    Why are tanks so expensive? Should I go with an L Shaped

    Only tip I can provide is to pay to have one made. Or make sure you have flood insurance. There's a reason good tanks are expensive. Look at glass cages for discount. Also look at the amount of leaks customers have reported. Now look at miracles. And the quality issues they...

    Feed Mode Seting?

    I dont have this light but I do change the color of my radions with my Alex and wxm a few min before I auto feed. So my fish start swimming faster and way more active during that time. Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk

    Dorm Fridge Chiller Questions... Well easiest thing since they are just bait fish is just get a fridge big enough to place a bucket inside. Turn the temp up to 54 and add a bubbler. If you wanted fancy you could put a light in there Or go full aquarium in there if you can fit...

    Bubbles in display

    How much flow are you running through the sump. Too much can pull bubbles. Also check your plumbing could be drawing in air at a fitting Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk

    Pump Gurus needed

    You only have a little bit of head pressure in that system. Having 2 downhill runs will cancel out the 2 uphill runs. Problem you're having is getting it started This will not however remove the friction loss from the plumbing itself or the fittings. Once you got all the air purged out...

    Timer recommendations

    Without using a wifi controlled power strip or the like you'll likely need a controller to allow for each outlet to be controlled separately Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk

    Vortech alternative (wet/dry side)

    Nothing else like it in the market. You could get the coralvue wave engine with eco tech module and get more control than apex Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Does anyone know an aquarium safe paint (not sprayable)

    Why not just order a peice of black acrylic and cut it to the same profile of the back wall. Then just silicone it in place. Or let it rest but have the sand and rocks hold it in location Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk

    ecotech marine vortech mp40

    With most stuff it's all about duty cycle. If you buy stuff and plan to use it at or near its max capacity then you won't get much longevity out of it. But you also don't need to over buy. I had 2 mp10s on a 45 cube and later went to a 90 cube and added 2 more mp10s. Never ran...

    Hi! New here not new to hobby. Need advice on a potential issue

    One thing to note is that used to be a dry tank. You can see the stick on heating pad for reptiles. I would be concerned with ammonia that has absorbed into the silicone and that its water tight at all from whatever they had in there scratching or clawing at. I don't remember...

    Moving multiple anemones

    Just point a focused power head at the base. Like a maxi jet and wait. Ice cubes can work if you want a quicker means of removal Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk
