    Sump-overflow Works Great, Doesn't Loose Prime, But Get Bubbles In Wet/dry Pump

    Yes.. I'm thinking making the overflow outlet higher. If I'm thinking right that should retain more (deeper) water in the weir and help eliminate air bubbles.

    Sump-overflow Works Great, Doesn't Loose Prime, But Get Bubbles In Wet/dry Pump

    Thanks for the reply... no... you can see air bubbles coming right out of top of overflow tube before it even gets to Toms pump. Oddly, if I unplug the Toms wet/dry pump and also kill the return pump in the sump, wait a minute, then restart everything it runs without any air in line (So my...

    Sump-overflow Works Great, Doesn't Loose Prime, But Get Bubbles In Wet/dry Pump

    Hello, thanks for the reply. Return pump in sump is on bottom of 10g tank and tank is 3/4 full. And that would have no bearing anyway as the air bubbles are in the web/dry pump intake (from overflow pipe) and has nothing to do with the sump return pump. But I appreciate the reply.

    Sump-overflow Works Great, Doesn't Loose Prime, But Get Bubbles In Wet/dry Pump

    Someone please help me understand this.... I built this PVC overflow and it works great. To ensure I don't loose prime I added a Toms wet/dry pump as suggested at 4:45 in the video. (see screen shot below) With the dry/wet pump off the overflow works great, makes NO noise, and repeated...

    Any Anole Keepers Here?

    Yes... I received a "basking light" with but I'm not sure what the bulb is... it's a 60watt blue bulb but I can find no specs on it by the supplier of the kit. Obviously, if I do the 55g I'll need more lighting. The anoles had a good cricket meal this morning and seem to be doing fine. I...

    Any Anole Keepers Here?

    Hi.. Thanks for the reply. I'm normally posting about fish... I enjoyed feeding wild anoles here in North Carolina this past summer. My grown kids thought it be fun to give me some anoles for Christmas! So now I have a 10g starter with 3 female anoles. I have been wanting to do a vivarium...

    RCS fills 20g tank - Must be something in the water? vbg WOW

    Yes... I love the CT moss.... I'm trying to pull out and get rid of all else. I don't like that the vals got so big. They were very average for about 8 months then they just took off and grew like crazy. They are another buy a year ago from a seller in the forums. Through the vals are too...

    RCS fills 20g tank - Must be something in the water? vbg WOW

    I'll take some pics at next feeding... I am probably overfeeding them. They love Wardley shrimp pellets and I like to feed it as it's cheap. There is never any left over. I also feed Ocean Nutrution Shrimp Wafers every 2-3 days but who can count out 150-200 little wafers? Ha! That is the...

    RCS fills 20g tank - Must be something in the water? vbg WOW

    Hello, Fun post... Not really looking for any answer(s).... feel free to comment though.. 13 months ago I purchased 15 RCS from a member of this forum. I put them in a 20g tank with a dozen Harlequin Rasbora who never touched a one of them (that I know of) or their offspring. The tank is now...

    Will Taiwanese Dragon Micro Goby (Schismatogobius ampluvinculus) eat tiny MTS?

    Thanks! One is in a tank that has BDBS substrate. He stays pretty much black and tan striped. He like to bury himself with only his head sticking out. The other is in sand and he stays a medium and light tan to match the sand but so far he has shown no interest in burrowing.. Interesting...

    Will Taiwanese Dragon Micro Goby (Schismatogobius ampluvinculus) eat tiny MTS?

    I have two Taiwanese Dragon Micro Goby's (Schismatogobius ampluvinculus). From reading I see suggested food is "meaty foods", frozen Mysis shrimp, "live foods" possibly shrimp pellets. One is pretty small and it looks to me like he standard frozen mysis shrimp is even too large for his...

    AC is out... What is Max "safe" temp for Angelfish?

    Thanks. I thought mid 80's would be OK. I'm a bit paranoid because I lost some very nice fish in my Saltwater tank. The remaining SW fish are all now over in my son's tank.

    AC is out... What is Max "safe" temp for Angelfish?

    Thanks... But read my post please... My post states that I am icing my tank. It's a 75 gal. and I'm having to dump in a LOT of ice just to keep it down to 83, 84. I'm in NC and my temp here is 95 out. Inside my home it's getting close to 90. And again I'll ask... What is the highest temp...
