Here's a new webpage (soon to be added to the Hidden Treasure page) about how to install a new (or replacement) sump under an existing reef tank. Plumbing is explained as well, and I hope it proves useful to you.
Install a new sump under your tank.

I finally got my new light suspended over the prop section of my sump last night. I wanted a small light that would fit nicely, not use tons of power, and be moveable. As people would come visit, I'd explain what I was wanting, and finally someone suggested I get a rolling drawer track. Bingo! :D

I took the time to dose my tank with Prodibio tonight. Cleaned the sump up a little, cleaned the skimmer, and stirred up the refugium a tad to get some detritus into the water and get the macro algae semi-rinsed. Here's my new (revised) dosing schedule.

I created a new page showing how the Acropora valida has been growing over time.

Many of you enjoy my site for the latest information about my livestock and various ideas. Last year I participated in a book project, and am a co-author for Reefkeeping Basics. This is an e-book, one you'd download to read on your computer as you have the time. There are a total of 14 authors that participated, and each one was interviewed with the same questions, which allows you to compare the comments and learn from all of the combined knowledge. So if you'd like to purchase the book, click on the banner below:

I took apart my Pico tank tonight to siphon out all the detritus. My seahorses are in a hospital tank, so all it contained was rocks, zoos, a dendrophyllia and a cleaner shrimp. I pulled everything out and picked off any fat bristleworms, as well as any razor caulerpa that continues to spread and annoy me. (Larger bristleworms are not good for seahorses, I've been told.)

Evan and I are currently working on a reef keeping podcast. Simply, it is a pre-recorded internet 'radio' show. Each podcast is saved as an .mp3 file, which you can play from your computer, your ipod or other mp3 player, or even from some cellphones that can receive files from itunes.com
The site is www.reefcast.com
