  1. I'll take a Cobalt heater. PM inbound.
  2. I'll take it. Message sent for Paypal info. Thanks.
  3. Yeah, I realize that and not complaining about the price. I'm looking for two media baskets.
  4. Edit: Sorry thought this was for two media baskets.
  5. I'd go Red Sea.
  6. I've been reading some reviews that say the pump that comes with these is not that good. What's everyone here's experience and if you had to replace the pump, what did you go with? Thanks for any input.
  7. PM sent on the Minimax. That Nanobox is damn tempting too.
  8. Thanks. Sounds good, Steve knows his stuff. How are the Eheims in terms of heat and noise?
  9. Thanks! I'm looking forward to getting it all setup.
  10. I just picked up an IM 20 and want to change my pump to later add a 9001. I've been digging through threads looking for a consensus on which pump(s) to go with? I like the two pump/straight hose idea. What's the latest best pumps for this application? Thanks for any input.
  11. Just picked up a mint used Fusion 20 and IM stand for $150. It came with a few extras too. The pump doesn't work but I'm going to replace that anyway. I've been out or Aquaria for a while but the bug has hit again. The tank was too good of a deal to pass up and not do another. My wife disagrees...lol. I've been reading up a bunch and here's what I'm planning: Have: -Current USA Orbit IC LED w/EFlux PH (got a smoking deal on this too at about $130, I don't plan on anything too light needy) -came with inTank media baskets -older Vortech MP10 (I may not use/need this with the EFlux PH I have) Need: -new quieter pump(s)/hoses to fit Tunze skimmer eventually (what's the consensus on which pump(s) to go with?) -AutoAqua Smart Micro ATO w/IM HydroFill Ti return bracket -Cobalt Aquatics Neo-Therm 75w heater Eventually: -Tunze 9001 protein skimmer -inTank fuge basket in accessory chamber -JBJ Nano-Glo refugium light Maybe: -IM Spin Stream return nozzles -partially cover intake slots to raise water level/volume (use inTank surface skimmers?) -IM MiniMax desktop media reactor -IM micron filter sock in one media chamber Rear chambers: -left media chamber: media basket w/Stevie T filter floss (top), Purigen (middle) and Chemi-Pure Elite (bottom) -left accessory chamber: inTank fuge basket -middle: Tunze skimmer eventually -right accessory chamber: heater, maybe another fuge, maybe media reactor -right media chamber: IM micron filter sock? I've got a bunch of nice Pukani rock and about 30lbs of Tropic Eden Aragasnow sugar sized sand from back in the day. I'm not sure if I will go with this or Reefsavers and another type of sand. This is a work in progress of course and I've been traveling a bit. Hopefully I can get things started over the holidays.
  12. Excellent. Thanks for the info.
  13. I'm eyeballing a micro. Is it easy to upgrade the magnet?
  14. Thanks for the reply! My Orbit IC came in but I haven't had a chance to open the box as I've been traveling a bit. Hopefully everything is in there as you noted. Yeah, I'm going to go with the bracket mount and just picked it up for $28 shipped from DrsFS. I think it will look better too. I picked up the Fusion 20 w/stand for a steal so this is coming together nicely so far. That's good news about the pump too. I also have an older MP10 that I may add as well. I need to get a return pump(s) for the Fusion so I'll be reading up on what works best there so I will have good flow.
  15. Excellent review. Thanks. I bought an Orbit IC through DrsFS as well. I got the same deal as you at about $170 shipped w/$50 GC included. When do you receive your pump and hub? Will it be in the same box or do I need to submit something else? I'm excited about getting it. From your review it sounds like it will fit my needs well. I'll be putting it over a Fusion 20 and not keeping anything too light demanding. I think I'm going to get the mounting racket too as I prefer that but am wondering how solid it is?
