  4. Tips on Solana setup please

    I think Tunze also makes some small skimmers that are popular with the solana. Check that out. Also, it was either reef central or nano reefs forum that had huge solana thread going. I used to go there a lot for info.
  5. Tips on Solana setup please

    When I had a solana I ran a sapphire aquatics skimmer. That thing ROCKED for it size and was very quiet. I'll second the advice to ditch the ATO bottles and run a proper switch with a remote ATO reservoir. I use the same switch as Grassi with no problems at all.

    Not the same tank I brought through the window. I had this one build to fit through the door just barely. Chiller still available!!!!

  8. Tank and Equipment sale

    Tank, skimmer and sump sold. Still have the chiller, pump, and Icecap ballast. I'll likely be adding a few small things in the next few days as I clean out.
  9. Tank and Equipment sale

    I have too many other hobbies that I enjoy way more. Every time I have to spend money on the tank I think it could be going towards other passions. I might set up a cold water pico tank though, we'll see.

    stock it up. As long as you don't fill the tank in a weeks time you will be fine. Just keep an eye on things.

    I'm glad we live close, so I can come awe over your tank when its set up.
  13. a plywood reef tank?

    I did some research on plywood tanks and by the time its all said and done, it cost about the same as an acrylic tank.
  14. Solana advice needed

    I had a solana stocked FULL of sps. I only kept a few fish and did a weekly 5g water change. I had plenty of flow with an mp10 and I had a sapphire aquatics solana skimmer that was a beast for it's size. I ditched the stock ATO and put a float switch in the last chamber and had a 10g container underneath that I used for top off water.
  15. Thanks for doing this! I'm sure it will help out a lot of us.
