  1. Wow! That is quite an advancement over the DA Reefkeeper. Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk
  2. I know this question is really individual dependant but I have been eyeballing the Apex. I really feel like the benefits for me are the temp, salinity and PH probes and having the ability to auto turn off a runaway heater. I might consider a dosing pump as I am hoping to better automate my dosing with this tank. With my last tank I had a DA Reefkeeper when it was the latest greatest and I loved the peace of mind. I was really disappointed to see they were out of the game. The 800 outlay on the Apex keeps me a little weary. Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk
  3. I have found myself making a list of the must have corals I need to track down. I was not near as picky when I had my 120 but now with a nano I have found myself becoming quite a coral snob, due to space. I have always loved the high end Monti's but with this tank I have started to discover Chalices. I didn't have any in my last tank but dang there are some out there with ridiculous color!

  4. Tank is progressing quite nicely. Everything is looking great so I added a couple monti frags. Also decided I needed more flow than the returns would give me so I added an aqamai KPM. I am actually quite impressed with it. The app is not super user friendly but once I got it figured out it is really a nice addition. Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk
  5. Where are you located. I would take the reefkeeper if it is feasible to get it? Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk

  7. You still have the Mummy Eye available? Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk
  8. Super generous offer and that rock looks just the right size. It is about an hour away but I have tomorrow, Friday and Saturday off. PM me and let me know what might work for you. Thank you! Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk
  9. Hey all I would like to buy a golf ball sized, or slightly larger rock, of neon green star Polyps. Lemme know if you have some or know of a Portland area LFS that has some available. Thank you! Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk
  10. Welcome back. I too just came back after about a 9 year break. It is a hard habit to kick. [emoji23] Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk
  11. Well tank is running smoothly. I may have cheated a bit and used sand and water from an established aquarium [emoji6]. Trates were about 5.0 ppm yesterday but everything leveled out to zero today. I was intending on getting one clown fish and a Lawnmower Blenny but couldn't break up this pair and leave one all alone and lonely so ended up with two and a Blenny. Now I will let things settle a bit and then start searching out a small to medium rock of bright green clove polyps. One of my personal favorite softies. Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk
  12. lolol..no kidding! It wasn't easy to find locally. I Found one at an LFS, on a bottom shelf, in a dusty, water stained box. Bringing back a little old school.
  13. I think I will do a mixed Reef; although, I will be very selective with the softies. My passion is encrusting Montis. I am working with limited space this time so I plan to go with unusual and very eye catching SPS. Going to take a little getting used to the Nano world as far as space goes. Here are a few early pictures of the 120 glass I used to have. I will miss the space but not the water changes...lol
  14. TaylorW, So I did a lit of research online before building the background. I ended up using what seemed like was working for many other; although, there are arguments about every option, as there is with everything Marine Aquarium. Items used: Egg Crate (light diffuser) Some small dry rock Pond Spray foam (make sure it is UV and Fish safe) Fiberglass two part resin (marine grade) Sand If you want detailed instructions I can post them or PM them to you
  15. Tanks up and running..sorry I haven't had a chance to respond to the replies. I will soon. I'll take better photos when the cloudiness clears Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk
