low light tank

  1. General Reef Discussion
    I have had a couple of small threads on pseudocorynactis through the years and am finally considering a dedicated tank to them. Much of what I know at this point is that they are always in the corners or under rocks. They tend to stay were pods will have a path as well. I currently have...

    I've loved this tank, but I really think it's time for it to come down. The reason I'm taking it down will be to move my current 125G SPS tank into this tank. The 180 is a Reef Ready tank where the 125 is not. Humidity in my apartment is out of control, the heat is rediculus and...

    Well this has been a fun day. I moved my shrimp to a 'fuge tank while waiting for her to release her eggs. should have happened last night, at least so I thought. She was being held in a contianer that allowed water flow, but kept her in easy reach. I holds onto the side of the tank with suction...

    I really haven't done much research on keeping corals. I didn't plan on getting coral for at least a few more months. A friend just gave me some really small frags today of a green star polyp, spotted mushroom, and yellow sand polyp. My first question is will they survive in just regular...

    My kids want to set back up at least one of the FW tanks. In the past I have kept these as plain ol' community tanks, nothing fancy with just a few low-light plants. My kids like the African frogs, neon tetras, the usual community-tank fish but I really developed an interest in the planted...

    Hi everyone, I'm fairly new to this hobby and just got myself a 90 Gallon tank (three months ago). I would like to eventually have a few clams and some of the hard corals that require a high level of lighting. Here is the question: I currently have a JBJ 2x96watt, which is fine for my...
