    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...

    Hello I have been out of the hobby for over 5 years now and I'm looking to get back into it. I had a coupe of 90 gal tanks (one reef and one fish only) in the past. I'm now looking at a 150 to 215 sized tanks. I live in a dry climate and water will evaperate at a high rate which is my first...

    Can someone help me quiet the water noise from the bulkhead tubing? I am finally setting up my 150 gal with the sump in my basement. I have two 1" bulkheads which connect to 1.5 inch flexible hose. I ran the two hoses to a T fitting behind the tank where they connect to a single 1.5 inch...

    I have the built in overflows on a 210 all glass aquarium that are hard plumbed into my wet room in the basement. I am using the standard AGA overflow kits. They are very noisy. Is there a way for me to quiet them down. Thanks Mike

    is there a way to cut or shorten bulkheads and not completely ruin the thread pattern? I am drilling the back of a 29 for external durso standpipes, but the bulkheads stick through so far. I really don't want the pipes sticking out 6" off the glass, but I don't know what to do. Any...

All items are in extremely good condition and have less than three months use on them. All items are approximately a year old, but...

    I need some help with my HOB overflow box. I prefer for the water level to stay about two inches below that black rim around my tank. It seemed like I could do it at first, but now it seems like my water level is above the box that sits on the inside of my tank. What could be causing the water...

    I'm in the process of designing a new tank and one of the things that annoys me about my current tank is the noise from the overflow. I have a Durso standpipe so the overflow part in the tank is dead silent, it's the bubbling and gurgling sound of water rushing into the sump that drives me...

    Hello all, quick question. I am setting up my glass tank with overflows (prolly corner) but I may go with a longer one in the middle of the tank only. I plan to house make some DIY Durso standpipes and returns inside. Anyone recommend any online sources to purchase the overflows. Any DIY links...

    With my new overflow box I have 2 3/4" drains that I want to turn into one....will a single 1" drain cope? (I think I've just answered my own question - I need to step up to 1 1/4" don't I?) And for geoff - I found this mod for durso standpipes to use in the confined space of a hang-on...

    Is there a rule of thumb for how many gph per tank size you want for a return pump in your sump. I have 75g tank with 2 x ~1.5" overflow pipes and a ~15-20g sump. I am looking at getting a mag 7. Will I be happy with this pump? I am elevating the water 2' at the most. The sump is next to the...

    We went out of town for the weekend. We got home and the water level on one of our corner overflows is fluctuating up and down. The total water level in the tank and sump is at our usual constant level. (We use kalkwasser drip to maintain constant level, so the level hasn't dropped any). My...

    I initially started this on my blog but realized no one could respond or give any advice so I thought I'd start a thread. I've been waiting 6 mos. for this! So I started out with this stand and a drilled glass tank. After thinking about my 4 year old son who can break just about anything I...
