  1. If you want to run chaeto and skimmer, you could convert the ATO resevior into a little fuge and hook up a small pump to cycle water through it and then back into your sump. @SuncrestReef has a build thread somewhere where he did that with his ATO and I believe it worked for what you want. Might be worth investigating This is the page where he shows the conversion. https://www.reef2reef.com/threads/suncrestreefs-red-sea-reefer-xl-425-build.358990/page-5
  2. I love how they host shrimp and lobsters and how they mimic the colors and patterns of the star hosting them. Amazing!
  3. Sorry to hear it BeardUp, I got a leopard wrasse from Cuttlefish a few weeks ago too, my Jewel Damsel was chasing it way too much and was relocated to the fuge to prevent stress to wrasse. Everything seemed well for a couple weeks, then this last Sunday morning to find my wrasse dead on the sandbed. It totally sucks and makes this hobby hard sometimes. It was such a cool fish. If you have a Damel, it was probably that one being territorial. I find my clowns are only territorial with the Damsel.
  4. My Curve 5 was the most moody skimmer I ever had. It took forever to break-in and had the overflowing foam forever too. Every time I would clean it, I had to deal with it all over again. I switched to a Reef Octopus and never looked back. Glad you got it dialed back, just know that it may go back to being crazy at any time.
  5. I recently upgraded from a Red Sea 170 to a 425xl and I'm selling the items I didn't bring over. I would like to sell it as a package or close to if anyone wants a bundle... if nobody is interested in that, I will sell things separately later. Here's what I have to offer: - Red Sea 170 with White cabinet, has all the original equipment (tank, stand, sump, ato reservoir) plus a rechargeable LED light with motion sensor in the cabinet. No scratches or chips. - Artfully Acrylic custom top for RS170. - Bubble Magus Curve 5 skimmer. - Ocean Revive t247 light. - 2x MP-10 WQD. Asking $1,100 for everything, which is less than half of retail as we all know how this hobby works. Everything is in great working order and I have an Eheim Jager heater I can throw in, so all you would need is a return pump. I'm cleaning it right now, so I should have photos later if it hasn't sold yet. Thanks for looking.
  6. Enso the blue is 3 and Moxy the brindle is 8.
  7. I have some rainbow bubble tips and one of them just happen to be moving positions on Monday, so picked it up. It's in a holding tank right now and is small, like a 1-1.5" in diameter.
  8. Love the blue cabinets with the dark island! Sweet tank too
  9. The lid is from ReefTops in the UK. They do all their communications through Facebook. https://www.facebook.com/ReefTops/ I have an Artfully Acrylic top on my 170 and I feel the ReefTops ones are a step above. He will customize it for any cutouts you want for auto-feeders, lights or whatever at no additional cost. They are both spendy, but if they keep any jumpers in your tank, I feel that are worth it.
  10. Was able to move over the livestock from my 170 in their new home today. Now time to plan out the new additions.

    I really thought this was a satire piece... these are really and can remove unwanted pests from your tank?
  12. I couldn't wait... I put in my order today. 🤣🤑
  13. Same, $500 worth of items in my BRS cart. Would do another group buy for those extra reefer points! Count me in if one is about to happen
  14. I bought a full spectrum screw-in LED light and flexible mount for the sump, was like $30. Hoping that works well, I was admiring the Tunze one since it's submersible
