Please excuse my ignorance but what is the purpose of a sump in an aquarium ? You know that tank bellow the tank. Is it to facilitate attachment of multiple devices like protein skimmers UV sterilizers and calcium reactors Ect. , or what ? Thanks. Robert G Smith

water change % of what? by
So it is suggested to do a water change of about 20-25% every few weeks (3-4 weeks). Is this 25% of the tank? or 25% of water in the tank after evaporation? So I have a 50 gallon tank, is that a water change of 12.5 gallons? Or from the 40 gallons (after 10 gallons have evaporated) a 20% water...

Are we the last of a dying breed? by
I'll be the first one to admit that since getting back into the hobby I've spent more time on RC than any place else. It really is sad to see this usenet group dying since I spent many years here in the past and had met soo many great people and their knowledge was invaluable. I guess the world...
