#2 looks like a GARF purple bonsai that is not happy. Are the polyps green? It grows exactly as you describe, slow and encrusts and then shoots out sprouts. Tiny frags (<1/2'') of it often go for...

You should know that flame scallops are notoriously difficult to keep alive in captivity. Most are dead within a few months. Having said that, they should be fine with the bass, but the wrasse may...

Looks like part of his body. Its like a little cover to cover the hole in their shell after they close up. It should be there on the others too, no worries.

No, that should be fine. I don't think one bulb will give enough coverage for the sides, you could go with 2X150W though if you wanted.

Yeah, takes a lot to kill them IF they get acclimated to captivity AND you can constantly feed them. I think you were lucky, definitely NOT a beginner's coral. I think they sell them to beginners...

You will get less heat and much more light with T5s. I am a MH guy, I love the look and the results, but if you are set against it because of heat, definitely go t5, you wont be sorry.

They are nonphotosynthetic and VERY hard to keep alive. It will probably die, but try feeding phyto it may help.

LaMotte is great, but very expensive. There is no way it is cheaper in the long run. The most expensive API kit is $7.

API are very good kits, esp for the price. The only complaint some guys have about API is that they give a broad reading (i.e. Ca only tells you with 20ppm). For most people this is fine though. I...

O2 is rarely a problem, you should be fine as far as that goes. High CO2 is a bigger issue in the winter because your house is all closed up. This will cause the pH to fall and it is difficult to...

Turn off all the pumps, put sand in a big fish net, lower the net to the bottom and dump the sand out slowly. This has worked for me in the past. Works just as well getting sand out.

Yup, did it for many years, just make sure to get distilled and not spring water. Distilled water TDS is 0 and spring water TDS is pretty high (200+).
