Aquarists vs Marine Biologists by J R-S
According to dictionary.com, an aquarists is he who maintains an aquarium, in the other hand, a Marine Biologist is a specialist. In other words, anyone that maintains an aquarium good or bad is an aquarist. To be a Marine biologist you have to be a specialist on the field.

What's the best SALT? by Peter Pan
I've been using Instant Ocean since I set up my 75 Gal. FOWLR tank in 2002 and never had a problem. I've read that its not really a good idea to change salt, but if you were to change it, it was a very lengthy process with mixing your current salt with the new stuff until your completly...

Rose anenome splitting by TW
I purchased a rose anemone about 8 months ago. About a month ago I noticed that it was noticeably bigger. It had split in two. I was thrilled with my success. On the weekend it did it again. I now have three rose anemones in my tank. Has anyone had a similar experience? My LFS is licking it...

1 Attachment(s) alkalinity by Dinky
I'm having some difficulty wrapping my brain around alkalinity and it's relationship to PH. Can anyone explain it in "Aquaria for idiots" fashion, or point me to a place where it's explained? I'm starting to feel like I need to take a couple BioChem classes. tia billy --

Bo0ger1, show me your tank... by Pszemol
Booger, I have noticed you ignored several requests from several different people who wanted to see your tank(s) run over a year without a water change... Why don't you show people here your method works ? Is there maybe something wrong with your tank and you do not want to show it ? What are you...

Ich and tang... by Pszemol
I made a stupid mistake and I added some new live rock to an old, established tank without quarantine it first... The effect: my large hepatus tang got ich. I do not want to cure it in the reef and taking it out will be a challenge. I was thinking about getting some cleaner shrimps to eat the...

Some web- comments say there is a video that was on TV. But I haven't found anything like it on the web. Is...

Water change reuse? by Ben
G'day all, I've been offered just about everything needed to start up a marine tank. Problem is, we have severe water restrictions here, and I like to reuse the water I take from my tropical tank during weekly water changes, and put it on my lemon tree.... the tree loves it.

I have a new Coralife Deep Six hydrometer that I've been using for the past year or so. But over the weekend I sorted through my trash can full of aquarium supplies, and found my old "The Original" Seatest hydrometer that I've had for probably 20 years. The Coralife reads 1.022, and the tank has...
