    Hi all

    Post by DaveM100 on Wed Jun 18, 2014 11:52 pm

    My names Dave. I'm new to the hobby for the most part, I had a 200g tank about 25 years ago with a canister filter lol, that was a nightmare, seems like things have come along ways. I now have a 100g rimless from cad lights, (30g sump, and a 20g fuge in the garage) that's just about finished cycling. I do have 1 fish in the tank, a shanny fish that came in with my sand, he's doing really well, plus numerous stowaways that came on the rock. I'm running 2 mp40's, an eshopps psk 150 skimmer, tunze ato, apex, 2 kessil a360w, and a Eco 1056 for my return (came with the tank, lol it's not silent like it says Smile ). And I can use all the help I can get lol!

    Welcome back to the madness. Been doing this for a while myself and seen things change a lot over the years.

    Ask away with your questions. Lots of good helpful knowledgeable people around here. You can't learn if you don't ask. Wink

    Been awhile since I've posted but family had to come first more than usual for awhile lol. Looking for some help, I'm having a lot of trouble maintaining a constant flow through my system. Was wondering if any of you guys with more experience would mind stopping by and checking things out. I'm at the end of my rope lol, very frustrating.
