  1. Back at it... RSR 170

    Running Apex package... the problem I had is my resevoir (when full) would create a siphon. When I first set it up I used the anti siphon fitting they provided and the standard programming. The anti siphon fitting reduced the pump input so drastically that the standard 5:00 minutes on pump mode was not enough to keep up with my evaporation over a day. Changed my ato input into tank so there is no siphon, increased the 5:00 on to minutes to 15:00 minutes on and seems good to go. Working on setting up high/low resovoir notifications now.
  2. Back at it... RSR 170

    I’m getting my Apex ATO rolling now. Had some issues getting the programming dialed but seems to be working well after a few weeks of tweeking the programming and set-up. I like it but was not “plug and play” as some say. We’ll see how it performs long term.
  3. Time to part with tank

    If you end up parting out I would be interested in the carpet..... Goodluck with the sale!
  4. getting clown to eat..

    As said above live black worms... world of Wet Pets in Beaverton used to carry but I have not been there in some time. They also carry live brine shrimp. Mix the live in with frozen to get his attention.
  5. What do you do?

    I’m am a precast concrete project consultant with a focus on railway and bridge structures. If you need a bridge I can help you out. Otherwise I’m probably of not much use. I can share my random mistakes that I’ve made over the years reefing with hopes that they are not repeated by others.......
  6. Radion SPS AB+

    Running on my g4 but setup is only 3 months old and just threw first spa frags in last week. So no constructive input from me.....
  7. 280g Barrel of monkeys build

    This is a great set-up. Having remote sump is awesome. Love the skimmer. This will be fun to follow.
  8. Red Sea Reefer Overflow Valves

    Did it always fluctuate or did it get worse over time? I have had my reefer running about 4 weeks now but have not had to adjust since I set it up. The mod looks great!
  9. WTB 4x2x2 Stand

    Upscales has a nice used stand/canopy for 4x2.....
  10. This is a great set-up..... I thought hard about buying this tank at Upscales but just would not fit the space in my home. Can’t wait to see what you do with it.
  11. Live Brine Shrimp

    I would check World of Wet Pets in Beaverton. Have not been there in a few months but usually carry live brine.
  12. RBTA's

    Where are you located? If a mid day pickup can be arranged this week I would take both.
  13. As the title says.... Outgrew these items but are still in great condition. Desk and toy box pine and perfect condition. Train table is a little wobbly but still many years of use left in it. .... $60.00 takes the set! Feel free to text with any questions. 503-330-5443
  14. Sold on way to its new home tomorrow.......
  15. WTS Vertex Cerebra Prima w/ Accessories!

    If no one is interested in complete unit I would take the float valve, fluid and probe....
  16. Drilling an established tank for a sump?

    Drilled many tanks.... I would remove everything and be prepared for it to crack. Cooling the galss drill hole saw requires antifreeze or steady stream of water. Hard to do with fish/corals in tank. I vote eshopps overflow...
  17. Vertex cerebra beta participants

    I was able to pick mine up today and will work on setting up tomorrow. Any comments from those running them for a few weeks?
  18. Hello looking for a large gold bar maroon clown.Need a large 3"+. My male lost his mate last year and would like to try and find him a match. He used to be bullied from his past wife so aggressive is not an issue. Shoot me some pics and a price! Thanks! Jim
  19. This sucks..... I've come home to a busted heater, stray voltage and tank crash. Lost a few corals and a clam. I agree with above comments of keeping it simple water changes and carbon. It will turn around quickly. Good luck
  20. Skimmer FS

    Randy your old skimmer is still running my neglected 120..... It is an awesome skimmer.....
  21. I will take LEDs if still available. Can PayPal or cash at pick up. Your box is full.....
  22. Go Ducks!

    I'm guessing no Ohio State fans on this thread?
  23. Frag tank or holding tank

    Just pm me and I can shot you my cell....
  24. Frag tank or holding tank

    I have a poly tub you can use. It's about 4'x2'x2' oval. Approximate 120 gallons. I just used it for a tank move myself. If it works let me know you are welcome to use it. Just hosed it out and drying on the back porch.
  25. I would be interested.... I'm off 113th Cedar Hills 97229
