  1. Euroreef Skimmer

    I'll take it! Sending you a PM
  2. Man did I screw up this week

    Clean your skimmer well, including the pump. Do at least a 50% W/C. I have got away with doing 75% or more a few times. It's cheap insurance as it will get the majority of the contaminates out quickly. Was the paint used Latex or Enamel? BTW, sorry about your loss.
  3. New Tank

    Looks good Scott!
  4. new cold water pics

    Neat fish!
  5. ...If you pray

    Austin, I will say a prayer. Keep your chin up!

  7. Great idea! It has my wheels turnin'. Let me know if you need any help moving the beast.
  8. Shannon, That is going to be AWESOME! I like the ingenuity! Who needs a window annyway(laugh)
  9. Is this normal? (mogul MH)

    I have had a few that came with the burnt mirror ring around the glass above the threads. They worked fine, but I always wondered why they were that way. It was with 250w BLV's
  10. Pacific Coast salt

    give me a few days Jim. I will do the run of the mill tests soon.
  11. New Tank

    Very cool Scott! I bet you're happier with the 24" height. Your plumbing looks pretty slick. I like the CA reactor feed line, that's the way I do it. Nice crawler too!(rock2)
  12. What do you do for a top-off?

    I use a float valve in the sump as well. It is hooked up to a 6 gal salt bucket. I used a drill bit and a tap to make the threads at the bottom of the bucket, and it uses John Guest fittings. You can build one for about $25(float valve is around $15). You can do it with the cheaper Jayco fittings but it's much easier with the JG speedfits.
  13. New frags from Josh

    Looks like a nice A. Tenuis I got a frag from another reefer, and it is in the top 3 favorites of the limited SPS frags I have now.
  14. flatworms

    great shot! that don't look good.
  15. Where to get Metric PVC?

    I heard they have good wings there. (whistle)
  16. Small external pump?

    I hear you. The one I want is $130.
  17. What's this?

    Looks like an encrusting sponge. It shuldn't grow faster than your zoas, but if you want to get rid of it, pick it off with a tooth pick, or tweezers. I thinks it's pretty cool, and I would frag off the zoas before the sponge, but that's me.
  18. Small external pump?

    Eheim! DEAD silent.
  19. Round Two

    Looks nice scott! How is the overflow doing? Is the surface area enough to skim the film off the top?
  20. Look at this- xenia-man from nano-reef

    That's LIMITED EDITION!(laugh)
  21. magflake not safe anymore???

    Oh, I see now. This thread is LOADED with flames(nutty) (scratch) You guys should have seen the posts at R.D.O. or RC in the religion/politics arena. THAT was flaming(flame) CCR, Simma down big fella. I'd hate to see people leave because of something as goofy as this. Steveweast said it best. It's CYA!
  22. What is this?

  23. What is this?

    tube worm. The smaller purple/maroon ones are Vermetid snails.
