    im getting new filter replacements soon for my 90 GPD refurb system. ive always in the past just replaced the old filters with what came with original purchase, but after looking at the website i see now theres a new upgraded RO membrane for 90gpd that has 99% rejection instead of the 96% that...

    I don't seem to be able to stop algae blooms. Part of the reason is I might be over feeding so I've cut down on that, but the blooms keep coming. My sand is brown (I vacuum it) and the glass is green...you all know the look...I do water changes at about 5-10% every five (or six) days. My...
  3. Skimmers & other filtration
    Hello, I'm looking to see if anyone has had luck with using an aftermarket or different type of skimmer pump than the original one. I have a 220 Coralife Super Skimmer which is showing it's age. I think the design is OK, but I've been having problems with the pump aging. Has anyone used an...

    My pump that came with my SCA-302 skimmer went bad, so instead of buying the same exact one, I was wondering if anyone know of an alternate one, looking for a better quality one. Here is the SCA-302 default pump to get an idea. Thanks in advance...
  5. Water movement (pumps & wavemakers)
    Currently I am very dissatisfied with my current water movement, I have two Jebao WP-10 and a 500 GPH Aquaeon Power Head and a AC 70 (about 300 GPH). My tank is a 40B. I just can't get my movement to "flow" the way it would in my LFS. The water movement in the tank is about 2800 GPH and my two...

    So I have an Odyssea 24" quad T5HO fixture, because I'm a student on a budget. The T5HOs are solid and light up my tank reasonably well. The lunar LEDs are awful. I've already had to replace the power supply, and all four LEDs blew out in less than 4 months (of 6 hours a day use, 3 in the...

    Hey guys. I have the refurbished Spectrapure 5-stage RO/DI system and was wondering exactly when I should think about replacing its filters. I only have a 30 gallon tank and doing ~25% water changes weekly, so I wouldn't say that I was overly using the RO/DI system. Do I replace the filters...

    Does the color changing di cartridge totally change color before its time to replace? Mine is 2/3 black and 1/3 brown. Also do you replace the first 2 cartridges? The first is a sediment filter, I believe and it looks super dirty. The second is a chloramine reduction carbon filter, I believe and...
  9. Reef Fish
    I just found one of my clown fish in the center back section of my 29 gallon Bio Cube, dead. He was one of a pair that have been in my aquarium together for over 2-years. I am really sad and want to replace him. Is there anything I should know about placing a new clown fish with the older...

    So I've had my RO/DI unit for 9 months now. We've got very high TDS in our tapwater here, about 600. Recently I've noticed that my RO/DI is coming out at 28 TDS. It's always been 0 before. Crazy thing is if I bypass my DI resin and test the water from the membrane it is coming out 9 TDS. So...
