    55 to 90 gallon upgrade

    Hi, I'm upgrading from a 55 acrylic to a glass 90 gallon. I want to stay away from drilling & bulkheads with this glass. I don't care for the overflow box look. Do any of you remember long ago the picture, I think was in the DIY section of a pvc drain manifold set up? It had a "T" and a...

    Help wit my sump?

    You could also install a pvc "T" on the return hose. One hose or pipe up to the display tank, and the other hose back into the sump. +1 on the ball valves. I have ball valves on all drains & returns.

    Constant drip water changes

    Any of you freinds have a constant drip water change setup? I'm in the trial n error phase of this project. I have a 10 gallon tank above the DT, with clean circulating saltwater mix that is set on a constant drip to the DT. On the other end of the DT, I have a drain system valve adjusted to...

    76-78F. The main thing is to avoid temp. fluctuations.

    +1 Jmck, your refugium would be a great addition to your overall filtration system.

    new tank

    Absolutly. Your live rock helps the cycle & stability of your water quality, however when you transition from fresh to saltwater many will remind you patience is the #1 rule. Especially if your talking seahorses already. Many advanced reefers on this site have given me countless helpful...

    DIY Wet/Dry Refugium, Could this work?

    Cool video. I'm thinking that butterfly fish isn't reef safe though!?! I built my sumps, with plexiglass seperators also, cut to size from the Home Depot.

    How much to feed tang

    My blue hippo tang has done great on the dried seaweed sheets fed daily, available at your LFS. She (Dori of course), also is treated to long stem spinach I leave in the DT for her natural grazing habits.

    stock limit?

    What kind of 20 gallon sump? Is it a wet/dry trickle for the heavy bio load of swimmers? Is it a fuge? Do you have a good skimmer? Was just interested in finding out because I'm thinking of upgrading to a 75 gallon also.

    Acrylic Tank

    I got my 55 gallon acrylic on craigslist for $75.00. It didn't have any scratches before. Now, careful as I've been, there are scratches everywhere. I have had it a little over 2 years, and am now thinking about going back to glass. I wanted acrylic to start with because of how easy you can...

    What to stock in a 15 gallon fuge?

    Doing a diy fuge this weekend. It will be a 15 gallon sump, but the fill line will be about 10 gallons, to allow for power loss overflow protection. Could you help me with these questions? How deep a sand bed? lbs of live rock suggested? would you advise micro algae & how much? What...

    Newbie here :)

    Hi Isa, welcome to the site. I would start with live rock (LR), first, followed by some fish, slowly though, then as your skills fine tune lean towards the inverts. I've had 2 years of good luck with my hobby, (swimmers & inverts in my DT), and I learn something new everyday from the many...

    algae scrubber or fuge?

    Hi reef freinds. I'm making a list for the hardware store for a DIY algae srubber or a 20 gallon refugium. Which works better for nitrates? I considered building both, however room under my stand seems to be an issue. Thanks for any advice you can share!
