    I'm guessing you saw that ~$250 Dr. F&S fuge with the built in skimmer/light?

    Yes, I looked at that one, and some knock-offs on ebay. Then I looked into setting up a below tank fuge...but the overflow boxes can get really expensive, and then you have to set up the baffles in the fuge, so that route is probably just as expensive.

    The cheapest route definatley seemed to be the AC.

    BTW, I am in the process of getting a custom made all-in-one to replace my 10g, so I will be scrapping my HOB fuge. Good thing I didn't buy anything more expensive!

    I remember seeing that thread a while back. Just to let you know, I am still jealous, lol.


    Do you have any detailed pics of your AC fuge? Its a 110 right?

    lol, thanks!

    Actually, I am using an AC30 because I had one lying around. If I were buying one, I would definitely go bigger. I would probably get the 70. What is nice about the 70, is that the impeller is interchangeable with the smaller AC's, so you could swap an AC20 impeller and slow down the flow in the fuge. If you use the AC110, you would need to shave down the impeller yourself in order to slow down the flow.

    I think the AC30 is working OK, but I would definitely like to be able to grow a bigger chaeto ball.

    I've seen that palm light in the Dr. F&S catalouge. Does it do a good job supporting your chaeto?



    Also, is that mesh just the media basket?

    The palm light I have is the smallest one, I think it is 5 watts. The chaeto is growing pretty well, but I am sure the next light up would be better. I just couldn't fit that light on top of the AC30.

    All I did was hack the "handles" off of the media basket, and use some Home Depot gutter guard to cover the outlet. If I was setting up a bigger AC, I would probably set up a baffle (with acrylic) and use a piece of the media basket to cover the outlet.
