    Several folks have inquired about the spray bar I'm using so I decided to start a thread specific to it. I don't consider it a CLS but I'm just that way. The entire tank is a CLS if it's not hooked up to NSW feed. None of it is cemented in place and if you can go over the back with a return...

    I am planning out a DIY spray bar type closed loop system to add some bottom flow through my rock work. The plan is to run an intake pipe on each end of the tank a couple inches under the surface. Joined by a Y connector behind the tank. I then plan to run the return the same way, Y split in the...

    I am setting up my first bare bottom tank. I have two holes drilled in the rear corners for closed loop returns. I am going to be running the closed loop off of either an iwaki 70-rlt or a dolphin ampmaster 3000. Undecided at this point which pump to use. My sump return is going to be two 1"...

    I've heard a few ppl talking about a spray bar, what is it? I have been thinking about putting a air bar behind all my rocI would proly turn it on before a water change to help remove anything that builds up back there. Is a spray bar pretty much the same thing?

    tank dimensions 60 x 18 x 20 tall I didn't know it before, but they offer a check valve for loc line in 1/4", 1/2" and above 2", no 3/4" :( I'm putting together my spray bar, and thought I'd ask a quick Q. I have all the fittings and pvc to make it either 1/2" or 3/4" either way. 1/2" is more...

    I'm Trying to figure out a good layout for circulation on my new 75gal. reef. I have one Vortech 40es on order, and one Koralia 750 if needed. I'm going to build a rocklift, and liked the idea of the spraybar underneath to keep the detritus from settling. Could the return pump line from my Mag...

  13. The THINK Tank
    What to do with this rock? (AKA the stinky rock thread) Here's the situation: We have a friend tearing a tank down. As we were talking, I casually mentioned that I'd be interested in some LR. She replied that she couldn't take money for it, as it's overrun with aiptasia, and there's also...
  14. Soft Corals and Gorgonians
    Okay, I got this coral for six dollars. It is not the following: - Green/White Star polyps because it does not grow on a flat encrusting mat. - Pipe organ coral because the outer tube tissue is soft. I have searched and searched. Anyone have any ideas?
