So I've come home to a bit of a mess today. In the past week it appears that the collection cup for my CSS has crazed all over and is no longer water tight. By crazing, I mean hundreds of hair-like cracks formed all over the plastic, most of them vertically oriented. I'm not sure what could...
I purchased this SS65 last year and it's been doing a terrific job for me, up till now. I detailed a bit about our move in another thread. I had the skimmer down for a couple of weeks after moving the tank, got it set back up a few days ago. I cannot get it to stop leaking at the seal between...

I'm on my 2nd go round after my tank of 2.5 years had a crazy phosphate problem (due to my less-than-diligent maintenance of the DSB). I wanted your advice on filtration for the new system. It's going to be another FOWLR w/ a 2-3" DSB (I guess that would be a SBD then?).
back when I have a marine tank the under gravel filter was " all you needed" I am getting ready to start a 75 gal tank, old style, not drilled , it will have live rock and a few live stock,
Do I need a sump? if so can I buy one ready to use, and what size should I buy
Getting Out of the Hobby Sale! - Added Photo
Regrettably, this is the second time within my life I have decided to get out of the hobby. We have young children and are looking to do more traveling for longer durations soon and tank maintenance has the best of me . This weekend I decided to make...
Does anyone have experience with the aqua c remora hob skimmer? I have got some good feedback about skimmers on here and done a lot of research online and everything keeps pointing to the aqua c remora. any thoughts?
thanks in advance
I dunno. The tank was over a year old in that issue, but of course they never say if things are still running or if they were taken down/IF they were taken down WHY it was(moving, got bored with something so small, roommate dumping stuff in...
Hello there. I have a 55 Gallon glass tank overflowing to a wet dry sump. In my sump I have a coralife super skimmer that outlets into my home made refugium. I have ran an overflow back from the refugium to the sump in case the return pump cannot keep up with the skimmer pump but really they...
I need a protein skimmer for my 20 gallon reef tank,
but what should i get?
I would like it to be affordable and quiet.
So far i've found:
Coralife Super Skimmer 65g,
Also, if you have any other ideas.
Also, i do not have a sump, but im...

I am a newbie....I have had my tank up and running for almost 3 months now. Things have been going well till now. I have a 70 gal, 30" tall tank, 75 lbs of live rock and an approx. 10 gal sump, coralife super skimmer, and 2 powerheads. I have attached pics to share.
i run a 75 gallon with a 15 gallon sump and a 5 gallon fuge..a coral 125 super skimmer, a 9 watt turbo twist UV, and a phosban reactor and a canister filter.
when i was re building my tank...i took every piece of rock out and cleaned this stuff off, so i could see the rock it self..now i have...
Okay, so i have a 20 gallon long tank that i am going to make into a reef sooner or later.
I also have a 10 gallon tank, would that be a suitable sump?
If so, how would i go about making it into a sump?
what would be better, a sump or a hang-on refugium with protein skimmer?
All of the pieces and parts have finally come together, and today my tank is born. April 25, 2008.
I started this project on February 1st, and I've learned a TON of stuff since then. I'm happy with what I have at the start, but I'm sure upgrades and changes will come in time. Here it is, in its...
over the past few years I've been befuddled by this persistent greenery.
every time I have been to my LFS the past 3 years they've said my water quality is perfect. zero phosphates, zero nitrates good calcium and alkalinity (I do the a/b calc alk system). its like im chasing a ghost here...
it actually has little spurts of bubbles..not as small as they should be though..like the size of a blowing a straw in a glass of water
i have a Coralife skimmer that i recently moved to my sump and it worked fine then i moved some things around and it does not make any bubbles...So i took it...
Ok so I figured out how ta take pics off my phone and send them to my email so I can post some pics of my tank finally!!No nice digital cam yet, low on the funds and sushi chefs cannot accept tips at my werk.(YEA I KNOW I KNOW!!)Anywayz res is so so but the pics are small but thats what I got...
I got the Coralife Super Skimmer 125 for my 55g tank and 20g sump. I have had water in the tank for 1 week, and I am already frustrated with it. In my book, the price I paid was not cheap. It was certainly less than some of the better ones, but this thing seems useless.
It is nearly...
