  1. Tank Specs
    So I got a price qoute on a 70 gallon tech tank with stand for $865 from my lfs. Before I take the plunge has anybody had any bad experiences with them? I've researched quite a bit and most people seem to really like them and I haven't found any complaints. This price also seems to be fairly...

    Tahatian (spelling) LR for $5.00 a lb. Or Fiji LR for $4.50 a lb. I dont really care about the price---which is actually better for a reef?

    Well as some of you may know I had quite the move back to Jax. The day I moved back my 20L broke and I ended up keeping 35+ coral pieces in a rubbermaid while looking for a replacement. I ended up going with a 45g Tech in cherry. It has about 60lbs of Fiji LR, and 35-40lbs of sand. Lighting is a...

    Well I got a 55 gallon tank this weekend from a guy that had used it for a freshwater tank. Everything was pretty dirty and needed some cleaning up but nothing too bad. It had a bunch of stuff with it but I am only using the tank and the stand. Here is the tank and stand when I got them.

    Is this xenia getting stung by the bubble next to it or is something else getting at it? It's all white on the side near the bubble. I hope the picture shows well enough to help. Thanks. PS - I cant seem to get my image size small enough to fit the format. Thanks anyway.

Yes, the...

    Okay does this stuff need to cure like live rock or can you clean it real good and put it in the tank? I am thinking of getting alot of base rock and mixing with some live rock. I know eventually the base will turn live. I mean lets face it, I can't afford 200lbs plus of the live rock. Even...

    This is a plant that has grown out of a piece of Fiji LR. It has grown from a small little plant to almost 16 inches now in 3 months. I had the LR "cooking" for over a year. I guess the plant was waiting for some light.... Any thoughts?? :read:

    i know people use silica sand and say its fine, but others say not to use it and agronite is better. i know agronite can work as a buffer for ph, and silica wont. how big of a deal is that? will the lr act as a buffer also? today is the day i want to drain my tank, put it on the new stand...
