    Almost all my corals are green and the actinic just feels monochrome lately. What so you guys have that you can frag for me that's red, orange, purple, pink? I'd even consider blue. Preferably LPS/SPS. I've never been drawn to zoanthids, which is probably the main reason for my problem in...

    So, I'm an idiot. I put the gasket on the wrong side of my bulkhead for my internal overflow. Now I have a small leak from the tank into the fuge. If I unscrew the overflow to fix the bulkhead, is the whole tank going to try and drain?

    Decided that since I'm doing a full on upgrade to my existing 75g to a 4' 120g I would start a build thread. I've posted a couple things recently and received a handful of pm's regarding a few aspects of this build in particular. I'll go ahead and update everything as it is constructed over the...

    So I purchased an 18" Reef Octopus Refugium - and it looks new in the box has the light which works. But I am missing one of the holders. Called the Coralvue and they told me they have not made them for over 2 years and so they have no extra parts. So please advise me what to do. I also...
  6. Do It Yourself
    I know it can be done but is it worth doing? I see sumps I need going for $300-$400, do these aftermarket sumps have features or material that can't be duplicated going diy? or are we just paying for someone elses craftsmanship? When u add in the cost factor of the material needed, will you...

    I may be picking up a 90 gallon with a broken pane tomorrow. I am considering replacing the pane with plywood such as you would see in an all plywood tank, but wondering how feasible this would even be? I know that I'll have to re-seal the entire tank anyway, so I may just go get a piece of...

    Not sure if this tank will be stable on the stand, it's a 55 gallon being supported by 4 2x4 beams. The backside of the Aquarkum is barely wide enough to sit on the wood, should I put a piece of foam under the tank or add 2 support beams in the middle?

    Hey all. I noticed a clear gel like stuff in a line between some zoas yesterday. When I got home from work the colony was covered completely and the lights were off. I removed the colony and did a lugols dip. After a 3 minute soak I wiped it all down with a q-tip removing all the slime. I...

    catastrophic disaster, 110 gal planted blowout :-( Anyone know where I could get a double 40 stand for a good price? Or double 55 stand? Petco has $1 gal tank right now I think Or a 4x2 tank? I dont know what to do. I guess todays plan is to scoop out substrate and move tank outside.

    ...but I think they do, and they use them strictly to devise ways to torment humans. lol I got a rock flower nem at the swap. Figured my tank is a few months older now and after my first nem disaster getting a hardier version might be a better intro into keeping these fascinating creatures. I...

    Auuugggh. I didn't know where to post this. I spit-shined my tank yesterday, so I know it wasn't there. I have some salt creep at the very bottom of my tank on the outside, coming up from the base in the very middle of the tank. I took a picture, but I am not very good at posting. Oh ****...

    Well I have had this tank up and running for 3 weeks. It came with live rock and sand. The sand was in a bucket for the past 2 1/2 weeks and I then put it in. The water was DIRTY, so I ran some external filters with filter floss and then did a 25% w/c. Well I tested the water today and the...

    Last evening I was sitting in my living room and I heard the sound of arcing electricity. I looked over at my reef tank to see flickering light and smoke rising from the back of the stand. A few months back I replaced an old powerstrip with a temporary one. Life being what it is, I had forgotten...

    Anyone else on here obsessed with their lawns/landscaping? It's yet another 'hobby' I have that might as well be a part time job. It's almost like unless it's high maintenance, it's not for me.

    My two tanks a 180g and a 37 gallon are plumbed together, and have a 75 gallon sump/refugium also plumbed into the same system. The 180g is very clean, no unwanted algae or any cyano, but my 37 gallon is covered in hair algae and cyano, and I can't get rid of it!!! Now the water parameters are...

    After seeing TBD180REEF's (Tom's) tank over the weekend, I decided I need to do some major work on my tank. His tank is just jaw dropping and it inspiried me to improve mine! Well I am forcing my self to create this to show everyone how bad, IMO, my tank is and how I WILL improve it over the...
