    So i just upgradeed to a 120 and would like to be able to frag corals and what not. What are your guys thoughts on using a HOB refugium to use as a frag tank. Ideally i would hang it off of my sump so i dont have to look at it. I have two lights i could use on it. One takes two 9 watt compacts...

    Hello everyone! I really appreciate all the information and support I am getting from my fellow reefers here at TRT! -Has anyone tried converting a Liberty 150 HOB filter to a refugium? If not, do you think it will work with this type of filter? I hear lots of great stuff on the AC filters...

    i just got some Zoanthids and polyps to ad to my 55 gallon setup. Do I need to change my feeding practices and also change to a reef salt mix? What kind of care other than light do they need. Also would a Blue Hippo Tang (Dory) be to much for my Tank? Current setup: 55 gallon ( All water...

    I am designing my own HOB refugium for my 55. I am either going to modify a HOB filter or go get some acrylic and build one from scratch, but I have a few questions: - What sort of flow rate should I have in the fuge? The larger HOB filters have a flow rate of <> 330gph, and that is too much...

    Ok, so my superskimmer makes WAY too many bubbles, its ridiculous. So I was going to buy a 12" HOB Refugium where the skimmed water can go to, then trickle into the fish tank. The only ones I saw even close to nice enough are the CPR ones, which end on ebay for about $70 dlvd. Then there are...
