I'd get the Euro-reef. My RS-80 honestly used to be pretty loud, but it's quieted down a ton, and now I barely hear it. It's easy to tune, and doesn't draw that much wattage. The AquaC is...

I would get the 9010. I had a 9005 with a sump kit and although it's a good skimmer, I feel the really short cup impacted skimming. The cup is so short that it doesn't take long for a good head of...

People aren't concerned with the fact that it's from China. It's the fact that the pump is a blatant rip-off of another manufacturer's design. They didn't even bother to make it look different.

Depends if you are fine with a skimmer in the tank vs having to have one HOB. I don't think the MCE-300 is enough for you tank, so you're better off with the mce-600. But personally I'd buy the...

Just regular old glass is a UV shield. Go to a glass shop and have something cut. You may want to have it tempered so it's tougher to break it.

Yea, details! I was considering giving this a try, but I didn't want to buy a wavy sea if I didn't know I could get a nanostream attached.

The Tunze 9002 is tiny, really tiny. You don't know how tiny until you see it. It's too small for a tank of that size. I'd go with either the Octopus 150 or the Tunze 9010. The 9010 super quiet...

Remember that if you buy the AquaC, Trigger, or Lifereef you are going to need to purchase a good pump to power them as well. So take that into your cost calculations for those skimmers.

Is this a DSB or a SSB? There's no reason you can't vacuum a shallow sand bed.
