  3. Skimmers & other filtration
    I've read that they aren't the best out there, but out of the brands I know off hand(don't want to try something I've never heard of) they seem to be getting the best prices off of ebay. Since they're over-rated at up to 100 gallons, would one work well on a 20 gallon tank? Oh, also, are these...

    Is it possible to overskim? I have a CPR on my 29g tank, and it doesnt really seem to work too great. It works just enough to keep the tank clean, and its rated for up to 65g. On my 65g, can I put a skimmer rated up to 125g? Or would that take out too much waste? Some people say you need to...

    Hey folks, got a question for ya: I'm having trouble keeping my alk, pH, and CA up in my 10 gallon nano, and have just hooked up a kalk drip to see if that makes things easier. Question is, on such a small tank, how many drops per second should I set it at? I just hooked it up and it's running...

    Hi everyone, I have some questions about those refugiums that one can hang on the tank. 1) When an HOT refugium is setup, can you use the water from your maintank? Should you have a seperate light for it. 2) Should a person have a skimmer in the refugium? 3) I have read that people grow...

    Ok the title says it all. My girlfriend was talking to me the other night wanting to know about prices on things like skimmers and lights. I plan to build the stand and maybe a canopy for it. She doesnt want to spend more than $100 total in lights and would like to be able to keep soft corals...

    I know you guys probably get this alot, but I have had a 40 gallon freshwater tank for about a year now, and I was thinking about converting it to saltwater. What are all the equipment/supplies I will need to buy, and any other tips/suggestions to starting one out for a beginner?

    Carpet surfing that is. :cry: He was a neat little bugger. No more fish for me until I get a light diffuser/egg crate for the top of my tank. I hate it when the critters go and commit suicide. :bawling: Stacy
