    So I had a 20 gallon reef tank about 2 years ago, but was forced to take it down due to a sudden move. My tank had a pair of Tomato Clowns, 2 Peppermint Shrimp, and a full clean up crew. Overall the tank had good levels and it grew quite a few easy coral like GSP, Mushrooms, and some other...

    I am setting up my first refugium and Ineed help with choosing a pump. I am using a fluval 405 as a way to draw the water from the main tank to the refugium which is 340 gph flow. I don't have a drilled tank and I thought this would be a good idea because if the power went out than both the...

    Bought 2 fluval 300W heaters to cook my rock and after 6 days I came home put my hand in the water and was shocked! Water had got inside the electronics of one of them. Scares the crap out of me to use them with livestock now. What the heck? You'd think they would get a defect like that down to...

    Hey All! Just moved over my corals and live rock from my 5gal over to my new 12gal Fluval Edge! I really like the design, but functionally it was a PITA to place the aquascape! All in all I really like the design, and can't wait to finish populating it with corals. Still unsure about which...

  15. Skimmers & other filtration
    Hi. I'm currently using a Fluval 404 as my MAIN filtration unit. I am using a prizm skimmer as well, and it is quite finnicky. After reading a bit, I can see canister filters arent well loved however, for the sake of my survival (wife) after buying this I am stuck with it. What I'm worried...
