  1. Sweet tank! I have been thinking of getting a red sea reefer for awhile now. You have any thoughts on the res sea route vs a traditional DIY? 

    Personally iv learned im not as a handy is I’d like to think I am as my current tank looks like a science experiment in our living room and my wife is reaching a breaking point with it. 


  2. Id honestly get rid damsel before adding anything new. Im assuming the damsel is a juvi right now but once he matures he could really create some havoc. 

    Also i would  not recomoned adding a yellow tang an algea grazer with a lawnmower blenny also an algea grazer in a small tank.  The tang would stess over the feeing competition and it would not end well.

    Id add a midas blenny to get some activity towards the middle and top of the tank. They are beautiful swimmers. 

    Alot of the fish being discussed here are jumpers and the biocubs dont come with lids 


  3. Recently went through this with an juvi emperor angelfish. 

    Unfortunately I lost him and think is was mainly because I kept trying different treatments and finally found one that killed him. 

    Based on the pics I agree is looks like lymphocytes. In which case you just want to make sure the fish is not stressed. A slightly larger quarantine with some rock to feel secure and lowering the salinity could do wonders. 

    I would not panic unless the fishes appetite is decreasing

  4. ​ I was running leds and switched to a 6 bulb ati with the exact bulb combo your thinking. Overall iv been happy with the switch. Creates a nice ice blue look. Way better growth than I ever got with the leds. However, as some who enjoys my tanks on the bluer side, the beauty of the led blue with the shimmer can't be replicated with T5s. I missed it so much I now run blue leds with my T5s. Also, helps with dawn/dusk.


    One thing I did not consider before I made the switch is that T5s give out way more heat than the LEDs. Way less than MH but significantly more than LEDs. Their heat has created some issues I never dealt with the LEDs.
