    Vortech and water clarity question

    For those that run Vortechs or any other wave maker with a controller such as Apex, do you allow the Apex to shut off the wave makers to feed or do you use the feed mode that is built into the wave makers? I ask because I have heard that constantly having hard shut downs may pose issues. In...

    For those that dose Alk

    For those of you that dose alkalinity, which product do you use? I've been using BRS' soda ash but am a bit concerned about precipitation. Do others here use sodium bicarbonate instead?

    Has anyone fed their tangs this seaweed?

    Saw this at the grocery store when I was picking up nori. Anyone try this seaweed? It’s not flattened and thin like nori, rather it’s a large bag and the seaweed looks to be roasted but it’s clumped together.

    Reefers with tanks 120g+, any regrets?

    I currently have an 80g tank (48x24x16) and am thinking of upgrading to a 120g (48x24x24) and wanted to get people's thoughts. Right now the lack of height is a bit of a limiting factor as my sps grow, they will start getting in the path of my wave makers. So for the folks here that upgraded...
