    my main comparison is the g3 vs the rs135 but would like to hear about all comparisons that anybody might have. I know they are designed similar but a few people have told me that the euroreefs outperform the asms to a good extent. I just wanna know if thats true.

    OK I know some of you thought it was sacrilege that I tore my 450-gallon system down. Numerous issues compiled and aided in the decision. First off was the system itself. I think anyone who builds their first dream system will tell you that a lot more thought went into building it than...

    Planning on upgrading my 30 gal tank to a 75 gal BB tank within the next month or so. Here is what I'm thinking, let me know what YOU think! It will be a mixed tank with heavy emphasis on sps. Tank Going with a traditional 75 gal AGA RR tank cause they are relatively cheap and easy to get...

    If you haven't done the mesh mod on your skimmer yet, please do. If you won't do it for yourself, do it for your corals and your fish, or even the starving chilren in Africa. ha ha, j/k. Anyways, I just did it and I can already note a positive. My gate valve is turned down to half of what it...

    I have a 2 month old Aqua Medic Biotherm controller hooked to a 1000 watt Biotherm titanium heating element. On two occasions, the controller has reset the set temperature to 0 degrees and once it reset the set temp to 111 degrees F. I caught it because I have an alarm on the tank on a...

    I took apart one of my MagDrives yesterday. It was not starting up reliably after being turned off, so I figured it probably had calcium carbonate buildup inside. I was correct, but I also found the impeller magnet chamber was filled with rust (not solid hunks of rust, but really fine...

    I am setting up a 120 gallon tank with a 50 gallon breeder tank for a sump. My g4plus uses a sedra 9000. My question is what's the best choice out there for recirculating pump. I use to use a little giant.

    Does anyone in town carry Ocean Runner (AquaMedic) pump parts that you guys know of? I was planning on getting my 75 "wet" this weekend (I know, finally) & was working on finishing my return plumbing when the fitting on top of the pump broke. Maybe it's my own fault, since I have a female PVC...
