  1. 300 gallon cube 48x48x30

    As like most people I can't believe this thing hasn't sold yet... For anyone considering it, this is a hell of a deal. I couldn't buy the acrylic at my wholesale price to build this tank for what Franks asking for everything!
  2. Newbies build

    Awesome! Great dimensions as well... James work really is second to none.
  3. Good Algae Scrubber/Scrapper for Acrylic Tank

    I wouldn't recommend using scrapers unless they're made out of polyethylene which are not all that common and dull fairly quickly and will need to be cut on a router to be sharp again. I still prefer the Dobie pad since you can use it to get into corners unlike a scraper.
  4. Good Algae Scrubber/Scrapper for Acrylic Tank

    Yep those are them, disregard the not for aquarium use... I have no clue why they have that on there. I rinse mine before and after every use. I've been using them for 10+ years on my tank with no ill effects. Best way to use them is by hand in the tank, You'll be amazed how quickly and easily you can cut through anything with them by hand. The outer layer is what does all of the scrubbing, inside they're just a piece of sponge.
  5. Good Algae Scrubber/Scrapper for Acrylic Tank

    Also, you can buy Dobie pads on Amazon in bulk for dirt cheap!
  6. Good Algae Scrubber/Scrapper for Acrylic Tank

    You definitely can't beat the Dobie pads, they're a necessity if you're going to own a acrylic tank and no scratches as long as you keep them out of the sand. Some people will tell you to use magic erasers, however they do put very fine scratches in the tank and over time will create a haze on the panels.
  7. 48" 54w T5 Bulbs

    So I've amassed a whole lot of bulbs playing with different colors and I think it's time to thin things out a little... All bulbs are used 6 months or less. I know a few have only seen a week or two of burn in. All of these have at least a year of life left in them or more. I'll compile a list tomorrow of exactly how many of each bulb I've got, there's a few Fauna Marin Ultra Royal Blues (I imported these directly from Germany) ATI Blue+, ATI Coral+, ATI Actinic, ATI Aquablue Special & ATI Purple+. Single bulbs for $10 Buy 4 for $9 each 5+ bulbs for $8 each
  8. 48" 54w T5 Bulbs

    So here's the bulbs I'm going to get rid of... Andrew has first pick then I'll update the list. ATI Blue+ 4 ATI Purple+ 2 ATI Aquablue Special 1 ATI Actinic 3 UVL Actinic White 1 Fauna Marin Ultra Royal Blue 3 ATI Coal+ 3
  9. 48" 54w T5 Bulbs

    I'll get a list in the morning of what all bulbs I'm going to get rid of, Andrew has first dibs on what ever bulbs he wants.
  10. 48" 54w T5 Bulbs

    I'll put you down for the first 5... Probably won't make the meeting but I'll see what I can do =)
  11. My 1st attempt at raising clownfish fry....

    Looking GREAT! Random deaths are pretty normal.
  12. Acrylic Glue

    Definitely! Not trying to sound like a prick, some people just come on here with the intention of building a 500 gallon tank without any experience. Acrylic fab isn't hard but it does take some practice to get it right. Baffles are easy, building a tank is a whole different ball game! I'd grab a few pieces of scrap out of the scrap pile at Tap and practice welding a few joints before you give it a go, it'll make your life a lot easier and you'll know what to expect. Remember, you're welding the acrylic (melting the two pieces together using the solvent) It's not like glue where the glue is actually the joint between the two pieces. 100% silicone is fine if you're just adding baffles and isn't permanent. Once you've welded a joint its there for good and a one shot deal.
  13. Acrylic Glue

    Tap plastics in Tualatin will have weldon, you'll need a few other things as well. What is it you're trying to build? No offense but you might be over your head depending on what you're trying to do.
  14. FISH 4 SALE (tank breakdowns)

    Is the swallow tail male or female?
  15. FISH 4 SALE (tank breakdowns)

    I want the blonde naso and possibly the powder blue depending on their size.
  16. Looking for MP10 power supply

    Or eBay, just look up the specs and search for the same thing. You can usually find them for about $15 ish... No reason to pay more for an Ecotech sticker on something like that.
  17. HELP: Apex Display

    I just had my whole Apex go out on my tank, display and base unit were toast... If you've messed with it I highly doubt they'll help you and what I gathered all they will do is replace parts, it's a weird deal down there for sure. If you want to sell your old display let me know, I might be interested in tinkering with it for parts of my own. Might want to try to give them a call though and see what they say... That is if you can actually get a person on the phone!
  18. SOS EMERGENCY!!! Need help

    The seam on your new tank??? Glad you've got it under control, let me know if you need anything else there's a good possibility I might have it.
  19. Blue spot Vlamingi tang

    Love mine, he's a gentle giant.
  20. Anyone convert a paintball co2 canister over?

    Gotcha, I could see it working on a very small nano tank.
  21. Anyone convert a paintball co2 canister over?

    I wouldn't do anything less than 5#, you'll tear through a paintball bottle in no time.
