    I am thinking about building my next tank. I have a friend with a glass business so I am thinking it may be a cost savings over buying a commercial made tank. Of course, I have many questions, so I welcome any input from those who have done this before. Considering a 150g.....60x24x24 Is...

    Hey everyone! I recently decided that I wanted to get back into fishkeeping after a LONG hiatus. In college, I kept a Lake Malawi 55G cichlid tank until I moved out to CA in 2004. I've been fishless since then, but I'm getting back in the game! I bought a 65G tank with the intention of...

    Thank you to anyone that can help. I have reached a new milestone in the hobby, as I am almost completely out of room to put anymore corals in my tank. In order to allow them to keep growing and to free up some space in my tank, I want to set up a frag tank in my sump room. I currently have a...

    Hey guys! I'm new to this forum, and relatively new to "REEF tanks". I've owned several marine tanks that contained anemones, a few small hardy corals, MANY inverts: starfish, shrimps, Sea urchins, a pair of clowns, Green spotted puffers (marine & fullgrown). I had one 29 gallon, with an...

    3 months before I moved from my old house i had set up my first salt water tank I custom built the stand and built everything as best I could from the ground up. I never got to enjoy it so once I got my new house I immediately started building a new one.
  12. Reefing Equipment
    How many times did you sketch out your dream idea for a tank, sump, fuge, etc. before actually building it? I already know the answers to this question will be varied, with most stating, "millions of times." I get that most of us, myself included, are visual in nature, and prefer a graphic...

    Well, it has been nearly 5 years... (shesh, I did my doctoral work faster, seriously!), but I have my 120g back from storage and ready for water! It went to my in-laws in May 2011 for the move to DC, then I moved back to NC, and then a few more years before I could get it back. It also serves as...

    So I've had my 29BC for 11 months now and I've made leaps and bounds. Thank to alot of reefers here at TRT I've learned a ton and I have succeeded with my BC running Steve's LED upgrade. I have SPS, softies and some LPS thriving in my tank. Now I'm ready to build a new tank. I'd like something...

    So I guess it's time for me to post about my build. I guess I should start with how it all began.... I have always been into fish but never really had a tank or knew much about them. My mom had a pond with gold fish in it. She was given a 75g tank to winter the fish in and that's when it all...
