    help with two crazy tangs

    You also have only 2 tangs. Not to harp on the fact of the tiny tank for tangs, if you keep more than one you need at least three. This will keep the aggression spread out over them all, instead of one dominant fish killing the other. For three tangs a 180 should be fine. Before I knew...

    CPR overflow---anyone wanna sell one

    You could also do the Stockman mod on the pipes to get the added height instead of the baffles, but the principle is the same, water needs to be above the bottom of the u-tubes.

    Feeding question-sump users

    New website design

    Hey, I really like the site, but one suggestion. Give a button to cut off the music. It kinda wears on the nerves after a while. The organization is cool. Nice tanks.

    getting my sump/fuge drilled is becoming a PITA

    Starfish, they are correct. Or may be, I should say. Make sure your glass is NOT tempered glass or it will explode. The same thing will happen to the tank as when a car windshield breaks, it will shatter into tons of pieces.

    Can these two different fish get along together in a school, or should they be kept separate?
