Re: Happy Birthday Flameangel #11
A very 'Happy Birthday' to you. It dose'nt seem long ago that you were PM-ing me with marine advice that has resulted in a resounding success with my set-up.
Have a good one.....

Re: external filters #12
Why have an external or internal filter on a marine system ???? They are just Nitrate factory's.The only use that I can see for a canister is to house carbon or a phosphate remover.

Re: live rock turning white #13
Seachem reef salt is the dogs,its got the lot and some IMO. My mate put me on to it and he breeds sea horses and cardinals in it, and since I have been using it my clowns have spawned 4 times and everything looks a lot better for it.

Re: What insect killer is safe to use near an aquarium? #14
If you have to use any in air nasties just cloak your tanks in wet blankets until the room has vented properly after treatment. I have done it in the past with no probs. Just make sure that the tanks are covered from top to floor with damp/wet blankets........

Re: I use rainwater and fill my aquarium with it ! #15
If it's good enough for Dick Mills, it's certainly good enough for me. Just as a precaution, it would be a good idea to run a carbon filter in it for an hour before you put it your tank......I do and it's 'propper water' not out of the tap c**p.......

Re: DIY Aquarium #17
I DO like the idea of a slope to silence the water splash.NICE ONE.....I would also read up on why vastly experienced marine keepers stay away from sponge filters and the like.Its beyond me ATM. Forget carbon as its only of use to get rid of meds in the system IMO. And use a BIG skimmer,TMC V2's or better to get the c**p out,and try to steer clear of cheap and nasty equipment as it costs more in the long run when you have to replace it. I am sure you will get it right..Also there is no such thing as a silly/stupid question.......

Could you use acrylic sheets for the whole thing? Would make it a lot lighter

Lighter but a lot more expensive.
EagleC I dont think your sump design is realy making the most of what you could do with it.I would suggest you do a lot of on line research at specific sites like UltimateReef.com and let us know your findings,as I am sure we would all like to follow this sump of yours to a successful conclusion. And hurry up we are getting impatient............

Re: next insane idea please - overhead sump. #20
Lighting will be a problem with a big lump of plastic in the way. Also plastic melts and distorts with heat from lighting. IMHO dont bother..............
