  1. General Reef Discussion
    Hello! How long to wait before switching tanks? any problems with multiple tank moves? I currently have a 35 gallon hex with a 5.5gal sump (only thing that will fit under the stand) and do not like it. Granted it looks cool and is relatively big on gallons for its foot print; but it is a pain...

    I have pick up a 180 as a tank rescue, it had around 200 lbs of live rock and 200 lbs of sand. When we moved it we pumped the water into a container, put the sand in buckets (4 five gallon) with the rock in brute trash cans. Once home we spent five hours cleaning sump and tank while soaking...

    Sorry if this is in the wrong section, please move it if needed. Being my first post I feel a little back ground is in order, I've had my green spotted puffer for around 2 years (it's my first fish tank) without any major problems except for keeping nitrate under control. A week ago I bought a...

    I just purchased a 120 gallon reef tank complete with fish and corals. I plan n taking almost all water. Should I try to leave the fugue sand bed inact by just keeping it mois or replace it? I will keep the mangroves etc in water as well. The tank needs some maintenance as there is bubble algae...

    My wife has decided that it's time to replace the carpet in the house so I spent all of yesterday tearing down the 90gal reef and moving the inhabitants into Rubbermaid containers.

    So I just moved my 55G reef tank from up stairs to the basement last month and put new sand in it at that time and everything is doing really well now.

May have to have...
