    I previously owned a 30gallon bio cube and want to start another salt water aquarium. I want to do a proper system with a sump and all this time. What size system would you recommend and any other information would be appreciated. Thank you!

    Good Morning Reefers: I originally set up a 20 gallon quarantine tank for introducing new fish into my display. It was fine for the pair of clowns and the Bangaii Cardinals I just moved over, but I am ready to adopt my next fish. I have been going back and forth on this for a couple of...

    I've heard many different things. But do fish grow to their tank? I have my own thoughts but I seriously wanna know. Like if you get them when there little enough won't they stop growing?

    Hello all! I have had 2 Banggai Cardinalfish in my tank for about a month and a half now. When I bought them they were the same size, but now there is a huge size difference. They both eat regularly: I feed flakes every morning and PE Mysis Shrimp every other day. Is there a reason that one is...

    I was wondering if anyone could shed some light on acros and other sps corals for me. I'm thinking about setting up an aquarium that has just sps corals in it. I will want to have some soft corals also but I know people that have amazing sps aquariums don't have any or very little soft corals in...

    Hey Folks! I made a thing. I was always looking at aquarium size charts and wondering the sizes and shapes of aquariums relative to my own (just to get a visual). So I made a chart. I think I included all of the most common sized aquariums. Just thought I'd share! Let me know if I've messed...

    So I have a 40 gallon tank with a cleaner shrimp, brain coral, sebae anemone, and a Percival clown fish. I have been wanting to get a queen Angel fish since I started. Most places say the queen Angel fish requires a larger size tank(120gallons-150gallons). My LEGS has had the queen angel fish as...

    Hello, I have raised freshwater tanks before, and want to get into saltwater. I would like to start with a FOWLR initially, and over time make it a reef tank. My initial question is what size tank that I should start with? I have been reading the different forums, and visiting pet stores...

    I'm almost done building my 109 g garage grow out tank. It's made of plywood and fiberglass. The water area is about 3' x 5' x 15". It will have a 2" foam board lining on the outside so it's basically insulated like a cooler and will hold temp a lot better than a tank for viewing purposes. It...

    As the title says. Right know I only have a 15 gallon QT tank, it's used for both fresh and salt. I think I need one QT for fresh and salt. My biggest fear is that I will have an ich out break out of no where in my reef tank. If that happend I would not have a tank big enough to put all my fish...

    So with the schooling half way over I need to think of future planning. Specifically living and where to keep the tank. Next year I'm moving into a dorm with down at campus but unfortunately I cant stay during the holidays. this means I don't wanna tear down a 30g tank plus sump 4 times a year...

    Will a tail spot and a midas be good in a 40gb? It does sound kind of small, but these fish swim at different levels right? I have a bad hair algae prob., and wanted to get something to help keep it under control. I really like the midas but then I heard that the tail spot was really good with...

    Hi, I have an alcove in my house that is kinda waste of space. I'm considering having closed/built in (floor to ceiling) with cabinets and an aquarium. The max width (front to back) is 34'' and length is 40'' (side to side). I'd like to max out the tank size width/length for reef purpose (not...

    What would be a good heater for a water volume of about 145-150g? Im getting a 125g with a 30g sump. Also how many watts would I need? Im using 2 with a controller for my 55g w/ sump and they are 300 watts.
