    Aiptasia Laser

    It's very tempting on my part to get one but given the number of snails on my rocks I think I would just accidentally lightsaber my tank to death. 😵 I think I'll just have to experience it vicariously.

    Haha that crackling is intense. I've been really debating getting one of these for vermitid snails. Have you tried it on them?

    Disaster button stuck on repeat!

    My bet is calcium carbonate. Yikes, what a week! We've all been there to one degree or another.

    Disaster button stuck on repeat!

    Whoa! That's brutal. Sorry that happened. Did you test salinity/alk to see if something was out of whack? Too late for those corals but forewarned is forarmed in the future.

    WTB - (Urgent) - Reeflo Dart Pump(s)

    Oh no! I don't have anything that big on hand, unfortunately. Sorry to hear about your troubles. Do local shops even carry pumps that big usually? Worst case I suppose there is always the overnight option if you order soon. Hope it works out for you.

    Ocean Swipe 360!

    Jeremy, you can't open this door and not walk through it. 😇 Let's see this thing in action! I remember seeing this around probably around the time you ordered it. My big question is how does it do on coralline algae?

    December 2018 Frag Swap Thread

    My sps apocalypse in parrotfish form has ended. Anyone got some easy one's they'd like to trade for $dollars$? Stags/spongodes/monti cap/digi/birdsnest type things would be great. I just need to repopulate the top of my arch where I took the most damage. It's weird because I had several acro's make it through all this but lost every single easy sps. Guess they didn't like their flesh being forcibly stripped off by that beak lol. 😥

    Did I Make a Mistake?

    Wife > reef. I don't know about you but mine is a lot nicer to me than the fish are.

    Really amazing setup! The level of automation in particular is impressive.

    How is that hanging kit attached to the ceiling? Looks really slick.

    Chaeto/Macro share

    I unfortunately do not. I'm sure there are plenty of very local reefers to you though that could spare some.

    Chaeto/Macro share

    New from Salem, OR

    Welcome! Glad to see another Salem reefer down here. I think your plate is a pavona cactus coral. Really neat structure when it grows. There's a few of us down in the area and you can feel free to give me a shout if you need help.

    Greg's Red Sea Peninsula 650 Build Thread

    Not one to be algae-shamed, I cleaned the glass! Lot of natural light hitting the sides in this room, hence the cyano.
  22. Latest Photo dump at end of page 4 from 17apr18... Hi everybody and thanks for checking out my thread! Pictures will get added to the end of this OP as they are added in the thread. That will hopefully make it easy for future readers to just see the pictures in chronological order. First step, tear down to the subfloor and put hardy board down and then tile it. For those wondering about the weight and joist questions in a previous thread, the tank will mostly evenly straddle two engineered joists so no worries. Big thanks again to @spectra for helping to solve that issue. Gear: Return - Jabaeo Sine Wave DC-10000 Skimmer - Reef Octopus Classic 200 Internal 8" Flow - Unsure, will start with what I have on hand but probably a Gyre XF-270 and whatever else if that's not enough. I am trying to avoid putting any pumps on the far wall. We'll see if that's realistic. Water Mixing/Changing - These will be hard plumbed up through the floor of the office and be a permanent fixture in the stand. Waste line goes back through the floor, across the top of the garage, through the wall and into the storm drain. What this means is that hopefully I can turn on a small pump upstairs for a few seconds to start the drain siphon, empty the sump and then turn on the pump downstairs to refill it with new saltwater. How this is going to work is largely dependent on how the sump is configured etc. The main gist is that water changes are going to be soooooo much easier. edit 28Dec17: RO/DI is permanently installed and is sourcing from upstairs laundry room to downstairs garage mixing station. edit 4Jan18: Floor is done. Rockwork is more or less how I want it. Plumbing is complete. Tank is being picked up today! Edit 8Jan18: 12jan18: 13jan18: 22jan18: 25jan18: new light. Aqua Helios R120 15apr18
