    Build Thread Tatic's Fluval Flex 32.5 minimizing tank build

    Hey everyone, pretty new here but I am a long time lurker. I had a 60 gallon FOWLR tank running since 2010-2011 and decided to shut it down for a smaller tank. I wanted an AIO and went with the Fluval Flex 32.5 Saltwater kit. I am really liking it so far but, at times I wish I had my bigger...

    AIO Build The Reefer's IM Nuvo 25 AIO Tank Journal

    Hello friends. I've always wanted to try a "nano" build after watching a video of Michael Rice's 30g Innovative Marine all-in-one build on the Reef Builders' YouTube channel.

    Hello, I am now the owner of a 210 gallon tank that is not drilled. I'm thinking of doing an internal sump of about 55 Gallons. I would start at 6" wide section for the internal overflow and live rock/bioballs under that and then expand to 1' to accommodate the skimmer, etc. My concern is...

    Build Thread Red Sea E170 max AIO mixed reef build - first reef tank

    I have been keeping fresh water “high tech” planted aquariums (CO2), and thought I should try something really high tech and start my first reef tank. I went with the Red Sea e170 max ($1744) since I liked the form factor and I liked the rear sump option. 45 G (37 G display 8 G sump) 24" L x...

    AIO Build MDR's 25 Lagoon

    I know I kind of missed the boat on the setup but while its still in its infancy I figured I'd start documenting the progression of my 25 lagoon.
