Hi all,

I have a few things I need to thin out.

Large orange Yuma $25
Space Invader Pectinia $60 (2 available good sized frags)
40+ heads of Nuclear Green Candycanes $30
Rainbow Bubble Tipped anemones $50 (2 available)...Sorry for the crappy anemone picture. They are in a basket to prevent escape. That was the only angle I could get. They have a bright green base with green, orange, red tentacles.

Everything is healthy and pest free!!!!

Text me if interested @ (801)915-5119...Rex

General Help : Canopy or leave open?

I have had both and I like both! But for my new tank I went with a canopy. I haven't quite finished the columns that will go from the stand to the ceiling. I also made the sides as doors on hinges so I can access the side of the tank easily. I am hoping its starts a trend!





Helps keep the light from shining in the room and on your face!

Aaron's setup is even more beautiful in person. I've seen it. There you go. Isn't this a great club! Three responses and two invitations to visit.  Adam uses four (or maybe six?) of the Chinese Black Box lights over his ~300 gal tank. Below is a pic of his awesome reef, from a few years ago.

I need to cut back the macro algae my sump.  I'll be tossing caulerpa and chaeto today if no one wants some.  PM if you do and can pick it up today.  Both macro algaes are mixed together, so I can't get one or the other.

Adam makes me 
It comes down to personal preference and the particular aquarium situation. I like to see my saltwater ponds and put my arms into the water anytime, so I don't use a canopy - never have. I'm a coral farmer from way back, when we first learned how to propagate coral from one of the Pioneers, Leroy Headlee, now deceased:  www.garf.org 
When going canopy-less, hanging lights down from the ceiling is only one of three options:Option #2 is to hang the lights from a shelf bracket or hanging planter bracket attached to the wall above and behind the aquarium. Option #3 is to place wood or acrylic braces across the tank top frame (designed so they can't possibly slip and fall into the tank) with the LED lights attached.

Did you know? Looking at other peoples tanks is the best way to find out what you like. You can see some of my tanks over the years in a thread I have placed at the end of the list of Reefkeeping Tips, click here. Hobbyists are welcome to come by my shop in Murray to see my current systems using both hanging and tank top fixtures.
As you can see from the entire Reefkeeping Tips thread, I have worked very hard at finding the most cost effective ways to set up and maintain a reef aquarium and inexpensive ways to avoid most reefkeeping problems. One of my philosophies has always been to use what I have and make it work. 
That said, I love the new top of the line LED lights, including the one you mentioned, but I would never spend my hard earned money on a Kessil light. Please don't misunderstand me. It's not because they aren't one of the three best LED lights available, but because we have right here in the WMAS, a source of one of the other three best LED lights at budget friendly prices. Check this thread but don't be put off by the OP which indicates that the first batch of lights he had are already sold. He gets more all the time: Aqua Illumination LED lights for sale
A wonderful thing about these top quality LED lights is that they use an in-line, rather than in-fixture, power supply. This drastically reduces the weight of the hanging light fixture. The Chinese Black box lights weigh ~15-30 lbs. The AI, Radion and Kessil lights weigh ~1-7 lbs.

You could swing by and see how mine works if you are ever up North.  I love mine and I love that I can hide my lights. Mine just opens up and it's pretty easy to access the tank.  Even though it's 8 feet long, it's super light.  The wifey can help me slide it off and onto the floor if I need to get down and dirty.

Hello, I'm having such a hard time deciding what I want to do. I have a 125 gallon tank cycling right now ( its a 48 inch wide tank not the long one)and I'm working on my lights right now. I don't know if I should hang my lights from ceiling or build a canopy for the Lights. I would think it would be easier to clean the tank without the canopy but worry about the light protruding out into the room to much. I have just 2 Chinese box lights to light it right now. I hear nothing but bad about them but got for a good deal while I save my money up. Plus I would like to buy used because I'm poor and don't have lots of Mula. But I thought maybe I would ask you guys? Canopy or not? Hang from ceiling or not? Or wait and buy me some kessils? Which isn't possible right now. Thanks for your help. I can't wait to put fish and coral in my new tank

Planning on it.  The Curve 5 just overflows and annoy's me too often anyway.  Just taking it from my 55 for now.

Hey guys, I am taking down my 55 gallon and 40 breeder in place of a 125g.  I'm actually sad to see the 55 go.  It has been up for three years and was a struggle for 2 of those, yet prevailed in the end.  I'm actually surprised i stuck with it lol.  I had dyno, cyano, GHA problems.  I have the 55 running really well right now and don't want to mess with it, but the wife wants Kitchen upgrades so it needs to be taken down.  We will be putting the 125 in the Family room.  I am currently working on painting the stand and building a sump.  I hope to have water in it within the next two weeks.  
My equipment will be as follows:2x Mars Aqua Chinese LED, 2x 60" T5 Blue PlusRio 14HF Return Pump 4 Koralia powerheads Jebao Wave MakerBubble Magus Curve 5 Protein Skimmer55 Gallon Sump w/ large Chaeto chamberGravity fed ATOEheim 300 watt heaterBRS Dual Reactor Carbon/GFO

I am a little excited for the 125, it will give my GSP, Xenia and button polyps room to grow.  I know most of you don't like softies but I hope they grow like wild fire lol.  Softies Rule! 

Please share any advice in moving my rocks, crushed coral, softies corals and  fish into the new tank.  I want as little impact as possible and hope I can avoid problems of the past.
