    About every 10 to 15 minutes a jet of micro bubbles comes out my return from the sump. I have baffles in the sump and except for these 1 second instances there is no bubble problem. It takes about a minute for them to clear up after they shoot out. What could be causing this? How can I stop it...

    Are Octopus or ASM skimmers better? Or, is there a better skimmer in the same price range? I have a 90 gallon with live rock and medium fish load. I will be adding softies soon.

    Can anyone recommend a good hang-on skimmer for a 75 gallon. I plan on upgrading in a few years so I could get one that is rated for a bigger tank. Does a better skimmer help with stable Ph? Thanks

    OK, here we go... I bought a 90g reef-ready tank from Sea Dreams to replace the 55g tank sitting in my family room. I wanted something a little larger without going to a 6' tank. I will be running it with a 45g sump which should give me a nice volume of water. The sump used to run DNGSPOT's...

    Anybody have some insight to what is the best hang on skimmer for a 37 tall. I currently have a cpr but it does not seem to skim as much as I would like. I have to empty the cup about every 5-7 day's. Am I doing something wrong or is there simply a better hang on that I should be using.

    Mine is in need and it is becoming inefficient.

    I've got absolutely no clue what to do. I've been so dang intimidated for so long, but today...I did something that I've been telling myself that I could do and should do for a long time. I bought some zoos, some yellow star polyps, and some mushrooms. Now...what is the best/easiest way...

    After reading other posts on here I think my canister filter is to blame. No carbon in there, just the sponge filter and the bio ceramic tubes. Right now my tank is 2 months old with 3 hermit crabs in there. All other levels are good (by the jungle dip stick) I'm skimming but not much is...

    So I finally registered after lurking on here for a few months. Lots of good stuff in old threads. Anyway I finally jumped into the marine tank hobby but have, I think, hit a small snag. The water in my tank is at 80 degrees and the air temp is 75 where the tank is located. I'm thinking the...

    I didn't want to hijack Amy's thread, but someone commented about how the powerheads were setup and how it could be disturbing the surface too much which can harm the tank. I have a 55g w/ a AquaC Remora Pro and 2 seio 620s. I noticed that if I do not have my biowheel running, there is a film...

    i have a large quartz rock i would like to put in my fowlr setup, will that hurt anything? and i plan on having a reef down the road so would it also be ok for that too? also, i dont think i will build a skimmer for my tank as it would have to be about 6 ft tall (110g), so im thinking aquac...

    OK, i'm going to change my 110g freshwater over to a saltwater tank soon and just want to clear some things up....First, it is going to be a fowlr tank eventually going to reef..Now the questions I have are; 1. can I add LR as I go, or do I need to put it all in at once? 2nd, do I have to have...
