    Kessil or orphek for waterbox

    If I were to put a piece of 1/4 inch glass behind the tank as extra support, would that help prevent cracking? Also, how would I mount the piece on the back or would tightening down the mount arm to the 2 pieces, be enough to hold the glass in place?

    Kessil or orphek for waterbox

    I am stuck on which route to go! I am currently setting up a waterbox 60.2 (24 x 24x 18) tank and am going back and forth with which light fixture to go with. I am going to be doing a mixed reef with only a handful of sps at the most. I love the look of the kessils and the compact size of it...

    T5 vs LED questions

    I would love to but the $2,000 price tag for a fixture is a little much for me to cough up. I do love the look it gives tho

    T5 vs LED questions

    Yup I did it....yee ol famous T5 vs led debate. I currently have 3 reef breeder photons over my 150 gallon reef (72 inch by 18 inch wide by 29 inch high). Although I loved these light's at first, they seem to be losing power after a few years of use. I've already replaced one ballast in a...

    Anyone ever ordered off eBay?

    I bought my cross hatch trigger on ebay and a sepetate order, some cornbred frags. Both transactions were awesome and saved a ton of money on there

    tang has ich

    Ive just noticed that the garlic soaking kept their appetite up. The wives tale always worked for me also in getting a few finicky eaters to take a nibble at food.

    tang has ich

    I had a slight ich outbreak about a month ago. I raised the temp to 81degrees to shorten the lifespan of the ich and kept them very well fed with their food soaked in garlic. After a few weeks of it coming and going, everybody is ich free. I have done this multiple times with any small ich...

    Reef Chili ?

    I use it. It's not bad. You do have to soak it for a while so it sinks and doesn't just float on the surface. It is very easy to overfeed so I only use 1 spoonful for my 150.

    Do purple tangs deserve their aggressive reputation?

    Never had any aggression from mine and he was one of the first 3 fish when I upgraded to a 150.

    1/8 or 1/4 netting for screen top

    I use the 1/8 th inch clear screen now because when I used 1/4 inch and one of the strands broke, the hole was double the size and lost a mystery wrasse. It truly doesn't block much light at all

    Purple tang with a sailfin tang

    You may have an issue with those two together due to similar shape and more aggressive of the tang species. In a 125 there's a good chance they will quarrel with each other. I have a purple tang in my 150 (6 ft long) tank and I am too hesitant to try another tang in there
