    Hello Reefers, I have explained before that I just got back into reef tanks again after about a 10 yr absence. I once won Tank of the month for December 2005, seems so long ago, lol. I'm happy to say I'm back at it again and I have finally put water into my tank to start my cycle. Some have...

    HI, I have a 55g FOWLR and the tank has been running fine for a long time and the skimmer was just fine but i decided to add carbon just to clean out any impurities.

    I decided to come back to TRT because my local reef forum was rather inactive. Thought I'd start off by posting some pics of a recent DIY I did when I came home from deployment. Took me about two weeks off and on. Used base rock, egg crate, PVC and fiberglass resin. All comments welcome!

Lets start with how the setup is, I have a 75g tank with a 25g sump, my stand has a thin 1/8" mdf/plywood board on the bottom and my floor...

    Ok, so I decided to try this foam and rock wall idea that I keep seeing here and there. I did a lot of research and some people said to use the black pond foam because it's better and safer. Both are inert after curing, the black pond foam just doesn't need to be covered in a protectant (i.e...
