Ok everyone I have been looking to replace my MJ1200 return pump for a silent one. We recently moved to a new studio apartment and noise has become an issue with it. I was looking around and there isn’t that much information as to what pumps fit comfortably and silently into the return chamber of this tank. the MJ1200 is , of course, discontinued, but the dimensions according to BRS are Dimensions - 6" x 3" x 2" it has been running for two years but we had a larger house before where the tank sat in a different room to where we sleep ...now here we are. the IM Mighty Jet (326gph) seems like an obvious choice, but it is $109. Not a problem but you do have to take a step back before you just dish out a hundred bux. I haven’t been able to find anyone using this pump in this tank, except for one snippet of a video on YouTube (scroll to 0:46) that shows it put into the tank, but only for a second and the pump looks like it doesn’t really fit except for an awkward placement where it is touching all the walls of the chamber.... doubt that will be very silent. But who knows...? The sicce silent line is pretty convincing but there are many mixed reviews out there. Some say it isn’t silent, others say the opposite. at this point, it isn’t the cost that is the issue, it’s the silence that I desperately seek. The tank has a Vortech mp10, so all I really need is to push water back into the tank, I would guesstimate ~200gph should do the trick...
funkskunk posted a topic in Nano Reef JournalsDang it! Why am I starting back into this hobby again?! Haven't I learned my lesson? UGH!! Its expensive, its heart breaking, its frustrating, its time consuming, its, its.... so dang awesome!! Man, I can't help myself saltwater is the best. Yeah it makes no common sense to keep a tank, but dang its just so cool! Let's spend hundreds of dollars to do the impossible and keep a tiny section of the gigantic ocean in our moderately stable electrified homes with all the variables of life to throw challenges at us. Aren't we adults? We are supposed to make educated smart decisions with our money and choices. Put our time and money in stable proven safe investments, drive a Honda, eat organic salad, workout everyday, and go to bed by 10pm... right? Meh, screw it lets do this! So here's the short back story: Ive kept fish since I was a kid, typical 20gal community freshwater tanks... college age I move to the notorious 55 gallon and Oscars... transitioned shortly form African Cichlids to... aggressive Saltwater FOWLR tank... upgraded to a 90 gallon and had that for about 10 years (loved my Clown Trigger, Harlequin Tang, and 3foot Snowflake Eel).... got married, dog, kids, no tank for about 10 years... my 6yr old really wants a fish (he's talking to the right guy)... pondering it for a while... digging the new AIO's... decide to pull the trigger on a tiny tank because I'm sick of 10-20 gallon water changes and I figure why not try something new! So with this build I'm trying to do it right from the start, I've served my time in the hobby and know it pays to pay up front for quality equipment. So I've spent the coin on a nice tank and light. I'm new to this whole Auto-top-off world so I'm learning there. I'll post a list of current/future equipment later. But for now I just wanted to get my build thread started and say Hi to all you expert nano keepers out there. You don't know it but you've already helped me a ton with your build threads and advice, hopefully I can share some tips along the way. Oh of course why The Goby/Pistol Project? Well my son loves diggers and construction (what 6yr old boy doesn't) and I was pondering what to stock the tank with. Well why not the coolest construction crew in the ocean? I showed him a couple videos of goby/pistol shrimp pairs and he was hooked. I like it too as they will provide entertainment as well as be beautiful to look at. Also I'm gonna attempt this corral thing, thats a whole scary new world for me as I've just done the aggressive fish route. But I think if I can get the equipment dialed in and weekly water changes it should be fine, right? Here goes nothing!!
anizato posted a topic in Biological FiltrationI am re-setting up a Fusion 10g and I want to house mainly an anemone some chalices maybe a stick if i am lucky ...oh and my clownfish. So wanted to get a conversation started regarding the filtration I currently have in mind: Was thinking of going with: Reef Glass Protein Skimmer MarinePure Ceramic Spheres Chaeto Algae Reactor Do you guys think this is overkill? What you think? Thanks for your time.
