rec.aquaria.marine.reefs by attaching all those photos.
And they are pathetic photos at that.

Well, guys, the tank is for up for sale now, anybody live near vista/san
diego california or close enough to drive come take a look.
60 gal reef tank, 6 years established. about 100lb live rock, 30lbs marine
sand, 20lbs aragonite in 6 gal refugium sump, 4x40w no’s, 2 fish, many live
rock, unfinished stand
email for photos. this tank was converted to salt about 10 years ago, was
converted to a reef about 6 years ago. I have practiced building a self
sustaining eco-system. This tank is mostly self sufficient. minimal water
changes needed, balance has been struck. a multitude of self grown tube
worms, mushroom, many small reef natural born starfish and snails, tank
filters it self, no filters, just 6 gal sump and refugium. sump uses a
hanging siphon-wier overflow box. the pinewood stand is a year old, and is
extremely sturdy and has room for all equipment below.
Well I suppose if you give me $20 I could haul it away for ya

A few months back several of you replied to a post I made asking for skimmer
recommendations, and the majority recommended ASM, Aqua C, or Euro Reef. All
these appear to be in-sump designs. Because I bought a wet-dry system (which
will now only be used as a sump) when I bought the tank, I don’t believe I
will have the space to use an in-sump skimmer. I’m pretty sure I will be
forced to use an external skimmer. Therefore:
What brands can anyone recommend for external use?
Does anyone have any knowledge or experience with skimmers from
http://www.myreefcreations.com They have been recommended to me, but they
use something called a Beckett Injector instead of a needle wheel, and I
can’t find any information on this technology.
Can anyone give me some help? I’m not going to quibble about the cost, since
this is such an important piece of the system…I just want something that
works well that is an external design.
BTW…why are the in-sump designs so popular? Are there certain advantages
Thanks and Merry Christmas!

I’d have to say if you need a hob for the price Aqua C is the only choice
I’ve had one for about 5yrs now and my only real complaint is the
poor design of the overflow box. The upside is no real tweaking, adjust
the cup and keep the powerhead clean, once in a blue moon run the
brush through the injector and thats about it.
