    I think I beat dinoflagellates.

    I had them also... I did a 3 day blackout while dosing hydrogen peroxide. After the 3 days they were gone and the water was crystal clear like I’ve never seen before actually. I considered continuously dosing the peroxide but after asking on here and getting some negative feedback about it I...

    Tropic Isle moved location.....?

    The new place seems smaller, probrably has something to do with cheaper rent and being closer to the highway, more “foot traffic.” They were tucked away in that beat up looking building.

    Aquatic life t5 hybrid led mount

I did read a review where a guy had one and one of the bulbs melted on the end. I haven’t heard that...

    What does your electric bill look like?!

    Pay no attention to the “shame” letters you get from National grid. It’s B.S. When I was working away from home years ago, I was only home for the most part every other weekend.
