  1. It has come time for me to move on to another hobby.

  7. I have a few corals I would like to part with. $20...First, I have what I think is a spongodes SPS...green body with brown polyps. This has been growing very well in my tank. Here is when I first got it in November $30...Next, this was sold to me as a Forrest Fire monti, but I can't really see green on the tips... $30...Lobo with purple outer and pink inners for the heads.
  8. WTS a few corals and snails

    So the chalice and GSP are PENDING, but other than that, I still have the lobo, the spongodes and the monti.
  9. WTS a few corals and snails

    UPDATE: Snails are all spoken for.
  10. WTS a few corals and snails

    I am in Vancouver, WA.
  11. WTS a few corals and snails

    For some reason I cannot edit my first post again, but here is the CORRECT picture for what the spongodes looked like when I got it. It was NOT in fact GSP and then morphed to spongodes...
  12. WTS a few corals and snails

    Oh and someone buying a coral can have this 4" piece of GSP free too
  13. WTS a few corals and snails

    $20...unknown chalice that is purple with neon green eyes $1/snail...I have a dozen trochus snails that have been in my tank since my cycle was done and they have been breeding. I have a whole bunch of baby ones that have been growing for a month or two now and would like to get rid of some of the babies. I could probably part ways with 20 of them or so.

  17. Sand in clam inlet siphon hole

    I have a 5-6" maxima clam that is doing great, but I noticed a little bit ago that my midas blenny crop dusted near the clam with some sand and it kind of looked like a grain or two may have gone in the inlet siphon hole (the mouth) of the clam. Is there anything that I need to do to try to get that out of the clam or will the clam try to expel the grains or what? I have been unable to find ANY information about this online anywhere.
  18. Sand in clam inlet siphon hole

    Ah yes that makes sense. I suppose in the wild they probably get dusted all the time with tides
  19. Sand in clam inlet siphon hole

    Clams make pearls? Cool
  20. Sand in clam inlet siphon hole

    Ok thanks guys! My leopard wrasse just went to sleep in the sand right next to the clam too and made a sandstorm when it dove in. This must be annoying for the clam :mad:
  21. please vote

    I got my vote in! Looks like you have pulled ahead (clap)
  22. 93 gallon Marineland cube

    So I have come back to the hobby after being away for a few years. My last tank was a standard 48" 55 gallon, so this should prove to be a fun upgrade. I am a little rusty on some things and also there are some things that I simply do not know, so I am kind of reviewing and learning at the same time here. I have been trying to be patient and do research on everything so that I do this right from the get go. If you have suggestions or see something that I am doing that's wrong, please let me know. Ok here we go. As the title indicates, this is a Marineland 93 gallon cube 30" x 30" x 24" with corner overflow. I bought this from Jeff @ Cuttlefish and Corals and I must say that I am pretty happy with how he runs his shop. I also got the matching stand, which is on the short side at 26" from very bottom to very top, but I think it will work out OK. I painted the inside of the stand with Kilz primer similar to impur's same tank and vanz. I think this was a great thing to do because it will help keep the moisture out of the wood, thus prolonging the life of the stand eliminating the issue of mold and rotting etc (hopefully). For now, I will be using a 20 gallon long as my sump. The back of the stand is wide open, so the sump tank will stick out a couple of inches, but I am OK with that. I am going to attempt to set up the Herbie method overflow and use the existing PVC that came with the tank for the two upper pipes. Down under, I will be using straight pipes into the sump and the main drain will have a gate valve on it to be able to dial in the Herbie just right. The sump will have three sections - drain from tank, skimmer/fuge, return - and maybe down the road I can add some dosers or reactors of some kind. I already screwed up by not researching what silicone is aquarium safe, so of course as luck would have it, I siliconed my baffles today with the GE type II that is apparently a no no. I will be getting the razor blade out tomorrow to take out the baffles, scrape out the silicone, and re-install them with the GE type I silicone that is recommended. I would like to have a resivoir under there too with ATO water and pump so that I can have that going too. I will be attempting to install my new RODI unit behind my fridge too so that it is close to the tank. As some folks pointed out in another thread, I may have a drain hole in the wall there too that the waste water can maybe go down...I need to look into it to see if it is usable. So without this turning into a novel, here are some pics. I am still working on plumbing, first time doing this myself also, and currently am leak testing the tank. Here is what my sump will more or less look like. I have a Reef Octopus SRO 1000 INT skimmer that I have high hopes for. I also have an acrylic fuge box that I need to get a couple of suction cups for and then I plan to mount in the middle section with the skimmer and have chaeto in it. For the drain pipes, should I be hooking a sump sock to them even though they will be submerged due to being Herbie? Return pump. Hopefully this puts out enough juice. If not, then I need to research a suitable replacement. BAD SILICONE!!! I got the Ocean Revive T247 LED light from Jeff also. I will be getting a 10' 3/4" EMT conduit pipe and a pipe bender from Home Depot and making a light hanger like in these pics. I will then secure the hanger in two places on the back of my stand, but leave it a little loose so that I can just rotate the whole thing out of the way when I need to get my hands in the tank. So that I don't mess up my hardwood floors, I will put some type of pad under the bottom of the pole so it can rotate ok.
