  3. Nwfragfest Guest Speaker! Laura Simmons!

    Great presentation. I was really surprised to learn that cyanide and blasting is still done! I don't know why but I thought that all stopped in the early 00's. Thanks Kim and everyone else that made this happen! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  5. I can help anytime/anywhere you need me. 7am might be a stretch, but put me wherever you need me. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. Continuous duty right? Does the manufacturer mention anything about duty cycle or tubing life? Are you going to mount it over open section of sump in case of tubing leak at some point? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Need some replacement lighting help.

    I've had great luck with black boxes too. You have to careful not to blast your corals with too much light though with that size tank Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Great thread Jeremy! Interested to hear how that next level pump works Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. How to Prune Large Corals

    Travis at Upscales uses a screwdriver to snap pieces off, and I think it lessens the possibility of breaking the whole coral off. You wedge in between branches and one will break before the other. I've broke off complete corals trying to use bone cutters when that big Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. internal or external skimmer

    It's not if, but when the cup overflows. There are so many things that can make the skimmer go nuts, to me it's not worth having it outside the sump. How new are the venturi design reviews you're reading? Ive had Venturi and downdraft designs in the past and the current method of Venturi on pump inlet has blown away those other methods ime Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Another big thanks to upscales!

    Great looking setup Randall! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Anyone selling a nuvo setup?

  13. Anyone selling a nuvo setup?

    I've got an eheim 9g cube tank that might work nice for the snake. Free if you want to give it a try. 14" tall x 12" square I believe Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. Tapatalk status

    I was having trouble so I deleted the Tapatalk group. When I went to grab it again, it only has the version through Reef Frontiers, and all entries are 2 years old. I didn't know we had a mobile version of the site, so I'm going to give that a try instead.
  15. FS Hikari frozen food

    Mark, I'll take a good chunk of those. I'll text you tomorrow and come get them if you're available.

    Yay! I'm in Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  17. Peristaltic pump

    None of the aquarium peristaltic pumps are designed for 24/7 duty. They will burn up quickly. Like mattv says, used cole palmer medical grade pumps are good for this. I'd recommend researching on r2r to find significant amounts of info in this Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  18. Calcium Reactor - Advice Dialing In

    You need to bump up effluent rate until your alk stays constant. Then adjust alk to desired level with some alk half of two part solution. What size tank? What type of calcium reactor media? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  19. What is this loveable joy squish!

    Aren't they lumpfish? I've seen them at Newport aquarium and long beach aquarium Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  20. Calcium reactor fitting

    Tigard Home Depot should have what's needed. If not, lowes is two miles further. I might have parts here if you wanted to swing by later Sunday afternoon/evening Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  21. Snakes

    My daughter is ready to sell her snakes. We have a ball python and an amelanistic corn snake, both about two years old. Each has 20g aquarium with hides, heater pads, and water dishes. Looking for probably $65 ea. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  22. Calcium reactor fitting

    I'd do jg to jg with short piece of tubing. Definitely will be the easiest and shortest option Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  23. Sasquatch Cube

    The squatch is back!!! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  24. Gyre Pump Considerations

    I'm running two 230s in my 90g, 100% forward /80% reverse opposing each other for 10 seconds each. Very happy with them. And the controller is pretty impressive, so can't say I'd recommend going through the trouble of hooking into apex. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  25. Guest speaker ideas?

    Mike Paletta! or Sanja Joshi! Or both, and have it at someones house where we're all just hanging out around an aquarium...
