  1. Thanks for the advice. I'm gonna check out that website and see about an overflow kit, that would be nice. Thanks again.
  2. Is it very difficult to drill for a corner overflow? I'm thinking of getting a 55 and doing it myself. I've got some experience working with glass, just never drilled an aquarium before. When doing it, it would be best to drill out the back glass because the bottom is tempered, correct? Also, what size fitting do you think is sufficient for a 55 gal? Sorry, first time doing this myself, but thought it would be a fun experience.
  3. Thanks for the info. I knew one of you two would know.
  4. Does anybody know where I can get heat packs to use for shipping coral?
  5. With that in mind, what's the best way to frag zoos and palys? I'm ok on everything else, but never fragged them before.
  6. Although I don't know you other than your name, I will post any colonies I'll depart with. I'm going to frag a few and set them up in the smaller tank in the mean-time. We still have to sell our house, so something tells me I have a little time here. Not that it wouldn't be great if it sold right away, but I'm not holding my breath. Thanks for all the advice
  7. EDD is end of march. She's about 12 weeks along. I'm wanting to make this tank as easy as possible. I thought of selling it all off, but I've collected a few corals I just don't want to loose. But if it becomes too much, don't worry, family takes precidence.
  8. Good new/ bad news. My wife is pregnant, and we just found out is with triplets! The bad news is that this will require extended bedrest for her. So we've decided to move in with my in-laws temporarily so my mother-in-law can help with our 2 year old before, and with the triplets right after they're born. I'm currently running a 100 gal tank--no room in their house for this. Eventually I'll be selling most of my stuff off, but I don't want to leave the hobby. So I picked up a 20 gal. today that is big enough for all that I can't stand to let go. My question is, how should I set up this tank. Space will be limited, so I'm not sure I'll be able to get too fancy. While this is temporary, it does still have to last for a year to year in a half. Can I get by without a sump? How should I handle a skimmer? I'll need to think about lighting as well. What would be the easiest and most cost-effective way to set up a 20 gal? I'll be keeping a few smaller fish, soft and LPS coral. Also does anyone have any equipment for a smaller tank they are looking to get rid of? Thank you for any help.
  9. At the frag swap earlier this year, I thought there was a vendor that was located in more northern Indiana. For some reason, I'm wanting to say Valparaiso? I could be wrong, but I think they had quite a selection of clams and other corals. Does anyone know the name of the place I'm poorly describing?
  10. I found a nice blue throat a couple of weeks ago and decided on him. He's fitting in very nicely. Here's a pic of him. And thanks for the advice
  11. Very nice pics and fish. I do believe I'm going to give a trigger a try.
  12. Thanks for the help. Now I just have to decide between starfish and shrimp or a cool trigger. Tough decision there.
  13. Are there any Triggers that tend to do well in a reef aquarium? I mainly have all soft corals, zooanthids, and LPS in a 100 gal tank. Only a couple of SPS frags. They're such a neat fish, but I thought they could nip at coral? Just thought I'd ask. Thanks
