  1. Help Choosing A Return Pump

    Hello Everyone,
    I need help choosing a return pump for my upcoming aquarium project. It is 8' x 3' x 3'. It will have a 20" synergy reef overflow. The information on their website says it will has a 2,500 gph flow rate. There will be two 1 1/2" returns (one on each end of the aquarium on the back.) I have been looking at various pumps but I'm just not sure which way to go or even what GPH range to look at. I plan on having a number of vortechs and/or maybe maxspect gyres for ...

My tanks were all less than stellar because I haven't cleaned the glass lately, and it occurred to him that he could try using his iPhone 7 Plus to take some underwater pictures. My frag tank is low enough for an easy test. So here are three he shared.

  4. sump

    I have an appointment this Saturday with the tank builder to finalize the sump design. Really excited! Stand is done and powder coated black. I plan to skin it anyway so the color didn't matter much to me. We are trying to figure out how to plumb the Genesis Pro system as well as the Lifereef calcium reactor and skimmer.

  5. restart

    Well, I have committed to a new tank, stand and sump. Tank will be a custom 72 long, 24 tall, 30 deep. Sump is still in the works but will be 60 long, 20 tall and 24 deep. Stand will only be 30 tall this time. I'll be using all the equipment from the previous tank minus the Lifereef sump and overflow. Those will be used for a 65 gal quarantine system in th basement sump room. Lots of work and planning still to do
