    I know this has been covered tons but it seems like everything I find to look at or research makes no sense to me. I realize not much of this hobby is one size fits all if you will but I'm looking for a step in a clearer direction. My previous set up was a 29 gallon lit by an aquatic life t5 30"...

    Hello everyone! I have added an album trying to capture the tank as it is currently...I think a couple of corals didn't get the best close ups (I-Pads are really not the best for tank shots), but some of the pics came out great! Check it out! Love to know what you think! I put a link to the...

    I decided to upgrade from my 10 gallon because it is getting filled up with frags after only 6 months. I would have gone bigger but this is all I can afford if I am going to do it the right way. Right now the tank is cycling and has about 15-20 lbs of live rock and 30lbs sand. Equipment...

    Would It be a remarkably bad idea to ask what kind of tang, if any, I could keep in a 55g reef? I know that any tang will eventually outgrow a 55g tank. (except maybe a Kole) No questions there. Im just wondering if i should even attempt this. I was leaning toward a Kole Tang, but have...

    To start I will post some specs and history of this tank. I started this tank as an AP24 with DIY LED's and a HOT filter. It ran really well for a few months, but the LEDs I used were subpar and began to dim. I replaced the LEDs with a 96W Quad PC, and added an Octopus HOB skimmer. This...
