Hello to all, new to the site!!

What's up everyone! Thought I would check out the site and get to know fellow reefers. Been in the hobby for about ten years and still love to find out new ways of doing things. I currently have a 75G full reef w/ SPS,LPS,etc..Love the pictures of the tanks and set ups that are out there. Also interested in selling,buying, and trading! Hit me up and say hello!

New guy from Wilmington

Hi, I hope everyone is having a great day. I just moved back to Wilmington last month from Sanford NC, and I am glad to be back. I just started a tank for the first time in years and I want to do this right. For starters right now, it's just a twenty gallon with sand and gravel mixed inside it. It has a heater and a filter, but no livestock. Right now, I don't know if I want to start a basic freshwater tank, or if I want to try something like a river biome tank. If anyone has already made a river tank, I'd love to hear from them.

Have a great day,
Mike the Newbie

Tim from Boone, NC here. Just joined. Have had a 58 gallon simple mixed reef tank for 7-8 years. No sump, just an AquaC Remora and carbon in the box that covers the pump. Now thinking about getting a sump. Need some advice on how reliable the siphon/return method can be. We have hardwood floors and my wife has always vetoed a sump. But now I'm feeling the need for one. Thanks. Look forward to lots of good info here.

Hi, I have been on here a while but never posted. Here goes, I have a 30 gallon fresh water and just purchased a 75 gallon. I want to create a planted tank in the 75 gal with Discus. Does anyone have any idea what kind of substrate and how much I will need? Anyone have advice on Discus? I have had Angels for about 15 yrs now and never had a problem.
Thanks for any input.

No need to be sorry just a friendly helpful hint. Nothing negative implied

Hi,

I've had a freshwater tank since I was a kid and have been nano reefing for the past 10 years. I am in the process of upgrading my tank and stopped by the LFS and they told me about this forum so I thought I would check it out.
