I came home last night to my entire reservoir being cloudy with kalk and my Two Little Fishies Kalk Stirrer not being able to hold water in the chamber when the pump turns off. This in turn leads me to believe the check valve has failed. It's a shame being as all the equipment is less than two...

I have a 150 gallon (sort of) tank in the works and with the unofficial official reef build-off I thought I would make a build thread.
I have since dismantled my 225 gallon tank and have sold everything off. Everything was in a disarray and was not conducive to my lifestyle. I have my tank...
I am planning to start up a new system and do a complete build thread. But for now I'm just gonna throw this out there and see what you guys think.
External dimensions are 60x30x20 I'm just gonna make it easy and call it a 155g, the sump will probably be an ADHI Berlin 60.
I am planning on...
So the next element that i would like to add to my reef aquarium is an auto-top off system. I don't have room above the sump to place a container of top off water but i can place it next to my sump. I have been doing reading about float switches and using them with pumps but I'm not sure if I...
Since I was a small child, I have always had pets. Whether it was a dog, stray cat, baby squirl, injured bird, lizard, turtle. snake, aquarium, or just about any animal that I could keep. I have also had an aquarium set up constantly since I was 4 years old. Definately not going to share how...
