Having a really hard time deciding which tank will be best. I want to plan this setup to be well thought out and cohesive before I start making any purchases -- am thinking end of summer will be the earliest I'll start buying. My first tank is the Fluval 13.5g (started this February) and it's going strong & have a 2.5g pico as well. Quite new to the hobby, and yes, already obsessed! Looking in the 40-65g range for size -- Red Sea or Waterbox both *seem* to be the top contenders in both size categories. I do love Innovative Marine tanks -- but seems a better deal to go with RS or Waterbox since they come with cabinet & sump. For setup and stocking, I'm thinking... SPS dominant, but not exclusive NanoBox duo or double duo, if needed I'd like to have a tank that's plumbed for a sump in cabinet & would like to have a refugium in sump for pod population Predrilled tank... I may be handy, but drilling glass & gluing plumbing is a nope for me Fish & equipment specific planning is TBD, dependent upon which tank I decide on Questions haunting me in the dead of night... Red Sea tank glass is so sexy. You know it, I know it, we all know it -- but what are people's impression of Waterbox tank glass in comparison? Generally, is one considered better than the other and why (beyond "branding")? Are there other tanks I should be considering that I just don't know about? Quick tank specs... Red Sea Reefer 170 43g total volume (34g display) 24.5"x20"x20" Waterbox Marine 45.2 44.3g total volume (29.6g display) 24"x18"x18" Red Sea Reefer 250 (rectangular shape) 65g total volume (54g display) 35.5"x21"x20" Waterbox Marine 60.2 (cubed shape) 61.8 total volume (39.8g display) 24"x24"x18" Other tanks I should consider? Thoughts, advice & tips & tricks appreciated 😬
Hi everyone! I’m having an issue with my tank.. the water is pretty cloudy and I’m not sure what the issue could be. I recently bought an aquatop cps-1 power head for my nuvo fusion 10 tank. Right now I only have some live rock and dry rock with 2 clowns, 1 bicolor goby, 8 blue leg hermits, and 5 snails. The power head was so strong it was kicking up with sand and making a sand storm. It’s a 256 gph power head. Im also not happy with the current aquascaping I currently have, what can I do about that? Do I even need the power head? Should I get a smaller one? I was also curious if I should do a complete start over on the tank. I have 10 gallons of water ready for the tank and a bottle of bio-spera as well. Any suggestions on what I do? If I do end up redoing the water, etc. What do I do with my fish? Thanks!
