  1. Anyone have one of these (or similar)

  2. Desperately need some help

    Someone on here must have one, post in WTB. If you’re feeling courageous, you can get a drill for under $20 from Harbor Freight, and a whole set of glass holesaws from Amazon also for under $20. Look on YouTube, there’s a ton of videos to walk you through it.
  3. Desperately need some help

    I’d be happy to help if you were closer. You should get the overflow box and return that you want first. Then measure the bulkheads that come with them and drill the appropriate holes. That’s the order you need to do this in. Protip on drilling glass, drill starting from the inside if possible. This way if you “chip-out” on the end of the hole, it’s on the bulkhead nut surface instead of the gasket surface inside the tank. It’s also way easier to keep the cut submerged with water during the drilling.
  4. ISO 24w t5 bulbs

    Man, I think I would get another Radion and call it a day.
  5. ISO 24w t5 bulbs

    What size tank is this going over?
  6. ISO 24w t5 bulbs

    FWIW, I’m running a 4x24 ATI with two nanobox 13ups, the leds still shimmer real nice. That’s like a ratio of 2 watts t5 to 1 watt led. I think a radion runs like 170w, so you would need more than like 14 24w t5s to drown out the shimmer.
  7. 3D printed ato float holder

    Cool stuff, have you thought of selling these on shapeways? I bought a printed viewfinder for one of my cameras from them. From my understanding the seller just uploads to shapeways and then they print it and ship it to the buyer. This was news to me that people are doing this.
  8. 100 Gallon Rimless setup

    Awesome dimensions on these, it’s like a short 120.
  9. What are your other hobbies?

  10. Budget pico contest. Who's in?

  11. Music calms the savage beast

    One of my favorite albums, I was 15 when this came out. Please post some of your favorite music in this thread.
  12. Can't lower nitrate

    I wish I could keep my nitrates at 10. Lex has the good info above. stability promotes success
  13. What are your other hobbies?

    Film photography, I have an M3, IIIf, R2M, two Bessa Ls, an F100, Yashica MAT124G, and a Rollei 2.8F. Shooting barebow recurve. I also like messing with cars, I’m in the middle of SASing an 86 Toyota.

  15. Nitrates!

    I would suggest not carbon dosing. Remove half of that chaeto weekly. Also API are probably the worst test kits you can use.
  16. Freshwater peeps?

    Been keeping planted tanks since about 1979, co2 tanks since 1989. Right now I only have a 20g, 5.5g and several emmersed setups. I find it very similar to reefkeeping, SPS (stability promotes success), as is life.
  17. Nice ricordea in stock

  18. Bear with me... I've been drinking.

    Ahh, I couldn’t find that thread, look up Borneman Surge Device.
