With the idea of upgrading to a 120gal tank, I think you have a couple of options. First, you could use a smaller fixture and then add a second when you upgrade tanks. The other option would be to...

I think you'll like the rock stacking. I did the same, except I used a 3/8" bit and PVC tubes. No rocks fallen thus far. :D

It looks like the Tunzes work pretty well in you tank. Would you...

Can't wait to see how your tank looks when it's stocked.

Let me know what you think of the flow with the two 6055s. That sounds like a great combination. I'm still deciding what I want to do...

I have one K4 with an MJ in my 55gal. I also have a second K4 from my old tank and I don't think that I'm going to use it in the 55gal because it might be a little too much. I would say two K3...

I wouldn't worry too much about leaving the tank w/o food over weekends. I'd just feed the tank on Fri before leaving and then Sun or Mon when I return.

I'm on the road for long durations at a...

You try something with suction cups. Maybe try some big suction cups to put underneath eggcrate to make a stand for the Mag. The suction cups should absorb some of the vibrations coming from the...

I have an Octopus recirc skimmer with an Eheim return pump. The Octopus does what I need it to do, but the recirc is a little noisy. I can just hear it drawing air, so unless it has a silencer, I...

My chalice has been really hardy. It even survived a tank crash. I lost all my SPS along with a couple of fish. Only survivors were a few LPS (with the chalice being one of them).

I only have a 4 bulb Tek, but it isn't hot unless you're talking about touching the bulbs/reflectors. I like my Tek, but I wish I had more bulbs, so I may be upgrading once the funds are available. ...

I agree with Nismo. I keep all my rock off the side glasses so that I can clean them. I used pvc rods and gorilla glue to keep the rocks stable. I don't have sand, so the last thing I want is a...

I have the smaller 110 recirc and I find that the air intake is a bit noisier than I would like. I'm going to try some kind of silencer, but I wouldn't say that it's quiet.

There is one that's 3ft long, but it has 6 bulbs. You'll just need to double check the width to make sure it fits. If the 46 gal is 12" in width, then this fixture would be a good option.

You could also skip the canopy all together and get a fixture. I had a Teklight on my 92 gal bow and I was able to keep SPS on top and LPS on the bottom. I can't remember the width of the 46 gal,...

It's supposed to be priced under $600, so it'll be about the same price as the AC3. For myself, one of the really big pluses with the Aquatronica and Profilux is the doser. I would really like a...
