Im an Air Force Doc and have had small tanks with some success over my education but I came into this 125 from a fellow doc and want to document the build. I will be at this base for 5 years and just purchased a home for the new tank to live at:
So I recently purchased a used 125 gallon tank from a local reefer ( Pics at bottom of this post) .
It came with a sump and all the plumbing, and was a reasonable price for what it was .
It wasn't the cleanest tank I have ever picked up , but it hardly had any scratches I could see, and I...

For the past 5 years or so, I have not had an active Reef. I've had a few tank crashes due to power outages and diseases.
I've managed to restart my 150G Reef again during COVID because you just have that kind of time now :) (Beats watching Netflix of TV)
I have 2 Main Tanks.

Hello I am new to the hobby. I have been in the freshwater hobby for about 3 years now and I want to get into the reef hobby. I am wanting to set up a 10 gallon nano reef tank. Are there any suggestions for all the equipment for the tank. Kinda on a budget. Thanks for the help.
I had a small saltwater tank for about a month before i had to shut it down for a job change and move. That was many years ago. I have always had a freshwater tank running and currently have 3. 2 Nano Betta Tanks and 1 55 gallon planted tank with Angelfish.
Last Year I purchased...
I recently moved across country to Tennessee where I restarted my 10 gallon innovative Marine tank which is doing great and packed.
I wanted to get a bigger tank (since what else is there to do during Covid) so I decided to go for a 36 Gallon Bow front that I bought used and add a...
Ok so here it goes.
I had a, rather my father, 175 gal tank when I was younger and I always wanted one. Now I have a mini me! It started it in May. Here are some pics
I dont have the hermits any more. They are one of my fish. I got rid of them and replaced my fish.
I also don’t have the...
I recently moved, started a new job, and decided that now is the time to upgrade my reef tank!
A little background: I've been using a 46 gallon bowfront tank that my dad and I set up when I was in 6th grade. That reef lasted until we moved a couple yeasrs later but, between one thing...
I plan to tour Wisconsin checking out other hobbyists builds and frag tanks. We all know the real heat comes from us at home pouring our love into our frag tanks. If you’d like a visit drop your name I’d love to meet you!! Check out Coralqueendom on Instagram
Hello! first time posting my tank on here.

In the process of quarantining away from my aquarium, and in the very near future moving, I decided to build a new system for my fish/corals that will last at least the two years on my next lease. My fiancé is not completely on board with the idea of going bigger for the aquarium, so I convinced...
So....you all asked for photos on my updates so here they are. This is my 40gal w/ 20gal sump that i DIY'd all by myself.
CAN I TELL YOU HOW EXCITED I AM
i was so fearful the pump wouldnt be strong enough or the setup would just fall apart. BUT YOUR GIRL DID IT ALL ALONE. I had a minor freak out...
Hello! I am an ex-marine biologist (now engineer). I worked in husbandry at a landlocked aquarium for 4 years. I have been missing my love for tanks, specifically my saltwater babies.
A fried has a Tiger Oscar that has outgrown their tank and has upgraded to a 75 gallon. Thus, I have an empty...
I've had my 180 gallon aquarium up & running for ~ 4 years now & I've been trimming SPS out of it for a long time & I'm running out of room. I recently setup a used 120g & connected it to the 180g that is now growing a bunch of Battle corals.
Since posting on Instagram - I've received...
It’s finally going down.. my.. sorta dream build. I acquired a 120 gallon tank back in 2011. Complete with stand, canopy, sump and some radion gen 1’s. Got it home and decided.. I didn’t wanna use the stand.. or the lights.. or the sump lol.. I just for some odd reason absolutely love the...
How long does it really take a tank to “mature” as people commonly call it. What are they key factors to properly maturing a tank. I’ve seen a lot of people say 1 whole year for a tank to become fully mature. Do you agree. Could this process be speed up and if so how. Also how do you know you...
Hello R2R , I'm a long time lurker, first time poster. I just felt others would like to follow this crazy "project" of mine.
I'm currently running a 6ft 125 gallon, but always felt something a bit bigger would allow me to have more of the fish I love, this combined with my desire to have a fish...
So I am new to the hobby and my tank is about three months old. I will be posting updated progress of coral growth and my tank build in general.
At the moment I am running everything that came with this AIO except for the filter sock and the ATO. I added my own ATO instead...
A couple of weekends ago, I almost bought a brand new Innovative Marine Fusion Nano 20. It was on sale for $240 and came with lights. I debated and when I finally decided to pull the trigger on it, it was gone. It just disappeared from my shopping cart. POOF!! It was no longer available on...
