New Tank by txtmess on 23 Jun 2015 10:24

So here it starts got a deal on a 400 Litre Aquareef from the lads at Seahorse one of there ex display tanks that I happened to come across with the missus and before I knew it my bank balance was gone.

So nothing that most of you haven't see before it's a popular enough model but it comes with a few upgrades of an ATO tank and pump , some LEDS and the piping is not standard either.

Will hopefully post progress as I get it in place but be warned I am a slow tank builder and have been know to stare at live rock for a couple of months figuring out what looks best.

My other main thought is to run the system as Triton as the lack of water changes appeals to me and being honest that's the main driver as I have seen systems done every which way but that to me seems to be the selling point.

Smelly Fish Tank by dylanfarrell on 29 Jun 2010 19:01
Hi guys,
I have an old fish tank that has been refurbished yet there is still some really old algae engorged onto the top of it. I am not sure if it may be due to this but my fish tank smells, I have been told to clean my filter which i have done but the tank still does not smell too great !I was wondering if you guys could give me some advice as I have only set up the tank and am new to the fish owning 'lark'.

The build by steman on 17 Jun 2014 21:51
Little update.
Tank is all setup with new cabinet new sump and new tank.
Kept same rock and sand, also corals and fish.

This time with the rock scape I wanted to change from "the wall" look, to the "island" style.

Here's some pics of the changes. Next entry I'll go through my problems and equipment update.
