Hey y'all, I'm a brand new reefer from Toronto Canada and I'm very excited to share my journey. From a young age I've been captivated by marine aquariums, now finally having set up my own I still feel that same youthful enthusiasm every time I look at my (mostly empty o_O) tank. Reef2reef is...
Hi everyone! Just saying hello. New to this community and just published my first builders thread post to document my journey and get to know some fellow reefers - especially locals I can connect with. I think you can click my builder bag but here is the link to where I'm at today.

Here is what I have currently, and what equipment I am using.
I know, I know....no sump or refugium, that will be added whenever I...
I need some advice on heaters for a new, still cycling, 24 gallon saltwater tank. Right now I have an older Eheim Jager 75w heater, but I'm not sure it will be enough for the tank for winter. You see, I previously lived in the SW United States and never had to use a heater on my saltwater tank...
