    This is the general posting I created. I can gather more information for you if you wish. My family and I are moving and the marine system can't go with us. :bawling: I'll take reasonable offers for the entire setup. I would prefer not to part it out, but can if there are no other options...
  2. The THINK Tank
    I'm a long time lurker on TRT, almost 5 years now, and have become intrigued with aquaponics. For those not familiar with aquaponics, it is the combination of hydroponics and aquaculture. The fish are used to produce the nutrients needed to grow the crops in the hydroponics operation.The plants...

    (Moderators, please throw this post into whatever category you see fit if this is the wrong place, or if you think it will get more traffic somewhere else.) I have not had a tank up and running for over 10 years! I used to be VERY much into the reef keeping hobby. In fact in my first house I...
  4. Rochester Minnesota Marine Aquarium Club (RMMAC)
    I have some extra items from a lot of aquarium stuff I bought. The guy wasn't willing to sell separate because his wife said it all needed to go :). These are just the things I have no need for. I'm not sure if anyone here would be interested but figured I'd post just in case. I did clean and...

    Hi there! New to this forum and new to salt. I've done freshwater for 30 years so have "limited" knowledge on that, but nil on saltwater. I have a GREAT small mom and pop saltwater store near me where everyone is extremely helpful (and they don't push anything!), but I figured I'd ask some...

    I'm thinking of starting a 5.5 gallon pico tank and am making a custom sump and I have seen mini protein skimmers but I'm wondering if it is necessary to have a protein skimmer for a 5 gallon :banana:

Where does everyone get there filters? I'm gona need new ones ASAP. My tds from my tap is 225. Ro...

    Hey guys. I have the refurbished Spectrapure 5-stage RO/DI system and was wondering exactly when I should think about replacing its filters. I only have a 30 gallon tank and doing ~25% water changes weekly, so I wouldn't say that I was overly using the RO/DI system. Do I replace the filters...

    I am hearing that a canister or hang on back are nothing but a factory for nitrates, is this true? I just did a water change with RO water and my nitrates were fine when the tank was off and now that my tank is back on my water is off the charts with nitrates. So I am wondering should I loose...

    Ok, so I removed my canister filter from my system because of all the research saying that I could/would cause high nitrates and phosphates if not cleaned every few days. I went with a sump instead. I have three chambers in my sump: settling area where half of my water drained from my DT enters...

    I guess I haven't been cleaning my filter good enough during water changes. My nitrates are always a little bit high and I'm guessing its due to not getting the filter clean enough. I have an aqua clear 110 hang on filter. I guess my question is how should I be cleaning it during water changes...

    I have just bought my first tank. I have had freshwater fish before but this is my first attempt at saltwater. I have a 75 gallon tank and that is as far as I have gotten .. My plan is to keep things simple as far as fish go until i can get the tank done right so i do not waste a lot of money on...

    I was just reading up on UV sterolizers and came across this filter. Its apparently new and as I am just getting back into the hobby again after 10 years, I am very interested in this and was wondering if any of you have tried it and if so what are your thoughts on it. Here is the link...

    Hello, First, let me know say that I am super excited to get started w/ this hobby and I have been eagerly researching and lurking behind the scenes of this forum (and others) for a while.
