I have 2 build threads here.

I absolutely agree that a build thread is a fantastic way to "journal" your progress!! Not only do you have the written information, but also, hopefully, photographical data to visually see how the tank advances.

While it is awesome to see all the hardware photos, the actual living system photo journal is a HUGE plus to not only newbies reading along, but for yourself, as tank owner, to gauge the progress of your tank.

I personally have gone back many times and reviewed my own threads. I am astounded to see the progression of my tank. What you don't see day to day, is glaringly obvious when you look back several months and compare to today!!

They can also be called Journals! :p Build threads are very important to R2R and to people who are looking for help on R2R.

2. Did you know that you can get a spiffy build thread badge under your profile name once you create a build thread of your own?
Here is how you do that!

My build thread is in the DIY section, since I built my tank out of acrylic, from scratch. I've just kept it going since then. Here's the link: https://www.reef2reef.com/threads/first-diy-50g-acrylic-aquarium-and-wood-stand-build.914866/

So many of us soooo into our reefs... I LOVE it!

I recently removed internal filter as well, so my live rock and coral handle the cycle now - one step closer to a true "EcoSystem"

It did not. Clicking your build thread goes to a dead link. Edit the link to the 2nd one you posted as that one works.
Ah thank you. So trying to recreate my own didn't work. The 2nd is just what I copied from what was already there from the thread itself. Thanks!

Hi, I’ve been thinking about setting up a build thread. My tank is a nano so I’m not sure if I should be using the build thread section or nano build section. Is the nano build section still considered a build thread and linkable to your account?
