    I currently have 3 chinese led fixtures, something like these: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00UMXAR5S/ref=sspa_dk_detail_2?psc=1&pd_rd_i=B00UMXAR5S But I want my lights to be attached to either the side of the tank or the back of the tank and hang from the tank instead of the ceiling. I was...

    List what would be an ideal 150 or 100 gallon build for you. Include all equipment one would need, including a sump. I am trying to gauge a price for my build, so don't go crazy and all out as I want to keep the cost somewhat low and reasonable. Thank you very much! If you have any...

    I previously owned a 30 gallon biocube all in one system and am looking into buying a new tank. I found a 150 gallon tank. Do you think this would be too big for me? Thanks

    I decided to celebrate my 10th year of having saltwater tanks by upgrading to a new 150 gallon system. This will be the 5th system I’ve started, having begun with FOWLR and my most recent system being a mixed reef. This time I’m going to try my hand at a pure SPS dominated reef running the...

    I've been going over and over in my head trying to come up with a stock list for my new 150 gallon tank which is being delivered in a couple of weeks. It's going to be an SPS dominated shallow reef with dimensions of 1500(L)x750(W)x500(H). It will have about 100kgs of rock but because of the way...

    So I'm finally upgrading my 55 and I can't wait to get started! I stopped in at my LFS and saw a used tank in the back corner. It looked nice so I asked some questions. Turns out it's a 150 tall from Glass Cages. It's reef ready and was priced at $550. I was a little apprehensive because it was...

    I've had a lot of time on my hands today, and thought of a hypothetical 150 gallon (72" X 18" X 28") SPS dominated reef. This theoretical tank may come to fruition some day (possibly for my father in a decade when he retires and has time for a nice sized tank, or for me once I'm out of school...

    I purchased this 150 gallon off of CL and the initial plan was to do African cichlids due to the "unknown" factors of starting a saltwater aquarium and the wife's fear of cost and volatility. I got the tank, canopy, stand, rock, sand, 5 gal bucket of Instant Ocean salt, all plumbing, Mag Drive...

    Hello all, I am starting to collect pieces for my new large FOWLR system. I have kept up nanos for awhile and got the itch to get a big tank. I am looking to build a stand out of steel square tubing. I figured that would be sturdy enough. I wanted some advice on what size I should get. Size is...

    Like the title here is my 205 gallon system with a 150g display. It is mostly Sps dominate but I have a good amount of Lps and softies too. But I'm slowly getting righ of them. I'm running 750w of metal halides. With radium 20k on the 2 outsides and a pheonix 14k hqi in the middle. I like the...

    Hmmmm so i recently purchased a 150 reactor and some NPX biopellets from webaquatics.com and have a dilemma. The "kit" they sold comes with a pump a that flows 108gph max. I am running 200ml for a 55 gallon system. TheNPX insert that came in the reactor suggests 350gph for bio pellets. At first...

    Hey all you NFMAS people! Kim and I are looking to get another tank and thinking that a 150 would be right in line for a sweet FOWLR. So if anyone has one sitting around or maybe wanting to downsize give me a shout. We are not looking for a turnkey system, since I believe the fun is building...

    I need a 150 watt metal halide fixture to match my other two. I have corallife pendants but can make most anything work. Must be less than 24" if it is a standard fixture. Must work. Willing to pay fair price. Let me know if anyone has anything that will work. Thanks.
