    I must say Thank You for this build. I am at the point where I will be upgrading to the exact same model and size of tank. Many of my questions and concerns have been answered by your pictures and posts.

    Protein Skimmer

    Aqua C Remora or Remora pro. Older technology but still do a better job than the bargain skimmers and can be found used at great prices. Big enough to keep around for your upgrade if you stay under 75gal.

    Potential new salt hobbist

    Most of us use light diffuser purchased from lowes or home dumpster to keep the carpet surfers at bay. We call it egg crate also. A sump allows you to keep pumps, heaters, skimmer, biomedia, maybe a fuge out of site and increase the water volume in your system leading to more stable water...

    Sump / Wet Dry Swap

    hello all, I am to the point where I want to pull out my wet/dry w/bioballs and replace it with a sump refugium set up. Do I just unhook one and hook up the other? I would like to use the live sand and some of the live rock from my 24g nano in my sump. Is this a good idea? I plan on using a 33...

    Things are definitely looking up. I found an RC180 this morning for 100 bucks. Talked to the guy, explained what had occured and the info I needed.

    Thoughts on the new Canon s90?

    Canon has a superzoom (sx10is or sx20is) point and shoot model with an aquarium setting. Have no idea about the s90. I went for a NikonL100 because of price and it has a "burst" mode for action shots, i have not figured it out yet. Stay with the canon IMO.
