    Forest Fire digis frags

    Great looking color @Optimusprime3605 Mine grows great, but loses all the green. Any tips for a guy on how to bring it back? It was stunning at first, I am babysitting for @ssappington

    Flower anemone spawning?

    That is so awesome, hope ya get babies!
  5. No worries, good luck! They are just sitting here, available when you need them.
  6. Quite a few of us will do shipments with each other when the weather is mild. Overnight is pretty cheap with USPS priority if you are in WA / OR usually. Post up some pics to fire up the interest!
  7. A trailer with some tie downs will work for sure. You could probably get these into any SUV or mini van with the seats down as well. They are not too crazy big, but big enough you don't want to drive all this way for nothing!
  8. Roughly 55" Long 32" Wide 30" deep Don't mind all the debris, that's why I keep em upside down! Should be very clean on the inside.
  9. I will go measure Chris, just a sec...
  10. I have a power head in box I think too, always keep a spare. LMK. You will need a truck to pick these guys up, I am around tonight and tomorrow. Might have a spare heater too, can dig around in the reef pile if you need. You can PM me and we can exchange cell numbers. Wishing you the best, so stressful! Livestock does not love living in stock tanks, but it is less stress than a complete move for sure. You won't have your skimmer and dosing etc etc. Good luck and sorry!
  11. I have some stock tanks you can borrow Chris if you need them. 4 I think, 100 gallons each. Just for stuff like this...

    ATO Pump Suggestion

    Same here! Always looking to spend less because this hobby can sure add up! That's all I used to use on the 450 gallon system until moving the RODI downstairs a level. From downstairs, could not get 4 aqualifters to do the job, gave up and went with one of these 36 dollar peristaltic pumps: https://www.amazon.com/DC12V-Peristaltic-dosing-Tygon-deliver/dp/B01DER02OE These are so darn reliable and powerful, but are noisy. I also use them to run the calcium reactor and the kalk topoff. All from the garage below. They require a 12v wall wart to power, but those should be cheap or free if they are laying around... I also use dual aqualifters on my son's tank for about 6' of head. They work great, but I do occasionally have to replace or rebuild an aqualifter. The avast is kind of a plug and play for those who can justify the expense. Quiet, powerful and ready to go...

    ATO Pump Suggestion

    A peristaltic pump would be good for this job. They can pump a long ways through very small tubing. Here is a pretty nice one: https://www.avastmarine.com/products/peristaltic-pump-for-auto-top-off we have always felt that peristaltic pumps are the best choice when moving small amounts of water. Quality peristaltic pumps, also known as dosing pumps, provide very consistent flow rates and require little maintenance. Their anti-siphon characteristic is an important feature concerning evaporation replacement. This allows you to place your top-off reservoir anywhere in relation to your tank, sump, or kalk stirrer. With traditional water pumps, situating the top-off reservoir above the level of your sump could lead to siphoning and overflow unless specifically designed otherwise. With a peristaltic pump, you get a precise amount of water delivered exactly where you want it, and not a drop more. Our pump is capable of delivering water at up to 20 feet of head pressure. That's several stories up or down, and hundreds of feet horizontally. No need to have your top-off reservoir under your tank. You can keep it out in the garage on the other side of the house!

    Fun with 3D printer

    Hi Daniel, That looks like a nice machine. Good build volume, bed levelling and all metal hot end. Nice! So far here... 2 MP Mini deltas, 1 MP Maker select (wanaho i3 clone) and... standing far above the crowd, a Prusa Mk3. The mk3 literally blows these others out of the water is quality and reliability. It is a truly print and forget printer. Love it. Those are very nice upgrades you have done. I do gotta check out the oiler, I do get clogs on 3/4 printers. On the mini deltas and the maker I have done a ton of upgrades, none on the mk3. The filament detector is so nice. Love that for loading/unloading and resuming prints. One cool thing the mk3 does is color changes, super nice feature also. It beeps when its time to change, unloads existing filament, loads new, extrudes until color change and resumes the print. Tried Slic3r, Cura various versions, and Prusa control. Loving Cura 3.3.1 with octo print. Cura has an incredible number of settings too, so you may enjoy tweaking there as well! After the prusa though, I am kinda tired of tweaking and just want to spend more time designing and printing, less time fiddling!
