    Hey Reefers, I know the age old question between acrylic and glass has been driven into the sand. Pros and cons I’m sure have been discussed thoroughly and obviously it will always come down to opinion and preference. I was thinking it would be interesting to hear everyone’s preference. I...

    Forgive this potentially dumb question, but from what I read, acrylic tanks can scratch quite easily. also from what I read its a pain to fix them on the inside of the aquarium and they are easily caused while cleaning algae. So would it be possible to put a thin sheet of glass on the inside...

    I am thinking about building my next tank. I have a friend with a glass business so I am thinking it may be a cost savings over buying a commercial made tank. Of course, I have many questions, so I welcome any input from those who have done this before. Considering a 150g.....60x24x24 Is...

    I just discovered a bubble INSIDE my new custom made 220 gallon tank walls. I have had the tank up and running for almost a month now and I am concerned about potential long term problems (such as the tank exploding). I am going to take this up with the manufacturer, however I am dubious of...

    What causes green dust algae? On the back glass it is everywhere. It would be on all of my glass if I did not scrape it. Right now my nitrates are 40ppm and phosphates .002 with a hanna checker. The tank is almost a year old. I was also thinking about adding a biopellet reactor to get the...

Now, I'm fine for space here, but what I worried about is weather the glass of the shelf will hold the aquarium. factors: 1) I reckon the tank will weigh...

    I pulled the canopy off my glass 50 yesterday to find that the center plastic frame was splitting and when I eyeballed the front glass from the side I could see it bulging out in the center. :freak: My first thoughts were to check craigslist and :rimshot: there happened to be a guy selling a 55...

    So I came home today and I have a ton of small white things on my glass. They move a little and everything so I am pretty sure they are alive. Does anyone have any idea what they could possibly be ?

    While working at the LFS one of our clients hired me to tear down his 200g marineland deep dimension tank with starphire glass. The tank was in great shape minus a couple scratches and a scuff that happened during transit. For my efforts I was rewarded with the tank/stand/sump to take home and...
