    Got a new family member (not fish or human)

    So I remember reading a bunch of threads back in the day about dog owners here on LARC. Pics showing them off and debates over food and exercise. I never quite understood until now. I have been doing a tremendous amount of research and finally I am in a position to own my first dog. Meet my new...

    New Tank Plumbing Schematic

    Alrighty folks. I have had enough of the minor floods from one thing or another on my current 180 gallon setup, as it is sitting on carpet (even though I knew better). Anyways, the time has come to tile the fish room. And as most know, when a tank most come down, a larger one must go up -clap- ...

    Clown Goby Hosting my RBTA

    check this video out. Can't get my black and white clowns to host my RBTA for the life of me. Oh well, this RBTA moved into my little Clown Gobies territory, and it decided it would host it. Never seen anything quite like it. I was under the impression that clown fish were the only ones able to...

    Hey everyone. I recently picked up a nice acrylic frag tank (about 15 gallons, 24"x24"x6") from ol' Aquamanic. I added pics and will update progress on my build thread, but wanted to probe the minds of LARC for thoughts on my layout/ plan. I plan to have this frag tank about 10 feet or so away...

    Nikon D5000

    so my father let me borrow his Nikon d5000, which I understand is a pretty good camera. Let me preface this whole thread by saying I know zero about photography, but still believe I should be able to get some accurate renditions of my corals captured in some pics. I have read the basics about...

    Best Aquarium Tongs?

    Got a silly question, but need an honest review. Can anybody suggest some really nice aquarium tongs (coral grabber, reacher, etc)?

    Warner Marine EcoBak and NextReef SMR1 Reactor

    I just setup my new Bio Pellet reactor with Warner Marine's EcoBak. I wanted to start a thread and allow people to ask questions, make suggestions, and track the progress of these BP's.

    So I was reading through our local forum here in Houston called Marsh and somebody suggested making a nice little icon for all the iPhone users out there. So instead of a screenshot of a white page when you bookmark it to your phone, we could get a larc icon. Turns out to be a pretty simple...

    New Vortech

    So I wonder what the new Vortech will be that Ecotech will be releasing this weekend at MACNA? I'm thinking it's gonna be a bigger model finally. One tailored to larger tanks so you don't have to buy 6 x MP40's. Maybe a swivel adjustable type wetside too? That would be big too, but maybe not...
