  1. Tiny Tank, Tiny Budget Contest

    Ive been hit hard with cyano. I have tried manually removing but just keeps coming back. I should have some chemi clean showing up monday, worked great on my other tank over a year ago. Hopefully it will have cleard up by next update so I can continue adding a few corals. Frogspawn and hammer have settled in nicely and opening fully now and mushroom continuing to grow.
  2. Hanna HI755 vs HI772 ALK Reageant

    According to BRS it works for both checkers. https://www.bulkreefsupply.com/hi772-26-alkalinity-checker-reagents-hanna.html
  3. Out with the tiny, in with the slightly less tiny

    This looks like it is going to be a really cool build. Definitely following.
  4. Cyano need ideas

    I have used chemiclean 2 times and never saw any negative effects when using recommended dosage. Cyano has never returned after second treatment over a year ago.

    3/31 Update Added a mushroom last weekend, it is looking happy and plump. Yesterday I fragged some frogspawn and a hammer I have in my 170 and threw them in. They have opened a little today but still pretty unhappy. Hopefully they will settle in over the next few days. Later this week I will add some zoa’s to the section with the mushroom. Have a little patch of cyano but it appears to be going away over the last few days

    Me (Andy) and my beautiful goofy wife Kayt on our trips to Seattle and Vegas this year. We enjoy kayaking, camping, disc golf, and anything outdoors. I also play my share of video games and drink plenty of ipa’s.

    Wish I would have read earlier posts a little closer, didnt see you were doing a betta falls I kind of feel like an [language filter] now. Sorry for doubling up on same tank. I am going for softies in lower section (mushroom and zoas) LPS in center (small hammer and frogspawn) SPS in top left (small frag of branching psammocora and red plating monti). Hopefully can keep up with alk/cal demand with a turkey baster water change every other day. If I cant keep up will probably swap with flower nem.
  9. Lots of great deals pop up here on the forum, just keep your eye out.

    Heres my pico. Betta falls tank $49.99, 2 gallon total volume. 10w heater $14.39 Light is a e-live led spare I had for my freshwater tank. Not sure if it will be strong enough to grow much but worth a shot. Has 3 blue pucks, 2 cool white pucks and one hd puck installed on it. Pucks are interchangeable and i have a few extra blues and whites I could add if need be. Only thing havent figured out yet is how to mount the light. Probably going to hang it from night stand using a few shelving brackets I have laying around tomorrow evening. total cost $64.38

    Does cost of tank count towards the equipment cost? Been toying the idea of picking up a Fluval Evo 5 for my night stand for a while and this may be a good excuse 😉.
  13. Frogfish

    “Inappropriate reefer” on youtube has one. Watching his videos had made me want a dedicated tank to keep one. He keeps a freshwater tank for ghost shrimp to feed him. Heres a link to his how to keep video
  14. Can't lower nitrate

    I was speaking with @albertareef at Holly’s frag sale this weekend and he had mentioned some additive that worked for him. He was unsure of what ot was called but said he would check. I have nitrates around 10 ppm and no matter how may water changes I do they seem to hover right at 10 ppm.
  15. Holly's Amazingly Awesome $10 Frag Sale

    Thank you for the great frags Holly. All the frags and your display tank looked amazing! It was nice meeting a few others from the forum as well.
