    Worth repairing NAC 9 for sale?

    The impeller broke and fused to the inside of the pump. I took it to my local shop and they couldn't get the thing to work or come apart.

    Worth repairing NAC 9 for sale?

    That very upgraded pump kit is the one I was talking about using to repair the skimmer for sale. I just don't know if it is worth spending the money or if I should sell the skimmer as is hoping someone will want to order the parts to get it working.

    Found caulerpa in sump

    I picked chaeto at the store and I found a few broken bits of green grape caulerpa in it. Looking closer I noticed that a very small part that has turned very pale almost white. Does this mean it has gone sexual and if so what should I do? should I just drain my sump?

    rock work

    I would make plenty of caves and small nooks for fish and shrimp to move through. I would also try to make sure you don't create any dead spots with no water movement so try to take in to consideration where your power heads will be. As for inspiration try this...
