    I'm looking to turn my 20L into a temporary sump w/refugium for my 110 gallon. ( I plan on upgrading). I'm confused on how I should position the baffles, what materials to make the baffles out of and how talls should the baffles be? if anyone can post examples of theirs i'd truly appreciate it.

    I have a 10g and a 14 gallon tank both have been set up for a while now but a while back I decided to upgrade them to my 36 gallon bowfront. So I have had the 36 gallon set up now for about 3-4 weeks and am looking to start moving over the contents of the smaller tanks. The 36 gallon is testing...

    My 155 bow front mixed reef has a leak. Bottom front seam, not accessible under rim, poured faux concrete bottom making repair impossible. Leak is manageable about 2 gallons a day. Has been stable for a week. I am catching all the water (I think) I was got a used 185G with all the trimmings but...

    Hey all, so I've been waiting for this to come. I've upgraded to a 40gal breeder from a 20gal long. My decision to choose a 40gal breeder over a 55gal is the fact that the 40 breeder as a width (back to front length) of 18" and the 55 is only 13. I wanted the extra size in width so that I could...

    I have a 40B with 1/2 BB and 1/2 substrate (back 1/2 is BB w/ a powerhead blowing across it). I'm upgrading to a 75 acrylic and seriously thinking of going the BB Route. My concerns are: (1) Watchman goby who doesn't burrow. He like holes in the rocks. (1) Yasha Goby and Pistol pair that...

    I love my 40B, but am upgrading to a 75 acrylic. Picked up a new tank and stand on the cheap (needs a metric fork ton of sanding, polishing etc, but worth it). As you can see my 40 is getting a bit crowded and I just so happen to have the wall space + found a killer deal. Debating on the new...

    So, I have had a 20 gallon for about 5-6 months now. I started it up just to see how i did at saltwater after a 10 year break, and with the only casualty being a monti who fell on my frogspawn I feel like i am ready to go bigger. I began the 20 extra high with a very basic setup of a emperor 400...
