    Starting a new tank...

    Anyone else vouch for sponge filters? Any certain size or number of them I should run in a 20 long?

    How do you feed your cory cats?

    I kept some peppered cory's for a few years. I always feed flakes in the day time and then when it was lights out I would sprinkle some pellets in since they feed more at night. I also had sand in my tank so they could dig for left overs. They never went hungry doing it this way for me.

    Starting a new tank...

    I was thinking of starting a new 20gal tank with some cory cats and/or shrimp maybe... I was wondering if a couple sponge filters would be enough filtration? If not would a canister be too much? I am really trying to get away from HOB filters. Thanks for any advice.

    Running a test run with tap water... I got the pumps tweaked with no micro bubbles thus far. All I have left to do is to divide the refugium to separate the sand from the pump. Then I will be focused on getting all the live rock completed and starting the cycling process. image

    I originally had plans to set the refugium up like this with the return pump out of the water. The pump didn't have enough power to pull and push the water I needed to the DT. image Since the above didn't work I just decided to do it the old fashion way. The reason I bought this pump is...

    This is 5/8'' hose running from the wet/dry to the refugium. The mag 5 pump sends the water over to the refugium where the Hydor L40 sends it up to the DT. image If you need to secure hose like I did then I really recommend getting some rubber insulated clamps like these so that you...

    Question 75g

    Depends on what kind of filter and light you are getting. Are there any corals in the tank? What kind of fish?
