Hi all,

My dad has reef fish before but nowadays he is having a Japanese Koi business himself.

I've always wanted a reef tank so I am planning to get a red sea reefer 750. Its a big tank so lets take it step by step.

Hello

Hello everyone of ReefCentral I'm new here and haven't personally set up a saltwater tank but my father has set up many and I might soon set up a tank. I personally have setup multiple freshwater tanks and have done tons of research and intend to learn more from all of you guys on RC.

PS. I'm only twelve years old.

Talking New to the saltwater world!

Hello All!

just set up a 20 gallon reef, which my LFS after testing my water, has finished cycling or at least at it the end. Which I found seeing how it was less then 2 weeks with only live rock and sand...
Either way just added 3 hermits to take care of the diatom bloom and installed the skimmer. Any suggestions for what to do next would be welcome!
:dance::dance::dance:

Hello all. Im not new here but new to the hobby. Reef Central is actually to blame as they were the ones who captured my intrest. This is my first saltwater tank after 13 years drooling at pictures and videos.
Tank has been setup since early January and have been adding a snail here a blue leg there. And added Gus the Goby (jk) in early April. Next batch of fish will be a pair of clowns in next several weeks. Any questions? Hit me up! Thanks for reading.

New to RC and having a slow time cycling

Hello, I've been reading RC posts for quite some time and I finally joined. I've had a good handful of different reef tanks over the years but I've been out of the hobby for the last 6 or so. Just set up a new build 75g, 25g sump/fuge. Tried something new, I've never cycled a tank without "cured" live rock before and I'm having a slow time of it. Two clowns fed once per day for three weeks and my ammonia is still at .25 for the better part of two weeks with zero signs of nitrites or nitrates. Will a new tank cycle at that "low" of an ammonia level or am I just in for a long wait?

Welcome! I joined RC when I was 16 and going to be 34 at the end of the month. This is a great place to learn and I have seen the hobby change tremendously over the last 18 or so years.

Introduction

Hi my name is Angie, I am new to the hobby. I have been doing research for the last 6 months, started a 60 Gal FOWLR (adding my first fish today.) Once we feel comfortable we would like to start coral.

Dragon Moray eel set up

Hello,
My name is Brad.
I am fairly new to this site. I currently have a 180 dragon morayvtabk with a yellow tang and two chronis damsels. The tank is very basic, two H2O over flows to a sump with a reef octopus skimmer and a section packed with Cheto. I also have a small biopellet reactor.
Second tank is a 60 gallon cube that shares the same sump as the 180. Thisbtank only has a percula clown currently but will become a mantis shrimp tank in the future.
Third tank is a 120 high? 60x18x24. This tank has a zebra Moray and baby porcupine puffer and a Orange toadfish. Separate sump with SCA skimmer.

Iím not sure where or how to post questions yet but I would love to hear from others with large morays and how they combats nitrates. I canít seem to lower then no matter what I do. Also all sumps are plumbed with a float switch to my
RO system.
