tank of the month

  1. Members Tanks
    Well, this was my first tank of anything above 50 gallons. Almost all of the equipment is from MIReefers, all of the supplies are from Lowes (I live less than ¼ mile away; BADDDD idea), and the fish and corals are from either MIReefers or a local fish store named Mother's Reef. All of the work-...

  4. Advanced Topics
    In contrast to Andy's thread does anyone feel we are manipulating our tanks so much so to achieve a certain color or growth speed that we are one step away from a total tank crash? With so much hands on attention if you forget to dose or feed the tank it seems a crash could ensue due to...

  6. Site Feedback and Questions
    Since we are upgrading the site soon what things would you like to see changed or added? I can't promise I or any other mods/staff can make any of them happen but we would like to hear some ideas. The Team MR/Mods have been discussing this for a couple of weeks now and have some exciting stuff...

  8. Do It Yourself
    Hello everyone, I'm pretty new to saltwater and I just started a 55gal. reef tank and I want to use johnos 10gal design to build a 29gal refugium. I can do the tank mods, but I don't know what kind of pump, overflo, skimmer or othr parts to use. Any Ideas.
  9. Site Feedback and Questions
    I am sure this has been discussed, but I still would like to broach it. Why can't MR have a Tank of the Month or Tank of the Quarter (meaning only four tanks a year). The rules can be a canned sheet to fill out, describing equipment, lighting, animals and so on. In my opinion it shouldn't be so...

    I'm thinking of upgrading my lighting on my 24g nano. I'm thinking of a Coralife Aqualight Advanced Tank-Mount, 1- 150 W 14,000K HQI. Is anyone using or have any comments on this light? Here's a link as well...

  14. Reef Discussion
    As some of you may recall, about 6 weeks ago I dealt a near fatal blow to what seemed like a half acre of green hair algae in my tank.......... Those of you who don't remember, or never heard of my "ordeal" can re-live it here....... http://www.michiganreefers.com/forums/showthread.php?t=79123...
  15. Site Feedback and Questions
    thought it would be cool to do a tank of the month of sorts here on mr. i know theres not a whole lot of members compared to rc so maybe do it less often. tank of the quarter maybe, every 3 months or someting. could do a poll with entries type of thing for selection. just thought id throw...

  18. Lighting, Filtration and Other Equipment
    Has anyone experienced having the jar on an RO System crack when using a Kent float shut off valve system? This happened today and luckily we were home or our whole house would have flooded. If you have had this problem too, what did you find out and could it be that the shutoff system over...
  19. SPS Keepers
    If anyone has read reefkeeping.com, you know they feature a "Tank of the Month" every month in their online "magazine." Anyhoo, almost every TOTM tank is SPS dominated with mostly plate & stags in the tank, with the exception of November's issue. Even with other sites that I've seen with full...
