    Hi! I have had a lot of experience in freshwater but I have always loved saltwater. I was thinking about eventually converting one of my 20g tanks into a saltwater environment (nothing fancy, just a couple small fish and live rock). Nothing bigger- my other tanks are happily occupied and I...

    Hey Y'all! Got a quick question. On my 20 setup with a 5 gal sump, I am starting to see why auto top offs are so popular. My return section in the sump is maybe 3/4 gallons, so I really see the evaporation within a few days. I am planning to make a cheap ATO soon so I don't have to keep...

    So as I moved to our new house, that gave me chance to get a new aquarium. I gave up my 120 gallon, traded it and all it had in, and started to look. This was a few months ago by now, and in that time I found the store of Aquatics and Exotics here in Ohio. Bit of a drive for me, but there, I...

    I wish I would have taken before pictures so you all could see the difference but you will just have to take my word for it. I have these two different frogspawn in my tank. One never really opened a whole lot in the past 4 months. The other did till about a month ago. I looked closely at both...

    Is the Central Ky threads dead? I just moved to Lexington and I'm trying to find the best places to find equipment and stock. I'm wanting to do a 125G freshwater set up to get back into aquariums. This may not be the proper place to post this, but if there is an active thread somewhere can...

    hey guys I have 40 gallon planted tank and I would like to put in a sump system. I'm familiar with the requirements for the GPH etc, for marine systems, but I've never done one for a planted tank. What is a good size over flow box to use? How many GPH (approximately) should i be shooting for? I...

    So I've kept freshwater tanks for years, but just recently started my first saltwater tank. For testing equipment, I had the API Master Test Kit for freshwater, and those little dip sticks that worked for both freshwater and saltwater. I used the dip sticks for the cycle of my saltwater, until...

    So awhile back i asked everyone for some led options for straight led lights for a project. Well it was for a coffee table my GF bought for me. I was able to remove the white shop lights they came with and did a snake pattern with the led lights that 90ReefZilla mentioned. (Thanks again!) This...

    Hi all! New here and wanting advice. I currently have a 20 gallon freshwater tank setup with an almost 10" plec (he has quickly outgrown both a 10 gallon and now 20 gallon tank...lol), 5 neon tetras and one powder blue dwarf gourami. I have a 125 gallon tank (6' long, 22" tall, 18" wide) that...

    Hello! I'm new to saltwater (in fact I don't have a saltwater tank yet) but I've run freshwater tanks for years. I currently have a 55 gallon long (48x13x18?) and a 20 gallon tall (13x13x18?) but I'm looking to get into saltwater. I have room for one more aquarium, but it would have to be small...

    Was wondering if anyone else on this forum keeps US Native Fish? Whether Freshwater or Saltwater. I personally keep primarily freshwater US natives. I've got a 20H, another 20H, 30L, another 30L, and a 75 devoted to keeping natives and I'll soon be switching my 75 from an aggressive native tank...

    Okay, so I apologize if this is a silly question, but I need to ask it because I haven't read it anywhere else. I have an African Cichlid tank with about an inch of extra aragonite sand at the bed. This tank has been running forever now and was properly cycled from the beginning, thus I have...

    Hello all! It strikes me that I haven't shared with TRT what I'm doing with tanks these days. I don't have reefs anymore (one day I may again), but I can't be without my tanks. I'm now running 3 Fresh water planted tanks. The first is my baby work tank. This little guy is 2 gallons and...

    Hey everyone, fairly new to TRT. Looking to meet and chat with fish enthusiasts, learn more about reef systems and the like, and hopefully get some advice for a very small aquarium service I run. I look forward to meeting everyone :)

    Just kidding!! But these guys are too big for their tank and more pressingly, their "platform"... I've been debating building a new one just not sure how to go about it. Right now they have this driftwood log taking up their whole tank. It's attached to a flower pot, balancing on a paver...
