I am days away from setting up a sump for my 29 gallon reef tank. I need to select a proper skimmer. I want to select a large skimmer that I could use if & when I upgrade to a larger tank (like 75 gallon).
Would a Reef Octopus 110INT 4" be sufficient? If I got a slightly oversized...
This sump came with the tank when I got it and I know nothing about it. It measures 24x14x16 and has a fuge area built in. The reason Im asking is that I may need to baffle the skimmer/return area if the micro bubbles dont calm down. There are premade notches for baffles on that side, which I...
I've been putting together the pieces for a 120G reef tank with a 40G sump for the past 3 months. Rock has been cooking that long, Sump is built and tested with dual skimmers. Stand has been refinished and sump placed in lower section. Rear of 24x24x48 tank drilled for twin 1.5" overflows and a...
I finally set up the beckett skimmer I got from Jaim. It's still breaking in, but I'm confident that it's going to work well.
I'm loving all this freed up sump space!
This is what an in sump skimmer looks like when it hasn't been cleaned in a couple years...
And finally a crappy FTS...
I currently have a 125 gal tank with 3 emperor 400's running in my fish only tank. no reef tanks in hawaii. I have decided I want to move to better filtration and I was wondering what size wet/dry I should get. specifically dimensions or gallon size of the bi-ball container. I know the sump can...
So my new hang on back remora skimmer is here finally! I'm very excited to use it but have just been reading this drain warning that was sent with it and am a little hesitant to install it until I understand it a bit better. Drain Warning:
"This skimmer is equipped with a drain fitting...
I just recently purchased a new tank (new to me that is) and it came as a reef ready setup with sump and in sump skimmer. The tank is a 72 bow front. I beleive the sump is a 29. I've never really been into running a sump and it worries me to have all of my electrical stuff right next to my sump...
just started a new 75 gal reef tank and wondering my chooses on protein skimmers, was looking for a HOB skimmer and was asking for reviews or comments on the cpr bak paks or the dual pak. any info is greatly appreciated
Scenario: in sump skimmer, would you rather have it process large amounts of water for a short time or a small amount for a long time.
Would a recirc plummed to an overflow full bore do better/worse then cutting flow inhalf and why? I am sure it has to do with contact time but all rather...

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.

Why does the water in my sump lower everyday, its not letting my skimmer function properly (euroreef rs 100), is it because im using a brute container with one chamber, and the skimmer and return pump are both in the same container? Help is appreciated thanks.
