    I have a pump that according to the head loss calculator will be putting out about 950 - 1000 gph. So my question is, do I buy a overflow rated for 900gph and throttle the pump back (if I indeed get that much flow) or get one rated at 1000gph?

    Anybody have a brand/model of pressure rated pump that is a good pump? I need one in the 3000 gallon range and it has to be a pressure rated pump for a Beckett Skimmer.

    While at the TRT picnic, I had an opportunity to see one of Geoff's DIY skimmers. He thinks it was the second one he built but wasn't sure. I told him that I already had all the pieces cut out to make me one but I had questions about it. Water direction, inside the chamber plumbing, etc. I also...

    I am using the aqua c ev180 skimmer and I cant seem to get it to produce enough skim. I have been using this for months and recently changed my sump and am now using a Quiet one 4000 on it. Previously I was using a Mag 12 and it produced some skimmate, (like a half cup per week) but never...

    Ok, question of the day. DBF (dear boy friend) wants to create a waste water re-circulating system for the RODI unti, and wants to buy an external pressure rated pump. Since it had been recommended for me to get the same type of pump for my TopFathom 200 venturi skimmer, I wanted to get some...

    Ok, here it is. My first ever attempt at a reef tank. In fact, this is my first venture into saltwater at all. Tank and most equipment was a great find from a freshwater enthusiast. I had the skimmer in my garage, and bought the 2 maxi-jets with upgrade kits. Specs: 90 Gallon All Glass Aquarium...

    Ok, I feel like I have a good handle on the basics of reef keeping 101. I measure this by the fact my current 180 sps tank is doing well. The sps are actually growing with what I consider decent speed and coloration. I have the origional two sps colonies that started my tank over 18 months ago...

    I've been out of the hobby for a while (inconsistent with raisin young-ens and all) but now my 7 yr old is showing an interest. I've been reviewing this site for equipment ideas, and I see no one mentions the ETS skimmers anymore. Have they been junkpiled in favor of the octopus and deltec styles?

    I figured it would be appreciated if I stopped starting a million threads to ask questions and just made a build thread. I am starting with a 48 gallon tank that was obviously designed by a committee of mentally challenged people, and purchased by another one. The tank measures 18x20 by...
