    Ok so I am looking at installing a DYI sump. Made out of a 20Gal long. For now It will just create water flow as I currently have a HOB Protein Skimmer and will need to save up for a Skimmer to go into the Sump. My question is: Has anyone ever done or come across someone who has built a box...

    How many times did you sketch out your dream idea for a tank, sump, fuge, etc. before actually building it? I already know the answers to this question will be varied, with most stating, "millions of times." I get that most of us, myself included, are visual in nature, and prefer a graphic...

    I am planning to start my first salt water aquarium. I did a bunch of research, and I have a plan forward: I plan to build my ~30 Gallon tank into a wooden stand with the sump below it, hidden by doors. Once I get it set up, I will run it for a few days, then put the salt in and circulate it...

    Hello all! So I have been eating up all of the excellent information here on this site and I think have a good plan for my first saltwater setup. I was wondering if you guys could look over anything and see if I missed something important. Like I said, this is my first ever saltwater (reef...

    I setup the sump on my new 100 gallon and the HOB overflow is pretty old. The interior cup is actually warped (from age?). The outer box has 2 pipes. The main drain pipe uses the float with straw method for eliminating sound. Since I had no idea what he was talking about when the previous...

    Hi guys, Just thought I would share something with you about overflows. Firstly, i did the usual, went in to a store and got a quote of like £110 for one ... this clearly was not going to happen. Then i did the usual "whats on youtube" to find the pvc overflow ...

    So I was going to get a 20 gallon long to go below my 55 gallon tank, but it was 1.5 inches too wide to fit. Would it be possible to connect two 10 gallon tanks to do basically the same thing? I came up with a design; what do you guys think?

    I asked in General Reef discussion if anyone could identify the craig's list skimmer I bought, no responce. LFS said it is Chinese knockoff.
