    I am wondering if it's possible to have too much air moving across my MH fixtures as to prevent them from getting up to temperature and/or PAR value. I'm running ROIII's with Reeflux DE 10k's on IceCap 250 eballasts. Recently I've been noticing some STN on some of my SPS and one of my oldest...

    Ranco temp controllers can be purchased as prewired units, but are a little more expensive. I've recently purchased a new 2 stage controller that needed to be wired for power and both stages. The following pictures shows the wiring steps for this controller. Items: One grounded power cord -...

    I am using the treatment listed here: http://www.petsforum.com/personal/trevor-jones/hyposalinity.html For those that have done this, is 4 to 6 weeks long enough to allow the ich to die off in the main tank or should I go longer. I do not want a re-occurance and it took four long days to...

    My 125 system has been running for 6 months and I recently starting getting a slight shock when I reach into the tank. Initially, I thought it may be the lights, but that has been overruled. They are shielded by tempered glass and no salt crud exists here, plus they are elevated 6" above water...

    My girlfriend and I have had a tough time getting a stable water temperature in our 55 gallon. I have heard a lot of people suggesting that water should not change more than 2 degrees F in 24 hrs. Ours tends to be all over the place from 76 up to 82. Usually around 76 in the morning and then...

    I have three heaters on my prop system and one failed in the off position after only a year. (manual Won brothers). This seriously might be the biggest single danger to the average tank and also one of the cheapest to avoid. Do yourself a favior and have at least two heaters : ) on topic i...

    There are a number of reasons why, but the big 3 are less heat, less power, and the fact that my 50G doesn't need 500W of light. Right now with the MH I am forced to Evap 7 gallons per day to keep the temp down, this is done by a Ranco temp controller running fans, it is set at 80deg. After...

    Thought I would start a new thread to gauge interest in this area. I know a few of you have some pretty hi-tech setups and can automatically control most areas of your system and would love to hear about them. From the "no budget - just buy it" to the "gotta keep it cheap" crowd, what are...

    Well we finally found the 90 gal set-up we've been after. The problem is its in Valparaiso, Indiana. I know it's a long drive to get and we're probably crazy but its someone getting out of the hobby and we've negotiated a reasonable deal. Most importantly the wife loves the stand/canopy and...
