    Frag tank: JBJ lagoon or IM Lagoon?

    I want to put together a frag tank, mostly LPS, a bit larger than my current one which is 8 gallons. I'm trying to decide between the IM 25 Lagoon or the JBJ 20 Lagoon. JBJ link IM link I could use some opinions. I'm torn between the two and I have never owned any tanks from either brand to...

    Starting a new Frag/reef

    Ok guys, I need some advice again. I have been helping my two boys with a new stand alone frag/reef build over the past several weeks (pic attached). We got a nice deal on a 45 gal RR peninsula tank, set it on top of a DIY stand, added a 20 gallon long sump with a SCA 302 skimmer, and a reef...
