  1. Opae ula vase

    Looking good! You guys are inspiring me to start a bigger setup for mine, maybe a UNS cube with a led light and a bubbler.
  2. xmas 5g AIO

    I’ve had this running on my nightstand for a little over a year. It’s an Advanced Acrylics tank with the following parts: IKEA led light modded with 3-up from Steve’s LEDs Sicce Syncra 1.0 pump Hydor 7.5w heater Apex Jr. My three year old feeds it flake food probably twice a week and it’s only had one 100% water change about 4 months ago. Top off with RO/DI. These little simple tanks I think are my favorites. All the stuff that grows on the rocks: pods, mini-brittle stars, tiny red tube worms, ball nems, vermitid snails, sponges, and bubble algae. It all seems to stay in balance somehow.
  3. Why is the reef tank not depleting calcium?

    Maybe your test kit is fubar, maybe something else. I would suggest just firing up the reactor and monitoring alk. The calcium will be there if the reactor is keeping the alk consistent. 30g is kind of small for a reactor, have you considered dosing two part with a doser?
  4. Looking for a quiet return pump, 500-700 gph.
  5. What do you do?

    I’m a civil engineer that specializes in water and wastewater. The bulk of my time is spent engineering water and wastewater treatment plants and distribution/collection systems for <10,000 population cities throughout the state of Oregon. I also do master planning and funding assistance for the same projects that I design.

  9. Well I guess I'm back... Again haha

  10. Current USA eFlux Wave Pump

    Looks like Chinese garbage to me. Don’t get me wrong, I love Chinese garbage, just frustrating when it goes fubar in 9 mos.

    You ever make it further south, I like the acan but not enough for a 150 mile drive.

    That rating is for 30” of head (vertical distance) not a 30” length. I have a brand new one you are welcome to test out if you’re interested.
  14. Ricordea ID?

    Anybody know what these are? I got them in a trade years ago, they just now started going nuts in my nano.
  15. Ricordea ID?

    I think you are right. I’m going to let them grow out a bit and then I’ll hook you guys up if you are interested.
