  2. Skimmers & other filtration
    Every one says that I should not use the pleated paper canister filter that is part of my 75 salt water aquarium set up that has been in my attic for 25 years. That, along with the trickler filter and bio balls, was state of the art in the 80's. What is the problem with using such a...

    Hello all, I'm new here and not quite adjusted to the posting format and search function, so forgive me if this question is asked frequently. I have been keeping mixed reef tanks for about 18 months and I am all about learning as much as I can from the pros. My question is: what kind of...

    Alright so upon much reading, I am wondering if I need to just pull the cartridges or leave them running. I am fighting HA but trying to do as much as possible to remedy that problem. I am doing WC every two days, my params look great according to my LFS. I am running a skimmer and it is...

    Hello again all. I am considering incorperating some filter socks into my sump. It is a oldfasion style wetdry with 2 drains comming from both corners of my 125. I have gutted it. I used to have the drip plate still in there with a pad but didn't like the noise it made with all the water...

    Hello, I wrote earlier about a slight nitrate problem. After recent water change it is slightly improved and I vaccumed the gravel. Tank looks better if nothing else. Nitrates still elevated to 10-20ppm. I am now considering getting a canister filter to suppliment refugium. What is the opinion...

    I have a 28 gal jbj nano cube. Would love to incorperate a filter sock but can not figure how to fit it in and which one to get that would work. Any thoughts?
  11. Tank Specs
    I have a 30 long tank that I am wanting to set up as a reef tank. While I would prefer to get a t5 36x4 I can get a 96w x2 for less than half the price so thats probably the direction I will go. Probably get a maroon clown and perhaps a jawfish for verts. Inverts its hard to tell yet. I'm...

    Just as the title suggests, I have a 10 gallon tank sitting unused in my garage just begging to be setup. I also have a brand new JBJ 70W HQI clamp light that I have never used yet. I'm not sure what to keep or what to do with this 10 gallon. Any suggestions out there???

    Okay, I received an email message today from Pet Solutions about specials on Aquarium Cleaning Products. Well, it had a link to this product and I just had to take a look at it. Obviously curiosity got the better of me. :) I am wondering if anyone has ever seen one of these in person or even...

    Is there anyway to reduce the noise of a HOB overflow? This is the model I have... PF-300
  17. General Reef Discussion
    After extensive reading and gathering feedback, I've come up with a drawn plan for my "fish and invertebrate with live rock only" tank. Its kinda different from the norm, since 1. My overflow compartment does not have holes drilled in 2. I plan to reuse my canister filter despite incorporating...

    I have a couple of questions i was hoping somebody could answer for me. I have a 72 gal reef tank(3yrs old) with 90lbs LR. For filtration i use a 25 gal refugium with a dsb and chaeto, halimeda, mangroves, and 1 other macro i dont know the name for. The protein skimmer is a remora pro hob. For...
