I would be willing to trade for a smaller unit possible a 1/4 hp or 1/5 hp that would fit behind my stand or sell...

    Milwaukee PH controller

    I bought this when I purchased my Calcium reactor. It controls the PH if it get's too high, but that doesn't do me any good. I wan't the CO2 to shut off if the ph is too low. Is there anyway to invert this? I've been running it as a monitor for a long time, but finally thought to ask this...

    Question on pump size.

    This is a little after the fact, but I have a 90 All-Glass pre drilled. I've been running a mag 5 and decided it was time to upgrade. So I purchased a mag 9.5. According to All-Glass's web site, the overflow will handle 600 gph (2400 gph rated pump at 5 feet of head). I would suspect I...

    Overflow rating question

    Anybody know what the gph overflow for an all glass 90 gallon with a built in overflow is?? I checked out the All Glass web page and I didn't find any info there. I need to upgrade my pump in my sump, and was wondering if I should go with a mag 9.5 or mag 7. I appreciate the advice. Rob

    Strange calcium tests

    I have purchased two different calcium tests, and I'm having the same problem with both tests. I have a hagen and a salfertest, both behave the same. I add the first two items to my water, I then add the single drip, then mix, add another drop then mix, but the problem is the color never...

    While I was on Vacation in the Fla. Keys last week. I was in a resteraunt that had a couple of sw fish tanks setup. They had two 55 gallon tanks setup with the sunken boat and a ton of fish. These weren't terrible, but when I saw the 125 I was completly disgusted. They had not one but 2...

    Someone posted an article about the diatom bloom over south Florida a while back. I was down there the last two weeks and there is a film over the water that looks like pine tree pollen. It was nasty. I'm guessing that is what is visible on the satellite image. I thought this was some...
