After he discovered his mistake he was successful. Do I look like a member who runs his mouth about BS showing thousands of post? I am not telling you to do anything with your acros (although I would like too)

I had absolutely no cyano but didn't use vibrant. It completely killed all Bryopsis and GHA in 14 days. I'm leaving it in the tank a while longer as long as coral continue to look good in case of hidden roots. Most do water change after 14-21 days.

Preventing ich and disease in new fish

Posted 02/22/2017 at 08:45 AM by Sk8r

The importance of water quality IN QT as an ich preventative.

Take that into account. Angels, tangs and rabbits are very vulnerable.

However, I am fanatic about water quality 24/7 for new fish. Keeping alk around...

About skimmers: y/n/maybe? Not your swimming pool skimmer...

About skimmers: y/n/maybe? FYI And they aren't your swimming pool skimmer...

Well, lps and soft coral will consume a bit of it. But unless you have a packed reef, their usage can't compete with a skimmer. And, catch-22,...

I've been hearing about this store since I got in the hobby, and pretty much daily for the last two years from my boss. With all the good things I've heard, threads like this have kept me from setting foot in the store. Something about a store that refuses to pick up their phone just rubs me the wrong way.
