    Bubble King BK-160 or BK-180 for 93g tank?

    I had a mini 200 on my 120g did a great job but I don't know about it being able to handle up to a 260g tank I think it was perfect for my 120g. but alas its currently idle since it seems to need a new impeller on the red dragon pump. anyone interested can make an offer on it. I don't have that...

    Electrician here...If you need advice or help

    Yeah, then I would run with it, the gfci breakers have to be installed a very specific way but it sounds like they are properly wired. Each breaker requires its own neutral and the neutral lands into the spot on the breaker then the pre-wired neutral from the breaker goes to the neutral bar in...

    Yup, if you read back on stray voltage on my thread there is a demonstration which everyone should be doing from time to time, pump get old, break, and fray. The GFCI should have caught that though, You may want to check that GFCI with a GFCI tester.

    ok, first off there is no difference between the breaker or plug GFCI, but there is a pretty decent difference in price. I would say go with the plug unless it will be hard for you to reset behind the tank. Second part, Yes they can share a neutral like say for instance you are using 12/3...

    Yes it will, the dj strip will have a fuse built-in to protect overcurrent, the surge protectors true intention is only to prevent against lightning or to much incoming voltage from your utility provider (edison here) the gfci's ONLY purpose is to protect you from being electrocuted. They all...

    Sounds like he did a good job, and yeah should be just fine. 2 20a circuits dedicated to a tank is a little overkill but when I am running it for someone I always reccomend it since all its costs is more material. Its a better safe than sorry because its twice the price to come back and do it again.

    Do 20 amp circuit, dont waste your time with 15a, which will be 12 guage wire. I run 2 20a circuit dedicated to each of my tanks but they are larger have big heaters and chillers...1 is usually fine but it should cost much more than material to put a second circuit there so I always just...
