an Idea that I was working on was to use Solar panels to power the electricity of the lighting(or more devices).
Initial cost is high, but in long term pays off. However, not every location has...

First: I actually moved it for a while to the bottom of my tank. It was there for a while and then started to turn white. As condition, I would say not too much light nor heavy flow.

Actually no "coral" was around it, that were my live rocks.
After about 3 weeks the Green Star Polyp coral is not opened up yet.
Since few days ago parts of the coral turned white...
I have been experiencing the same problem, missing fish.
Many reasons could be.
In my case, the fish could die in hideouts such as inside a hole, behind surfaces which won't be easy to spot.

As I said I had 4 fishes (ie clown, damsel, fire gobby) disappear.
I was suspecting they somehow slide between my custom made background decor and the glass, get stuck there!...

I bought Green Star Polyp and torch coral this weekend.
When I got home both were closed. The torch opened on the same day.
Maybe two polyps emerging from green star polyp but later closed, now...
Would someone share some insight about his/her purchase experience about this online store (fragalot.ca)
About quality, size and how they got their coral, any bad experience, etc.

While ago my Green Chromis disappeared! and just few days ago my Clown fish dispersal (He was there 3 hour later missing).
Tank is covered. I checked inside my return box, inside the sump, inside...
You may need to leave the trap inside the tank for sometime so they get used to it. Try not to feed them and leave the food inside the trap to encourage them get into it.
I would set my priority...
Make a DIY trap:
Get a family sized plastic drink (those coke or soda bottles).
Cut the tip on the cone anywhere to make a whole as large your fish.
Then make another cut from where the cone...
I have found few dark color starfish in size of 4mm in my quarantine tank.
But my clown fish liked them so much he ate most of them!
Actually I am wondering if they could be breed just like...
The following helped me a lot to start
I would say to reef safe. Just because corals are absolutely beautiful word.
Also reefs will have less "bio-load" on your system. This means you can keep more of corals in fixed space compare to...
I have no idea about your city, however if you keep checking you see good deals are coming and going, so not to be worry. People move to smaller unit or just get tired of their tank or can't spend...
I have as much as 80 lbs in my main tank(90 gallon). I Still have 90lb of sand and rock left.
I am thinking to add them in both my sump and refugium. In cliff's photo I see rock is added to sump...
Go biger size at least 75 gallon since from this size the dept of tank increases to 18inches (about 45 cm), compare to 55 gallon with 13" (30 cm) dept this little extra means a lot.
You could buy...
I have recently bought few items usewd so here is my experience:
-Try to pay even less than 350$ ( you could even go 300)
-Do not rush to buy, you could find more deals
-Sometimes photo is...
I myself started recently, I bought many item from kijiji and crgaislist. check them once a day (if you are in a major city) you could get good deals here and there.
For example for you live rock...
check very useful articles, helped me a lot
also I like:
Don't do it to...
There are many options and I think after all research maybe you have to pick one that might received favor for personal preference too!
for now I decided on:
There are tons of models and many brands, all sort of claims. How do you select your supply from food, to additive to media or even equipments.
Of curse price is a factor, ie I won't buy expensive...
Clarification about UV; I hope that I need to rely less on phosphate remover to control algae considering UV denature floating organism; however I guess still bio-film of algae over time could form...
If I'm not mistaken all these [phosphate/ammmonia/nitrate/ etc] removers are substituted when system can not catch up in natural filtration. So if system is established well there should be no need...
I have 90 gallon with 150 lbs of rock. Sump + refugium
I have a media reactor + UV filter in my sump. I plan to buy more reactor to have a different media.
System is new with only one clown fish...
