Trip to the Bahamas!!!! :D

Im not sure but Im guessing theyre protected waters. If possible I want to bring back a couple pieces of LR.

Any other helpful advice for ...

RO for the impoverished

Can anyone recommend a decent RO unit for a reasonable price? No one in my neck of the woods knows diddly about them. In fact, the LFS I deal with doesn't even recommend their use. He claims RO isn't necessary for our local water.
I have been getting by fairly well with regular tap water for about a year now, but I think I'd see even happier corals with RO or RO/DI. Besides, God only ...

Question - possible die off / after re-arranging rocks


I know this may be a vague question, but I was wondering if I'm in for a mini cycle after re-arranging some rocks last night.

I had to remove my flame angle last night. I've tried to catch the SOB for over 3 months with no luck. He took a liking to my Elegance and nearly killed it. So - I had to remove him/her.

Since I couldn't catch it (barbless hook, trap, food ...
