    We've been talking about getting a dog and we ran into one at Petsmart today. We fell in love with it and have been looking online at rescue societies for one. Anyone here own one? Ever have? Ever will? What are the pro's and con's? What are the 'gotchas' I should know before making a decision...

    I was spending time enjoying my tank over the weekend, watching the tangs swim gracefully through the caves and openings of my 180 gallon SPS dominate reef, enjoying the coloration of the corals, and all in all feeling pretty good about the small slice of the ocean that I was watching which...

    I'm trying to find a few colonies of table top acroporia. I've been searching for awhile now, and have not seen acros designated as table tops (basically I'm looking for those species that tend to have a plating shape like a monti cap, but put up the finger projections of typicall acro colonies...

    So things in the ocean are apparently WAY worse than we thought: http://www.cbsnews.com/stories/2006/11/02/health/webmd/main2147223.shtml I know political discussions aren't allowed, but I do not believe this is political, I think it is an issue that at least threatens the hobby we love, no...

  9. Substrate Free Tank Husbandry (Bare bottomed)
    I'm thinking about selling my 120. Having three big tanks is just too much, and none of them are really getting the attention they deserve. If any Floridians are interested, here are the specs (if the tank is sold off in parts, the fish, coral and live rock would have to be sold first)...

    Ok, the madness begins. I am drilling the 100g Thursday or friday and prepping for a BB SPS tank. I want this thing clean (my CLS will strip the paint off a Buick) so i need a good suggestion on a good skimmer for this thing. so far i have done turbofloaters, remora, and a few no name customs...

    After years of telling people that polyp extension was not always a function of feeding, you finally got some backup. http://www.advancedaquarist.com/2006/6/aafeature2

    I'm trying to do away with some high energy users.(uneeded pumps) I would like to run a manifold off my return line to go to my UV,Chiller, Calcium reactor. I would like to pipe some of my over flow water direct to my skimmer. Does anyone have any pics of such a set up? If you do could you...

    Hi Everyone, I am new to the TRT forum, just came over here from Reef Central. I am planning to setup 75 Gallon reef tank with a new filtration system that I've testing for about a year. I have encounter a lots negative comments from people at Reef Central when the new idea was presented, so...

    I now have two SPS frags, compliments of skeety and a new small colony. All acros. Is it normal for them to be brown with small tenticles out? Never knew they had these?? The one I bought is brown in comparion to the purple tips with yelowish body I saw in the picture. Tips still purle...

    I know I know, we don't use filters anymore for our tanks. the LR and the sand do that for us. I am a pool and spa guy and I know some people use DE (Diatomasus Earth) for polishing their water. But we also use sand filters in pools and spas. This is about 50 to 200 pounds of sand that the...

    :bawling: Tom probably sensed this already but there was a stirring in the BMW universe and a pristine 328is with gorgeous 18 inch Manta Ray wheels, new brakes and Bilsteins and a killer stereo has perished. My son went to sleep and his mom borrowed the keys and turned the geometry of his...

    Anybody still use them? Ive read quit a bit about them at garf.org. They seem to have good results with them. Would they be a cheap alternitive for a shallow grow out tank, 12'' or so? For coraline algae or soft coral. I want to start making agrocrete L/R and fragging softies in shallow vats...
