    Hi Everyone, I've been running a 50lt Fluval Edge tank for a couple of years and have a small Clown, small Regal Tang, small File Fish and small 5 bar Wrasse. I'm looking to buy a used tank (around 250lts) but many are sold complete with live stock which often are a Tang, Clownfish and...

    I have a couple questions I'd like to run by people for advice. Does anybody have suggestions about the best way to clean a used tank? It looks raunchy and I don't want to leave any harsh chemicals behind. 2nd question: How much flow is too much? I'm considering getting a second power...
  3. The THINK Tank
    Yes I'm moving to fast....yes I have a lot of questions. So 6 weeks into a 34 gallon red sea cube I decided based on wanting coral as much as stock I picked up a used 72 gallon bow front set up. What does this do for me....It allows my instant gratification to be somewhat cured in that I...

    Hi guys, New to the hobby and this forum. I'm looking to purchase a used tank. Since I'm a newbie, the task of moving the tank is a little daunting. I'm thinking of hiring a professional aquarium mover to do the move - about how much would this cost, and anyone know of a service like this in...

    So, I finally made the decision to tear my 29g BioCube down and start over. It's only been running for a few months but I've had nothing but problems with it thanks to the LR I purchased from a LFS. I reached the conclusion that it will actually be more cost effective to begin again than try...

    Hello guys. I am new to this forum and a newbie reefer. I owned a 30 gallon tank 5 years ago with a very cheap system( all i could afford at the time) and already know a lot about the basics of upkeeping. I had to get rid of it since i was moving to an fish unfriendly area and i missed this...

    Hi TRT, This weekend I will be going and see a used tank. But from the picture I noticed something, and I though I would ask you guys first. Here's the picture: So here's what concerns me. If you look between the stand and the tank, it looks like the stand is not long enough for the...

    Hello everyone! I'm just getting into the hobby so I apologize for my lack of extensive knowledge. I just bought a used Biocube 29. It came with upgraded LEDs, return pump, and powerhead. I plan on adding a media basket and possibly a tunze 9002 skimmer, if anyone has any opinions on whether...

    I have a false percula clown fish and a damselfish in a relatively small tank. I have just bought a 50 gallon tank from someone else who had cycled the tank for 4 months with live rock, some hermit crabs, a peppermint shrimp, and a goby. I plan to keep it as a FOWLR tank. I plan to continue...

    I have the opportunity to purchase a 125 gallon tank and I'm going to see it this weekend... Do I risk purchasing a used tank? The owner stated that it had a fewe scratches along the bottom on the inside from the previous owner. They have it up and running and it will come with the following...

    I posted this in another section but didn't get much attention. Hope you guys can help a little here since I've been gone about 3 years a lot has changed and I'm having trouble sorting out the good deals from the bad ones. First I have a retired 90 gallon reef that I attempted to bring back...

First of all the deal itself is $1500 for a a four year old tank from an office that has been maintained by an outside service company. It comes...

    So here is the deal. The GF asked for a reef tank for XMAS (or her B-day the 26th, hard to remember which), and of course I feel the need to comply. So I have been hunting around for used and new setup, and this is what I have so far. Each has some significant plus sides to, whether it be...

    I bought a small frag tank secondhand. It has what appears to be dried up hair algae in it. So my question for the experts, or those people smarter than me, is how do I make sure that nothing survives to kick my butt later? I have scrubbed everything and I have it soaking with vinegar water...
