A good stick with a needle of lemon juice does a great job. If your nem didn't die it's because you didn't stick it good.

If the sand is still on the bottom you haven't got too much flow. If the sand is flying around the tank, you've overdone it.

The issue is that your skimmer is removing whatever you added to the tank. If you want the stuff in there, don't skim. If you want it removed, skim. The skimmer probably will act up for a bit, if it...

The barb fitting is directly fitted to the bulkhead. I think I have found a solution with Phyxius though. Is this a modified version by the previous owner do you think?

What you do depends on what you keep. The filters are probably not such a great idea, but without knowing more about your system it's hard to say.

A protein skimmer is a very good idea. You don't...

Pack it all into large rubbermaid containers. It's cold there so you should provide a method to keep the heat up as much as possible. I have done a couple of tank moves and things get upset, but they...

Hello All,

It does appear to be a squirt, also called a tunicate. The limpets are vegetarian so I doubt it was being eaten. It doesn't look any worse for the wear.

I use a threaded adapter to fit the pump and just unscrew it.

PVC glue is what bonds the pipe, and it is reef-safe.

No metal is okay for continuous contact. Stainless holds up better than others do, especially 6061T6, but salt is too corrosive and it is not safe over time.
