I'm just gonna take a stab here:

That kind of shell erosion doesn't happen in 3 days and certainly doesn't happen at a Ph of 7.8.

The best I can come up with is that the erosion was there when...

Anything that makes water changes easier and faster is worth 5 times the cost you lay out. Nice work!

Just a few words of caution on the Magdrive. They say they can be run externally, but don't...

I also have some concerns about the test results. I think even in a dirt with flourite cap substrate, and a minimal disturbance you describe, I would find that result a little tough to accept,...

I'm not a shrimp keeper, but I have had amanos. The one thing I can say about amanos is that they have a serious appetite. I don't see them leaving much food around for snails to clean up.

When you say you just got them, just how long have you had them? Diana's assessment and advice are 100%, but it's possible they were (or at least the one in the picture was) sold to you in that...

I hadn't thought of constipation. I've read of folks feeding peas and dosing Epsom Salt (it's a mild muscle relaxant) at a rate of 1 to 3 teaspoons per 5 gallons. Although it's a bit odd that he...

Though I've never done it myself, you would have to deal with transhippers that they work with here in the U.S. But I have to agree on the caution about ordering this time of year.

Honestly, I wouldn't recommend the MagDrive for you're intended use. They were never designed to move air as well as water. I don't think you'll find a whole lot of SW folks using them to drive their...

If your test Nitrite tests are in fact accurate, I would suggest as Raymond S. has: add Ammonia in measured amounts as it seems the bacteria that produce nitrates from nitrites are "underfed".

The better place to ask that question may be a SW forum. Certainly some here keep SW tanks as well, but that % may be a small sample size. When I was 100% SW, one of the issues with skimmer pumps was...

A picture would help. An impeller like that is usually found in a SW skimmer pump. Not a Magdrive pump. I have a feeling you have a modified impeller that simply failed. I know Danner sells some...

One of the "losers" when water gets to a Ph in the 6.4 range is the inability to assimilate calcium. If you examine the shells really close, you should see some pitting. Guessing a little here too,...

I have to hand it to them for customer service. Every product delivers a clunker every now and then, but the quality companies make good, and API does it fast and painlessly.
