I'm curious about this as well. I have 4 powerheads in my 40 breeder that all point toward the center of the tank. There's good chaotic flow at the center, but along the bottom sides of the tank it's...

I have an A. samoensis colony that was probably 3-4" across when I bought it. It had bare skeleton inside and managed to regrow tissue over those bare portions even though they're shaded. Even if it...

For accurate thermometers I think you're best off going with the cheap glass thermometers or a more expensive controller like the Ranco. The digital thermometer I bought was off by 2-3 degrees and...

I think a Mag 2 would be a lot for a topoff pump. I use an Aqua Lifter which pumps at 3.5 gph, allowing the freshwater to mix more slowly. Plus, it's a vacuum pump that can pump either air or water....

The frozen stuff will sink, but the freeze dried needs to be rubbed between your fingers while holding underwater in order to absorb enough water to sink.

They also seem to suggest running it with a MJ 400 and didn't notice any difference in output between models. If they're basing the 10x flow on the MJ 400's performance, then that's only 1060 gph. I...

Wow, sorry to hear about your loss. My guess is that you removed a large portion of your bio-filter with your old rock. Then adding the dried rock (which probably had lots of nutrients left in it if...

I run my return pump through my chiller and don't see any reason to do otherwise. The chiller will perform better when it gets the proper flow rate, and additional pumps are just wasteful. Do keep in...
