As seen in the pics my tank is drilled in the back. Has Coast to coast overflows.
I have a 75 <acronym title="Gallon">gal</acronym> im going to use as the sump.
I am a bit confused on how the sump is actually going to be plumbed tbh
Can anyone provide any help on this?
Time for a new project! :D
I've never done a build thread before, so bear with me!
I finally picked up the 180 gallon I've been obsessing over this past week, and boy, do I have my work cut out for me!
Preparation for the new monster so far:
The new tank and equipment are all still in the...
Okay guys, I finally got my glass cages starfire front panel for my 180 gallon rebuild... the tank held water perfectly, but I decided to replace the old tinted scratched up front panel... with a nice starfire panel.
So.. I attempted two times already to get this front panel installed...
Got into aquariums a few years ago now and had a 60 gallon tank for about a year and a half.. By chance I got a 180 gallon bowfront all but given to me. Not sure if I was ready for such a large tank, it was just to good of a deal to pass up. Pretty basic setup, two overflows into a standard...

I picked up a 180 Gallon online cheap. Have been out of the hobby for a little while but looking for an excuse to get back in.. I got a good deal so excuse enough.
Im trying to get some ideas as far as equipment and maybe design as I have never really done anything this big.. (90 gallons was...
Hi, everyone! Hope your week is going well!
We are upgrading from a 75g (listed in 'Tank Specs') to a 180g. This tank is being given away and is coming with some already established residents. I really wanted some opinions on whether this tank will be mis-stocked/overstocked. All the fish...

1 miniatus grouper? (not sure about this one)
1 pink tail trigger (heard they were one of the more peaceful triggers)
Hello TRT! I've lurked on these forums a few years but just started posting as I had a question that I couldn't find an answer to... we didn't come too a definite consensus on that question (Coal Slag/Blasting Sand substrate) so I'm doing a build thread so everyone can see if it shakes out or...
I have a wall with an inlay that I would like to put a tank and I have been debating a 4ft vs 6ft tank in this space. My inlay measures 86" long and 12" deep.
I was thinking one of these sized tanks:
125/135 gal 72" x 18" x 20ish" tall
180/210 gal 72" x 24" x 24ish" tall
I'm in the planning stages of a 72x24x31 peninsula reef tank for my living room. (I have to sell a pool table and remodel the room before beginning tank installation.) I will be updating this post as my plan evolves. Feedback is welcome!

OK, here we go. Finally got my tank done. I wanted to wait untill things were done to show all the pics and stuff. For some odd reason I have this thing where I like to see the whole process at once. Some of you out there take your time, and keep us all in suspense, so I will show all the work...
