    New Red Sea 160 gallon tank.

    When my old tank cracked I threw what survived it in my sump. I then re-routed the water supply line that went to my tank to the 1st stage of my sump and it kept running. When I set up my new Red Sea tank I just routed the supply back to my new tank. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Rimmless or Euro-Braced Having a new tank made. Cant decide between: 1. Rimless & 2. Euro-braced Never had a big tank Rimless. 1. Does water slosh over top when cleaning glass with magnet? 2. Do the lights glare in your eyes? 3. How do you vent all the evaporation? Getting a 96"X36"X 24"to 27". So who likes rimless Who likes eurobraced And why? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Rimless VS Euro-braced?

    Thanks Nate. I'm leaning that way. My system will evaporate 15 gallons a day and I want a vented canopy. Euro-braced is stronger and less messy when cleaning. Tank can be taller with same thickness glass than Rimless.
  10. I'm right there with ya.
  11. 5 Months after setting up my 250 Gallon Marineland deep-dimension tank and its leaking from the bottom seal in the middle of the front of the tank. My friend has a 200 Gallon deep-dimension tank and its also leaking on the too left side. Tore it down and moved live-stock to a spare tank in my down stairs Mechanical Room.

  12. No roller filter yet. My piece-of-crap DD Marineland Tank started leaking. Getting a Reef Savvy Tank made. 96x36x24-27. The detritus tank does not catch as much stuff as I thought it would. I think I need some baffles in it to slow water flow.
  13. Hi all! I'm a old fat guy that just finished hand digging 35 cubic yards of dirt (3 dump-truck loads) from under my house in the crawl-space to have room for a Sump/Mechanical room for my tank. I know with that much digging In tight places I could of dug out of almost any Prison. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. Thanks Shark. I had a 300 gallon 24x96x30 Plex tank made by US Aquarium blow a seam AS I WAS LOOKING at it 15 or so years ago on Christmas morning. Emptied on the floor in about a 1/2 hr but I got most livestock out alive. Hopefully 3rd times the charm.
  15. Yes. They said they would write me a check for what I paid for it. I'm pretty sure I will have Reef Savey build me a tank. They are expensive but I'm confident the workmanship will be excellent. Small shop with pride in their work. Never heard of any of there tanks ever leaking. Have any of you? The owner said he gets calls almost weekly about Marineland Deep Dimension Tanks leaking and breaking. The Marineland DD design is flawed IMO due to the entire bottom plate being supported by the perimeter frame only.
  16. Thanks for the support. I'll just have to up-grade!

    Do Carpets Spawn?

    What the......I walked by my tank and the water was all cloudy. Ran down to my sump room and all the water was crystal clear. Went back upstairs and the fish were eating a milky white substance that was oozing out of the mouth of my Carpet Anemone. The carpet looks very healthy. Does anyone know what is going on????

  20. I couldn't be more happy with the way this little micro-water-treatment plant works. Unbelievable water quality and very low maintenance. STAGE: 1 STAGE: 2 STAGE: 3 STAGE: 4 STAGE: 5 STAGE: 0 (Oops RODI should of gone 1st) Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  21. My Tuxedo Urchin stole a clump of Polyps. Guess it thinks they are stylish. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  22. No substrate. I tie them with streatchy plant tie and just let the tips of roots touch the water so I can train the root system to be tall and thick Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  23. Thanks Shark re roller filter. I'm getting the real one from Europe. No motor etc.
