    Which is the best way to go for a 135g system to include a full reef and fish?
  3. General Reef Discussion
    I am starting a 135g system and I have no filter system yet and I found this used only 6 months old hardly used $100.00. Any good do I buy it, and will it work for a reef system of course I still need to add a skimmer.

    Hello All, I'm looking to build my own wet/dry trickle filter style sump using an old 20g aquarium. Does anybody have any plans for this? Also I'd need to build an overflow box, but that shouldn't be too hard. I can handle the overflow on my own, I believe. Call me cheap, but I'm still not to...

    I am planing to upgrade the sump in my 72 and was wondering what is the best way to install the inlet? The way i have it now there is alot of noise and i would love to bring it down as much as possible. Also i forgot what Mag i have but should i leave it submerged or should i have the tank drilled?

    I posted about a month ago about a DIY rubbermaid Wet/Dry sump I made. Well I have a 125 gallon tank with a stingray in it and my nitrates are impossible to keep in check. I do 15-20 gallon water changes almost every week and I cant get them below 30-40ppm. As you can see in the pic the water...

    My nitrates have been at 30 - 40 ppm consistently for 12 months and none of my fish appear to show any outward signs of stress from it, no illness present in the tank. I have a 100 gallon Tru-Vu Acrylic tank with a built-in sump in the rear of the tank. I am just running bioballs only in the...

    Can anyone tell me how can I convert a only fish marine tank to a reef tank? Should I clean the whole tank and setup again? Or just remove all fishes ? Any special water condition that I need to take note for reef tank? Pls help?
