  1. Skimmers & other filtration
    I have the usual sump with the bio balls and the drawer that pulls out to put the filter material in. I want to get rid of the bio balls and the pipe with the slits and put flexible hoses going into micron socks. I keep seeing sumps with seperate compartments for the skimmer etc... Right now my...
  2. Substrate Free Tank Husbandry (Bare bottomed)
    All of the pieces and parts have finally come together, and today my tank is born. April 25, 2008. I started this project on February 1st, and I've learned a TON of stuff since then. I'm happy with what I have at the start, but I'm sure upgrades and changes will come in time. Here it is, in...

    Woohoo a big word that I probably spelled wrong. What is the best way to catch these little buggers? I have a 200 micron sock that I change every 2~3 days but it is not catching all the little stuff. It seems like it is just cycling through my tanks ( display, frag, sump).

    I have traditionally utilized protein skimming to remove as many of the materials that I can, which would otherwise become part of the nitrate chain. I know there are complex systems in plenum, etc. all the way to simple periodic water changes to help keep nitrates at bay. Frankly, having been...

    Sorry, if such questions are not allowed: Where can I buy the cheap and good (not an oxymoron - API test kits or micron socks, for example) ozone generator for 90g fish tank? I spend a week for a search, $100+ only, if in stores. EBay has the professional quality programmable ones, but there is...
  8. The THINK Tank
    The question (tough or moronic - for you to decide ;) ): Given the 5-6g tank with non-photosynthetic corals (babies Scleronephthya, chilis, gorgonians: Diodogorgia, Siphonogorgia, Swiftia kofoidi, Anthogorgia, Guaiagorgia, and babies Tubastrea).

    I have an issue with micro-bubbles exiting my skimmer. I have tried both an NW150 and now a Tunze 9010. Same problem with tiny neutral boyant micro-bubbles. These bubbles are so small that they don't float. Needless to say the over-under-over baffles in my sump are no help. The sump is...

    I really like my new set up with a sump and skimmer. But there's a lot of movement in the sump, and the skimmer creates a lot of splash, as you can see by the water drops on the glass. The tank is on hardwood floor, and of course, I forgot to put plastic underneath the stand. :rolleyes: So...
  12. Substrate Free Tank Husbandry (Bare bottomed)
    I'm starting a new 90 bb and transfering all the stuff from my 150 to it. I have well over 200lbs of live rock and corals. If I want to do aquascape with no foam boards, can the tank bottom hold this kind of pressure? I will attempt to stack the bottom rocks as flat as possible to get some...
  13. Non Coral Dominated Systems
    So, I am upgrading to a bigger FOWLR tank, and I currently have a Niger Trigger, Black Hawaiian Trigger, and a Emperator Angel. I have always liked the Queen, is it bad to have the Queen with any of these fish? I figured that the angels might fight......but unsure.
