  2. Has anyone used nitrifying bacteria to cycle there new tank? Im starting my with dry rock its also a barebottom tand so I wont be useing sand. Not much surface area for the bacteria to stick to. I bought a bottle of Fritz Turbo Start. I was just curious if anyone else has tried this product. Also if anyone has used nitrifying bacteria, was it a fish or fishless cycle? I would prefer fishless and will need some Ammonia chloride. Any feedback on this topic would be greatly appreciated. Ayo

    I will eventually add an Apex system but for now I rigged my MP40 and Radion Power blocks to back off the stand. They are just Velcroed so if I have to move them it can be done fairly easily. I hope this works to save Room for my Apex in my stand.... Let me know what you guys think about this. I love a clean look.

    After doing some research I realized chaetomorpha grows best with a red a blue spectrum. So I added the grow light to my sump. Apparently it's best to run a light opposit your display cycle for best results..it looks cool too:))

    I chose to go with dry Reef Saver rock.. Its cost effectiveness plus I love the way looks. My next project is to aqua scape. Also set up a BRS RO/DI. After talking to my city water company, I found out that they treat our water with chloramines. So of course i got a 5 stage with 3 carbon blocks.

    For my lighting I went with Radion XR15 G4 pros. I plan to have a total of 3 but I'm starting with 2. I like the XR15 because I can spread them out.
  8. Well the reefing bug bit me once again and I'm building a 120g Planet Aquarium Cristeline. She started off blue and the wife said "Absolutely NOT" So like a good hubby I agreed and painted it white;) So much has changed in the 10 years that I've been with out a tank. First major component is light. No more MH /t5s. Now we have Beautiful controllable LED. I love the fact that they produce NO heat! Not having to buy a chiller makes me happy. Here are a few pic of my progress so far. PLEASE, I would love to know what you guys think...Good and bad.

    Reef tank search

    I'm in the market for a large cubed reef aquarium in the baton rouge or surrounding areas. If anyone knows where I can buy one new or get one built will help also. I would like something that's 48x48x24.

    Kirk’s 350-ish build

    Nope, no spawns. I lost a few nice ones prior to the transfer, and just in the last week, a couple more have disappeared. No clue where they went. They were looking great prior to starting to walk and then disappear below the rocks. Hughes isn’t even an option. No way I’m paying over $100 a month for 25 gigs of data use prior to them throttling you to 600kilobit speeds (some “unlimited” plan they’ve got there).

    Well, here's an update on my tank. It's basically on auto pilot right now, coming up on 2 years old. I did recently make the switch from all T5 to only two Kessil A360Xs. Nothing but positive things to say about those. The color, the shimmer, and most importantly they do grow coral. I am keeping up with the big 3 with ATI Essentials Pro. It's only two parts but doses the big 3 and other trace. The corals have responded well and are growing. Demand seemed to ever be climbing but has recently settled out at 6 mL per day of each. Pretty potent stuff IMO. Any-who here's the tank as it currently sits. Scored the rainbow trachy at Fragniappe this year. w00t!
