    I was at menards today and they now have the rubbermaid stock tanks. That have the 50g ($56?) 75g ($69?) and 100g ($79?) I think those are the right prices. I have never noticed them before but if they have always had them I'm a idiot :) and nevermind...

    This build was actually started in August. I'll start by posting a picture of my 90 reef that has been set up almost five years. I loved this tank but it was just too small. The 90 was moved and the lower tier of rocks were taken to the LFS. No Mushrooms, Zenia, or Anthelia will be going in the...

    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...

    I started putting a 210 in the wall about 2 months ago. Last night the wife and I decided to transfer everthing from the 75 to the 210, everything looks good today. It wouldn't have been so bad, but we didn't start until 8:30pm. I didn't get to bed until about 3am. So needless to say, I'm...

    Figured I would jump on this as well since I just started to set up another tank. This is going to be a 140 gallon in wall display in my basement. At this point all I have done is biult the stud wall where the tank will be. I will post a pic tonight of the location. Mike

    ALL RIGHT As some of you might have noticed I am asking a lot of housekeeping diy questions lately... The hubby and I are trying to figure out the next steps of the tank apparently the stocking part was easy compared to the endless DIY projects out there. I think I have a handle on what we...

    hey all, I am looking for poly tanks to use as sumps, but I need suggestions. I know the rubbermaid stock tanks are great, but I didn't know if there were other brands that might be cheaper, and where to get them. I know I have seen some different types on reefcentral, but have never seen...

    My 220 in the lab has gotten terribly infested with Anemonia (those of you who have seen it will agree that this is a big understatement). This week I plan to empty the tank completely so I can start over and not let the nasty little anemones get a foothold this time. As long as I have the...

    I need ideas for a hospital tank that I have to start cycling NOW for moving in 2 months (didn't get much notice). I work in a museum, so I can put fish, liverock and anemones here while I setup and cycle main 150g tank on display. Would you ; a) buy a slightly smaller acrylic fish tank and use...

    Like I said in my other post, beginning the planning for 180 tank set up... I was looking at the acrylic tanks from www.glasscages.com, and their prices seem pretty reasonable... they are also going to be in Oklahoma City the end of April, which is only about 3 hours from me, so I wouldn't...
