    Overflow & Pump Question

    The overflow will only supply water at the rate of return of the pump, however, it will max out at a certain point. If it is a 1" line, it is about 600 GPH. Mag 7 will work fine for your tank. To find out other pumps, take the amount of head you have, which is the height of the return line...

    Coral Feeding

    I personally use DTs phytoplanton 2 times a week... Ive got a 90 mixed reef. As long as you test for phosphates, and keep them in check, you'll be fine. Corals do need food as well as light, IMO.

    blue leg hermits safe???

    Make sure there are plenty of shells... Blue legs are the most agressive IMO. I stay as clear as possible of them. But i do have some in my 90, and they do tend to kill my snails. I just repepulate them 3 times a year

    Dead SPS? (Pics)

    I recomend never using epoxy due to the heat. Super glue gel is the only way to go. Did u check for bugs as well? any new aditions that could have brought in the bugs?

    Power Head

    Just responded to your other thread... Id go with a maxijet. Well worth the investment. For a 10, id get a maxi 1200, and get a hydro flo deflector.

    Live sand maintenance

    Gravel siphoning it may release toxins. A light siphon over the top wont hurt anything. I use a 1/2" nylon tube, and lighly go over the sand tomake it look nice.

    Kenya Tree Wilting

    My guess is it is still adapting to your tank and the lights. As long as the polips open while the lights are on, i wouldnt worry
