    Contemplating skimmer and return upgrade for 60

    That one definitely caught my eye, the pricing is great and reviews as well. For the protein skimmer, i think the Eshopps X-120 might be on my to buy list. Any one have any luck with that skimmer?

    Contemplating skimmer and return upgrade for 60

    So my birthday :celeb3: is coming up soon and I am going to use that as an excuse as normal folks would call it to upgrade or replace certain things on their reef tanks. I purchased a 60 gallon cube with a 10 gallon sump about 8 months ago, so far everything is working along good. It came with...

    60 Gallon Cube flow help

    Hi everyone, I currently have a 60 Gallon cube set up right now. My intentions are a mixed reef, I've had it set up for about 8 months now and just have a few LPS corals but plan on adding some SPS. Currently have a Mag 7 return pump that's rated for 700 GPH, I don't feel that it's really...

    Please help identify: Cyano or diatoms?

    Diatoms it looks like, if it blows around easily like dust then it is indeed Diatoms. Cyano is usually red but could be a dark brown depending on your lights and disappears with the lights off and shows up lights on.

    Can't get rid of Dino

    What has worked for me is Hydrogen Peroxide dosing and no water changes. The water changes caused the Dinos to bloom, so you're starving out the food source with no water changes. Then I dosed H2O2 to get rid of the remaining dinos.

    Red turf algae... Its back

    There are some tufts of it growing, I'm hoping that the vibrant will choke it out first. If not then either urchin or sea hare

    Red turf algae... Its back

    Just ordered some now, I read mixed things on it but I am hopeful that this would catch it early before it full on spreads all over my rocks.

    Red turf algae... Its back

    So my nightmare has come back to haunt me... Had this issue of red turf in my old nano aio and the decision to upgrade was part that it was infested with red turf algae. No matter what I did, phosphate at 0 with Hanna meter, 0 tds, lights for a week, dosing ho2o even dipping rocks in that full...

    Avast ATO Pump running ato pump from basement up to main

    Makes sense, so right now it has two separate wires going into a splitter that powers the optical sensor and pump. So would it make sense for me to splice a connector onto the avast pump and power it from the smart ato splitter?

    Avast ATO Pump running ato pump from basement up to main

    Hello! Just wanted to see if anyone has any experience running their Avast ATO pump from a basement level up 10-15 feet? I read that the pumps are good for 60ft of head pressure, aside from the pump it looks like i'll need the float switch too. Right now I am using the Smart ATO which is...

    Cooling tank

    Using a Dog Food container right now for the ATO, I have noticed an increase of use. Currently I can fill it with about 8 gallons of ATO and it'll last me a little over 7 days.

    Cooling tank

    Thanks everyone! With my old 30L, I had it in a room that was air conditioned so never really had this problem. I am going to try the fan blowing across the sump first, I may add another cabinet fan on the opposite side to increase air intake as well. Coming over from Nano-Reefs has shown me...
