  1. 400g Install from the Summer of 2013

    This blog is long overdue. I was reading a blog on here about a dream tank and figured I would show mine. I'm sure everyone remembers Marc's (Melev) leaky Marineland custom 400g tank... Well, I am the lucky guy who picked it up for a good deal! I had a 100g setup for almost 7 years and I parted it out when I got a house back in 2010. After being house poor for a few years, I got that saltwater itch again and decided to just take a look at used tanks online. There was the tank of my dreams at ...

  2. My 40g breeder "upgrade"

    I've been reefkeeping for about 25 years, and in that time I've gone from a 20 long, a 45 tall, and now a 135. When I got the larger tank (for a steal), I was super excited. I finely had the size I wanted. Large enough without being too large. Or so I thought. The tank has been up for about 6 years. In that time I've slowly lost interest. It seems I've put tons of time and money into care and maintenance, and very little time stopping and enjoying the tank. So, much to my wife's delight, I ...

  3. Long time no update

    Well it has been 5 years since I posted to my blog. I moved houses and now have a huge finished basement and moderately sized unfinished section as well. I am hoping to start a 75 gallon stand this weekend to re-home my cichlids and then I am off to my 125 gallon reef build attempt. Still have all the equipment I posted 5 years ago and now I have two 40 gallon breeders from the $1 a gallon sale at Petco for a QT and Hospital tank.

  4. 1000 Gal Part 9---A brand new system.

    HOLY CRAPOLIE..........that is about all I can say. The new wrap and canopy are utterly amazing. It has really finished off the major work in insane fashion. I had already received lots of compliments and thank yous for all of the work that had previously been done on the inside, the difference between the old design and the new was fantastic and made a huge improvement but I wasn't happy, the change that was made wasn't enough, it didn't have the WOW factor that I wanted. A piece of the ...

  5. Update of life from the desert 8-2014

    8-24-2014
    Holy cow its been a while. Sorry Melve
    I have sold all of the previous systems before we sold our home. We bought a new home and remodeled it to fit my new tank. This is a 234 cube custom built by Lemar. It is 30 x 60 x 30 open top. The sump is located in the basement in a new room we framed in and set up for a fully self contained fish room. It has its own sink, floor drain and dedicated power. In the cold storage behind we have fish storage to keep it ...
