    I had a 10g fish tank when I was kid. It became a gold fish tank after much neglect and tragedy. Now that I'm an adult with a 16 month old daughter that loves fish, I felt it was time to make amends for my irresponsible youth. After spending a several weeks reading posts, my head is saturated...

    So my GF and I plan on purchasing a house in June. She already gave me the ok to build a tank as a room divider between the Kitchen/Dining room and Family room. My question after doing research is if I'm not building it on a concrete slab how big can I go before needing to reinforce the floor...

    Hey guys, Thought it would be a good idea to jump n here with the "Big Boys" and share my newest acquisition, my 700 Gallon FOWLR. A little back story, for over 15 years I had a 180 gallon tank and was happy as a lark. Then one day I felt the itch to rebuild my aging stand for convenience...

    Everyone, Working on a new equipment list for a 400G system (240+90+70g sump). I really wanted this skimmer but for 1400 its really intimidating. Not very many skimmer lines go above 300g so should I consider the skimmer rating for only the Display tank water volume since thats only what has...
