  1. Very nice! I especially like the white guy.
  2. Pretty! Mind if I ask you where you bought your palm tree ornament?? I am obsessed with palm tree stuff. I think it's just awesome!!
  3. Hehehe. We will put it this way, *I* would not make one, but I am more than happy to sit back and have hubby make one for me.
  4. Think of it as a giant extension of a HOB filter. But instead, it sits below the tank. One piece of plumbing tube empties into the tank that sits below the display tank, and a submersible pump (similar to what you find in a pond), pumps water back up to your display tank. Its identical theory to a HOB filter. The difference is that a HOB filter spills the clean water into the tank. A sump actually pumps it through a tube to get back up into your display tube. He was adding the water to the sump so as not to disturb the sand bed. You will find it is much cheaper than a couple of large canister filters. There are lots and lots of articles and videos on the internet to help too!
  5. This is the build my husband did for his marine tank. http://www.kokosgoldfish.invisionzone.com/forum/index.php?/topic/79000-some-pics/ As my husband decided to go with a small reef tank, this tank has been handed down to me and my pondfish (after we clean it really well of course). The sump will become my filter. We use the overflow that was built into the tank for the drain, and a pump allows the water to return from the sump. We will be adding a bunch of bio media to the sump. I unfortunately don't know much more than that, but I hope the pictures and ideas in my husband's post will help. Good luck!
  6. Oh what gorgeous fish you have there!! That makes me so excited for when we set up a pond next summer! I am going to have an awful hard time deciding between fancies and comets. I both kinds so very much!
  7. I guess my tanks would be considered to be "full". I like having lots of plants. I put tall plants in the back, and lots of little short grasses and whatnot in the front to give lots of swim space. But it gives the tank an illusion of being "full".
  8. Looks like you are off to a great start! I can't wait to see more pictures of the progress!
  9. Very pretty! I love the lighting effects!
  10. My husband built a rock wall in his saltwater tank. He attached it to the tank with a ridiculous amount of silicone (5 tubes for 90g tank), and clamped it and weighed it down. Certainly, I am sure there is some water that seaks behind it, but not enough that it has caused any problems. For Glue, he used a product called "Great stuff" which we found at our Home Depot. It is a spray can (red can, yellow top) intended for draft control and sealing windows and what not. It has been unofficially tested by my Local Aquarium group on numerous tank builds and found to be aquarium safe. Here is the link to his post where he talks all about it. http://www.kokosgoldfish.invisionzone.com/forum/index.php?/topic/79528-foam-rock-wall-how-to-lots-of-pics/
  11. You might try rotating the bulbs within the ballast. Sometimes a slight adjustment after it has come loose can fix the issue of the bulbs turning on and off. Is it a single bulb fixture?? What about the electrical outlit itself?? My son's were having an issue with their night light flickering on and off and my husband later found that the connections were loose in the outlet itself. Just a thought. My fingers are crossed for the best and cheapest fix for you!!
  12. They all look super sweet to me! :hearts
  13. Oh wow!! I dont think Ive ever seen albino goldfish!! Congrats on the new beauties!
