    Does Magnifica foot color change?

    Heya all. Picked up a healthy-looking H.Magnifica a couple of weeks back and wondering if the foot changes color at all? Pretty green tips but the foot is a drab tan. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    250 External setup help

    Thanks - the skimmer continues to perform beautifully. Pleasure to work with so far though now I've gotta upgrade my skimmate export process. Draining into a bucket is unpleasant at best. Is there a spec on the drain hose or recommended type to use for extending the drain? Build thread <--...

    I'll bring some chaeto along as long as you don't mind some flatworm hitchhikers (the harmless variety - but if you don't have a wrasse they could become a nuisance in your display - my leopard makes short work of these).

    250 External setup help

    Sweet - thanks for the tips, slief! I'm still in test mode and need to make sure it won't flood the sump during power failure. Towards that end, I think I'm going to install a check valve in line. I haven't used those anywhere in my setup yet. Any issues with check valves and a skimmer like...

    MTC Procal help - reaction chamber won't clear aur

    Ah, there we go. I thought I recall you doing something like this. Thanks for the refresher! I'll try tonight. So, you're talking about taking over the "vent" line (usually red tube)? Did you just cap the original 2nd chamber input line? Also, am I guessing correctly that there weren't any...
