    New palythoa

    It's something I wouldn't worry about *too* much, but just be extra careful: wear gloves/avoid reaching in the water with open wounds, be extra careful when siphoning, don't boil/bake rock from the tank, and wear eye protection/gloves when you frag it. Honestly, those are precautions we should...

    Silversides ?

    Can confirm. Nem spent six months derping around my 20g and got huge (~6-7" across). I tried to get it to move, it refused, and then split into four nems.

    Opinions on these Overflow Boxes

    With the M-size Eshopps, at least, I'd agree the stock versions can't be silenced. I was able to get it running silent by cutting off part of a slip fitting and adding a little bit of extra height to the trickle tube, though.

    Opinions on these Overflow Boxes

    Hi, Susan, Which options were you considering? I don't think they've shown up in your post. Personally, I liked the eShopps Eclipse series (or, if you wanted something a bit more colorful/a little more low-profile, the eShopps Prodigy). Came with everything I needed, including the guide, and...

    DIY UV sterilizer?

    Correct re: using the bulb with a pump instead of overflow. My main concern is that in my current setup, I put it in the overflow box naked, and have already seen some discoloration in the acrylic. My sump is also acrylic, and I'd rather get more water movement across the bulb. So, rather than...

    DIY UV sterilizer?

    I could, but I'm trying to plumb this into a sump rather than an AIO.

    DIY UV sterilizer?

    So, IM UV bulbs seem pretty cheap and are drop-in. Rather than spending a couple hundred bucks on a UV sterilizer, is there any reason I couldn't use UV-rated PVC (e.g., electrical conduit) that's wide enough to drop the UV light in, plumb in a couple barbs for hose attachments, and attach it to...
