    I currently have to Maxi-jet 1200's hanging over the back of my 55g. I would like to increase my flow. I do not have a drilled tank, so what options would I have? Bigger HOB's or a closed loop pump setup? Thanks for your help.

    Well, who am I kidding? It was bound to happen so why resist? Over the last few months the wife and I have talked about what would be my summer project this year since she knows that I HAVE to have something to occupy my time otherwise insanity sets in. I told her that my plan was to teach a...

    OK I know some of you thought it was sacrilege that I tore my 450-gallon system down. Numerous issues compiled and aided in the decision. First off was the system itself. I think anyone who builds their first dream system will tell you that a lot more thought went into building it than...

    Well here is an open ended topic. I'm getting stuff for my 72 now I'm looking at power heads. And would like to hear others suggestions. I have used maxijets, and power sweeps on smaller tanks. Tunze are just to expensive and I don't think are worth it. What about the Seio's I don't know...

    Hi all, I've manage to maintain a fresh water tank most of my life. I feel like I'm ready for the challenge of starting a salt water tank. I was thinking about a 60G acrylic bow front tank. I chose this size cause I have the ideal spot for it in my house. I want to put mostly coral and a few...

    I finally got the 65 mostly operational. The tank is full, the CLS is running and the sump and overflow actually work! I built the overflow my self out of 3/16" acrylic. It is a coast to coast style with one end being the input to the CLS. The other end dumps into a 20 gallon with baffles...
