LMAO!!  Im hearing that janky noise right now from both tanks!!

 

I ordered the Tunze return for the EVOreef too, I'm sick and tired of the noise.  

 

The Aqamai comes tomorrow (to blow sand all over the place)...Im worried im gonna have way too much flow like I do in the EVOreef (the gyre is set a 10% and 30%reverse) and all you hear is snails and hermits rolling down the tank like a bowling balls going down the lanes. LMAO!

Are we talking traditional powerhead or propeller style? I have a jebao SW2 that might be loud, I can't really tell, cause I haven't put it in a tank yet, but i can hear a hum when it kicks on

Right now I have bees in a power head buzzing in the pico.

I'm down for anything that is small, with decent flow, and is quiet.  Basically I want it all.  Haha.

We will all find out tomorrow. If the Aqamai is pico friendly!!!

Tank got up to 80.2 degrees turned on one fan for 10 min or so, and it dropped a degree to 79.2 degrees.  Thats decent I think given that I will have two fans mounted.  I just need to get that regulator to turn heater or fans that everyone has what's it called?

I'm gonna look into the surface skimmer mod on the ac20 cause that cut up filter tube is terrible.

Glad your heater fits in the filter. I ordered a neotherm and it doesn’t really fit in the ac 50 and I think it’s not going to be attractive in the tank 😫. I might have to switch it out for one of my old marina 10w heaters similar to this that will fit in the AC

Yea dont really know why everyone is going so big on heater. This tank is only 2.5 gallons. With pump, hob filter, and leds. This tank gets to 80 on its own lol. Aquaeon 10 watt $10 very tiny

It's on delivery truck now....lol

 

I really didn't want to de rim it but with the aqua clear installed. A smidge of black trim was showing.  I wasn't having that, going from janky to classy 🙂

I can only imagine what ultra clear low iron, mitered edges would look like???? 🤤
