My display tank is a 92 gallon All-Glass Aquariums corner tank (curved front), started 29-May-99. LR, LS, Berlin skimmer powered by a Mag 7 with modified Mazzi injector. Circulation provided by a Maxi-jet 1000 on a Osci-Wave wave maker in addition to a fan-shaped return nozzle and a Mag 2 in the opposite corner from the Osci-Wave. Lighting is 3x175W 10,000K MH in a DIY hood with Ice-Cap variable speed fans on a 12-hour cycle. I just added two 55w Powewr Compacts for actinic. The refugium is a 20 gallon tank divided into 3 sections lit on alternate cycle to the halides. I also use my DIY calcium reactor and my DIY Nilsen kalkwasser reactor. I have just about everything automated including top-off.

See my tank and DIY pages at http://dallura.com/reef.

Hello Hello

I’m new around here, but I’ve been fish keeping for years. I am quite partial to goldfish, but I’ve got an assortment of other fish that have a lot of personality. I am an armature photographer, and my fish are great subjects.

Hi everyone. New here, both to this group and AA.

I'm in Ashburn, VA (10 minutes from the Dulles Airport) and while I've done some fish tanks in the past, I consider myself pretty much a newb. We always had tanks as a kid, multiple tanks, freshwater, saltwater, we had seahorses, lobsters, and arowana. Basically, you name it, at one time or another we had it. I've always loved it. Probably because of that, I love the water, especially the ocean, and scuba is one of my other hobbies.

Since I've grown up (physically, not necessarily in attitude haha) I helped my daughter setup a 12 gallon eclipse tank that we successfully maintained for well over a year, but had to tear down to move. I've been wanting and wanting, and finally this past Christmas my wife got me a 46 gallon bowfront. Gorgeous tank, and I think a very good way to get myself into this a bit more. Setting it up freshwater, and currently about 1/2 through my fishless cycle (see my thread in the FW - getting started section for details (and to help!)). Eventually, I desire to do a Reef system, but that's definately a ways down the road yet.

Anyways, wanted to introduce myself and thank everyone for this great forum!

Hi....My online name is Morningman...my real name is Jeff and I don't have any salt tanks right now, but have been keeping fish of all kinds since 1972. Right now I have 9 tanks up and running. The smallest is a 10 gallon...the largest is a 125 gallon. I currently have a breeding pair of Brichardi Cichlids, Angels, Discus, Cardinals, Rummynose, Pristella Tetras, and lots of Plecos. I have several breeding pairs of Bristlenose (brown and albino) and I have a young group of L-333's that I am hoping will spawn over the winter. I live in central Pa about 30 miles from Penn State University. I call it a hobby....my wife calls it my addiction!
