    Good morning fellow reefers! I am curious as to whether or not I am fully stocked or if there is room for another fish or two. Possibly a small puffer. I have a 40 gallon breeder with overflow, 10 gallon sump/refugium setup which was FOWLR intended which has since turned into a "mixed" tank...

    My T5HOs don't give me the shimmer effect that I love to see and I was hoping to find a very cheap solution to this. I don't need any "useable" lighting, it's merely for the looks.

    Hello all. I first started out here on TRT about three months ago and fell in love with reef tanks many months before that. Well after all those months of drooling over youtube vids and tank shots here, my dream has finally become a reality. I took advantage of Petco's "dollar per gallon"...
