    Plans for future tank, lighting question

    Ok so I'm planning on a 150g and was wondering which lighting I should use. I have a 150w HQI Sunpod Metal Hallide 20" 14k. I was wondering if I should get another one of those and use those to light my 150g or get a 60" IceCap VHO Fluorescent lighting system (560w total). If I did the VHO's...

    Tore down my tank today.

    Well traded my fish in to the lfs today. Going to finish taking down my tank later today. Sad to see my favorite fish go, and even worse to see the lfs handle my fish and start acclimating them. They poured them from my 5g buckets to theirs. I had to keep my opinioin to my self, and it was...

    Mass Effect anyone?

    Anyone else play it? I just beat it and I think it's the best game for 360 out as of now. I even like it better than COD4. Amazing storyline, gameplay, and song during the credits.

    Peppermint shrimp randomly keep on dying!

    Well two weeks ago I bought one peppermint shrimp and he decided to go in the back of the tank, and never returned. Never found him and nitrates didn't spike. Today I bought two peppermint shrimp and a Citron Clown Goby. Later that night while I was waiting for my new TV to auto-program, I...

    Modification (I guess) for my 125g Possiblity

    Well on my 125g AGA aquarium on the top there is a 2' wide piece of glass that's built in the aquarium. It is for so that the hinged top can go on top and fit nicely. Anyways it takes up precious space where I could put some other HOB type filtration, so I was wondering if I could break it off...

    Re-doing my 125g into aggressive FOWLR

    Well now that my dad got a job as a traveling tech, he isn't home to take care of the fish when I'm not there. So they decided that it'd be best to just keep the 125g instead of spend money downgrading, and put it in an office at my mom's house. I'm going to get trading a lot of fish in at the...

    SPS randomly died

    Well it was sorta white last night and now is white, don't see how it can recover. :( Umm water was low so did a top off last night of 3g or so, (it's in a 10g) which was a little much but still I figured if it needed calcium or need better salinity then I figured its best chance was getting...

    Looking for Aquariums in OKC

    Well my dad got the conformation he's going to be taking a job in New Mexico short term in a week. He's going to be a traveling ultrasound tech, so he can't keep care of the 125g at his house, and there's no room at my mom's besides her garage, which I'm trying to avoid that option. So I'm...

    Aquariums in the Garage

    Well my dad is taking a job in New Mexico which means that him and I need to decide what to do with my 125g. I realy don't want it in my room and there'd be no room unless I removed my furniture, and it's a pretty small room. My mom is parinoid about the whole 100's of gallons of water in her...

    New Clam has Aisptasia, Help

    Well went to a lfs and bought a fire fish, a sps frag, and a clam. Didn't look at the clam closely enough to see the lil aisptasia all over it's shell. The SPS frag was in the same tank BTW. Overheard someone mention aisptasia in one of the tanks, but didn't see any in the frag tank because I...

    Well my dad is going to be moving so I'm going to have to get rid of these guys either way. But he may keep the tank, and there are certian fish we just don't want in there. I'll be perfectly honest about these fish and why I don't wish to keep them. I'm also selling these for low prices and...

    Mike's 10g Nano Thread

    Well today is the day. I'm going to move over my 10g and get the equitment hooked up. I'll take pics of it being set up. I'm going to try and get some rocks from my 125g and 20g to start cycling, but I'm going to have to make sure the rocks don't have the algae on it that the rest of the tank...

    Do frag tanks need cycling? ^There's why I'm thinking about this and what I'm thinking about. But my question is, since cycling is to prepare the tank for the bio-load of fish, what if you don't have any fish in there? What if it's just corals...
