Thanks for the quick response. I will definitely check those out. I was actually looking at the Zoomed today at my LFS. Does the 501 run pretty quiet, do you have any issues with it?

Haha, I mean after it is drained. Tropica moves aquariums to Expos and they do not rip the scapes down. I would use a lubricant for the bottom edges of the tank, if need be and maybe some shims to...

How to properly move an established aquarium?

I need to move my 40 breeder scape to a new house. Luckily I don't have very many rocks or substrate in the scape and it's a small tank. Considering its size can I use some kind of manual lift? And a...

What PAR reading is determined as "high lighting"? I've heard from 50+ to 60+?
I would consider 50 or 60 as lower end high lighting in my experience.
What is the consensus nowadays because I know...
