Hi all, I'm beginning the process to upgrading my 55 to a 120, and here's where I'm at. In a week or two I'll be buying some second hand equipment from another RC member who's selling his 120. My...

If they multiply too quickly, they can become a nuisance in your tank. I'd find something to eat them (like jedimike said), or start picking them out.

+1. This can be avoided by watching your inhabitants eat, and feeding accordingly. It may be a bit more time consuming than the usual feeding, but will pay dividends in the end. :)

Is your tank glass? (I'm assuming so). Nonetheless, check the craigslist listings and sellers forums. Your sump and refuge don't need to be anything extravagant; rubbermaid is for more than food and...

Change them, keep the old ones. When your new ones hit life expectancy, swap them out until you buy new ones. As far as the mix, I don't know. I know the 10k and actinic mix is common, but the dual...

I just had a flame angel eaten completely by my BTA. Things are probably grim; it might have served better as a meal for the GBTA than it would have as a WIA fish you've got to worry about now. I...

That looks about right for overflow, maybe a stronger return could serve you well? How big is your overflow?

If I don't end up ordering this new tank with custom overflow, I'm going to drain my...

Vinnie, check out the sellers forum here on RC and your local craigslist. You'll be able to reduce your spending exponentially. I don't see why you wouldn't be able to get A and B.

depending on surface flow, yes. If you've got a lot of surface disruption, it will get "stirred" back into the water; if you haven't much, you'll be able to see protein build up. I have a koralia...

It absolutely will be; it will remove the protein buildup and let it get down to the sump and skimmer.

If you move the overflow box up, it should move up the overall level of your tank. It sounds to me like you need to use some sort of valve to control your return; your water level should never be...

What kind of flow do you have, and try to cut back on the feeding; for fish, a mouthful of food a day is enough.

Yes and no. Yes, because if it wasn't dumping the foam in the cup, it wasn't removing the waste that increases phosphates/nitrates. No, because the water being pumped through the skimmer should have...

Great writeup, genius design :) Could you post some pics? I'd like to replicate, and probably on the same scale as yours.

Add it slowly; rinse it before putting in there and you'll be fine; do a 30lb bag every week or two, until you get to the depth you want. Monitor your levels, if your tank handles the new sand well...
