Ph*ck walmart. Why don't you just go kill their workers' kids instead. If I had a button that would revert all walmarts to old growth forest, I would push it.

Nanogurl, what do you feed your fish to make them look so healthy and beautiful? That powder blue looks like you just teleported her from Hawaii. Beautiful fish, I want to know how to get my tiny...

ExarKun: Glad you like the tank, I'm definitely starting to like how it looks. Still evolving, but that's most of the fun. As for fish stores, I haven't found any closer than Lovely, though I don't...

Well, you better be a little crazy or you won't enjoy reefing. Heck no, you don't need no stinking "filter" just some live rock and water movement. Keep up with the H2O changes and you'll be fine

I still plan to add the new overflow. While the noise is better, it isn't still completely silent, and I'm confident I can improve on this with the new overflow and gurgle buster. In addition, the...

Thanks for the kind words, and I'm jealous. I love those Euphyllias, they add so much color and movement. I've been trying to get one for less than the insane prices they charge at the stores, but no...

As promised, new pictures of chubs. As a squirrelly little toddler of a fish, he hates to hold still for photos, so I had to resort to the flash. It turns out that the camera flash scares the fish,...

So I got the sump in last night, and it rocks! My goals were to increase the sump capacity (now 9-10 gal), separate drain and return pump chambers to reduce microbubbles and most importantly, have...

mathias999us, thanks for the heads up on that tool. I haven't tried manhandling it with a pair of pliers yet, but if that doesn't do the job, I will definitely go grab one of these. Good find. I plan...

Loc-line holdup

Well, I got the loc-line into the configuration I want it, but I ran into two problems. The first is that I used a "double nipple" fitting screwed into one of my bulkheads for the PVC fittings. (This...

Pretty good setup, but your sump scares me. I'm no expert, but I'd say the tank was designed with the black plastic rims for a reason. The bottom one is to provide a level surface free of pressure...

Why are you thinking of switching to a glass tank to drill for an overflow for a sump. Your existing acrylic tank is far easier to modify and won't nearly as much risk of cracking. The LFS is...
