    Inkbird heater controllers are about 30 bucks each on Amazon (not sure if any local shops stock them), at 90 bucks to do three tanks that is a good chunk, but so is replacing a tank full of livestock. If you aren't planning to run a full controller this is likely the most cost-effective way to add a level of insurance to the most frequent to fail component.

    You are going to be in real trouble once you realize those all grow, they don't stay puppies forever...

    Crazy's 350 Journal

    In another era the plan was to take anything broken that someone else didn't want and make it work, usually it worked for a while, some projects never really lasted too long. Her pet rabbit gnawing through the spaflex return line I really don't blame myself for. That was the last day she had a pet rabbit...

    I am so jealous of that extra cabinet space for equipment, I have like 3" of space in my 170. I like the minimal rock work myself, I am sure it will look great once populated. Following along, this or the XL425 will be my next upgrade, I just need to prove to my wife that this tank won't leak like the 30, 60, 75, and 150 did!

    Encrusting... something question

    Alright, lepto is, thanks for the suggestion!
  7. Hello all, I have some seriously nobby rock, and I want to find something that will encrust over it. I am thinking a super colorful lepto, a couple of cool encrusting montiporas, or a nice cyphastrea or two. The pockets in this rock are around 1/2" deep, so it needs to be something that has some serious depth to it, or something that can grow across the spans in the rock. I need to eventually cover an area the size of a football. I guess the other option would be ensconcing it in ricordeas... Any ideas from someone who has tried to deal with this super bump Fiji-esque rock? Photo attached for reference.

    Hmm, that likely means I need to learn SketchUp doesn't it?

    My real question is, who did you get to make that sweet cabinet for you? I can work on a layout that will work, but the construction is beyond my hand tools.

    Oh man, found you via @R-3, we need to talk about how you got that Apex cabinet made!

    You cut the aluminum frame with a pvc cutter? I would have never guessed that would work!

    Neptune Apex... I HATE you

    I need to program mine to not warn me about water level every time I enter feed mode, that is getting annoying. Also it seems I need to order a backup energy bar, hadn't thought of that being a point of failure.

    A minor victory, after hours cursing the miter box and saw I got the screen top completed. If someone has a chop saw with a fine tooth blade they could make a killing as a side business buying these kits and cutting them for people, I would have easily paid 30 bucks to have someone save me all the time cutting and deburring the aluminum. The wave in the netting bothers me, and I need to shorten a piece by about 3mm, so at some point I will take it apart and fix the thing, but for now I will drink beer.

    Going to try to get a new beat going, GZA (snowflake #3) joins RZA, Method Man, and Ghostface Killah, hopefully he gets featured and let him join the Clan. Photo shoot tomorrow. Also, is anyone experienced building Apex control cabinets? This pasta buffet of wires and cords cannot stand, and doesn't even have the Ecotech drivers in the way. Life goal #847: get this fixed before Trident hits.

    I picked up a tiny hammer today to “test the waters” on how the tank is maturing. If all goes well I should be ready to start stocking in June.
