    This weekend, I'm riding my motorcycle. I hear the virus top speed is 100 mph so I plan to outrun it...

    Having film is normal when mixing salt, also any super glue is fine. You can even use dollar store kind.

    quick note for glue: as long as it's cyanoacrylate without weird additives, it's fine (that means most 'superglue' is fine). But if it's not a gel variety, it will be a giant pain to use; you'll have more on your hands than the coral/plug

    I've got the solution! Take a small flattish rock and drill frag plug sized holes in it. Fill it with frags and your sandbed will look much cleaner!

    My purple/green/blue stag continues to grow like a weed. It's now within 1/4" of the water surface. It was only 1" tall in Oct 2018.

    I'm really loving these superman blastos at the shop right now. Who would like to see an auction for these? If it goes well we might do a few others. Let us know!

    I have found that regular bits chew through real live rock pretty well. The man made stuff though...uggh! Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk

    Spade bits like that are probably not the best idea. They will get caught on crevices and stop the drill in its tracks, it will hurt your wrist pretty bad. Masonry bits would be the best (silver ones below) but standard bit can work too(gold bit below).

    Honestly, the best time for this stuff is right after the economy takes a shiet. You would NOT believe how much cheaper contractors are when the work drys up. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk

    The Tank: Reefer 250 with Gen3 XR30 for lighting. Icecap Gyre for flow, Bubble-Magnus curve 5 protein skiller and current eflux DC return pump. Most of the rock is from Cuttlefish and Corals, it's the man made rock they carry. It and the other live rock from another tank cycled in a brute tube for 3 months before setting up the tank. Tank has been running for about 2 months. Fish are 2 clowns, a pink spotted watchman goby and tiger pistol shrimp pair and a cleaner shrimp. There are other various corals and plenty more to come πŸ˜πŸ€‘! Acan is placed on a small Reefing Art frag rack on the left side of the tank. There are the 2 main polyps and a few little ones on the backside. Pic was taken with Samsung Galaxy S9+ with Reefing Art 20k filter lense. I will get a few more angles including the top down tommorrow the other pics turned our really fuzzy and I didnt notice until now and the lights are off πŸ€¦β€β™‚οΈ. Other pics added 3-20-2020

    So here are my pics of my frag, side and top view. System: Tank: Red Sea Reefer 350, 73g display 18g sump. Lights: Red Sea 90's x2 Blue: 50% 8 hours White: 20% 8 hours lunar cycle: 4 hours Skimmer: Simplicity 320 DC Power heads: Icecap Gyres 3k x2 running 10-50% surge cycle Salt: Reef crystals at 1.024 sg Heater: 300w Hydor Temp: 78.4 Return Pump: I believe its 1250gph Fish: Yellow Tang, 6 Line Wrasse, Maroon Clown, Tuxedo Urchin, 2 Cleaner Shrimp, 3 Blue Leg Hermits, 2 nassarius snails, 2 Turbo snails, 1 Rainbow BTA Mixed corrals I do weekly maintenance on the tank, 5-20% water changes, Random Cleanings, I use only RO/DI water, and as of now I don't dose the tank. The pictures were taken with the frags on my sand bed because i didn't have a frag rack at the time of the pics, future pics will probably be of it on a frag rack. I feed the corrals once a week with reef roids, and prior to feeding i feed the tank with polyp booster. Tank is about 4 months old.

    I had an idea a while back to make a masonry bit that would drill the hole and countersink the frag plug head too. Got busy with other things.

    I just used a cheapo Irwin wood drill bit. Live rock is pretty soft

    I have an old Eshopp large cone skimmer but the magnet part of the impeller have cracked. Replacement impeller was a bit pricey so this weekend I decided to upgraded it with my Jebao needle/mesh conversion kit. Bought a Jebao DCP-10000. Also made a custom bubble diffuser.
