Seriously interested to know what you guys think of this tank? Personally, I think it's creative and awesome, however I have seen some people hate on it saying the aquascape is not for them :/
(details on this tank are in the YouTube description, just click on the video link)
Hey guys I just got into the reef game again after a few failed attempts. I am finally at the point where I can throw a little bit of money at the tank and I am really wanting to create a reef. I can only have a 5 gal due to housing restrictions and i know this might make things harder but im...
I live in Concord, but the company I work for provides me with the opportunity to travel all over NC, VA, and SC. I have been in the fish keeping hoby for about 7 years now, but I started my first Nano reef in February of this year. Currently, I have a small Bam Bam orange zoanthid colony, it's...
A little background; I had this setup back in college and kept a pretty successful tank with primarily SPS along with hammers and zoas. Even with it being moved to and from the dorms every few weeks in line with breaks, I had decent growth and color. After graduation, I gave the tank to my...
I recently got a 12 gallon fluval that i would love to make a reef. Im trying to figure out the best filtration method for this nano because i am limited on space with the 6 inch opening and the shape.
I saw a video on the marine pack on youtube that is a cool filtration system for...

Looking back at my first reef tank a couple years ago, a 29 gallon from petco with a HOB filter, a $10 heater and two $8 powerheads from Amazon..
This tank had no business even keeping the hardiest of fish alive! I had no idea what I was doing! How did I grow coralline all over the rocks...
I was hoping for advice on led lights. I have the jbj 28 g nano and i was considering removing the stock canopy and replacing w a clear lid. The leds i was looking at includes:
1) aqua illumination prime hd $225
2) aqua hydra 26 $349
3) aquatic life halo deluxe reef fixture...
This is my Innovative Marine Nuvo Fusion 20 Gallon AIO tank. Started it up about a year or so ago, but it's not my first reef tank ;). All the coral started from little frags, so there is at least a healthy growth to some extent. Im not a guy to use aquarium controllers and high-tech type of...
Hi all! I am setting up a new nano reef to transfer everything from my Evolve 8 into. I wanted a tank that was longer vs square like the 8. So, I got the Imagitarium Arc 6.25 gallon bowfront glass aquarium. It's an AIO, but I plan on modifying some of it.
For starts, I'll be replacing the stock...
Hey guys, never done a build thread. I'm getting ready to start up a IM 14g peninsula nano, and I thought I would share my progress with you.
I bought this tank because because I had purchased a Biota coral beauty angelfish online, not realizing exactly how small it is. I thought, "Ok, 1⅛"...
After recently moving from 42 Wallaby Way to our new home we decided to build a 'small' saltwater aquarium to learn a little about science and keep a clownfish or two. I have never had an aquarium before so this is my first attempt to recreate about 2 cubic feet of the south Pacific...
About two months ago I bought an algae scrubber from Santa Monica filtration (Drop 1.4). I have had it running and am getting ZERO growth except for some nasty slightly brown goo. In my tank however I am getting a very small amount of green hair algae. Any advice on how to get the growth in the...
hello everyone. I was told today at my LFS that I shouldn't/ don't need to run carbon on my tank all the time.. but only when, and or if I need it. My tank is 13.5 gl, 12 working gallons, with 1.5 gl sump, and holds about 10gl after water displacement. im finishing up cycling the tank, and will...
I am out of room in my Fluval Evo 13.5 - I currently stick my GFO bag in the compartment with pump since that gets most flow probably.
So I am looking at all the turbulence in the middle of the stock skimmer & wondered---"hey what if I stuck the bag there?!" Definitely more water movement!
After 7 long and un-utilized years without an aquarium set up, I have at long last settled into a new home that I don't plan on leaving any time soon. During our housewarming party, a friend offered her old 36 gallon aquarium/stand. I gladly accepted it with grand plans of doing a freshwater...
My tank is turning a year old this week. My maintenance routine is 15% weekly water changes with sand "vacuuming" and glass cleaning. I run an Eshopps nano skimmer for additional filtration and just recently began running Chemipure Blue and GFO to help with water quality.

Hi, I was wondering since i don't have an RODI system, could i use distilled? I heard that i shouldn't because some components aren't broken down all the way. but i would love to know your guys opinion on it! :p:p
I'm not sure if it is sand particles or small air bubbles circulating through my tank. I am not sure if this is normal for salt water tanks, if anyone could help or tell me what this is that would be greatly appreciated! (I am new to salt water tanks) This is a 13.5 gallon tank with ~7 lbs of...
