  2. From my experience, stress/change in environment causes them to split, just like BTAs. And also, I've accidentally shredded one of my rhodactis one day when I tried to cut the rock, splitted it into 3 pieces. I've also torn some of them off frag-racks they got stuck to. Pretty much all of them grew back, quite hard to kill haha.

  3. Agreed, flooded my room a few times because of blockage in the pipes/loss of siphon from power outage. Now I know always to have emergency drain and keep the HOB overflow constantly primed. If you really want to have one and keep it small, go for Herbie (don't forget the emergency pipe), dursos can be quite noisy in my experience, and bean animal is too big. I've kept a mixed reef frag tank with large HOB filters haha, it's more important to have wavemaker flow imo.

  4. Looks like bacterial bloom bro, they sometimes make slime that will catch debris. I'm sure with some good husbandry, they'll be gone

  5. Hey thanks man for your response! There are actually "spider webs". I think i will scrape them off and do a water change over and over again. Kinda neglected water change due to other commitments.

  6. Most overflows can easily handle a small tank. My concern if any would be with a HOB you carry the greatest risk of major catastrophic failure. If for any reason the siphon breaks then you will end up with an overflow (as the sump continues to pump all the water into the tank). Further any auxiliary items like chiller will also shut down / damage due to lack of water. Thus, this maybe something you would want to reconsider... Sent from Singapore Reef Club mobile app

  7. Do take note a bean animal style overflow can take up a significant space due to the number of pipes used. Therefore for a 20G aquarium, it may or may not be practical. Is your aquarium pre-drilled? Or are you going to make one?

  8. Overflows act as barrier reducing risk of pipe blockage and (assuming is an external overflow) typically allow for easier access to plumbing. Disadvantages (few)... added cost, tank needs drilling. Regarding size.... well that depends on two factors. One is the amount of water needed. So a 20g would need just 450L/Hr of flow for 5x turnover. Which could be handled by as little as 12mm pipe (Although best to size up to 16mm). The second factor is the type of overflow you plan to use; Durso, Herbie or Bean Animal? Bean Animal is possibly the most popular as it is regarded the safest and th

  10. This could be a 'white sponge'. (As I cant see any 'spiderwebs' on your photos but rather a blanket of grey white), hopefully other reefers can confirm this. Most sponges are harmless, but need to be kept in check. To treat use hydrogen peroxide or hot water. I don't recommend you try and remove manually by brushing or scraping as it will spread. Problem with sponges is if you treat they can rot in the tank so suck out the water and flesh around the area you are treating. Also be prepared and have plenty of salt water available to replace displaced water and for subsequent water changes.

  12. Wow that’s a huge level of consumption. What size system do you have ? Has implementing the second skimmer to serve as a form of gas exchange increased the pH at the same level of a CO2 scrubber? Thanks again for the wonderful input [emoji106] I shall dive deeper and seek alternatives before implementing the CO2 scrubber! Sent from Singapore Reef Club mobile app

  13. If you have problem with PH first you need to check if the water in your tank is fully aerated. If the co2 in the surrounding air is high then even if your tank water is at equilibrium with the air outside, the levels of carbonic acid in the water will be high, which means more fre H+ leading to highe PH. This is rare in Singapore (unlike colder countries) we keep our windows open so the co2 levels in the air in your home should already be low (o.04 percent) almost. In this case if you scrub the co2 using media this will bring down carbonic acid in the tank but the effects maybe only temporar
