You could put more rock in there in you want. More rock will give you more low-oxygen area to process nitrate. Bio-balls suck for that because they are in a high-oxygen area. Just make sure you keep...

You wouldn't need a chiller with a 175w MH. I've got 150w MH + 2x65 PC over my 25G and one 60mm PC fan blowing across the water provides more than enough cooling.

I'd go with MH.

After reading this, I think it would be possible. Just depends on how durable the coating is, if it needs to be on the inside of the tank.

In the case of American Marine's Calcium Monitor, I'm wondering why they didn't turn it into a controller. Seems like it would be easy enough to make it turn on an outlet if the ca drops to 400 or...

Why a lack of alk/ca controllers?

Maybe it's something I'm not aware of, but is there a reason why calcium and alkalinity controllers don't exist?

I would like a system that doses 2-part as it is depleted, not at set intervals....

Clowns will host in a bunch of things. You might want to check out frogspawn. No matter what you offer them, it's not guaranteed that they will though, even an anemone.

False percs don't naturally host BTAs so it may take some time for them to do it, if at all. It all depends on the fish I guess. My pair took a couple months to host my BTA. From what I've read, aqua...

I use a milk jug with a hose ran through the top that leads into an I.V. dripper. It's extremely simple, never fails and doesn't require an airtight container :)
