  1. Shall I just go with a metal container then? It would take me a bit I was going to make the frame out of plywood and 2x4s. If I had the time, I would have started making a frame out of metal a month ago lol
  2. The temperature in my area gets to 75ish (which is rare) tops even at that its cold because of the ocean breeze. Worst comes to worst, if the spot I picked is wrong I can put it under my awning or the opposite side of the house
  3. Hello fellow humans, ok stopping the corny stuff I am convincing myself in moving my goldfish out to my backyard because 1) there's nothing out there 2) who cares because there's nothing out there 3) I want to put a piano where the current fish tank is right now I am not planning to use one of those metal stock tanks because I live near the beach and from my experiences, the salt air doesn't like playing well here So I went to Lowe's to look for tanks and found this http://www.lowes.com...%7C1&facetInfo= Question is, what kind of filter you all suggest, I won't be digging it in and planning to reinforce the shelf parts with bricks or whatever that you people may suggest This is the area where I am thinking of putting the tank
  4. I shall give you advice for a twenty
  5. So, I went to mount the light then umm...
  6. The light http://www.wave-point.com/Lighting_folder/LEDClampLight.html What do you think of this info here koko http://www.aquabuys.com/c/nano-reef-aquarium.html
  7. Do I need any calcium additives or anything to jump start it? Or just set up everything and let it cycle? I got a wave point "micro sun led clamp light" so hopefully it will be fine
  8. From what I read, use the sponge, ceramic and some live rock
  9. Lol never take anything I say literally, I meant that everyone knew me better here
  10. Lol I knew it was a clown something! I was wondering if I can replace the hood with a certain bulb by I was looking into that light they ha in the video. I was looking around that site but considering people hate me here, I might as well try asking here before anything. A friend of mine had a pico tank and she told me I don't need a powerhead, any thoughts?
  11. That was the point The LFS always took care of me when I needed RO water etc, their equipment cost is a bit higher than normal but hey, they answer my questions. I'm thinking of doing a reef for sure and maybe one of those tiny clown fish (not exactly the orange one). I have two spare filters, a Aquaclear 20 or a Zoo Med Nano 501, I'm leaning towards the aquaclear cause it will give the top of the water more flow so algae/slime won't build up as quick For a powerhead, I want a Hydor Koralia Nano 240 http://www.amazon.com/Hydor-Koralia-Nano-Aquarium-Circulation/dp/B0036S4YZ0/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1348897223&sr=8-2&keywords=Hydor+Koralia+Nano Live sand, Caribsea live sand whatever white they have Live rock, I will get at the same place as I will be getting the RO water This is the picture of the tank I am goign to use and MAYBE with the hood, I will get something proper depending on waht is suggested etc After some searching I found this jewel http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bIk4bvffRPQ
  12. I will have a spare 5 gallon soon and decided to start a nano tank here is my plan on what to get I will need Live sand Live rock Salinity meter thing Powerhead Lighting Questions are Should I be safe if I just buy premix water from the same place all the time? I know it would probably be better to mix my own but I'm just doign a 5 gallon and don't think its worth the time unless I was goign for a bigger tank I have the basic canopy lighting for the tank, would I be fine with jsut gettign a proper bulb, if so what kind? What else do I need to know really?
  13. Obviously with 10ppm it's orange, with 20ppm it's abit darker orange. 40ppm is red and 80ppm is a different red...God!
  14. It is, but every now and then it would make that grind, I rechecked everything and it was fine
  15. Went to do a WC and started it up again and it was grinding, so i cleaned it and put some vaseline on the shaft, still making this noise any suggestions? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dAexctfGDUU
  16. Did you at least get the dog food?
  17. So your waterfall turned into a geyser?
  18. Aren't center braces really for the lights?
  19. Iono what Gumtree was so I checked it out and I found this JEWEL http://gumtreeads.com/classifieds/category/Pets/Adoption/Beautiful_Tamed_Hand_Raised_Baby_Capuchin_Monkey.htm
  20. But I did find an entire house for sale O.o http://hampshire.craigslist.co.uk/gms/3206273222.html
  21. There's craigslist in the UK, but I've been looking at all the areas and it seems that no one is selling it...unless a fish tank is called something else there
