Okay, so here's the story of a Man Named Brady ... bringing up 2 very lovely fish tanks ...
We decided to dive into the art of Reef Tanks. We migrated our Freshwater fish from our 29 GAL
Acrylic to a 60 GAL
Glass to make room for our expansion.
We were out one day, and stopped in at a store, and picked up what they recommended to be on of the "best" in-sump skimmers on the market - a ViaAqua SK-200
. We dropped this in a $9 10 GAL
glass tank in the cabinet underneath. We've got a Penguin BIO-Wheel in the SUMP now, but that will be removed before we add Live Rock.
Now, here's where we may be making a mistake ... We have a RENA XP-1
pulling water out of the tank, filtering, and then dropping into the SUMP.
The SUMP has a 100 W heater, the in-sump skimmer, and a RIO 14HF
return pump with a ball-valve attached to regulate the flow.
Now, I don't know if the RENA filter has a ever-changing flow, that isn't constant or not, but we can't get the return to stabilize.
