    I currently have a 125 gal tank with 3 emperor 400's running in my fish only tank. no reef tanks in hawaii. I have decided I want to move to better filtration and I was wondering what size wet/dry I should get. specifically dimensions or gallon size of the bi-ball container. I know the sump can...

    I have not the slightest clue on the safest way to move my tank 100 miles from where i live now. I need some advice from people that have moved there tanks before, i'm really nervous about this but I have about a month before I move to prepare. -Deuter:read:

    I'm curious as to how much water should have to be topped off weekly for different size tanks.... does it depend on how much water agitation there is andthe type of equipment?

    Why does the water in my sump lower everyday, its not letting my skimmer function properly (euroreef rs 100), is it because im using a brute container with one chamber, and the skimmer and return pump are both in the same container? Help is appreciated thanks.

    Any and all reccomendations would be appreciated! Tank (125 gallon) has been running for over a year now, but I have always struggled with higher than normal nitrate levels. I think the cause of this is the fact that I went with a mixture of crushed coral and sand bed. It is probably a 3"...

    I'm not sure how many of you all are going to this but, I just signed my wife and I up to go. If any of you all are interested in my possibly picking something up while we are there I might be able to make some room for a few extra additions in a cooler =). Just figured I would ask. We are...

    Hi everyone. I wanted to take a minute to post the details of my new nano build. I'm working on an Oceanic 29BC to replace the 20H I was keeping as part of the nano build off. The 20H was supposed to become a seahorse tank but continual temperature issues have forced me to abandon the project. I...

    So those cute little clownfish we all have are they "Cute Little Angels" or "Devils in Disguise"?

    Why does the the return section of the sump seem to have more water loss due to evaporation? It looks like mine is on the path of needing to be topped off every 2.5 days before gets too close to the pumps intake.
  14. Reef Build-Off 2007
    Hi all. At first I wasn't going to join the nano build-off, but decided late in the game to join in. I have some of my initial build pics, but not all so I'm hoping it won't count too much against me. I just couldn't resist the build off. So as the title suggests, my tank is a 20 gallon high...
  15. Reef Build-Off 2007
    I think I’ll play along with the build-off as well. I have ordered a custom Oceanic tank, and while I’m currently waiting for it (and wondering if it will ever show up), I have been keeping busy with my current set-up and planning for the new one. If you look at my few other posts on this board...

    Well... I found a deal I couldn't refuse on a used 150 gallon tank. It's six feet long, with nice stand/canopy, and home-made sump. The lights that are coming with it aren't that great...but I've worked out a deal with Rob to trade + a bit of $$ my 3 ft VHOs with his old 4ft VHOs .... and...

    I am curious what filtration options there are for a nano tank. I am setting up 12g Aquapod and I dont have any filtration on it. I notice that the back could fit a filter pad or something or maybe a bag of activate carbon. What do you people do?
