    I have a new bakpak RR (no bio bale). How do I get rid of those tiny bubbles? I've had it running about two weeks and I still have bubbles. My air intake is almost closed. I've had an ich outbreak - lost 7 out of 10 fish. So now it's fishless, but I still have shrimp, rose bta, serpent...

    So I'm looking into a DIY skimmer for my 125 w/ 55G sump...found some plans I like but I have a question...I have some unused PH's sitting around...I think a Maxi-Jet 1200 is probably the most powerful of the bunch...could this be used as an adequate skimmer pump?

    Hey Folks!!! I have a 20 gallon mixed reef setup and I want to pick up a better skimmer for it. I am currently running the RedSea Prizm skimmer, and I don't feel that it is doing the trick for me. I was considering the coralife 65 super skimmer, but I am not sure. Any suggestions would be...

    Ok here is what I have, 1- 150 watt coralife hqi with xm 10k and 2- 39 watt t-5 vho on an icecap 430 ballast. Would it be benificial or over kill to upgrade the same coralife metal halide fixture to a 250 watt with a new ballast? Any advice would be nice. Thanks Jberd

    My wife offered to get me a nano to start a reef in for Christmas. I was just looking for some suggestions on what you think would be the best things for me to ask Santa for. It will probably be less than 20g and set up for soft and LPS corals.

    Hey Guy, I'm set up another tank and its that time to stock. So could you please shoot me some ideas, I have started to run dry. If you could include species both sessile and non-sessile that would be great. Thanks again

    well why am i building a 10 gallon when i just started a 35 hex less than 3 months ago. the answer is.... i have no clue. but this should be fun. i thought the idea up today while i was playing video games. its gonna be like a room divider tank only smaller. i dont think i want to go with a sump...

    Ok, so the new tank is in. We went and picked it up today, and it LOOKS huge. But after doing the math, its not. Its 60"lx24"tx15"d, and if I do the math right, thats only like 93 gallons? Thats kinda weird, this tank looks pretty dang big to me, and 93g doesnt seem too big. 93g or not, a Powder...

    im setting up a 55g FO (no live rock or live sand) and the tank will be covered with a standard flourescent hood. i bought a maxi-jet 900, it has a venturi option which will burst air bubbles but im not sure if i should use this option? would it add more oxygen to the water? or will it make way...

    why do you need a protein skimmer for a reef tank? is there really that much waste from them?
  17. Nano Reefs
    I have a 10 gallon that im thinking about running a skimmer on. I want a CSS-65. Is this over kill for a 10? Im also wanting to hang it off a Aqua Clear 110, will this work too? Thanks.
  18. Reef Build-Off 2007
    Well, I didnt initially even know about this thread until today. I thought there was only a nano build off (Which got me tempted to start up my 10g again). I was already on planning on starting a 60g cube, so why not enter the contest and build the reef tank? Here are my specs so far: Tank...
  19. Reef Build-Off 2007
    Hi all. At first I wasn't going to join the nano build-off, but decided late in the game to join in. I have some of my initial build pics, but not all so I'm hoping it won't count too much against me. I just couldn't resist the build off. So as the title suggests, my tank is a 20 gallon high...
  20. Skimmers & other filtration
    I've read that they aren't the best out there, but out of the brands I know off hand(don't want to try something I've never heard of) they seem to be getting the best prices off of ebay. Since they're over-rated at up to 100 gallons, would one work well on a 20 gallon tank? Oh, also, are these...
