    Hello! I'm vaguely considering using a waterfall in a project I have wanted to try for a while. I'm not sure yet, though, so I wanted to do some research. I know this information is in other threads, but I want to make sure I get information specific to what I'm going to try to do. What I'm...

    I'm just about to embark on building my first viv (probably for Darts). I've gone for an Exo Terra 60x45x90.

    MistKing Vs. Monsoon Pump Comparison

    A quick photo comparing the Monsoon's undersized & impractical pump, to the smallest (Starter) MistKing pump. The yellow circles highlight the plastic collars that tend to fail on the Monsoon which leads to water being sprayed over the electrical components. MistKing is leagues ahead of the Mo

    I thought a Repti Flo 100 would pump water up about 12 inches and be sufficient to supply a drip line, since it supposed to run an 8" waterfall, but it's not - any recommendations on decent, reliable pumps? I'm constructing a new 45g and want to mkae sure my pump will run. :) Thanks :)
