    Chris's Pico Pest Reef!

    Hey guys! So, I recently had a disaster in my hobby. My apartment had to be treated for pests, and I was required to remove all of my tanks from the apartment during treatment. During this time, I ended up losing about half of my livestock - including my beloved Peacock Mantis Shrimp. I do...

    Starting a salt-water /reef and fish tank - how to cycle it?

    Since I didn't want to sink thousands of dollars into this I bought a 32 gallon Biocube (and am now sinking thousands of dollars on extras and modifications) - but I'm just about ready to mix my salt water. Since I am renting this duplex I didn't want to permanently alter the plumbing so I...

    Hi everyone, I just started the saltwater aquarium with my saltwater mollies. I realized that I add salt probably the wrong way so can you guys help me out?

    Planning a tank with seahorses!!!(dwarf probably)

    Hello everyone. I have a plan for a dwarf sea horse tank but I just want other people's thoughts on this to make sure it's good! So, I would want a fluval Evo, 5 gallons. I would probably have 12-16 dwarf seahorses as I read you can have 4 per gallon and I want to go easy since I'm just starting...

    I Want To Start A Nano Reef Sometime This Summer...

    Hey guys I have a lot of freshwater tanks but this summer I wanted to set up a saltwater tank. I have some live rock/dry coral or something that my dad got from florida a long time ago. It's a pretty big piece, and I think it would fit nicely in a 10 gallon. I have never had a saltwater tank...

    10 Gallon Nano Reef

    I recently had to downsize my 220 gallon tank dew to moving later this year but I couldn't really give it all up lol. So I've kept a few corals and set up a little 10 gallon nano tank with a hang on back refugium. Since I can't post pics on this site from my iPad for some reason I'll post...

    Nano Saltwater Reef Tank?

    I was just wondering if it would be doable to create a small nano saltwater reef tank. I was thinking something as small as 5 gallons and have a low tech setup with an anenome and maybe some small saltwater fish. Is it possible? I have a freshwater planted tank right now and want to move on to...

    Diy Frag Plugs. My Experiment

    So I'm downgrading from my current 300 gallon reef tank to a 75 gallon frag tank. New job and less time made me choose to do soemthing a little smaller.

    So last Tuesday we had a massive wind storm that blew over trees knocked down power lines and put 180 thousand+ people out of power here in my area.

    230 Gallon Reef Tank.

    So I found a good deal on craiglsits for this 230 gallon starphire glass tank that I decided to set up instead of my 125 gallon. It will fit on the same stand and I'm going to use the same set up idea but just with this bigger tank. Because of the way my basement is set up the sump and refugium...
