    Canopy fan: suggestion for air flow direction?

    Well It seems that everyone has there own way. But I think everyone is on same track here. What might work for somebody else might not be the best for you. I think that the canopy fans should be use to remove heat from the lights not the tank per say. I have a negative air pressure system in my...

    wave2K vs. Tunze Wavebox

    I have also looked into both of these units. Everyone that has the Wk2 says these should have bought the Wavebox. Some of the big differences are; the size, the noise, the Quality, and finally the product. When I say the product I mean Tunze. They are a well known company with many great product...

    Is there a tank made to fit this skimmer? -- (see pix)

    Hey that's an idea. Build the sump into the stand so it will be as big as possible.

    I hear that the Eheim pumps don't put out any real heat that's why I change and put the pump into the sump instead of external. The little yellow box will have LR rumble in it. jwccwj: why would I use the pump for water? Is then any benefits to this? The reason I choose this why is so the dirty...
