    Aqueon Proflex Sump

    Thanks you 2! With regular maintenance it's not that hard to keep stuff clean. It lasts longer too!

    Aqueon Proflex Sump

    I'm selling the skimmer that fits perfectly in this sump. I'll do $250 for both.

    Greg's Red Sea Peninsula 650 Build Thread

    Silicone will seal it fine. Or you can use a 1/4" bulkhead.

    True, but you can run the product line of your rodi wherever the heck you want from the laundry room.

    Just use a Y splitter and 1/4" adapter on your cold supply for your washing machine. Run the waste line from your rodi down the washing machine drain. Should cost about $20.

    Radion SPS AB+

    I've been running it for over a year. G3 and G4 pros. 75%. No changes. Love the colors. If the pics looked natural I would post a few but nope. Maybe when I get a new phone...

    December Picture of the Month - Tangs

    ☝️So much WIN!
  10. I was going to add a bunch of stainless corner braces on my stand but I don't want to void the warranty. It is VERY sturdy. Plus mine is dead nuts level! We'll see how long it stays that way. I trust it.
  11. Build the stand, put the tank on it and put a level perpendicular on the top of the tank. Bounce on either side of the long end of the tank and see if the bubble moves. If so, I'd consider other options. If not, fill it with freshwater and repeat It doesn't look like much foot traffic will be going on next to your tank the way your desks are set up but it would concern me if the tank will shift weight frequently due to the design of the stand. Cam lock fasteners are fine under normal conditions but prolonged weight shifting will loosen/stretch them out over time. I have a Reefer 525, I worry about that on mine. It sits perpendicular on 3, 2 x 12 joists and a 4 x 8 beam. It rocks ever so slightly when full with my 230lb tookus bouncing in front of the tank. No running going on in my living room!
  12. Scott brings up a great point about the thickness of the decking. That definitely helps spread the load but I still would be worried if it were my tank/house. Keep in mind that I am not a structural engineer. Without vertical support, any perpendicular supports underneath would be useless anyway. The foor should hold the tank up, no problem. The issue is rocking side to side...
  13. It all depends on how much you want to spend/do. If the tank is centered over the joist, you want to spread that weight across at least 1 more joist. Preferably 2. You can add supports under the tank that run perpendicular to the joists and then add floor jacks to give more support. Knowing nothing about your homes construction I can't say for sure though. I would definitely look into it....
  14. You want the tank to run perpendicular to the joists. If it's running parallel it will most likely rock side to side when people walk by. I would not put it there if it was my tank.

    RO/DI Problems

    You probably have a lot of sediment in your supply. Change the prefilters more frequently.

    Sick Montipora

    It looks like light shock to me. Possibly a hot spot from your LEDS. Move it down 6 inches and see how it does.
