I've been out of the hobby for a few years. I held on to a few items just in case I ever got back in. But, I don't see that day anytime in the near future and I am trying to clear out my basement a bit.
So, free to the first person that can pick them up from my place.
Have a 175w MH fixture...
I got a marineland 75 gallon aquarium (48 x 18) and stand that I bought from petsmart. I am planning to drill holes on the sides for overflow and place a sump under the stand. The sump I got is a standard 20 long.
The problem is the stand has a front center brace that is not allowing...
So, as a few of you know, I've been in the process of setting up a new tank for the past couple months... And, I've finally gotten to a point where I have some free time to start a build thread :) And, I have enough pics to make it interesting.. ;)
So, it all started a few months back when I...
So I bought this frag under the name Red Litho (Lithophyllon), but I highly doubt it is truly a litho. However, I have been unable to figure out what it is at all. I can't find anything like it. I mean it kinda looks like a litho but the colors are nothing like anyone has ever seen or heard...
As much as I like to keep an open top for gas exchange and clear lighting, I've always found the drastic inrease in water top-offs a real PITA.
I know the trend right now, especially with nanos, is to hang a pendant over an open top tank. Right now I'm trying to design a lid with my LEDs in...
I've been struggling for many months trying to improve my photography skills. One of my greatest challenges was my tank (Cadlights 39GPro) has a very slight bowfront - just enough to distort virtually every photograph.
I finally picked up an acrylic top-down box (Melevs Reef) and am amazed at...

How high would you want your tank off the ground? I am asking at what height and why you like it there. I am going to use the center of the tank as the ref height because different tanks are taller then others. I would also like to know this info more for a rimless tank then a standard tank...
I was experimenting with my DIY phototube for some top-down shots and managed to get these:

Man I am so wound to get a new tank... as some know I am a ZOA MANIAC! I want to find the top 10 COOLEST zoas and make a huge area devoted to it in my new tank... SHOW ME THE WAY!
I want to see some SOLID top 10's! Make this photo intense!
Coral always looks better to me viewed "top-down" than through the glass. I've been thinking lately..If i got myself a starphire tank, would that be more like looking @ my coral top-down since the glass is so much clearer?....:unsure:
mods please move to General Reef, i posted this in the wrong...
I took some mediocre pics of my Acans tonight. Curious what others have out there as well.
This Acan has multiple colors.
These are purplish with an orange mouth
First picture is without the flash, then with the flash. It is blue-purple color.

Angela's 5.5 Gallon Office Tank - Voting Starts Now!
I set this tank up 4 months ago for a contest over on nano-reef.com and I thought I'd share with all the locals.
It's a standard 5.5 gallon AGA with 18" 40w T5 lighting, a large HOB filter with submersible lights that serves as a fuge with...
