    New 40b - Return To Reefing

    I've been out of the hobby for about 15 years. I used to have a small nano, and my brother was the one with all the tanks. I started scouring Craigslist and other mediums to find a used tank. I found this 40 breeder not too far from my home for $20. So far I've removed the blue paint on the...

    My 40b Build

    So today was an exciting day for my girlfriend and I our offer was accepted on a house! I figured today would be a good day to start my build thread.

I built my own stand and made sure it was large enough to eventually upgrade to a 40B if things went well with the 20. Well I have been waiting for a $1 per gallon sale for weeks and finally got my 40B...

    Brett’s Reef Tank 40g breeder build thread

    Hi guys. My name is Brett and I’m almost 14 years old. My parents got me an early bday gift and it was a 40b and 20l sump. We will be buying the rest of the equipment as we move this tank build forward. This is my second tank. My first tank was a 10g tank that has been thriving for 4 months now...

    Hey DIYers! Later this month, I am going to be back in the reefkeeping after moving across the country and buying a house. I have a larger skimmer from previous builds and would like to use this with a refugium. Doing so, I have decided to run a 40b tank with a 40b sump until I inevitably...
