  1. Going Sockless

    Yes, I let detritus gather in my sump. Every 6-9months, I'll vacuum my sump. Sent from my SM-N950U1 using Tapatalk
  2. 5G as in new cell 5G beta network. I don't think we have that in Portland yet. Maybe you meant wifi 5ghz vs 2.4ghz. If you wifi router supports dual band, then you can have both 5ghz and 2.4ghz wifi signals. Depending on it's setup, they could have different SSID or same SSID. I recommend naming they differently so you can choose which wifi to connect to. Sent from my SM-N950U1 using Tapatalk

  4. Lexinverts' Red Sea Max reef tanks

    Those remind me of things from Dr Seuss. ;-) Sent from my SM-N950U1 using Tapatalk
  5. New ReeFi aquarium controllers coming in April

    Should be very competitive. I'm still sourcing parts. Tax time is taking up most of my time... frantically searching for my receipts for all my business expanses. Maybe if I get audited, I'll just hand over a bucket of receipts and have them sort it out. haha

  7. March Picture of the Month - Angelfish

    They don't bother gonioporas or the hammers when in frag tank either. Sent from my SM-N950U1 using Tapatalk
  8. March Picture of the Month - Angelfish

    So far the angels don't really bother sps. The Emperor nipped on my clam so I moved the clam to my connected back tank. I don't keep Zoas and only softie I have are mushrooms. When I got the emperor, I was surprised that it started eating flakes out of fingers on day 2. Regal took over a week before eating flakes from my finger. Sent from my SM-N950U1 using Tapatalk
  9. Looking for larger rimless tank

    Too bad I didn't see this before. I would sell mine 235gal rimless and upgrade to bigger tank. That's if Jorge and Bret are up for helping me move the tank again. ;-) Sent from my SM-N950U1 using Tapatalk
  10. March Picture of the Month - Angelfish

    My Emperor and Regal don't really interact together or cross paths much. So hard to get a pic with both of them. This is the best I got after stalking them for 30min.
  11. 3D printed ato float holder

    Nicely done. Which 3D printer did you end up getting?
  12. Playing with underwater camera case for Sony RX100 mark 2. Got some hits and misses on some goniopora selections. The ones I have now seems to be thriving. Some of my old acro that STN/RTN to a few polyps have grow back. Recently added a couple wild acro colonies, starting to color up a bit.
  13. Can't lower nitrate

    Nitrate at 10ppm is not bad. If it does go up at consistent rate, I wouldn't distrub the sandbed. For small tanks, if you want to lower nitrate with water change, do like 90+% at one time. Just make sure the new saltwater is well mixed at least for a entire day in advance. You should match the salinity/temp and match major elements as close as possible. When we buy new fishes/corals, they go through 100% water change when they're placed into our tanks. However, if your nitrate keeps increasing, better to fix the cause before doing water changes. Any easy fix would be to dose volka. That's assuming you have a good enough skimmer. There are charts online for dosing volka instructions. Algae scrubber is another good option. ATS box can sit on the top back corner but might be too unsightly? Or a cheato reactor in the stand would be another option for AIO. Sent from my SM-N950U1 using Tapatalk
  14. I can donate a Monti frag or two. They have encrusted onto the bottom of my frag tank. I'll try to scrape them off in next few days without breaking into too many pieces. Sent from my SM-N950U1 using Tapatalk
  15. Holly's Amazingly Awesome $10 Frag Sale

    I want to show up early with some popcorn and see how the battle unfolds. hehe
