I’ve got a new Waterbox Marine X 35.1 aquarium that I’ve had set up for <1 month thus far. I have a few soft corals and two RBTA which are all doing well, and two clownfish. My plan for this aquarium is to do an SPS dominant reef with a few zoanthids and mushrooms. Currently in my sump...
Hello fellow reefers,
Looking for some advice on lighting my tank, as I am not happy with the current visual aesthetic. I have a 165W black box (actually don't know the brand, got it from another reefer who said "it was the best around 2014"). My first corals (LPS and Zoa) are doing great and...
I have a 24 cal cube, looking to keep LPS ands softies along with fish.
I currently have 2 Ocellaris clownfish and would like to add in the future (in order of preference)
Bangii Cardinal (2?)
Would this be okay in regards to compatibly...
Below is from a slightly older post but everything still applies plus I added a scarlet skunk cleaner shrimp.
I have a 14 gallon cube currently with a pair of young percula clownfish (one is probably 2 inches or so and the other might be 1.5ish), as well as several hermit crabs and snails, with...
I am looking to upgrade from my nano 30 to a 50 gallon cube.
Here is what I have for my stock list for far. Please let me know what you think. The ones that say current are currently getting along in my tank. Thanks!
2 clowns (current)
3 chromis (1 current)
Hi all! First time reefer here.

I was wondering what light cycle and intensities you recommend.
looking to have clowns & anemone, along with Zoas & other coral as well
First off please let me know if this is posted in the wrong place, as it is my first thread on this site. *Coming from freshwater*

Ok, my time as come to start by build thread. I've been watching @Tonycass12 @Arcu2 @FrontRangeReefer Marine X 60.2 threads, but probably time to start mine. Just to document progress, ask questions and contribute my own experience for others. No ETA for the tank yet, but hopefully soon. This...
I am a first time reefer getting started with a CADE REEF 600 S2. I have had previous fresh water tanks and wanted to try my hand at a mixed reef tank.
Started my research on Red Sea AIO tanks, but then I came across the CADE systems. I liked the aluminum and glass stand, built in ATO, and pre...
Hello there! I'm Daan, and this is going to be my first reef build journal here. I've been in the freshwater hobby for over 15 years and recently decided to make the jump to saltwater.
Freshwater and aquascaping has always my main hobby and passion. Countless planted tanks have been setup and...
Welcome to my documentation and journey with this amazing hobby.
This system has been set up for the last two years but the first year was nothing but issues. I would lose acropora and LPS from RTN and polyp bailout. After many ICP tests and nearly throwing in the towel I found that I...
I am new to the community so excuse my ignorance. I found my love for reef tanks in my teens, but my minimum wage job at 16 couldn’t dream of keeping up with the hobby, so I gave up on it. Now that I make adult money, and still don’t have children to feed, I can try again.
So I am new to saltwater. I bought a used setup from OfferUp that needed some work so I have been working on it (stand had water damage, black back needed to be scraped, light connectors corroded, etc.).
As of today, the stand is done and the back is scraped. I have the material to fix the...
Hello fellow reefers!
I recently purchased a Waterbox aquarium and decided to make up a build thread. This will be my second tank but I want this to be my first "do it right" tank since my first one was filled with error and is quickly turning into an aiptasia haven... ;Sorry I am making this...
Ok...here we go. I recently moved and bought a 135 gallon Crystal Dynamic aquarium. The tank is 36 by 36 by 24, and it has a stand a canopy as well. I have had reef tanks since I was about 15 and about 15 years later finally decided buy my first new tank. It definitely came with a price tag, but...
OK here goes, my first build thread. Please be critical and lemme know what you would do to make it better. Here are a few pics, 1 week in. Equipment is still modest, as I have only added an Icecap Gyre 2K so far.
This is an Aquatop AOI. 32 lbs of rock and 40 lbs of sand. I left a little...
Hey y'all, wanted to share my first tank with the community here! ✌
My name's Andrew, and this is my foray into reefkeeping. Excited to be around such knowledgeable and passionate members!
Cycled the tank with the Microbacter Start XLM.
I carelessly didn't read the instructions and ran live...
So here we are. As the title states, we went to our LFS to pick up a Betta for our little one, but as we were checking out I spotted my girlfriend eyeing a lonely tank in the corner. An Aquatop Recife 40 Gallon All-In-One, who was desperate for a home. This would be her first-ever tank, so we...
Considering taking my 60cm cube (24 inches) live, but not happy with its simple glass box sump.
I want to run a refugium and a skimmer, also want space for a media (going to run Orca Lab bio cubes) in the sump.
Any designs out there that works under cubes this size?
What small footprint...
