    $200 Protein skimmer. Help

    I use the octopus BH300F on my 75g and paid like $175 a few months ago for it. For a hang on, its a real beast! I believe it is rated for a 135g but it my work for you if your bioload is not real heavy. I highly recommend this skimmer if you are not looking for a sump model.

    Tek light problem, please help!

    Are there any loose wires in the hood you can see? Maybe one wire to the two bulbs in question has a short, also check the end cap connections. I'd start in those areas first.

    Very cool!! I have only seen one other like that in person. I didn't know they changed color, thought there as a type that was naturally colored that way.....maybe not. Either way, very nice fish indeed!

    bleaching..too much white light???

    What kind of corals do you keep?? I think six bulbs are great for sps and some lps. The bulb selection you listed is mostly of higher par bulbs. You may want to go with a four bulb configuration as to not melt softies or at least go to two actinic bulbs in your six bulb configuration, that will...

    I've ran one on my 38g reef and it was ok. But a better suggestion for about the same cost is the Octopus BH-100 or BH 1000. It looks alot like the Bakpak, but is rated for up to 90g and is supposed to kick butt! I'm ordering a BH-1000 next week.

    Thanks for the responses! The chips don't go all the way through, they go about 1/2 way. It was suggested to me to dremel the sharp edges and fill the chips with epoxy(flush). Than go over the corner with two 3" wide pieces of 1/4" thick glass running from top to bottom secured with silicone...
