    RosterV's 93G coral cube

    I had a very unfortunate series of events lately. I had to go up to my family's farm for a few days after my granny had her knee replaced and I ultimately did not feed this tank for four days. I also set the Metal halide light on a timer where I had been manually running it a few hours a day and...

    Noisy drains

    Hey compadres, have been playing around with airline and the drains are still not ideal. Squatch that's an idea about trying to silence the gurgling through the air tubes also, but overall I'm just not really digging the drains. They have to whirlpool and suck some air in from the top every so...

    Water changes not helping nitrates, biopellets or algae scrubber?

    GlennF's reefing heaven!

    Super nice Glenn! Very inspirational. I got to thinking to ask you.. I got a second tank myself recently and am kind of struggling to double up all my equipment. I wonder if you have a common system in place feeding multiple tanks so you don't need multiple skimmers, dosers, reactors, etc? I'd...

    Water changes not helping nitrates, biopellets or algae scrubber?

    hello reef forum friends, I'm trying to get serious about getting my nitrates down. There is not really any corals or fish suffering and my tank appears healthy as can be but it's gotten to the point that my api Nitrate test is maxed dark orange to red indicating 50-80 ppm and changing 30...

    planning phase of a new 180 tank ???

I've never welded acrylic before but it seems pretty doable and cheaper and easy to cut compared to glass. kind of excited...
