    A few winters ago my Minibow 7 got wiped out with a 48 hour power outage ice storm :cry: But last weekend I decided it was time to start it up again (since I had most of the equipment already). So I did. Basic setup to include: Minibow 7 AquaClear 300 w/ surface skimmer atachment 50w Tronic...

    I'm creating a fuge so I can grow some chaeto under full light 24/7. I've got limited space under my 55 gal tank, so I'm making this fuge out of a 10 gal tank. (Don't flame me, I've given this thought, and forgive me this small experiment before I go to a 120 gal tank; then my 55 will be the...

    My tank was getting too hot so I bought a small Honeywell fan from Target and it cooled the tank down by 5 degrees. I mounted it in the cabinet so that it is blowing right over the sump. It has a little keyhole on the base that you can hang from a screw like you would a clock. Pics below.

    I came home last night from my trip to TO which I left to on Saturday morning. I figured 2 days was not bad to shut down my pump for. I left 3 MJ 1200s running for flow, but I guess I should have attached an air hose to a couple of them. When I got home all my fish were dying. I mean how do they...

    I am just curious as to your evap. rates. How often do you have to top up? I am asking because I just set up my 75 its been running for a couple days, so far I have had to put in about 4 - 5 cups of water per day, or else my pump would run dry? is this normal? My other tanks barely needed one...

    When i started in this hobby I was dying with all the stuff i was told i HAD TO DO... test everything on a regular basis, fill the water every minute, watch this, add that... it is enough to make a newbie scream and run the other way... between the testing and skimming and trying to keep my...

    Saw this on Marine Depot (Ultralife Float Switch, link below) it says it can control a pump which I guess measn that it can be used to make an auto topoff system. Anybody have experience with this one or something like it? Any recommendations? I'm looking for something more reliable than my...

    I want to use kalk in my system but dont have room to put a container over my sump to gravity feed it. Is there an alternative or am I out of luck?

    Hi all, I am new to the forums as well as reef keeping and thought I would seek some expert advise before buying my tank. I have experience with salt tanks, but have never had a reef. I travel often I am rarely gone for more than a week. I want to create a low maintnace tank that is...

    The ARC meeting on lighting got me thinking about upgrading my stock lighting in my 24 gallon Nanocube DX, which currently runs 2X 36W combo 10K/actinic PC's. I'm thinking about stuffing a 70W HQI metal halide in there. Several people have done this on the nano-reef.com forums, so I'll have help...
