    My 25 Gallon Build Thread

    Hello all! Recently I've noticed that my current tank has started to get air in the silicone seals and I figured that maybe a tank upgrade would be appropriate.

    Hair Algae in 30g AIO Refugium

    I have a lot of hair algae in my chamber which I use as an refugium to grow chaeto. The chaeto grows very nicely but so as hair algae. It becomes very thick in less than a week everytime I clean it. My main display has little to no algae though. Just some on the glass. I run the light for my...

    How Full Is Too Full?

    Ok, so I have this LifeGard 29g AIO. When is full too full? I have been watching the water level in the back-sump go down over the past few days.
