Hey everyone,


Just looking to get back into the hobby. I have a little 2.5 gallon nano tank thats been severely neglected for years (no fish or coral, just some snails and crabs) that I need to get back to maintaining properly. It's been a while since I've looked at things, the last time I was really into the hobby, Metal Halide's/T5's were the best lighting and LED was just barely coming around. Anyway, looking forward to catching up, my wallet not so much.

Hi folks, have been in this hobby for a few years now. Upgrading to a 130 gallon tank soon and looking for build ideas and the best tank options. Looking forward to sharing the final pictures

Hi group! Starting in reef tanks after a lot of years in fresh water... A whole new world for me. I am planning a 90 gal tank (330 liters) that will be at home this month. I hope to learn a lot here...

Regards from Spain!

I'm new to the group! Just started my build thread in the large tank forum. Hello everyone! I've been keeping reefs since 2007.

Long time freshwater planted tanker here. I have a 150 gal acrylic tank with built in overflows and a 30 gal glass sump. I am thinking about tearing this down and reusing the tank/sump for a reef tank. I have just started research and will take my time.

Is acrylic more difficult for algae scraping in the salt world?

hello all, I'm not new but I had not had a reef tank since 2005. I can see a lot of technology has change since I had my tank. I'm planning on getting a tank again, but I don't know where to start. Can anyone can point me to the right direction?? I don't want to do Metal Halide lights again....LOL. Something simple so my kids can enjoy the piece of reef like I did in the past.

rainsong,
Acrylic scratches extremely easy& you have to use a special scraper for algae.

Revalation1315,
LED lighting is the new thing & BRS has done a whole series on everything from soup to nuts on aquariums & how to.
I suggest you start there on You tube to get a feel for what you want.
