    My new Elos tank has now been up and running with fish for 2 weeks now. This morning I found the first signs of hair algae on the rocks. Is this all normal? It seems to be covering most of the rocks. The rocks (started with dry Marco) have been cycled in a Brute can for the past 10 months so...

    Aquarium and flow

    I am contemplating using the Triton system on my new tank. I have a used Elos 120xl which has a 1/2 return pipe, a quick google search shows its at best good for 800 gph. The 127 gallons in the Elos times 10 has me looking for 1250 to 1300 gph. This seems like a substantial shortcoming. Has...

I ordered the Elos Expert Line buffer to raise it. Just...

    ELOS 120 vs IFALOS Seriphos

    So I'm finally going to take the plunge after a decade of dreaming about a reef tank! The hard debate for me right now is either an Elos 120 or this new IFALOS Seriphos.
