    I finally got my 180gal with dual corner overflows up and running, but to keep my water level in my tank where it is not to high I can only go around 700gph, my drains have no problem keeping up with a faster flow but my overflow box cant handle the increased flow and the water level rises in...

    Looking for some advice. I bought a Marineland 75g reef ready tank earlier this year. I thought it should be able to handle a 700gph pump. I've tried an Eheim 1260, and just now a Sicce 2.0 (568gph) and both of them run the return section dry. I've got the valve wide open on the overflow...

    Merry Christmas everyone! I recently purchased a 90 gallon aquarium that has been drilled 3x in the bottom glass. From my research I see this is a very odd setup, essentially what I WANT to do, is setup a Herbie drain (unless there is a better option) unfortunately due to this odd drill setup...
  5. 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...

    Can anyone tell me what the cylinder in the overflow box is for? I believe it drains the water to my sump, but it is being very noisy at the moment. It appears to have an air valve at the top, but I'm not sure about that. I'm hesitant to mess with it. Anyway to quiet it down?

    I've got a single return pump and I'm adding a second one. I have 2 seperate returns to the display tank and I'm wondering, should I direct plumb each return line to its own pump, or should I make a manifold?

    Does anyone use the Durso standpipe?? I have 1 inch bulkheads and recommends using 1 1/4 inch pvc. Is this necessary? Any input or tips would be greatly appreciated.
