  1. The THINK Tank
    OK... so I said it. I'm going to build one of those DIY ATS's for my sump. It seems small, so I don't imagine it will do much harm, even if it crashes. Whats more, from algal blooms in the main tank, I've seen nothing takes up nutrient like algae. So any ideas on what type of algae I should...

    I took apart one of my MagDrives yesterday. It was not starting up reliably after being turned off, so I figured it probably had calcium carbonate buildup inside. I was correct, but I also found the impeller magnet chamber was filled with rust (not solid hunks of rust, but really fine...

    Dear G and G, Can you guys list what you think to be the most important test kits and why??? PH, Nitrate, Alk, Calcium, Magnesium, salinity and tds. I have my own thoughts and I know after a while you can get a feel for how levels are by how happy your tank is, but what should even a long...

    I have not shopped for or bought a skimmer in something like 8 or 9 years. I have not thought much about skimmers in about 8 or 9 years. I know almost nothing about current thinking about skimmers. When I last shopped for skimmers, the cool, new, super-nifty, super-effective skimmers were...

    Can I just use a maxijet powerhead for my auto top-off system or should I look for a small pump? I have a 75g main with a 20H sump. I am going to be using my ACIII to control the top-off based on the float switches, I haven't decided on yet. Thanks

    With EB coming in the very near future, it would be nice to take EB on some of the local tanks around town. I am more than happy to host, but would like some other people to as well. Otherwise, we'll have to drag him to cheeseland to see the bryopsis farm at tico mike's. :D There are plenty...

    I remember reading in several places (both online and in a couple reef books) that there are some professionally ran tanks that use a giant water trough with macro and micro algae to control most of the filtration within a reef system. Anyone have any input on this concept? I have retired the...
