  1. Gyre 130 Propellers/Bushings A or B

    Pretty sure it has the extras in the box, let me dig it all out of the garage and get back to you.
  2. Gyre 130 Propellers/Bushings A or B

    PM me your address, I have one with a bad wire, you can have it for the cost of shipping or pickup in Albany for free.
  3. Complete system parting out!

    I’m game, shoot me a PM.
  4. Wtb aqua controller screen

    I got one you can borrow if you just need it for the setup.
  5. Breaking down 120 gallon tank

    I’ll take the ATI if you part things out.
  6. 280g Barrel of monkeys build

    I may be wrong, but I’m fairly certain you don’t want to add a crapload of salt to your mix. Once your ca and alk are elevated to certain level it’s going to start precipitating into an insoluble carbonate.
  7. Need Nano-Cube custom lid

    Any glass shop worth their salt should be able to cut you one.
  8. can i use some 9m old unused sand?

    No sand is best sand.
  9. (SEATTLE) WTB 36x18 Stand

    They have decent metal ones at Petco if you’re ok with an open stand.
  10. Ryan’s 150G DD Marineland Build

    Looking good, super hard to scape cubes. Looks like a little atoll.
  11. FS: Equipment! Cool stuff! 😎Good deals!

    Can you ship the dosing pumps?
  12. Home for Sale!

    Good luck with the sale, that MCM fireplace is too cool.
  13. Low calcium

    Sounds like you are dosing too much alk and not enough calcium. I’m assuming you balanced your levels before you started your 2 part dosing regimen? Do you have a doser or are you dosing manual? 12 dkh is way high IMO, you should be shooting for around 8. http://reefkeeping.com/issues/2006-02/rhf/index.php
  14. Some November pics

    Looking great Carla!
  15. SCA - Tanks and PNP Systems

    I have no affiliation to SCA, I have bought from him in the past and currently run one of their 66g. I am considering their 150g for my next build. I wanted to share, because these are very nice tanks for the price. http://www.scaquariums.com/SCA-150-Gallon-Starfire-Tank-p/sca-150g.htm
  16. Torch dying ?

    It might be expelling zooxanthellae, aka “pooping”. Have you seen any brown stringy stuff? Sometimes happens if the lighting has been changed.
  17. SCA - Tanks and PNP Systems

    Deal of the day on the 150g is on, $800 shipped! http://www.scaquariums.com/dealoftheday.asp
  18. “dreading having to do a maintenance day” and nanos don’t mix well. You might want to look into some form of nutrient export or get more regular with the water changes.
  19. Ryan’s 150G DD Marineland Build

    Look good man, check on that scrubber I think it’s only good for smaller tanks. I just fired up a blob of chaeto in my sump, maybe consider that instead of a scrubber. That center section of the trigger sump would probably work good for a chaeto spot.
  20. Lighting

    I’d be willing to bet a pinky that it isn’t your lighting. Tell us a little more about your tank and water parameters.
  21. Who do you root for, Maxspect or Apex?

    To be fair, my experience with gyres is limited to the first generation, maybe the new ones are better, I don’t know.
  22. Opae ula vase

    I have mine in a 1/2 gallon mason jar. I just top off with ro/di. I tried clado, Java ferns, and other brackish tolerant plants, none of them lasted for me. Only the green algae growing on the substrate has lasted.
  23. Opae ula vase

    If the lid is keeping evaporation down, it is also limiting gas exchange. This means the difference in keeping them alive for a year or two vs. keeping them going for up to twenty years. I’ve had mine for six years.
  24. Who do you root for, Maxspect or Apex?

    I can’t speak to Neptune WAVs, but Gyres are garbage. You might as well get Jebao and replace them every year when they fail. Get a couple MP40s and call it a day.
