  1. Water movement (pumps & wavemakers)
    Hi all, I currently have two Hydor 425 gph circulation pumps and a MJ1200 return pump on my BC29. I like the Current Eflux circulation pumps and want to upgrade, however, the smallest size is 660 gph. Would one at full power be better than having two with reduced power on my Biocube? Thanks

    Hi, I'm preparing to buy my first fish for my nano reef, the blue green chromis in fact. I wanted to buy a small pack of them for them to school together, but I wasn't so sure they would like my nano tank with quite a bit of current flowing. It's enough where soft corals appear to be moving like...

    I attempted a water change tonight. When I put my vacuum into the water of my sump (pump end) I jerked my hand back. When I touched the water, I could feel an electric charge, almost like a steady static electric power. I've heard about this before, but never experienced it. I am a bit lost...

    Anybody out there using Current's Orbit Marine Pro programmable LED light. I saw a 72" that would fit my tank at my LFS. Goes for about $800. Just wondering if anybody is using it and could give me their opinion on how they like it...

    I was just curious who out there had the current Orbit Marine LED fixture over their reef tank. I have the 48-60" above my 75. I've only had my tank going for 3 months but so far everything looks really good. I love the features but was a little nervous because it uses 1/4 watt LEDs. My fixture...

    Well I have had my tank up and running for a little over a year now. I am interested in buying a wave maker to increase the current or flow of the water. I currently have a Hydor powerhead that is rated 425 gph. I have a 40 gallon breeder tank and want to give it that reef like motion in the...

    I have a 38 gallon tank with 45 lbs live rock (tank is 3ft long) and I added two 425 wavemaker (on opposite sides of tank)but it doesn't seem to make a strong enough current. What size is recommended to get a good current going that's not to strong but not to weak?

    I have a 65 gallon tank and I am wondering if i have to much flow. I am not sure what my flow is on my return. I have it returned with two loc line tubes with 4 inch fans at the end (green circles). They are both pointed right towards the glass to help deflect it and both towards the middle of...

    Hi, I am relatively new having a reef tank, had my aquareef 300 for around 6 months now and had a smaller 240 before that for a few months. I am having real problems setting up where my power heads are to achieve the best current. I currently do not have much coral at all, one goniopora spp and...

    Hey all! I currently have a Biocube 14. I recently bought a 70w sunpod off of a fellow reefer about a week ago. I am loving it as an upgrade (my corals do too!). But starting last night, it has been having a hard time turning on and firing up. When I flick the switch the fan turns on fine, but...

    Today started with me wanting to move a couple rocks around in my tank. I soon found myself almost completely moving my tank around. I had two 750gph circulation pumps, but thought maybe adding a third that i was fixed back into the tank. Is there a way i can tell if there is to much current in...

    Hi i have been having some trouble positioning my 2 800 gph powerheads and my 600 gph return. Right now the return and one of the powerheads are focused near my live rock and the other power head is on the other side of the tank pointing towards the front glass. I have tried a couple of...

    Hello everyone. I am new to the forum and looking for some input as to which t5 fixture I should put on my 40g breeder. I am planning to keep mainly softies and lps's, maybe a few sps's higher in the tank, as well as an rose bubble tip anemone. I will also have some fish in it, around 6-8. I am...
