  1. Dang, I bought a used Bubble Magus for the same price. Wish I would have picked up that 5000! Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
  2. If it were me choosing between a bare, uncycled 30 gal or a 15 gallon refugium with macro and algae, I'm going refugium all day. Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
  3. I'll be honest, this is one of the few places to exchange thoughts and ideas that don't have to be swamped in politics. Sure would be nice to keep it that way. Particularly because not everyone shares your opinions. I think we can all agree it's nice to have a politics free place to hang and chat. At least I think that's the case anyway. Reef on!

  4. Thanks Jeff! I'll have to have you harass CA if we don't hear anything by the end of next week [emoji16] Haha. I remember you mentioning those at our last meeting. I'll look forward to seeing them! Thanks Sid, appreciate the comments! "Long thought out," yes. "Well thought out?" Still yet to be determined. [emoji38] Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
  5. Thanks! I believe it's quarter inch, not sure on weld method. @spectra would have to provide that answer. Yes, it is powder coated.
  6. My sump is across the living room in a closet so I don't think I'll be enclosing the stand. I'm going to maintain the open style. In fact, I have extra laminate that matches my floor and I'm going to place a board on the bottom of the stand and then place laminate over that. That way it will match seamlessly with the house flooring. The only thing seen under tank will be 4 drains and a return line that all go into the floor. Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
  7. I've mentioned it to a few of y'all, but I got a new tank in the works. Custom sump and tank are still a couple weeks away, but I got the stand today. So I figured I may as well show that thing off. Stand was built by forum member Scott (@Spectra). He did an amazing job on it. It's 2" rolled steel. Welds and seams look immaculate. I went with a 40 inch height because I like to make life hard on myself as I reach around inside the tank [emoji3][emoji3] Seriously though, I really like the taller appearance and it'll make the tank sit at a better height for viewing. Stand is 97" x 37" (tank is 96x36 not including trim). Tank will be 24" tall for a total of 360 gallons. It is being built by Custom Aquariums out of Wisconsin. Shout out to Jeff at CNC for helping see that order through. Sump is being built by Crystal Reef Aquatics. It will be 60 x 22 x 16 for max capacity of 85 gallons. Probably operate with a third of that, of course. I will create a thread for the tank and sump once they arrive, but for now here's some stand pictures. Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
  8. Speaking as someone who once had a little entry way tank, my advice would be to strongly consider whether you will really want a tank there long-term. Unless there is some seated area that allows for viewing that tank, it'll hardly ever get attention. Entryways are just that, places to pass through. Doesn't answer your question, I know, but hopefully you've given that some good thought. Wish you the best! Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
  9. So it's more expensive to buy everything together than it would be if someone split them up??? Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
  10. Wrasses are pretty prone to hiding when they are new. Whether that be in the sand bed or within holes in the rockwork. I'm not entirely certain on the cleaner wrasse specifically. I wouldn't be too worried just yet. There are countless stories of a wrasse living in the sand for a couple weeks before it starts coming out. On a side note, even if the wrasse is there, I'd consider another approach to dealing with ich. Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
  11. Sounds good. Well let me know if you're still in need in a few weeks. I could get it to you pretty cheap. Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
  12. When do you need it? I have a glass 180 that I'll be taking down in a month or so. It's got dual internal overflows, but you could remove them and cover the holes if you wanted. Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
  13. Good to know we got a couple units in the club. I think we'll all be eager to hear your personal reviews. Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
  14. That's hilarious. Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
  15. I can't believe you have any extra time on your hands, seeing as you're currently building the stand for my new tank.... [emoji16][emoji6] Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
