    DIY Wavebox

    tutorial. Google those three words and that will give you what you need to build one. To make a wavebox, you must use a DC powerhead, not AC. Most all Tunze powerheads, except the nano I believe, are DC powered(controllable). I bought a Tunze 6100 of the other large board for $150. Put...

    DIY wavemaker

    Just found my next DIY project on the other board. The main expense is a Tunze controllable powerhead. Has to be DC, and most all powerheads are AC with the exception of controllable Tunze. The DIY controller looks very simple to construct. Once I find a used Tunze at the right price, my...

    Cooking Live Rock

    No it does not involve an oven. Over the past 9 months or so I have had a constant battle with bryopsis in my tank. No matter what I did it would not go away. I tried Vodka, Prodibio, large water changes, phosban, and I fed my tank only once a week. Nothing worked. The whole time this was...

    Home Depot Acrylic ?

    I plan on making a 5g Kalk reservoir that I plan to put a float valve in for auto-top offs. I've heard mixed reviews on the acrylic from Home Depot as being safe or not safe. Anyone have any first hand experience with the acrylic from HD?

    Skimmerless or not?

    All this talk on here of how Remora's are such superior skimmers(which I will never understand from my experiences with it) got me thinking. Does anyone on here run a skimmerless tank? If so, what are your results, and what do you use for your filtration? Google advanced aquarist Frank...

    DIY Moonlights~$17

    I thought I would share my DIY moonlights. I bought a 12V 600ma AC/DC converter from WalMart for $7. I then bought two blue leds(470nm) for $5 each. Google auto lumination. From there go to hit the "LED Bike, Go Ped, Motorcycle, ATV, Boat and RV Light Fixtures" tab. On that page...

    55g SPS

    My camera is horrible and does not do my tank justice, but here are a few shots anyway. I've had the tank for almost two years now, but I had to move it last August down here to Louisville. During the trip/process I lost most of my acros, but I have since added a few more frags.

    Fighting Conch-Queen Conch

    Yesterday I bought two fighting conches for my 55g DT. I thought the fighting conches were the small ones(4in), and the Queen Conches the large ones (12in). Then I just looked at the inverts on this page for sale. It says the fighting conches should be kept in an aquarium no smaller than 100...

    Kalk? Vinegar?

    Bang Guy or anyone else. I know I've read in the past that Bang Guy suggested using vinegar with Kalk. My question is exactly what does the vinegar (H+) do with the Kalk (OH-), and why this is beneficial. Also how do you mix them in terms of a ratio between the two?

    SCWD problem?

    I've owned a scwd for a little over a year now. And yesterday it quit switching outputs. It seems the gears are stuck. So I took off my return line and unscrewed it from the line then soaked in vinegar all last night. I thought this would fix my problem, but it still is stuck? Any...

    Aggressive Zoos

    How is possible to get these guys to calm down. They won't stop spreading. I keep pulling off the branches, and they come right back. This is how it used to look like only 2 months ago.
