    Jorge, how much does your light unit weigh? My 36" ATI hybrid unit weighs about 50 pounds with a big power/control cable attached and I don't trust sheetrock anchors for that. I assumed I would have to attach some 1x3 boards solidly to the ceiling and hang my light from them. Your way would be a lot easier for me if it would hold safely. - Mark

    SPS changes reveal chemistry imbalance

    I read somewhere that the "Redfield" ratio should have been 117:14:1 (C:N:P). In any case, the Nitrate to Phosphate ratio in a reef aquarium should approximate 15:1. Too far out of whack can cause potential problems.
  4. If I had the room, I would jump on this tank.
  5. I have a snapper and maybe a Dart that I am not using and will sell. PM me.

    Looking for phosphate to dose

    I bought a bottle of NeoPhos from BRS. It only takes a few days to arrive. If you have an emergency, I can give you some. I am in South Tigard.

    Jorge, I couldn't find any details on the tank, like the dimensions. Lots of pictures of a moose antlers rock though.

    Recommendations for 180 gallon aquarium lighting

    Jason Fox swears by Reefbrite blue LEDs with T5 UV bulbs added.
  10. I have a collection of uni seals that I bought and don't need. I'm almost positive I have 1". I will check.

    MACNA 2018 Las Vegas

    I will be there too, Wed thru Mon at the Westgate. I prefer Fremont, really good bands playing for free. Last time I was there, Corona was $7 on the strip and $3 on Fremont. I take a taxi to a Fremont hotel and back to our hotel after. Never met any of Kim's shady people but I don't leave Fremont.

    Looking for a small-footprint calcium reactor

    Yes, use a kalk reactor/stirrer instead of the calcium reactor/CO2 setup. It will be limited by tank evaporation, but it also raises the tank pH instead of lowering it.

    CNC is famous

    I just received the latest issue of Coral magazine and saw a picture of the gorgeous "CNC Splatterpaint Fungia". Awesome coral Jeff. Congratulations! Mark
