    I probably should have taken this picture with my dslr but it was much quicker with my phone. I just wanted to get some general feedback on my tank. It is the first reef tank I've ever setup myself and yes I know it's too small for the fish but I'm getting a 50 gallon next month.

    Looking to see how much gfo I should start with for a 75 gallon mixed reef. I've just came off biopellets and don't want to shock the system. My sump is a 15 gallon. Am going to use a phosban 150 with a maxijet 900. I have some sps frags that are sensitive to any changes. tankjunkie

    After hours of research online and browsing, I have found that softie/LPS tanks are few and far between these days due to people wanting to keep the hard SPS corals. I have decided to make my 46gallon bow front a soft/LPS coral tank only because the softie tanks I have seen online are gorgeous...

    I have a bubble/mushroom combo rock. I am wanting to do two species specific tanks, LPS only and softie only. I was wondering what tool to use to cut the live rock in half so I can safely remove the bubble coral without cutting through the skeleton, and leave the mushrooms unharmed as well...

    Hey guys, I have a 6 gallon nano reef with a bicolor blenny and a royal dotty back and i was wondering what kind of big flashy corals i could get for a small tank! I like Kenyan Tree Corals because of they size and look or is there something easy for a small tank and a beginner like me?! :read:
