Hey Sean, what size skim mate locker did you get? The medium has a 4.5" chamber. I'm thinking about picking up one of these and a swabbie.

Hey Trevor - I measured it and it’s a medium. Just so happened Terry had a used one on hand. Very nice and simple design.

That seems like a good size on a moderately stocked 120 I think. Of course a smaller footprint is nice, but I'd like to get a month or two between cleanings. How long are you thinking until you fill it up?

Hard to say for sure as I am still dialing in the new (for me) skimmer.  I tend to run it fairly dry though so I am thinking a few weeks anyway.

glad to hear it is on the uptick.

I do have a chunk of TDF for you that bert gave me.. but I have the sinking suspicion that it is red planet. My purple dragon or whatever it is called is also growing like a weed.

Way to get back on the horse again, sounds like it is all coming together for you this time around. And if you ever want another frag or two just let me know and I will snap something off for you my friend. Always something that needs trimming. At some point I would love to come by and check the system out when I make a Portland excursion.

And as far as the TDF, I sure hope it isn't a type of "Planet Acro". I got that Fuego from Jeff several years ago in his old shop during one of the deals he ran out of his SPS tank in the back right hand side of the store. My red planet always has a green skin and redish polyps to it but I have noticed under low light the TDF can get a green hue at the base too. Maybe I will frag a piece of each and throw them in the same system just for observation. I believe Cornbred has another variant he calls the Tormenta Del Fuego that I would love to see in person, without spending the massive cost of course.

Thanks guys!  It's hasn't been a perfect reboot but definitely looking better. Had an unexplained alk spike which caused some damage (had been stable for several weeks before that) but I think it's getting there.  You both have been a huge help in trying to stock - much appreciated.  I recall the pieces of TDF I had previously definitely had the green base color FWIW.  I think I had separate pieces from Kim (your TFT auction score Brian) and Holly and they did look subtly different in different parts of the tank.

Mine has a green base, it is growing LIKE CRAZY though. Probably 2" in 2-3 months.

Hey Taylor,

i have been quite happy with them still. Had good growth and color and have been working non-stop since I put the tank up. Picked them largely due to the form factor and led density. There weren’t a lot of good options to get coverage on a long narrow tank but these worked great. Had one bad display out of the box (didn’t show the correct on/off status for one channel) but got a replacement fairly quickly. Chose to install myself to save time and their support was very responsive and helpful. No problems since. I got my 32" SB Reef Light couple weeks or so ago and I love this light! My corals in this tank have never looked better (switched from two Reefstars) I absolutely love the moonlight, I never thought I'd even use it but the purple is amazing. It's great to hear from others like yourself that's liking them as well 😊
