  1. 93 gallon acrylic cube FREE!!!

    Cut that sucker down to 6" tall, bam! frag tank.
  2. 200 gallon deep dimension

    I've seen some nice builds from these guys: http://www.oceansbydesign.com
  3. BBQ thread, what's on the grill?

    TJ tritip, I have the new thermometer and pulled it @ 130, I think I will pull at 125 next time. It was really good. Thanks spectra for the thermometer suggestion, makes a world of difference from the crummy analog one I've been using.
  4. Need some replacement lighting help.

    Pick up a black box, hard to beat for the price.
  5. Tank (Large) on "Silent Floor" Joists

    I wouldn't trust it without at least scabbing it and pier or jack supports. Those joists are not engineered for the type of loading you are planning on putting on it. Code calls for 40 psf, with the 300g, you are getting close to 200psf.
  6. 200 gallon deep dimension

    Steel stand?
  7. 200 gallon deep dimension

    This will go quick.
  8. Looking for 35 inch ai rail kit

    That picture was from a thread on RC. The guy in that thread said it was from Europe something something. Should be fairly easy to make though. Maybe @pdxmonkeyboy could help ya?
  9. Looking for 35 inch ai rail kit

    Are you looking to hang it, or fab something that screws onto the side plates of the ATI? I can see a slick solution made of acrylic that bolts onto the ATI side plates. I guess it depends on how high you want the lights.
  10. They make adjustable ones too, also you can swap out hose diameter for smaller flow rates.
  11. Anybody use these? http://www.chemworld.com/85MPHP17-Stenner-Pump-p/Stenner-85MPHP17.htm?gclid=EAIaIQobChMInL2xgZHL1gIVB5R-Ch3Ewwy5EAQYAiABEgIIIvD_BwE I was doing some work at a small town and the operator swears by these pumps.
  12. Looking for 35 inch ai rail kit

    That's what grinders are for, hah.
  13. Looking for 35 inch ai rail kit

    I've had good luck in the past fabbing stuff out of aluminum using those low temp rods. Should be a simple build, and you can cut aluminum with most wood blades. http://www.homedepot.com/p/Bernzomatic-AL3-Aluminum-Brazing-and-Welding-Rods-334491/203710179
  14. Looking for 35 inch ai rail kit

    Are you against using the bent conduit method?
  15. September 2017 ATA Meeting Pics

    Looks like I missed another great meet.
  16. Black box leds are awesome!

    Photons are photons, Sanjay will tell you the same thing. Also, I've never heard of a D120 catching on fire.
  17. Opae ula shrimp

    I only have like 10-15 and they are all my original shrimp. You can get them on eBay for a decent price.
  18. Opae ula shrimp

    It's just a jar with some eco-complete substrate in it. That's it, all I do is top it off. It sits on an east facing window sill and that keeps enough algae in there for them to eat.
  19. Opae ula shrimp

    I have a small colony in a large mason jar. I've had them for almost 8 years now.
  20. Classic MH Pendant Lights

    Probably Hamilton M57s. Do you ever make further south, closer to Albany?
  21. Classic MH Pendant Lights

    What does it say on the ballast?
  22. If there is one chore I hate in this hobby

    Probably one month if they are coming out once a week.
  23. What do you think did this?

    There's one particular type of emerald crab that is reef safe, and I think two other kinds that tear $&!@ up. You may have one of that bad ones.
  24. Classic MH Pendant Lights

    Look like Hamiltons. I had one with the 10000K bulb on my first setup. Are those m57s? I'm interested.
  25. Looking for starburst cap

    I can frag you a piece if you can't find it local. I'm in Albany.
