    Hiya friends! I haven't seen much activity on this idea, so I'm thinking it's either improbable or...people just set up their tanks with much more forethought than I have :) I have 6 tanks on the first floor of my house, various parameters. To accommodate the newer saltwater setups and to get...

    Recently added a very pitiful Fiji/Bicolor foxface rabbit (mentione in Reef Fish Forum). All of his spines, the tip of his top beak and dorsal fins look eroded. He also has this odd, solid, single white patch on his lateral line. It's very defined, but doesn't seem to be spreading. The tank he...

    I have a hammer coral that used to have 2 big heads. Over the past month I've noticed one of the heads has stopped opening. On the other hand below the head that does open everyday I am starting to see about 4 or 5, what seems to be new heads growing. Is this normal, and do I need to do anything...

    I have a mag 9.5 pump for my 90 gallon tank and i was wondering how much of a difference in pressure it would be if i used 3/4 inch pipe for the return of the pump instead of the recemended 1 1/2 inch pipe, the 1 1/2 is just way to big considering i want to run the water into my chiller ( which...

    Okay So i have a 10 gallon tank with live rocks that nicely spaced out and coral but the only flow I'm getting is from my hang on filter. I want to add a power head I have(has the number 301 on it) and it's the smallest one I have. Would it be to much for my shrooms? I really want more flow...

    I know this is a commonly ask question, but still I have found little information that fits my particular needs. I apologize in advance if there is an official, easy way to find out what I need to know, but I have yet to find that in all of my google searches etc. First wanted to say thanks for...
  8. Water movement (pumps & wavemakers)
    Has anyone tried plumbing their return to a spraybar? I built a rock lift and I was going to take the return and run it along the back of my tank and spray under the rocks. Hoping this will keep good water movement and stop anything from setteling down to where it would be a pain to clean. If...

    in a 10 gallon tank, is a power filter that does 116gph, a protein skimmer that moves the water pretty well, and a powerhead too much, its not making it a whirlpool, but it moves the water pretty good

    I woke up 2day and my solana wrasse has a bump coming out of the top of his head. Sometimes he charges his reflection in the glass but usually only bumps his lips. Should i be worried about this bump?

    Today, as I was squirting the uppermost portion of my rocks with a turkey baster and hitting my lights with stray drops of water because the darn thing leaks, I came up with an idea. There are two problems with the turkey baster. 1) It requires that I submerge my arm in the tank to clean down...
