    42 Gallon Hex Tank Build

    Back in 2008 I decided I wanted to get back into the hobby. I wanted to try using LED's for lighting. At that time there were just a few commercially built units available. I decided to do a DIY LED system as an experiment. I had a 42 gallon hex tank that was not in use. I decided to use it. I figured it would be cheaper to use it than the 110 I have. To do this I decided to build a canopy to house the LED fixture. My wife had some requirements if I set the tank back up. She did not want to see any equipment hanging off the back of the tank. She did not want to see the water line or top of the tank. Also she did not want to see the sand or gravel against the side of the tank at the bottom. The photo below is what I came up with. I will go into the details of building this in future post. Since I am local I decided to add a build thread for this on this forum. The photo below is a recent photo of the tank. It has been up and running for about 3 years now.
  2. I recently upgraded to a 180 gallon tank and need to get rid of the old 75 gallon to make room for new hardwood floors. This is a 10-year-old, classic Oceanic 75-gallon glass aquarium. It's reef ready with a corner overflow and it's in perfect condition. No scratches. Glass center brace. The stand and canopy are black and, although the stand has some cosmetic water damage, it is structurally sound and just needs a new coat of paint and some TLC. There is also a custom (Precision Marine) acrylic sump with 3 chambers and a damaged but functional Reef Octopus skimmer with a Sicce pump. What's the catch, you ask? It's got salt water and about 100 pounds of algae and majano infested live rock and sand in it, currently cooling its heels in the dark. The rock is pretty much exhausted after 10 years but would make excellent base rock if you have the patience to dry it out and clean it up. But if you want this setup, you must come drain it and carry it all away. The whole shebang. The sooner the better. It's definitely a 2-man job. Message me if you are interested and we will arrange a time. I am in Central Austin. The aquarium is on the ground floor of a house, but there are stairs at the front door.

    72 Bowfront and 12g fluval Edge

    Hello everyone, I've got to get rid of some stuff, don't want too but I have too , I've got a fluval edge I set up and never completed its just been sitting with water cycling in it. Asking 175 OBO. I also have a 72 Bowfront with sump and jbj lights asking 350 OBO. The 12g needs new lights and the 72 needs the center brace repaired. As we all know the lights alone are worth 300 easy so I think the 72 is a steal.
  5. The stand is not in the best condition, previous owner did some cutting on it. The tank needs to be cleaned up but had no leaks when I took it down 2 months ago. The upper canopy has 4 - 48" reflectors screwed in, and hinges that make for very easy tank access. I do live in Lago Vista so it may be a little bit of a drive, let me know if you would like to come see it. I may entertain trade of a fairly decent size skimmer, possibly MH or LED lighting or even some decent colorful frags.
