    Hey everybody so I'm setting up a 18g mantis tank with 20l sump/refugium. I want to make this a display refugium. This will be a skimmerless setup. It's a 3 chamber sump but not your normal one.

    Hey guys, I came across a really cool tool that DIYers can use to create parts that are extremely fine (in detail), specific, and relatively cheap. 3D printing has taken off with this company, shapeways, where users upload models to the site and people buy off their shops. The beaty of it is...

    So, right now my overflow is similar to a Durso (it sucks in air - no full siphon) and the intake is pretty much silent. However, the drain into the sump isn't. Instead of draining above the water line, I am draining below the water line to make it quieter. To prevent the flushing noise...

    The majority of aquarium lighting setups these days requires the light to be suspended above the aquarium. There are loads of different ways to accomplish this task, but who wants to build a big bulky canopy that makes it hard to access your aquarium? If not a canopy, who wants to drill holes in...
  8. Water Chemistry
    I have started a kalk drip, and instead of using top off water I am using an Air pressure drip system that utilizes a 5 gallon water container, some hard 1/8" tubes, air tubing, a bleed valve, a small air pump, and a PH control meter. My main question is to at what PH would be the best to set my...
