    So I had a reef tank many years ago, a 29 gallon. I was told it would be difficult, and it was, but I managed to have a beautiful tank! Through a divorce it was broken down and put away. I am now ready to put another one together in our billiards room downstairs. I have opted with a 40 gallon...

    We have a fairly large tank at work (250g display, 50g sump) and the current caretaker is leaving for somewhere between a year and forever. I've helped a lot with the tank, especially livestock selection, aesthetics, etc, but I don't really do any of the "work" I guess. You know, just the fun...

    What's the best way to hide equipment in a small tank like my 20g? I want to get myself an internal skimmer, and would like to know if it was possible to hide it without a sump. Is this best accomplished with an overflow box? Or is there something along the lines of a cornerflo-like product I...
  13. Tank Specs
    This is a partial repost from my intro thread, but since I plan on having plenty of questions, I thought I should probably have my tank listed here. I currently have a 55 gallon tank (48"x12"x20") started in 2013 with a 1-2" live sand bed, 60-70 pounds of live rock, AI SOL Superblues x2, a...

    that you have purchased for your tank? Equipment, corals, anything! I'll start. I recently purchased a maxspect gyre xf150 for my 125G reef tank. After about two weeks, everything looks much happier than when I had my two koralia power heads. My corals seem to be flowing more and the fish are...

    So the one question I DIDN'T ask is how to add salt on the initial fill of my new tank. It's a 75 gallon with a 55 gallon sump. When the pump truck came today (yep, I'm lazy) we measured full tank and sump at 98 gallons. I added 40 cups of salt in about 45 minutes. As you can imagine, this...
