  5. Skimmers & other filtration
    I see they have these large canister filters (maybe they been around a long time ... ) but I was wondering how many are using them with Saltwater Reef tanks and if so do you like them? Like the Fluval series for example. Or do these canisters filter out too much of the "good stuff" in your...

    Hello to all, I am a newbie to the reef tank in all aspects. This is my first saltwater tank and I am hooked. I think the last fish tank i had was when i was 10 and i never took care of it. Good thing I went straight to a semi-big complicated tank. But everything has been going so easy and...

    Hi guys. My very post here, and its gonna be a pretty lengthy one. First, a brief intro to my fishkeeping history. I'm 24 this year, and have had a aquarium for most of the years. I dabbled in marine tanks for awhile, but that was 6 years ago when undergravel filters were still the rage. The...
