Hey guys, so I have been wanting to piece together a new reef tank lately and was going to buy everything I need used to save some money. I was looking to setup a 40-55gal display tank with a 20 gallon sump that had a fuge and skimmer in it. Well I was searching around today and found a running...
What would be the best RODI system to maintain a 100 gallon tank? How would you set the whole thing up other than just the filter. Do you guys run hoses into buckets. Once in the buckets how does that work. Do you have valves at the bottom or do you pump water out and directly into your tank...
Good afternoon TRT! It's great to be back...I've been lurking for a while but I haven't been active since I don't have my tank anymore. I'm ready to get back into it. I'm permanently settled in my home here in south FL, so I can finally get a tank without worrying about moving.
The home I...
Hello! So I have finally chose to upgrade my tank to a 75g. I'm just not happy with my 55g reef, and want to also focus fish as well as corals. In my 55g I have a lot going on, one yellow tang, 3 clowns, 6 line wrasse, lawnmower blenny, and sand sifting star. And for corals, couple Kenya trees...
I have been looking every where trying to find a DIY or pictures of holding systems like you would see at a wholesale place. Also if their is a DIY any where that shows molti tanks being connected together.

Lets have a conversation on systems approach and theory!
I was thinking... about systems and how they applied to our tanks. It is important to approach our tanks as systems because... well they are systems. They are biotypes with interacting parts that can rarely being excluded from other...

Okay, so I am about to upgrade my lighting system in my 55 gallon reef aquarium to LED lighting. I currently have the standard T5 Bulb 4foot system and want an LED lighting system with a higher output, more blue tint, and lunar lights. Shimmer effect and timer would be neat too, but timer isnt...

We decided that we needed more space that just a few frag racks in our 265 display. We really like the 2'x4'x8" rimless tanks so we decided to set up a system based off that size tank. We debated about purchasing the glass tanks from Glasscages or building our own acrylic tanks. We decided after...
