  1. Need Id

    No the tank is 5 years at least. Though about two weeks ago she switched to leds from t5s. Thats when she started witb hair algae and these. And also adding started adding fish back into her tank 4 weeks ago. . She's been without fish for over 9 months I think. She had a parasite and we had removed everything for treatment and to make sure it was dead.
  2. Need Id

    So a friend sent me A picture of her reef aquarium. Two weeks ago it was perfect. A few days ago these she said showed up. And hair algae. Same time. She has water changes every two weeks. Reef Chrystal salt and ro water. Ro machine has new filters. I can’t tell in picture what they might be. Can you? They are covering the tank. 72 gallon. With sump, skimmer, etc. tank pars as I know of as of yesterday. 77 degrees, kh7, ca500, not sure about rest of her tests. She didn’t say in pic. As of late August she did get new leds. My guess if it takes over the tank that fast not good, but I don’t know what they are. I know the hair algae of course. 262A0FB2-8A29-41F3-B524-0B5A34D8FEA9.mov

  4. Finally cleaned out the garage sale :)

    Do you still have some of this stuff?
  5. Hydor 705 skimmer

    How many gAllons do they do?
  6. Here goes nothing

    I work for the original top fathom owner from like 25 years ago before he sold his business. He gave me a while ago before my move a original top fathom skimmer. Not like the ones they make now. But an original. I've been cleaning up my garage and final found the collection cup. So here goes nothing. Tomorrow I buy pcv pipe and set it up externally. For the last 2 years my 120 display was running strictly on rocks in my 55 sump for filtration. Its about time. The pump it will be running will be a ocean runner ot2500. Also the older model. Wish me luck.. i honest to god never ran one externally before. Im just not willing to get rid of live rock to put it in my sump. That and if i moved rock ontop of itself id have to fill my sump more. And i like the idea if electric goes out my house doesn't flood. That sump can take the water. Fingered crossed. I've seen them running before. I know they have to be adjusted just right, but when they are they are the best..
  7. internal or external skimmer

    My dad has external and his sits in a Rubbermaid container on the floor. I've also seen people mount them externally above the sump. So it's above just in case but not in the tank.
  8. Is there too much cleaning?

    Normally I'm a every few weeks to once a month water changer. My tank has been set up for two years and is tested regularly and healthy and happy. But lately I've been sanding out scratched so I've been doing 10 gallon water change every few day to help get the sanding debris out of my tank. My display is 120 Gallons, and my Sump filled part way aprox. 30 gallon. Im on sanding day 5.. slow but comming nicely. Anyway all of a sudden I'm getting brown algae out of no where. I always had a little on my tank walls when I magged scrapped, but non anywhere else. Now it's on my sand and rocks. Am i changing out too much water?
  9. Is there too much cleaning?

    I'm in Springfield. Area is low. But I also am using rodi water... maybe I'll test though. Maybe time for new filters in it..
  10. Save the date! April 15

    I hear there might be another reef store in eugene soon.. maybe we can get them to join the forum and have some meetings there.. then I could go... or maybe sometime the fish store in springfield might house a meeting. Sean is a good place to go for fish.. great prices.. I cant wait till he gets his reef section up and running...
  11. Save the date! April 15

    Wish there were meeting down in My area more.. I can't travel anymore.. I'm in springfield.
  12. All koi have new home.gone.... So I know this is not reef related.. but there's a huge koi aquarium dropping down at this end of month. Just koi not tank equipment. Huge koi need new homes. Any one know any one who might want some.. I have two spoken for but the rest up for grabs.. they require huge aquarium or pond.. right now they are in 700 gallons.. Pick up only
  13. Not reef but koi.. big big koi

    They are quite large... bigger ones I'd say at least a foot long. At least... that's my husband standing behind the tank... Monday thru Friday I can show the tank at discretion. It's a office, so quietly. You can text me 541 514 9476.
  14. Not reef but koi.. big big koi

    So we have to have the koi out by the end of this month I believe its the 27th or the 30th that we are taking them out so you would have to pick them up by then. I'm going to get some pictures for you today I'm on my way there now. To see if you need to contact me personally so I can take you in because it is a business that they are in right now. But I have no problem doing that. go ahead and message me if you want to do that. They are first come first serve. Sharing the love... also to go into a pond that you need to be acclimated to the temperature can change in this cold weather the pond store nearby and you said. that takes 30 to an hour with them floating in a bag so they could be the same temperature that way they don't die when they go into hibernation.
  15. Not reef but koi.. big big koi

    But if I have time I'll get a picture tomorrow
  16. Not reef but koi.. big big koi

    We want to make sure these baby's are taken care of.. and please no stores contact me. If I wanted a store to have them for resale I'd take them to the one by me.. I want them to go to a loving home that is going to enjoy them. Not sale to just anyone
  17. Not reef but koi.. big big koi

    They are in springfield eugene area..
  18. Not reef but koi.. big big koi

    Don't have any now since they are in a bussiness that hasn't announced to public they are closing. but I will probably have some soon... they are really old koi... been maintained in a system unlike non other.. they were designed to have a 50 percent water change every day at lunch time... fish super healthy... Glass cleaned daily. Rodi system. No expense was held back on these fish.. I've seen nothing like it.. if I had a million bucks I'd dream of this tank
  19. Want updates????

    So what's new with the store haven't heard a word since october...
  20. Thought we'd have some reef tank fun... in honor of this just happening to me... I'll start... fill in the end of this sentence... Don't you just love it when... Don't you just love it when you stick your arm in your tank and realized your water is 60 degrees; your new heater stopped working..
  21. Tank crash........

    sorry to hear about your tank crashing.... Mine did a similar many moons ago... I wish I could get a larger dream tank but hubby said 120 gallons with 55 sump and 40 refuge was enough... and my clown fy tank if I ever have the energy to breed again.... I think its unfare.. every one deserves their dream tank.. mine just happens to be splash swim center.. I already has a wave pool.. and the lap pool would be perfect for sting rays and jellies and the kiddy pool could be my frags... Got it all figured out.. but at last I haven't won the lottery.. lol
  22. I total thought you were going to pull your own name for a second.. lol congrats winner....
  23. Don't you just love it when....

    lucky for me I had a eheim heater still in a box... I had a delayed shipment on it before and was forced to go to petco and buy one. so when my eheim came I just left it for back up... but of course aqueo wont warranty their heater...
  24. Fish Videos

    Do you still have sea hare and camels. Thinking I want them too...two camels in my tank makes it look empty. Oh the addition of a large aquarium the need to fill...
  25. I'm guessing maybe parasite I've never seen before. It was like it was bleeding out internally. She was sad... but that's the life of reefing I suppose..
