Hello everyone! My name is Cooper and I'm a 17 year old senior from Altus, Ok.
I have had freshwater tanks on and off most of my life but just recently got into saltwater and I'm in need of advice. Right now I've got a 36 gallon bow front FOWLR tank setup and has been running great since early...
So I was told by someone at my LFS that I was to go FOWLR for now that I would not need any additional flow apparatuses like powerheads. Is this true? My plan is to start FOWLR and then go coral eventually, so then I would buy powerheads and such at that time. However, I thought you still...
Still trying to get the tank ready.. so I have some time to work this out, but I have some livestock questions...
Ok Build is:
80 Lbs live sand
3 Hydor Koralia Nano Aquarium Circulation Pump 425 GPH
Reef Octopus Classic 90 HOB
40 lbs Live Rock
30 Lbs base Rock
You guys were super helpful on my last post, and I've done some searching and reading and couldn't find what I was looking for, exactly.
Specific Gravity, I did a 20% water change last night; and started thinking about the hydrometer I'm using... and realized I might have messed up my salinity...
I hate being a noob at anything, but with this hobby I don't want to mess it up.
I currently have a 75 gallon tank starting a cycle, and I've nothing to do with it except some water changes and waiting... so of course I want to jump into what critters to put in.
First the set up, as I'm sure...
As seen in the pics my tank is drilled in the back. Has Coast to coast overflows.
I have a 75 gal im going to use as the sump.
I am a bit confused on how the sump is actually going to be plumbed tbh
Can anyone provide any help on this?
I am in the process of setting up a 4ft 120 tank with a 40 gallon sump. I have planned to make if a FOWLR tank with some artificial coral that I will be making myself (I saw several videos on this and thought it would be a fun project).
I am not at the point yet where I will be stocking the...
Good morning fellow reefers!
I am curious as to whether or not I am fully stocked or if there is room for another fish or two. Possibly a small puffer.
I have a 40 gallon breeder with overflow, 10 gallon sump/refugium setup which was FOWLR intended which has since turned into a "mixed" tank...
I have been keeping freshwater fish and planted tanks for years but am new to the saltwater hobby. In an attempt to take it slow, I bought a second-hand 28 gallon cube several months ago and added a clownfish and a goby, then realized I would need a lighting upgrade to try corals (the...
Hi All! :)
I have just set up a FOWLR system, and was wondering, if I wanted to get corals, which species are the best? And what equipment do I need to make a FOWLR system a Reef?
(Pease have a look at my other thread :) )
I've been running my 92g corner reef tank for 15 years, except for 2 years when I lost everything in a power outage and then reset it as a Seahorse tank.
Now, few BTA have taken over the entire tank & Actually looked really cool, but lately they are not doing great.
So, I'm thinking of changing...

TANK IS UP AND RUNNING!
Been doing research but confused on some things for sure. The only thing I've purchased so far is the 75 gallon tank from petsmart (no...

Sorry if this is in the wrong section, please move it if needed. Being my first post I feel a little back ground is in order, I've had my green spotted puffer for around 2 years (it's my first fish tank) without any major problems except for keeping nitrate under control.
A week ago I bought a...
Here is just a quick glimpse into me and my life. I am a father of two wonderful teenagers and have recently gotten engaged to the most amazing woman in the world. I currently have two 10 gallon aquariums for my kids rooms and one 49 gallon cichlid aquarium. My newest endeavor is my...
Hey guys I'm looking for a new HOB skimmer for my tank and it's come down to these two. I have a 40 gallon long (48x13x17) tank with an ocellaris clownfish, and a pajama cardinalfish. In the future, it's going to be a heavily stocked tank. It's a really tough decision to make because everyone...
