    I am selling off my 125 gallon acryllic reef tank, cherry wood stand and canopy, all of the livestock, live rock, and all hardware. I am trying to sell it as a whole system but if I don't get any takers, I'll start parting it out. In fact, if it doesn't sell, I'd be willing to host the September...

    earlier today i added 10lbs of live sand to the tank. ever since the tank has been REALLY cloudy. how long will it take to clear up? its a 125g tank so i didnt think it would be that bad to add some extra sand. i really dont want to hook back up the filters because they tend to suck up...

    Does anyone know what this leafy macroalgae is that keeps spreading in my tank? It's like one big leaf, and it ripples out over everything. One piece covered an entire rock. If you need pics I can get some later. Thanks

    Greetings all! Brand spanking new to the Saltwater world after having kept tropical freshwater off and on or many years. I just purchased an AGA 125 gallon "reef ready sort-of" used tank that is 72"x18"x22". The reason I say "sort-of" is that the holes are drilled (2 in each back corner...
