    So I have been looking at modding my Fluval Evo 13.5 for better filtering. Right now, I am thinking about building a DIY media basket for the first chamber (where the protein skimmer normally goes) and using Chemipure Elite, Seachem Phosgard and Seachem DeNitrate in the basket. In the second...

    I recently upgraded to a 55g after finding cracks in the 30 I was using. The tank was a marineland kit and came with a pair of LED lights with a switch on top to go from day mode (white leds + blue leds) to night mode (just blue) or off. My problem is, that this is the worst design ever. I am...

    Hey Folks, I have a 20H aquarium that came topless, so I ordered a Perfecto glass canopy and ignored the "actual size" listed on the website. Yes, I'm a moron, I know. So now I have a nice piece of glass that is about a half inch too small. The aquarium is also rimless, so theres not even a...

    So I just bought a coralife 65 superskimmer for my 40 breeder. It works fine but I really dont like the giant water pump taking up space, not to mention how much of an eye sore it is. Is there any way i could take the pump out of the water and just plumb an intake tube to the pump? or should I...

    I have a coralife power center, the kind with the digital timer, two day outlets that alternate with two night outlets, and four always-on outlets. But what I really need is a third day outlet. I only use one of the night outlets and one of the always on outlets, so there's plenty of room. I'm...

    Hey! So I have two 5 gallon Chi's sitting opposite each other on display. One is a pretty cool looking freshwater setup with lots of green. It's got Java ferns and Amazon swords doing amazing well with the Swords peaking out of the water next to the fountain. In addition to the greenery its...

    Anyone have any? I have the Nano, and I was impressed with it, but I noticed that it might be possible to improve the efficiency. So here's what I did, and now I can CLEARLY see the front input chamber water level, rise and lower, depending upon how high the grate is out of water. (receiving...

    I've been searching the forums for either a mesh or other type of mod for a MAG5 standard impeller. It's not a pinwheel type. Most of the older posts no longer have pics of the process and just wondering if anyone has links to a thread or resource with a how-to that includes good steps and...

    I recently bought a biocube 29 modded. instead of 2 PC lights and 3 leds, one pc and all three leds were swapped for one halide. The two stock fans have already been upgraded, except I want to add two smaller fans to blow across the halides inside the hood. the two fans are already there, except...

    My 29 gallon biocube moon lights are taking a poop. I've seen pics of moon lights that are on, and mine have never looked as bright as them. not even when I first got it. Now should i replce the bulbs, or get a small LED fixture and mod it between the two Power Compact bulbs? The current USA...

    We have just received our first shipment of the Warner Marine Red Demon Pinwheel Impellers for the Sicce pumps. This pinwheel is a big upgrade in both air draw and water flow over stock Sicce pinwheels. The Red Demon is an excellent option if you're looking for more performance over the other...

    SOmeone gave me a MJ 400. A mod to make it for flow is 14 bucks. I am already ordering some other stuff so shipping is no big deal. Is it even going to be worth it or two underpowered to matter? It is a 30 long that is mostly LPS and softies. It will have a K2 and K3 and the return will be...
