  1. Nano Reefs
    So, I am operating on a small budget. I am a DIY'er, and have a 20tall that I drilled myself (looks pretty good), I've got my bulkhead and PVC all in place. I am using a 10gal for a sump. I was wondering what is the best protein skimmer for the money? I see everyone has their own preferences...
  2. Water movement (pumps & wavemakers)
    I just started my tank yesterday. It is a submersible pump. The "air intake" is dripping water - out. No air is going in. The pump is working fine otherwise, circulating water. How do I fix this? My pump came with my aquarium and there is no manual for it. I appreciate the help. I've...

    Oh the frustration! I have a 75 gallon whose stand is poorly designed- there is a center board dividing the bottom compartment in half, so instead of having one large open space I have two smaller spaces :mad:. Knowing one 10 gallon sump was not enough (that is the largest size tank that will...

    What would be a good high quality, low power low heat transfer submersible pump? Most importantly, QUIET and vibration free! I've used Little Giant, and Blue Line external power hungry noisy pumps. I'm a big Little Giant fan for long term use, and reliability. My 2 Blue Line pumps (BL 40 HDX)...

    I have a short and hopefully simple question for you guys. Should the foam filter be left on the submersible pump for my venturi skimmer, or should it be removed to allow more of the "junk" to make it into the skimmer? Thanks. :beer:
  9. Zoas And More Zoas

    I love zoas. They are the easiest most funnest coral to collect in this hobby.
  10. My 58 Gallon Ocean

    Hey everyone, I'm helping fix this 8' beast of a tank for a local hospital's radiation clinic. The tank is only a year old, but they have been feeding frozen food 2x/day, and now they have all kinds off algae issues. Im not sure if its cyano or diatoms, but its is brown and string with bubbles...

    Every LFS owner I visited said it couldnt be done. But I went ahead and did it, and I was successful! Some background history. My tank has a overflow compartment, but for some strange reason it didnt have holes drilled in it. No problem, I said then, since it was for FW fishes. So I just...

    I have been lurking for a while now, while I finish the physical build of my 55 Gal tank. It is 48"x13"x18", glass, has a center support from front to back. I got it from a friend who used it as a fresh water tank. First I was planning on sterilizing it with a low ratio bleach solution. I...

    You know - I am still debating on the 28G Nanocube or a bigger tank. I know I wil lget bored of the Nanocube eventually since it can only house maybe 2-3 small fish and a few corals. I confirmed the electrical issue will cost allot to do and its probably out of the question. With a TV, DVD...

    After admiring reef tanks from afar for many years I am finally at a point in my life where I can take up the hobby. It will still be a few months before I can begin but until then I can do more research and perfect my system design. Below are some 3D models of my first design. Tell me what...

    Hello I have been out of the hobby for over 5 years now and I'm looking to get back into it. I had a coupe of 90 gal tanks (one reef and one fish only) in the past. I'm now looking at a 150 to 215 sized tanks. I live in a dry climate and water will evaperate at a high rate which is my first...
