  1. Hello from Northern California

    My floors are right on the foundation
  2. It has been awhile since I have been here or had any goldfish. I have a 230 gallon Shubunkin tank. Will have some pictures later.

  6. Setting up a saltwater tank

    The 120 would be the best option. As it has deep front to back. Nice footprint for your rock work. I regret doing a 55g. Do some research before you buy anything. Get all your rock at one. Every time you add new rock, it will start the cycle over. Get a good skimmer and set up a refugium with a sock filter. You can go with T5 lighting or LED. Don't need a MH light, those are out date and would require a chiller. If you go with T5 go with a 6-8 bulb set up. If you go with LED, get a reef compatible system, not the one that are sold at Petco/Petsmart. Once you have your rock set, let it cycyle for about 2-3 months before adding anything live. Weekly water changes. Get a good test kit. After 2-3 months start adding your cleaner crew. About 5-6 months you can start adding fish and corals. Don't add to much at once, as this will spike your amonia. After 5-6 months you can drop your water changes to every two weeks. This is exactly what I have done and I had no problems. Best to use RO/DI water, it will reduce the algae breakouts. Also you can hook up a phosban reactor in the refugium.

  12. 55 Gallon Reef

    Its a 55 Tall. 36x15x24
  13. 55 Gallon Reef

    Here is a couple full tank shots. 60 Pounds of Cherry Premo Picked Deco Live Rock (Florida) 60 Pounds Fiji Pink Live Sand 6x39 T5HO Lighting (2 Blue Plus, 2 Purple Plus, 2 Coral Plus. This last shot is of the quick thinking on how to get my light to work. The light was too big for the tank. I didn't want to wait to get a hanging attachment. I glued some wood on the back of the trim. Looks pretty good. Everytime I look at the tank there is something new on the rock. I love it. I will probably pick up some more later.

    Hickers survived and are in the tank. Not sure if they will survive, since its a new set-up.
  15. 55 Gallon Reef

    Finally starting to get my reef tank together, Here are a few pics of what I have now. Just only added the Live Rock. Will get some tank shots after the dust clears. Found a few hitch hickers, Pistol Shrimp, Snails, Starfish, and Hermit Crab
