Howie's Reef Aquarium Update

Posted 03/07/2016 at 03:34 PM by LVMAS

Here is my second official post. I have been getting emails as to why I bother to post about a fish tank setup when it doesn’t even have any water in it! This is a little bit of background about why I am setting up the tank this way.

I ran the LVMAS club and website from 1997-2005 and then I just walked away from it. One of the things I learned besides the quick “come and go” of the LFS industry here in Las Vegas and Reef hobbyist people always looking for free stuff as members...

Filtration Update

Posted 03/04/2016 at 08:00 PM by LVMAS

Hello Everyone.

Welcome to my reef page and my first official post. So here is my mindset the week before I put water in the sump and no NOT yet in the reef aquarium:

There is 160 pounds of (used) base rock up in the tank I took from storage that I have used in tanks in the past. I pressure washed it but I still expect it to have Nitrates and phosphate. I further expect it to leach into the water.
I have 3 Home Depot 5 gallon buckets of old sugar size sand I...

Opinions on Aqua Craft salt mixes ??

Posted 01/12/2016 at 04:37 PM by LVMAS

[QUOTE=LVMAS;24248276]I know this is an old thread but I have been using Marine Environment Salts (Aqua Craft) for about 20 years. Its worth the extra money to me. I have tried other salts. I always go back to Marine Environment. You must to give it 24 hours to dissolve before using it. That's the closest thing to a negative comment I have for the Salt. I have not used the other Aqua Craft salt mixes.

I have no opinion of the "S-15 Report". It was not a consideration....
