  4. The THINK Tank
    Some of the recent discussions have got me thinking that a rectangular box may not be the best design for a reef tank. Especially when you want to create more natural flow patterns and aquascaping. So, if money was not limiting, what sort of tank would you design and why? I've been thinking...

    I'm finally making headway on this little nano tank with an incorporated sump/refugium and reverse Carlson surge device. I'm just finalizing the final detail of "what should be the surge amount". My main viewing area of the tank will be about 14 gallons with a water volume (taking out the sand...

    With the recent discussion on surges and energies on the reeftank and their influence, I figured I'd share the principle and design of one of my favorite surge devices.
