  1. Water movement (pumps & wavemakers)
    Back in the dizzay I had a 55gal display tank with 150 gallons of sump/refugium/misc in the garage. Around 200 gallons of total water volume. It was a great system, I did a lot of research, and it treated me well. That was a decade ago and things have changed. On top of that, it turns out I...
  2. Water movement (pumps & wavemakers)
    I need your help to find a silent, reliable, and powerful pump. I have two one inch PVC downtubes located at the top of the water level (not a bottom drilled tank). I am looking for a powerful pump, but clearly not something that will overflow my two 1-inch downtubes. This is going in a 40gallon...

    Hello, I am going on vacation this Sunday for 1 week and no one will be here to maintain my 10 gallon reef. I am looking for a nice auto top off system. I bought a tsunami ATO system but the water drops too low before the pump kicks in, keep in mind this is a 10 gallon with no sump, or at least...

    Hi guys, I have a question for you. I am about to set up a sump for my tank, but I want to build a safety system to prevent overflow at the tanks and at the sump. What I am planning to use is a regular float valve to prevent over flow at the sump, and I am thinking of using a float swith to...

    Hi, I am planning to wire 2 float switches and 2 12V DC solenoids (5W) in series. I assume that I should use a 24V DC power source? Also, what amp power source will I need? thanks, David

    I started out trying to break into the Reefing world back in 03. I planned and planned, and even purchased a 75G tank, had it drilled, built a stand and canopy before my Industry and job at the time took a nosedive. I managed to keep a 5 Gallon Nano Tank for awhile, but eventualy it had to go as...

Here is what we will be picking up...
