    I was wondering would a AquaClear 70 with all the equipment in the box installed would cause high nitrates? Base off my Sera Nitrate test kit I have been showing 50 mg/l (second to highest reading) even after a few water changes.

    Hello, new to the forum and am pulling my hair out - I just got a wonderfulpresnet from hubby of a 60 gallon tank. HOWEVER the cabinet it came with has one shelf which cannot be removed. The space available is about 30 x 10 wide x 14 tall. NOT ENOUGH room for a wet dry or ANYTHING. I really...

    I recently took 2) 70 aquaclears. Dropped 2) aquaclear 30 propellers in them. So now I have all the room of the 70s but not way to much flow. I have the flow of the 30s. I have a in tank protein skimmer tucked away in one and the other has a In Tank media basket in it. I have a YouTube video...

    Well I'm fairly new to the "saltwater" aspect of the hobby with about 9 months under my belt starting with a 90 gallon witch was too much for my budget. I have had freshwater tanks ever since I was able to put things together.. Anyway I started my 29 gallon tank 5-6 months ago. Its just a basic...

    Ok guys I thought I would share how I turned simple Aquaclear filter into a HOB refugium. First a word about the Aquaclear. As a HOB filter it works well but many DIYers have come up with dozens of ways to modify these little gems into a refugium. Despite how you feel about refugiums, you cant...

    I have an Aquaclear HOB that I was looking to convert into a small refugium. Well, the impeller is making a loud kind of grinding noise. I looked it up online and everyone said to put vaseline on the motor to help the impeller move more slowly. But, I think they were talking for freshwater not...

    Hi everyone, I'm new, so let me apologize in advance if I ask any obvious questions. I have a lot of experience with high tech freshwater planted aquariums, but am interested in branching out into reef tanks. I know that they say it's better to start with a larger aquarium, but I never like to...

ALGAE!!! that no matter what i did would not go away. that and since its for a nano and mostly going to be corals, a good idea to have some extra water movement. so can anyone suggest a decent...

    Alright so i'm just starting up my first reef tank. Its a 20 high. According to testing it is done cycling, but i'm going to let it sit for a while before anything goes in. Two days ago I modded my aquaclear. I'm new so i'm no expert. But I saw someone that modded his aquaclear that looked...
  13. Skimmers & other filtration
    I'm considering replacing the powerhead on my protein skimmer. I think the skimmer is a modded bak pak,pak bak 2, or some bak pak "offshoot." I think the current powerhead is supposed to pump about 275ish gph, and the aquaclear 70 is supposed to pump or peak around 400gph. I was hoping to get...

    I have been reading this board off and on for the last year or so when I first started a 20 gallon tank. My tank is fully established and I use an Aqua Clear for water flow only. I threw out the poly bag and carbon bag...the filter is "rated" for a much larger tank. I left the sponge in it...
