    Bean and Animal is the way to go if you have the space. Just installed a DIY setup on my new build and done properly it will eliminate all of the sound. I have around 1100 GPH moving through my pipes and if you stick your ear next to the overflow you literally cant hear a sound. 


    Super easy to setup, however one thing I learned last week was not to buy a standard PVC ball valve. The ones you can buy at homedepot just dont have the adjustability range to properly dial in your siphon. In short when you adjust standard pvc valves theres no way your turning it less than 10 to 15 degrees at a time. Found a valve on amazon that was way more adjustable. That fine tuning is difference between a quiet overflow and a silent overflow.

    Should be a gate valve for best tuning. Ball valve should be for open/ close applications . Gate valve for adjustments

  2. If I’m not reefing I’m prolly bowling. Me and the wifey currently in the process of purchasing our own center. Bowling, pool, whisky/beer, reefing ,,,,,,   All in one place. That’s the goal, then it won’t seem like work. Lol. A nice tank in a bowling alley is gonna be cool I think.

    Hmm.  75lb capacity each so probably would want at least 4 of them for a combination of weight and hand holds yeah?  What does a red sea 650 peninsula weigh... seems like that is our new standard these days :D

    Prob best to be safe and get the 9 inch ones. Those have a 150 lb/ handle capacity

    No fruit loops, those are BBEB if we are talking about the same ones. I love fruit loops too but I’m not a fan of micro zoas lol!

    Ahhh it’s hard telling them apart for me. What’s ur opinion on these? Fruit loops or BBEB? Been in my tank for awhile but not sure which one

    Excellent choices!  If I didn’t already have one of the rainbows I would have been all over that - they are awesome. Those are particularly nice looking rastas as well.
