This is a thread where you list all the equipment you have used on your reef that have been very successful and reliable. If it worked well and you would recommend it, post it. I don't want to hear any "well this pump wasn't good" or "this skimmer broke" or any of that. Only posotive things. Anything besides livestock. Post away and lets get a good list of reliable products to help other beginner reefers and any other reefers looking to buy new equipment. =]

Also all other saltwater tank equipment can be listed here. Not just equipment used on reefs.

My reef is my expression... its a mixed bag of a bit of everthing with no clear theme all including mood swings, many odd quirks, nooks, crannies, and the best part: growth

very true... mine works wonderfully on my 20 gallon reef. I've also heard the aqua-c remora skimmers work well too

I posted a link to here in general salt so it could get more exposure...

The koralia pumps work well... Im gonna try them out with a wavemaker to see how they perform with that... then I'll post back here with the results :D

Digital Aquatics Reefkeeper controllers are really really nice... set and forget. Your tank is completely controlled and you don't have to worry. I would give it 5 stars and recommend it to anyone who wants a controller. It is worth the money!

The koralias didn't work so well with the wavemaker. maybe with a koralia wavemaker they would be better but they don't start every time on my controller's wavemaker

The remora skimmers are hard to adjust right. They are very finicky and I couldn't get mine dialed in. Im gonna stick with bak pak skimmers
