SELECT AN FAQ CATEGORY

I’m new to the hobby. Do you offer any general strategies for maintaining a successful saltwater aquarium?

Do you have any general maintenance tips specific to the M Series aquarium?

How do I remove algae in my aquarium that may be accumulating on the inside glass surface?

Whether it is visible or not, algae removal needs to be a regular weekly maintenance task. This is performed simply by going over the inner glass surface with a pad or an aquarium magnet, such as the Fluval Razor+ 2-in-1 Algae Magnet (#11083 & #11084).

Is the M Series strip lighting ideal for keeping Acropora and other SPS coral?

For SPS coral, we suggest adding a Fluval CP circulation pump as well as an additional Fluval Marine Spectrum LED. You will also need to buffer the alkalinity level more frequently for these types of corals. Regular water testing and water changes are recommended.

Can I add living coral to my tank after I’ve added cured rock?

Yes, but only if you have measured all key parameters (ammonia, nitrite, nitrate, phosphate, calcium, and alkalinity) and the results are favorable. We recommend including a few snails and blue leg hermit crabs to help deal with any potential algae growth.

Do LPS corals require strong water movement?

Some LPS do. We suggest consulting a reputable marine specialty retailer to confirm the ideal conditions your coral species require. You can also add a Fluval Sea CP circulation pump if you need additional water movement in your tank.

What should I do if my pump output is weak?

Ensure that your water level is within the ideal range indicated in your instruction manual, which came with the product packaging or can be viewed on this website by visiting your aquarium product page. Additionally, ensure that the pump has been well cleaned.

For optimal coral growth, should I add another circulation pump to my M-series aquarium?

We suggest consulting a reputable marine specialty retailer to identify the ideal conditions your coral species require. You can add a Fluval Sea CP circulation pump if you need additional water movement in your tank.
