You Loved The Last One, So I Cranked Out Another

Floods of people told me that my previous video about a peek inside the Tank Cruise Controlย guide was helpful so I had to make another…with a slight catch (hint…this video isn’t about the Cruise Control guide!)

  • Brian Davis says:

    Fantastic Mark! (:

    I love how you are continually thinking outside the box…or tank with your information! Thanks man! Really delightful to see and hear others positive results with your info! I know just how they feel (: See ya!


  • Jim says:

    Ok another video trying to sell stuff, suprise suprise. I am done with this website.m

  • Gordon says:

    Hey Mark,

    I really enjoy your videos–thanks for all the quick tips as well. No harm in making a living at something you enjoy (take note JIM. . .); I personally think you have a good balance as far as advertising vs. the helpful free information and ideas you give, so I hope you don’t give a second thought to the naysayers.

    Thanks again,

    Hey mark loving the videos, some of the equipment you mention isnt here in the uk but still the tips and stuff have saved me loads of money and corals ๐Ÿ™‚ just a quick question I don’t know if you have covered this in a previous video, I recently got an ecotech power head I was wondering why you have yours on the back of the tank and not the sides

    See you Friday for the morning tip ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Matt says:

    Brilliant! More free extras in the guides ๐Ÿ˜€ Can’t wait!

    As Gordon points out… Free info coupled with advertising is never a bad thing… Anyone who feels they should criticise a family man trying to pay his bills, enjoy his hobby AND give those of us in this wonderful hobby free information (and a good laugh now and then) should take a close look at what they’re doing and why!

    Wife Acceptance Factor… lmao … brilliant… and very true… I guess there’s a good few with the Husband Acceptance Factor out there to… Love to hear from you and how you get on… ๐Ÿ™‚

    One request Mark… You’ve been testing the difference in quality between the two types of ball valve for a while now… Wondered if you’d made any conclusions or is it to early in the game?

  • Daniel says:

    Restriction on ball valves is a really simple solution. One extra down pipe to act as a emergency only down pipe.

  • Daniel says:

    @ Jim.

    If Mark want to make money of his experiences and for the amount of time he has spent making himself a success, then that is his choice and one I would support. How many videos or blogs has he released for FREE ???

    Jim – nothing is free, not even freedom is free, so stop whining like a child and go to the kitchen and pour your self a nice warm glass of man the F up.

  • Mark H. says:

    Now I understand the valves on the drain lines…

  • bluzeeboy says:

    hell yeah Daniel some people just dont get it, that or they dont know how to control their jealousy. nice video Mark, and what was the product you were talking about at the end “tur scrubber”?

  • Ivo Seabra says:


    Mark was talking about the algae turf scribber its an alternative to protein skimmers.

    Mark the review of your sump will be out soon?

    Great tips And the wife thing priceless.

    Regards from Portugal

  • Tony says:

    Later Jim, let us know if you find something better!!! Haha, lol, cough,cough. Thanks Mark for your knowledge from your years of experience!

  • Ivo…I’m planning on having the sump review out mid August.

    I agree that the WAF is awesome. We can all relate!

  • DEAN says:


  • corocora says:

    This WAF works for me….Wife Avoidance Factor…also known as “Don’t tell her what she doesn’t need to know”

  • Ricky Rios says:

    Did you hear hanna is comming out with a WAF checker?.. lol

    Mark as far as the ATS goes. There are so many options, with some proven to work better than others, like red leds and now the Upflow scrubber.

    How did you make your mind on which one to review?

  • corocora…haha! Wife Advoidance Factor!

  • Ricky…there is a reefer close to me that has a scrubber so I went and profiled him and his tank.

  • Daniel says:

    We have a agreement in our house. Everything on my tank costs 50p (1$)

    So when she asks how much that bucket of salt costs and the 5 frags of monti I reply with “50p”

    When she has been out shopping and comes home with new shoes and dress’s I ask “how much was all that!” she simply replies “50p”… ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Matt says:

    Mwaaaa ha ha haaaa… ๐Ÿ˜€ Love it… brilliant… lol

  • BretBuckeye says:

    I’ve been working on ky build for close to a year now, and im just about ready to set it all up. Your information has been a huge help. Thanks

  • BretBuckeye says:

    I’ve been working on my build for close to a year now, and im just about ready to set it all up. Your information has been a huge help. Thanks

  • Thomas Ramsell says:

    My WAF factor is great, I take her to the fish shop every week (where i get my RO water for mixing) and she ends up sniffing out the deals while me and the owner talk about how big my next tank should be in my new house lol ๐Ÿ™‚

  • are a lucky man!!

  • Bret…glad to hear the information has helped. Feel free to post a picture of your build on my Facebook fan page

  • Rich says:

    Hi Mark
    There are so many more folks with less money thats why wal mart makes it Volume do the home work

  • Jason Reynolds says:

    Excellent video

  • Shawn Leaf says:

    Here’s a list of signs WAF is dropping and it’s time to get Mark’s algae guide…

    “What’s that green stuff?”
    “Why is the sand dirty?”

    and my personal favorite…

    “What’s that smell?”

  • Jason says:

    Are you going to sell the algae guide again?

  • Jason Reynolds says:

    Mark and I straightened everything out. He gave me the Nuisance Algae book and I have to say it surpassed my expectations which were pretty high to begin with.

    The Nuisance Algae book, and videos are INCREDIBLE!!!

    It is a bargain at $37.

    I can truly say that there is A LOT of value in the book. In all honesty it is one of the best reef books I’ve read… ever…

  • Jason Reynolds says:

    I want to be clear that I am not saying the comment preceding this because Mark gave me the book, to kiss his butt, or to make up for not being impressed with the Cruise Control book. I think I’ve shown that I am honest to the point of sticking my foot in my mouth. If I felt disappointed in the slightest I would say it.

    The Nuisance Algae book, and videos, really are THAT GOOD!!!

  • Matt says:

    Jason… I believe you… but then I’ve had the Algae Guide for a while now so I already knew… ๐Ÿ˜€

    Glad your pleased with it… Certainly changed a fair number of things I did with my tank! ๐Ÿ™‚
