  1. Water movement (pumps & wavemakers)
    I am plumbing a 360 gal Tank, 8'Lx2'Wx3'H - BareBottom. I have 2 returns, 1 in each corner. I am building a Coast to Coast overflow to Tie in the 2 corners.:) The Sump will run 1800 GPH. The CLS draws water from back of the overflow and returns it over the top. I currently have a Reeflo...

    I'm in the planning phase of my new 250gl, and I'm not up to speed on all the latest toys and gadgets. Especially where flow is concerned. I hope TRT can help me out with this. There will be several large anemones in the tank, so I really don't want a bunch of power heads or moving parts. I...

    So I had wet carpet today and found my Dart CLS pump leaking around the pump input shaft. Luckily this happened today and I caught it fairly quickly before I went out of town all next week. So this pump is probably only a year and a half old. Should this be happening already? I haven't done...

    I'm gathering some info for my 180 gal build. I would like a CLS, but I need some input first. 1) How many returns for a 180 and what size pump (GPH) 2) Would is be less energy effective having a CLS? Since Koralias only use a few watts. Thanks.

    After completing my first reef tank two years ago, it is definitely time to upgrade. I am also looking at getting my first house, so I figured it would be perfect timing to setup a new tank. Hopefully I can have the majority of this tank constructed in the next three months and then add water...

    It was warm enough to get out in the garage and start my stand today so I thought I would also start a build thread. Here is a run down of my system as it is today. (I change my mind a lot) 90 gallon All-Glass aquarium Custom stand and canopy 30 gallon sump 15 gallon refugeium DIY recirc...

    After admiring reef tanks from afar for many years I am finally at a point in my life where I can take up the hobby. It will still be a few months before I can begin but until then I can do more research and perfect my system design. Below are some 3D models of my first design. Tell me what...

    Alright, so I got the tank today! Its about 190 gallons. Its going to take a while to finish, since we have a wedding in September, and will probably be moving back to Fresno to buy a house. So this isnt going to be quick, but hopefully will be worth while. The tank is 60" long, 36" deep...
  10. Substrate Free Tank Husbandry (Bare bottomed)
    Just some more planning for my 75gallon BB tank. This is what part of the CLS returns will look like in conjunction with the sump returns. The two "c" shaped items on each end of the tank (top view) will be part of the closed loop. Basically it is a T with a 45 on each end. The lines show the...

I have kept high quality koi in very large ponts for the last 6 years. Ive always wanted a salt tank but never new much about them. A family member...

    I've considered buying a backup return pump. I guess my fear is if something ever went wrong with the pump, not sure how fast I could get my hands on an exact replacement. I have a Seqence reeflo which is generally readily available, but a somewhat expensive piece of equipment to have sitting...

    I've recently moved and I no longer have a deticated circuit for my tank (and it's almost impossible to add one where the tank is now). So I've been looking at LED lighting from PFO and AQUAILLUMINATION as a way to save power on the circuit (and maybe money in the future). Anyone here made...

    The "other" board is talking about the new Octo Xtreme, which has 3 models, the 160, 200, and 250 (the latter two looking like copies of the ATI Bubble Master 200 ($550) and 250 ($760)). For $275, 325, and 475 these look like a great deal, especially since they use Sicce pumps (same ones used...

    I am planning a CLS for my new 135-gallon. The CLS will run off a Dart and here's my current plan: So, starting with the Dart, I'm going to have a T with threaded union ball valves on both outlets of the T. One outlet of the T going to the spraybar through a 3/4" bulkhed near the bottom back...

    Alright, I've been in this hobby about a year and have had an AP24 and really hate it. I was going to buy new lighting because a 72w MH doesn't really cut it. Then realizing this tank would be too much for my mother to take care of during my training in the Navy I decided to use the same...
