  1. Hi all, well it’s been quite a while and a few different tanks, but I finally decided to build an SPS dominant tank that the sticks should really like. 😊. Also, I’ve seen quite a few cube tanks and really like the layout so I decided on a fairly large cube. I got Planet Aquariums to build a custom 135gal that’s 36” x 36” x 24”tall, so it’s a 3’ cube, 24” tall, rimless, 3/4” thick glass, polished edges, blacked out back, 1” thick pvc bottom, and a 16” Modular Marine overflow. The stand is a custom welded 2” steel that’s powder coated black. (Below) this build has a ton of fairly cool hardware i
  2. Hi all, after living in a small home for the past 6 years and having limited space for a larger tank, the wife and I finally moved up into a larger home with plenty of wall space for a larger tank. We plan on living in this home for a while, and this is the closest I'll get to a dream tank for a long time. I decided to order a custom build tank through River City Aquatics that is 7 feet long, 30" wide, and 24" tall. Roughly 260 gallons of water in the display tank. We are also expecting a daughter to arrive in February 2020, so planning the tank to be kid safe was a key consideration. Sin

  5. Had a 90g reef tank in the late nineties while in high school. I’m getting back in the hobby. I just bought a new house and with that have an office with room for a tank. I ended up going with a Waterbox 180.5. It’s basically a 140g display tank. It arrived today. I plan on going after a pretty high end setup and will roughly follow the WWC/BRS hybrid method and go after a nice SPS dominant tank. I’ve bought about 80% of the rest of the gear for the tank setup to this point and looking forward to the build. Excited to connect with the AUSTIN reefing community. My biggest concern actu

I haven't had a coral tank in a few years so this is my system for getting my sea legs back. I started it back in February and I will make some posts catching the thread up to where the system is now. The tank is corals only. I am growing them out to donate or sell and keep a few as pets for a project later. I got my first ARC corals at the frag sale back in Ma

  9. Hey all it’s been awhile since I did anything on a build thread and I would Really like to document the reboot of my 150. My wife and I moved from Round Rock to Georgetown back in May and we have been pretty busy getting settled and getting the new house set up, so there hasn’t been much time for the tank which was sitting in the garage til a few weeks ago. My brother in law came up and we finally got it moved into it’s new home after getting it cleaned up. The few fish and corals I have left have been chilling in my QT and I am sure ready for the big tank to get set up. last week I got
  10. I realize "Beginner" and "240 Gallon" is kind of an oxymoron, but go big or go home... I recently acquired a 240 Gallon tank that is set up to be a reef tank, although the farthest it every got with the previous owner was about 1 month with water and some rock in it. It has been sitting in a garage for about 7 years. I purchased the whole set up and I want to get started assembling the tank and getting it going. I have no idea what I am doing, but I have been doing a lot of research and I think I have a few ideas... 1. I want an Apex controller 2. I want (2) Kessil AP700 lights.
  11. The thumbs up has been given and Ty has agreed to host the club so everyone can check out his tank and fish room. Please be aware that he does have a baby under 1 year old so if you are sick, just recovered, or your kids are sick, please help him out and skip the meeting. With that said, he will be catering the usual Vietnamese food as snacks for all that attend and frags will be available for purchase. You can bring frags to trade or buy but make sure you have your own container to hold them. PM Ty for address This event will be held from 2:00pm to 4:00pm.
  12. Hi all, I have made an Excel spreadsheet for me to use to help keep me on track and honest about my water testing. I have formatted it with average parameters for a mixed reef tank since that is the tank I am currently striving for. The parameters are completely customizable to what you want in your tank with about 15-20 minutes of work depending on your knowledge of Excel. With the formatting I currently have set up it will let you know when your parameters are inline with what you desire for your tank. I set in a dosing calculator for additives and medications (if you use them) to help

  18. Question, if I buy a piece of SPS from a store or fellow reefer I usually try to find out what lighting it was placed under. But I think I should be asking what are the water parameters they were grown in. I would think if you buy a piece that is grown in Alk of 7.5 and drop it in a tank with a Alk of 9.5 this would shock the crap out of them. We all have had issues were the KH has dropped below par by accident and have seen the results. So what is the best way to acclimate them to the tank? Or am I overthinking this.

  20. Hola Austin Reefers! I just heard from Holly at Cultivated Reef and she said with another group order we could get free shipping (as long as I can get multiple reefers to order). So would anyone be interested in going in on a group order? One great thing about Cultivated Reef is if you ask they will send you wysiwyg photos of the frags you're interested in to choose from. I want to get a feel from the group before completing the order, but I was thinking within 2-3 weeks. They have a really great selection and I did place an order with them from the previous group order(everything came
