  1. Buy you a 31 Series Deep Cycle Marine Battery with the biggest RC value that you can find or afford. Try to stay away from a marine starting battery or a dual purpose battery. Look at the labels and make sure it's a deep cycle. I have two Deka Brand batteries in my boat that I have used in an emergency before I bought a generator.
  2. As long as the valve is on the output side of the pump should be fine
  3. I used them for some time and never had any issues. If I look in my pump parts drawer I will probably find one or two pumps and some parts still around, I know I have a Rio 800 which was a dependable little pump. I think I used something around a 2500 for a return.
  4. The one you are using as a cheato reactor is a NextReef MR1 reactor, with what looks like the hang on adapter installed, I use the same one for carbon. Nextreef made a two chamber one called the Monster if I remember correctly. The flatter one is a NextReef reactor also but not sure on name, think they may have called it a Shorty. Not sure what the white one with the pump is but was definitely set up for biopellets with that nozzle setup. I don't think you could easily modify any of these to be a Calcium Reactor.
  5. I think Dr. Mac did a video on Maxima's recently and said that the smaller ones that he sold were farm raised and that if you found a larger one it would be a wild collected clam and usually have some type of parasite or something. Maybe check his site for the video. I had a Derasa that I bought at about 4" that was probably 8"-9" when I lost it, most of the Maxima's I have had over time were bought about the 3" size and never had one get very large in my tank. I've always wanted to try a Squamosa.
  6. Just keep an eye on your skimmer, will probably have to adjust it to keep it from overflowing.
  7. Maybe your tank is just way too young and small to support the shear number of corals that you have in there
  8. Sure looks like Alk burn to me also, my corals looked the same recently after a big Alk spike
  9. I just used a normal black aquarium bulkhead from brs. Had to trim off one edge to make it fit the space. No problem in 9 yrs
  10. I removed mine that wouldn't stop dripping and replaced with 1.5" bulkhead in the 100g rubbermaid
  11. Dont know if they fit red sea or not but these are ones i use http://www.filterbag.com/PONG100P4P-p845.html
  12. I just recently placed my first order with saltwateraquarium .com, almost every order has shipped from Gettysburg, PA and arrived in 2 days. Keep up the great work and thank you for sponsoring WAMAS
  13. When temp probes fail they either read really low or really high values. I wrote a statement If Temp<60 htr off, if temp >82 light off and fan on. If you run a chiller I'd write a statement of if temp>85 then chiller off
  14. Yeah, I just had to download a app to resize the image to get it small enough to post. Maybe I'll post more pictures now. I do need to get the polyp labs lenses out and try them to try and clean up the color of the pictures though. They always look either washed out or blue.
