    I have a 12gal AquaPod with the factory setup. However, I have taken everything out of the filter except for the sponge and a small bag of carbon to help with clarity. I have seen the Current USA Fission Nano Skimmer a couple times. I think I would be able to place it in one of the chambers in...

    I just got my fairly new 20gal nano setup (~1.5 month old) and its been running with out any problmes for the most part. The only thing I have been noticing is that there is a wierd film that floats ontop of the waters surface. When I blow on the film to break it up, it breaks into little plates...

    I returned my sea clone skimmer today. I picked up a coralife super skimmer to replace it. I'm afraid it may cause an overflow, and it's really big for my tank (20 gal high). I won't be using this skimmer for this tank. I'll just stick it in the closet for future use. I've narrowed down my...

    I have a 12 gallon nano that has been set up for about three months now. I did all my cycling and added livestock slowly. My ammonia was good in the beginning after my cycle. I waited about a month before I added anything. For the past two weeks I've been doing water changes every other day...

    Hi Everyone, I finally figured out how to reduce my picture sizes to something that was small enough to post. Unfortunately, these pictures are around 2 weeks old, so my most recent purchases aren't in them. I'll try to post more when my tank is more organized. Robyn

  15. General Reef Discussion
    I have a 12 gallon nano cube. I have lots of live rock and corals for such a setup, and been getting lots and lots of oil/protein on the water surface which is affecting water flow. I know the fission nano skimmers do not work, but i was wondering if anyone has attempted or successfully put on...

    I am curious what filtration options there are for a nano tank. I am setting up 12g Aquapod and I dont have any filtration on it. I notice that the back could fit a filter pad or something or maybe a bag of activate carbon. What do you people do?

    I was wondering if the Fission Nano Skimmer would be over kill on my 2.5 gallon tank? The Hob filter has a sponge and chemi-pure in it. Would the Fission Nano Skimmer fit in my 2.5 gal tank as well or is it to big? Thanks

    Has anyone ever attempted to custom build a skimmer right into one of the back compartments of an aquapod? I have a friend that wanted to buy a nano skimmer, but I told him not to since I've heard from more than one person that they are junk. So he thought about maybe building one right into...
