Corel I got from ocean

While in the Caribbean I picked up a couple pieces of coral and was thinking what do I have to do to them before I put them in my tank.  Anyone know if I can do this?  Thanks.

Nitrate problem

Posted on September 8, 2013 at 3:43pm 1 Comment

Any ideas on how to keep my nitrate levels lower?  The only thing I have been doing is large water changes, 60 gallons each week in a 90 gallon tank. Any filter accessories out there to help?  The tank has a forest of plants, 12 or so larger fish with  6 neons and a half dozen  baby fish in the last week.  All my chemistry is great except the nitrate levels.  Thanks.

I have a Marineland c530 canister filter that is sucking up the small fish, neons, to the intake and killing them.  Any ideas on how to put something over the intake to lessen the intake pressure by increasing the size of the intake?
