  1. 14G Reef Biocube.

    What an easy tank to take care of. All I do is top it off with RO water, clean out the skimmer and glass. I don't feed or do anything else at all.
  2. Got a great deal on a 90 gallon today.

    A friend of mine has been trying to sell his 90 gallon and stand on CL for a couple of months. Today he calls me and tells me to come and get it for free. It's a 90 gallon with a stand, light, cover, a couple of heaters and timers. Best deal I've ever gotten on a fish tank. I have too many...
  3. Anyone interested in a friendly bristle worm competition?

    Just for fun would anyone be interested in seeing how big we could raise a bristleworm? I was thinking about catching one, may take awhile since I haven't seen one in my tanks for over a year, raising it in a 5 gallon tank to start and seeing how big I could get it. If someone else would do...
  4. Did a good thing today.

    And a bad thing too. I go to the Walmart alot and have notice a female betta that's been there I'll be close to a month if not longer. At one time someone had open up a thing of fish food and dump it in her container where it stayed for weeks like this. This is how I've gotten to notice...
  5. Iphone or something else? Advice.

    I'm been wanting to up grade my phone to a smart phone, but my contract isn't up for a renewal until July. But today I was talking to my carrier and they told me I could get an up grade now as long as it wasn't an Iphone. My question is an Iphone worth the wait or should I just get...
  6. How to get rid of Pyramidellid snails

    I have a Pyramidellid snail problem. They came as hitchhikers on some live rock. I have them in both my 150 gallon and 90 gallon reef. My 150 gallon has a six line wrasses that I think if keeping their numbers down. My 90 gallon is a semi agressive tank, so I can't keep a slw in there. I do have 3 really nice...
  7. Anyone here run a DIY surge tank?

    I've been thinking about making one of these out of a 5 gallon bucket and some pvc. It' seems very reliable and fool proof and a very good way to get the wave action you see in nature. I'm just wondering what loud is this going to be. Does anyone here run one? And what do you think of the over all...
  8. Do you push yourself or do you stay in your comfort zone?

    When it comes to fish keeping. Do you push yourself or do you stay in your comfort zone? Do you get fish that are easy to keep or do you push it with fish that you know will be difficult to keep. (I'm not talking about being irresponsible. Like getting fish you know have a high dealth rate)...
  9. Anyone else not having much luck buying a fish?

    Been to the 3 fish shops in the last week to get fish and have come back empty handed. I know it doesn't help that the shop are running low on stock because of the holidays. Nothing has really seem to interest me. I did see a couple of nice fish I would have like, but they look like they had...
  10. Why do I suck so much at fresh water tanks?

    I've been reading a lot about fresh water on here and just realize how much I sucked at fresh water. I just sold a bunch of my fresh water fish and will be taking down those tanks. I've also taken down 4 Betta tanks, since they died. I've relocated a few of my goldfish into my goldfish...
  11. Does anyone have a COWLR?

    I've been bouncing ideas off the wall about what to do with my 125 gallon, if I don't sell it. One option I've thought about is a Coral only tank. Does anyone have a tank like this? I would run at least a T5 and close to 200 pounds of LR. I'd have at a least a 30 gallon sump and a good skimmer also...
  12. T12's vs T5's.

    I have a 90 gallon reef with 4 x T12's. They are rated for 110 watts each. At one time I was considering going to T5's, but my corals are growing like crazy and all is doing very well. I do have a heat issue with this tank around 83 degrees. I'd like to see 78, but that's not going to happen even...

  14. Wanting to get a cockatoo or macaw.

    I've decided to get a macaw or cockatoo. Right now I'm lending towards macaw. No I've never had a bird before. I've always wanted a macaw since I was 10, when I saw one at a local pet shop. Anyone big bird owners out there? Just wanting to get as much information as I can before I get...
  15. Reusing water from reef tank water changes.

    I've been thinking about reusing my water from my reef tank water changes for my other Saltwater tanks. Since the nitrate is 20ppm or lower and nitrites/ammonia are 0ppm when I do the changes I don't see a problem with reusing the water for fish only tanks. This would allow me to do more...
  16. Ever thought about keeping an outdoor reef pond?

    Has anyone ever kept or thought about keeping an outdoor saltwater/reef pond? It may sound crazy, but I've thought about it a time or two. I don't think you would need an expensive light since the sun should be more than enough. You could keep your skimmer and heater in a sump hiding out...
  17. A couple of new fish.

    I have a couple of new fish for my reef. I have a copper banded butterfly. He's on his 3 day in my tank. He's still not taking food, but pecks at the live rock a lot (is this a good sign?). He's very active even at night and looks very healthy and alert. My second fish is a lion and he's...
  18. Do you believe fish profiles?

    Do you belive every thing you read or hear about a fish or do you just completely ingnore it or something in between? I take it as a glide line and I always like to take to people who have the fish in question. I have too many fish that don't act nothing like their profiles to completely...
  19. Got a copperbanded butterfly and v. lionfish today.

    These are two fish I've always wanted. Now I have them. They are both doing well, but I'm a little worried if I can get the CBB to eat. I had them feed him at the store, but he didn't eat. He showed interest, but that's as far as that went. I decided to get him any way, because he's a very...
  20. Help! My 125 gallon is leaking badly.

    My 125 gallon has a huge leak this morning. I'm in the process of draining it. It' looks like the leak will be on the bottom seals. Now my problems are I have to overcrowd my 40 gallon or put some small fish with a very aggressive gold severum. Will my 40 gallon heavily planted 40 gallon hold 8 3"-4" inch blood...
