly easier to remove intact if you can.

    I think as more people are seeing the results and better safety profile of other methods it’s really taking off. I have heard really good things about Vibrant as was going to try it on my stepdaughter’s Nuvo 25 that is overrun with bubble algae. She’s feeding lightly. Using chemipure and doing every other week water changes and still can’t get on top of it.

    I agree Brightwell makes good quality products. I have used their calcium , alk and mg. To be honesr I haven’t tried Prodibio but will certainly look into them. Thanks for the link. I will definitely try to check it out. I’m not as familiar with his other products but remember how skeptical people were about his denitrifying bacteria when it first came out on the market.

    I have had great success with the nitrifying bacteria. There are other brands out there that I have tried but this one has worked the best for me.

    $10 Early Bird tickets for Frag Fest!

    Not me ! I can scoop up all the gems in that time. It would be like Supermarket sweepstakes coral style !! https://goo.gl/images/pQ4pnm
  7. A lit bit of denial goes a long way in having a great tank and besides it’s cheaper , legal, and healthier than some other addictions!😀 Hmmmm is there such thing as a “healthy addiction “ 🤔 or is that like saying “jumbo shrimp”

    $10 Early Bird tickets for Frag Fest!

    Five extra dollars to be the first in the show to beat the crowds and get first crack to cherry pick ! I would be all over this if I actually had a tank up!Seems like a no brainer to me!😀
  9. So true ! I think many of us try to fool ourselves on the cost .
  10. @Gumby @Flashy Fins I sent an email to Rod’s food updating him on the tank and this was his response back. Let me know when the tank is cycled and up and running and he will he happy to provide the food. What a truly generous guy!

    Barrier reef has a great group of people and it’s a fun road trip. It’s in Renton so you fortunately don’t hit the major traffic spots in Seattle. Check them out at the frag show this Saturday!

    Grafted Monti Caps

    My experience with grafted pieces (which admittedly is minimal-2) was that one species would take over. It’s kind of like those evil twin movies ...

    Please vote! Mr. Saltwater Tank to speak about...

    I don’t think that will take an hour to talk about. I’m assuming either his dad’s last name was Saltwater so he was forever committed to being in the hobby or perhaps his Mom was Ms Salt and dad was Mr, Water and it’s really a hyphenated name. Mr. Salt-Water.🤔

    Great day at the coast

    October is one of my favorite times on the coast. It’s usually less crowded and there tends to be a lot of sun and less rain. Great shots and cute dog!

    Cyano? Dinos? Or something else?

    Dinos is a possibility particularly as chemiclean did not work. I had something i a 10g Nuvo that looked just like that and I thought it was cyano but didn’t respond to typical treatments for cyano so I suspected Dinos. I successfully treated with no harm to the corals with 1ml per gallon of water of hydrogen peroxide.

    Getting back into the Hobby

    Welcome back to the hobby! Nice little cube!
  24. @BabelFish per classified rules you need to post a price or your post will be removed. It sounds like a nice tank by the way. I love Oceanic starfires. 😀 Pictures are also very helpful.
