    First off, I added a new Circ Pump Koralia 550 to my tank that already had a Maxi Jet 900..1000 GPH. 1550 total. I pretty much have the 1000 aimed at the surface to give it good movement. I do not run a skimmer so I do weekly 10% water changes. Well after I added the second one I have a lot of...

    I just got a Biocube Circulation Pump for my 29 gallon today. Got it set up and it vibrates like crazy! It makes sooo much noise! I tried moving it to different places and everything. Even when it's off the wall it makes so much noise from vibrating. Thinking maybe I could just turn it on at...

    Hello all. I recently purchased an established Red Sea Max 130 tank and to my dismay there is no powerhead. I have always ran a small 240 gph in my little 12 gallon nano. I was just wondering if a 425 gph would be good for my newly aquired 34 gallon Red Sea. Thanks!
