carey, if you are wainting a clean sand bed, you only need to wait until the diatom bloom is over and with proper flow, you'll have a pure white sand bed. you don't need anything that sifts/shifts the sand.

that skimmer looks kinda small for a 150 gallon total volume system. what model is that?

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

The head is listed at 1596 for 1 foot I believe. It only seems to go down a few dozen per foot if you look at the chart. I've heard good and bad about putting a ball valve on which I already bought.
