    100G SPS Reef - Where do I go from here?

    So the tank is nearly 3 years old? Did the LR come with coralline on it? My current tank is almost a year old and I have possibly double on my glass, powerheads, etc.... My rocks are covered in green coralline, only purple dots all over them. Tank looks great though. Any pics of what's below?

    Mark's 150 gallon

    I currently run leds only and have almost took advantage of a t5 retro fixture that has 4 t5s and would incorporate my current fixtures for a hybrid. Didn't pull the trigger just because I'm cheap but still debating it. Been debating adding the t5s or one 250w halide in between the leds. Just...

    Mark's 150 gallon

    I didn't go through the whole post but I was reading the first few pages where you were talking about not getting the color, did the t5 fixture change that or just maturity over time.... Just wondering. Beautiful tank btw.

    Herbie style glass holes overflow???

    So if I get the 1500gph overlfow from glass holes and drill it myself. Can I do Herbie style with this. My other forum has brought up that the overflow box from glass holes is not big enough to use elbow inside of it to achieve the herbie style overflow... Wondering if there is another way to...

    Glass holes overflow or buy reef ready tank?

    I want to do herbie style and hopefully I can use elbows inside the overflow to make one the main and the other emergency. Hopefully I'll have enough room in there to use elbows.

    Glass holes overflow or buy reef ready tank?

    So which option is the most efficient/safest way? I have a 75gal tank I was gonna drill but tempted to just buy a reef ready 75gal.... If I still myself, was gonna do the 1500 glass holes over flow in the center of the back wall with returns on each end of the back wall of the tank. But if I buy...

    cyno in refugium

    Had a small area of cyno on my sand bed. I was feeding twice a day, cut down to once a day and no algae anyway in tank... But my refugium now has some cyno in it? I have Fiji miracle mud, chaeto, and 2 mangroves in there. Run my light 24hrs a day. What could be causing this?

    Algae Issue

    When I mentioned all water parameters test fine, that included phosphates. Using api and it tests 0. But for algae to grow there has to be some phosphates. I will try to get a pic up today. But I don't know how to post a pic on here.
