    Tips on Solana setup please

    I think Tunze also makes some small skimmers that are popular with the solana. Check that out. Also, it was either reef central or nano reefs forum that had huge solana thread going. I used to go there a lot for info.

    Tips on Solana setup please

    When I had a solana I ran a sapphire aquatics skimmer. That thing ROCKED for it size and was very quiet. I'll second the advice to ditch the ATO bottles and run a proper switch with a remote ATO reservoir. I use the same switch as Grassi with no problems at all.

    Tank and Equipment sale

    Tank, skimmer and sump sold. Still have the chiller, pump, and Icecap ballast. I'll likely be adding a few small things in the next few days as I clean out.

    Tank and Equipment sale

    I have too many other hobbies that I enjoy way more. Every time I have to spend money on the tank I think it could be going towards other passions. I might set up a cold water pico tank though, we'll see.

    J-Dog's NEW 60x30x24 BUILD

    stock it up. As long as you don't fill the tank in a weeks time you will be fine. Just keep an eye on things.

    a plywood reef tank?

    I did some research on plywood tanks and by the time its all said and done, it cost about the same as an acrylic tank.

    Solana advice needed

    I had a solana stocked FULL of sps. I only kept a few fish and did a weekly 5g water change. I had plenty of flow with an mp10 and I had a sapphire aquatics solana skimmer that was a beast for it's size. I ditched the stock ATO and put a float switch in the last chamber and had a 10g container underneath that I used for top off water.
  15. Thanks for doing this! I'm sure it will help out a lot of us.

    Internal skimmers?

    I have the same skimmer as you already know. If you ask really nice I could take my skimmer stand away and see what happens. I think my skimmer would end up in about 13'' of water without the stand raising it to about 7-8''

    Newbie 101 Coral regrets that I have made!

    I made just about every mistake as listed in the first post. I'd add Xenia to that list as well.
  18. finch6013

    Which skimmer?

    I have that same SRO 3000 and I don't have a single complaint. I would get the reef octo for sure.

    Panther Chameleon FS

    Panther Chameleon FS

    We'd like to sell our Male panther chameleon. He's a little over a year old, we raised it from a little baby. He has amazing colors that change frequently with mood and surroundings. It's what is known as a blue bar coloration. The colors can vary anywhere from red, yellow, blue, or green. Includes a cage, habitat, lights, timers, spray bottle for keeping it's habitat moist, cricket feeder and more. The cage is getting a little on the small side, so I'd recommend upgrading it in the future. This particular chameleon is very easy to take care of and has never been picky about eating. It will eat crickets out of your hand. He's very friendly and has never been aggressive towards anyone. $250 Here are some poor cell pics form several months ago. If you are interested we can get better pics of the chameleon and its cage.

    WTB Catalina Goby

    Looking for Catalina gobies. Does anyone know if there are any PDX area shops that have some?
  23. finch6013

    i want to be a sponsored business.

    Based on what I know of the rules, I don't think you currently qualify. You must have a storefront or an online store.

    Catching them in your tank might be a challenge, but sure. I'm wanting to get a few ultimately, but live aquaria is out of stock for the time being.

    Good local stores?

    I recommend Upscales, and The Premium Aquarium. Those are about the only shops that have earned my business and deserve it. I frequented Westside a lot too. It's unfortunate that they closed.
