    Lost my coral funds to speed camera :(

    Just out of curiosity, does the ticket have a picture of your face? If it doesn't you can get out of it with a letter. Happend to me in LV by the school. If they don't have your face they can't prove you were driving and you legally don't have to disclose who was driving your car. Saved me about $150

    Bubbles in Calcium Reactor

    Also, did you burp it when you started it? Typically if you left some air in there it's going to take waaay longer for the excess to dissipate as you are also adding CO2 to the mix as well. Easiest way I found was to add a little 3 way and on/off valve at the highest point on the recirc to get it throughly de-gassed prior to turning on the CO2.

    Used this as a fuge long ago, has a single 1" hole with bulkhead and plumbing. Glass is a little foggy but could possibly be cleaned up, more ideal for filtration.. Free for the taking! If it's not gone by next weekend, it's going to the dumps

    Cured live rock f/s

    SOLD I've got a large tote of love rock in the garage I'd like gone. There is at least 75 lbs, probably more like 100. I have given it all a Muriatic Acid and Bleach bath. It is currently in saltwater with Prime in it. There is a few pumps keeping it circulated. There is a mix of Fiji, Tonga, and other misc and a large shelf piece. Looking for $75, need it gone ASAP. Can't deliver sorry. Will post pics later.

    Need help deciding on skimmer!

    Ive always liked DC skimmers myself but if I had to choose between those two I'd go with the SRO. Only things I use the adjustability for are fine tuning and on the rarer occasion I use a medication like chemi clean. With a DC pump I can turn the speed down to the lowest so I'm not skimming out anything but still oxygenating the water while treatment goes on. I also like that DC ramps up slowly and typically alleviates the need for a delay when restarting your system from a shutdown. Typically they are a little quieter also but the BBs are going to be close. The bubble blaster pump will likely run longer than the DC that skims uses (im pretty sure they are just Jebao pumps). Plus long term you could always retrofit a DC pump on the SRO, you won't have any other options with the skimz.

    ATO......how do you do yours

    My reefkeeper has a float that triggers an aqualifter to pump from a 5 gal container. Same system runs a float on my skimmate container in case the skimmer goes warp 10 and overflows the collector. As far as my RODI goes, it always needs flushed prior to production so if it was direct to the tank I'd be worried about TDS creep unless you get a timed flush valve to keep it fresh (seems like a blatant waste of water but maybe that's just me).

    Reef safe silicone?

    Went through this recently...the issue is there is "100%" silicone that does and does not contain mildew inhibitors. GE type 1 is good to use, GE type 2 is not. Lots of debaits but personally I'd just buy aquarium specific stuff and not worry about it. Aqueon sells some on Amazon. Cost wise they are within a few dollars...why risk all your corals to save a few bucks?!? The issue also is if your running a bead for a baffle or seam the cure time is NOT what the bottle says. It will take longer to cure the inside than the outside as air exposure is what causes the cure. Most people wait 2 weeks to be safe instead of the 24 hours most products say.

    Site Is Going Down Tuesday March 7!!!!

    Weird thing I noticed...before you could use iPhone emojis and they worked. When I look back in old threads where I used them they have been replaced with ????? not a huge deal since the emojis on here work better than previously on my phone, but something odd none the less.

    Is my Skkye Lite 18 OK for SPS?

    I think the issue you'll run into is not keeping it alive but keeping any sort of color it's supposed to have. Growth will likely be slow as well. A 30 gal is a pretty small tank, there are lots of budget minded solutions for lighting it if that's what's holding you back from replacing the lighting.

    tank and stand 30 gal - FREE

    Free My dad has had this tank forever and they haven't used it in years so he wants it gone. The tank has a small chip/crack on one corner. It held water fine last time it was used. Because of this, it's free but you must take all. Was always used as a freshwater tank and has some custom lids he made. Had an older tube light The stand is actually pretty amazing for its size LOL! My dad made it out of box steel and welded it up. It was painted flat black. Has a shelf half way up. The piece of acrylic has a little spot that sticks out where he had a canister sitting on the RHS. Could be cut off if you wanted. Stand 36.5 x 14 x 29 T Tank 36x12.25x 16.75T Again, must take all. PM me if interested. Thanks!
