    Mark, I might be interested in coming over and picking through your sps frags depending on what all you have left...

  5. Refractometer

    I think I have a couple spares around here although none of them are the cheapy eBay ones... Shoot me a PM if you're still looking.
  6. Oceans By Design @ Andover Park E = GONE?

    OBD was sold to Crystal Reef Aquatics, they have a store up north but I haven't been there. Mike from OBD is still building custom tanks under the CRA name now.
  7. Looking for a ATO

    I have a virtually new Tunze Nano I'd let go for $70 Save you a few dollars off of new.
  8. Need co2

    If you're in desperate need I have half a 5# bottle you can grab.
  9. Long term or prolonged spikes in potassium can cause burnt tips very similar to high alk burns.
  10. I don't have a calculator handy and my brain is fried but my best advice is to split up your doses and add very slowly! Potassium isn't detrimental at 380 but a quick rise will be a sure fire way to fry the tips off your sps!
  11. Crystal Reef Aquariums/Oceans By Design tank/sump

    Nicely done lol... I'd say it really depends on the tank dimensions and how you plan on viewing the tank, I went with just the front panel only tank because even at 30" front to back I rarely even look at my tank from the sides. Who will you be having build your tank? What are the dimensions you're planning?
  12. Crystal Reef Aquariums/Oceans By Design tank/sump

    Trust me the Starphire is worth it! Definitely want to keep the wife happy, especially when she figures out how much you'll actually be investing into the tank!
  13. Crystal Reef Aquariums/Oceans By Design tank/sump

    If you're planning on a canopy I don't see any reason to buy custom if you can get something in a dimension that makes you happy. I would however recommend buying a tank that has Starphire or another type of low iron glass. That's money well spent!
  14. Crystal Reef Aquariums/Oceans By Design tank/sump

    They built mine... While I love the look of my trimless tank it's a PITA to clean even with the water level lowered with the return off. You definitely have to be careful to not make a mess on the floor. I would advise against getting a trimless tank if you're planning on a canopy, it'll be messy when you clean and I don't think it would be as safe for the added weight. On a side note they've also had a couple tank failures in the last couple months... I'm not sure what's going on up there since Mike sold OBD and he's now building the tanks for Crystal Reef Aquatics. While mine has been great for two years now, I don't think I'd buy another tank from them.
  15. ATI worth the money?

    I think you'd be very hard pressed to find anyone who has actually owned an ATI fixture say it wasn't worth the money.
  16. Not reef but koi.. big big koi

    I'll pass this along to Travis, he has a large Koi pond at home.
  17. Sent you a PM about the tank...
  18. FS Moving Sale All Corals and Fish must go

    Just noticed your post updated to pending... put me second in line I guess.
  19. FS Moving Sale All Corals and Fish must go

    I'll take the leopard wrasse as well as a few corals depending on what all catches my eye.
  20. Neptune Apex Classic

    Decided I wanted to try something new. Comes with an almost New PH probe with 2 months of use, main base unit was just replaced with a brand new one 4 months ago. Also included is an EB8, Temp probe and display unit. This Display unit has a mind of it's own and likes to turn off periodically so I quit using it a while ago and mounted a tablet into my stand which actually works a lot better with Fusion than the display ever did for programming and control. $375 I'll be pulling this off of my tank in two weeks but can be pulled sooner if someone wants it asap.
  21. Sump: to clean or not to clean?

    I clean mine every other month, I absolutely can't stand having a dirty sump.
  22. With a heavy heart

    [language filter], what the hell? James was a great guy...
  23. Weird experience

    My guess would be sperm that was about to be released...
  24. Pump

    You'll be fine that's still moving plenty of water for that small of a tank.
  25. Pump

    Upscales should have a few, I knows there's a couple Rio's there that would work. A lot of people knock the Rio pumps but as long as you don't run them dry they last pretty much forever. I have a couple that are over 15 years old! I believe there's a few Sicce pumps there as well. But honestly the Rio is just as quiet.
