    Any tips to quiet it down? I may not be able to run one of these if they are this noisy since its in my living room. The screen sits about 1/4" under the water but the flow coming out in streams...

    Thanks, I made it 4.5" wide and 9" tall half inch goes into the pipe and if I measured correctly 1/2" should sit in the water. It's currently running in a bucket of RO water. And seems to work well...
  11. Please check my math and logic for a first scrubber build.

    I have a 75 gallon display with a 40b sump. It is a new mixed reef recently cycled with about 60 lbs of dry rock and 10 pounds of live rock. Right now only a few softies and a clown and chromi. I...
