Here is my 125 FOWLR. I bought this tank in 2003 from AquaZoo. :rolleyes: We broke it down in 2005 when we moved to FB, and didn't get it back up until November 2007. Before I knew TRT or NFMAS existed, I set up the tank they way it was before, crushed coral substrate.. BAH. I changed it to...

Hey everyone, I've been a lurker here for quite a while; I figured it was time to post something in return.

2 x 150watt Metal Halide (Sunpod 36")
2 Koralia 2 (650 gph)
AquaC Ev120 Skimmer (with a Mag...
I have the following equipment, and eventually would like to keep soft corals and maybe an anemone. I was wondering if my lighting will be strong enough.
Thanks in advance,
sunpod 36" w/ 2 14k 150watt halides
standard sump with a 500gph return

I'm slowly (stinking budget!) getting pieces together to set up my tank. Just wondering if anyone has a decent submersible heater laying around that you would be willing to part with? I have a 26g tank, so I think a 100w would work... Let me know!
Reg and I have been planning to put together a 40 breeder system for months. A few weeks ago, I finally found a new job (working in the aquarium industry no less!). This means we finally have the means to do what we first envisioned for this project. First, we both work full time, go to...
i have a terminator 2 skimmer that just stopped working..it never worked good and was also told it was a garbage skimmer from people on TRT ....id like to know what would be a good skimmer for my 180g reef tank that i woudnt not have to play with all the time for around $300 to $400 or so..id...
unfortunately, i need to get rid of my tank.
i started it a little over a year ago. but our family situation has changed, and i can't keep up maintaining it as good as i should.
this needs to go. and i'll probably set up a nano in the living room to replace it.
90 gallon acrylic seaclear (48 x...
I'm still new to this forum so if this is the wrong section,, I'm sorry, please move if needed.
What type of protein skimmer are you guys using and why do you think it's the best?
I'm getting ready to build a large reef tank (close to 1,000 gallons) and will more than likely have 2 sumps...
I recently posted a thread called "Yet Another Hair Algae Thread" and several of you supplied me with some great ideas and suggestions towards solving my hair algae problem. One issue discussed was improving my skimmer. Can anyone provide me with suggestions on a good, yet affordable skimmer...
If the deal goes through I will be buying the new 120G tank.
What skimmer would be good for the tank?
The Bubble masters and Deltecs are $$$$$$
I can consider a Euroreef.
Also the smaller footprint the better
I've been doing a lot of searching regarding sumps and just want to clear up some things I've read. Are the following statements true?
1. The water level will only go as high as the first baffle.
2. Skimmer baffles need to be an inch taller than the other baffles.
3. The section that drains into...
So im in the planning stages of my new tank...As of yet I think im going with a 210 AGA. This may change as I would like to go bigger, it is going in my house so it is space limited. Im kinda debating this because I really want 36" depth
Equipment is as followed so far.

When I bought my turbo snails they were all pretty and white now they are a really dark green almost black some are black with tiny pink spots on them. I do reg bi weekly water changes with ro/di water and have no algae problems in my tank. What would cause this?
I hooked my new skimmer(AquaC ev-180) up toady and I finally got it running around 1pm. So tonight I went to check on it before going to bed just to make sure it was running and low and behold its already skimming:eek:. Isn't that too soon? The book says it will take at lest 24...
Hi Everyone I woas wondering what all of you thought of the Aquac EV 180 skimmer? I have a 150 moderately stocked fis and softies with 30 gallon (Rubbermaid) sump. The water level never exceeds 9inches in the sump and I have 23 inches under the tank to play with.
I would love to hear any ideas...
