  1. There are more than one species of peppermint shrimp. To my knowledge there's only one that is Reef safe AND eat aiptasia. It's a real gamble. I almost lost my trumpets in the same way. Luckily I was able to catch them all. I've had good success with the peps that Seth @ Coral Fever carries. Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk

  6. Dumping LEDs. Back to T5HO we GO!

    I recently made the switch. My experience is anecdotal at best since I made the switch after a tank crash that took out 99% of my acros. LPS were unaffected by the crash and I've seen improvements in their health and color since the change. After making the switch I did see noticeable improvements in PE and color in the few remaining acros I had. My green slimer has more PE than I've ever seen from it even before the crash. It does seem that my new acros are encrusting more than my old ones were. I will say that I am glad I made the switch if for no other reason that not having to worry about the light portion of maintaining the reef. I no longer have to worry about whether or not the lights are "correct". Intensity and color channel settings have been removed from the equation. It's a really nice feeling. I also enjoy the look of T5. I managed to get a bulb combo that I am happy with on my first attempt. I was worried I would miss dusk/dawn but a pair of actinics on my 2 bulb channel has kept me happy so far. I previously had a pair of radions and then added a 4 bulb retro kit. I have restocked the tank with a load of new acros so I'm looking forward to seeing how they do under this lighting.

  11. LaRon's upgrade: PA 120

    Tank is roughly 2 months post move. No sandbed has helped raise my nutrients. I'm staying around 2ppm nitrates naturally now and I have seen improvements in color and growth. As a result I have been able to increase flow by about 15% .
