  1. Walt Disney frag!

    i will be the first to admit that my emoticon knowledge is lacking. If my tank was ready I would be all over that WD frag, especially at that price!
  2. Any Recommends for Refugium Lights

    i was either going to do two of the same ones I'm using now or one single self contained LED unit. there are a metric buttload of crappy LED units on eBay. Anything with a decent amount of reds should grow chaeto. I mean, look at this cheap ebay bulb. the chaeto grows like mad.
  3. Any Recommends for Refugium Lights

    yeah, mine is still going strong
  4. what is this??

    these are all over my sump. the look like tiny bug sacks or something but then I crush them, they feel like sponges??
  5. Walt Disney frag!

    I would buy it but I never spend less than $200 on a frag
  6. what is this??

    like sponge Bob sponges? via Google I think they are sycanoid sponges??
  7. Any Recommends for Refugium Lights

    sean... are you still using that bulb?? looking at fuge light options for the new tank
  8. 48" Giesemann Aurora

    So your running a custom set up then... all the hybrid lights I know of run led in the center. which makes sense as that is where all your coral is. I thought about doing a custom hood... but just too much work right now.
  9. 48" Giesemann Aurora

    thank you. It is super nice. It's the Porsche of reef lights. I'm picking up a 6' Giesman for the new tank:)
  10. 200 gallon deep dimension

    i know.. i know. Here is the thing.. if you come over here and help me lift it on the stand then I will take pictures of it. Everything is done.. i just need to move it. It's a great tank but is an absolute BEAST to move. thanks for the cleanup of the thread. Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk
  11. 200 gallon deep dimension

    gauging interest on this 200 gallon marineland deep dimension. it's 48"x36"x26" so basically awesome for reef aquascape. I got rid of the corner overflows and installed a custom overflow (drilled for beanimal). great condition tank with custom (beefy!) stand. With all the work I have been putting in plumbing a basement sump I am thinking I should get the tank I am lusting after.. 300 gallon 6x3. I can post pics soon. $750 Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk
  12. Heater broke, tank crashed

    about 2 years now. this is my favorite temp controller because it has an audible alarm Look at this on eBay http://www.ebay.com/itm/222669594835 I am also using the $12 mini controller you have to wire yourself from ebay and the inkbird. never had a problem with either of them.

  13. Heater broke, tank crashed

    i am a HUGE fan of these... Look at this on eBay http://www.ebay.com/itm/381948292510 no cheap circuit to stick on or off, and no glass to break. I had a heater cook a tank a long long time ago and i have also had glass ones break. sorry to hear about the loss Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk
  14. New Red Sea display!

    careful... it's a VERY seductive tank. Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk

  16. 200 gallon deep dimension

    well, i had more than a few when I posted it. Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk
  17. 200 gallon deep dimension

    That was the plan. I submitted drawings to their engineering team.. the back panel looks like Swiss cheese so we will see what they say about it. I'm excited about the new tank but i made the mistake of tallying up receipts for things I purchased for the new tank. Don't EVER do that. Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk
  18. 200 gallon deep dimension

    exactly. I'm not trying to hose anyone. I paid 1k for the setup a month ago and all I am keeping is the ocean motion. It's a SWEET tank for sure. There are soo many opportunities for a cool aquascape. I'll post it this weekend if i can manage to get it on the stand to take pictures. Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk
  19. 200 gallon deep dimension

    My first post stated that i was simply trying to gauge interest in the tank so I threw a number out there. I figured if i could sell this setup without taking a total bath then I would upgrade to a larger tank. It wasn't till I started actually working on everything that I discovered what a time suck it was so I took an honest look at everything and want to price it accordingly. A new 200DD is around $1500 without a stand and without a beananimal setup and schedule 80 bulkheads. It was never my intention to bait and switch, I apologize if it comes across like that.

  20. 200 gallon deep dimension

    So a little update as i have received quite a few emails about the 200. Against my better judgement I ordered a 6x3x2 from AGE so the 200 is going. I still have some work to do on the ghost style overflow and polish some of the glass where I removed the big gaudy corner overflows. I will post pictures or just start a new thread when I am done. I am likely going to list it in the $750 range after looking at the time and materials I have put into it. It will be a SWEET tank for someone. Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk

  22. Chaeto Reactors compared to Algae Scrubbers
