    Happy Friday, everyone! So I keep seeing the general consensus for painting the back of one's DT is Krylon Fusion. After many stops at hardware stores and hobby shops, getting angrier and sweatier after each one not having it, I'm convinced that this stuff does not exist. Has it been...

    I have the Standard 55 gallon rectangle tank. I'm interested in covering the background in order to hide the overflow box and protein skimmer etc. I like how most people paint the background blue, but I'm not trying to get into all that lol. Is there an easier alternative? I know you can by cut...

    I saw these in Lowes and looked, they are made of HDPE, so is there any reason I couldn't use them for storing my water? Most likely I would paint them black with Krylon Fusion just to make sure I didn't grab the wrong one when I needed them. I really like the pour spout they have. It would...

    For just under a year, I've been stalking the forums to learn as much as possible before building my first reef tank. What began as a 72G bow has been revised to a 30g nano after learning of a job change that will move me across the country. I just finished the tank and stand two weeks ago, so I...
