  1. My 125 Gallon is already a so-called all-in-one system, as it lacks a sump. But it also lacks any extra filtration...no skimmer, no filter to run carbon, etc. So far it's been just live rock, LED lights and as much flow as I can give it. This 125 was an upgrade itself almost a year ago. I originally (11-ish years ago) had a 37 gallon+sump system for SPS...no fish. After a few years I added a second display (50 Gallon) to that system for more coral space. About a year ago all of the contents from both tanks were consolidated to the 125. I did have to add new lights to accommodate the increased tank length. The old sump and skimmer along with a little rock and the original sand bed were left behind. I'm upgrading now for a few reasons. I'd like to have the aeration from running a skimmer again. I have more algae growing that I have historically and I think corals are suffering from the day/night pH/oxygen swings. I'd like the tank to get a little better flow from a lot fewer pumps. Currently there's a mix of six smaller Tunze powerheads. I'm also upgrading the (still new) lights, but mostly for the superior form-factor. I like having excellent access to the tank for maintenance and the current lights are large for the space. OLD (all gear used at various times and listed roughly in order, ending with the most recent) Lights: Coralife 2x 150 watt halide Radium, Ecoxotic, DIY, Maxspect Razor, Ocean Revive Flow: Hydor Flo's, Hydor Korallia Gen 1 model 3 and 4, Seio Prop pump, Ecotech Vortech Gen 1 or 2, Tunze 6045 multiple generations Return Pump: Quiet One 2200 (Italian), Mag 7, Quiet One 4000 (Chinese) Skimmer: Oceanic "Plus Series" Model 6 (classic!!), AquaC EV-90, Tunze 9410 NEW Lights: Three Kessil A360x's Flow: Two Tunze 6105's Skimmer: Tunze 9012 Also gaining a Tunze Osmolator ATO and Multifilter in the upgrade. More info once I have the gear installed.

    5 gallon pico reef +some

    It’s about time... Ive grown up with animals, specifically cats, dogs anddddd FISH! My family started with the obvious goldfish from a carnival. Suddenly that turned into a 20 gallon freshwater tank. It’s had mollies, sharks, tetras, who knows what else (honestly i never loveeeed it because freshwater fish are a little bland). Anyway because I live on the coast, i have an extreme love for the ocean so i decided it’s time to up my freshwater tank and get a reef tank. Now i’ll be real, i’m using all my dads money so i tried doing everything at a low cost. I’ve had this reef tank for many 2 months now and short as that may sound, ive learned a lot. and yes saltwater tanks are way harder than freshwater. i never had anyyyy problems with my freshies. anyway i’ll get into what i purchased on my first trip to the tropical store. First trip/ necessities i first purchased a 5 gallon tank. long rather than square. it surprisingly hold way more than i would have expected. i always read or hear about how 5 gallons shouldn’t hold many creatures but mine seem to love it. i got 6 pieces of live rock (something i didn’t know beforehand was dip it in revive, ill get into it below) when choosing these make sure to get multi sized ones and it’s better to have small but more than one big one unless that’s the style you’re going for. these help start up the process of setting up your tank. yeah i don’t know how to explain it but it like gets bacteria and lil microbes around in the water making it homier does your fish. get some sand. when i bought mine i think it was called “live sand”? they suggested white but looking at my tank now, i think black would look really cool. at your local shop you should be able to find saltwater by the gallons. this is easier than buying a mix. once you set up the tank, sand, rock and water, you’ll want to let the filter run for a week. i was hesitant about this part because I WANT MY FISH NOW buttt in the long run it’s better for your fishies n invertebrates sooo it’s a must. to go along with the sand and live rock, i would suggest just adding little things, i went to the beach and got some shells, rocks, etc. if you live in the middle of nowhere then i’m sure a local fish store sells hermit crab shells which can be used for decor. or even the dollar store. thats everything you need for the first trip to za store. finally the fishies when buying my first first set of creatures I bought a pajama cardinal and a purple linckia starfish. i was hoping the starfish would work as good enough of a cleanup crew but it wasn’t and unfortunately died. i was devastated. The sole reason i bought a tank was a for a star but hey, lesson learned and next time i will take the best care of my star. Clean up crew 🤤 from my mistake, i suggest getting a solid clean up crew to being with. i got a monster trochus snail. he’s an absolute unit and my 4 tegula snails like to ride on him sometimes. it’s hilarious to watch him flick them off. these 5 bad boys get the job done! to tie up my cleanup crew, we have 2 red legged hermit crabs. they’re the fiery red ones not the scarlett ones. adorable to watch them pick up singular pieces of sand and clean them off. lets add a lil more so here’s the list so far *rip starfish* one pj cardinal 5 snails 2 crabs pretty plain as you can read soo i got another pj cardinal. why? i don’t know. honestly they don’t do much. oh also i think my shop only has female because all their dorsal fins are short. which sucks because i want babies. to add to those mellow girls, i got a pretty clown fish. he’s cute n like to nibble my finger when i’m being calm. he also. LOVES food so i have to be sure that the cardinals get their fair share. it’s pretty easy to selectively feed them. many people see food loving fish as aggressive and that’s why you can’t put certain fish with certain fish but really if you give them extra love, it’ll work out ( what a cliche) to add some flare to my tank, i got 2 soft corals and one hard coral corals are expensive so i’m hoping these $10-20 frags grow quickly. today I got a purple dottyback, he loves hiding under rocks and kind of plays hide n seem with me. FOOD all i can say is, frozen shrimp. you can find it at the shop. so much better than flakes. my parents have almost eaten it on multiple occasions because it’s just thAt real. I forgot to talk about ReVive and it’s importance so my starfish has a chunk missing and i’m like welp this guys done for, but i look at ways to heal sick starfish anyway. i go on youtube and i see this starfish that looks just like mine! fleshy muscusy stuff coming out of it. in the video literally all they said was “this is a sick starfish! dip it in revive” i go crazy looking for revive but turns out it’s a coral dip? it did help my starfish but i think it was past saving. now the reason i think it’s important is because no one told me i should be dipping my live rock and coral in this stuff. there was so much weird algae bacteria stuff that first got in my tank and these are called HITCHHIKERS! revive gets rid of them. now i can talk about my freshy boyssss i love marine tanks but freshwater tanks are beautiful, the leafy green is just like fairyland to me. So in my family’s 20 gallon tank, there are mollies which had babies, 15 of them! the males will eat the babies so i transferred them to their own special tank. heres how i set it up! i got a 3 gallon acrylic tank from petco with a filter and so many colors of lights. for a week or so they were in a plastic fish bowl with an airpump so this was quite the upgrade. i wasn’t a fan of acrylic because glass just seems better but i actually love it??! its a pentagon so i can see through everywhere and it’s nice because with glass there would be a reflection but on the acrylic i can see all the way through it to my other tank. i think my fish can see each other too because i catch them staring at each other. acrylic is also easier to wipe down than glass, leaves no streaks or anything the best part about fresh tanks... the plants! i have no idea the types of plants i have but i have a moss globe, some patches of rica moss, floating water lettuce, and a long potted plant. my guppies love it in here and they love being pet and played with. that’s my favorite thing about mollies, they love attention. rare for a fish. because there are plants and light there is bound to be algae so i got two snail, one tiny horned black and red one and one giant gold one. i don’t know the names. with fresh tanks, i care more about the plants than creatures 🤭 i love how i have a salty tank and a leafy tank, now i want another tank (i want like a room full of tanks) with half water half earth, i think it’s called a palendram ANYWAYYSSSSS i just love my creature and this website because it’s helped me sooo much so feel free to comment or suggest creatures or decor for me and my existing or soon to be existing tanks. i tried uploading my sick videos of my moving invertebrates and such but they’re too big so 🤕😓

    New tank questions

    Hi everyone, New to the hobby and just setup my biocube 16 earlier this week. Used the natures ocean live sand and got 15lbs of cured live rock from my LFS. My tank is currently cycling. I got a 480 GPH powerhead from a friend and installed that yesterday. I had to reposition it numerous times due to it pushing my sand around but, finally found a spot that it does not disturb anything. I do plan on getting corals at some point. Along with the return pump would this be too much flow for my tank? I also feel like I have a lot of live rock in my tank. I can access the sides and back with my gravel vacuum. Does my live rock setup look okay for when I get coral? I'm particularly worried about being able to get anything on the top piece of live rock or is that enough room? Any opinions are appreciated because I am overthinking this 😂 thank you for your time!
  4. I was wondering If it would be possible to use inert pigments when making concrete live rock, or something like activated charcoal to give it a deep black color. Maybe titanium oxide for a bright white, though I think there's some research that it's also harmful. I've heard of using purple PVC primer for a coralline effect. My main intent here is to make a frag plug mold with different color frag plates. Has anyone tried this or know of anything safe to use?
  5. Is "Going Slow" the most controversial reefing topic? I could be wrong, but I presume everyone has heard the old reefer's motto: "Nothing good happens fast in a reef tank." I don't know who said it first*, but they were dead on. So how is it that, regardless of experience or circumstance, we all still seem to have tanks that are already full of fish (and usually corals too) within six months or a year when we are newbs? And why is it that when the "go slow" thing is brought up that we all seem to think we're going as slow as possible "because I see everyone else doing it this way"? Lastly, why is it that we don't connect our poor results (sick fish, etc) up with our disregard of this rule? I don't get it. Do you? I know there are folks who do go slow...you are exceptions that prove the rule. It would be great if some of you would share your experiences. * The saying predates me, BTW, and I "got in" around 1990.
  6. Hi everyone, My name is Baptiste, i’ve been in freshwater aquarium since a while now and wanting to start a pico reef, i heard this is not ideal to start with a pico but as i had a Dymax iq5 i wanted to give a try :). Before that i’ve been researching a lot, watching videos, reading books and forum ... I bought a RODI filter set it up and tried it, all good. Come the time to buy sand, live rocks and salt. So i went to the nearest store (30mins drive) and bought all. When i came back home, i realised i forgot to buy salt so i decided to go back quickly but took time. My live rocks were in a bag closed at home without water. When back home, i started setup everything but took me at least 2h. So basically the live rocks were sitting during 3-3.5h in bag without water. I setup the aquarium, water at 1.025 ppm salinity, temperature 26degrees and i have a small protein skimmer wich i start it. 2 Days after, the water got very cloudy and the aquarium was smelling really bad like rotten eggs . A lot of worms and little shrimps died from the rocks. i’ve searched online to fix it and saw i needed to cure the live rocks to eliminate the died and start again the cycle. I cured it in a bucket closed with a pump during one week and after one week rocks were not smelling anymore and water was pretty clear. I’ve decided then to start again the cycle and put everything back in the aquarium. So here we are, it’s been 4 days since i’ve started again and my live rocks doesn’t look normal ... Again i’m a beginner so maybe everything is ok but i haven’t seen anything like that on internet ... i’ve done 1 water test and got : 1.0 ppm Ammonia 0.25 ppm Nitrite 0 ppm Nitrate 8.2 PH I haven’t done any other test as i don’t think it matters now ... Do you think my live rocks are dead and will never cycle ? Should i buy new one or wait and see ? Thanks for your advices :) Baptiste Ps: Sorry for the picture not the right side :/

    Too much love rock in my aquascape?

    Hi all, I am starting a brand new nano Reef in a fluval Evo 13.5. I have never done a salt water tank so this is a new experience and I could definitely use any and all help. I would like to ask all of your opinions on the aquascape I made. It is about 11-12 lbs of live rock. I am wondering if it is too much as a family member said it was a little busy. I was wondering if I should remove the brown portion on the tail end on the right and just leave the arch? Thanks for any and all advice!

    New vs aged live rock

    I know aged live rock is better than new but why? I have about 40 pounds of 3 year old rock and I’m looking to upgrade to a bigger tank and use all dry rock. Would I be missing out on a lot of benefits my aged rock has to offer?

    Used live rock concern

    Hello to everyone! I’m a beginner to saltwater tanks and nano reefs. Please excuse if I don’t use the correct terms as I’m still learning much about this beautiful hobby. ☺️I purchased my JNJ Nano Cube DX 12 gl. from my local aquarium. Guy was moving store locations so he gave me a great deal on tank and threw in 3 pieces of used dried live rock. Threw the rocks in distilled water the same day and let them sit overnight. The following morning I noticed little polyps little sponges growing on all the rocks. I’m on day 3 of my cycling and the polyps looking things have multiplied. I’ll show some pictures. Again I’m a beginner, should I be concerned? As I’m hoping to start a healthy nano reef tank. Thanks again!

    Live rubble in sump

    My fluval evo 13.5g has a three part sump with skimmer,filter media,heater/return pump. Because the nano skimmer only occupies the top half of its section there's a void below which I'm considering filling with live rock rubble to aid biological filtration. However as its pretty much the first section the incoming water hits i'm worried it will be a dirt trap, which won't get washed as filter media would. Will this cause more problems than its worth? Be glad of any opinions 🙂
  11. They came on my live rock. Are they problematic? If not, how do I keep them alive? Are they going to die as my tank cycles? Thanks!!
  12. I have finally assembled almost everything I need to start my first salt water tank (Biocube 32), other than a bucket and auxiliary heater for mixing which i'll get today, and even though i'm sure this sounds like a pretty stupid question, my biggest quandary is figuring out how to add water to the tank initially. Ideally I would want to add rock, sand, and then water, but i'm not 100% percent sure I will be able to have enough water already mixed in another container to pour all of it in at once. My next idea was to add the dry rock, then most of the water, then add the live sand and live rock, and finally top it off with a little more water to make sure it's completely full. I want to make sure the live rock doesn't have time to dry out and that it is added to water which is around 78 degrees Fahrenheit so there isn't a significant die off. Anyway, i'm not sure if i'm making any sense, and there is a good chance I am making this way more complicated than it needs to be, but i'm just curious how other people have initially set up their aquarium, and would certainly appreciate advice and tips.

    Setting up my Biocube 32

    Hello, I plan on setting up my first salt water tank hopefully this coming weekend, and just wanted some advice. First of all, obviously i'll have to have all the equipment assembled and in place first, the main thing i'm unsure about is what order to add the rock, sand and water. My plan is to put a few pieces of dry rock down first to act as a base layer, then add live rock stacked on top, then live sand around it, and then the water. Would this work? I'm curious how other people have done it. Also, I had a few more miscellaneous questions. 1. Are there any general tips of aquascaping for a beginner? 2. I plan on adding corals eventually, so is there a specific way to arrange the rock to make that easier? 3. What is the best way to start the cycling process? Iv'e heard that some people put part of a raw shrimp in the tank, or is ghost feeding enough?
  14. i got a 55g tank with 30 pounds of Live Rock and i knew it was not enough so i plan to go get more to put in my tank but i have living thing in it like anemones, coral frags, A school of Chromis, Damselfish,tomato clown, 2 Saddleback clowns, 2 emerald crabs, 8 Blue legged hermits, a cleaner wrasse, a bi-color Blenny, a fire shrimp and skunk cleaner shrimp i don't want to risk killing anything so i want to know if i'ts safe to put live rock directly in the tank with my livestock in it i know it comes with the risk of falling rocks but i'm being extra careful on handling and them into the water is there any warnings/tips i might want to know before doing this?

    ID - What could this be?

    Hi guys, I have 2 month old Fluval Evo with live rock, live sand, CUC and a couple of clowns (literally and metaphorically). I was taking a look at the tank this morning and spotted something I hadn't seen before. It appears to be in a tiny white spiral like shell or body with a red 'head' protruding with lots of small appendages. When any of the crabs come near it he will retract then emerge again a minute later. The head almost looks a little feather duster like to me but he appears to be rooted to the live rock. I've added a couple of pictures, one retracted and another when he's out. I apologize for the poor quality of the 'out' picture but it's pretty far back in the tank and this thing is tiny (Biro tip sized) Any help will be greatly appreciated.

    Help! What is this?

    I have two of these in my tank. Unfortunetly, I was unable to upload a video I had taken but, I’ll try to explain it best I can. a dark mouth comes out of the white and casts a web. It looks like it “reels” in the web with its mouth. I’m assuming it does this to catch food in the water. The white seems to be just a shell. It never moves and seems like it’s the same size. Although, it was not there when I first got my live rock. Any ideas on what it could be?

    Live Rock Online

    Has anyone had a really good experience ordering live rock from an online vendor? I found a few in Florida that ship Gulf rock, but I’m nervous ordering sight unseen. I’ve been very unimpressed with the selection in the few fish shops local to me.

    Help choosing substrate?

    Hello everyone, I’m upgrading from my 15 gallon column tank to a 36 gallon. In my 15 gallon I had live aragonite sand, but I could never clean the sand correctly and it got orange and brown and truly disgusting looking. It was really difficult to clean. I’ve decided I think I’m going to try the crushed coral this time but I need some help with my decision. #1, I need to know if I’m making the right decision by getting the crushed coral instead of the sand. If im making a bad decision by switching to crushed coral, is there an easier way to clean the sand without it going absolutely everywhere, clouding your tank, and hiding in between the rock? I tried a siphoner, I tried a net, I even tried grabbing it with my bare hands. Nothing seemed to work. The pellets just stayed there or hid deeper into the sand. They’re 1mm sinking pellets if that helps. #2, I’m wondering which of these crushed corals are better, regardless of their price or value for the price. Just quality. First Option // Second Option #3 Any advice for switching and upgrading is much appreciated!! Thanks in advance
  21. Hey guys, I'm getting ready to start my first nano reef. It's been slow goings but I'm finally getting to the point where I can start adding water. I went to petco over the weekend and purchased a piece of their aquacultured live rock from one of their fish tanks. I'm using all reefcleaners dry rock for my build and thought in addition to Caribsea Live sand and Bio-Spira to start my bio-filter I'd use a small piece to seed my dry rock for bio-diversity and onnhe off chance it could help jump start coralline algea. Well I didn't don't get my tank ready when I expected I would. Stupid things like having doubts about tank placement and removing the egg crate after getting my aqua-scape exactly how I wanted it and then placing eggcrate just below where there's rock delayed my efforts. In that time (I got it Saturday) it has sat in a petco fish bag. Is this rock useless for that purpose now? Today I moved it to a small bucket of freshly made saltwater and a powerhead. But worried that it's too little too late? I don't want to sabotage my new tank in an effort to jumpstart it. So if it's useless for seeding now, I'll just let it dry out. The rock looks cool with different shades of coralline. It doesn't really smell like any thing now or when I got it. any help or insight is greatly appreciated. I'm just learning all this stuff.

    Added live reef rock, ammonia flew up?

    Hello, I’m cycling my tank and I had 3 pieces of dry rock in it before, but i decided to swap those out for about 16 pounds live reef rock yesterday. My ammonia was at 2 ppm yesterday and I’m testing it today and it’s giving me results of 4-8 ppm. I’m freaking out because I have 2 stomatella snails in there that came as hitchhikers on my rock, but I’ve grown to love them already and I don’t want anything bad to happen to them. Can adding live reef rock increase the ammonia? Will my snails be okay? I thought adding the live rock that already had the bacteria would decrease the ammonia faster. Please help!! Picture of my tank for reference. (p.s I do have some rock residue on the bottom from them slightly chipping while I was arranging them. Might sound dumb but could it be that that's increasing the ammonia?)
  23. Hi guys, I just bought my first set of live rock and when I got home I realized I got some hitchhikers. I have no idea what they are and I can’t find them on google. Can someone tell me if they’ve ever seen them before, what they’re called, what they eat, etc? Anything would help. I actually love the little guys and I want to make sure they’re safe. Also, I’m actually in the process of cycling my tank. Ammonia’s currently at 2 ppm, and salinity is at 1.022. Is this okay for them? Included picture and here’s a link to a video I took (https://streamable.com/83shb). Thanks in advance.

    Something in my New Live Rock

    So I just started a new saltwater tank. 32 gallon Biocube. I purchased live rock yesterday and this morning I can down and saw a “growth” coming from a cavity on the rock. It seems alive and retreats like a turtle head when scared. I can’t figure out what it is. Can anyone help please?????

    Fast Rock ?

    I am starting out my first nano "reef" and want to know what type of rock would be ideal for a quicker setup. Obviously the tank still needs to cycle; however, I would like a rock that will not need to be cured for a long time. I don't plan on putting coral into the tank initially, FOWLR to begin. Having the rock be dry would be fine by me. The options I have seen are the following: Reef saver rock from BRS, Life rock from CaribSea, and Walt Smith Pukani Live Rock - Cured / Cleaned from Premium aquatics. I also was looking at basic caribsea base rock as an option. I just want to be able to set up the tank as fast and hassle free as possible. With the live sand helping a lot in getting bacteria to begin in the tank. I also will use bio spira to help kickstart the tank as well. So far I will be setting it up in a 20 gallon hex tank. Using ocean direct live sand, a hob filter I have laying around (rated for 40g), and some cheap pumps. I plan on stocking with: 2 clowns, a clown goby, and a firefish (and some snails and hermits)
