    I am thinking of changing the water cooling fan on my 130d to something a bit more powerful. I'm struggling to keep my temperature under control. Do you know what the stock fans are rated at for RPM and CFM? I haven't got room for a chiller.

    Hi Neil, from your signature it suggests your temperature is 26c ? what temperature are you looking to reduce to ?? unfortunately I do not have the technical information your require regarding the water cooling fans.

    Hi Poohpouri, It will really depend on the type of animals you predominately have, however, Reef Energy is taken through the tissue of Corals hence it also being available to non-photosynthetic animals, check out this link The Story Behind The Development of Reef Energy | Red Sea

    Hi Poohpori, I would go for a dosing when the lights are on based on your stock list, you could split the dosage 80% day time 20% night time, just remember you need to turn the skimmer off for at least 30 minutes.

    Hi Mel, are you using Red Sea Foundation A to replenish your depleted Calcium ? if so the dosing of Coral Colors is very easy.

    For every 10ml of Foundation A you dose you ad 1ml of each Coral Color, A,B,C & D.

    If you are not using Foundation A you first need to make allowance for the dosing of Strontium and then add Coral Colors at a rate of 1ml per 100 litres for every 20ppm of Calcium replenished.

    Just set up my Max E-260 and I find the left and right pumps to be very loud. Should the block sponges be pushed all the way down so they rest on top of them?

    So I'm thinking of buying a red sea all in one reefer, does you know any distributers that are local to OL15 area Manchester to Leeds sort of range. Like to go and take a look, I remember the great display at the farm in Oldham but that's all closed down now.
    cheers
