    As some of you know (from a earlier post) My YT got stuck to a PH last week. He had been dooing well and eating for the last few days but I noticed he did not eat his dinner last night. So today I threw evrything but the kitchen sink in there. Nori, Misys, ground silver sides, ground krill...

    After being out of the game for a few years i am going to finally start a new tank. It is a 75 gallon with the aspirations to SPS dominate tank. I have had the tank for a few years and never did anything with it (due to lack of time). I just ordered the overflow from life reef and expect it to...

    75 AGA tank, C2C overflow DART for CLS, OR 3500 for return pump. 20l sump, MRc1 skimmer, yada yada... Problem is with the CLS. It was suggested to me to use one of my 2 1.5" bulkheads in the overflow to feed the dart for the CLS. My origional plan was to have 4 1" bulkheads for the CLS...

    My 90 Gallon Build/Swap thread Well I guess I should make a thread to show the progress of my upgrade. As of right now I have a 75 gal tank that I have had set up for about 2 yrs now. It wasnt reef ready when it was given to me and I had no clue on what I wanted to do with it but kinda learned...

    ;) Here's what I plan to get rid of: 1.) 120 gallon AGA tank with manufacturer stand and nice DIY canopy (black, all of it) - overflow is on one side in the center, so the tank is meant to be viewed on 3 sides (not necessary though.) One drilled closed loop intake on same side as overflow...

    Since I don't post much outside our club forum, I thought you all might enjoy another build thread. My current tank is a 75 all glass sps BB dominant tank. The objective of the new tank is to have allmost all pumps and plumbing hidden from the naked eye and be viewable on all three sides...

    Well the 75 is coming down shortly. I just ordered the tank and I will be documenting the progress in this thread. Was going to go with an all-glass tank. However it was tough to pass down an acrylic tank. Plus Bob might of beat me down if I didn't have him build it:rotflmao: . Tank is...

    Come along and join with me in my insanity! The new tank build has started. This process includes ripping up the carpet, redoing the flooring and then building everything else. I'll be building the stand, tank and sump. Right now, the going is slow since I haven't refinished the floors yet...

    Okay, I've been doing some more drawing and I think I've finally got the layout of the tank and equipment. Not too many details but just enough to get an idea of how much space I DON'T have... As it is, the stand is already 4ft high. Ideas? Comments? Please give it the third degree, I want to...

    Most of these pictures at the start of this will be in the same order as my other thread but the club has migrated so here we go. I bought this tank over a year ago, the same order from Rob's that Lageo04's tank came in on. Looking back, I'm glad that I didn't rush to set it up and have it going...

    Hi all, I am in the process of planning a 180 gallon reef. I have been keeping reefs for about 8 years but never on the scale I am planning now. I have always wanted an awsome and large system and I have finally gotten the go ahead from my wife. The system is going to be located in our family...

    I have an Oceanic 37 which is drilled in the upper right hand corner. I want to drill one more return in the upper left, and at least intakes for a closed loop. I would put the closed loop intakes in the middle say 10" down from the top and 8 or so from the sides. As if that's no enough...

    I changed my mind on setting up my 120g and think I want something smaller. I am looking for a 40g -RR- breeder tank and stand, or a similar size bowfront tank- (no center brace at the top.) Who has one? I also will be selling the perfercto 120g (60x18x26) and my 75 AGA once I have transfered...

I am...
