    I decided i want a bigger and better skimmer and have a few questions: 1. can a Skimmer be ran outside of the sump? 2. can you use a Mag18 pump to run a skimmer? 3. has anyone here built there own skimmer?

    Ok, I received my enkamat yesterday so I did the mesh mod on my brand new Octopus NW150. Upon testing it out in the bathtub the pump has trouble starting most of the time. I opened it up and made sure the pf4 is not hanging up on anything, and it also was not producing any bubbles whatsoever. It...

    I have a ER RS-135 and every time that I unplug it to clean it or empty it (everyday) it will not start back up on its own. I have to stick my hand in the sump and plug the water inlet so that it will start again. It is the pump that originally came with it (sedra) but it has done this since...

    I'm planning a new 135-gallon tank, and I'm trying to decide on lights. The tank is 72" long and 18" wide. I'm debating 175w or 250w MHs. I will be running T-5 acctinic supplementation as well. The tank in 24" deep and will have a sand bed. It will be a reef tank. The build thread is here...

    First thing is that I am surprised that I gotten in for i forget things and being that im trying to do so much, i forget certain items. Being that I not had that much assistance on the 40, I gone out to the other lfs and surprise, the system has gotten larger. I talk with the guy and I was...

    Okay...So I've read up, and I know most people would suggest NOT having a mangrove fuge, but I have my heart set on it...so I'm going to do it! Beneath my 30 gallon Indo-Pacific reef tank will be a 10 or 20 gallon fuge (on display), and below that (and behind it in a separate room off-display)...

    We have a 30-gallon Indo-Pacific reef tank that we are just getting started. The system is currently running with live rock, and I'm adjusting my params. Thinking down the road a bit, we're researching corals for this tank. We'd like to start from the bottom up, so our first question is about...

    OK I know some of you thought it was sacrilege that I tore my 450-gallon system down. Numerous issues compiled and aided in the decision. First off was the system itself. I think anyone who builds their first dream system will tell you that a lot more thought went into building it than...

    For a bunch of reasons (some beyond my control), I am buying "cured" live rock at the LFS today. It's been in their tank for a month under halides and looks great. I will be adding it to a new 30 gallon tank that has been running with just saltwater for a week. I think I'll go about 3/4 fiji and...

    Howdy all! I have a coralife super skimmer 65 that was run by some sort of rio pump.... it appears to have craped out on me.... what would YOU replace it with? IT is on a 29 gallon lagoonal tank so skimming IS important :D

    We are starting a new 30 gallon (tall) reef tank, and we were hoping to get some advice on stocking it. First the basics of our tank: Berlin classic sump, needle wheel skimmer (in sump), Current USA Outer Orbit w/moon lights (1x150w 10k HQI metal halide/2 65w dual actinic/4 moon while lunar...

    hey all, I have read a little about some MODs for different skimmers, but don't see a lot for the CSS 220. I like the mesh mod, and the one with fishing lne, but I am not really sure how to do either correctly. I really don't like the bubble production on my super skimmer 220. (needlewheel) the...
