    Identification Please

    I just got back from a 3 day vacation, which I had a buddy feeding my corals and fish, when I see hundreds of these things in my tank. Does anyone have any idea what they are and if they are a problem? (The little brownish green things on the acrylic)

    Sequence Barracuda 115v or 230v

    I just purchased a new Sequence Baracuda water pump. It comes wired for 115V and can be rewired for 230v. Is there any reason to give it the 230v other than motor life? Is there a savings on electricty by going to 230?
