Your Corals will lookgreat when you get them in a tank.

Good luck with the fire fish. I don't have anything that will breed yet. I'll start stocking up on some different fish for breeding soon. Probably looking at Bristlenose plecos and a couple of types of Cichlid.
Thats the corals in the 37g, the 60 will probably cost 2000$ alone on the corals, when i got the tank it came with some aqualight por metal halides which cost 700$ lol, but i got the tank and the lights for 250$ the brains are still in the bucket waiting to go into the 20 long, i would like to set up a rimless frag tank with just a little clownfish or somthin.

50% water changes on every tank. They've been neglected a little because it's finals week. But I finally found a little time to do it. Also pulled some chain sword runners up and replanted them in a different corner. Those things grow like weeds. I had one string of them that was 12 plants long. I'm sweating for doing all that and all I want is a new tank. Hahaha. I guess I am addicted.

Post 5428, link to my fish house thread, alternatively link below to my flickr page.

I'm picking a tank up (actually 3 tanks) tomorrow (Saturday), one will be modified especially for them. This will be more DIY fun! I got a great deal on these tanks £35-only for all three tanks, 2@36/15/18 £10each,1@24/26/18 £15. Perfect for me, that's a decent reef qt a decent coral qt and the rheophile tank.

This is the first time in 8 years I've paid for a ready made tank!

All I now need is plumbing, silicone and powerheads. One day I'll get around to building a reef!

I love the shape of these fish, pretty unique I think.

You got a really sweet deal on the tanks and i doubt you could DIY them for that price. I've found a cheap source of glass now so i might custom build a few tanks myself in future including redoing my 40g.

Once i have this tank and stand operational I have no lounge room space left for tanks. All further tanks will move into my spare room which i just use for storage.

You have some very nice fish in your tanks. I'm looking forward to seeing what you stock when you have a reef tank running.

First of all thank you, my fish are my pride and joy.

I have a thread that explains the reef build, Gaseous exchange stocking method inc. coral.

Building tanks is easy enough, you are right, those prices are so low the back panel would cost as much as the whole tank.
How is the Brutus build going?

Nice find on those tanks, i dont really understand why people QT corals, i mean who is that crazy? (no offence if you do) its just over-doing it IMO.

Hope your reef turns out good, What powerheads are you gonna use? I love the hydor koralias because you can change the flow in any direction you want and they arent ugly like maxi-jets and what not.
