    90 AIO

    a big new addition. a pair of swallowtail angels. quite amazing fish. ive always wanted some of these "midsized" reef safe angels, and its really cool getting a pair. they are still a bit shy but eating on day 2. the male stays near the back and kinda chases the female away. hopefully they can pair up! also, one of the first additions is starting to be a bit less shy. i know they are super common, but royal gammas are so striking. such an underrated fish!

    90 AIO

    Hello all, new year, new tank. I know most people just use the FB page now, but that thing is pretty much a buy and sell only place. I like looking and talking about tanks! so, why not! After months of procrastination, ive upgraded from my 25 lagoon to a 90 gallon all in one tank. the tank actually comes from @Darth Tang who did a great build thread here on it. its a PA tank (I think) turned into an AIO. well i finally got it up and running and all my equipment. running 2 Hydra 52 HDs, MP10 & a Jabao, Tunze 9012 DC skimmer and Tunze ATO. probably going to update to feed straight from my RODI unit. its been running for a bit now, have 2 clowns, yellow tang and royal gamma that everyone bullies. looking at adding a pair of swallowtail angels next. have a few corals for now, duncans, hammer and gsp. not going crazy in on corals for now. want to set up some kinda dosing system for when i start to add things. overall looking good, breaking in the skimmer, so many bubbles. cant even put the cup on it for now, pretty much just have to let it bubble out. guessing that will work. have to say, darth tang did a great job on this tank. totally feeling its dimensions and footprint. using a buffet type cabinet for a stand and have it reinforced.
  3. https://premiumaquatics.com/products/premium-pukani-rock-uncured-dry-lb.html they also have "jumbo" rocks.
  4. tank looks great! I've been wondering about the Gyre. how do you like the flow pattern? I also know the feeling of getting out and back in, and wishing you kept those little things haha. cant wait to see the tank move forward!
  5. Got my ATO moved to the closet next to the tank now. Really cleans up the area. HA is nearly gone, and the diatom bloom has gone away completely. Levels are also looking good right now. Feather duster has made its way behind the rocks, so wont be seeing a lot of him for now.... other then that, happy the tank is clearing up, and the clowns are eating.
  6. Diatom bloom has all but faded away. still a bit of HA, but its going away pretty quick as well. Starting to look more like an actual tank!
  7. dang, I really like the tank. I've been thinking about getting a hawkfish for my 30. between that or a candy cane hogfish. really like the colors of the tank.
  8. Also added, a brain coral, a few more snails and crabs, feather duster, couple mushrooms and some zoas.
  9. I added my first fish today. two clowns. they ate tonight already after being in the tank for about 8-10 hours, so i'm happy about that. here is a little underwater video of the tank. http://i1347.photobucket.com/albums/p704/dadrewski/th_new%20clownfish_zpsn0bnfqgr.mp4 edit: quality went way down putting it on photobucket. yikes.
  10. This is a pretty cool app that is makes a motion photo of sorts that moves. I would really like to see this on some of the great tanks around here. Mine is nothing right now but here is what it does. http://fyu.se/v/gbnz8td1cg not sure how to embad this on the site.
  11. did a rescape... think it looks much better.
  12. Stocking list. Fish: pair of clowns Goby shrimp pair or jawfish. not sure which I want. smaller algae blenny flameback angel maybe a smaller wrasse. and a BTA Coral: going to stick with mostly LPS. I want a few torches/frogspawns/hammers I really want a nice Trachy brain as the center piece. Also want a few zoas and some GSP. still have to set up my ATO and let it cycle, but the LR did come with a few snails still hanging on. Right now I'm just running some floss not using the InTank media holders right now. figured using Chemipure right now would be just a waste.
  13. Thanks, hopefully everything will turn out well.
  14. tank sealed, water test went well. Now added saltwater, dry rock, live rock. I built a scape before I put it in, but didnt quite turn out like I like it. I'm sure I will be tweaking it a good bit. Still pretty cloudy, hope it is clear by tomorrow. Super excited to have a saltwater tank in my house though. been awhile.
  15. got my tank resealed, just need to let it sit for a couple days. hopefully will have saltwater in it by wednesday. Also got my rock. some live, some dry. bit disappointed in the live rock a couple pieces are just bad. but got enough to do what I want. Excited that I will be up and running in just a few days.
  16. I also think a trio of Anthias would be nice. Watanabei angel or two would be pretty awesome.
  17. I'm excited to say I am headed back to salt. After a few weeks/months of deliberating I am setting up my 30 gallon AIO tank. I have thought about going bigger, smaller, or different, but I figured this tank is pretty much the perfect size for me right now. I water tested the tank today, and will reseal the divider for the back chamber because it is letting water into the back through the bottom seam. other then that everything is a go. Got my salt, sand, ATO, test kits, so I am ready for this thing to get saltwater in it.
  18. Thanks guys, I'll check out Just FIsh. I beieve I live right down the road from there. Also I like the stuff on BRS. Thanks all!
  19. The old live rock question. Just wondering where you all think the best place to buy live rock is? I wouldnt mind locally, I live in Biloxi. Ive looked online. so far the best I've found is Premium Aquatics, with a mix of live rock and dry rock. as well as pink fiji sand. Looking to maybe order, or buy this weekend. Thanks guys!
  20. really like those tanks. I have a IM 30 and love it. I would def recommend the ATO, as something like a 16G would need frequent top offs. looks like you have a really good set up to start. looking forward to it.
  21. Thanks guys. I am going to clean up my IM30 and try placing it around finding a good spot. I really love this tank. And although smaller would work better, I know they are more work, and I dont think I would be happy with it. Also I dont want a sump. Thanks Shadow, but that is just a bit too small for me :-) I'll need a ATO and rock and sand to get started. Also want a light mount that connects to the tank. Something like this http://ecotechmarine.com/products/radion-mounting-system/single-light-rms my light is a reefbreeders, same size as the chinese ebay ones. anyone know of a kit that fits this light? I'm still somewhat new to biloxi, so anyone know of a place to get dry rock and/or live rock?
  22. I haven't been on here in a good while. Had a tank crash, tried to restart it but just packed up. I had a 30G IM tank running well, when it all crashed and lost pretty much all of it. I shut it down, for a good while now, but still have the equipment. I havent really tried selling it because I knew I want to get it back, at some point. Well the past few weeks I have had the calling... I have moved and now am in a smaller apartment, so it is a bit different, than just in my house. I have narrowed it down to 3 options. First is just sell the entire set up. Tank, pumps, lights, and all the other stuff. and wait... but I do want a tank :-S Or, sell the tank and light, and move to a smaller tank. I was looking at this: http://www.marinedepot.com/Innovative_Marine_10_Gallon_NUVO_Fusion_Nano_Aquarium_Nano_Cube_Aquariums_Tanks_10_19_Gallons-Innovative_Marine-0I10457-FIAQNCNTTN-vi.html I would buy a new light, and ATO, and be good to go. It would be nice to have something smaller I could put just about anywhere and it not take up a ton of room. any suggestions on other tanks this size, along with lights would be appreciated The only real issue with this is I do really like fish. I would want a few fish, and in a 10G that is hard to do. outside of a goby/shrimp and maybe a clown, or cardnial it would be hard to have something I really want. (flameback angel, or a wrasse) The 3rd option is to stay with my 30g I have now. I already have the light, tank, pw, heater, skimmer. Would just need a mount for my light, and sand/salt/rock. I really like this tank, just it will be awkward to put it in my apartment. plus a lot of rock, water, salt... I really miss having my tank, but if someone is interested in buying IT ALL, I probably wouldn't refuse. Anyway, thought I would share my struggle. haha. Here it was before the crash :-(
  23. Looks great! I am interested in one of the Nems. Is it cash only or will you take cards?
