    Would it be nuts to run a supplemental dsb on a new tank started with dead rock? I don't wanna wait for it to cook. Still kinda fuzzy on the cycle, but as I understand it there's organic phosphate bound in the mined rock. This will be leached into my new tank for a long time as bacteria...

  3. The THINK Tank
    I called it an HRDSB to distinguish it from an RDSB. HRDSB is a Hikk Remote Deep Sand Bed. What I am referring to is a 5G bucket setup such as this one: http://reefcentral.com/forums/showthread.php?s=&threadid=595109&perpage=25&pagenumber=1 Anybody used one or know anybody who has used one to...

    Hey all, I thought I would revisit a popular new theory on the remote DSB in such delivery methods as a 5g bucket. I have been considering re-doing my fish room a bit to make my filtration system a bit more efficient and have considered this. Now, my water volume is almost 300g so, I am not...

    I just got the green light from the Mrs. to punch a hole in the wall in the basement so I can get a larger sump going in the utility room area of the basement. I'll be utilizing the 50g tub I get from Tony. I'll be tearing down the 20g so it can be moved in the utility room as well. I...

    Is there some kind of a record for the most moves of a 180 in a short time? If so, I want put my name in the running :doh: We bought a small house on a small lake in June (a repo in need of lots of work) and sold everything living from our tank and some equip. Now we're planning on setting the...

    I have a 350gallon tank that I cannot get the phosphates under control in. I have a calcium reactor which lowers ph to about 8.2. and I have been adding Kawasser to raise ph to 8.4 trying to bind to calcium? The tank has been up for two years. We have been out of town a lot. I believe phosphate...

    Has anyone dosed Vodka, Everclear, or other ETOH (in their tank!)? I don't have a nitrate/ite test kit anymore, but fear that my algae issue (not awful, but still present) may be related to the sandbed. Ethyl alcohol can overdrive the bacterial cycle helping break down nitrates which later...

    Hey all. Hope this hasn't been answered a million times. I've searched, and came up with many threads, but none addressing my exact question. I have a 10 gal glass tank that I'm going to turn into a refugium. I need a total of 4 glass baffles, but don't know where to turn to for glass...

    With all the positive comments in the first thread, I thought I would post the details of my tank from concept to today. Tank move occured late summer of '06 and I move my other tank into it over Thanksgiving of last year. Been the best 15 months I have ever spent in a hobby. If this isnt the...

    Looking at replacing my Combination Remote DSB and Refugium with a new design. I am looking at 2 17 gallon acrylic tanks which when I get it replaced should be about the same amount of water as my current system, but it should maintain its level a lot better. First things first though, I am...

    taken from this month's Coral Magazine: this new issue of Coral Magazine had an article about Deep Sand Beds and their uses and functions. It gave a pretty rough outline of an idea but to me it sounded extremely simple and cool. I believe the aticle was by Anthony Calfo. The proposed set up...

    Hi Everyone! I ve been calling trying to find an aquarium maintenance guy to move my tank. While I was talking with a few of them a cpl of them said my sand bed does not need to be replaced. They said each time I clean my tank to syphon some out to clean it and after a yr or so I could put a bag...
