    Ok, I feel like I have a good handle on the basics of reef keeping 101. I measure this by the fact my current 180 sps tank is doing well. The sps are actually growing with what I consider decent speed and coloration. I have the origional two sps colonies that started my tank over 18 months ago...

    Is live rock in the sump just as good as the display? Or does it work better being in the main display? Trying to figure how to get better flow threw out the tank.

    Hello CLS experts. Well, im getting ready to start on a simple CLS for my tank and I have a few basic questions. (tank is 120gallon 48x24x24) My goal with this cls is to try and keep detritus clear from under the rock and keep it suspended long enoph for there to be a reasonable chance that...

    My spray bar keeps plugging up, i believe the holes are too small. I think i'm going to try to cut some slits in the pipe. Do i just have the cut area on the bottom front or should i put it on the back too? Also, i capped the ends, and was told that i should either put a strainer on them or...

    I am having a terrible time with cyano. I have 2 rio 3100 as my return pumps and I have 3 maxijet 1200's in the tank. What do you think, enough flow or should I add more powerheads. I have a 180 tank.

    I'm using a hammerhead. I'll be using an OM 4 ( or 8 ). Should I drill a hole for a 1" diameter pipe for the spraybars I plan to use? or should I go larger?

    I've finally made up my mind to go BB on the 75g that I'm setting up. I was originally going to upgrade my 20g to a 40g but didn’t like the way that tank design ended up. I really want to go with an SPS dominated tank so I assume this is the way to go. I've ordered my HDPE online and got my 3"...

    At the recommendation of someone and after some reasearch, I want to get the Sequence hammerhead pump :D:D Should I get the 4500 gph or the 5800 gph? I've never owned one like this so I'm not sure if those extra horses are going to blow my application out of the water ( no pun intended ). I'm...

    I've had lots of issues with my SPS acros lately. I lost an entire colony that was once growing a lot. I'm also losing a stag now and some other smaller SPS frags. It seems to have all started when I changed my my 400w Hamilton 14k's out that were over a year old to new XM10k's. Some corals...
