After surfing craigslist for a few weeks, I finally found a good deal and snagged it.
55g drilled tank, pre-plumbed
Fish Only with Live Rock is the easiest and cheapest and you can migrate to a reef eventually over time by upgrading the lighting and filtration. I started there as well.
You have the tank and...
Did you get your move done? I just moved my 40g across town (20min drive) yeseterday and didn't have any time to plan it out.
The trick is making sure you understand each corals/fishes limits,...
My percula clown fish looks like it's having a seizure every once in a while. He's the bigger one.
Anyone seen this before? I've only ever bought pairs before, but these guys I got for $6 each,...

I was wondering what these are.
The big one has been affectionately named "Plus-Sign" by my girlfriend. He lost a leg and never grew it back. He has been mostly browsing the live rock and...
Will do, with pics, vids, etc =) I stopped the rest of my hobbies to focus on work, this will be my only hobby for the next few years
Thanks all, and that plan does help, gets rid of some of the holes in my plan I was trying to fill with research, saved me a good amount of time. =)

I make about 57k a year, so I'm not too worried about cost if I spread it out properly.
I stopped by Marine Depot in Tampa, that's my main LFS store.
Brought my girlfriend since her oppion on...
The shock that I actually have a successful small SaltWater aquirium is still there. Also with my recent (the last 6 months) additions of corals and how well they are doing, still has me in a state...

I'd imagine it really depends on where you live and how bad the water polution is. I live in Clearwater Florida, and I most definately would not use the saltwater around my area in my tank, but if I...
Two reasons, I've had snails get stranded in the sand and also I think the more coarse substrate might match up with the theme a little more.
Though, I have switched away from Florida Turbo snails...
I strongly suggest this as well. After you are done researching, research some more. There are several ways to setup a Marine tank, and each has it's own personality.
60g is a good size to start...
I know that coraline algea and other things will grow on the columns, but I'm thinking about creating a medeteranian/Roman Column type scene when I move my salt water aquarium to my new apartment.

78F during the winter since the tank heater turns on and 82F during the summer because I keep my AC at around 80F and the pumps, filter, and lighting heats up the tank a couple degrees from room...
Sometimes when a fish is harrassed, it will hide under your rock work. I had a fish almost die because of that before I removed the bully fish. If a fish is harrassed enough, it will die of stress,...
I had to move sadly to say, which sucked badly.
I had to move my saltwater tanks, not enough lay over time to move everything as I should have, so did it in a hurry. Nothing died though,...
For a 55g you can do it 1/2 ass for about $1200 + corals and fish if you don't go the sump route and cut back on the lighting. This will affect how many corals, fish, and what kinds of specifmens...
ahhh, perfect, thank you!
Nah, I have a 10g below my 30g and I'd like to put all my filters down there instead of on my main tank. I'm trying to get a hang over back siphon so that I can skim the surface and run it down to a...
I'm looking for a HoB Sump, anyone know any place to find one on the web? I'm having a hard time tracking one down.
I know I can build it, or buy one locally for like $100, but I'm in a bit of a...
Good point, and I going to make a plan, though I've a few tanks I can fill out first that have already been planned. A couple 75g show tanks for work, then a 55g in my office.
I have co-workers...
Awesome, the basic list is the Exact list I have for my 10g micro!
I took my own approach to algae and the snail problem I had when i brought plants in:
Chinese Algea Eaters = Cure to algea problem ^_^
I use Activated Carbon in my fresh water tank to clear up all the super fine particles since I am running mainly plastic and rock for decor, when curing live rock in the dark, and when removing meds...
I use an AC 30 and an AC50 now too. I like them a lot. Just need to make sure the water stays at a decent level. I have the 30 on my 10g saltwater with a floss filter for mechanical filtration and...
