Formalin Dip as part of quarantine

It is done easily:

1. take the fish out of the bag and place them into a container. Take just as much water from the bag as is needed for the fish to swim. in the container. Ideally you use a graduated container or one you have metered out and marked yourself so you know which volume you have at a certain fill level.

Opinions on Aqua Craft salt mixes ??

Posted 01/12/2016 at 04:37 PM by LVMAS

[QUOTE=LVMAS;24248276]I know this is an old thread but I have been using Marine Environment Salts (Aqua Craft) for about 20 years. Its worth the extra money to me. I have tried other salts. I always go back to Marine Environment. You must to give it 24 hours to dissolve before using it. That's the closest thing to a negative comment I have for the Salt. I have not used the other Aqua Craft salt mixes.

I have no opinion of the "S-15 Report". It was not a consideration....

Mikes progression through the reefing world

Posted 12/12/2015 at 10:13 PM by mcozad829

I have decided to start posting into my blog to document my experiences in reef keeping and how my knowledge and methods have changed over the years.

I started with a 46 gallon bowfront (2010) with a HOB filter, heater, and t-8 light fixture... everything kept dying and I couldn't figure out why. I started reading and started becoming aware of my issues.
After a few months I was given a reef ready 82 gallon bowfront tank with wet dry filter. The 46 was shut down and sold....
