  1. Hello PNWMAS! Couple things going on here. I'm in search for a small drilled cube to replace my hydroponic tray i initially planned to fill with frags. Sadly that never happened and basically it worked as a fuge and grew tons of algae but its also home to my pond baskets that house all my nems, unfortunately I've had to put my pair of clowns in this tray due to other tank mates in the display and i just can't keep them in there anymore, i never actually planned to have them in there as long as they have been. Plan is to acquire a small drilled cube, get them and the frag tray out of there and put them in with the 16-17 nems they deserve. Now right at the very moment im just trying to get some feelers out there and try and form a plan. I do need to find a solution to this problem around the beginning of the month, if i can make it until the end off the month it wont be as critical being I'm still having issues with my Dc12000 that quits a few times a day and night and right now it cant keep the overflow box filled at full power so when it finally goes, the nems and clowns have nowhere to go so to speak. A RW-20 that would only run about 20% died two days ago assuming the Dc-12000 will share the same fate soon. So if i can get these pumps ordered up before they die i'll definitely be on the lookout for the cube, Nothing fancy just sound, very sound. Thanks all !
  2. What Jeabo was that? My 12000 is going to die at any moment.

  4. SALT

    Some of the things to consider when picking a salt that might help are.. Knowing what kind of animals you might want to keep. Having a set parameter goal in mind for the "big 3" Alkalinity,Calcium and Magnesium. Try to pick a salt that most closely matches your target parameters when mixed so when the time comes for your scheduled water changes it will be easier to maintain stability. Total water volume, frequency of water changes. I use Kent myself for most of these reasons. Hope this helps
  5. 2 Jebao RW-20 wavemakers w/controllers

    Would you sell the extra controller? I think mine might be burnt out, i can only seem to get about 25% out of it if that.

  9. ATS design, possible workshop

    That was the plan when i realized how much easier it would be to just go over to Tap and buy the pieces rather than trying to cut up a old tank to make one. I'm sure i'll still need some help from someone who knows how to make them and how to set it up properly which is what really interest me about the workshop idea.
  10. Shout out to Zoa Collector in HI

    Has he nipped anything? One of my favorites!
  11. ATS design, possible workshop

    That's nearly the exact size i was trying to cut up my old acrylic tanks to make! I can't access any of my saws so your workshop just might be right up my alley.

  15. Silencer for drain

    I remember that! Didn't you end up having to use a metal coat hanger to get it out? Yep it's unbelievably important to keep all critters out of the drains especially with all the gate/ball valves we have on our systems.
  16. Silencer for drain

    Go to Lowes or HD and pick up some gutter guard and cut a small piece and roll it and stick it in there leaving it sticking out of the water a bit, this will quiet it down a little and will also keep fish and snails out.

  20. 3.5" Yellow Tang

    Right before i removed him, notice one of my clowns up in the corner. I'm starting to look into replacing the aquaponic flood tray with a frag tank and keep him but that might take some time so i'm still trying to find him a new home.

  22. Chaeto disintegrating

    My Chaeto has been disintegrating. I'm not sure whats going on, Holly being the awesome person she is gave me a couple nice clumps of very healthy Chaeto and within a couple days it just exploded in growth then about 2 weeks later I've been noticing it getting smaller and smaller. Po4 undetectable with new Salifert. No3 25ppm Salifert. Been dosing Vibrant twice a week. Also ran out of gfo and put some phosguard in my filter sock until the gfo arrived.
  23. Chaeto disintegrating

    When i was reading about Vibrant on RC i thought peoples macros were ok. Maybe i'm confusing the Bryopsis thread with the Vibrant thread. I guess i need to go back and read the thread again and toss what little bit is left. Will be on the hunt for Chaeto once again and discontinue Vibrant for now. Found a thread on R2R with the creator mentioning it several times. Thanks for the tip!
  24. Cell phone pictures

    Not sure what i use is called or where it came from for that matter I wish i could be more help. I was walking past my kitchen counter and saw this thing sitting there, i was thinking some junk mail. It didn't take me long to get curious and go look at some coral with it and the amber lens makes the corals pop for sure but more importantly it made it possible to get a picture that somewhat represents what it actually looks like although a bit exaggerated. My old iphone4s needs this thing! Blues w/no filter Blues+White w/no filter Blues w/ filter
