Hah! Funny you linked to this. I work at a vet hospital and I had just gone to the back to get an IV set that has a drip valve on it for IVs. I think it will be perfect and works exactly like the acclimator. The only thing it lacks is the nice plastic "hook" to the side of the tank. I'll rig something up though. Thanks!

Austinsdad, that thing is pretty cool. I assume, you pull the syringe to start the siphon and measure drips/sec that way? BTW, how many drips.sec do you do? I do about 7, I think I read that on saltwaterfish.com.

I have a 250 watt heater just laying around that I can use. I know this is overkill but it won't do any harm in the 10g right?

It might be, put it in and check the temp at different time of the day.

Is it possible to use your sump for quarantine? I have a 38g sump that has a 10g middle section that could be used. It is meant to be a refugium eventually but haven't done that yet. Can diseases be spread from the sump to fish in the display tank?

Yep.

I do about maybe 2-3. No reason, it just felt right.

I consider the sump/main the same "system". If one gets infected, so might the other. Unless you possibly use a UV sterilizer (but I wouldn't guarantee this).
