    I am replacing the stock pump in my coral life 29 biocube, and I am looking between the Eheim Compact+ and the Taam Rio+ 1000. Which do you think would be better for me? Eheim:http://www.marinedepot.com/Eheim_Compact%2B_Pump_Aquarium_Powerheads_Compact_Pumps-Eheim-EH11036-FIPHCP-vi.html Rio...

    Hi all, I'm basically looking at upgrading my current 65l aquastart 500 reef tank to a bigger one. Been looking at the Juwel Rio 125. The guy at the lfs said it was optional about a skimmer so I felt it would be a pretty straightforward switch over from my existing tank. However, is there...

    today my Rio nano came in the mail first i'll tell you why i bought it then my experience with it, i chose this skimmer because of the price (20$ Amazon), and the reviews said "when" it works its a great skimmer, to me this means its got some design flaws and needs to be tweeked, no problem...

    Hi everyone! I have a 10g tank, and I just bought a rio nano skimmer. It's the type that hangs off of the back of the aquarium. When I first bought it, I set it up, didn't make any adjustments and it seemed to be working fine (It was bubbling a lot up through the tube and it looked functional.)...

    Gonna try this hear too... So I have a Hyperflow6 that I have running my UV sterilizer. It works rather well for what it is meant for but if it is turned off, on start up it will just churn and not lift water. I have to remove it from the water to kinda kickstart it lifting water. Sometimes...

    The return pump I currently have is way to weak. I'm planning to upgrade to a stronger pump. I'm gonna be using 1/2 inch vinyl tube. My tank is a 40 gallon breeder. The height from my pump to the output is about 4 ft. Rio 2500 @ 4 ft = 529 gph Rio 3100 @ 4 ft = 690 gph - I currently...

    We have a 90 gallon all-glass tank with the mega overflow (the one in the middle not in the corner). Per the a few websites it is suggested the over flow is 650 GPH. It also suggests that you are to use a 2,400 GPH pump with 5 foot head. I believe the return hole is 1 1/2" and the inlet is 1...

    I am wondering if you can provide the diminsions for this little skimmer...also, will it fit into one of the sump chambers of a JBJ 12 gallon nano-cube. Lastly, from a nooby to someone I know is much more experienced than I am, if you had a nano like mine, would you buy this skimmer or ask...

    Ok, now that I have your attention, everything is OK so far. I just was wondering what would happen if the thing did crap out on me while in one of my rock cooking vats. It is an old 1700 from back when they were problematic. Would this ruin the rock if it failed? Right now I am balancing...
