We recently moved and do not have anywhere to put our reef tank at the new house. It comes with all the equipment and all the livestock for free if you figure out how to move everything. We need it gone ASAP.
Background: Tank has been setup at the current address for about two years but the tank is about 7-8 years old I believe. We got it from the in-laws grandparents and was moved here by Aquatic Dreams. It has lots of fish, a few corals and several anemones. During the 2 years we've had it there has never been any outbreak of diseases or parasites. All the equipment is in perfect working order.
Equipment:- Custom built stand and canopy- 30  Gallon Acrylic Sump- AI Sol Blue Lighting (2) w/Mounting Rail- Vortech MP40w- Aquatop DDC-800 Heater/ Controller-Hydrofill TItanium ATO- Aqua UV Sterilizer- Iwaki MD-RLT Return Pump- Discontinued Protein Skimmer w/ Eheim Pump- Hagen Reef Test Kit- Brute Cans Retrofitted for water changes (2)

General Discussion : Platinum clownfish pair not fully acclimated??

Give them some time. Try to feed them close to where they stay so you dont overfeed the tank with all the feed they dont eat. Eating food is a good sign

Hello so I was just wondering about these new clownfish I just got recently if they are going to be okay or not??.. so I've been out of the saltwater hobby for years like 7 years or so. I also was a member on this site years ago as well but I guess they couldn't find my info when I tried logging in so I had to make a whole new account... But anyways I couldn't stay away from the hobby much longer I've been itching to start up a new tank for years now, and I finally got did so recently..well it's not the tank size I really wanted to do if I ever got back into it but it's better then not having one at all right?? Lol.So I started off with one of those fluval 5 gallon Evo tanks they are actually pretty cool but after running it for a like a week or so o decided to go with a little bit bigger tank and since I couldn't find the bigger Evo one which is like the 16 gal or something I think I just went with a 20 gallon high tank and so I moved everything from that 5 gal and into this new 20..

I used bio spira to start the 5 gallon and used the rest of the bottle I had remaining in my new 20 I also added some seachems stability so I was sure I had enough bacteria so I didn't have to wait months and months to start adding stuff to the tank... I also used a bag of live sand and got some live rock as well.. and before I added these Platinum clownfish I tested my water and made sure the ammonia,and nitrites we're down but I had a tiny bit of nitrates .. so I did the acclimation slowly and everything was fine but the clownfish never really explored around the tank much they just stayed in this corner behind the rocks...it also took them about 2 days to finally start eating something and the only reason why they've been eating so far is cause I've been using the garlic extreme and soaking their brine shrimp in it..
so my question is is this normal behavior or are they like still acclimating or getting themselves used to the tank still? They've just been in that same spot for more then a week now it's like they ar scared still and they wont leave that little corner they like to stay in... I was starting to think maybe what if they were like spawning or laying some eggs or something and that's the reason why they won't leave that spot? Also they will only eat the brine shrimp if it comes directly to them they wont swim out of their way to get it

Well I was back for a short time and I have decided that the tank I purchased is not the tank for me. So for sale it goes while I look for a larger tank that fits my style.

 I have a 30g tank, none drilled, with a hob filter that is doubling as the fuge. Comes with a Current USA programmable led. Also has about 40# sand and rock. I also have another bucket of some coarse sand I will just give away if asked for. The tank has a stand it come with as well. Fish are a chalk basslet and a lawnmower blenny. There are a few corals including some mary jane colonies.

Make me an offer. Text is best and I will send/post pics as well.


Thanks

Roy

Reef Chemistry : DYI live rock

Author: Adam Blundell
Subject: DYI live rock
Posted: March 18 2019 at 10:14am

That's tough.I've made a lot of aragocrete over the years.  I too suggest no oyster shell.  I'm not sold on the rock salt.  The porosity can be better, but you really risk having it become brittle, especially in thin areas.
I would highly recommend looking at available rock (marco, cerameco, etc) and epoxying them together to make your sculpture.  
Making rock is totally fun, but not nearly as practical in usage as buying those rocks to use.

The last Frag Grow Out contest we did, we had very little response.  We'd consider starting it back up if we had enough response.  Feel free to post here if you'd be interested.  If we get enough people, we can discuss at our next Presidency meeting.

Reef Chemistry : DYI live rock

Posted: March 18 2019 at 8:39am

This may not be the right category for this post, but since my question is more chemistry based i decided to post it here.     
I've decided to try my hand at do it yourself live rock.     Rather than just doing the standard brick method I made a pretty elaborate sculpture  an abstract thing with lots of folds and shelves, vaguely Lovecraftain.    Anyway I've made a mold of it and  I'm getting ready to cast it.
When i started researching this a while back the ingredients for the reef were  Aragonite, Portland cement, oystershells, and rock salt[the rock salt is supposed to help with make it more porous].   The guy at the reef store told me that I shouldn't use oysters because they release potassium as they break down.    
What should I use for gravel in this  'concrete' mix.   Also since some of the "shelves" are probably thinner than they should be I was thing that I should add something to the mix to strengthen it like pvc shavings or such.    
So my question to you smart chemistry type people out there is what should I use to make up the "live stone"
Thanks, Neil.
