Without having your own test kits its gonna be hard to dose the ammonia though

Well if she allows the 26 she will let you go bigger lol. My wife was against mine now she loves it as much as me

And as for getting rid of her... umm... There are some things that the aquarium won't do for you lol

Yeah I bought my setup used for $150 bucks but most of the equipment was messed up. I saved one if the circulation pumps and the company that manufactured the heater replaced it for free. Everything else I bought new. It isn't cheap but go slow and its affordable

As for test kits I ordered from drsfostersmith for $20 all the lfs around me wanted $30-35 plus tax and on that site if you order over $49 it was free shipping

There is another site I think its bulkreefsupply

What is the gph rating on it?


I looked it up it is 400

I would invest in a circulation pump. I like the hydor ones they use magnets instead of suction cups to mount.

I use 2 circulation pumps I have a hydor rated at 550gph and a maxi jet rated at 500

The maxi jets are cool to you can set them up as a circulation pump, power head or utility pump and they are low priced
