    Hello!

    I’ve creeped around this site long enough I figured I should say hello. I’m a Portland native and iv kept tanks most of my life. Even got to work at the world of wet pets in high school. Currently, I have a lackluster 120 with a handful of small sps colonies. I recently purchased a house. So now it’s time to figure out how to move and upgrade the system now that my wife and I and no longer renting. Thanks, Sean Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Hello!

    Yes I was just at cuttlefish and saw the Red Sea peninsula 160. It was gorgeous. More importantly my wife liked it! So the plan is to get one for the new house. I have a drilled 60gal laying around. My plan was to get it running in the garage of the new house using water and rock from my current system. Then move my coral to the 60 gal cube. Then slowly transfer to the red sea reefer. Then sell some of my old equipment. Which would mainly just be the tank (truvu), stand, sump, and ATI 6 bulb 60in T5s. Plan on switching to the Ai leds. It scary moving my coral so much but don’t see anyway around it. Thanks for all the feedback! Glad to be apart of this community! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Chasing Coral

    The part when the entire reef turned intense fluorescent colors right before bleaching made me think of some of the colors I’ve seen in ULNS systems. Anyone else think of that? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    New Red Sea 160 gallon tank.

    Sweet tank! I have been thinking of getting a red sea reefer for awhile now. You have any thoughts on the res sea route vs a traditional DIY? Personally iv learned im not as a handy is I’d like to think I am as my current tank looks like a science experiment in our living room and my wife is reaching a breaking point with it. Thanks!

    Back in the game: 125 Reef (re)build!

    Sweet tank. I'm very impressed by the clown tang. They have always been my favorite tang but I have been to scared to pull the trigger. Have you had any aggression issues?

    Rimless VS Euro-braced?

    My mom has a rimless. Its really pretty when everything is clean but fish keep jumping out so where adding a mess and top kinda ruining the rimless look. Go euro brace

    Fish for Biocube?

    Id honestly get rid damsel before adding anything new. Im assuming the damsel is a juvi right now but once he matures he could really create some havoc. Also i would not recomoned adding a yellow tang an algea grazer with a lawnmower blenny also an algea grazer in a small tank. The tang would stess over the feeing competition and it would not end well. Id add a midas blenny to get some activity towards the middle and top of the tank. They are beautiful swimmers. Alot of the fish being discussed here are jumpers and the biocubs dont come with lids

    Koran Angel with fin deterioration and lumps

    Recently went through this with an juvi emperor angelfish. Unfortunately I lost him and think is was mainly because I kept trying different treatments and finally found one that killed him. Based on the pics I agree is looks like lymphocytes. In which case you just want to make sure the fish is not stressed. A slightly larger quarantine with some rock to feel secure and lowering the salinity could do wonders. I would not panic unless the fishes appetite is decreasing

    ATI worth the money?

    ​ I was running leds and switched to a 6 bulb ati with the exact bulb combo your thinking. Overall iv been happy with the switch. Creates a nice ice blue look. Way better growth than I ever got with the leds. However, as some who enjoys my tanks on the bluer side, the beauty of the led blue with the shimmer can't be replicated with T5s. I missed it so much I now run blue leds with my T5s. Also, helps with dawn/dusk. One thing I did not consider before I made the switch is that T5s give out way more heat than the LEDs. Way less than MH but significantly more than LEDs. Their heat has created some issues I never dealt with the LEDs.
