    Hi im considering getting 2 of the galaxyhyro 165w leds for my 75 gallon reef. Only problem is I have no way of mounting it from my ceiling or surrounding walls because I'm not allowed since it will look bad. So my only other option would be just to sit one on top on the glass on each side of my...

    I have been buying/trading a lot of coral lately to stock up for my future build (coming soon). I have these three coral that look very similar, but have different names. I am wondering if I have the wrong ID on them, and how they should be mounted. I am trying to mount tabling acros off the...

    I am talking mainly branching SPS here. How do you mount your frags and why? I have been doing some reading lately and it seems a lot of people agree mounting them on their side is the way to go. Their point being it will encrust and grow faster with a better base. I am wanting to get...

    So I bought some corals the other day. Little note, I am very new to this hobby so I know this is a rookie mistake. But I did not know that you were supposed to take the coral off of the frag plug. So I glued the whole entire frag plug with the coral onto the live rock. Is that bad?? Is there...

    After doing some research I have decieded to mount my NPS carnation via a rubber band from the center brace on my tank. It seems to be doing well as far as health but never seemed to be able to stand up straight. I have heard they are found in the wild inverted under outcropings and in caves,my...

    I read on a thread here awhile back that if you mount an sps frag on its side it will grow faster. Has anyone ever done it? Does it work?

    I have a Juwel vision 180 and I would like to mount the T5 unit and 2 TMC Aquaray LED strips (20") above the tank because of heat problems. Are there any cheap products out there that I could use or is there some real easy way to mount them off the sides of the tank that I just can't think of...

    hello everyone I have kept freshwater tanks for a while, so I decided to make the jump into a reef tank setup. using an old 60litre/15 gallon tank, I added loads of live rock and some bleached coral as the base. Unfortunately I mixed the salt incorrectly, and as I had no hydrometer, I had no...
