Aww this tank is a mighty fine well thought out build. Gonna miss this tank. What happen tj


I moved from Ontario to British Colombia for 6 months and didn't trust anyone to keep it in good shape, so instead I sold it.

I will start another tank one of these days.

:blush: stop flirtin' or I might cross the border.

Looks like people are keeping yellow tangs and blue tangs and butterfly fish with ease... Great to see.

Why is it that the cutest pics and videos always have clowns frolicking in a RBTA?

I've been around. Divorce is hard on a tank. I would call it a crash, more like a slow decay, but my cube got overrun with algae and fireworms. I've had 40 breeder aspirations for some time now, and I figured it was the easiest move everything into an already running setup.

Nice tanks people,

   Hopefully I'll be putting up my 25 soon in a thread, and I'll be joining you after the next $1/1G sale...  Thanks for all the great inspirational pics...


Please disregard anything in the above post, the party making said post should keep his mouth shut, as he definitely doesn't know what he's talking about, ask his WIFE...

Update, I think I'll be joining you soon, as I just got a 36x18x19h tank used from LFS... It's like a 40b but a little taller... still waiting on the $1/1Gal. sale, can never have enough tanks...LOL  kicking myself for giving the 20L away a month or so ago (right before I decided to start a SW tank...LOL) 

 

Anyways, I'll be posting a thread for the 25, with plans and questions about setting up the 50... in the beginners section.... I'll try to remember to come back here and post a link to the thread...

Lots of people run 40 breeders without sumps but I would recomend a HOB skimmer.
