    Hi, I bought a used 125 gallon and was told to reseal it by the guy I bought it from. I got into the process and discovered the front glass seems separated from the side glass on the left side. I though maybe I would have to rebuild the tank or at least remove the front glass and reattach it. As...

    Decided to redo a nano build I had. Nothing was wrong with the prior tank, but I wanted to do things differently. My Nano before I pulled the coral and rock and put in my main tank. As you can see everything was just....there. I hated seeing a heater, skimmer and thermometer in the tank...

    Hello guys I am having trouble thinking of a solution of what to do to rebuild my 75g FOWLR. I want to totally strip down that tank and rebuild it as a reef tank, but I do not know where to put my fish. I do have a 72g bow front that is empty but don't know how I should set it up to store the...

    OK... I do not think I have ever done a real build thread ... since this is a re-build, I guess it is a build. Well, backstory: Moved from DC to Asheville NC and everything that could go wrong did. So I have to start over. I have all (most) of my equipment ready so where we go. Previously, I...

    So I have decided to completely overhaul my nano set up. I hadn't planned on this complete renovation, however when I placed some new purchases in the holding tank I was keeping all my livestock in, I introduced some type of disease. Within a few days of being gone from the house I had lost all...

    Hi, I have recently had a major disaster with my 90L nano tank. I had the set up since January and it was doing great. It wasnt overstocked (just 2 clownfish, few softies, an awesome torch, inverts etc) and the all levels had been fine, 10% water changes weekly,, No problems!! (so it seemed)...

    My wife has decided that it's time to replace the carpet in the house so I spent all of yesterday tearing down the 90gal reef and moving the inhabitants into Rubbermaid containers. My intention was to have it all moved back into the 90gal in a different room sometime today, but after stressing...

    So after much debate I decided to tear down my 90 gallon. The wife kid and I moved about a year ago or so and in the joys of moving everything got tore down and thrown back. Didn't like it but way more important things to do with getting settled and such. Now almost 80% settled I decided to tear...

    Ok I'm not totally tearing the tank apart, it is fully cycled tank. Right now my volitan lion is in it, before I get flamed I had a 55g spring a leak so I had to put him in something while I rebuilt his tank. Now his tank is recycled and ready to go I have this 37g tank to play with. The lights...

    I have been building up a 150 Gallon system for some time now, and I am at a crossroads. The tank is a 150G tank 31 inches tall with about a 50 gallon sump under it. I got a stand with the tank (bought them both used). More on the stand in a bit... The tank currently is being circulated...

    Ok, about every April I get an itch to do a tank build... most of the time (because of the Mrs and money) it turns out to be a rebuild of my existing 65g. And guess what, I scratched! (again) So, in May '09 I had some rechargeable batteries "introduced" into the tank while I was away...

    Here we go. Putting in a new 55g in place of the current one. This one has a CLS with a pan world px50-x (1110gph). My return is a mag 5 and I'll also have 2 koralia k3's in the the display. The stand kinda sucks with this tank. It's limiting me to a 10g sump, but I'll make due. The...

    OK, drilling the final holes for my 55g rebuild tonight. Here's what I'm doing. 38" x 6" x 4.5" calfo-style overflow with 3x 1" bulkheads. 2 k3's mounted next to the overflow on both sides. Panworld px50-x (1110gph) CLS. 1.5" drain, 2x 1" returns that split for a total of 4x 1" returns in...
