  1. Still have an extra one available if anyone needs it Sent from my moto g(7) using Tapatalk
  2. Still looking, can do porch pickup and/or PayPal Sent from my moto g(7) using Tapatalk
  3. Don't mean to hijack but if the poster isn't interested in the nem when it does split I am. Recently did a tank swap and the 50 in my bedroom could use some more nems Sent from my moto g(7) using Tapatalk
  4. Beautiful tank! Curious what you're planning on doing with your 90? Is it already sold? Sent from my moto g(7) using Tapatalk
  5. Yep, they do that when growing another head at times. I had a giant colony of pink hammers that would have the occasional bubble Sent from my moto g(7) using Tapatalk
  6. I have a 10 gallon with a screen, was used for hermits crabs so has some hermit crab stuff in it, it's been sitting outside so it will need a good cleaning but the tank and screen are pretty much new, just dirty from sitting outside. You can have it if you're willing to pick it up in Forest Grove [emoji16] the screen is black and one of those tighter fitting screens. My husband has been bugging me to do something with it lately so you'd actually be doing me a favor lol. Sent from my moto g(7) using Tapatalk
  7. Go with a sump and you will never go back! I started very young with freshwater tanks so was used to having hang on filters, heaters in the tank etc. My first saltwater tank was an old 37 gallon freshwater tank I decided to turn into saltwater, I too was scared of a sump, mostly because I had never had one and hadn't researched them. I'd recommend either going to someone's house that has one setup and have them show you how everything works, seeing it in person is easier to understand than reading about it IMO, or watching videos could help you understand as well. Now looking back it would have been amazing to have sumps in my freshwater tanks, I will never have another tank without a sump. Like someone else mentioned drill holes in your return to break the siphon in case of a power outage and it will stop water continuing to flow in the tank, also not filling the sump all the way and leaving enough space in the sump for the backflow from the overflow with a power outage, you do those things and you're good, putting a lid on your overflow can help too so no fish end up going for ride and potentially clogging the pipes. Doing a visual inspection once a week or so just to make sure everything is in working order is good practice, but don't be scared of a sump! Once you actually have one you will be thrilled with how much cleaner everything looks without hob filters, heaters hanging in the tank, and any HOB skimmer I used to use now seems pretty useless over a good in sump Skimmer Sent from my moto g(7) using Tapatalk
  8. If you haven't checked out SB Reef lights I really like mine, I have a 32" SB Reef Pro with timer and I believe it ran me around ~$300, they have other sizes as well, basic (without timer or Wifi) Pro (with timer) Extreme (with WiFi and timer)10, 18", 22", 32" and they have retrofit kits as well. Plus they come with a two year warranty, they're affordable and the colors look amazing in my opinion. I'm already planning on getting another for my daughter's tank Sent from my moto g(7) using Tapatalk

  11. Gee you can just have some of the water from my bedroom tank [emoji23] was battling 40-80 nitrates at times before I installed an algae scrubber, I really like fat fish so I feed a lot, now Target feeding several times a day. You would think I would have had terrible algae in that tank but I didn't. I wish I had the problem of low nitrates [emoji849] I follow Melevsreef and have heard of others with this "problem" using Brightwell Neo Nitro to dose nitrates with good success. Did all of you with undetectable nitrates start with dry rock??? Sent from my moto g(7) using Tapatalk
  12. They're such cool creatures, my daughter and I were mesmerized by the ones at Paradise a few weeks ago. If I had more asterinas I'd happily give them to you but I've never had issues with them so I rarely find them in my tanks Sent from my moto g(7) using Tapatalk
  13. I love autotopoff.com, a member here actually steered me towards them a few years ago and they're great, I think the last ATO I bought from them I paid around ~$60 for a double float switch with a bracket to mount on my sump, including a little pump. You can build your own, a single or double float switch with or without a bracket and a cheap little pump. The owner was very patient with me and my questions, I've ordered from them four times now and IMO they're probably the cheapest and they ship fast Sent from my moto g(7) using Tapatalk
  14. I was curious about that as well, if the sides and back was going to be painted or not Sent from my moto g(7) using Tapatalk
  15. Oh my gosh that looks amazing! You've created my dream tank lol. Sent from my moto g(7) using Tapatalk
