    Kalk mixers ?

    I had the Avast for a while. The motor was a little too loud for me. I reached out for a replacement thinking one was defective, but the new one was just as loud. Kind of a constant hum/gear grinding noise. When I upgraded my tank, I switched to the IceCap unit. I love it! I’ve got it...

    The Return of Hans - A 150 Gallon SCA Mixed Reef Build

    Man, that's a bummer! I've got the DD Jumpguard on my SCA150. It's a DIY type screen cover that's fairly easy to assemble. It sits nicely hidden within the euro brace. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    I'm running a Jebao DCT-8000 on my 24" skimmer at about 70% power. It's super quiet and has been running without issue for over two years now. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Show me your steel stand cabinets!

    Thanks! I like the look of that. Clean and simple. I'll most likely go with a wood look since that'll match the room decor, but I like the thought of just simple stained panels. Any thought of making the panels hinged? I might do that... find some nice hinges to screw into the steel...

    Thinking this through... do you think the head pressure pushing up and over a baffle could affect skimmer performance? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Show me your steel stand cabinets!

    I've got an SCA 150 gallon aquarium on the way and having a friend build a steel stand for me. I plan on making wood cabinet fronts, fully removable, attached with magnets. I need inspiration for the build! Let's see what you've got!

    The Return of Hans - A 150 Gallon SCA Mixed Reef Build

    Great job, Hans! I've got the same SCA 150 on the way- should be shipping my way soon. Steel stand is being welded up this week as well. My guy will be powder coating mine, but I like the look of yours! How did you support your plumbing? Drill into the steel stand, plywood, or what? I...

    Bashsea Sump Advice

    I'm in the process of building my new 150 reef tank and got a smoking deal on a Bashsea ELOS Smart Series sump. It's big! 36"x24"x16" All I have is a Life Reef skimmer and a BRS carbon reactor. I'm not really looking to do a refugium... maybe some Marine Pure blocks so I don't have to fill the...

    Will the Marine Depot Elite Overflow Large fit in a Synergy 16 hole?

    Did you get it to work? How about with the eurobrace? Is there room to work back there? I just ordered an SCA 150 and am going through the same thought processes....

    SC Aquariums Owners Thread

    I just ordered one today! It's going to replace my 75 gallon. 150 drilled for the Shadow overflow. Steve was very good at answering all my questions right away. Very pleased so far with the customer service. Should be shipping last week of October! Super excited!

    Has anyone run both a GFO reactor and the LifeReef SVS2-24 off one pump? Can it be done?

    Jecod DCT-6000 running at max on my -24 (75 gal reef) for a couple years now without a hitch. I run it 22 hours a day (shuts off every morning at 6am for coffee time!). Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Went Diving Today!

    I wish I could build a bigger tank so I could get more of your rock!! I had a tank crash in November and lost all my urchins that arrived on your rock. :(
