Hi! This is probably going to be a weird question, but I bought all the parts I was told I needed for a reef tank. I have had the set up for over a year and a half...and everything is fine...but I honestly don't know the names of the parts.
I know I have a protein skimmer in a sump. the tank has what I think is called an overflow box where water is sucked in where there is a sponge.
My husband and I put all the tubes and stuff together, my water tests fine, I have beautiful corraline algae on all my rock etc etc, but as I say, I am clueless to the 'mechanics' of it all and get lost when reading about hardware and such. I also want to be sure I have things set up properly so things are running as efficiently as they are supposed to.
I am trying to locate other folks in the VA/DC
area so that maybe a 'pro' can come look to see if it's all done correctly.
As I say, it all seems fine, but just want to be sure.
We bought everything as a packaged 'reef ready' tank.
Thanks for any comments!
