Aquarium Invertebrates: Aiptasia, dinoflagellate algae and cyanobacteria - a three-way symbiosis?

By Tim Wijgerde, M.Sc. on Apr 11, 2012 at 10:30 AM

Feature Article: Silica In Reef Aquariums

By Randy Holmes-farley, Ph.D. on Jan 14, 2003 at 07:00 PM

Why would I recommend dosing silica? Largely because creatures in our tanks use it, the concentrations in our tanks (at least in mine) are below natural levels, and the sponges, mollusks, and diatoms may not be getting enough to thrive.
