    Mine died which was attached to my AquaC Remora skimmer. Impeller was locked for probably 2-3 days. It was almost 2 yrs old. Tank is fine :) Anyhow I've learned many of these pumps failing and crashing tanks due to faulty seals. My dilema is the skimmer section in my sump allows a 2.5" wide...

    I have read many threads on "Is this a good buy?" and I just answered one of them this way.....I understand how we should be supporting our sponsors and I do!

    I am sorry to be posting all these dumb questions, but my mind is on overload! I am trying to learn as much as I can about this new and fabulous hobby. To all who don't know, I am starting with a used freshwater system (cleaned and re-vamped) bought from a co-worker. I had a few accumulated...

    Guys, this is my fisrt post and I need to know if anyone ever ran the turboflotor 1000 externally outside the sump? The skimmer could not fit in my sump so I ended up figuring out a way to plump it and need to know if this is safe to do?

    Just curious. If you've ever had a crash, for any reason, tell about it. Tell us what could have been done to prevent it if possible. I'll start.

    I have lost a royal gramma, lawnmower bleeni and my clown. And when i say lost i mean lost. I can not find them. I looked in all the cracks in my rock and they are no where to be found.

    Alright, so tax returns are right around the corner! This year its going to be a 120g 48x24x24 double cube lol, afterall that is why I claim Single 0 all year long lol. I love the depth of my current 24x24x24 cube, but I dislike how its not long enough. I think the 120 will solve that, while...

    Well it appears that my version of the Geoff skimmer will look EXACTLY like this: 4" diameter pipe, 6' tall, Rio 1700 input, 3/4" output. Return tube 1" off the bottom. Supply tube slightly bent to put a spin on the ingoing water.
