40b

  1. General Reef Discussion
    Hi everyone, I have a 40b reef tank and would like to consider a skimmer. Currently I have no sump and have no plans to install one, but of course that could change. I already have decent RODI, etc and have OK water, but going from "OK" to "very good" is more time-consuming than I can handle...

    So after a good bit of time being dormant and licking my wounds from taking down my 300 I can't take it anymore...I have to have a tank so I've been collecting parts and pieces and again spent an enormous amount of money to get back into the hobby. May still be a month or so till I actually get...

    Hi. I'm looking for peaceful fish recommendations for a 40b. And will a semi aggressive fish harass peaceful tankmates?
  8. Substrate Free Tank Husbandry (Bare bottomed)
    I have a 40B with 1/2 BB and 1/2 substrate (back 1/2 is BB w/ a powerhead blowing across it). I'm upgrading to a 75 acrylic and seriously thinking of going the BB Route. My concerns are: (1) Watchman goby who doesn't burrow. He like holes in the rocks. (1) Yasha Goby and Pistol pair that...

    I love my 40B, but am upgrading to a 75 acrylic. Picked up a new tank and stand on the cheap (needs a metric fork ton of sanding, polishing etc, but worth it). As you can see my 40 is getting a bit crowded and I just so happen to have the wall space + found a killer deal. Debating on the...

  11. Reef Fish
    Currently I have a 40B and going to upgrade to a 75 at the end of the month. I was wondering what type of reef fish out there that would eat nori? I know tangs do and foxfaces but what other type of fishes will do that?

    Hello everyone I am planning to upgrade from a 40B to a 75 gallon and needed some help in planning on my move, luckily I won't get the tank in another month or so. So here are some of things I was wondering. I want to increase my depth of my sandbed, can I add "dead" sand into the tank without...
  13. Seahorses & Pipefish
    I'm thinking about setting up a 40 Gallon Breeder tank, seahorses? Hippocampus reidi is my favorite seahorse, by far. (http://seahorsesource.com/?wpsc-product=h-reidi-2) Hippocampus comes (Tiger Tail seahorse) is probably next. (http://seahorsesource.com/?wpsc-product=h-comes) I'm thinking...

    I left for school 10 months ago and lost all time and space for a reef tank, but luckily I've just moved into a house with my girlfriend down here in Florida, and my parents being the great people they are drove some corals from my 90 gallon 25 hours down to me :banana:. Theyve been in my old...

    Hello! I am new to this forum, so hopefully I do this right. I had a SW about 10 years ago that was a pretty basic setup, 20g, UGF FOWLR. It was fine, never anything to write home about and was finally scrapped after a few dead fish. More recently I have started keeping freshwater planted...

    Hey Guys, It has come time to plan my next tank. This build will probably occur in July, but I like to plan ahead to prevent mistakes. Alright, I was thinking ea 40b reef? What is your opinion? I'm leaning towards a reef, and I know the 40b has a better footprint for one. Will stocking...

    I know there are a lot of 40B build threads on here but I just wanted to share my tank as well. The tank is a in wall tank that is in my basement. The tank has been running for about 4 months with live rock in it. I just started to add fish and corals last week. I plan on it to be a mixed reef...

    Could it B? Believe it or not it B. My 46 bow front over the last year developed salt creep up the front glass from the bottom frame that only needed wiping every 2 weeks or so. Still, with the advice of Fat Tony, I decided to shut it down, as I am not going to reseal any aquarium. My 20g QT...

    So I've decided it is time to upgrade my tank. I'm currently running a 10 gallon SW reef tank and a 55 gallon FW planted tank. I'm limited on size available in the house I live in because I only have a space that is 72.5"Wx78"Hx16.5"D in our dining room. So I am downgrading my FW tank to a 40B...
