    sweet deals... if u need any help with it i'm coming hom around the 18th...

    i would say liek a mag12 would be nice, they go inline and submersible i believe

    instead of getting tunzes why not try those MJ mods? i think that would be pretty sweet!

    Hey Will,

    I thought about a mag but alot of people dont like them due to the heat.I was thinking about the MJ mods also.THey are nice and small.I dont know if I have the time to modify them.
    Im having a coral sale if your interested.Im keeping some peices that I have had since I set it up.Most are going to be around $30-$40.I have brains,bubbles,frog,fox,torch,etc.

    Thanks.If I need some help I will give you a shout.Stop by when you get home.I have some things that you might want.

    ur in the basement, i don't think heats gonna be too big an issue is it? if it is just don't put a heater in

    also, if u don't have time to do the mods, just check out mjmods.com they have pre-made kits, u can jsut assemble them.

    "I" don't need any corals right now hyeah:

    heat.. on a 400g... in a basement.. naa.. nothing to be worried about. its the other way around.. how many heaters will it take to heat it up
    i'm going to use two mag12 for my return and possibly a few more here and there.. it will just cut down on the heating. I like the mag pumps because they are dead quiet.
