I used a fish trap, I borrowed from Carson tropical fish. I was able to get my yellow tail damsel out with in 5 mins. Too bad It didn't work with catching my blue tangs.... I need to move them to a bigger home.
Thanks for the great info, I am almost ready to start setting up my tank and cycling it... just making sure im doing everything right and according to these posts im on the right track!!
Thanks for the information, it's a great help for us new reefers
Is adding purified drinking water to the tank a good or bad thing? When my water evaporates I add water I buy to drink myself, should still treat the water with some chemical?
If it distilled with 0 TDS it's perfectly fine. I would test it for TDS at your local LFS. Or buy a small meter. I have one if you're in my area I can test it for you.
If you don't want to second guess make your own RODI or buy from a reputable sponsor. If you do buy, test it every time anyway. I've heard many horror stories lately and in the past. I tested some "Rodi" water from a place we all go to "non sponsor" and the water had Eighty something TDS.
If it's got the Teeth it aint for the Reef ..... Write that down !!! lol
"If its got the Teeth its not for the Reef"
As the late great Colonel Sanders once said, "I'm too drunk to taste this chicken."
Don't clean your sump without turning the return pump off.
Don't go off of the assumption that your PH in the calcium reactor is stable, means everything is perfectly balanced. Alk spike FTL, I kiweed a very nice piece, fuuuuuuuuu!
I agree about going on vacation! Next time I leave for more than just a few days, I think I'll get a service to babysit my tank. I've had a few bad exeriences with losses and bad water chemistry that have occured during vacations.
Funny about not feeding your aptasias!
I do mold inspections, and see lots of homes of course, some with tanks....amazing how many people have aptasia problems. Man I remember this one guy....seemed like his goal must have been to have an aptasia tank, he had hundreds of them....
Don't forget to dip your shiiiiiiiiii?! Bayer FTW
OMG there is a lot of donts vs do's do lot of resarch and dont rush its costly
