    what is ozone equipment?

    I thought you had to run carbon to break down the ozone before it heads into the main tank? Couldn't you just keep injecting it in small amounts or only run the ozone generator part-time with say the lights on/off timer?

    Output too high for skimmer?

    The Mag7 is rated at 700gph, close the the QuiteOne 3000, so they should perform similar with the AquaC EV-120. I think the 5000 is just to much flow for this skimmer without restricting the input with a valve. I'd put the Mag7 on the Skimmer and the 3000 on the return for the tank myself. Tom

It works well for me. If you're now using the Quiet One 5000 pump, put a flash light on side of the skimmer...

    growing phytoplankton

    You have to feed it. Like any algae (or plant) it needs nitrogen and phosphorus (aka common household plant fertilizer or Miracle Gro). I use, and highly recommend adding 1ml of Miracle Algae Grow per 2 litre bottle from Florida Aqua Farms rather than Miracle Gro plant fertilizer. It's all...

    HELP ASAP! Snail went in Anemone Mouth!

    it's normal. Mine deflate and re-inflate once a week or so. One night it was so small I have a hard time finding it. Next day it re-inflated to about 6" across. If the foot lets go of the rock or won't re-inflate within a day. Then I'd start to worry. Also, you may want to make sure you feed...
