    6 min virtual video tour of Vinpearl Land reef display in Nha Trang - Vietnam

    I visited Vinpearl Underwater World in Nha Trang - Vietnam back in Feb 2008 but only had a chance to edit the footage and post it online today.

    HOB Overflow Dependable Good Flow?

    Use powerhead to replace aqualifter? Are you alright? Obviously you haven't seen any powerhead spews water through the venturi due to coraline algae grow at the opening of powerhead nozzle. As dhnguyen said, you know nothing about HOB overflow.

    HOB Overflow Dependable Good Flow?

    You obviously haven't used one and you would recommend it. That';s like "I hear a story from a friend's friend of my friend" CPR overflow design is the worst design ever got invented. That is not to say that everyone will have problem with it but it's true to say that most folks will have...

    repairing a pump cord

    Any repair to the wire which is only about 12" away from pump is kindda scary to me. Of course you can do the repair and seal all you can but the possibility being electrocuted if submerged is much higher. How about fix it cord and think of runnign it outside the sump.

    Terrible morning - sump cracked!

    Mine baffles are glass and there were tight fit. I guess the baffles didn't force too much onto back and front pane enough for it to fail. I should have them lose fit as melee mentioned. How long did you have had that tank going until it broke? By the way, you current sump is looking good...
