  1. use to be my old garage frag tank, AI sol Blue, 2 HOB, heater, stand $80? Obo
  2. Wish I drove, I'd come grab it right now. Would work well as a garage tank for my RBTAs. Hope it finds a home.
  3. Sounds good, it's not going anywhere and I tend to have more every few weeks.
  4. I have a soccer ball sized lump in my garage you can have, I've been meaning to break down the tank. I'm in NE PDX near the airport.,
  5. I have an MP10ES and an MP10ES Wireless, both with aftermarket power supplies. Both have 2012 production dates and bad wet sides, they've been sitting around and I'm in need of some cash ASAP. Both for $140 or best offer, just looking to get a fair price for them. Pickup in NE Portland near 158th & Sandy. Shoot me a PM.
  6. Just an update, I dropped it one point over the week and now my frogspawn and lobos don't look happy. 😞
  7. I've got more cheato, anyone need some?
  8. That's what I read in some of my research, it's kind of like a drug high, not worth chasing, there are better things to spend you time on.
  9. I did recalibrate the probe and I recently got the Salifert test kit because all I had around was an old API kit. All 3 confirm. I can see a slight spike when the ATO kicks on but then back to the prior reading. I do mix my own SW, a mix of Kent reef and Reef Crystals. I may back off on the kalk for a bit see if it drops. I'll look over Randy's site, thank you for the suggestion. Overall the tank looks good except for a few chalices that just haven't done well, haven't lost a fish in a year either. My RBTAs keep splitting so I'm not too stressed, just seemed high to me, I'd lik
  10. I've been battling with high pH latey. Between 8.3-8.6 (max 8.7) depending on the time of day. (Apex lab probe and Salifert test). I dose Kalk2+ in my top off. Ca: 480 Mg:1480 Alk:8.1 10 hour ramped light cycle with fuge light overlapping by an hour. I've been adding a bit of vinegar every few days to bring it down but it seems to creep right back up. Should I be concerned?
  11. Years back when I lived in LA and picked up stuff from customs I'd never had no problem with chalices or acans. Quick acclimation and in a few months I fragged. We had 3 tanks at home and 220 in the office. The current stuff is tank cultured from my understanding and I'm failing. It bums me out.
  12. Thank you for your input. My understanding is that receding normally mean tissue loss. See the pic above. Parts of the structure are showing though. I've tested every two days, Alk is consistently 8.9. I do have Kalk+2 in my top off which dumps into my fuge for a slower mix.
