    I've decided to build a frag tank, at least 48 long by 24 front to back. Willing to go up to 96 by 24. I'm shopping for a tank and lights at the moment so if you have either or both and would be willing to sell or trade please let me know.

    Alright, I asked this on the other site. No one was too positive, and I only had a couple responses. I have a 190g, thats only 20" tall. I want this in the extra bedroom we have in our house, rather than our converted garage, which is now another extra room. The side bedroom is lifted off the...

    So I had this little mishap with some brass fittings when I set up my latest tank a few months ago (long story, don't ask). Anyway, the fittings were quickly removed and everything in the tank is doing well (except my brand new anemone but that's in a different post). I have been running the...

    I am in the middle of planning my closed loop on a 75g and could use some advice. The pump I am looking at is either the Sequence Snapper or Dart. Which would be the better choice for the 75g? Also, how many, what size and where should the holes go for a closed loop in a 75g? Keep in mind my...

    Okay, well hopefully it will be okay to post my build hear even if it is a freshy tank. I just need to take a break from salt for awhile and this is the best way I see. On top of that some members have asked me to put some pics up, so I am happily doing so. My nightmare mess in the garage and...

    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 have a 75 gallon reef tank and 40 gallon sump with 2 175 W MH. The temp is slowly getting out of hand. It ranges from 81-83 when the lights are on. I get around 3 hrs of MH light before the Controller turns the light off at 83. I would like to keep the tank at 79 or 80 and get 8 hours of...

    I have some 1/4" acrylic and I would like to cut it. Will a regular circular saw work? Does it need a specific blade?
