    Hello everybody. As of today I have started my complete DIY system. First a little background info about myself and how this came to be: My first tank was a 55 gallon reef that I started back when I was 17 (now 22) and it went strong for three years. Being a student with three jobs was rough...

    Setting up a 90 gallon BB SPS tank and need recs on a new skimmer. I really like my current coralife super skimmer 65 and have thought about getting the CSS220. I've also been looking at the MR-1 by my reef creations. It's a good bit more money and would require me to buy a new pump as well...

    I was out of town for a couple days. I just got home...my RIO 1700 has failed (I know...it was bound to happen). The RIO is used a the powerhead for my skimmer...which is integrated in the filter system. What powerhead can I buy or mod for the skimmer? The 1700 is rated for about 650 GPH...

    I've been doing alot of reading, and alot of folks say not to connect your main circulation pump to your GFCI outlet, since over the years it may cause some leakage but since the plug doesn't go in the water and they are thermally protected that this small bit a leakage won't cause any problem...

    I have been buying equipment, building stands and hoods and thought I had pretty much everything under control for my new 120 reef until I started thinking about plugging this all in in my living wall receptacle. I am quite certain that I have to much stuff going into one receptacle. Please give...

    If anyone has a pump they would like to sell, I would be interested. The ideal one would be 800 g/hr or greater, with 3/4 in and 3/4 out. Tony

    Hi all, Now that I've decided on a CLS for my main circulation I've got some MaxiJet 900's I don't need. I thought that I could use a couple & make mini spraybars that could be hidden behind the rockwork inside the tank. Good idea? Not worth the trouble? Stupid idea? Thanks!

    I am new to salt water and I just got a 55 gallon aquarium for xmas that I have "dreams" of setting up as a reef tank. I almost like the anenome and other invertabrates more than the fish, however I would ultimately like to have some clown fish. I would also love to have a lionfish but I...
