    My stand for my 75 is almost complete, I have the MH lighting I purchased from Joe hung from the ceiling. I have the overflow kit from glass-holes.com (still have to drill) I also just got the parts for doing the flyguy rocklift. So my question is once I drill the tank, put together my...

    Has anyone ever used any of the moon sand. I took out a rook out of my seahorse tank and the bottom of the rock had turned black. WHATS UP???? Is this toxic ,chemical reaction or what is happening? I'm going to take this junk out of it. The bad part is it is in the 10gal. tank to. It is full of...

    Well, I've got a 55g tank sitting empty on a stand, but since I've never kept saltwater fish before, I thought I'd invest minimal cash at the outset and see how things go and try out some ideas before I go whole hog and buy the gear for the 55 and do up a sump, etc. So, I decided to throw my...

    I'm still working through some planning on my 55g tank (will probably still be working on planning for a while), and while I was at the LFS the whimsical side of me caught a castle and various other structures. Is there a detriment to putting a "dead" rock item like a castle, pirate ship...

    Hey guys, I'm doing somewhat of an overhaul of my tank. All of the corals and fish are fine, the water params are fine, its just that towards the back in the bottom, the sand doesnt get sifted very much and its starting to look like brown dirt. I got a diamond goby yesterday, and he started...

    I would like to obtain a pound of black sand. I just got a teeny tiny eclipse setup and think black sand would look marvy in it. Anyone got a pound or so to part with? What would you want for it?

    Getting close to adding sand to my new 30 gal tank and I was wondering how deep should it be? I'm not trying to open a can or worms here, I know there is considerable debate on the topic. I'm just asking for real life practical info. I was thinking of about 2-3 inches for some denitrification...

    I was at petsmart last night helping my friend get kitten supplies, for the new (really cute) kitten she just adopted from the humans society. When at petsmart I wanted over to the fish stuff and I saw that they had Tahitian Moon sand. Its black and it made me start to think about using that in...

Looks sweet there, now I just have to convince my S.O that we...

    Hy there everyone! I now have an extra empty 75 gallon tank besides my 75 reef. I have been throwing around ideas on what to do with it, I almost did a lot of things with it. I did not want to mess with another 75 salt water tank, but now I have changed my mind (duh) hehe..:D Anyway, I guess...
