    Hi all...I have a 300w Visitherm heater and I cannot seem to get my 125 gal (55 sump) up to temp...I think it is def cold in our basement, but it should be able to get there (it is not 50 degrees down there). It is running all the time so I know it is working and it is not a matter of the dial...

    I am thinking about ways to eliminate equipment from inside my tank. Its only a 12g eclipse so not many options. The one I did come up with though is to get rid of my Ebo Jager heater, although they are the best, and getting a fully submerible heater. Then sticking it in the last chamber (the...

    Okay...So I've read up, and I know most people would suggest NOT having a mangrove fuge, but I have my heart set on it...so I'm going to do it! Beneath my 30 gallon Indo-Pacific reef tank will be a 10 or 20 gallon fuge (on display), and below that (and behind it in a separate room off-display)...

    We have a 30-gallon Indo-Pacific reef tank that we are just getting started. The system is currently running with live rock, and I'm adjusting my params. Thinking down the road a bit, we're researching corals for this tank. We'd like to start from the bottom up, so our first question is about...

    For a bunch of reasons (some beyond my control), I am buying "cured" live rock at the LFS today. It's been in their tank for a month under halides and looks great. I will be adding it to a new 30 gallon tank that has been running with just saltwater for a week. I think I'll go about 3/4 fiji and...

    I tested my tank with a multimeter because I was feeling little tingles when I stuck my hand in. I am getting a constant 15 volts. When I unplug my heaters it drops a bit as well as with power heads. When I unplug my mag 9.5 the voltage drops to like 5 volts. Is this normal?

    My 125 system has been running for 6 months and I recently starting getting a slight shock when I reach into the tank. Initially, I thought it may be the lights, but that has been overruled. They are shielded by tempered glass and no salt crud exists here, plus they are elevated 6" above water...
