Hi, I am Jimmy. I'm fairly new to the hobby. I have an EVO 13.5. You can see a pic of the tank in my profile. Just wondering if anyone had any suggestions or changes they would make with what I have going on.

Thanks

Introducing myself. I’ve been keeping a 30 gallon mixed reef tank for just over a year and am upgrading to a Redsea Reefer XL425 which is being delivered next week. Looking forward to using the knowledge here to help make the new build successful.

To answer your questions correctly & provide information, something more specific than needing help is required. Make the list short & concise, get your answers then ask another set of questions please.

Hello Everyone, my name is Richard and years ago I had a 500-gallon reef tank and really enjoyed it until we had to move and the tank had to go. I am now getting ready to start a new 210-gallon tank and was recommended to this forum.

Hey fellow reefers. Planning on getting my feet wet in the saltwater realm for the first time. Wife has had salt before, just here to further educate myself before taking the plunge. Have had several successful freshwater tanks past and present. Going to be converting a 45 tall hex front to a nice reef tank and a 20 long into a quarantine that has been sitting idle.

You're welcome I appreciate it. Yea it's been a while since i last had my tank and from looking at this forum it seems like things have changed a lot. When i got out LED lights where starting to be the new thing but now im seeing a lot of people wanting to go back to metal halides.

New to the hobby, just started my first 30gal mixed reef tank. Currently have 2 black oscillaris clowns and live rock in it. Haven't gotten any corals yet. How long do you recommend I wait for corals. I put my black oscellaris in on Sunday, so 3 days ago, they are doing great. I'd appreciate any tips tricks and advance.

Smile Hello

My name is Tony and I am extremely new to the reefing game. I started out with a jellyfish tank two months ago. I think I am finally at the end of the cycle and will test my water one more to to make sure the parameters are correct so I can bring my kids home. Anyway, in the process of cycling my tank I did more research into a reef tank and was intrigued. So, I ultimately bit the bullet and purchased a Biocube 32. So, far I love it. I ordered some live rock and just finished the prepping process (according to the company I purchased them from. They are awesome by the way.). So, I set up my tank with a cool formation, put in the water and watched to see what happens next. I put in a piece of shrimp to start the cycling process and I am on the second day of 3 performing 10% water changes. So far the tank is a little cloudy and I'm still trying to remedy that (to no avail) and the hitch hikers have started introducing themselves. I went into a panic when I saw all of the worms coming out. I went in and tried to kill them by handStupid me! I did some more research and discovered that they are a good thing. So, I just sat back and watched the show. It still weirds me out to see a bunch of worms running around all willy-nilly. I the mean time, i did discover two critters that I can't identify. I will post pics as soon as I figure how. Anyway, I look forward to learning with you guys through this journey and I hope that i can provide some useful info as well. I hope that all of this has a happy and enduring ending
