    I'm currently putting a few new fish through QT in my Biocube 29. I have a super awesome harlequin tusk that is just awesome, a large flame angel and a midas blenny. All from Jeff. Everyone is doing great but the flame angel is just absolutely terrorizing the harlequin. I was letting it go in hopes that they would settle things and learn to coexist but the harlequin was just pacing nonstop and finally tonight wouldn't come down from a top corner. So that's not good. Then I raided my supplies bin and found an old net/eggcrate top that somehow magically fits at a perfect angle across the tank. So I toss it in and boom - both fish are just swimming around their respective halves. (The midas doesn't bother anyone and doesn't seem to be bothered at all). Harlequin has been down and swimming around much more normally. Angel is pissed off pacing trying to get at him. All good. BUT - I think I have to take the flame back and exchange for a new one. This one is just too mean. I can't put him in the 200...I'll never get him out. Anyway - problem solving is 99.9% of this hobby and i was proud of myself so I felt like sharing. Normally it's just something I did that's dumb.

    You know those community gardens they have in some cities where you get a plot and you can grow your veggies and they supply the land and the water? I want to do the same thing but with corals and fish. Have a huge warehouse full of frag tanks and lighting where people can come in and grow out their corals / breed fish and get together/trade/donate/further the hobby etc. Guess I better buy a powerball ticket

    As long as we're dreaming, what about probes that accurately measure alk, calcium, and mag? Then hook those up to a doser that would never fail. Sent from my SM-G928P using Tapatalk

    The focus of this weeks Spotlight is our sponsor Air Water and Ice, also known as the H2O Gurus. Clean water is their business and Business is good. Lets see if I can't get some good information out about this fine establishment to all the reefer folks here in need of a better source. Since 1982, Air Water & Ice has provided the most reliable, consistent and highest quality RODI units, Membranes & Filters in the industry. We specialize in custom RODI units! All of our units have a LIFETIME PARTS REPLACEMENT WARRANTY, 30 day money back guarantee & we price match anyone. We build and test every unit we sell the day you order - so you always get the freshest products and best performance for your application. Test our customer service! We offer after hours customer support through email. We are all about you making pure water for less money. You CAN pay more but you can't get LESS than ZERO TDS. From my own personal experience I have been a fan of Air,Water, And Ice for a few years now. I maintain aquariums for a living and I must say there are many variables on the plethora of RO units out there including maintenance and accessibility. One of my accounts uses a Air, Water, Ice unit for their home and it is easily serviceable, cartridges and membranes are always available, and if I needed it there is great specialized customer support. This prompted me to get my old unit replaced with my very own AWI Reefkeeper Typhoon RO system with a DI Bypass and a RO only valve. I do not foresee needing anything else for a Loooong time, either for the tank or for the family. A picture I love that not only showcases a number of the products such as sediment cartridges, carbon blocks, D.I. resins, and the whole water works but you can actually tell this butterfly is a staunch supporter and clearly approves...as do I. And as the photo implies if you visit the site there are tons and tons of parts and accessories for your water needs. Inline TDS meters, float valves, color coded tubing... RO storage tanks, push in fittings, DI resins... And even pumps, PSI gauges, and custom UV setups for intense sterilization needs. I don't know if there is anything else you would need for the water end of things. Here is how to get in Contact with the clean water specialists. We are open Monday to Friday from 9:00 AM to 4:00 PM Central Standard Time. ** E-Mail is best for inquiries. ** We review e-mails even when office is closed. Our e-mail address is sales@airwaterice.com. Please include your telephone number in your e-mail. Our telephone number is 772-461-0256. Feel free to leave a message if we are unable to answer.If you need assistance, have a question about a product, or you simply wish to make a comment please contact us. We would like to hear from you. And here are a few words from Cliff Donnelly, owner of Air, Water, and Ice. I watched my father maintain 4 salt water fish tanks as I grew up in the 1960's, so my enthusiasm for this hobby has been around for a long time. I graduated from Oklahoma State University in 1976 and then had a career as CFO for several large companies. I now enjoy being the owner of my own small business, Air, Water & Ice since 2007. Located in the heart of the Midwest we strive for excellent customer service and unmatched custom water filtration systems. Thank you for your continued loyalty and support, every customer matters to us at Air, Water & Ice. I thought it was humorous that the resident canine "Zues" was included on the website as part of their team. "Zues" I joined Air, Water & Ice in September of 2015. On a normal day, you'll find me taking a nice long nap. I really enjoy the clean water I receive from our Air, Water & Ice Water Cop system. If you stop by, don't forget to bring me a treat. A reminder that there is more to clean water than just our tanks, many of us consume a number of "unknowns" in our drinking water as do our other animal friends. So now you all know who to contact when the TDS creeps up and the water starts to turn bad...Air, Water, and Ice.

    Hmm, plywood huh? I mean, I've considered it, but I'm somewhat worried about longevity and just how thick the plywood needs to be. I don't want a goliath hunk of plywood just for a 1000 gallon tank. And I also hear you can't have a plywood tank with glass over 3 feet tall :/

    A round tank would indeed be best for sharks. What I am planning to get, however, are catsharks, that aren't free swimming, so I have heard it's actually OK to not have rounded corners as long as you place something at the corners so that they don't bump into them. A custom tankmaker is indeed a possibility, but I still wish to be rather frugal, so I might just watch around for glass panels and make the tank myself. I'm particularly looking around for starphire, though that's rather unlikely to just show up. I do want a big tank, but I am still quite frugal ;P

    Hey everyone! Being new here, I've come to put out some ideas, and I had one that I thought could be great. What if we found a place at the ocean: newport, astoria, seaside, etc. where we could farm mussels? "LadAShark, you're crazy! No one would let you run a farm, that would take too much space!" And here's where it gets good. Mussel farms are actually set up on ropes. So you get a long rope, seed it/let it get seeded by mussels, and throw it out into the water to let the mussels grow. So if we could find someplace we could rent, or if we knew someone who could let us set up these things, we'd actually be able to vary our fishes's diets by adding wild mussels. As for bacteria in mussels? Simply pasteurize them to feed your tanks. Heat to 63 degrees Celsius for 30 minutes, and then take them out and rapidly cool them. That will kill 99% of the bacteria in them, making for healthier food than, say, silversides. Your angels, puffers, wrasses, and basically every carnivoruous/omnivorous/detritivorous creature will love you! It would be great if we could get such a cooperative effort going, otherwise I'd just go once a month to collect 72-144 mussels and be done with it.

    Thanks guys! The floor supports are from home Depot, tiger brand. Each supports 10,000-18,000 lbs so just to be safe, I used 3 lol! Always good to play it safe. Sent from my SM-G925T using Tapatalk

    I could probably design one myself through one of those teeny computers or perhaps an old computer, and a combination of what I know from basic organic chemistry. It really shouldn't be that expensive, but it is for some reason :/

    I remember when I went crabbing on the docks in seaside, I believe, the sea lions (or were they seals, I don't remember) didn't seem to stop anything. I caught like 10 crabs in an hour and a half. Though I'm not sure if I can pull that off again. Hmm. All it would take is a single rope. I really don't know anyone there, so I'm not sure if anyone would let me do anything there. Wonder if like 10-50 dollars a month would let me do that? Hmm. It would be interesting to see how many people would be interested in setting up something like that over here. If so, we could perhaps rent a spot or soemthing and raise enough mussels for everyone's fish ;P Sharks aren't the only animals that enjoy mussles, so do pretty much every other carnivorous fish.

    You got my hopes up. I looked into it, mussels can even filter up to 80 gph. There's no way it can be maintained in a tank :/ What I CAN do is find someplace in Astoria/seaside/etc. And find someone who'll let me toss a huge rope over and leave it there forever. Then I can go there around once a month or so, collect some of the larger mussels and keep them at home (they can stay alive without food for MONTHS) to feed to the sharks. Wonder if I could get that set up? That would be pretty awesome, though I would somewhat worry about parasites and diseases.

    According to the book Marine Invertebrates by Ronald L.Shimek,"Many abnormal and deleterious conditions may also result in polyp extension." Some of the examples provided included; 1.) Polyp extension with no sighs of new growth and tissue recession might indicate a lack of food. 2.) Polyp extension with no sighs of new growth and intact tissues may indicate a lack of calcium. Are there any other times when good polyp extension is a bad sigh? *MARINE INVERTEBRATES 500+ Essential-to-know Aquarium Species.Written by Ronald L.Shimek PH.D. ©2004 T.F.H.Publications,Inc.One T.F.H.

    I was wondering if what i see in fusion should cause alarm one of my EB8 is running at 69 amps, but the good news is it doesn't take long before it drops to zero but then it jumps back to 20 40 60.....but again good news back to zero This actually gave me enough reason to go home between my appointments to see if my was on fire, the cord is melted or what Everything checked out okay I guess that's just a module to take off Fusion so I don't have to look at it How's that for a fix Love the hobby Sent from my SM-G920P using Tapatalk

    Great advice, it's the truth! That is a bummer though, I feel your pain. One nice thing going forward, you can do is get a backup from reeftronics in text format. This can be helpful if the backup cannot restore for some reason. For example, here is mine pulled from reeftronics.

    John, Our saltwater coming off the bay varies with the amounts of rain and runoff into the bay; however, the physical plant guys try to pump water into the reservoirs at the highest salinities levels. Typically, we maintain 32ppt, and within the tropical, marine aquariums the salinity may fluctuate between 28 and 32ppt. We do not have an ozone generator, PAR meter, or any other specialized equipment. Again, I've been concerned for some time about the quality of saltwater coming into the facility. Obviously, for the flow-through systems there are few problems. It's pretty amazing how just overnight any water remaining within the hose utilized for saltwater delivery goes anaerobic and we have a good amount of hydrogen sulfide build up. This is why we aerate our heated saltwater reservoirs. So, obviously we have plenty of living "stuff" coming in with the water, and this indeed may be the biggest challenge whether the stuff coming in survives or not the raise in temperature from around 48F to 78F. Cleaning up the water will be a big challenge too.
