  1. My first Saltwater Reef Aquarium.

    Hi all I am doing research for my first saltwater reef aquarium. I have had fresh water aquariums in the past. 1 community tank (55 gal.). One African Cichlid tank (29 gal (? we bought it used)).

It certainly smells different from any other salt I have ever used. It mixed up great, good reef levels across the board. I did a 15g water change and within 2-3 days my tang died, and two of my large montipora/chalice corals have RTN taking most of the colonies. ...
  4. Pics of Hand Leather Frag

    Just trying to get pics up now. It's looking good in my opinion. Aha. The first picture, I accidently had the flash on. And the second is a little blurry, because it's not the greatest camera... And my clowns were getting in the way sometimes... Aha. Too cute!
