  2. DIY Forum
    Ok guys I thought I would share how I turned simple Aquaclear filter into a HOB refugium. First a word about the Aquaclear. As a HOB filter it works well but many DIYers have come up with dozens of ways to modify these little gems into a refugium. Despite how you feel about refugiums, you cant...

    In the big box of filters etc from over the years I have an Emperor 400 that has been parted out and is essentually only a shell. I was considering converting it into a HOB fuge. If I put an internal pump in my HOB skimmer I can port water into the emperor case w/o puttin anymore equipment...

    Anyone want to disclose what their monthly budget is for their tanks? I'm interested in ongoing maintenance, upkeep, and fun once the system is established and stocked. I have a 125 and a 55 that I have been monitoring my spending on since March. Sometimes it is depressing what I spend, other...
  6. Tank Specs
    Alright so I should lay out what we got instead of just harassing people. There's the 75 gallon, about 15g sump. Well, it's not really a sump I guess, just a fuge with a place to put the skimmer. The 75 has about 100 lbs of LR (about...), corner drilled to the under stand fuge. The fuge is...
  7. Lighting
    I have a 48" unit with 2 150w bulbs. I replaced bulbs about a month ago. Everything seemed fine after I changed the bulbs, but recently I noticed that one side of the tank is much brighter than the other (and, one bulb is brighter than the other). What's wrong? I just swapped the bulbs...

    Hi ho :wavey: - I want to put an in-tank refugium in my 34 gal. system - any recommendations? I want to use it for a place to help little pod-like creatures grow to feed my mandarins, and for a safe brooding place (my mandarin pair and clown pair are both begining their mating behaviors so I...

    Hi, I have a nano in the nano build off and have spent this week modding an Aquaclear 110 into a hob fuge....Why? Heck if I know...seems people like fuges. So as you can see I'm a newb. SO guys and gals of TRT (I can use that term...as my son reminds me...I'm a "granoldie" LOL) So, why am I...

  14. Substrate Free Tank Husbandry (Bare bottomed)
    Hi everyone. A couple months ago I moved a long way and when I set up my tank again I decided that I liked the bare bottom look. Also, moving sand is a huge PITA and if I'm moving periodically (which is very possible, part of the reason why I have a nano in the first place) then the easier the...
  15. Non Coral Dominated Systems
    Well as most of you know I'm a reefer and just ran across a good deal on a 90 gallon wavefront tank. It will house a red volitan lion with a couple of butterflies and a dwarf angel or two that can't be kept safely on a reef. My question is : what can I do other than live rock???? I have a...

    My bubble tip disappeared for a month or so, then I finally found it behind a rock. It's been looking pretty unhealthy for a while and I was wondering if it will regenerate or eventually completely die.

    Ok, I have the plexi cut and I have a 30gallon long to work with. I am about to build my fuge/sump. I have chosen to go with this design. Does anyone see anything wrong with it? or anything I could make better?

    Ok, so my superskimmer makes WAY too many bubbles, its ridiculous. So I was going to buy a 12" HOB Refugium where the skimmed water can go to, then trickle into the fish tank. The only ones I saw even close to nice enough are the CPR ones, which end on ebay for about $70 dlvd. Then there are...

    My arm is tired from scrubbing the bottom and doing a nice water change today,who out there cleans the bottom of there tank?:beer:

    OK, small ammendment to my plans. I was going to run a skimmer off the built in overflow, then just go straight into the tank. Well, thats going to change I think. After running the superskimmer in my 2 tanks, I cant stand the microbubbles, and I cant prevent them. So I MIGHT relocate the...
