    ok so i had a large reef tank in the past and desided to make our 12g Eclipse tank into a (mild) reef. What I mean is the easy stuff not going all out here. So the tank is re-set back up with 20lbs of live sand and 15lbs of live rock. My only question is the lighting. I found a retrofit with 2...

    I'm looking for either a power compact setup or a retrofit kit for a 20 gallon tank. I haven't measured it yet, but I think the tank is 24" wide. It's the normal sized 20 gallon. I have an Eclipse hood for it, but it's only got fluorescent capabilities right now. T5s would be cool too, but I'm...

    I'll be setting up a 3 gallon Eclipse tank. Hardware 3 gallon Eclipse Tank System No additional lighting planned at this point (Eclipse hood comes with a small florecent 6W T5 bulb which I'm hoping will be enough for some growth of algea for nutrient removal) No Stand (will be sitting on my...

    For a F.O.W.LR? I see most here seem to have larger tanks but this isn't possible for me right now, I'm all out of space! Can a 29 gallon work with some small fish and a few pounds of live rock and live sand? I'm not into corals or anything fancy, I just like watching fish. I know the fish...

    Alright, so I have a problem, not a life threatening one, but a problem nonetheless. When ever I do a water change or change the filter in my eclipse hood, silt come flying out from where the filter pad was sitting. See when the filter is in place, the silt is stationary and has equilibrated...

    The package on the light that I bought said that a glass top was necessary to cover the tank. But the problem is that water evaoprates onto the glass. Doesn't this lower the effectiveness of the light? Can the light be run w/o the glass top?

    So my tank is 26 gallons, its about 36" wide I believe, about 14"-18" tall, and however deep, 12" or whatever. Im not big on any of this termonology you guys use. I just know MH is stronger, and "better" than other stuff, and a lot of people use them with bigger tanks, and what not. Well my...
