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...
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...
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.
What has worked for me is Hydrogen Peroxide dosing and no water changes.

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...
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?
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...
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...
