    DOOOP! Yep.

    When you flush the toilet, you displace the entire bowl several times, am I right? I guess it all depends, these days people are learning of better ways to filter water, if your using low micron socks, & vacuuming regular along with other methods of waste removal, then in essence your replacing water & elements right? Then maybe in this case smaller changes are more than fine, not to long ago, these practices weren't being done by most newer members of reefing. I think this may be another good topic to hit up on.

    Scott,
    sad fact of the matter is, I wasnt heeding my own advice.....
    I got busy and didnt make time for tank maintenance. It didnt help things that my tank was configured in such a way as to make maintenance difficult at best.
    The new set up is definately being designed w/ ease of maintenance in mind.

    Of course I say that now.....we'll see how well I planned things out in a few months.

    Maxx I would love to post some pics and someday I well, but I don't have a digital camera yet, and the other thing is I would have to learn how to post them and when it comes to computers I'm as dumb as a piece of live rock, LOL.
