    I was going to check in and see if Holly needed help bagging but I'm thinking security might be a higher priority.

    Just a quick note Jeff to thank you for actually checking and responding to the posts on your forum. It is definitely a bonus to have engaged and responsive sponsors so wanted to make sure you got a shout out for that.

    Thank you for your kind words! This ages me a bit, but I've been working in e-commerce since 2002. Forums/message boards have always been an important tool for communicating with the people who are most passionate about whatever it was I was marketing at the time ... computer parts/electronics, vitamins/supplements, and now aquarium products (I've been with MD for 10 years now and have had an absolute blast working here). So believe me when I say we are always listening and lurking. LOL Unless it's the weekend, you can generally expect a reply same-day from us or at the very least within 24 hours if it's a more complex issue that requires some research. In any case, it is a real honor to be a sponsor here and we look forward to many more interactions with PNWMAS members in the future. Have an awesome Friday, Jeff @ Marine Depot

    I got this from Randall when he took his tank down. He was selling it for next to nothing because it was in less than perfect shape, and had a section of skeleton exposed. It was eating from day one in the tank, but didn't seem to be growing back over the bare spot. I looked a little closer and found a few vermatid snails on the skeleton. Since breaking them off a month ago, it's making a pretty quick recovery. The new growth is right above the mouth at the bottom of the V.

    Thanks! I’m hoping all the fish poo is able to stay suspended with this rock structure [emoji4] Also finished up my ATO this evening. So here is the basics. I wanted to never ever have to fill up an ATO container or top off my tank. So I wanted the tank connected straight to my RODI unit. Yes, I know this is dangerous. But I’ve done it on my frag tank, and my dads 180 has been running like this for 10 years. Neither has ever had a problem. So I added as much redundancy as possible. A solenoid controls the flow of water into the tank. This solenoid is controlled by two float switches. One for low/normal level. And one high for an emergency back up. I’ll use the apex to only allow power to the solenoid/floats for about 25 minuets every day (depending on evaporation). And if all else, the water has to flow through a mechanical float valve. As I see it, there are four safety features to make sure the tank doesn’t over flow [emoji4] that is enough to let me sleep at night. Oh and I’ll also add a leak detector just in case to alarm me of an overflow. Anyway it’s hard to explain in text so here are a couple pics. Tomorrow the RODI unit gets hooked up and I start filling the tank! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    The new stuff from Innovative Marine is slowly making its way onto the site now. https://www.marinedepot.com/SnappGrid_Interlocking_EggCrate_AUQA_Gadget_Innovative_Marine_Frag_Racks_and_Frag_Plugs-Innovative_Marine-0I10658-FIMTCM-vi.html https://www.marinedepot.com/SnappGrid_Interlocking_EggCrate_Stackable_Risers_(16_Pack)_AUQA_Gadget_Innovative_Marine_Frag_Racks_and_Frag_Plugs-Innovative_Marine-0I10659-FIMTCM-vi.html We intended to put them up yesterday but we had some issues with our item updater tool ... so they should all be up within a matter of hours now. We aren't accepting pre-orders quite yet since we don't know how many we've been allocated. Once we do, we'll flip the switch to make them orderable. We ordered a ton since we know the EXT tanks are going to be a hot commodity. Jeff @ Marine Depot

    Are you ready for next level reef keeping? Do you want the best in security for your family and livesock? Let me ask you this.. how much is your piece of mind worth? Well, rest easy because you can grab one of these.. the ultralife relay float switch. This switch can pass through up to 8 amps of current and can be used for any number of applications. Just plug one end into the wall and your appliance into the other end and mount the float switch. Most use it for skimmers, return pumps, ATO etc. But you could use it to shut anything off in an emergency. https://www.marinedepot.com/Ultralife_Float_Switch_Auto_Top_Off_Units-Ultralife-UL1111-FIDPAT-vi.html?utm_source=mdcsegooglebase2&utm_medium=cse&utm_campaign=mdcsegooglebase2&utm_content=UL1111&gclid=Cj0KCQiAzrTUBRCnARIsAL0mqczoQYcdFZN2qf-Z0zpVn0VsAar6VKzH6uTAGWZvm2fI5PPvFtbQDlsaAsB8EALw_wcB They sell for around $70 which is pretty stupid. $30 cash.

    guys, guys ,guys, its not about making the plumbing look clean, its about wrecking your $160 jeans and carpeting. While I am sure a clear primer and glue combo could still wreck your clothing, you won't get the same DIY satisfaction that comes with going out to dinner with blue glue all over your hands. If they made a spill proof can of PVC... now that would be an improvement. Not that i have ever in my life spilled a whole can of pvc glue in my life. Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk

    Not sure if anyone noticed this or not but there was an announcement today regarding a new building planned for the Marine Studies Initiative center at the Hatfield location in Newport. Sounds like pretty exciting stuff so will be curious to hear more about the plans. http://www.oregonlive.com/education/index.ssf/2017/11/oregon_state_gives_first_glimp.html#incart_river_home

    i think that a shop vac with a floor water attachment would likely work better. The water bug isnt going to pick up anything shallower than about 3/4". We had one for awhile (we flood a lot of things) it is currently residing in the landfill. Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk

    So I am working on this reef room, in the planning stage. The room is in the back of a tandem garage. I was thinking about cutting a hole in the slab and adding a sump pump basin for a drain. There is some slope towards the front of the garage. However, the thought of cutting concrete (again, did allot of it in the basement), is not appealing. So I ran across the waterbug. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B018LRUDUU/ref=asc_df_B018LRUDUU5380389/?tag=hyprod-20&creative=394997&creativeASIN=B018LRUDUU&linkCode=df0&hvadid=198097979185&hvpos=1o1&hvnetw=g&hvrand=1143113920406932196&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvqmt=&hvdev=c&hvdvcmdl=&hvlocint=&hvlocphy=9033585&hvtargid=pla-350134889254 In the unlikely event I do get a flood, the walls and floor are already waterproof. The water would be contained. I could fire up the water bug at the low spot in the room, and clean mostly everything right up. Seems like a win right? No need to cut concrete... As much as I want a really cool room build, I don't want to spend 2 more years working on it Thoughts? Anyone ever use one of these?

    I put waaaaay too many hours into the alpha/beta, finally managed to quit right after 1.0. I love this game. I also hate this game. A lot. This video missed the 4x1000m uzi headshots on you and your entire team that were in a car moving 100km/h all in less than a second. The rampant cheating really took the steam out of it for me. And the constant crashing. And the hilarious terrain collisions while driving. At least they finally fixed a lot of the UI issues with release. I'm a dork.

    Thanks, yes, gravity will get the water to the front of the room (there will be a wall separating this room from the rest of garage). I would like to stop it at the room boundaries. And congrats on 14 cent goldfish, been there

    Who has time for hobbies Well lets see I am a fabricator so had a few off road rigs over the years and sold them.......building them was more fun than out breaking them. I like things that go bang.......... Now what spare time I have I like to tinker on older motorcycles......have a thing for the old Yamaha XS models. I think I have 6 now......400s all the way up to the 1100. Oh and I have a boat but hell around here its only good for maybe 3 months.

    If I’m not reefing I’m prolly bowling. Me and the wifey currently in the process of purchasing our own center. Bowling, pool, whisky/beer, reefing ,,,,,, All in one place. That’s the goal, then it won’t seem like work. Lol. A nice tank in a bowling alley is gonna be cool I think.
