    Hi everyone, I have a 40b reef tank and would like to consider a skimmer. Currently I have no sump and have no plans to install one, but of course that could change. I already have decent RODI, etc and have OK water, but going from "OK" to "very good" is more time-consuming than I can handle...

    Well dropped some rock in today so I guess I can add my build on here. -Got a 75 gallon glass aquarium I picked up second hand with the triton 34v2 by trigger for a sump. -Drilled the tank and went with the modular marine overflow since I liked the low profile inside the tank. I will note...

    I have a CRP BAK (single) protein skimmer that I just added to my 60 gallon tank. I made a muffler of sorts for the air line that eliminated the noise it was making but the main unit is making a loud humming sound. It sounds fairly loud and is much louder than my HOB dual-chamber filter. I...

    Hello, Thanks for the add. I have 2 tanks-one 20 gallon freshwater and one 45 gallon saltwater jbj 45. I tried to add photos, but apparently I'm gonna have to join a samsung forum to learn how to operate my phone to meet the size requirements. :) The reason I joined this forum is to gain...

    Any suggestions on a very cheap and small skimmer? I have a 20 long with 5 gallon sump. Sump area is tiny, so there is not much room for a large skimmer. It would have to be a nano, or HOB, but I would want the HOB to be very hidden if possible. Would a skimmer this small on a tank this size...

    Hi All: Im using a hang on CPR BakPak2. Its been in use for over 10 years. Its collected so much gunk over the time that I finally decided to remove it and clean it. There was some coralline growth and tube worms living in the bottom that I couldnt get to scrub out. Its been drying out for...

    Thought I'd share a little goof on my part. Was looking real close to see if I had any pod production in the new sump. I have an algae scrubber over a fuge with live rock that I was hoping would be a great breeding ground, but I didn't really see any. Then my eye caught one little critter...

    Hey Reefers, I have bubble magus skimmer nac 6 for my 90 gal. it's in a 40 gal sump for over a year. I had a freshly cleaner filter sock and when I placed it into to water immediately my skimmer exploded to the top!:eek: I quickly tuned it down, but since that time my skimmer has only been...
