  1. I have yet to dump any chemicals into my tank although I have heard that Phos RX apparently works wonders Sent from my SAMSUNG-SGH-I337Z using Tapatalk
  2. Wow. Just finished a 3 day blackout and boom! All the algae is completely gone. Wasn't sure if I would see results like this. Now I just need to resurrect my corals from the dark lol. How often can I do this? Crazy thing is my tank is 8 months old and I have a protein skimmer, only feed my fish every other day with minimal feedings and do 25% water changes every week so I am a bit puzzled as to why I even have an algae issue at all.

  3. Can't imagine the electric bill from those lights!
  4. When I lived in California I visited Monterrey Bay Aquarium regularly. This was one of my favorite exhibits. That and the sea horses and watching see otters swim in the kelp just feet from the aquarium.
  5. Nice. I will be there this Saturday. Too bad my tank isn't SPS friendly (lights not quite strong enough). Thanks for the info. That is all good to know.
  6. Of the three options in Lafayette, which store would you say has the best prices and selections?
  7. Thanks guys, guess i will keep going to TFB. It's convenient that I go there twice a month for work anyways.
  8. Does anyone know where I can find a comprehensive list of marine stores in Louisiana? Being a resident of Alexandria, petco is pretty much my only option so I often find myself venturing to Tropical Fish Bowl in Lafayette. Wondering if there is anything closer. Petco is really sad how poor a condition they keep their marine life in. I often See dead fish at the bottom of the tank. Some tanks have no water flow at all and are full of algae. I did buy a fire shrimp which has managed to stay alive but for my corals and nems I have no plans of buying anything at petco.
  9. Thanks. I am glad I found this group.
  10. Thanks.
  11. In living room next to T.V. About to add some torch, star polyps, and frogspawn to go with a bubbletip anemone which I am also about to add. Question - is it possible to add another clown with a clown who has lived by himself for 11 years? My guess would be no, it isn't possible, but I would love your opinion on that.
  12. I also have a 20 gallon nano. About to add softies and LPS coral.
  13. Hey guys. New to this forum but have had a saltwater tank for 11 years. Do any members live in Alexandria?
