  1. Do It Yourself
    I'm setting up a reef tank for a buddy, that happens to be very particular on where and what he wants. So, he wants the tank to be in his wall, viewed from both sides and a center overflow. My thought is to have the tank drilled for one-1.5" drain and run the return around the side in the wall...

    Heard my a powerhead making noise last night and awoke to find anemone tentacles in it and no sign of the rest of him. He was about 8" round. I'm hoping he's just injured and hiding behind a rock. Hopeful thinking? Maybe it matters where he was caught? I'm also worried the crabs and shrimp are...

    So, I picked up this plate coral today and was wondering if this is too much flow? I've never had one before and seems like whenever I do see them they aren't moving so much. It seems happy overall, especially for only having been in the tank for about an hour. Just don't want to kill it before...

    I am in the process of setting up my 180 gal aquarium to be primarily a SPS reef tank whereas in the past I have had a few SPS but mostly LPS and softies. There appear to many supplemental and filtration systems advertised including the Zeovit system. The Zeovit system seems to get rave...
  7. New to the Hobby
    I have only recently come back to saltwater. When I took a look on the Selling/Trading forums, I notice a few "getting out" posts of people who are walking away from salt. This makes me wonder just how common it is for people to "do saltwater" for years, then life becomes too busy and they have...

    I thought part of the point of the baffles in a sump was flow? Going over and under the baffles, getting agitated, etc. My baffles seem like they let the water go in, over, and then through. Looking at my sump after the inlet, you don't see any water movement. I know water is flowing...

Some of us got the MP40's and some of us got the MP10's. I received the MP10 on Friday, and these are my initial impressions. 1) It is extremely...
