    So I have had my new 90 gallon rimless cube up and running in my new house for about 2 months. I have come to the conclusion that there is simply not enough room to maintain and operate underneath the tank. My plan is to plumb the sump into the basement, directly below the tank. 1. How...

I can get the tank down the stairs and everything just fine, but at the bottom of the stairs there is no way to swing the tank around. I was wondering if a tank can sit on it's side pane briefly? My vision is to bring it down...

    So, I started out this hobby (did this 10 years ago) "just messing around" with a few tanks. My thought was to create a "fish store" type of system in my basement that I could just watch grow over time and enjoy from a distance. It would not affect the rest of the house and it would just be my...

    I started having a problem with one of my tanks with a thick slime on the surface. The problem then moved to my second tank. This left only a couple of things it could be: Something in the air or my top-off water. First I thought it might be my 14 year-old son and his sudden need to spray 10...

    Hey guys... Looking to set up better than I currently am. The few that have seen my setup know that I need the upgrade! I need a sump, skimmer, return pump, hang on overflow, etc. Basically treat it as though I have nothing. If you even have parts that will help me on the way let me know...
