Hello ! New to your forum but not new to the addiction. Current tanks 135 in wall Oceanic reef tank and 45 AG show. First reef tank was a 10 AG 175watt M/H 10 long years ago. If you can make that work then your can definitally make a 135 work so I moved into the 135. So much for the bio.
After months of stewing over what nano to buy. I ended up with the BC29. Prefer topless, M/H and VHO but because I will be keeping this tank in my public office I thought the BC would help keep kids, cleaning people and other things out.
Many things going on pre water, I was hopeing to find a comperhensive list of mods, "that work". Any Ideas where to find one? Been lurking RC, RL and now your forum trying to sort it out, but digging though old post and doing searches has worn me out.
Building my own Skimmer, copy of the Sapphire, going well. I wish I would of pulled the Bioballs out and the BB floor before I started the skimmer I could of made the skimmer about 3" taller.
I think I have the lighting sorted out thanks to you guys. PC's arghh! Guess I will have to learn to like them.
I hate extra pumps in the real realestate and would like to put 1 in the 1st stage. Has someone done this? I am thinking I will need to increase the size of the intakes to make it work. Anyone have any thoughts on this I would be most grateful. I have a old Aquaclear Powerhead #301 setting around and it fits nicely. I know the output on this isn't much but I don't plan on keeping SPS's so alot of water movement isn't imparitive.
