It works just great, but i'm not happy with the pump i've got it hooked to. It's a Rio 800 (i know, but it was laying around..) that doesn't seem able to generate enough pressure to let me keep the topoff resevoir anywhere but level ...

How long can I go...

with no lights in my tank? one of my aquaspace light ballast bite the dust and is in for repair. It will take about 3 weeks before I get it back. I have an elegance coral, buble coral and frogspawn corals. So, the question is how long would you go with no lights? and would a regular 40w fluorecent light from Home depot help? Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks.

Eclipse system, enhanced lighting desired.

All right sports fans, today’s curve ball question. I have a 29-gallon glass reef tank with an Eclipse system. (If I had it to do over again I would not have done it but it was a gift.)

Surprise Babies

So I was feeding the anemones in the big tank tonite.. as I went to swish some silversides into their tentacles, I saw some little black gnat like things moving around.. so I got down on the floor to get a look in thru the side panel, and saw that it was a school of tiny banggai cardinals. I've had the pair for over 3 years, and had given up on them ever producing as ...

Need directions for Sanders Model 50 Ozonizer

If anyone can email me a copy of the owners manual on this ozinier I would greatly appreciate it. I am not sure how to hook it up to my system, or maybe the thing does not work properly. I bought it on ebay.

Any help would be appreciated, but ...
