    Josh and Tiffany's RSR 250

    After thinking about it a lot, I've opted to use the same fishless cycling method I've used in the past (four drops ammonium chloride per gallon, coupled with nitrifying bacteria mix (Dr. Tim's One and Only, in this case; the 120 gallon size for my ~80 gallons of total volume)). Dosed the...

    Stocking ideas for a RSR 250?

    So after giving this some more thought, my wife and I have come up with a shortlist. We're definitely getting a six line for pest control, an algae blenny for algae control, and a mandarin because we've really wanted one. We also have a firefish and watchman goby we're bringing over from our...

    Josh and Tiffany's RSR 250

    So, I fired up the return pump yesterday...and got a leak. In the least convenient place possible on the return. After fretting about how to fix it, I removed that section (MAN I love unions), pulled at the joint,....and realized that, somehow, none of the cement I'd added in had formed a weld...

    Thanks! I think doing it once is enough for me. I tend to obsess on things and, when I can't actually do mental work on it, it drives me a bit nuts. :) Thank you! My wife's been really happy to hear the compliments on the scape, since she had a heavy hand in making it. I'll likely go DC at...

    Josh and Tiffany's RSR 250

    I got much less done today than I'd hoped, primarily due to me making a boneheaded mistake and allowing a bucket to overflow and spill 8 or 9 gallons of water all over my kitchen. Fortunately I got it cleaned quickly, and @Srt4eric was awesome enough to make sure I hadn't done any real damage...

    Building new reef - new member

    Welcome to the club, @sajmax007 ! It looks like a lot of the basics have already been covered. I am actually in the process of that right now. I'll be launching the guide with four articles, and I'm about 50% of the way through writing the fourth one.

    That's the plan! The skimmer chamber is right in front of where the drains are. The whole middle section is going to be a refugium; and thank you so much for the offer of the chaeto! I'll take you up on that when I'm ready to set up the refugium. EDIT: And my wife is also excited for any...

    Josh and Tiffany's RSR 250

    Next step: plumbing and the sump. After getting a comparatively-undersized sump for my 50 gallon frag tank, where the primary considerations were "it is a sump" and "won't overflow if there's a siphon", I decided I wanted a nicer, more accessible sump. My wife and I have also really wanted a...

    Josh and Tiffany's RSR 250

    Earlier this year, my wife and I were talking about upgrading our IM Nuvo 20 to a larger display tank. We thought we'd go for an IM Nuvo 40 or something similar...then @Jonathan Chia decided to break down his tank and I went, "Huh, that seems like a good idea." So now we have a Red Sea Reefer...
