    I decided to celebrate my 10th year of having saltwater tanks by upgrading to a new 150 gallon system. This will be the 5th system I’ve started, having begun with FOWLR and my most recent system being a mixed reef. This time I’m going to try my hand at a pure SPS dominated reef running the...

    So a few days ago I was thinking to break down my jbj 28 to get a good cleaning and restart it. When I was doing this I realized the pumps were just behind a piece of plastic. So could i drill 2 holes about 8 inches up where the pumps are located and put 2 strainer bulkheads in that place. I'm...

    Hi everyone, My first post here on ReefCentral, hopefully the start of what I hope will end with a nice new reef tank! I've kept all kinds of things since I was a kid, terrariums, reptiles, all sorts of exotics, the ever-present goldfish and more recently, planted tanks. I've always wanted to...

    I have a brand new custom shallow tank for sale. I had the tank custom built and built the stand myself with the thought of having a shallow water reef that you can walk 360 around but have decided to go in a different direction. Tank is brand new and never seen salt (just tap water for...

    Well now that I am an official member I figured I would post a few pics of my shallow rimless. I will start with a "current" picture and back track to show the build process of the next few days. Right now I am battling an algae issue (what else is new right?) but in general I have found...

    Well, since I ordered my tank, Scott mentioned I may as well start the build thread. The tank is a 4'x3'x17" in starfire (3 sides) and black silicone. I ordered the basic tank and plan to do all the drilling myself as well as a CTC overflow with Bean's SAFSOS...

    i'm looking for a good way to vent humidity without a tremendous amount of work/money. I had covers on my frag tanks but i am finding it a pain in the butt to take them on and off all the time. I am also able to get the ph allot higher with the added evaporation and more kalk top off. Problem is...

    Okay, my 40 breeder has been up for a month. I finally got a refractometer and my SG pegged at 1.025 and my alkalinity at 4 to 5. I have to verify the PH is between 8.0 and 8.3 when I get home tonight, but assuming that is correct, I am ready to purchase 40# of live rock. Here is my question...
