    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...

    Hey Everyone - So I made the mistake of buying a cheap garbage can to serve as an RO reservoir. After about a month of use, it sprung two small leaks in the bottom and needs to be replaced. I now have a "heavy duty" rubbermaid 32 gallon trash can that I'll be using to hold the water. I had my...

    Ok, the time has come and I can't hold on to these tanks I love any longer if I'm going to get moved to Canada. I'm going to start with selling the LR, then the fish and critters ('cause I can't catch them with the rock in the way and I don't have a large container to move anything into)...

    I got the Coralife Super Skimmer 125 for my 55g tank and 20g sump. I have had water in the tank for 1 week, and I am already frustrated with it. In my book, the price I paid was not cheap. It was certainly less than some of the better ones, but this thing seems useless. It is nearly...

    I mesh modded 2 impellers last year for my Euroreef 12-1. About 6 months ago the skimmer started randomly overflowing. It got to a point where it overflows once or twice a week dumping the skimate that has collected for a couple days back into the tank:( I have tried everything to get it to...

    Time for Amanda's stupid question of the day. I have my incoming water running thru filter media, and a carbon packet in my sump. Nothing else, unless you count a buttload of equipment (skimmer, UV sterilizer, phos. reactor). I know bioballs are a no-no, but is there anything else needed in the...
