    Been looking at powerheads... Internet says I need like 3000 gph for a 55 softy and Lps, I'm not set on any particular fish, so I can plan them around the equipment. Is that on top of my 350 gph overflow? Jebaos recommended all around, maybe a WP on each end, and 2 smaller cheaps? or maybe...

    OK ... I bet I'm not the only electrical engineer here .... so here is a question: Isnt an electronic wave maker just a triac output power controller set to reduce the voltage and on time of the sine wave so that the power head slows down? And of so, why do we spend hundred of bucks for one...

    My 2 new clowns are adjusting to my tank. However, I have turned off my wave makers, they simply can't swim with them on. They get blown all over the tank and fight against it. Do I have too much water movement? I am running 2 1200 Maxijets with a wavemaker and large propellor in a 90 gallon...

    Here's a few pics of my new tank and fish room. 220 Display tank w/ 55 gal sump. I've never realized how small a 55 gal tank can really look. Here's the beginnings of the wall that the fish tank is built into. And here's the tank on the stand. I sure am glad that I have a 6" ledge...
