Good luck everyone.  I wish I could have joined, because my tank looks amazing at the moment, but I have a charity event I'm attending Saturday.

I'll donate some SPS frags if you want.  
This reminds of my daughters science project she did on water parameters a couple years ago.  I was surprised at how many kids were so interested in my daughters project. You can text me 810-510-NINE1FOUR6

General Help : Science Fair

Hey guys

I need some help with my boys science experiment.

We are going to test at what temperature does coral start to bleach.   What I’m looking for is for a couple 5 gallon tanks. A couple cheap heaters and a couple small power heads. I have the light.   Also a couple cheap frags. We are wanting to use a softie, lps and sps. Ideally these would be identical pieces and can be very small frags.

Also 10 gallons of water from a well established tank. I have containers to transport.

If someone has anything they would be willing to let us borrow or purchase for cheap that would be great.

Please let me know ASAP he has to have this done by the end of December.

Thanks in advance.

We bought this for a build and then bought an existing tank with live rock.  These have been dry for a long time! They would make some great base rock.

General Discussion : Live phyto question

Subject: Live phyto question
Posted: November 02 2017 at 12:28pm

A couple weeks ago, I ordered some live phyto and copepods from algaebarn. They were having a BOGO sale, and I decided to give it a go. Over the last two weeks I gradually increased the dosage of the phyto, and I'm now adding double the recommended dose. 
I've noticed a significant decrease in the amount of algae on my glass. I was having to scrape every day or I would have a noticeable green film. Now, I can go a couple days before I see anything on the glass, and I'm getting more of a white film rather than green algae. Is this due to the phyto using nutrients before other algae can? I'm wondering if others have any similar experiences using live phyto.

Thank you all for your input and suggestions I love hearing other's experiences. I think I'm going to give it some more time and just keep an eye on the fish. So far it seems to only be affecting the blue tang though the foxface does appear to have a few spots unless im imaginging it. All seem happy and healthy enough and i do keep up on my husbandry so hopefully this will be enough. I have also been feeding frozen food with mysis and have added garlic to this with each feeding. Sounds like I'm doing what's needed and I'll just have to play it by ear. Is there anything I should keep an eye on with the blue tang as far as signs that things are getting worse? Im not sure how long it would be until i should expect to see a reduction in visible ich on her? Worst case scenario would it be valuable to remove and treat only that fish?

Hey everyone sorry for no update , I’ve gotten way lazy to update my thread, but the tank is up and running and it’s turned out great I love it , I’ve had some trouble here and there with a Dino out break,, anything and everything will always be Quarantined and dipped. PERIOD , and now ive has this weird thing where my salt has been precipitating while it’s mixing and I don’t no why I’ve even switched salts for the third time, so I don’t know what I’m missing , anyways I find it to be such a PITA to upload all my pics to photobucket and then to here ,, I vote that WMAS join Tapatalk !! So much easier !! And if it costs money I think we have a big enough community that everyone would be willing to pitch in to modernize !

I second MadReefer's experience. The only time ich has been out of control in my system is due to poor husbandry on my part. My current tank had the exact same story as Mad. I had a new yellow tang that got ich due to damage/stress from coming to my tank, and other fish were obviously itchy over the next few weeks. Tons of nori and intense observation to my tank's health, and everyone is great now.

My latest tank has been running for just over a year. It is my only tank now, but I've done 6 or 7 over many years. I tried to buy all my fish from my favorite fish store near the same time. Get them in quick and hope for the best. Everything looked healthy and then my favorite fish jumped out even with a covered tank. I kind of wanted another fish but I hate taking the risk after everything is settled. I had some algae growing and decided to buy a yellow tang a few months back. It showed ich within a few days and other fish started scratching. The only thing I did was increased feeding, especially nori. The ich went away after a couple weeks and I haven't seen it again. This is just my experience. No garlic or other treatments. Just a lot of food to help it settle in. Every situation is different. I've had mostly bad luck trying to setup hospital tanks, although not always failing. I've had more luck putting fish into a healthy and diverse environment where they were able to find a place to hide.
