    Reefing USA Frag Swap

    Seems kinda counter intuitive? Usually - I mean im not for certain, but usually when ppl sell corals at swaps they go right to buying more coral from vendors. I mean thats just me. Sell some frags, buy some newer pieces. Somewhat of a dumb move imo and will hurt their profit far more than...

    Acrylic Sump for sale - Brand New

    So I still have the brand new sump still wrapped in cellophane from the day I won it from the LEAR raffle in Feb - Aquatica made the sump to my knowledge. All I know is it had a ton of tickets in the jar and I threw one in for a why not and got lucky. At first I was going to sell it but then I...

    Hippo Tangs Bred in Captivity!

    Came across this article the other day and definitely worth the read - nat geo does some great work! Very interesting to see if we cant start rearing more of these amazing aquatic animals.

    Sump for Sale/Trade

    So after 4 years of swaps and never winning anything in a raffle my father came to the first one ever and won the custom sump made by Aquatica in the LEAR raffle. After just restarting my 75 with a brand new sump and only having one more tank in a Biocube, I don't really have space let alone...

    Need help with sump water level

    I took out the sump and added gutter guard. The sumo is at constant level in all 3 chambers but with the auto an apex I don't think it's an issue. My other quick question is that when I turn off my return my water rises in the sump from back syphon but then there's some detritus in the return...

    Need help with sump water level

    The skimmer overflowing isn't an issue. I have code written into my apex when the return gets shut of or power is lost the skimmer turns off and then has a 5 minute delay to restart. That's not an issue. I just wish i had the sumo designed way more efficiently. Any idea how much a sump...

    Need help with sump water level

    Alright I'm gonna switch to a finer gutter guard. Running the sump at a level that is constant throughout is fine right? I would have my ago in the return but the entire sumo would flucuate. I don't see a problem running the water level the same in each chamber but I was just checking.

    Need help with sump water level

    Yeah the sump was designed relatively poorly. Way to much space in the first chamber and not enough space for a refugium and not enough baffles/bubble traps. If I take out the sponge and replace it with something like gutter guard and run the sumo at the same level constant with every chamber...

    Need help with sump water level

    Raising the skimmer was a thought but the dump was designed perfectly to get the skimmer cup off. If I raise it I cannot get the cup out. Also I cannot get the actual skimmer out and it would be a huge headache to even raise it at this point with eggcrate. As for the algae scrubber I feel as...
