    Can you use a standard floodlight used outside in your tank if you put in a good bulb? Some of these go for very cheap (especially used). Even if you had to take the ballast and reflector out and used the floodlight as a retrofit kit, it could be very inexpensive if you just bought a $50...

    Hey Guys, This may, I'm graduating from John Carroll University in Cleveland, Ohio! Well, my parents asked me what I wanted for graduation! :D They said they would do the same for me as they did for my bro and sis...basically a few hundred dollars on a gift or gifts. I'm thinking about...

    i did some plumbing work to my refugium supply. my flow rate was a tad bit high, so i tapped off a small portion to run thru the refuge/skimmer section of my aquafuge only, and allowed the rest to dump back into the collection point for the return and uv pump (mag-9.5 and mag-5). but i didn't...

    I had a 1 inch piece of grape calerpa that became a forest in a couple months, the other night I came home to pea soup, the fuge, sump and main tank were completely green, and the calerpa was transparent, like it expelled all of its chlorophyll, I assume it went sexual ?? anyway I removed all of...

    Hey folks, I've been doing water changes of about 10gal every 2-3 weeks on my newly set up (5months) 75gal reef which only has LR, gold chromis, Yellow headeds', brittle star, clean-up crew and some ricordia. Getting ready to venture into some other inverts and need to do larger water changes...

    I have a refugium in my sump, but now that I have a Mandarin I would really like to have a refugium that wouldn't chew up the copepods and amphipods in a pump before returning the water back to the tank. I have wanted to build a HOB refugium and have been looking at various plans, tupperware...

    I just noticed last night, that we seem to have a rising population of flatworms, not so much in the main tank (20H), but lots in the HOB refugium. I know our sixline wrasse eats them, but she had to move out of the 20H into a 10G, because she wants to kill every living thing in the tank. Any...

    Greetings, Id really appreciate some input on my refugium lighting. Ive been running a 15 watt fluorescent "aquarium/plant bulb" by GE for a good while now and have seen mixed results with my macro algae growth rate. My macro was growing well, then I over pruned it I guess because it just...

    I'm posting this here, since I don't want to pay shipping on it. I'm looking for one of those dual lamp 25w incandescent fixtures that will fit a 10g tank. I don't need a full hood, just the light part. If someone has one gathering dust, I'd be glad to take it off there hands at the next...

    This afternoon I set up a AC 500 on my Minibow 7 as a HOB refugium -- totally awesome. OK for a little background -- 1st let me say I HATE POWER HEADS --- PERIOD --- no matter how small. I haven't used a power head in the last 5 or 6 tank setups I've had. They are just ugly and clutter up the...

    In my last tank a few years ago (a 15 gallon), I successfully kept a few good SPS corals and a maxima clam...has anyone else had good success with these types of animals? I just want to be sure, trying out my 15 gallon again, that I am again successful. Was I crazy for trying SPS, and was my...

    What do you all do with your undesirable creatures, you discover in your tanks? This morning we found a big, orange fleshy limpet had done away with almost all of our daughter's yellow polyps. There is only one left (of 6). We want to get the limpet out, but don't know how. It holds on to the...
