    Epoxy Paint or Marine Coating?

    Hey everyone. I’m building a stand for a tank I got a while back and I’ve been trying to see how to get a similar quality feel to something such as the Red Sea Reefer Stand. So far, I’ve found out that the doors are epoxy coated, but doing that in a home setting would take a lot of materials and...

    Red Sea Reefer XL 300

    Thinking about setting a tank back up after we sold our 450 because we moved. Thinking about doing a XL 300, would love to do larger like the 3XL 900!, but costs and placement so starting a bit smaller and if we can keep it going we may upgrade later. Here is the specs I'm thinking, any comments...

    Do you consider a tank above 30 gallons to be nano?

    Why are tanks above 30 gallons considered “nano”. I feel like that needs to be changed because calling 30, 35, or 40 gallon tanks nano Just seems very not right. They are not nano at all in my opinion, the cost of setting them up is especially not nano. What do you think?

    Hanna vs Red Sea Nitrite Testing

    Hi all, nearing the end of the cycle on a new tank. I have a Hanna Nitrite ULR tester that to-date won't give a reading as every test reports '200' (out of 0-200 ppb range). My Red Sea Nitrite tests are coming in between 0.5 and 1 ppt. I believe I should trust the Hanna (non)reading, but that's...
