    I’ve seen setups with an adjustable valve. What line is it connected to? The return or the drain? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Also, when ordering bulkheads, is there a specific type I should be looking for? I’ve seen thread x thread ABS bulkheads and slip x slip bulkheads. Thx again for the help. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Plumbing planning

    Let me start by saying I’ve never setup a saltwater aquarium. So my questions will seem naive. So I’m starting to plan my plumbing for a 120gal tank. It has two 3/4” and two 1” drilled holes. Not sure if I can do a Bean Animal setup or not. My questions are 1) is the return line the larger of the two sizes? 2) do I need an adjustable inline ball valve? 3) if so, is that on the return line or the drain line? Any other insight is greatly appreciated. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    DYI Tank Stand question

    One other question. I tried to read the attached thread and too much back an forth. Can a nail gun be used instead of screws?

    Thank you. Planning on mounting a desktop on top. That will insure a level surface.

    DYI Tank Stand question

    Does anyone have plans for building a tank stand. I’m new and want to save some $$$ by building my own stand. Any ideas are welcome. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Plumbing question...

    Tom, it was great meeting you at MACNA. I learned a lot those three days. I also took a number of photos of tanks to get a better understanding of the plumbing. I look forward to seeing you and meeting others from WAMAS in the future. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Plumbing question...

    First, I don't know what to diagram as I only have beginner knowledge of what goes in the tank. I am purchasing a use 105gal reefer tank, sump, skimmer and return pump. So, the tank is already drilled. I don't have the foggiest clue as to what flows where and how. The only thing I can figure out is that the DT will have an overflow that will somehow flow to the sump. I don't know where the skimmer is placed in the line of flow. And I assume the return pump will push the water back into the DT. That's it for my knowledge. LOL What about calcium reactors, top off capabilities, other devices that add to the chain? That's what confuses me so far. I did locate a source that may work. If anyone can check it out for accuracy and comment, I would appreciate.

    Plumbing question...

    I'm new to the saltwater tank hobby. When I get a tank, I'm going to have to run new plumbing. Are there any diagrams or reading material that is geared to the beginner? As always, your help is greatly appreciated. Michael
