    40 Breeder with only overrated Tunze skimmer as filtration ?

    Hey guys, so currently I had to go fallow and am treating my fish in a 20 Long and I put my inverts and rock in a 20 High. I was running a 35 gallon rimless cube with a Seachem tidal 55 and a Fluval PS1 skimmer. While I wait I decided I'm going to sell the 35 cube and upgrade... Now I wanted to...

    Do You Keep CUC in the Sump of Your AIO?

    Just curious if people ever have CUC in the sumps of their AIO? I have a JBJ45 I've noticed quite a bit of algae growth back there and a lot of it is really hard to get to to clean out. The only concern I could think of was them making their way to where a return pump or the skimmer was, but I...

    (Innovative Marine 30gallon long) Vectra S2 vs. Neptune Cor-15 Return Pump: Will it fit!?

    Hello again friends, I have a IM 30 gallon long AIO tank and I'm trying to upgrade my return pump, I saw a video from Marine Depot shoving a Vectra S1 into the rear sump.

    WhiskyTango's WATERBOX 20

    The downsize is complete, and I couldn't be happier with my new AIO cube. Also the stand sits perfectly on a 18x18 tile.

    Hi All, My name is Dan and I am new to [email protected] and saltwater, though I do have some freshwater experience. Just picked up a Waterbox 30.2 AIO and it was delivered a couple of days ago.

    Bio pellets in reactor help.

    I was wondering if anyone has used bio pellets in a reactor in the chamber after their skimmer. I have an AIO tank (DIY) and have a spare chamber that I am looking at putting a biopellet reactor in. However, this chamber is after my skimmer and before my return pump chamber. I have read a few...

    New to saltwater, need help with a protein skimmer

    Hi guys, I'm mostly a freshwater guy, but I recently picked up this 80 gallon acrylic cube AIO tank with a protein skimmer, and I'm thinking about building up a reef tank in it.

    Hair Algae in 30g AIO Refugium

    I have a lot of hair algae in my chamber which I use as an refugium to grow chaeto. The chaeto grows very nicely but so as hair algae. It becomes very thick in less than a week everytime I clean it. My main display has little to no algae though. Just some on the glass. I run the light for my...

    Hi there, I'm a high school science teacher looking at adding a ~100 galloon mixed reef setup to my chemistry classroom. I'm looking at placing the tank behind my desk by a window where the tank could possibly be viewed in the hallway as well. A see-through peninsula is not a must, but would be...
