  1. Fluval M-60, M-90 Question

    I have the Fluval M60, it did come with the stand. Did not use it, built my own....I am using the valve for water changes...super easy. Pics attached, I left the stand open underneath, the valve is on right side of tank.

  10. My DIY tank stand

    Got a little work done on my tank stand this past weekend. This is going to house a Fluval M60 and on the right side will be a few shelves. Have to thank my wife, she is very creative and came up with idea. Will update as I get more done.
  11. IceCap 3k Gyre

    Anyone using one of these? Still looking at powerheads for my setup, was thinking about the IceCap. The tank it will go in is a Fluval M60 (24x16x16). Would this be enough flow, or would it be better to go with more traditional style powerhead. Thanks for your input.

    I immediately thought of Office Space....
  13. Starting Fluval M60

    Hello all. I have been a long time lurker here on Nano Reef. Got a good deal on a Fluval M60 a couple weeks ago at my LFS, in the process of gathering equipment for it now. Cant wait to get it setup, however I am going to practice patience. Last attempt at reef keeping I jumped in fast and didn't turn out so well, also was still active in the Navy, so a lot of relying upon the wife. Retired from navy now but work a regular 9-5, so more time. I do have a 60 cube setup right now, fish only. Hoping to benefit from the wealth of knowledge available here.
  14. lighting for a 45 gallon ?

    Thank both of you....I dont know why I would go cheat myself out of MH's either....Metal halides for me
  15. lighting for a 45 gallon ?

    Will be setting up a 45 gallon soon and was wondering what would be the most cost effective lighting for corals. I want to have a variety of corals, right now I have a Biocube 14 and am limited to my selection, would like to not be limited on the 45. It is 36 inches long, 12 inches deep, and 24 inches tall. Contemplating Metal Halides but the price is scary. Is there an alternative to these that will support just as well. Thanks...Chris
