    I'm building a 26x26x20 tank for the purpose of housing a carpet and a pair of clowns. The system will be ties into my 180's sump. I'm probably going to go with a Current Outer Orbit fixture. Should I go 150 or 250? I know carpets love the light but its a pretty small tank. What ya think?

    Ok, the time has come and I can't hold on to these tanks I love any longer if I'm going to get moved to Canada. I'm going to start with selling the LR, then the fish and critters ('cause I can't catch them with the rock in the way and I don't have a large container to move anything into)...

    Ok - I've got some extras to sell, except where indicated, they work just fine, although they may be a little dirty (have some old coraline algae, etc): First off, a CPR CS100 overflow. I don't have the foam piece anymore, and there's a 1" threaded union glued to the bottom (saves you a little...

    I am probably going to be getting a 28G nanocube with the HQI light. I am debating on the setup. It will probably have SPS/LPS and a clam with a few fish. BB or a thin sand layer (I like the look of sand much better)? Keep the filter media in the sump part? Care for the acrylic type tank...

    does anyone have one of these fixtures ? http://current-usa.com/outerorbithqit5ho.html i'm looking at the 24" model. my main question would probably be, how much of a spread does that HQI bulb have ? will it be able to light up the whole width of the 24" tank ? or will the top left and right...

    Hey guys. I am just starting to put some soft corals back into what has been a fish only tank for a while now, and they aren't doing well - only partially opening, closed most of the time. sg and pH are perfect, I do weekly water changes, very light bioload (only 1 fish). The only thing I can...

    Ok, so I was actually going to title this "light my tank" ... but this morning, one of the locals posted on our local board that he just _had_ to sell his 30g Oceanic cube, and the price was too good to pass up. So rather than a standard 29g, I'm now lighting a 30g cube. Yay! I've had the...

    Ok I am finally going to make a hood for my tank. I got a 36" icecap t-5 retro with uri super actinic bulbs and a hqi 150 watt 10k metal halide. My question is can I put all of this in an enclosed box with a plexiglass bottom and a couple of the icecap fans for air flow. Will this work? And what...

    Here are a few more goodies I picked up today: Leather: coco worm: I picked up this monti as a test to see if they will survive under my lighting. I have been told it will, and been told it won't, so we shall see what happens. If it does do well, its a purple montipora and should...

How do I transfer the water or do i need to can I get the water from my local aquarium store or do I have to transport 100g's of water? Any ideas or thoughts...

    Ok, so my fixture is about 2 weeks old, so I obviously shouldnt be having any problems with it. Well today Ive noticed that the 10k MH starts flashing like a strobe light. Is this a light or ballast problem? I turn it off for about 10 minutes, then turn it back on, and its fine. Then about 20...
