    A Big Mistake..Need Help

    For the last few weeks, I have been turning pumps off when I feed and turn them back on 10 minutes later. Last night I forgot to turn them back on. I got up early today and noticed it was quiet and found what I have done. The tank heater was off and the temp has dropped to 70. Should I let the...

    MH ballast hum?

    I just got my light hung, turned it on, and the ballast makes the worst humming noise. Is that normal? I bought this light off the 'bay' and it's called Indoor Sun. The noise would drive me crazy. It's 400 w with a 14000 bulb. I know they get warm, but can I insulate the noise?

    Phosphate test kit ?

    What test kit do you recommend? I found many brands and wondered if one is better than the others. Nutrafin, Tropic Marin, Red Sea, Instant Ocean, Seachem, Salifert, and AP. I remember reading a post once that said most aren't any good. What do you think? Thanks in advance for any advice.

    Is this a bad idea?

    My plans to put a 29 sump under each of my 2 65 tanks won't work. The stands are not tall enough for the skimmers. What if I hook both tanks to one sump? I have a nice space between the two I can use. Do you see a problem or would that help both tanks be more stable? Thanks for any ideas here...

    Sweet Squamosa!!

    I just got my first clam!! It's the squamosa SWF had on sale this week. It's even nicer than I expected. It's a about 3 1/2 inches and opened as soon as it was in my tank. Now I have a couple of those dumb questions.... What is dangerous to a clam as far as livestock? I have 2 GSM clowns, 2...

    How to clean a used tank ?

    I recently bought a used 29 g tank to make a sump. It was previously used as a snake tank. What would be the best way to clean it?
