    I have a glass tank but accidentally picked up a magnet cleaner for acrylic tanks. Should I take it back to get a glass one or will it work the same?

    26 bowfront I'm slowly (stinking budget!) getting pieces together to set up my tank. Just wondering if anyone has a decent submersible heater laying around that you would be willing to part with? I have a 26g tank, so I think a 100w would work... Let me know! Thanks, Casey

    Just trying to consolidate all the threads where this is being talked about. Please chime in if you are going. We are also going to stop at preuss pets that is very close to the frag swap I believe. Here is the link to the frag swap in Lansing...

    Well my plans got changed and we used the 50 gallon for our breaded dragon. Then my wife said "why don't we just get a nano tank" :blob: :thumbup:.

    Being in Australia Acrylic is hardly used for sumps let alone tanks. I have a few questions as I am looking at moving across from Glass for my new 250Gal * Does it scratch that easily? * Is it easy to repair? * Does it look better? Cheers

    I get this brown haze of algae growing on the acrylic. It's pretty hard to scrub off, not your typical film that comes off easily. I have to scrub it pretty hard with an acylic pad to get it off, almost like coralline. It also will grow really long hairs out of the center of the spots that...

    For Sale or Trade I've recently moved to the Atlanta area and brought my custom built 220 G acrylic bow front with me. I thought I would have room for it in my new house but I neither have the room or the time to launch it. My goal is to sell it (and all the gear that goes along with it) and...

    OK I know some of you thought it was sacrilege that I tore my 450-gallon system down. Numerous issues compiled and aided in the decision. First off was the system itself. I think anyone who builds their first dream system will tell you that a lot more thought went into building it than...

    Well, I've had a "BB" tank for 2 years now, but it's only in the past month that I actually had a real BB tank. That is because (i feel) I had too much rock, poor flow patterns, and def. not enough fish, or skimming. Here was my tank at it's...

    First off, as many of you know, this is my first aquarium. Since I started setting it up in January, I have been bitten pretty hard by the reef bug and I have grown very attached to my reef inhabitants. I am extremely cognizant of trying to make sure that they are living in a comfortable...
