Q&A Letter Spotlight

Bryan Chevrie writes to Bob about:
Aquarium Setup Advice

Bob: I'm an aquarist with lots of questions. I'm setting up my first saltwater aquarium, I've had a freshwater planted tank for over a year with lots of success. I've read several books on the subject some of which were Natural Reef Aquariums, by John Tullock, The Reef Aquarium vol. I, by Charles Delbeek and Julian Sprung, Protein Skimming & Activated Carbon Secrets, Live Sand Secrets, and Water Quality guidelines for Marine Aquariums by you and recently The Captive Marine Aquarium by Wayne Shang that you recommended in FAMA. All of these are excellent books, so as you might guess I have more.

Product Review of Algae Mower VAC

Manufactured by KLB Products

This item was first seen at one of the many ‘company products’ booths at the 2012 DFW MACNA! When first seen, said to myself “WOW, an aquarium Weed Eater!” After seeing it demonstrated, came away quite impressed with its capability, clever design and that its far more than a single tool for removing unwanted algae or trimming desired algae, as it can also be used for trimming corals that may be growing too close to each other (soft or hard), possibly removing aiptasia pest anemones, and a gravel cleaner in several different ways, all without getting your hands wet. And possibly the more.
