    My Tank

    Really nice Tang. Good color. You might want to think about getting a cleaner shrimp. The skunk cleaner shrimp are the least expensive. My tang seems to like getting cleaned.

    10 Nov. Happy 231st Birthday Marines

    My mom was (is) a marine in WW2. As my mom says, "once a Marine, always a Marine". She taught me to appreciate and respect this country. Made sure the whole family stood up every time a flag would go by in the 4th of July parade in our little home town. Did that even when it was not a...

    cyclop-eeze question

    I feed this to my fish/corals by doing kinda like V said. I actually mix it with reef-bugs which takes 30 minutes to do. But I would think 15 minutes for the cyclop-eeze by itself would work too.

    Nova extreme t-5 with lunar lights

    I have the Nova T5s on my 58 and my two 75 gal tanks. I really like them. On one 75 I have the unit you are talking about. I have shrooms, LTA, leathers, polyps, palys, torch, nepthea and lobophyllia. All are happy. The other 75 has the Nova with 8 T5s. I have monti, pavona, pectinia...

    OK freaked out by Live Rock

    I found small bristle worms in my tank also. I put in a mated pair of coral banded shrimp from my other tank and they are taking care of the worms. I saw both of them eating one. It was rather interesting. I didn't see them catch it but I did see them eating it. They kind of mashed/killed...

    question from the noob

    I have made DIY rock from concrete and arraganite sand. I found instructions at GARF dot org. I have it in my 75 gal tank and it is starting to look like the other real rock. Great thing is that you can shape it any way you like. GARF has some ideas for you if you look at the pictures. Just...

    Skunk/Coral Banded Shrimp??

    I have a mated pair of CBS that were living fine with 2 cleaner shrimp, 1 fire red shrimp and a pistol shrimp in a 75 gal tank. I never had any problems. There was a lot of live rock and places for all the shrimp to hide. That could make a difference I guess. I just move the pair into a new...

    125 2nd floor ????

    When you look up at the plywood do you see any nails or screws? If you do are they running in a line at all? If you can make out a line that would be your joist. The plywood would be nailed or screwed to the joist and the line is the way the joist would run. Put the tank against a wall where...

    You should be ashamed of youself

    Sly your point would be better received if instead of just ranting and raving you would explain your point of view. What is the science behind your opinion? I have a plenum with a DSB and a bit of crushed coral sprinkled on top because I like the look and it works the best for me.

    150 reef from start to finish

    IM kinda new at this too so IM just posing questions to think about. Instead of having the tank drilled (which would mean he would have to empty it) couldn't he just get one of those plastic hang on skimmer boxes that have another plastic box on the outside of the tank that runs to a sump...

    Do Toadstools multiply on their own?

    WOW. I thought that they might be babies. Thanks mrdc and fedukeford. If it makes you feel any better the toadstool was in a set up tank that I bought with everything in it about 5 months ago. This toadstool was big then. It has grown alot though. It seems to really like the T5's it's...

    Do Toadstools multiply on their own?

    I have a toadstool in a 75 and it is getting huge! I have heard you can cut pieces off of them but do they multiply on their own? Mine has what looks like baby toadstools growing under the top about half inch from where the polyps are. First I thought it was crazy polyps growing under the...

    diy acrylic overflow on glass?

    I got a 75 gal Oceanic tank for free and the over flow is done a little different than what you said. I don't know how old this tank is or any of it's history but the overflow looks like it is factory installed. The tank has drain and return holes drilled in the bottom at the back, left...
