    Thoughts of shutting my tank down, husbandry has been somewhat lax in the DT. Dave asked for a picture of how I was using my sump to run GFO and carbon so hopefully this will clear things up a bit on how I'm doing just that. I had this sump custom built by Lifereef to be as versatile as...

    In the reef keeping world we tend to steer clear of any and all mechanical filtration. Why? Cause they build up detritus and lead to increased nutrients in the tank. Yet I see filter socks in a lot of reef tank sumps. What gives here? Why are we so against one style but ok with another?

    I finally picked up the Vortex Diatom filter I've been wanting to get. I'm going to use it as a vacuum cleaner to get the seemingly endless grains of sand that keep blowing out of my rock since I did the FSB. I'm just going to use it...

    Hi, Firstly hello to everyone. Im new to this site, though not to the hobby, i've been an intrigued reader for years but finally decided to get registered. I note with interest the vast majority of people on this site have a reliance on skimmers. I should therefore make it abundantly clear i...

    We just finished moving a couple of weeks ago. During the move I swapped from my 37 gallon cube to a 50 gallon breeder that had previously been my freshwater tank. I have a very light bioload, with about 50# of LR on a BB, two small fish, and some crabs a shrimp and one surviving snail. Setup is...

    Just got back into the hobby after 15 years. I bought a used, completely set up 45 gallon tank, with 1 clown, live rock and sand and corals. System had been set up for years and I simply transported to my house. I am completely baffled because when I was in the hobby years ago I had a wet/dry...

    What's the best way to go about mechanical filtration w/o a sump? Right now all I have for filtration is LR and an AquaC Remora skimmer, I have a Hydor 425gph and an Aqua Clear 50 ph for flow. Will a HOB filter work for what I need? I was looking at Fluval's new C series filters, anybody have...

    I started out trying to break into the Reefing world back in 03. I planned and planned, and even purchased a 75G tank, had it drilled, built a stand and canopy before my Industry and job at the time took a nosedive. I managed to keep a 5 Gallon Nano Tank for awhile, but eventualy it had to go as...
