    Ecotech MP 10 quiet drive

    Can someone who owns one of these pumps let me know how loud they are. I need a pump for Nuvo Fusion 20 but it is in my sons room so I need it silent, or near silent. If it makes a humming noise I will pass. Currently I am using a Tunze nano stream 6095' but it is too powerful and takes up a...

    GFO Reactor

    Which reactor is the easiest to clean? I have a TLF and it is a bit of a chore to clean. They all seem similarly designed so there may be not good alternative, but I thought I'd get MR's opinion.

    Picked up some Angels from Elos aqua studio

    First, let me say that this was the coolest fish store I have been to. Of course the place looks great because of the wall to wall elos tanks, but the real show stopper is the live stock they carry. A couple gems I saw today were a purple frilly rhino, two dr. Seuss fish, a bi-color yellow tang...

    Niger trigger in reef

    Currently have one from my FOWLR that I broke down. Anyone keep one in a reef long term? I know it will eat ornamental crustaceans but how will it fair with your average reef fishes? Just would hate to have it mature into a terror. I am hesitant to add to my recently re- set up reef tank.

    Mag Drive 12 Return pump question

    I plan on using a Mag 12 (1200 gph) as a return pump to my 180 gallon and to feed two reactors (carbon/gfo). The pump will be under the stand so only a few feet of head to the tank. Do you think the Mag 12 will provide sufficient flow for the tank and reactors?
