  1. 95 gallon Cube Display Tank with Custom Stand

    I'm actually going to be using some 1/8'' acrylic to separate things out. The small tank is for some breeder Darwinian Island clowns, and the rest will be sectioned off for a skimmer and return area.

  3. I recently obtained a 95-gallon cube display tank, after my brand new 75-gallon exploded while drilling the drain hole. Anyways, I finished setting up the new tank build this evening and wanted to share it with you all. The stand measures at 40x31x37 and was constructed out of fir. I also used deck screws all around and metal supports at the corners for stability. Soon I'll go around the outsides with a nice cedar trim, and put curtains on the sides that I left open for sump access. For now, since the majority of the stand is complete, all I need to do is finish adding water, and then wait for the s*** and sand to settle. Then I'll be taking pictures of what really matters! Cheers! Michael
  4. Soo my 75gal broke...

    I was too! But then I got the 75 because it was less money. Little did I know haha
  5. Soo my 75gal broke...

    So my 75gal (birthday present) broke while we were drilling the hole. For some that would be the worst day ever. But with friends like TPA, I was about to turn my frown upside down. So hello to the new to me 93gal cube, and the other stuff. Thanks again, Garrett @ThePremiumAquarium More pictures to come. Plus custom stand being built tomorrow!
  6. Birthday time

    Last time I had a budget, I ended up with 2x 300gal Rubbermaid ponds and 1800lbs of rock.
  7. Birthday time

    Budgets and I, and this hobby are like an elevator in a 1 story house. I just don't set one anymore. Also, I decided after this long 2 weeks, that I'm going to spend the birthday money on a 95gal cube, and look into building/programming an t5/led light. Cheers!

    Thanks for the information everyone!
  9. Birthday time

    So.. my birthday is Monday and my wife has complained that I haven't given her ideas. I'm pretty interested in LED lights since I'm still using a 600w MH. Any suggestions? what do you/would you use for a 50gal coral reef tank, that has lots of cool colors too display? I want to do lots of LPS/SPS and only about 3 smaller fish. Cheers, Michael

    Here's the rock I grabbed to start my new build 2 weeks ago. 2 weeks back under light with tigerpods and 3 small seed rock pieces.

    Another option that worked well for me in the past was going down to a fish store and asking for some of their dirty filter socks. Flip them inside and put em in your tank. Just make sure you're checking the sock for unwanted hitch-hikers. Mandarins aren't really that difficult to care for since your copepod population will grow quickly if you seed it well. I really just love those little guys, so I'm an avid pusher of mandarins.
  12. Copepods

    grab some tiger pods pretty inexpensive way to seed your rock.
  13. 50gal Tall & Slender

    Some more of the build, with the stand... Good ole concrete blocks
  14. 50gal Tall & Slender

    Hey, ya'll! Here's my new tank, it's been a couple years since my last tank (it was too big). So now I'm just doing a tiny 50gal tall and slender with a 40galsump. I have about 100lbs of rock +/-, some awesome aragonite, and using 1 pump to the 50, and with gravity fed return to the 40. It only has a couple little clowns, a rainbow rose bubble, and the big (not really) chomper to keep a lookout. And now the pics!
