    This summer I'm going to start a nano reef tank. It's going to be my first marine tank, and I know you should start out bigger, but I don't have the space and I've done a lot of research. Anyway, I'm just wondering about stocking for a 10 gallon tank with a hang on back refugium (I'm not sure...

    Hey guys. Ive always wanted a frag tank and i had an extra 10 gallon tank laying around and some eggcrate. I cut out eggcrate and put it as the bottom and made two L shaped things in the back left and back right and put 2 racks of egg crate on them. So then it had the shelf method used in my...

    today my Rio nano came in the mail first i'll tell you why i bought it then my experience with it, i chose this skimmer because of the price (20$ Amazon), and the reviews said "when" it works its a great skimmer, to me this means its got some design flaws and needs to be tweeked, no problem...

    So I recently decided that I want to add a 10G sump to my 30G reef tank. I don't really plan on making it into a refugium, just want to add water volume to my system and hang my skimmer, filter, and heater out of the way of my display tank. At the same time, being new to the hobby I'm obsessed...
