    90g long acrylic tank

    FS: 60"x18"x18" acrylic tank drilled for closed loop, with stand, canopy and 1600gph Synergy Reef Shadow overflow. The tank does have scratches, but I'll include a buffing kit so you can make it pretty again. 3 hole closed loop allows you to avoid additional pumps in the tank, but can be sealed off should you choose not to use it. Slim overflow box by Synergy was bought new for this tank. If tank doesn't sell, I may part out the overflow. Asking $150 for the lot...located in Happy Valley. Johnson Creek at 205.

    Wtb cerium oxide

    Yeah. I broke down and ordered some. Didn't completely remove the scratches because I'd still be polishing if I did lol

    92g Oregon Reef

    Hello all. After living in Hawaii for the past 5 years, we have moved up to the Pacific Northwest and it's time to get my fingers wet again. I'm a long time reefer, with my last tank being a 225g(5'x3'x2') custom peninsula that was taken down in a rush prior to moving to the middle of the Pacific lol.So, it's time to build another tank, and on a bit of a budget. I've got some items so far, and will list the details as I go. Others I'm waiting on until I find the right deal.THE TANK:I picked up a used acrylic 60"x18"x18" tank I found on Craigslist. For $75 for the tank and stand, I couldn't really pass it up

    Can my floor hold a 190 gallon tank?

    That's not far of a run. I'd just sister the joists. No real need to add supports, though they wouldn't hurt

    92g Oregon Reef

    Sorry for the lack of updates. Been working on getting a different display tank for the last 6 months and finally picked it up last night. It'll be a bit before I get it ready to go, but here's a teaser...also, who has info on buffing out a scratch on a glass tank? I think I saw a conversation awhile back about cesium oxide, but would love more details before I run off and try it lol

    Definitely hydroids. Manual removal and kalk paste is how I dealt with them in the past. They will spread quickly, so don't waste time dealing with them as they'll pester your corals
