    No I have not read about it yet. Is it on the forum somewhere?

    New Here So Here's My Setup

    Thanks everyone for the boast of confidence. I try to keep up maintaining the tank as much as possible between school and work which can be a challenge at times.

    Cyano/Algae in sand

    Im not sure it might be diatoms. The sand is about 2 years old so Im not sure if you consider that new or not Bob. Yes kirk I have been doing that every time I do a water change and it helps it from not speading all over the sand. It is pretty much just in that one spot.

    Cyano/Algae in sand

    Okay so I'm pretty sure this is cyano and I have done everything I can think of to solve the problem. This has been going on for the past couple months now and it is driving me crazy. I started off by light starving it for a few days with 50% water change. I then tried dosing it with a cyano killer following instructions on the bottle. Since trying all of those things and continuing 30% water changes every week along with replacing my filter pads the cyano/algae whatever it is keeps coming back in my sand everyday. Whenever the lights turn off it disappears after a few hours and then by lunch time the next day it is back. I have used a par light to dial my LED lights in to 80-100 PAR at the sand and also have cut back on feeding. If anyone has any other ideas for me that would be amazing because I can't stand the pink sand.
  9. Hello my name is Jack and I am fairly new to the bayoureefkeeping family. I started in the hobby a little over two years ago now, and have used the forum before for trouble shooting but just never made an account. I finally took the time to make an account in attempt to get more involved in the hobby. I started off with a 40g breeder tank thanks to my friend Will who also helped teach me how to care for the tank. I had the 40g for about a year and half until I moved and decided to go with a rimless 10g in my new place. The first picture here is of my 10g which sprung a leak 8 months into operation. This is what caused me to go to a 20g tank. I keep all my supplies in the bottom two cabinets which I have never taken a picture of because it is a little messy down there and nothing to really see except the canister filter. I then decided to up my tank size to a 20g (with a rim this time haha) because honestly the rock I have is way to big. I have had the 20g running for about 2 months now and I am pretty happy with the way it is looking so far. This is my only fish in the tank currently and it is the same clown I have had since my very first tank which I am pretty proud about considering this is his 3rd new home since I got him. I had a second clown (a lot smaller) that just disappeared one day to never be seen again. This is the clown's main tank mate with the exception of the urchin. I got this little guy about 3 months ago a little while before transferring from the 10g to the 20g because I had a terrible asterina star problem which he handled in about 3-4 days. Now I go to get stars from my brothers 75g every week to feed the little guy. These are my newest edition to my tank which I just got last week from the livestock market forum on here. I already had a small colony of red zoas which you can barely see on the left side of the picture. This is my first time attempting to keep something other than a softy coral so I'm hoping I can handle it. I really like the motion and color of the frogspawn. I just need to find the right place for the frogspawn and zoas, that is why they are currently just sitting at the bottom front of the tank. Thanks for taking the time to read my little bio about me and my tank. Any tips and tricks are greatly appreciated!
  10. Tanks like this beautiful one right here is why I decided to get involved in the hobby. This is a wonderful thread and I hope one day to plan out a setup like yours! Well done sir!

    Salt has kicked my #%@! I'm going fresh☹️

    I'm really sorry to hear to hear this man because you really do have a beautiful tank. That being said if you are still looking to get rid of it I am very interested in the frog spawn and as well as maybe some of your zoas. If so let me know what day would work best for you and I would love to take a trip over there

    Chinese smart LED & Fluval LED

    Hello I am new here! I am moving and had to break down my 40g tank. I have to different lights for this tank. One is a 36"-46" Fluval Sea LED that I got from petsmart and used for about 6 months. The other is a Chinese smart LED that I purchased off ebay and used for about 10 months. I really don't know how much these are desired, but I would say they are great beginner lights. The Chinese LED works with your smart phone to adjust the light levels for your needs. Fluval Sea LED - $100 Chinese Smart LED - $150
