    Actually a very easy tank to care for. Live sand so you never touch the bottom.

    Pondguy, I stay with mostly easy Softies. My customers think they look great and do not want to spend the extra for the extra lighting(and extra equipment) needed to keep stonies or clams. Ray

    If you had read the post you would have seen I clearly stated that you can see there are different ways to do a tank. The actual quote " As you can see there are different ways and approaches to running tanks. " I was not picking your method apart, just showing as state the differences. Ray

    Kylem, "If you get a chiller and don't have AC you will have a simmiliar problem...unless you put the chiller outside. " Not true. It may work a little harder, but if it is the proper size it will keep you water temperature down without being outside. Ray

    Sand???

    First that is not cyno. It is a brown algae that most new tanks go thru. It is not harmful in my opinion. As your tank matures, and you do proper water changes it will decrease or even go away. Ray

    Temp Help

    One thing I never see mentioned. Just open the hood all the way. We only have heat waves for short periods usually. Leave the hood open in the afternoon on hot days can lower the water temp a few degrees if the room temp is not already in the 80'S Ray

    Colleen, I have two tanks sitting on the poach. Both are glass. I think they are a 40 and a 45 gallon. Just tanks. But you are welcome to one for Shilo if you can arange a time to come pick it up. Neither leaked before there were set out there in March. Ray

    should i have a sump ?

    Neil, I like close loops and use them often. I like keeping things simple. The less equipment that can be used, the lower the cost and less things that can go wrong. Just my opinion. Ray

    should i have a sump ?

    I've had calls from people for help for Flooded floors, burned up water pumps( sump ran low) and one for flames coming out of the stand (They let the sump run low, the water pump over heated and literally caught the wood stand on fire - luckerly some one was in the office). Now I understand they...

    should i have a sump ?

    Just so you have another point of view. And as most know I march to a different drummer. I no longer set up tanks with sumps. I find it an unnessary expense and trouble waiting to happen. Ray
