Equipment : Why you should check your pumps regularly...

Great topic!
I have actually been playing with the idea of adding a flow sensor to my return pump line so that I can visually see on my controller graphs when my return needs to be cleaned or is having problems. I do clean the pump every 6 months or when I notice that the flow seems to be lower. 
I am in the same boat as Mark on this one and observe my tank and when I notice that things are out of whack fix them - but sometimes life gets busy and you don't notice until it is too late, which is why I am looking into flow sensors.

Aquarium Related Classifieds : LF Clean-up crew - red slime algae eaters

Rusty's Reefs is the newest LFS in the valley and it is conveniently located directly across the street from a former LFS, The Aquarium. Rusty is a great guy. The address: 9171 S. 700 E. Sandy
My motto for effective algae control is "Snails, Snails and more Snails" The population usually needs to be replenished every 3-6 months because of mortality. Luckily there are Stomatella Snails that reproduce naturally in most reef aquariums. Unfortunately, we usually like our tanks to be so clean of algae that we must have an overpopulation of Snails. Some Snails end up too hungry and they easily die.
Copied here is the Reefkeeping Tip where we discussed almost all the options for controlling red slime:Red Slime/Cyanobacteria of many colors, how to eradicate it:http://www.utahreefs.com/forum/forum_posts.asp?TID=37106http://utahreefs.com/forum/forum_posts.asp?TID=80420
The second of those threads speaks of Dr. Tim's Waste Away. It is a natural solution of crud eating bacteria that seems to clear up not only Cyano but a lot of old aquarium waste. I use it and heartily recommend it.
The Reefkeeping Tips (see below) is a place where hundreds of local hobbyists have shared their knowledge and given good tips regarding all kinds of marine aquarium issues. Check it out. 
Aloha,Mark

Equipment : Dart pump crazy loud

Cool. Evidently, too much air was the cause of the cavitation? Since the pump was just repaired it makes me think perhaps, it's been a long time since the pump had that much power.  With all that power, it may have been forming very low pressure expanded air bubbles that collapsed upon leaving the pump.
Cavitation typically occurs only with strong pumps. If the pump intake is restricted the powerful spinning impeller forms extreme low pressure on the intake side. I have seen where cavitation actually creates such low pressure that water molecules are pulled apart, forming steam and giving off heat in the plumbing. Almost immediately upon passing out of the volute (cavity where the impeller spins) into the return line the steam bubbles collapse. This rapid expansion and immediate collapse causes loud vibration in the pump and plumbing.
This is also why flow control valves are installed on the output side and not the intake side. 
Aloha,Mark

Swollen impellers on small pumps, and corroded magnets on stream style magnets come to my mind.
Also, cleaning off intake screens.

Right now, it appears to be cavitation. Turning down the air inlet has solved the issue (so it seems).

Thanks all!

He mentions it here - its a decent watch.

Many of the "leading" reefers are choosing to no longer chase low nutrients, or even test for that matter.  I am testing this approach out, cautiously.  




I watched that video like 5 times haha

Careful with those phosphates... anything above 1, I start seeing my acros suffer. When they're above 2, I usually start seeing fish get sick. Have you tried things like seachem fuel or brightwell supplements instead of throwing in the n03 stuffs? Be sure you're not accumulating too much detritus around in the sump, if you do, you may eventually start seeing negatives like your phosphate and nitrates go tooooo high.
You're light is probably fine but what bulbs are you running in it?
Tileman, don't change a thing!!!!!! lol

Anything about 0.10ppm or 0.01ppm? I have used Seachem Fuel before. I am adding amino acids and trace elements in other ways. What is too high, regarding nitrates and phosphates in your opinion?
