    Received the chemi pure elite and blue. Thanks Nick!

    I like the plumbed in system idea. You could have chaeto or a frag rack setup in it too, to let it do double duty. Having said that, at 150gallons I would probably go for it in the display.
  3. Ah yes, the archimedes death ray.

    stand ideas? 40b specific

    Normally you just run your sump low enough that if it loses power and drains it doesn't overflow. Also, I've got that stand for my 20L (link in signature). It has worked well. Didn't realize skinning it was so common.

    You might just have a moderate slacker who has shipped but not had anything show up. That's what I'm hoping.

    Ha, I was joking. I assume those who have received by now are eligible.

    I get that it's verbose, but it's grammatically correct.

    You should limit the drawing to those who met the shipping deadline and have had their recipients confirm receipt, but have yet to receive theirs.

    How? I used a fake name. Untraceable.
  10. I just use fountain pumps for large HMax applications.
  11. I would think lighting would be by far the biggest challenge. You'd pretty much have to live somewhere tropical and have an outdoor tank or large sunroom. Circulation could be achieved with a watermill or something similar. The tropical aspect helps with the heat also. Pretty sure battery packs and air pumps weren't common in the late 19th century.

    Moving tank across the room

    Why not just buy another 20L and move it straight over? Sift the old sand as you throw it out.

    Frankly, I'm just surprised the M&Ms weren't tossed.

    Macintosh Classic - pico reef

    Just looked through this thread after reading your 40 build. Am I missing something, or is there a blenny in a 3g?

    Ha. Seems overengineered, but moving a sumped system adds a level of complication.
