    So this is probably a goofy question but while it's clearly understood fish create a bio load in our tanks and we manage quantities, I am recently converting from FOWLR to a new 90 reef. So my goofy question is... does coral add to bio load? I'm sure the "feeding" of course does but like you...

    Looking to buy a biocube for my dorm. I am looking for either a 14 or 29. The tank can be empty or established. If you have one for sale, message me and send some pictures of the tank. Looking to get one ASAP.
  5. Lighting
    Ive recently purchased a Biocube 29g with no hood for a great deal however with no hood comes with no lights. I don't have the option of hanging lights from the ceiling so what are my best options. Looking for LED's at a reasonable price for soft coral. Ive heard PAR 38's are decent. What do you...

    I built a basic in sump upflow biopellet reactor out of a simple 2L soda bottle and a powerhead. The upflow style reactors I saw online took way too much space or were too small for my application (240gal+55gal). They were also rather pricey. A two liter soda bottle is enough to tumble at least...
  7. Dosing and reactor equipment
    I broke the barb off the outlet of the reactor when cleaning it. I just traded for it and was cleaning it out then broke it, just my luck. Anyone know if that is just a regular schedule 80 1/2 union or a special one? Ill call them tomorrow but its on my mind and i would like to know if i can...

    Has anyone actually used one or have one that can tell me about how they like it. I don't want to hear any speculations or anything like that just facts from personal experience(not being rude just want the facts). I can see how you can prevent channeling by having the fluidized media and...

    Not sure if is the place to put this, but I know there is a few of us doing the same tanks ( bio cubes). So I thought how cool would it be if we could compair info & show how good our tanks look after a certian time. But I dont want people to rush the cycle just to look good. That way we might...

    I have a 35 gallon wet/dry sump with bioballs on my 90 gal reef tank. I heard a rumor that they are not exactly the best filtration media to put in the sump....they make the nitrates high, and so on. Is this true? If so, is there any other material that could be better? Maybe those pieces...
