Skimmers.. I looked at those but didn't order any yet cause I'm stuck. I'm confused as to which type and well just basically everything still. I almost understand the purpose though LOL. I'm still figuring out the variables and "secondary" purposes. venturi vs needle. spray vs pump. concurrent vs coconcurrent. u know the stuff I knew when I was a baby that I just filed away. still getting thru cobwebs LOL.
Just forget all the hype and buy the best name brand that'll fit your needs and your price range,...there's a bunch of good ones out there and I'm sure that anyone you get will be wonderful,.... Try to not think too much, you'll only get a headache

Fluval 405

Got home from work and I had a box outside. I believe it contains the Fluval 405. Haven't opened it yet. Got a few things to do before bed, the if I have time before work tonite, I'll be opening my goodies. I swear if I do it now, I won't go to bed and work will be really hard.

I've decided on:

AquaC Remora Pro Protein Skimmer with Rio 1400 Pump & Drain Fitting

Title says Rio 1400 pump but I'm going to get the Mag 3. I'm also going to get:

AquaC Surface Prefilter Box

I've a few things I gotta get done before I can order. But if anyone has any input on these items, please let me know.

Thanks

The mag 3 pumpis a good selection as it will be enough to use on your sump when you get it.

I love my remora, some people on the forum arent big fans but I never had an issue with it. I also have the skimmer box too, makes it so fishies cant swim into the pump and keeps the back nice and clean looking with the black box, theres no external pump that can be seen when you use it.

I was too tired from working all night and I haven't been to bed yet because I had to pay bills (Gonna be a rough night, maybe I can get a nap in at work tonite with my eyes open so I don't get caught lol). I keep proscrastinating because of my tank stuff. Seems I don't get much done except read read read for Saltwater stuff. LOL.

I just got back from running around but before I left, I opened up the packages.

The pumps are in their boxes on the table along with the Fluval 405. Well the light is on the table to..............not in its box lol.



But alas I'm still not gonna play. I'm going to get a bike ride in before I have to go to work. I so miss riding my bike. I'll be limping when I'm done but it's worth it. Not sure how far I'm gonna peddle today, don't really have enough time. Nor do I have the strength right now to do 30-50 like I used to before my surgery.

Soo on that note, if I can get the stuff together before work I will post pictures. Otherwise I'm going to be staying up when I get home tomorrow, 1 to work on my tank and 2 I gotta switch back over to dayshift.

Thanks for input Carey.

I hope to order the skimmer and refractometer today or tomorrow. Next is to get the QT together, unless I missed something it'd be stocking decisions. Then food, then livestock. Woohoo. Getting closer.

I'm starting to see the silver lining and the rainbows and the little light at the end of the tunnel has finally started to grow!!!!!

Decisions decisions.....I'd mess with the lights, easy to do. The filter will take you awhile to setup.

No time now lol. Was it AquaCave that you had the coupon for? They are the highest price for skimmer. 269.00 with pre-skimmer and mag 3 at Marine and Reef. How's that for a price?

Looks like I'll be trying to do it all in the morning after work. Hopefully I can get it pretty much done and post some pics
