    While it's no secret that we all love our reef tanks, it's also no secret that a reef junkie is never satisfied. We're always looking for the next piece of equipment, the next challenge or another place in the house where we can stick a tank. It should come as no surprise then that we're seeing...
  3. Water movement (pumps & wavemakers)
    I posted this in an other section with only two responses with opposite opinions so I figured this maybe a better place to ask. I have a 3 gallon Picotope that has been running for a few weeks now. Its doing really well and I just added a Hydor Koralia 240 to the tank to increase the flow. I've...

    Do you think this 240 gph hydor koralia cirulation and wave pump is ok for my 3g Picotope? It was the smallest I could fine. It really need a jet do to the super low flow of the filter.

My nitrates have been steadily climbing week after week up to about 80ppm. I was wondering if I took out the media and other innards, and...

    I have been out of the hobby for 20 years. I was thinking about a Picotope 3 GA then a Nano Cube 28 quad. I would then use the Picotube for quarantine or coral growth. Is that a good plan? Are their other set ups to consider for similar cost? I could go to a 6 GA. With the stock light and...
