After 5 years of service that provided me moments of joy and tears, frustrations and successes along with moments of incredible beauty as well as complete disgust, it had become time for my old 90 gallon to retire.

Hasty setup decisions made early on had started to come back to bite me (plumbing, bad stand) and my tank was starting to show signs of what is commonly referred to as "Old Tank syndrome." Though the tank was algae free and generally stable and healthy, the...

How to set up a gyre with powerheads

Posted 06/10/2011 at 01:36 PM by snorvich (System configuration and fish for my two tanks)

I have two primary aquaria: a 350 gallon tank in the family room and a 240 gallon tank in the kitchen. Both tanks are custom made acrylic tanks with filtration in the basement. Both tanks are controlled with a Profilux controller on a local area network.

I am converting all of my tanks to LED. In my 8 foot 240 gallon tank, I have seven Aqua Illumination SOL Blue lights which are controlled by a Profilux controller. In my 350 gallon 30 inch deep tank I am using 3 Pacific Sun fixtures, again controlled with Profilux.

Calcium Supplementation

I formerly used aquacare calcium reactors. However I am converting to dosing 3 part with a GHL slave doser. I selected the slave doser although the tank is Profilux controlled because the dosing vats are in the basement
