    routing / securing RO water tubing

    ya, I have the joist run figured out over to the actual water bins I guess I could do the same, and go up to the joists, then over, and then down to the sink drain. That would allow me to work only with securing to wood joists. I would also need to do the same with the supply water, since...

    routing / securing RO water tubing

    For those of you that have their RODI water tubing set up in their UNFINISHED basement. When it comes to routing the tubing to waste drain, or routing from water source to filters......how do you guys secure the lines to the wall? I have seen some that use wiremold, and others that use the...

    50 or 60 gallon - splitting hairs?

    Order placed......the 80g rimless set up is on it's way. I'll definitely look into the XR15's. Im a ways from that point, but will post up pictures of my progress as it moved forward

    50 or 60 gallon - splitting hairs?

    Luckily, I am able to re-purpose pretty much everything that I had for my 135. I did sell the lights so that's the only thing I will need. I'm a long way off from lights, so maybe that will buy me some time. One light at a time will definitely help the wallet :) I've been looking at those...

    50 or 60 gallon - splitting hairs?

    I am now leaning more towards an 80g due to overall size. It'll still fit where I'd like it to go :) (32 x 24 x 24)

    50 or 60 gallon - splitting hairs?

    Now I think I'm leaning more towards the 80 gallon. (32 x 24 x 24) little deeper than the 50 and 60 gallon tanks. I don't want to go any longer than 32" so this is what I would top out at.

    SC Aquariums Owners Thread

    I am highly considering getting the 88 Gallon cube (32 x 24) Has anyone else purchased this size set up? If so, I have a question about the area below the tank (sump). The stand is 36" high. How mu ch room is left under that sump to do maintenance? Can anyone post a picture of their set up...

    I wanna see your cubes!

    I know this section is for showing off your tank builds / set ups....but rather than me showing mine, I want to see yours. I am debating on getting a 50 or a 66 gallon cube. I have never had one before, but must admit they are sexy as hell! I had a 135 gallon tank, that I just sold, and am...

    50 or 60 gallon - splitting hairs?

    I hear that. Although I only had one reef tank, it was 6ft long, but only 18 deep (front to back, I always wished it were a tad more deeper. I guess same rule would apply here. Either one will fit where I want it to go.......so it comes down to making the move.

    50 or 60 gallon - splitting hairs?

    I am debating between a 24 x 24 cube (50 gallon) or a 32 x 24 "cube" (60 gallon) Volume is so close, but it has a few hundred dollar price difference. The only big difference that I can see that could benefit me is the volume. But we are only talking about 10 gallons. Has anyone had both...

    Maxspect XF250 - in a 50g tank?

    Has anyone ever used a Maxspect Gyre pump - XF250 in a 50 gallon cube? I was wondering, even if i set them at the lowest power possible, if it would still be a bit much for this tank (24 x 24 x 20). What about a 32x24x20? Anyone have experience in doing this? I assume there are others that...

    Can't believe it's been a year already - need floor support?

    The stand that I have is 24" wide, and the tank is 18" wide. The tank sits towards the front of the stand. So that leaves me 6" of space on the back side. How much further passed the tank on the back side, should I leave from the wall to avoid damage? (walls are plaster) Also, in the OP, if...

    Can't believe it's been a year already - need floor support?

    The next thread I will start will be how the hell to get the pvc piping up the wall, in between the exterior/interior plaster wall WITHOUT ruining the floors! (from the photos I attached, there isn't much room)

    Can't believe it's been a year already - need floor support?

    thanks. I know I do have a good amount of time before I'll get water in the tank. But the fun begins. Again. There is more wood mixed into the image I attached, but wasn't sure how much of it helped. You know what, here are some images. This might see what's going on a little better. There...
