    I am plumbing a 75 gal tank. Is an 800 gph return pump too much? This pump is a leftover from a 120 gal.

    I do not have a good experience with Acroporas. They keep bleaching after a couple of weeks from delivery. I usually get everything mail ordered. So I guess there's much stress on them in the shipping process. But what are the best ways to keep them alive and thriving? My tank is new... about 3...

    I am selling my nano. It is a good tank. It was up for just over a year and everything flurished. At least it did until I went out to Jacksonville FL for 7 weeks. It wasn't taken care of when I was gone (water wasn't topped off and it was over fed). I lost a lot of hard coral and a few softs...

    What are the disadvantages to using a hang on tank overflow? Is there a way to use one so that there is no chance of flooding?

    I am trying to calculate the flow that I should have in my tank and was wondering if there is a reccommeded amount of floe that should be in a tank. Kinda like the LR to Gallons kinda thing?? I would like to know how many GPH I should be turing in my tank. Thanks Mike

Before I drill for the overflow bulkhead, I would like more ideas on how to make a quiet surface skimmer that takes up minimal space, & doesn't block too much light. ( I'm...
