    I am buying some dyr fiji and tonga rock from macrorocks.com. they say it is clean and has no critters. I do plan on washing and scrubbing it when I get it. My question is since it does not have any life on it can I add it right to the tank and allow stuff to grow? or do I need to cure it first...

    Reg and I have been planning to put together a 40 breeder system for months. A few weeks ago, I finally found a new job (working in the aquarium industry no less!). This means we finally have the means to do what we first envisioned for this project. First, we both work full time, go to...
  7. nano build off 2008
    Wow, that's a mouthful. This is my Official Thread (the first "Build" thread I've ever started as I came in with a tank already started). So HERE it is : Yes it is still Dry. I am waiting for work to tell me when the office is moving and whether I can start the tank there. If tomorrow...

    I picked up a new monti cap today. Not really sure but it seems to have a few dead areas on the bottom. The areas look to have been dead a while but I can't help but wonder if I have nudis. I didn't see anything with a magnifying glass. It is in my nano with no other monti's for now. Not...

    So the hunt continues for the infamous gorilla crab... I set a trap for him again tonight, but if I don't catch him my husband and I were thinking of taking all the live rock out tomorrow and inspecting each piece. We were also going to sift through the sand in case he buried himself. I...

    Ok, here's my first attempt of building, and for that matter owning a reef tank. I've had a small 16 gal nano for almost 2 years and have had mixed sucsess with it, so ive decided to go big. I've built a 62" long, by 20" wide, by 25" tall (135 gallons) 1/2" acrylic tank. I had the two front...

    Just some new additions. I lost all of my rics so ive been looking for someone who could hook me up with a bunch of different colors to replace my little ricordia patch. I finally found someone. :) They are still kinda ticked. They were dipped and most of them glued to rocks about 2 hours...

    Just want to get a feel for how much interest there is. My husband and I decided, reluctantly, to sell off our tank. We travel too much to adequately take care of it. It's a 90 gallon tank in a stand, under tank sump, RO/DI setup, turbofloater 1000 skimmer, approx 100 lbs of nice rock, lots of...

    I am planning to buy ~100 lbs of live rock. I already picked up some base rock and 25 lbs of Tonga branch & shelf from EWOF. I'm now looking at 60 lbs of Haiti rock from etropicals and ~40 lbs of Marshall Islands rock from Premium Aquatics. Both varieties are supposed to have a lot of nooks...

    Hi everyone. I wanted to take a minute to post the details of my new nano build. I'm working on an Oceanic 29BC to replace the 20H I was keeping as part of the nano build off. The 20H was supposed to become a seahorse tank but continual temperature issues have forced me to abandon the project. I...

    First off, as many of you know, this is my first aquarium. Since I started setting it up in January, I have been bitten pretty hard by the reef bug and I have grown very attached to my reef inhabitants. I am extremely cognizant of trying to make sure that they are living in a comfortable...

    i've got the sand out and laid in the cutting board to fit, haven't siliconed the bottom in yet. I do need to silicone the edges right? I know I need to seal the bottom since it is pieced in.

    I had to take my cat to the vet this morning - he'd been in a fight and had a wound that needed tending. He's 19, somebody should tell him he's too old to be out scrapping... I happened to have my camera with me so I snapped some pictures of the tank. This is my *original* customer. I...
