    Hello everyone! I've got a little problem here. I recently purchased a 10 gal tank in order to use as a mixing bin for water changes. Previously, I was using plastic water containers. I've learned that I should be waiting longer before I place the new water in the tank. Normally, I would just...

    Hello all! We are moving in about one month and we will need to move our 45-gallon reef tank. The good news is, it's only a 15-minute drive away. I think I have a plan, but I was hoping that I could get some feedback to let me know if I am forgetting something or is there is a better way...

    I am setting up a new tank to move my reef to and wanted colored sand and I saw some pink Crayola colored sand and wondered if I could use it in my reef tank? I did a little research and most people advise not to use it. My questions is why not? What would be harmful about it? Would it...

    I am upgrading to a 75 gal. I want to put a sand base in the bottom of the tank. Any certain product I should use? Will sand from the beach work? Also trying to design my sump. I have a wet/dry sump that was on an old 120 gal and a 10 gal tank. I was thinking I could tie the two...

    So...maybe I'm just being a nervous new mom, to a little yellow watchman goby, but I figured I might as well ask... I made the mistake of using about two handfuls or so of larger substrate from my LFS to start the live sand process a little while back. I added this to my sugar-sized dry...

    I had about 4-5 inches of sand when I set up my tank, but now it is almost gone in places by the glass. I want to add more sand because my stilts holding the rock up are all showing. They used to barely show. I know I need to add it slowly little by little, but what else? I have also noticed...

    Here is my 125 FOWLR. I bought this tank in 2003 from AquaZoo. :rolleyes: We broke it down in 2005 when we moved to FB, and didn't get it back up until November 2007. Before I knew TRT or NFMAS existed, I set up the tank they way it was before, crushed coral substrate.. BAH. I changed it to...

    My LFS has a biocube size 14 for $185. He has tahitian live rock for $5 a pound. He has livesand, $1 per pound. When you buy a tank he will supply you with the amount of water you need for your tank, for free. All of the above said, LS, LR, and LW, are all from his huge tank. BioCube x 1 $185...

    Can I use some of the crayola colored sand in my tank? I'm just curious. It is so pretty, but it seems like the color would come off.

    Ok, I have the 90 gallon running with the 30 gallon sump. I added about 140 pounds of various white sands, but evidently made a big mistake. The sand was labeled as 'no-rinse', and in my excitement, I didn't. My water has been extremely cloudy. I got the skimmer going and added filter media with...

    I have everything cleared out of my 75g tank but before I power it down and start to dismantle it, I was wondering if anyone would be interested in the substrate (mixture of crush coral and aragonite sand). Local pickup only and you must supply your own buckets/containers. Please PM me.
