    I did some major electrical and other contracting to make my man cave "safe" for the reef. Changed out the wood flooring for ceramic tiles, and re-routed many electrical circuits and upgraded and moved the panels in the garage. Then I added a cut off to switch critical circuits over to a generator when the power goes off. This was one big step short of a whole house set up. This hobby is way more expensive than I expected. Yes, you all warned me, but I did not listen.

    Gee, if you can pull this off for less the 10K, I will be envious.

    Wow, now if only this feature is available in the older Apex Gold. I doubt it.

    any fishermen here

    Hmmm, 30 outings for one fish. Boy can I relate. That is why I am now an avid trout flyfisherman.

    Hmmm, realized that your big fish would be way to large for my small tanks.

    Just curious since I am an imbecile with computers, and even forums. Why can you not receive messages? How does that work?

    Algae everywhere

    Update on the dino issue. The H2O2 knocked out the algae, but it came back a week later. Now dosing again. But I read that the likely cause in the first place was zero phosphates and nitrates. To address this, I have been dosing Brightwell Aquatics Neophos. The phosphate does go up, but drops down to zero overnight. Puzzling since there was no visible algae in the tank when I was using the Neophos.
  12. I am bringing a bag of unopened Kalness media to the meeting. You name your price. Free if you want. I will be leaving early so look me up when you arrive. Light brown Tee, and jeans. Paul

    WTB well used band saw

    Hoping to help you off load your back up diamond blade band saw, or one that is nearly worn out and you need an excuse to replace it.

    Few high end equipment for sale

    Too bad you are not selling the N18. I understand it is better to have a algae reactor slightly smaller than needed, rather than slightly larger.
