    Must-haves for EASY DIY controller?

    Ok well, I hate to be that guy, but is there a wiki or a summary of some sort on this project? The thread is up to thirty pages and I am really interested in what this controller is capable of, but don't have time to sort through all the comments.

    Have you owned a Large tank, experience wanted

    Hermissenda crassicornis(SEA SLUG) and anemones

    I recently spotted a sea slug as a hitch hiker, very beautiful and only about 1/4" long. We have identified it as a "Hermissenda crassicornis".

Two tangs, a pair of clowns, pair of damsels, gbta and a sebae anemone, two shrimp, and various, sps and lps. When I first started this tank I was testing every other day, and doing weekly water...

    New House, New Tank!!! 300 Begins

    How tough is it to clean acrylic, will a magnet be sufficient or scrub pad? I have to use a metal scraper to get the coraline off of my current tank, but i know that I have to be more delicate with an acrylic tank.

    New House, New Tank!!! 300 Begins

    I agree, bigger is better, but it was hard enough to get the wife's vote to let me punch a hole in the wall of a new house...
