To each there own basically. I was yard selling yesterday with one of my buddies an I was selling a couple of tanks an everything some body would even glance at it she would go "Go, be free you little fish nerd. Go an Sell them the tanks" 🐟 needless to say I'm still on the hunt about finding somebody to talk fish to

what do you guys think about a 30gallon refugium? just straight up for Pod culturing that has a low flow powerhead pumping water to my main return pump. the thing that worries me the most is that I just updated my 3/4 inch pvc overflow to 1 inch. so now I'm using the 3/4 as a secondary overflow to the 30 gal refugium. do you think it'll work? or will I run into some weird issues running 2 different size overflows?The 1 inch pvc leads to my trickle tower. which honestly I may take apart and just turn everything into a huge sump with fuge.

As long as the overflow doesn't loose "syphon" then the pump determines the flow rate of sump.I run a large reef octopus HOB on my 29 slow reef with just a mag 3 for return.
Plenty of pods!I like your idea!


Kind of hoping we were going to talk about Brooksters ex girlfriends!
I'm hip to fish also I guess!

I've been off this forum for probably close to a year but it's good to be back. Last night, I was at a family dinner and I got the news that I'll be helping to set up two tanks. One will be a 5 gallon planted tank for my cousin while the other will be a 10 gallon guppy tank for two little girls.

I'm sorry, I had no idea that you had that setup. I went and looked at pictures of yours, and your tank was so much better than the one I saw the other day.

No one wants to talk about fish...

Just for clarification, I was not talking about anyone on AA.

Hubby and I got into it together, and a mutual friend of ours has a tank, and hubbys cousin used to have fish, and when I post things about our fish on Facebook, people seem supportive.

But I don't really talk with people about it too much, except my closest friends, and they don't seem to get bored with it

I try to talk to people at work about it and they seem interested but the convo doesn't usually go very far. I love talking about our fish & shrimp!
