  1. In my experience, these days - it is more common to see ozone run on extremely large tanks i.e. public displays or large in-home works of art. Small tanks can survive without it. I almost feel like ozone is the beat-all-end-all way to deter bacteria or other water-born lifeforms. ^explained it well.
  2. Congratulations on being a father.
  3. I'll take care of it. I'm in Seattle daily. We could talk about your routine and the best way to manage stability in person...or you could just break it down. Both are possible, including having your trusted local fish store maintain it. I've done it a couple times and had a couple aquariums in my life too. I understand your pain.
  4. I'm pretty sure pH and alkalinity are actually quite a bit different in the ocean, especially with people having upwards of 11 dKH. Check-out the health of most public aquariums. It's pretty amazing.
  5. I've had consistent results with Salifert alkalinity test and believe most alkalinity tests are consistently precise, even though they may not be consistently accurate. As long as there isn't aquarium swings, the corals fine. Maybe the aquarium is a 7 dKh and the test shows 9 dKh, but they don't care. Note: Did not watch the video.
  6. As a colorblind person, I know your pain. So, I too had to search for the best alkalinity kit. It's Salifert's Alkalinity test.
  7. I periodically check-out Thingiverse. They have plenty of free designs to offer. Scrapers, decorations, protein skimmer parts and other unique items. https://www.thingiverse.com/search?q=aquarium&dwh=435d6e6baf9af7d
  8. It wouldn't matter at that point if you buy a waterproof LED strip: https://www.ledsupply.com/led-strips/waterproof-12v-led-strip?gclid=CjwKCAjw-7LrBRB6EiwAhh1yX_i10jXdhVbTUsfC2CNJiExKYItH2PR1UA1CmlCcomJhsxy6uGE76hoCMGgQAvD_BwE The heater casing just makes it easily portable.
  9. I asked Dr. Thusen for a quick update.: Tank #1: Tank #2:
  10. Wow! That is a beautiful aquarium. A lot of your questions can be asked on this thread: http://www.pnwmas.org/forums/forum/62-tanks-for-teachers/ Although, I am sure @Flashy Fins will provide assistance no matter the post location. She is the Tanks for Teachers coordinator and does a really good job at it. Also, I am unsure on the depth that Tanks for Teachers provides, but the thread demonstrates good examples for what we have done. I believe we are flexible to most schedules, live-stock, equipment and/or maintenance.
  11. One of us. One of us. One of us. Glad to see some healthy corals. To further spread your coral love, please take a moment and fill out the member map: http://www.pnwmas.org/membermap/ Also, if you can handle those corals, you should join us in future grow-outs. They are some of the most fulfilling coral efforts on the forum. Not only do we make 10-20 frags of a unique species of coral for propagation and vitality, but it's also is a good team effort to get cheap coral.
