    Temporary anemone guard second opinion

    I am picking up an anemone tomorrow for my newest tank and my anemone guard hasnt arrived yet for my mp10. This is my solution that I have come up with and want a second opinion, should this be enough to keep an anemone out of the power head. It's made out of an old filter bag and some cable...

    Better a smaller pump run at 40% - or a larger pump run at 20%?

    I have a tank similar to a 2ft cube. I wanna buy a couple of Maxspect gyres. Either the 330s or 350s. At first glance, the 350 gyres would seem the more attractive option: The 350s are longer than the 330s - which means the flow is distributed over a wider area. The 350s offer the same flow...

    Wave Maker is dirty / Something Growing on it

    Hey guys, Ive started to notice these last few days some stuff on my wave maker only at the bottom and the front of it. I guess it looks likes hair or a spiders web, but I can only see it on the wave maker. Any ideas what it is or if I should be worried?

    Neptune WAV running in reverse - No idea why

    It does not happen all of the time, but every once in a while my WAV runs in reverse. It makes a buzzing sound when it does so. Here is a video and a screenshot of my settings. Any ideas why and how to stop it?

    Are Jebao Powerhead Magnets Submersible?

    I'm upgrading to a Gyre and wanted to set up the powerheads on each side of my rock work along the back wall of my tank. The magnets would have to be submerged as it is an AIO with the sump on the back. Are they okay to be submerged or will they rust and possibly leach?

    When should the refugium's powerhead (Intake pump) be on?

    Should my refugium's powerhead (pump) only be on when the refugium's lights are on or should it always be on? I figured if the lights are off, the algae is just resting, so no flow is needed? Also, how much nitrate reduction (%'s) can I expect a 5 gallon refugium (chaetomorpha) to have on a 100...
