    Just as the title suggests, I have a 10 gallon tank sitting unused in my garage just begging to be setup. I also have a brand new JBJ 70W HQI clamp light that I have never used yet. I'm not sure what to keep or what to do with this 10 gallon. Any suggestions out there???

I was thinking about trying the plywood/glass method since it looks like it'd be sturdy, but does the cost of the stuff to seal it make the project more expensive...

    Does anyone here maintain coldwater marine tanks? Do you know of good photos of any? I'm interested in whatever might be available, whether it's from Tasmania, South Africa, NE or NW United States, Northern Europe, the Mediterranean, etc. I'm especially interested in sources of quality retail...

    Finally caught this stinker !...Hard to tell from this shot but I estimated him to be three feet long. He was stretched along the diameter of the garbage can you see in the image and was just about head-to-toe ;)

    I'm cooking about 150 pounds of rock in my garage and the circuit for the heater/powerhead tripped last night. The temperature is 62 degrees. At that temperature, would the bacteria have died?

    What is a safe rate at which to remove sand? I'm thinking 1 cup per day? I'm wanting to make my 3" deep sand bed ( which is 36"w X 18"d ) to about 1" or so after doing some research about the potential dangers of deeper sandbeds ;)

    Call me paranoid, but I'm feeling very strong about risking to make a fire in the not observed area, the basement, especially at the night. Fire alarm is good, but I prefer not to start the fire in a first place. Now it will be beneficial to one of the tanks in the basement to have the...
