I will attempt to catch up anyone at TRT who is listening up with my new tank here.
I am a newer member so I hope to get to know everyone more.
I was given a 31g 48"x 11"x 13.5"tall acrylic tank. It was home made but never used. A family friend found it on the curb.Came with a dual fuge, a...
Wow, that's a mouthful.
This is my Official Thread (the first "Build" thread I've ever started as I came in with a tank already started).
So HERE it is :
Yes it is still Dry. I am waiting for work to tell me when the office is moving and whether I can start the tank there. If tomorrow...
hello, i have a few questions for you guys and gals.
1. with a downdraft skimmer, i understand that air and water are introduced into a tube filled with bioballs to create micro bubbles. my question is in the schematics i have seen, the air inlet is usually just a few 1/2" pvc 90's, what...
What the heck? I have some ideas I want to try and entering the contest will push me towards actually doing them ;)
I'm building a 125 Gallon system for the house and want to try building a nano from scratch for my desk at the office so this will be the one :D
Nothing in stone yet but I will...
Ok I have been remiss in my tank maintenance. I've been only doing 30% water changes once a month and now that algae is proliferating and coral health starting to decline I need to get back on track. Here are the recent tests and actions:

220 gallon basement sump
72" Aqualight Pro for lights
Hammerhead for sump return
DT is not drilled so I use 2 1200 gph HOB overflows

Here is a temporary test setup. I did not want to risk too many nice things until I get the hang of a smaller system.I put a couple nice pieces in but chances are they are heartier than most of my options.
Here is a cool little frogspawn. Most of the tips are green but some have been turning...
Ok, so I set it up.. took me a while.. since I had no help and all this stuff was new to me. Im still not sure if I have it done correctly.. I read the stuff, hooked it together and here we go. Everything is running and the water is moving around. Nervous and excited. I hope I did everything...
well I know some or most of the fish Im going to list in here most likely wont be good tank mates. But it is a start. So I started to look into fish that I like. then I will get an idea of what I might want in my tank. please feel free to tell me Im crazy or need to rethink the fish I like. he...
I have been inspired by the nano buildoff to do a nano tank! I already have a 55 gallon reef, but I also have a 37 gallon fowlr that I want to tear down and use the sand and rock for a nano.
The plan is to use a blue 5 gallon minibow aquarium that my sister is giving me. I have had small tanks...
