If you have aquarium equipment questions or ideas this is the place to do it. Discuss aquarium lighting, filters, skimmers, refugiums, reactors, and much more.
Aquarium controllers are a convenient way to keep an eye on the various water parameters in your aquarium. Aquarium Monitors allow continuous readings of your aquarium’s pH, ORP, salinity and temperature.
A protein skimmer or foam fractionator is a device used mostly in saltwater aquaria to remove organic compounds from the water before they break down into nitrogenous waste.
A quality aquarium water heater or chiller is necessary if you intend to maintain a successful tropical freshwater, marine fish or reef system. Temperature fluctuations often go unnoticed by aquarists and can cause stress to fish and corals.
The most popular and common types of aquarium lighting available for your reef aquarium include LED Aquarium Lighting, Metal Halide Aquarium Lighting, T5 High Output (T5HO) fluorescent and Power Compact fluorescent (PC).
A powerhead is a submersible water pump generally used for water circulation within an aquarium or to power a protein skimmer. External water pumps, available in a variety of sizes, may be used as return pumps (from a sump or wet/dry filter), for closed loop circulation or to drive a protein skimmer.
