  1. Reefing Equipment
    Hi, I am relatively new having a reef tank, had my aquareef 300 for around 6 months now and had a smaller 240 before that for a few months. I am having real problems setting up where my power heads are to achieve the best current. I currently do not have much coral at all, one goniopora spp and...
  2. General Reef Discussion
    I just upgraded to a 55 gallon long tank (I found cracks in my 30 gallon) I am trying to figure out how I should set up my water flow. This is a fish only tank btw. I have my canister filter set up with the intake on the far left of the tank and the out flow on the far right. I also have a HOB...

    Hello Everyone, I have been reading posts on here for a while but as of yet had been able to find the answers I needed. So here goes my first post. I have a Salt Water Fish Only tank (so this may not be quite the right place to post this) Anyway, my tank is a 30 gallon, and I have a...
  4. Anemones
    I added a purple long tentacle anenome a little over a week ago. It was settled in real well but the clown fish would not host it. After I fed the anenome the first time with a shrimp the clown fish found the anenome. The clown fish settled in while the shrimp was being given to the anenome...
  5. Water movement (pumps & wavemakers)
    Ok, here are some rough sketchings of the proposed tank layout. The tank is 48"x24"x12". I tried to get everything to scale as much as possible. This tank will have some SPS on two larger rocks, with lots of LPS and softies (probably all zoas) thrown into the mix, with the big rocks pretty much...

    My tank is coming out of a cycle that was hard on my torch coral and as a result I lost 2 heads. Today I notice a turban snail has fallen upside down and lodged itself behind the torch.:doh: I tried removing it by hand and only pushed the snail further out of grasp, the only way to move it is by...

    Hi everybody, So, my tank is going extremely well. The two clowns are happy, the rock is a nice purple/ red, and levels are great. My question today is about corals because I want to know about the actual placement of them, specifically with my powerhead. It's a koralia, and I know it's supposed...
  8. Water movement (pumps & wavemakers)
    I know the consensus is that more flow is better. I am trying to gauge if I have a fairly decent amount of water movement currently. I have a 65 gallon tank (36"x24"X18"). It is drilled with a sump that is using a mag7(700gph) on the return. Given the height distance I am probably getting...
  9. Water movement (pumps & wavemakers)
    im currently in the proccess of setting up a 72 gallon bow front aquarium. it does have the megaflow overflow which is rated at 600gph if i remember correctly. it is going to be a reef tank and wanted a second opinion on the return pump and powerheads i was planning on installing. for the...

    so how does an anemone move? im taking notes and still deciding if i should get one so any points on health, inspection, behavior, and i have two perc clowns if that info is relevant, let me also tell you what i know. they need supplements ie mysis shrimp (meaty foods) as well as extreme...
  11. General Reef Discussion
    so here i sit to ponder once again the flow issue, I have no idea how much is too much or too little flow. I have a 55G which measures 48x18x12.5 i use one Koralia 4 which has an output of 1350 or 1250 GPH on one end of the tank which is also the side of the return pump input. the other side...
  12. Anemones
    In reading some prior posts here I am considering keeping the wave makers that killed my anenome. If I put black pantyhose over the wavemaker, would that interfere with the functioning? I was going to do two smaller power heads, but I don't think I would get enought water movement. I need an...
