Reef and Marine Fish Forum
Very new to marines (6 months) and have a small tank that was converted to marine before I bought it. Now long story short time, it was on a cartridge filter but I've made a sump and it was only when talking to George at Reefloat that he said I will be needing an overflow box (which I haven't got or even knew about). I must give a big thank you to George, I phoned to to buy a top up unit from him and he said he wouldn't sell me one just yet as I needed to sort out the...
I recently purchased new radions and I love them...my new headache is that I run a maxspect gyre 150 on my system and was looking at getting another and putting them on a smart controller BUT since setting radions up and reeflink I'm tempted by 2 x mp40qd instead and having full control of lights and flow via the app. What would you guys run and why? Got few sps colonies and mainly lps at the minute. Gyre looks more pleasing to the eye and does shift water but can be...
Its taken me a year since first starting to buy the equipment before i got to the point where i thought i was ready to take the dive and actually get the first water cycle started. I finally did that last week and have since realised how much more i need to understand! Thats not to say i wasn't expecting to have to learn more, just that its somewhat disappointing having carefully prepared for so long!
Anyway, i have an eaReef 900s, Radion XR30 Gen 3, Nyos Quantum 120 Skimmer, Jecod...
Sorry if i sound daft im new to the forum scene and dont like asking but im clueless with my new fishy toys i purchased last weekend.

Sat there all day yesterday trying to figure it out but no use. Like i said my tank has sps at the top with few softies and lots of lps on the bottom and middle.How do...
Hi guys, at weekend i drove over and met Phil077
to drop some zoas off for him
When i got there i was met by a massive tank and a happy fella who explained his fish tank is his absolute passion as he is retired but he has big trouble getting around not only does he not drive but has a walking stick
He has family scattered around but feels like he is putting them out of their way and as we all know we could hardly drag a family member who knows nothing of our hobby around an aquarium...
Good afternoon all,
Now that my new baby has arrived and is currently sat on the new stand, its time to start on the plumbing, i have, rather badly tried to draw some picture to give you an idea, if you could please just check it and make sure ive not missed anything or completely messed it up.
The return pump is a DCT-8000 variable pump, because the pump is a variable step, there is no ball valve to control the flow.
This is the main drain, I have 3 holes, 2 for drain, 1 for return,...
Back again with my lighting issues.
I rained my lighting in and manually removed the brown algae. This was last week.
Now the brown algae is rearing its ugly head again. Only lightly but still concerning.
It's destroyed 3 small Spls and a medium Lps.
Should I just tough it out?
I have also stopped my NoPox dosing as of today. Could the dosing be the cause? Any helpers, please?
