    OK - I have made up my mind. I am going to resurrect the 58G tank. I tried to sell it and I heard every story in the book why people cant buy it after they agreed to. It has to be a sign. Plus I have most of everything so it wont cost nearly as much as a larger new tank. SO! Here is what I...

    On an impulse I bought a new tank. I probably won't be modding it at all. So it will be skimmerless. I'm leaning towards getting a Jawfish or two for the tank so it has a 3' DSB. I'll be using live rock from my main tank and seeding the DSB with sand from another tank. Not much to look at now...

    I am kicking myself again. With the loss of 5 fish and the total being over $500, I am frusturated at myself for not having a solution to prevent heater misfunction. So I am looking for a temp controlller, I would prefer a double unit for heater and chiller. Anyone have one laying around that...

    does anybody know if the 10 gallon tanks from wal-mart are tempered. It came in a 10 gallon kit. I can't find it on their web site. I need to drill a 5/8" hole for my auto top off system using the kent float valve. I'd rather no drill it, but I want a gravity fed top-off, and there aren't any...

    I just got a ranco dual stage temp controller and was looking for some advise on where to eep the settings for it. Right now I have the cool side set at 1dif 79 degrees and the heat side set at 1dif 77 degrees. I was wondering if I could set it at cool 1dif 79 and heat 1dif 78 and have it work...

    My rock is a very light green. Probably related to phosphates, right? It is not causing algae growth...not on the rock, nor on the glass or anywhere. I recently read that a slightly low Ca level will leave the proper Ca level in the tank but will not grow coralline algae on rocks or glass...

    So getting to the stage where I need to get a heater for the 220 so I can get it going. Needs to be able to heat a total water volume of about 300g. I am thinking that titanium will be the way to go, unless anyone can tell me otherwise. Any ideas on wattage and/or brand, single versus...

    Most of you have heard me talk about it before but I have never posted any pics. At our church in Hopkins I setup and maintain a reef tank. I upgraded it 2 weeks ago from a 72g bowfront to the 110g tank Ryan ( Seamonkey ) posted for sale recently. The 72g had been setup for about 2 years...
