    Auto Top off failing

    Thanks guys, i would expect reverse siphoning, where it would pull the water up from the sump and back to the reservoir, but it will also keep siphoning from the pump? I will be sure to keep the hose above the water line. As for Anti Siphon type holes. I should do that just as the line comes...

    Tangs keep dying in Quarantine

    Thanks for the replies. I have since put a new Yellow Tang and LN hawkfish in my QT. I took the sponges from the DT and also a piece of LR as well. I also have a small filter on there instead of just the sponge filter. They have done great for 3 weeks. I trust Paraguard far more then Prazi...

    Auto Top off failing

    I bought an auto top off system from autotopoff.com last week. Its a float switch that connects off a bracket that hangs in the sump. It connects to a controller the leads back to a pump which sits in a 23G reservoir. It worked great for a few days. Yesterday I came downstairs and the living...

All others have been. When I check ammonia it's fine. It's single fish and I changed the water weekly. 2...

    Tangs keep dying in Quarantine

    Cleaning is the one thing I assume is the issue. Its the the same as always though. I scrub the tank and heater with soap and sometimes vinegar, rinse it out well with RODI and let completely dry. The water movement is fine. The dual sponge filter i use in quarantine brings water up from the...

    Tangs keep dying in Quarantine

    So I have had no luck keeping Tangs of late. Over the past 6 months I have tried 3 Yellow Tangs from various places. I drip acclimate and put them in a quarantine tank, generally for a month. I scrub the tank, heater and all parts between fish and make Fresh RODI, and make the salinity .025...
