I believe Rusty's Reefs has the best prices on Snails, Hermits and Emerald Crabs. Unfortunately, this means they sell out fast!Also, those animals are typically healthy because Rusty puts them in his regular tanks to eat algae. This way, when we bring them home, they are not still starving to death due to the long transport from the ocean and the sterile condition of a small holding tank.

General Discussion : Sump manifold question.

Others will come along with their ideas but here is my 2 cents worth of advice.
FYI, fittings (tees, elbows, valves, etc.) cause drag. Even full open ball valves cause drag and can be critical places where, over months and years, organic crud will grow, causing flow obstruction.
One Gate or Ball Valve above the Return Pump is all I use to control the flow returning to the display. Before that valve is one main branch leading to all other filtration equipment. Before or after each piece of equipment is it's own small valve to control flow to that piece. 
Often there is no branching at all off of the Return Pump. Branching off to other plumbing connections can and does lead to failure and flooding. Instead, small pumps are situated in the Sump to send water to each piece of equipment. Often that equipment is situated in the sump to avoid problem leaks and/or flooding. While I'm on the subject, situating the entire Sump in a water proof "pan" is a really good idea to prevent all kinds of leak and flooding problems. The branched equipment I'm speaking of does not include a Skimmer, if used, because the skimmer needs its own specialized pump to create a good froth.
These two optional setups result in minimal drag/maximum power on the main flow.
Of course there is another option. I realize that a manifold looks cool but there are reef aquarium setups that do not use these pieces of equipment. I have found over the years that there are simpler ways to set up a reef aquarium and accomplish the job without any extra equipment, including NO Skimmer.  The KISS principle is my motto. See below for an explanation.
Feel free to ask here in the forum or by text/call to 808-345-1049, if you want to discuss the options I have used for over 20 years of hobby and professional reefkeeping.
Aloha,Mark  808-345-1049 text/call for immediate help or just to discuss reefkeeping
P.S.My advice may not be what you thought you were looking for but in the long run, I know it will help you have a better reefkeeping experience and a less troublesome, more enjoyable one. 



Keep it simple, stupidKISS is an acronym for "Keep it simple, stupid" as a design principle noted by the U.S. Navy in 1960. The KISS principle states that most systems work best if they are kept simple rather than made complicated; therefore simplicity should be a key goal in design and unnecessary complexity should be avoided.KISS principle - Wikipediahttps://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/KISS_principle

Hey! I was wondering if anyone had an AI Prime unit or something comparable that they would be willing to sell me (hopefully around $100 or so). I had a guy that i was going to get one from tomorrow for 125, but he sold it. Just wanted to check and see before I fork out the big bucks for a new one.
Thanks!

So on my new tank I built a manifold with 4 ball valves, one for my uv, one for bio reactor, and 2 extra just in case. I did not put a ball valve after the reactor and I wonder if it would be a better idea to add a ball valve so I can reduce flow to the tank, and add flow to my bio reactor since my bio pellets are not moving around as much as they need to with the way it is setup. Any advice is great thanks.

A team of Chilean researchers revealed the first images of what may be at least six new reef-dwelling species.

Also for you Netflix users… I would recommend watching “Chasing Corals”. It is a great/eye-opening documentary about coral reef bleaching.

Very nice tank!!!! Wish we could upgrade to it but probably couldn't get it in our house:-). The stand for the 210 was pushing it.

I'm open to selling my system as a whole package.  If you're interested in something you see here, shoot me a text. I do have brand new Radion Gen 4 Pros.  Here is a link to my thread, so take a look at the last few pages.
